Academic Turned Trader

I am a political scientist by training, having received a B.A. and M.A. in one of the least marketable college majors known to humanity. After struggling to find a full time position in the post-2008 world of higher education, I turned to the world of trading.

When people say "don't fight the Fed", I totally get it and agree completely. But at the same time, I always cringe when I hear someone on TV (or social media) say things like "just close your eyes and buy" or "buy with both fists." Overthinking may be counterproductive, but the opposite can be just as bad.

I was initially of the opinion that the Coronavirus scare would be just like all of the other pandemic scares of the last 40 years or so.

I would benefit massively if Sanders or Warren won the election this year and started wiping out student loan debt. Yet I still can't support that kind of moral hazard being set in motion. Many people saved up for college (or their parents did), and I can only imagine how disgusted they would feel to see a bunch of financially irresponsible millennials get most if not all of their doubt wiped out by the stroke of a pen.

I'm no dollar bull, but it still seems like it may have some gas left in the tank (and still pretty oversold). 92's in DXY could come and test the trendline. Once rates and dollars don't hang over gold's head, it will probably be a great buy. I'm on the sidelines til then.

I may look into alternatives like Android when I'm ready for a new phone (hopefully at least a couple of years from now).
