The Insightful Trader


Welcome to The Insightful Trader. I think you’ll find our site entertaining, thought provoking and educational. This site has been in the planning and development stages for many months and we will continue to add features. We hope you enjoy. If so, please tell others. Once you read thru this home page once you may want to bookmark the Daily Commentary page as your lead in page. Don’t forget to sign up for our RSS feed and email updates. Don’t worry, we won’t feed your email box with spam and we never sell or share our names.

Remember, this is a blog. Please feel free to leave comments or questions, post trade setups you may find attractive, etc. Just be respectful fo your fellow readers.

The Insightful Trader is divided into numerous categories:

Home – that’s here, and other than telling a little about the site and posting special announcements, that’s it.

Daily Commentary – This is where I would recommend you start each day. We’re not going to go into lot of market data here, you can get that anywhere. We will try to point out anything that we may think is significant. It may be in any of the financial markets be it commodities, currency or stocks

Trade of the Day – Often we will try to give you an example of an exceptional trade we saw during the past few days, lets hope we see some. This may be a stock trade, an option trade or a currency trade. Part of this is to help you learn what to look for in a trade setup. These may be intraday trades, short term swing trades or attractive longer term trades.

Editorials – This speaks for itself.  You’ll get to hear either Jonathan or myself  give our two cents worth on a wide array of topics that are economics related on a weekly basis. Should be thought provoking at the least.

Reviews – This is where we’ll will share with you a completely biased view, one way or the other, of a product, article, or book that I have run across that looks interesting and may be of interest to you.

Education – I’ll cover some tips on trader education and review specific setups that have worked and some that haven’t and show you some of the techniques I use. Primarily technical in nature, I believe this will be of help to many of you.

Links – Some of our favorite blogs, sites and other favorite postings. Jonathan has a great list of some of his favorite economic sites.

Charts – I use Fidelity, Tradestation as well as Stockcharts, so this is to acknowledge their product and allowing me to display their charts.
