Free FDNN Letter Format Change
On Thursday I already had completed a lengthy Draft of the Free of charge From the Desk of Nick Nicolaas (FDNN) letter for today when we received an e-mail from a representative of Martin Armstrong’s Princeton Economics International (PEI) asking us to stop writing our Free FDNN letters in the way we did. They mentioned that many of our readers interpreted that our trading decisions were somehow directed by PEI when in fact PEI did not provide such recommendations. The e-mail stated: “This creates the false impression that we are somehow responsible for your trading, which is simply not the case.”
On Friday and Saturday we did a quick survey and PEI was absolute correct. Although, we constantly informed our readers that we were not in any way part of the PEI organisation, our own quick survey revealed the fact that several of our FDNN subscribers did still think we were somehow affiliated with PEI which of course is not the case.
PEI also informed us that we did not have authorization to advertise the Socrates Service or to advertise using Martin Armstrong’s name consequently, we will stop that as well.
Although we have written about MA and SOC since October 2002 (see October 13 "The Way I see it" and October 18, 2002 "What Will the Future Bring" FDNN letters) and have brought them many Investor Level subscribers and WEC conference attendees, during the past 14 years we have never been ask to stop until now.
There are many, many Letterwriters who plagiarize MA work without giving him and PEI the credit they deserve. In contrast, we have ALWAYS given PEI and MA the credit they richly deserve. Over the years, it has cost PEI millions of dollars perfecting the SOC artificial intelligent computer which has led to the phenomenal stage it is at today.
We will be happy to comply with everything PEI asks for but, will continue to write about anything that is already in the public domain such as MA’s daily Blog.
“The Week that Was”
As aforementioned we did draft a lengthy FDNN letter to you however, because we were asked to stop disseminating out FDNN letter the way we did therefore, this will be a short version of “The Week that Was” and there will be no more SOC analysis for Monday and the Week.
Truth be known, I am quite happy to stop because, now I can spend more time and focus on our Day Trading efforts.
“Day Trading this Week”
Based on 1, 2 and 3 below we probably will not Day Trade this week and in the event we do, it will be very mildly and cautiously.
Day Trading Futures & The lessons we learned
- Begin each Trading Day by first studying the Socrates (SOC) analysis, its forecasts and signals before considering what instrument to trade;
- Read the SOC analysis and its GMW Comments from the TOP down
- Yearly, Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, to Daily (MA relies on the Weekly more than the Daily);
- Do NOT trade when the SOC signals are IFFY and choppy or are going sideways for a specific market;
- Do NOT place an order and hold any positions overnight or over a weekend;
- Do NOT place orders until after 6:00am PST;
- Trading dries up after 9:30am PST on Fridays and you need to be Flat by then for the weekend;
- Make LONG trades ONLY on the basis SOC’s Bullish signals;
- DO NOT trade on days where SOC cannot foresee future events such as Yellen speaking at an FOMC meeting. SOC only receives historical fact input and therefore, SOC cannot predict future events that may unfold at a future date;
- It is all about Return on Investment (ROI) and one (1) profitable trade in any Week, any Month or in a Year will ensure you reach your Goal of better than average ROI per annum.
The Monarchy and the Search for Stability
Last week I ended my FDNN letter with: “Regards from Mining Interactive Corp. in Vancouver Canada where the our Royals, the Duke (Wil) and Duchess (Kate) of Cambridge visited yesterday together with their Children Prince George and Princess Charlotte,”
Low and behold I got several e-mails asking me that, since this had nothing to do with Marin Armstrong (MA) Socrates (SOC) or making money, why I did I write that?
My answer to these investors is this: In a chaotic and uncertain world, it is important that we are still able to point at stability. Dictators and Presidents come and go but, the British Monarchy has been around for hundreds of years. It is reasonable to state that we can point at it and say “STABILTY”.
On Saturday September 24 Will, Kate and their children arrived for a Canadian royal tour of British Columbia and the Yukon. After all the years of welcoming royals to Canada we saw the largest crowd of thousands of Royal Watchers ever in this Province who lined the streets to welcome this young royal family to our Provincial Capital Victoria, and British Columbians continued this warm welcome and embraced the royals throughout “The week That Was”.
Worldwide people crave for stability and it is no different here in Canada. Although in Canada most citizens are born into freedom, we are very much cognisant of the fact that most of the world is in conflict and at war. The world we live in is uncontrolled and chaotic and all of us are yearning and looking for STABILTY.
When we welcomed the Royals our Provincial Capital with a huge crowd on Saturday September 24, 2016. The crowd waited for hours to get a glimpse of the visiting royals and it confirmed my strong belief that the want for STABILITY was part of the reason for the great and unprecedented royal watcher numbers.
Many years in advance of events; MA gave us serious warning of the chaos and INSTABILITY that would unfold. In December 2011 when I attended the Marin Armstrong 2011 Conference in Philadelphia, Marty showed us this Slide. This SOC generated Slide presented by Marty pinpointed the “Economic Confidence Model” (ECM) turnaround target date of September 30/October 1, 2015 (2015.75) which showed us the Socrates warning of what “The Future Would Bring Us”.
As MA says, the World is in crisis and dead-brain politicians may very well set off a run on the banks starting in Germany and reverberate worldwide. A major banking collapse would wipe out the savings of an unsuspecting public and will utterly destroy entire economies and this may be the tipping point that will aid BREXIT and send massive waves of capital rushing into the US$, the only currency in the world where you can park huge blocks of capital.
He also continues to remind us: “the future is anything but predictable for the average person consequently investment is on hold. People are saving (hoarding cash) and deflation is continuing globally. Meanwhile, we are seeing world trade collapse. This is why the markets have been coiling. Money will not begin to really move until it figures out the direction.”
Could Water Become the Next Exchange Traded Commodity?
Lara Smith Posted a very interesting article on “Investor Intel”. The article can be accessed Here. It explores the shortage of Water in many parts of the world which is being addressed already by many counties. MA
In the past MA also wrote about water and informed us last May that the UN and World Banks want to make sure it is being taxed (Click Here) in order to keep braindead overlords in their overpaid jobs.
Many, many years ago MA suggested the following investments [MA has over time written in his Blog about water as a commodity and based on that are my comments as to how those investments should be viewed today]:
- Arable land with a dependable climate [we have to be cognisant of the climate Cycle changes]
- Oil refining capacity [not so sure about that as an investment today]
- Water Treatment capacity [absolutely]
- Drinking water, bottled or piped [absolutely]
- Coastal access, harbours and ports [absolutely]
- Palladium/platinum and diamonds [absolutely]
- Real Estate in long-standing, distinctive locations [still true but, subject to MA’s PEI “Real Estate Reports”]
- Antiques, fine arts, stamps and coins [absolutely]
- Commodities without futures and options markets [absolutely]
I am reading the book “Paris Letters” by Janice MacLeod. I highly recommend you pick up a copy. Janice wrote the book by relying on her journal, her Blog and her memory. Paris Letters is a wonderful book and on the top of Page 9 Janice writes: “Whose dream life am I living? Because it’s certainly not mine.” Yes, that is what the book is all about and as you read it (I am on page 185) you ask yourself “What Dream life do I want for myself” ???. It is NOT easy to find a copy. I wanted some copies to give to friends and after searching all over Vancouver finally found two copies in a bookstore. I am sure it will be reprinted soon and I suppose translated into several languages. In any event as aforesaid “get a copy” then curl up somewhere and enjoy.
