But the blog is a free place where a guy gives opinions, sometimes with bad language (I am an oh so faulty human after all) and since this is not a professional enterprise, I commit to just try to be myself as best as possible. Hence, you should not consider much of what goes on here as real or more accurately, comprehensive analysis. You are not paying for it my friends. If a naughty word or two leaks out, I hope you understand. If I do not tie up all loose ends, I hope you understand. I have a lot of work to do.
As for Otto, the man most certainly did not get under my skin. He has got his opinions and that is what I like about the guy. He is a challenge. If anyone read me as being frustrated or driven to profanity - as one reader evidently did - rest assured that I was just pleased to have something to write about this morning. Again, it isn't easy to produce a blog day after day, week after week... At least a blog that anyone wants to read.
Hey look, have a great weekend all. It's just the markets. We should keep them in perspective and not let them get us off our game.
Edit (4:52) Regarding pally boy Otto, I am not nearly so mentally weak as to let criticism greatly affect me (though I'll always try to let it improve me), and that goes double when it comes from a friend with whom I share mutual respect. Subscriber JC sends the following, which I think sums it up pretty well.
Otto promotes you and your website at least once every 2 weeks.
I believe he has integrity. Clearly he is yanking your chain.
NFTRH and IKN are the only paid services I bother with.
It's my job to mesh them and use the conclusions to advantage.
Let me thank you for the work you put in.
I've had best ever results during past 2 years.
Okay, now have a simply excellent weekend.
