Looking ahead…

Well, looks like 2015 is here with a bang, and markets kick off the year with some volatility. Though we often focus on short term patterns and flows, it pays to keep an eye on the big picture. My friend Andrew Barber, wrote a piece this morning in which he featured my longer term outlook on a number of markets and asset classes. It will be interesting to see how a number of conflicting forces resolve early this year, and how market action shapes up over the coming weeks.

For my blog, there are a few interesting things in the works. If you haven’t checked out my (totally free) trading course, the beginning of the year is a great time to do so. This might be fairly “big news”: I am starting to sketch out and to consider creating a programming course that will take someone from little or no knowledge to basic proficiency in Python. This will allow people to do tasks like analysis, backtesting, and automated trading. I know there are a number of resources out there already, but I don’t think there’s one that does everything that needs to be done in one place. Stay tuned for more information (and I will possibly be asking for guinea pigs, lab rats, or beta testers (whichever term you’d prefer!))

Some exciting things are also in the works for my firm, Waverly Advisors. Very soon, we will be launching a service that will allow us to put many more ideas in our clients’ hands, perhaps as many as three or four times what we currently do, and we are also looking at an asset management product to launch in the foreseeable future. Stay tuned for more info on that, as well.

I hope everyone had a great holiday season, and let’s may 2015 all it can possibly be!

    Raising my hand to be the lab rat. Learning to program Python was on my to-do list for 2015 – actually even put it into my day job’s G&O. Happy new year!

    Adam, wanted to thank you for your free course. I completed it over the past few weeks and just started it again from the very first video for round 2!
    What I am really looking forward to is Section III of your course !
