Midweek links and reading

A good reminder that sometimes more information is not the answer. (MartinKronicle)

A little out of date (my fault for missing last week’s link update), but a point that must be made. Be careful of simple analyses like this, and be very careful when anyone talks to you about “unusual activity in the options market”. (A Dash of Insight)

At first glance, I disagree with the conclusion that something has changed, but I certainly could be wrong. A thought provoking read. (Price Action Lab Blog)

The problem with investor behavior is that people always make the same mistakes. (If you think you don’t have clients, you’re wrong. If you don’t have clients, you are the client!) (The Reformed Broker)

    Actually I just decided yesterday to go back to paper for my business plan, weekly playbook and journal. I used to read almost anything on a screen and did not have any type of paper at all for my trading activities, but am getting more and mor convinced that this is the wrong way. Not sure how to express it, but there may also be a kind of “ceremony” to take a pen and paper and write down manually your thoughts etc.
    Thanks for the dolphins link, I’ll never look at them the same way, especially after clicking on the further links on gigantic jerks…

      I certainly do things on the computer too, especially because it’s nice to have the record. For important things I will often draft on paper first and then do the finished copy on the screen. Figure out what works for you.

      Ah,yes… the dolphins. I figured with the market this quiet this week, dolphins getting high on pufferfish were actually news-worthy. 🙂
