2014 – Launch Sequence Initiated

So I had to start somewhere right?

A simple blog. A page…….an outlet.

Something to get me back in contact with “actual human beings” as opposed to the endless hours toiling away with machines….technology. Something “of the now” and not of the “visions of the future” – endlessly circling in my head.

A “coming down to Earth” – if you will.

And so it’s been. Quite a year indeed.

One tiny miniscule, meaningless, irrelevant year in the grand scheme of things. A year where I’d chosen to reach out, to change things, to participate , to contribute  – and to grow.

On that level – I’m satisfied.

Could I have traded it better? Sure. Could I have “blogged” it better? I imagine so.

2014 promises to be a very exciting year as ( in case you hadn’t noticed ) the future has arrived. We are moving forward at breakneck speed, with “computer power doubling – yet halving in size” faster than we can blink an eye. The charts have truly gone “parabolic”. The implications are immeasurable.

Those not willing to do the work, to stay tuned, to remain “in the know” will be rolled over immediately, and even for those “who do” choose to put in the effort…it will be a challenge.

I look forward to “stretching my wings” moving forward, as this is what I’ve been working towards the best part of my entire life. I embrace the future. and I “want” it  – now.

I want to wish all of you the very best in 2014, and I want to thank you once again for your continued support,

2014 may very well see Kong get this spaceship of the rooftop……as launch sequence has been initiated.

Buckle up. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

    How to access your face book if one doesn’t have a FB. In principle do not want FB.

      I don’t use FB at all either so don’t worry about it.

      I’ve updated my graphics only – otherwise…..you’ve got me here at the blog and thats the best way / place to stay in contact regardless.

        Hi Kong,

        Thank you for all of your warm and informative posts. Trading can be a
        lonely journey, but your blog makes it far less so.

        Wish you all the best for 2014 mate, and many more great trades.

        Cheers Rick

    Hey Kong … Happy new year to you and everyone else … don’t wish the future was already here mate it will come quick enough … My youngest just turned 31 and it only feels a few years ago that I was that age … in the early 1980’s I vividly remember someone said they were going to fax some details to the city and my reply was “what’s a Fax” … so you can see that I have been excited ..with the digital age … Mobile phones, (my first one was as big as a house brick), computers that started with tapes that if you lost power you lost all information, then cardboard floppy’s with two slots, then came the hard disk that was thought never to be able to be bigger than 640K and when that was overcome a harder 3.5″ floppy, then cdrom’s, USB’s and don’t forget TV which later became Coloured and are now lightweight and Huge and 3D … Also watching live as Armstrong and Aldren walking on the moon for the first time… by the way (without looking it up) can anyone say who the third person was that remained in the command module … Hint is its the same name of a famous Irish freedom fighter … Anyway enough of looking back the future is indeed going to be exciting and for everyone under 50 will see more than I will … Nostradamus predicts a smart person is due to find a way of increasing life expectancy this century !!! … Unlikely but one can only hope … LOL …

      Hi Graham and Happy New Year!

      I marvel that in the short time we’ve had “personal computers” ( I had my first back in my teens ) they’ve shrunk down to the size of our pockets with more power than a room full of them a decade prior – wow…really moving fast.

      I’m putting a “future kong post” together on exteneded life expectancy as we speak, and did have to look up the third fellow (damn!).

      Have a great day.

    Kong! I sent you a Facebook friend request. I embrace the future also – as long as it’s not “Planet of the Apes” 🙂

    • Forex Kong December 31, 2013 / 8:29 am

      I think I’ve got the request replied to now.

    • Forex Kong December 31, 2013 / 8:30 am

      Fantastic Careydina.

      It’s gonna be a good one!

      All the best to you!

    I’d be A. Hung on $FB. Feel free to accept the friend request, or not.

    Obviously one of my New Year Resolution is to take more seriously the trading part of my life, and to start actually extracting money from the markets on a regular basis, which is not the case at the moment (don’t laugh). I can do green, just not consitently enough for the moment. Even better if i can even start make a living out of it (still seems very far though). Most of my reds are trades that went well and then wrong all while i was doing my day job (hello bloody yen), or plain poorly timed. My analysis are still valid most of the time. Although one might argue that if i can’t get the timing right i can’t analyze shit. (pardon my french).

    I’m closing in on 30, and i definitely feel i have to take my life to the next step, something i haven’t felt since i had to choose a college to attend. I’ve been riding the comfort wave since then, and it is time to stop and start swimming back to catch the next one.

    I’m on board Kong, and quite eager to take off.

    *raising my glass of champagne*
    To the future!

      You are “so totally on the right track” as you are looking to improve.

      I don’t know where I first heard it but, somewhere I read that – “if a person even puts in an effort and “tries” let alone sets their sights on “success” – they’ve already differenciated themselves for 9 out of 10 people! That narrows the field now doesn’t it as….most people just give up! On anything….On everything! So…..DON’T GIVE UP!

      It will come. It will take time – more time….but it will come.

      Here’s to you in the new year man! Go man go!

    Happy New Year, Kong…and all for that matter. Great blog. Looking forward to 2014 and making some decent loot. My personal bet is that 2014 will be very volatile. Stay nimble, cash in hand a lot of the time. Could be many great trading opportunities in 2014. Will be interesting to see if any of this Kress Cycle crap comes true as some economists have been saying 2014 will mark the end of a 120 yr deflationary cycle. If the last 30 years weren’t inflationary I am scared to see what real inflation looks like then haha!

    • Forex Kong December 31, 2013 / 11:23 am

      With confidence in my “big” long term trade being: “short humanity / long interplanetary travel” – It’s hard for me to get wrapped up / consider some of these “shorter term views” ( hilarious eh J…..as – even a 120 year cycle can still looks short term?) when the investment landscape changes so rapidly.

      I love looking ahead ( my passion ) but respect the fact that… there are so many factors “near / medium term” that could potencially throw any “futurists/madmans” predictions completely out the window. I just stick with the overlaying “macro theme”.

      Ie……”short humanity / long interplanetary travel”.

      Rest assured, if human hands have been anywhere near it…..there’s a fantastic chance they’ll have found a way to screw it up no?

      • JSkogs December 31, 2013 / 12:53 pm

        Pretty hard to disagree with that plan. I’ll be urging my kids to get into physics if they have any math skills. Namely propulsion systems haha. Until we slow down the use of hydrocarbons and in general quit effin up the planet it’s pretty hard to disagree with getting outta here someday. But in the meantime great fortunes must be amassed! I was ok in physics but not good enough to build my own spaceship so I’ll have to pay for a ticket. Gotta get earning!
