I Lied To The Bank – Hello Internet

So I lied to the bank.

At the time I was just a starving musician, living in an illegal basement suite, moonlighting as a “commercial painter” with a group of misfits I’d met at the bar. Clinging to ladders by day, and my dreams by night – I “painted and played” enough to keep myself in “beers and macaroni” ’til the day I first caught wind of some thing they called “The Internet”.

Hello Internet.

I’d been involved with computers from a relatively early age. Deemed a “gifted child” somewhere around the age of nine, I was fortunate enough to of had a particular school teacher take an interest in me. Living in a remote area, far, far from anything….incredibly – I was given the opportunity to learn. And so I did.

It took me about 15 minutes to whip up that “skeleton business plan” I presented to the Royal Bank of Canada, outlining intentions of starting a “commercial paint company of my own”, and leaving my employer in the dust.

Loan granted, I walked directly across the street and blew the entire $3200.00 on a brand new PC computer.

Hello Internet.

Six weeks later the loan was repaid in full. Three months later I was spear fishing off the tiny Islands of St Kitts, Nevis – hosting “lobster boils” at my beach side condo.

Good bye Canada.

Hello Internet.

And so it begins……

        The USD action Farhan. It’s putting in a solid low here so…….we’ve got some very solid trades setting up for the weeks to come.

        U.S Equities? I don’t really care as……it’s just more of the same ditribution / pump for the last of the retail guys to get sucked in.

        Your time is coming soon.

    Hi Kong,

    I followed the “And so it begins…” link and the subsequent comments were a bit confusing.

    Do you mean that the regular blog will no longer contain specific trade suggestions and strategies, so only the premium service members will get those things?

    Full Disclosure: I am already a premium service member and this is an unpaid testimonial.
    The weekly & daily analysis and updates have been very helpful to me. Combining the macro Fundies with the short and medium term TA has freed me from watching the market tick by tick. I’ve adjusted possy size smaller so now I hang with the inevitable zigs and zags and remain confident that I’m in sync with the bigger picture.
    Farhan, I am certain God has already given you the tools you need to succeed. He is waiting for you to do the work and you are already making great progress! I appreciate your comments.

      Strange Dev…..I see no comments / anything at the link suggesting “anything about that”.

      If you “wheren’t logged in” to to the Members site though…..you’d of seen red text as yes the content at the Members site is protected, and only bits are available for non members.

      I’ll continue posting general market overview and trade “general trade ideas” at the regualr blog sure, but nothing like the trade table, real time chatter, specific buy levels etc no.

      • devilyell May 2, 2014 / 10:05 am

        My bad. I was not logged in saw the red instead. I’ll log in first from now on. What the hell…I paid for it!
        Have a good one folks.

        • Forex Kong May 2, 2014 / 10:10 am

          Exactly my friend!

          The pages allow for “lurkers” to get a little bit of the general info, but unfortunately not any of the meat and potatoes.

          Trade talk and all the specifics are rolling over there daily Dev so….now you can get busy at two blogs too!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Forex Kong May 20, 2014 / 7:38 pm

      Thank you so much for your honest critique.

      These days it’s really about information, and those that value the information here are unlikely too concerned about “design”.

      If you want to throw your hat in the ring by all means….post / send me any layout / mock ups you’ve got.
