#OT Just popping in to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope this crazy market hasn’t drive any of you stark raving mad. I’m still enjoying my sabbatical though missing the market interactions more and more. If you are into out of this worldly events check out the New Horizons fly by of Ultima Thule. Pictures some time around 11AM tomorrow. Have a great safe one and see you some time in 2019.
#OT Morning / Afternoon all. I am going to take some time away from active trading. Sort of a sabbatical. Maybe on the order of 3-6 months. Life’s little pleasures have been monopolizing my time of late and I am unfocused. I closed my leaps for a small profit and have a few (4) underwater positions that will need regular maintenance to get back to even. Of course the long term portfolio needs to be managed per usual. I’ll pop in from time to time and be back regularly once I get things caught up. Just to squash the fake news my wife is still here, the farm is intact though the weeds are very happily taking over, I’m not going to jail, and I’m definitely not running for public office. Though the latter two might go together. Jeff this is a gem of a community. I am so honored to be a member. Thank you all. Happy and successful trading. Later Jon
