I will continue to comment on the markets from time to time. Right here. When I feel like it, and have time.
The daily writeups?
Maybe a technical every day or three. If I feel like it.
For now the forum stays.
For two hours+ of my time a day on The Ticker and videos, I asked for little - just that those of you who read this, and find it of value, put in the time and effort to "make me broke" with all the faxes I had to send to lawmakers.
An act that, if it is ever accomplished, will actually solve the problem.
I know it will work because I've done it before. It works. Been there, done that, have the T-shirt and know that its effective. And in any event - even if I'm totally full of crap about effectiveness - what am I asking for here? 60 seconds of your time?
There are those who have said I have no "right" to ask for such a thing. Ok, fair enough. But nobody else has a right to ask, say much less demand, that I provide this service. I don't charge for it, I in fact ask nothing.
Don't ask about a subscription newsletter. There won't be one. The "fee" for the last six months was one minute of your time. I'm not doing this for money; I'm doing this to try to solve a problem. Yours. Mine. My daughter's. Your son's. Personal profit from subscriptions never was and never will be the goal.
Either you are Citizens of this Republic or you are leaches. Being a leach has become institutionalized, inbred and popular. It is taught to you as a kid from your first day in Government School when your pencils and paper were confiscated by the teacher and put into a pile, to be doled out for "less fortunate."
I'm not providing any more free blood to be sucked, and I can't be paid to feed leaches.
You had your fix of morphine, now show me why there should be more forthcoming.
Over 31,000 unique people read The Ticker every month.
Out of that, only 4% of you could be bothered to take 60 seconds out of your day and click your mouse - in two weeks time.
Facts are what they are.
Until I see commitment from those who have taken for six months - commitment to do something other than take, day after day - I am backing off.
60 seconds, it would appear, was too much to ask.
Enjoy the next few days or weeks in the markets kids.
Please, go long. All of you.
Its the "one true CNBC way." It may even pay off. For a while.
I know what's coming, and I'm going to watch with bemusement, just as I did in '99 and 2000.
What I won't do is provide analysis and commentary - at enormous cost in my personal time - to more than 30,000 who clearly think its worth reading, when only 4% of them will lift a finger to protect their children's future - and their own.
No technical tonight, or tomorrow - you're on your own going into The Fed meeting.
I wish you the best of luck.
I'm going diving.
