About

Prologue:

Very quickly, the visitor to this site will notice the overall tone is much different than a typical financial analysis blog.

That’s because the host has an engineering background not a financial one.

That background included leadership in aircraft flight test and certification.

It was a profession, where if an error was made, it could (and sometimes did) result in fatalities.

It’s a lot different from the ‘comforts’ of financial analysis.

If the ‘edge’ of the posts do not appeal to the visitor, all is well.

There are plenty of comfy, safe space financial sites that will hold one’s hand while the markets eviscerate their accounts.

At this point in time, we’re in a war. A financial war.

Wouldn’t you want to hear from someone that’s been figuratively ‘shot at’ their entire career as opposed to someone who takes client money (disguised as a ‘fee’) and goes off to fine dining and vacations?

After attempting to be hired by a nationwide broker and rejected (of course) along with posting and writing for years on SeekingAlpha (a waste of time), I have come to realize, those in the business have it sewn up tight.

A former broker from a major firm once told me and I quote:

“You’ll never be hired. You’re too much of a threat.”

Yes, the threat of raising the standards and expecting everyone to actually do some work. Dangerous indeed.

I had yet another broker tell me (again, quoting):

“If my clients really knew what I was doing (i.e. next to nothing), they would fire me.”

Back in the day, I actually wanted to be part of this crowd. That is, before I found out more about them.

Why someone wants to live a life of mediocrity and cowardice is beyond me.

These days, there’s plenty of fear. Now, our average coward literally has a smorgasbord of fear choices. 🙂

What one does with their fear(s) is the important part.

This site’s objective is to ‘put it out there’. The analysis or perception could be right and work out or completely wrong.

However, from a personal standpoint, I’m not going keep from presenting an unpopular analysis because I’m afraid of the response (or lack of).

By today’s standards, telling the truth is an act of bravery in itself. This site attempts to present that truth.

So, the choice is yours.

There are no guarantees in life or on these pages. The posts here are intended to search out and present the truth of the markets.

I get that truth by using Wyckoff Analysis; a recognized but still little known (or mastered) technique.

These pages document one leader’s perspective on current events; present the analysis and discern the signs of the times.

You’re welcome to look around and take what is useful.

Let’s get on to the description.

The Danger Point® Is:

A Trading Log:

It’s a trading log where ideas are developed, researched and price action analyzed. 

If warranted, a position is initiated and then closed out.

A Trading Tool

It’s a tool for the host firm to catalog trade ideas or other market related information. 

Searches for a particular market ticker or trade idea can be easily performed.

A Catalog of Ideas

The progression of a trade can be easily followed through use of the trade vehicle ticker, such as ‘UNG’ or some other point of reference such as ‘Natural Gas’.

A Data Library

The host firm’s data vault goes all the way back to the December crash of 1899. 

Keeping track of all the data has become unwieldy.  This site aids in the efficient tracking and cataloging of reference material.

The Danger Point® Is Not: 

Not Advice

It’s not an advisory service. 

It’s not financial advice.

It does not issue buy or sell recommendations. 

It does not engage in paid solicitation or advertising

Not Certified

It’s not certified in any way and is not registered with the SEC.
