Ever have one of those days,…..

when you take the time to read the paper from front to back,…

perhaps while waiting for your grilled chicken to get done grilling,…

and you decide to give in to your guilty pleasure of reading your horoscope?

carefull tho, youre in a public place, and a dude, in my case, so you angle the paper in such a way that no one can see what it is youre reading :P.

anyway, later on that day,…

events and circumstances materialise around you, forming the bulk of your memories for the day. you get absorbed into what it is youre doing, and you forget about the gobbledygook you read about earlier while your stomach was rummbling.

especially cos youre additionally preoccupied with the fact that your nostrils arent blocked anymore, ( ahhhhhhhhh, snorrrrrrrrt, snifffffffffffffff, ahhhhhhhhhh).

and late in the night, while youre getting ready for bed, perhaps brushing your teeth, your left eyebrow cocks,… and you stop what youre doing for a second,….

“huh,….it was right afterall,….how odd,….”

especially since i’m pretty sure that the kuwait times horoscopes are off by atleast a day.

their main news articles are always fucking late, so i’ll doubt their horoscope readings are spot on πŸ˜›

you gotta love the irony of it all.

that particular day i was ass deep in thought about trading platforms, strategies, speed of order execution, interbank bids and offers, electronic charting, pivot points, straddles, stops, hedges, exponential moving averages,………..

pretty high tech stuff, on the surface atleast πŸ˜› .

the horoscope said i would have an epiphany of sorts. ummm, naturally it wasnt as specific as that but that was the jist of it πŸ˜›

old school gobbledygook,….. on the surface atleast πŸ˜› .

so it was old school stuff affecting new school stuff, but the thing is, the new school stuff involved old school math and reasoning, so i ditched the new school stuff in favour of the old school stuff, the old school stuff being more or less what the new school stuff is built on, making the new school stuff actually old school stuff made to look all spiffy and brand new.

added to that is the fact that this is a very old game that i play, ‘cept with new tools.

so its back to basics for me.

thank god for that :P, i was getting tired of trying to reinvent the wheel πŸ˜›

so provided the internet holds up, and certain other factors hold true, i might just have found my holy grail.

oddly enough, its not a system, which, unfortunately, is what sooooo many people are desperately looking for.

its as simple and as complicated as :

” i got it,…. and now i get it. “



Sick My Duck ya Batstard Flu!


that made me chuckle while googleing “sick”.

yup, summer colds suck ass majorly!

my nose feels like someone jammed a couple of corks up there, forehead feels like i ran into a brick wall, my teeth hurt for some reason, and my ears keep geting pressurised like on an airplane.

but apart from that, lifes been hunkydory more or less.

we’ve been practicing conversations in arabic class. my vocab sucks beyond “gattet-ha”, “sheeel! and shaal-ha” and “al souk taaban/maffee siyoulah”,…. but since thats a subject matter i hear about in arabic often enough my arabic teacher has been engaging me in conversations about al bourseh.

not sure if hes being a good teacher or just looking for a stock tip πŸ˜›

the local markets have been crappy of late, so no change from last week :P. i’m starting to stock up tho,….

i must admit tho, right now i feel more like a collector than an investor, especially since i was never a “trader” in the strictest sense of the word. while ranging markets suck, this is actually the normal course for things to take.

i’m watching second quarter results carefully, cos thats how you spot the morons who decided to speculate with their company’s spare cashflow. the second quarters volatility will also seperate the wheat from the chaff of the investment companies too. the ones that knew what they were doing wouldnt be doing that badly, while idiots would have crashed and burned.

wtf is chaff anyway?

forex,… hehehe,… truely a traders final frontier, cos nothing ever makes sense in those markets. having said that, experienceing the forex markets makes the equity markets a piece of cake.

the work on forex is going well, the systems doing exactly what it should and i’ll be going live after a couple more months. theres still alot of psychological issues that need ironing out.

funny innit, it seems my brain is getting in my way πŸ˜›

schtupid brain!

ok schtupid brain is going to go rest now cos idiot nose is still blocked up.

i cant be the only one that does this:

left nostril blocked,

left nostril get desperate to feel air flow thru,

lean / roll over to the right,

snot/mucuss in nose slides right,

left nostril goes ahhhhhhhhhhh,….

and vice versa,

rinse and repeat as necesesarry.

how the fuck is anyone getting any work done with this shitty ass internet connection ?!

sort it out for fucks sakes, especially if you want to become a financial hub!

i’ve decided to take the day off,….

or a few days, or a week, or however long it’s gonna fucking take.


Red Bull girls, the KSE and Ideas To Patent.

the red bull girls dropped by the KSE today πŸ˜€

a brilliant idea, and i’m surprised that they didnt come by sooner, especially with these sucky markets πŸ˜›

plus a bit of eye candy is always nice on a floor over populated with dishdashas !

if anyone reading this happens to work for red bull’s marketting campaign,…..



ahhh, the KSE,….. its been ages since i’ve posted anything on it. so heres a brief analysis of the past couple of months:

it sucked ass in may.

it sucked more ass in june.

its currently a black hole, sucking a royal amount of royal ass in july.

umm yeah, so i’ll never get a job at meryll lynch or al shall πŸ˜›

having said that, buying bluechips in may turned out to be a good idea, aint nothings happened to my holdings much, and i’ll be adding a bit more sometime this week. perhaps if and when the situation in lebanon deteriorates.

regarding lebanon i’m not going to say anything other than i hope it ends soon.

theres too much rhetoric being flung, and too much fingerpointing, and too much arab / israeli / jewish / muslim pride bullshit getting in the way of the fact that people are dieing there, and that both lebanese, israeli and kuwaiti friends of mine are still on the ground there.

the one thing i will add: if you really want to help, then book a flight out there once the fighting is over. go spend your raise there. go invest in the local economy.

your rallys, your shouting, your burning of flags doesnt put food on the table.

neither will your misguided allegiance to hizbollah, nor your growing of curly sideburns and nodding.

and do the dead a fucking favour, set aside your ethnic / religious pride.

cos if you sit down and think about it, jewish pride has killed the most jews, and arab pride has killed the most arabs through out history.

Ideas to patent:

false prophet detector:
– this is an idea sparked by replies to the previous post, but i thought it post worthy in itself. so in case you didnt read it,……

you can be the most holy of holy men, the most evil of the axis, the smartest of geekdom, or the most amazing lay in the world,….

but at the start ( or end, depending on your routine) of the new day,….

we all gotta drop our pants and grunt!

the trully divine, in keeping with his or her divinity would be a real coinesseur of the finest things in life. he/she would be like ahh apples, trully gods work. or, ahhh caviar, fishy gifts of god individually gift wrapped for mortals to enjoy,….. and on and on,….

so inkeeping with the amount of food the dude/ette would consume,…

my false prophet detector kit would include

5 kg’s of various cuts of meat

1 inflatable buttplug

kidnapping of false prophets and subsequent restraining of said falsies not included, but can be arranged for an additional fee.

the deluxe version of this would include constipation medication πŸ˜€

The Krispy Dixie Childrens Option Exchange, named after the originator of the idea,….

(so you can arrest her if it turns out to be not quite legal :P)

an option is a financial instrument.

its a contract between yourself and your broker.

it gives you the right to buy or sell a stock or commodity at a fixed price some time in the future.

but youre not obliged to buy or sell, you just have the right to do so, at the price you agreed upon, if you want to in the future.

the right to buy is called a “call”

and the right to sell is called a “put”

get it?

so no more empty threats when your kids misbehave πŸ˜›

oooo and no more empty threats if your younger brother or sister keeps “borrowing” your favourite crayons ! πŸ˜€ ( like hes gonna fuckin return the orange crayon he used up pffft! )


i dont have kids yet, but i know from the hell i raised that my parents would have liked to have leverage like that πŸ˜›

note to self, first potential customer of the Options exchange: brad and angelina πŸ˜€

tagged again dammit !
