A2A with Jim Comiskey

125

Longtime commodity broker Jim Comiskey stopped by TFMR again today to share his wisdom and experience through our A2A webinar format.

Some of the topics covered in this podcast include:

  • How markets have changed over the past 30 years with the advent of computer trading
  • What strategy Jim employs to profitably trade in HFT-dominated markets
  • His own, personal trading ideas that he thinks will profit in the months ahead

Good stuff from a guy who has seen it all over a 30+ year career in the Chicago commodity pits. I think you'll enjoy listening.

I'm wondering....

This is for Turd and Jim both. What financial perception has changed the most over your career?

Ah NVM it sounds as if Turd covered it.

Comment from Jim

"Jamie Dimon, who I would grab by the throat and rip out his trachea."

That comment wins the internet.

USLV

I know I said I wouldn't sell, but nuts $0.98 in two days. I don't like the way the Dow went back up and silver flat lined. Probably will be hit over night and hopefully I can get back in when silver hovers around $14.80 tomorrow.

I hate the manipulated markets, I want to see real pricing. I will probably take the profits and buy physical so I have something to play checkers with. Darn, Putin has gold chess pieces, I'm sure.

trade uslv for agq

then write otm calls

try to have it both ways

2 weeks ago I bought gld Oct 114 calls at 29 cents--today sold the Oct 117.5 calls for 32 cents--I have a "free trade" going and if GLD goes to 117.50 by Oct 16 I make $350 per contract with no investment. Have to get above 114 and start making nice money.
