Blog Announcement (That's All Folks!)

Around this time of year I do a lot of traveling and I am also involved with many activities after the stock market closes. With such a busy schedule I've come to realize it would be impossible for me to keep this blog going, so I've decided to discontinue this blog.

I've enjoyed my short time online and I've enjoyed talking with many of you via email or through the comments section on my blog. I'd like to also say that 99.999% of the comments and emails I've received have all been positive which I am thankful for. I hope I was able to offer something of value to some of you, and if that's the case then it was all worth it for me.

I'd like to thank those of you who have taken the time out to leave comments on my blog, and I'd also like to thank the many wonderful bloggers out there who have placed links on their blog to my posts. I really do appreciate that and I'm going to take the time out to thank you.

I'd like to thank the following people:
Jim from the Kingsland Report, Trader Mike, ZenTrader, NYSE Trader, Brett Steenbarger, Trader Jamie, Yaser from Equity Investment Ideas, wallstreet examiner, DowntownTrader, VixAndMore, FlyOnWallStreet and HeadlineCharts. There are other bloggers that I haven't mentioned and I thank them as well. The names mentioned above are the people who have sent me the most web traffic.

I wish all of you success in the market and may every trade you make be profitable..God Bless

Best of luck in your trades and take care.

Yaser Anwar said...

Sad day....I hope you return when you have sometime. Do less posts, once/twice a week but do so, when you've got more time.

I'm sorry to hear that, Kevin. Your blog is definitely one of the good ones and one that I never missed. I wish you all the best.

"Weekend guest blogger" is becoming a pretty popular phenomenon if you're ever interested in sharing your thoughts from time to time.

daveo said...

Thanks Kevin, Your friend or foe post helped me personally more than you can imagine !

Simon said...

Great blog. I hope you return.

Best of luck.

Mr. Vahlberg said...

Bummer! I've really been enjoying your thoughts on the market. Thanks for sharing while your life allowed. Best of luck.


pleadership said...

I hear you Kevin. I also stopped my blog for the same reasons. Running a blog with integrity is not an easy thing to do (as I initially thought). If anything, your approach should have taught the new traders that success comes from keeping things simple. Good luck.

dk said...

Kevin, you'll be missed. Hopefully the blogging bug will re-emerge as a new chapter in your life sometime in the future. Until then, I wish you health, happiness and prosperity.



JB said...

Your insightful market comments will be missed. Wow, my bookmark folder titled "markets" just took a blow. Hope to see this blog come back at some point in the future!

OptionPundit said...

All the best Kevin. Your blog was such a nice pleasure to read. On one hand, it seems sad as you are discontinuing this blog, but on the other hand I am happy for you as you have made better choice for life.

Profitable choices, happy life,
God bless you,

Truly a sad day today for the trading community! I am going to miss your blog a lot as I read it every day. Thank you for all your insights and wisdom. I wish you all the best and hope to see you blogging again sometime in the future.

Sorry to hear you are retiring the blog, but I understand your reasons for doing so. Hopefully, you can resume blogging, even if part time, when your schedule allows you to in the future. Thanks for the great content you have posted on your blog and enjoy your travels.

Jim Kingsland said...

Kevin, you will be greatly missed... Your blog was always highly informative and one of the few that actually made me real money! I wish you all the best and enjoy the blessing of being able to travel. Lately I have been understanding all too well the freedom of being able to travel at anytime and the time it takes to blog. I hope you see many awesome sights -- far better than a keyboard. Godspeed, Jim Kingsland

I read your blog daily. This is my first post to you as I had to create an account to do so...agree with others who've said your blog was the most useful. With clarity and generous spirit you put forth quality thought on market conditions and expectations. You will be missed. Enjoy the time away and may you have a fair breeze at your back.

If your time permits maybe you post even only once a month. Your thoughts have been so valuable to me that I will really miss them.

All the best to you.

Kevin said...

Hello everyone,

I've read each and every comment and I must say you're all very kind.

After reading so many of your comments, it seems like most of you would like me to keep this blog going even if it means just updating it once a week.

Maybe I won't delete this blog...maybe I'll update it just on weekends if I'm not busy. I'll see if that's an option for me..

Anyway, thanks again for all the
nice is greatly appreciated.


Bob said...

Kevin, I sincerely do hope you keep doing this in some capacity. I to have never posted, but looked foward to reading your blog everyday for the past 4 months. You are very talented in explaining your reasoning behind the aspects of trading. I also enjoyed reading about your past experiences. I appreciate your honesty and making me a more informed trader. Your the best out there that I have found. Thanks for helping me. Bob

Bravo!!! Thanks for your interest in sharing your skills!

Frankly, I was amazed you kept it going as long as you did. It was A LOT (I mean a LOT) of diligent, insightful work - and it showed. To echo the others - you will be missed - and not easily replaced. Enjoy you free time. You have EARNED it...

Kevin, Welcome BACK :))))

I was checking your site every night to see if you will change your mind. My traders friends were missing you too. I will tell them the great news. Believe me there are tons of people that love your blogs,but are not posting comments.
You made my day!
I must admit that this month or two has been very hard for me, I am loosing money in this bull market. I prefer the short side, also long, but this market seems manipulated, I don't think the bulls will last very long.

Again, Welcome back.
