Week In Review: The Best Of The StockTwits Blog Network

Let’s be honest, you could pretty much throw a dart any day of the week at the StockTwits Blog Network, and end up hitting a post that is better than 99% of the other stuff out there that passes as financial blogging.  So to say these are “The Best of….” is a little disingenuous; let’s just say these are some of the posts from the last week that caught my attention and I think will interest you.

Pro Tip:  Put on a trade, then leave the office.  Don’t believe me?  Let StockSage1 tell you about it in “The Best Trader I Have Ever Know – Part I” & “Part II.”

Last Saturday some of the smartest minds in venture capital were meeting in Coronado, California.  An hour and a half North I was slicing my finger while trying to open a bag of potato chips with a carving knife.  The Reformed Broker was not there to document my idiocy, but he was there to document the former action.  “Tales from Lindzonpalooza.”

Great insights on angel investing and its role in social start-ups are the topics covered in “Learning Curve of Angel Investing” and “Social Venture Investing” by Points and Figures.

I’ve got one myself, and I recommend it to all traders.  Phil Pearlman walks you through how to make one in “Standing Desk in Effect for the Home Office.”

Raghee Horner talks about perhaps the most important sub-macro issue to be aware of when trading in “Know the Enviroment.”

Just read it!   “Married or not…you should read this” by Joe Fahmy.

Ivanhoff Capital has been hitting it out of the park lately with posts highlighting how crucial the inner game of trading is for success.  “Market Noise or Why Recency Bias Hurt Us” continues the streak.

I really love the two guys and one gal from High Chart Patterns Group.  They have perhaps one of the best trading newsletters out there, largely due to the way they make important trading concepts accessible.  See what I mean in “Clean Flag.”

It’s not “relationships” related to Columbia we should be talking about.  Dragonfly Capital’s hooker-free post “The China US Relationship Has Room To Move Lower.”

Crossing Wall Street’s post reminds me of the famous song by The Byrds,  “Eight Miles High (Fed Monetary Policy Impact Is Minimal).”  But Eddy’s has a better beat and you can dance to it.  “Don’t Invest From 40,000 Feet.”

Each week somebody puts their neck on the chopping block with a post about Apple ($AAPL).  It’s All Star Charts turn this week, and so far, he is right on the money.  “The ‘Instagram Top’ For Apple Stock.”

1nvestor is fast becoming one of my favorite bloggers.  His posts are clean, concise, and informative.  “The Sands of Las Vegas” follows that format and makes a complex trading strategy, an option collar, easy enough for my two-year old or Kim Kardashian to understand.
