Just Three Tweets

Recommended Posts

There is an interesting new https://twitter.com/warrenbuffet99 twitter account (one of many using that name)  though this one has only 53 tweets, the first from just 3 days ago yet has 185k followers (and increasing by about 1k every 15 minutes). It's worth a look because it's packed full of sage advice both trading and general.

3 tweets this morning link a theme concerning one of the most important abilities a trader can have. The ability to be good at both taking risk and being defensive and to be able to switch rapidly between the two. Most people are either good at one or the other, or just average at both, that's because the two are poles apart and most people will naturally lean one way or the other or are in the middle. So how to improve our natural deficiencies.

This is not psychology, it's personality, so the way forward is not gurus, it's Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - which is a lot easier and cheaper;

- define the problem, make a list of actions to take for a successful outcome to apply every time the problem is encounted, over time the actions of the list will become the natural response replacing the prior faulty response. 

Those three tweets;

It is a bit odd, with so many Buffet accounts already no one would automatically assume this one was genuine Buffet - would they?

Exactly! I assume people would want some sort of proof ... right?

right... ? O.o


Non the less - these are some useful pointers to the starters out there. Just be mindful of any links / promotions / phishing / pushing of trade strategy / affiliate links in the future.

The warrenbuffet99 account was suspended a few hours ago, clearly twitter thought the material was too hot lol.

Was suspended for not making clear it was a fake or parody account.

Twitter and the others FB/Goog/ are losing the plot and hopefully shaken up by Trumps warning shot tweets yesterday.

The account had well over 250k followers last night and now has a strong # following.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
