Michael Covel plays a musical clip to illustrate where we are today - something you might not expect, but particularly relevant to our current climate. Covel also talks about an article called "Spotting Bulls*** in Financial News in a Few Easy Steps". He profiles one young writer in particular, and how anybody right out of college with a journalism degree can reach millions of people in the financial markets, yet still not have any idea what they're talking about. Not to pick on this young writer, Covel discusses how dangerous articles like this can be for an inexperienced trader. Staying in the world of media, he discusses two videos on CNBC in the last week. One interview with Jason Gerlach of Sunrise Capital had CNBC, in typical style, asking for specific picks; Gerlach explained that this is not in line with a trend following approach, to complete confusion from CNBC on air types. Another CNBC piece with Jeff Applegate from Morgan Stanley had him explaining managed futures as a relative safe haven. Of course, CNBC's reply left Covel shaking his head. Covel also discusses the Facebook IPO craze, puts it in context of the last tech bubble, and takes a look at how you can't trade it from a trend following perspective - yet. He also previews an upcoming podcast with a member of the MIT Blackjack Card Counting team, as discussed in the book Bringing Down The House. As shown in the chapter on Ed Thorpe in Jack Schwager's new book, blackjack has particular relevance to the trading world. In fact, two of the original turtles were on competing blackjack teams. Covel waxes that wisdom can be gained from people from other walks of life, especially those closely related to the trading world.
