As you'll see, I used the introductory letter to let you know what you can expect from these email updates. The newsletters will contain my thoughts on the markets and new trading setups and themes, as well as some of the most insightful writing and audio/video content that I gather in the course of my research. 

Much of this content will be unique to the newsletter, and either won't be found on our social media pages, or will appear in the letters first.

With all the recent talk of a new bubble in the making, thanks in part to the Yellen Fed's continued easy money stance, I thought it'd be instructive to revisit our previous stock market bubble - in one quick chart.

So here's what a real stock market bubble looks like.

For those of you who are a little too young to recall it, this is a chart of InfoSpace at the height of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble in 1999-2001. This fallen angel soared to fantastic heights only to plummet back down to earth as the bubble, and InfoSpace's shady business plan, turned to rubble.
