A very belated thanks to “Calculated Risk” who helped me get this blog going. You can visit “Calculated Risk” here.

Also note that I have added a new site on the right under “links”.
You might wish to bookmark Freebuck.Com for some interesting daily commentary. Please note that I would say this even if I was not a guest writer today.

A few people have reported that some of my charts are a tad “blurry”. To be honest I have noticed the same thing. Rest assured they are very sharp when I create them and have been struggling to find a reason. An anonymous poster informed me that a much sharper chart can be seen by clicking on the image. Try it, it works. Also my friend Professor Piggington has given me a few tips and has suggested that my problem might be that I am creating charts that a are just a tad large and when “blogger” dynamically resizes them resolution is lost. I will be trying out his solution sometime later this week. In the meantime just click on an image for a much sharper chart.

Later this evening check back in as I will be doing a piece on “Free Trade”.
