As a ribbon to tie up the whole package of posts that describe for a reader the reason why they should read this blog, I present this post.
It is a part of a series, ex post facto the other posts. These will be updated to include this one and put up on the left sidebar under the series heading. Call this the first one, which is actually the last one, and it will go in reverse chronological order. The last post is here.
Since the theme for the day is what the blog is about, of course, it is about making money.
There may be a money making opportunity right now in the markets. Playing the markets may be the best way for a schnook like me to make money. At this point in my life, it is too late to become a rocket scientist or a nuclear engineer. Or to become---whatever. Like what Flip Wilson used to say, what you see is what you get, honey! That means to write about it in a blog. The blog is IT.
I could be wrong about the markets, and often am, but this market may be about to take a fall. A big one.
This is not investment advice by any stretch of the imagination, but it could be an investment idea. The trouble is, if you haven't done this already, you may be too late. However, there still could be some time.
The idea is to go short. I won't be a stock picker here, though. Do your own due diligence. What you could do is to do a short etf. If you don't know about that, look it up. I won't be giving tutorials here.
Naturally, you may want to be long on precious metals. But if you were reading this blog all along, you should have figured that out already.
