Liberty. Finance. Bullshit.
“Fringe Finance” is a collection of my thoughts and investment decisions, mixed with content that I personally curate from sources who write both exclusively, and non-exclusively, for the blog. My personally written content is rarely found anywhere else and the curated content I provide is from people and organizations I read frequently and respect as truth tellers, and sometimes just as irreverent iconoclasts.
Both myself and the people I read are not afraid to challenge the mainstream narrative or succumb to it when it serves the collective best interests of identifying objective truths on complex, important or fringe topics - the areas where the mainstream media and mainstream finance won’t shine lights. It was this type of courage to go against the mainstream that led to many of us getting ahead of the pack in late 2019/early 2020 before Covid become a nation-wide hysteria and crashed markets.
I have spent years reading news that, in my opinion, often missed the point and buried the lede. Up until a couple years ago, I just thought it was because the mainstream media needed to be careful. Now, it has become clear that it is likely due to the mainstream media and financial media’s purpose to drive a narrative which serves the interests of a small minority, rather than the common citizen.
While inevitably, sometimes what I post may not be correct or turn out to 100% be the objective truth, I find that discourse is the most important part. In other words, at least the items will be up for discussion. And most importantly, I trust my readers to take the facts on their own and draw their own conclusions.
Nothing on this blog is investment advice, life advice, political advice or otherwise. Do your research elsewhere and consult your personal financial advisor and/or therapist with any issues. Please leave me alone.
Oh, and welcome to the fringe.

Due to the time sensitive nature of the content regarding thoughts about the world of finance, there are no refunds. Read it again above, in large print.
I will fight contested credit card charges after you have access to all of my content with the fierce vigor of a displaced Amazonian tribesman defending the sole tranche of remaining land still native to his ancestry from British settlers.
I often own positions in names I discuss and write about on my blog/Twitter/social media. None of this is ever a solicitation to buy or sell securities. It is only a look into my personal opinions and portfolio. These positions can change immediately as soon as I publish this, with or without notice. You are on your own. Do not make decisions based on my blog. I exist on the fringe.
These are not the opinions of any of my employers, partners, or associates.
I get shit wrong a lot. If I am ever here listing things I got right or things I think will happen in the future, note that there are likely twice as many things I got wrong over the same period of time.
I’m not a financial advisor, I hold no licenses or registrations and am not qualified to give advice on anything, let alone finance, medicine or politics. Talk to your doctor, talk to your financial advisor or your therapist. Leave me alone and do your research elsewhere.
Additionally, I often lose money on positions I trade/invest in. I may add any name mentioned in this blog/Twitter/social media and sell any name mentioned at any time, without further warning. Positions can change immediately as soon as I publish, with or without notice.

I did my best to be honest about my disclosures but can’t guarantee I am right; I write these posts after a couple beers sometimes. Also, I just straight up get shit wrong a lot. I mention it multiple times because it’s that important.
