I just want to point out a few changes I have made to the Discord server.
Prior to today, I have offered my work in several categories: the newsletter I write regularly on the markets (where I focus especially on the S&P 500), the Discord server in which I discuss things during the session, and I’ve also maintained counts on U.S. Indices and many other stocks and ETFs, some crypto assets, the dollar, some bond-related assets and some commodities. All of these extra counts were maintained on separate pages here on my website for higher “Tiers” on Patreon.
However those two highest tiers also had the fewest members and that work required the most time. What I have decided to do is to consolidate my work into just two categories: the newsletter and the Discord. And so, I have moved all the counts that I previously maintained on this website to the Discord server itself, and have created channels for each stock or other asset.
So, this will simplify things and make updating and sharing those counts a little easier going forward, while also making that work available to more people.
Going forward, members of the Discord can now access these additional private channels:
In each channel is a “pinned post” that is the long-term daily chart for those assets, based on my current thinking about the markets. And subsequent posts in those channels will be shorter-term counts attempting to refine where I think we are at within the bigger picture.
As additional posts are made, the pinned post in each channel will not be as accessible in the feed as it is now (it will get buried). To find the long-term chart in each channel, you will need to look for this pin icon to see the pinned posts. Here is Apple’s channel, for example:
Clicking on that will give you a list of any pinned posts and you may review the long-term picture.
I will still of course incorporate some of these counts from time to time in my newsletter articles as I always have, when, for instance, I write a longer weekend article where I assess multiple things together.
I have also added a completely public discussion channel to the Discord where anyone at all can join and discuss things if they would like to. So, I welcome you to stop in, whether you’re a non-member or even a newsletter member as well.
There shouldn’t be anything anyone has to do as a result of these changes I’ve made. If you were a member of either of two higher tiers, you are welcome to downgrade to just the Discord tier on Patreon.
I hope you enjoy these changes and the additional analyses. I think the format of using Discord for these kinds of count updates works well, as you can scroll through a history of work and see changes made as we go along, something I can’t easily do on the website without creating new articles for each and every new update, which would be a complete pain to try to sift through. So, I think I like how this will work out going forward.
Needless to say, I cannot update each and every one of these counts every day (I think right now there are 34 instruments covered), but I will update them as I see things I think I can work with as we go.
Let me know if you have any questions and, as always, I hope everyone has a fine evening.
