≈ What is real? ≈

– “This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

—The Matrix (1999)—

Unskilled and unaware. That’s a place where nobody wants to be. Like the Thanksgiving turkey, markets are being fed with liquidity day in day out. Money, money, money. Your trust, confidence, and affection for the system grow, like the turkey’s for his owner.

Suddenly: BAM!!, the axe goes down and the turkey is you. Next thing you’ll hear is some bureaucrat showing a yellow smile on a press conference feeling deeply sorry for what happened (killing you).

How to be skilled and aware? How not to be the turkey on a turkey market? How not to be the battery that powers the Matrix? At this point, you might be thinking.

First of all, you’ve got to take the Red Pill. Once you take it, there is no turning back. The desert of the real will reveal itself to you. You will then look yourself in the mirror and realize YOU are the turkey and that guy staring at you is The Man who’s feeding you not from love but because YOU are his dinner.

The next step is to take action. But first, you’ve got to have a plan.

We are preparing the Red Pill for you together with a plan here at Tackle Trading. You stay in Wonderland and we’ll show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. Stay tuned.

Chart of the Day

1000 and 1 days in the life of a Thanksgiving turkey

Consider a turkey that is fed every day. Every single feeding will firm up the bird’s belief that it is the general rule of life to be fed every day by friendly members of the human race ‘looking out for its best interests,’ as a politician would say. On the afternoon of the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, something unexpected will happen to the turkey. It will incur a revision of belief.” – Nassim Taleb, Black Swan (2007).
