Hi, hi, hiatus
Hi there! It's already Sunday, so it's time for… an announcement!
TL;DR: This is going to be the last newsletter for a while. You don't need to do anything, I'll probably be back but I don't know when, and I will neither sell your email address nor send you spam in the meantime.
I've been writing fx:macro for about 20 months now, and it has grown into something I'm proud of. As I've often said: it helped me in a lot of ways to become more structured and more concise, I've met great people along the way, and I've learned so much. But it is time for a change. As is often the case in life, there are bigger and smaller reasons that lead to the same outcome:
I've spent the last month abroad with amazing people and a completely different focus away from markets. I did something similar for two months earlier this year and will do a lot more of it next year. While I enjoy the different mindset and while it's exactly what I need mentally, it doesn't work well with what and how I've been trading. So, I will need to make a change there and focus on finding a style that goes well with that: higher timeframes, less maintenance, not as close to the market as I used to be.
Other things have also come up: I have an offer for a second job that I might accept, and a few different personal projects that all need attention.
Plus, the interaction on Twitter, which was a big driver for the newsletter and a benefit for me, has become considerably worse over the last year: my feed has deteriorated in quality and I barely see interesting conversations happening anymore. It feels just noisy and it doesn't really work for me anymore.
So, what's next? As I wrote above, I'll probably be back sometime but I don't know when or how. If you want to stay on the list, you might be the first to hear. If not, then that's fine too.
Finally, thanks to everyone for your support, I really appreciate it!
See you around…
PS. Here's the FOMC prep for next week because the Fed is still a thing:
