Shortwire started as a hobby, as I was trying to put together my thoughts one night. I’m a financial professional with a considerable amount of experience—yet I had trouble verbalizing a concise approach to organize one’s financial plan-of-attack. In other words, I felt like I was a poser.
I don’t know if it’s cheesy to have a mission but I think it keeps me on topic. Shortwire’s mission is to provide discussion [not advice] on financial subjects. These range from forex markets to ETF products and cover everything in between.
It’s my belief that having a “mission” helps keep me on topic. After all, if you wanted to read about what someone had for breakfast I’m sure there’s a foodie blog out there that’d be way better than anything I could offer. I’ve eaten 2 boiled eggs for breakfast for the last 20 years.
I won’t lie: this website will continue whether you offer input or not. I won’t pretend that its every reader’s duty to contact me and let me know their thoughts. Unless I hear otherwise I assume nobody is going to find any revelations here worth taking the time to use the contact form.
If, for some bubble-busting reason you need to let me know what you think about
