The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Hello Traders,

Welcome to the new temporary home of Knight Capital Management. While we are in transition, we appreciate your patience.

Today, unexpectedly I had to make the decision to let go of a couple of people. I am uncertain at present when this situation will be resolved, but it goes without saying that it is a decision that I didn't take lightly.

Sometimes, the negative that surrounds you has to be released, and the negative people that are around you. It is unfortunate that it had to come to this, but it had to be done.

When a person(s) do not understand your dream, desire, and vision, and you have tried over and over to get it through to them without any real success, then I suppose it is time to cut the cord.

So the good is that I am back working for myself, the bad is I do not have a website home right now to call home, and the ugly I got rid of today to replace it with a positive flowing environment that will produce positive results.

Positive energy begets positive thoughts, and positive emotions and allows for the creative energy to be released. I will continue to search for those positive people to surround myself with this time that support the dream and vision that I am trying to accomplish.

I will not make the mistake again of trying to change a person(s) point of view. It is pointless, and fruitless to do so. If you bang your head against a brick wall over and over again expecting a different result, that my friend, is the definition of insanity.

Although, today I don't have any solutions to offer you. I am happy today to have my life back without the turmoil that has surrounded me and my life recently. I am done being frustrated, and pissed off, as best as I can.

I am tired of waking up and being mad at the world. It is not the world's fault that I am in the position that I am in. I placed myself into this position now it is time to dig myself out.

Step by step, I am certain this can be accomplished with the grace of God by my side. I know everything good comes from our creator God. I also know that HE works in ways that we do not understand.

God said, that HE will never leave you, nor forsake you. It is us that leave HIM, and forsake HIM. The Lord is the supplier of all good things. It is to HIM that we should give the honor, glory, and praise.

I believe in what I am trying to accomplish, and I will find a solution to this setback through the grace of God in Heaven.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

God Bless You and Keep You,

David "Tiger" Knight

Morning Walk at Twin Lakes Park in Greensburg, PA

Hello Traders,

I was out walking this morning ... and this view is what presented itself at Twin Lakes Park as the sun was coming out from the east.

The first thought that came to my mind was how beautiful. This world that we are visitors in for a short period of time. The Lord in Heaven has made everything that I look upon. We have these kind of views that if we simply stop and take the time to appreciate ...

To be completely honest with you, I am at the proverbial crossroads of life. Which way should I proceed? My business as an entity is not where I would like it to be. Although, I have a lot of great trading ideas to share with others.

Just like this view ... you have to be there to see it right?

We get up each morning and go about our day ... many of us stay busy from sunrise to sunset without ever taking the time to simply say a prayer of thanks.

Dear God ... I thank you for your wonderful blessing that has been bestowed in my life. The good, the bad, and the ugly. You are creator of all that I see ... we can see the beauty that is present in this world or we can simply walk by it and never see it.

In the end, it's our choice ... that is what makes us Human Beings. Our free choice ... we that still live in the USA have a decision to make in November ... to take back our country from the Socialists.

We all have a decision to make ... to not make a decision is the same as making one. It has been said that you have 3 decisions in trading ... to go long, short, or no position. We do have a choice to make in November.

I believe the world will still be here offering these kind of views the day after the elections.

My business will be what it will be ... giving it all to God seems like the right thing to do. After all, there is only so LITTLE that I can control. I can not control the sunrise or sunset, but I can participate in them, and be an active participant in what the view that I choose to see.

I choose to see the good in people ... I choose to see the good in this world ... regardless of how many lemons come my way ... I will always choose to make lemonade with them.

Good Trading,

David "Tiger" Knight
