I’m streamlining my twitter feed a bit to cut down on noise and to make it easier to keep track of key information links to refer to later. In Quick Takes I post links I find of interest & relevant on any given day. These links will cover a broad spectrum of items, from the market impacting/relevant to economic & political news, social and the occasional potpourri/humorous and I may add a quick thought/impression.
If you, as I am, sift through tons of news throughout the day to stay informed then you may come to find these Quick Takes as a useful resource.

QT: The calm remains despite yesterday’s dip. I have a chart for everyone that may signal things are changing in the not too distant future. I’ll post later this week.

How will we solve any of these math problems? Perhaps humans can’t figure them out, but good news, there may be a smarter alternative just around the corner:
