Changing to Fee-Based Substack
Starting March 1, 2022
After considerable thought, I have decided to transition The Occasional Speculator to a fee-based newsletter beginning March 1, 2022. Before I go into the details, I would like to:
Thank everyone for reading throughout the years. There’s a ton of content out there, and I’m grateful to each and every one of you for choosing to subscribe to my Substack account and read my articles. I understand not everyone will continue to follow me and I hope that I have provided enough value to my audience that you will at least consider supporting me.
Assure you that I will not be flooding your inbox with promotional subscribe-to-my-letter type emails. This post explaining my move will be all the only notification will receive. I made a promise when you signed up that you would never be bombarded with spam, and I intend to keep that promise. You will receive great content, or nothing.
Subscribers will continue to receive the same thorough, honest, speculator’s perspective on what I'm buying, what I own and what I'm monitoring. My financial advice is timely and actionable and will hopefully make you money, as it has done for me.
While I in several months added a net of over $500K to the commodity account, the bulk of the growth in the account came from a successful speculation - detailed in a number of my past articles - that interest rates were due for an increase.
Going forward, you will likely find my content more:
1. Personal: While I’ve gotten political at times, I cannot ignore how much politics affect the financial market and I will expand on that going forward.
2. Frequent: I’ve been posting 2-3 times per month but intent to increase my activity to at least one article every week
3. Engaging: I want to hear from you! I will be asking my readers to comment on my articles so that I can understand your views, answer your questions and hopefully build more of a community
DETAILS ABOUT SUBSCRIPTION
Starting March 1, 2022, all new subscribers will pay $5 per month or $40 per year (prices in US dollars).
Payments will be processed through Stripe, a trusted credit card processing partner to Substack that is dedicated to keeping your information secure.
THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL MY WONDERFUL READERS
I hope you continue to follow along with me as stay current about what’s happening in the political & financial world, then speculate how you can be a trader or investor who comes out on top.
