Site Review: Karl Denninger, The Market Ticker
Karl Denninger and his site, “The Market Ticker” is quite popular amongst the investment community. With over 75K monthly unique visitors (source: Compete.com), Karl Denninger certainly gets his voice heard to the mass.
So who exactly is Karl Denninger? Well his credentials are pretty extensive:
Author of “The Market Ticker”
Former CEO of MCSNet
Operator of TickerForum.com
Full Time Trader since 1998
Seeking Alpha Certified
Recipient of 2008 Reed Irvine Accuracy In Media Award
Now, I’m not recommending his site because of his credentials, but rather because of the work he produces on The Market Ticker. His articles are some of the most data packed contents on the web. You can go to the major financial media like CNBC.com and read an article. Then you can visit Karl’s site and read exactly why CNBC’s article is flawed in many ways. What’s important here is that he backs up his statements with well researched facts, not anecdotal theories, and that’s what I enjoy the most. His writing and self-presentation skills aren’t ordinary.
On the flip side, I must warn you with one notion. Karl is a bit conspicuous when it comes to the current state of the US. He is a bit angry at how things are handled during this financial crisis, and it clearly shows in his works. People often refer to Nouriel Roubini as Dr. Doom, who successfully ‘predicted’ this crisis. Well, Karl is no exception. When it comes to envisinoning something ugly for America in the near future, look no further, Karl is your guy. If you’re one of the many who are looking to confirm your theory that the market is recovering from last year’s damage, be prepared to be shut down by The Market Ticker. On the other hand, if you reside on the other side, convinced that America is headed for some world of hurt, The Market Ticker is your best friend.
