A Holly Jolly FNL Social

     Our No Cal Social was held Saturday, Dec 4th at the beautiful property of members Alan and Clarice in Elk Grove. Our traders had a very merry time sharing/collaborating and building relationships. The food from Old Spaghetti Factory was excellent, and members brought their favorite deserts. In addition to Alan and Clarice sharing their home with us, a special thanks goes out to Lydean S, our fearless Social Director! Click the button below to read Lydean's most recent blog post being FNL's Social Director has meant to her. Also, a BIG Shout out to Alex M. for bringing a cornucopia of fine wines for a wine tasting! 

     Every member walked away with stronger relationships, memories, and even a small gift :) Stay updated with FNL Trader Talk and don't miss out on the next FNL Social, most likely at a location near you! 

How the ooda loop can help your trading

The Opening Bell session with Jeff B and Rob B has become one of FNL's favorite sessions! One of the biggest areas of improvement for FNL Traders at OB has been developing the OODA Loop skill on various time frames prior to taking a trade. 


For those non military folks, you may be wondering, "what is ooda loop"? Sounds like some ride at Knotts Berry Farm!!

Well, lets take a brief look at OODA loop and how it can be applied to a variety of situations that require critical thinking with changing information.

Bitcoin pullback & Zed Run

    The crypto markets have been extra volatile this holiday season!  Bitcoin, After reaching $68,000 per coin, pulled back to $43,000 and has since stabilized over the $50,000 mark. The market cap of bitcoin is dropped back under $1 trillion and the BTC market dominance is currently around 40% of the crypto market. Altcoins experienced a likeness in retracement for the most part.  FNL Crypto traders were able to whether most of the storm by holding onto solid vetted coins offered by the Coinbase and Kraken U.S. based exchanges.

⚠️ WARNING: Now is a good time for YOU to learn about crypto in the FNL CRYPTO breakout room daily at 11am ET. Crypto Questions?

FNL Zed Run Main Stable is approaching its 400th  Podium finish and 150th Win. Three (3) horses qualified for the last tournament and a chance to compete for the $105,000 prize pool. The mid distance horse rankings for the tourney had FNL’s Z5 Szabo Legendary Mare “Way Ahead” set at #8 out of tens of thousands of horses. Way Ahead was able to place 2nd in her quarterfinal heat winning $175. She placed 5th in her semi-final race at the 1800m and did not advance to the 12 horse final.  Midnight Noir and Tears Of Gold were unable to place in their respective quarterfinals and neither horse advanced.
