SPECIAL VIDEO! Jeffrey Lin goes to NYC for Largest Tweetup Ever! CNBC Fast Money & OptionMonster Tweetup Special

If you haven’t seen this already! YES it’s all over the web! (I would like to think hehe). It’s the special compilation video I made of my trip to the CNBC Fast Money & OptionMonster Largest Tweetup ever. I blogged about it when I got back but didn’t get to cut a video till a few weeks ago… Sorry forgot to post it here, but it was on http://FINZ.tv right away!

Anyway enjoy! And would looove to have a tweetup elsewhere so just hit me up on twitter!

Me on CNBC Fast Money Optionmonster Largest Tweetup Ever Live NYC

Yes, at the last second, I took down a plane ticket and flew out to NYC on Jetblue’s redeye flight on Thursday night, landing in NYC Friday morning 4:45am for the CNBC Fast Money Optionmonster Largest Tweetup EVER! Why is it the largest tweetup ever you ask? Since we only had about 10 people? Because it’s the first Tweetup synchronized with a global cable show (CNBC’s Fast Money) at 5:00pm Eastern on 3/6/09.

Met a ton of my “twitter” trader friends at tweetup, including @TraderAlamo (Vincent Bagnato- My partner for FINZ.tv), @CoffeyGrinds (Andrew Coffey), @OptionMonster (Jon Najarian) @BullishBeauty (Carolyn Lloyd-Ferguson), @Barrieabalard, @ShaneDrozdowski, @Ferrari321 (Kevin Cheng), @theTrading (Dave Johnson), and @Millionare007 (John), @Alf2126 (Amanda) whose step-dad @jaycoje (Jason) called from Vegas for her to come down to Time Square and get him a Po-Baby (mortgage crash formula) Tshirt.

Street team covering the NYC Tea Party. couldn’t wait for Rick Santelli

Cut our first street interviews video for FINZ.tv this week!  Trying to branch out with various types of trading, markets, and economic related videos so here’s our first attempt at getting out there and taking the pulse of the public for some opinions away from the trading desk. Because as we all should know, opinions and emotions should be kept out of trading since the market is always right.  But alas, we are still people, with thoughts, and citizens of this great country and should/do care about the way our country is run.  I mean, we ARE a democracy, aren’t we? (though that definition seems to be fading by the day). So check out the video… Street Team: Coverage-Chicago Tea Party with Rick Santelli? How about a NYC Tea Party.

P.s. thanks to NYC Tea Party Kellen Guida (@parcbench on twitter) as well as interviews with rally attendees Elizabeth Yannone and Steven E. Eiselen.

Oh, and, spur of the moment, I decided to head out to NYC tonight! Taking the redeye out of Long Beach airport, getting to NYC friday morning so I could be at the CNBC Fast Money/Optionmonster Tweetup for the Friday broadcast of Fast Money at the NASDAQ market site in Times Square.  Please email me or message me on twitter if you’re free and in the NYC area!  I’ll be in NYC Friday till Sunday and would love to get together.

And if you have any questions for the Fast Money traders, or any ideas for videos we could do for FINZ, let me know too! Even if you can’t be there, we’ll try to get stuff across for ya!

Whew! Made it to 3rd week of FINZ.tv videos-Interviewing David Aferiat of Trade-Ideas.com at Macellera in Manhattan

After two crazy weeks, both in the markets and with me and Alamo trying to start up FINZ.tv, we’ve successfully kicked off the 3rd week of FINZ.tv! With ridiculous technology problems the first week when Vincent (@traderAlamo on twitter) tried to launch the show on his trip to Paris

then the cocky idea we could do 3 shows all last Sunday,

ETF in 60 UPDATE: Rewind the tape on SRS (ProShares Ultrashort Real Estate ETF) Trade

Multiplicity Ep.1: Whiffing Potash (POT) fertilizer for 10-mins, 30-mins, a whole day?

Trendlines Ep.1: Can China FXI (iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index) Hold the Line against Evil Nemesis FXP

we thought we’d slow it down and focus on making a clean, high quality video for the 3rd week.

Having done technical analysis shows for the first two weeks, we’re starting to branch out to different type of shows as was our original plan for a “network” for FINZ.tv. So here it is! The first interview held for FINZ.tv, with our guest David Aferiat (@tradeideas on twitter) of Trade-Ideas.com. Actually shot this last Sunday, February 22nd 2009, yes-the same Sunday we tried to put out 3 shows which we did, only 6 hours too late when all the traders on the East Coast were sleeping already. (for interview transcript and pictures, visit the episode page)

Please stop by FINZ.tv this week.  We filmed our first “special” this weekend out in the streets of New York and should have that video out Monday or Tuesday.  As always, we’ll continue putting out trading opportunity webisodes.  Did y’all see how dead on we were with our first few videos?  Not to mention our FINZ.tv POSSE Traders Journal doesn’t seem to have a miss trade yet!  Almost sounds cocky huh?  It’s not that. It’s more like…I’m amazed how professional and detailed our traders/bloggers are so even in this nuttiest of markets we still got a good handle on how to trade it.

Most importantly, we’ll be at the OptionMonster/Fast Money tweetup and event for Jon Najarian, Pete Najarian, and Guy Adami’s “Invest Like a Monster” seminar.  The tweetup is this Friday outside the NASDAQ market site in Times Square during the Fast Money broadcast at 5pm, so come out and join us if you can!  Contact Andrew Coffey (@coffeygrinds on Twitter) for tweetup info.  The seminar is Saturday.

Chesapeake Launches Shale.tv for Programming on the Barnett Shale and Other Shales

Thanks to today’s CNBC Fast Money show for pointing this out (at least to me). As if shows like Extreme Engineering’s Sahkalin Oil & Gas Complex on the Discovery Channel or the site GoHaynesvilleShale wasn’t enough, we get to go deep into the shale action along with Aubrey McClendon! Is it really possible for me to become a oil wildcatter roughneck just sitting at home watching Shale.tv? I hope so! Here’s Shale.tv’s self-introduction:

Shale.tv is a unique, online video channel designed to provide a platform for in-depth information, discussion and analyses about the Barnett Shale and other shale natural gas plays in the US. Through a combination of live talk/interview shows and interactive and archived content, we hope to provide thorough, accurate and independent information about the complex issues and opportunities of developing natural gas domestically. We seek participation from all the stakeholders in these shale plays.

For now, I’m still using the following SuckingLess.com research sites for my natural gas holdings:

**Disclosure: I own shares of CHK as of this post**

This is the training I need to get ready for the markets everyday


T. Boone Pickens’ Interview on CNBC

Maybe not much for the short term trader here (except Pickens’ call to short oil and natural gas here as he expects a pullback in both during the 2nd quarter.) However, I found his comments on the longterm outlook of energy, energy sources, and viable vs. fairy-tale alternative energy to be extremely useful for investing long term as energy will only become more scarce.
