    A million a month??
    It’s really time somebody starts advertising on your site…

  8. Rich Lather commented on Sep 4

    Sorry for the triple post, but there there is a noticeable correlation between visits to your site and market corrections. It would be interesting to see a daily breakdown of site visits vs. VIX.

    Congratulations with August. You have acquired at least one new regular reader since then. Me.

    Congratulations, well deserved.

    Add this to the oxymoron list:

    “risk arbitrage”

    Dr. Brett (traderfeed.blogspot.com) observed the same correlation with his blog. It makes sense we would be hungrier for direction in times of market stress.

    For a financial blog that is a remarkable number of views … particularly for a site that doesn’t dumb down the info.

  14. Winston Munn commented on Sep 4

    Nobody goes to TBP anymore…it’s too crowded.

  15. Eclectic commented on Sep 4

    What do you attribute to having resulted in the Aug 07 spike?

  16. Ssembonge commented on Sep 4

    It could have been higher but I use google reader. I bet a high number of hits are search related. Right Barry?

    Keep them coming.

  17. Strasser commented on Sep 4

    Way to go Barry! Great job.

  18. Alex commented on Sep 5

    Congratulations on the success! I love this blog. I’ve learned so much from you.

  19. Mindfreak commented on Sep 5

    Clearly this indicates that Barry contrived this market correction as a means of increasing his adwords revenue.

  20. rebound commented on Sep 5

    That is great news. You have worked hard to reach the million mark. Your raw and unvarnished writing is going to pay dividends in the long run.

    Maybe you could write a finance or investment column for Rolling Stone. You cover the subject matter in a way that is hip, accessible, and keeps readers coming back for more.

    Best Wishes.

    There’s a simple explanation, everyone.

    It’s called “The flight to quality.”

  22. Bill commented on Sep 5

    congrats and i hope you will continue the quality work….really well deserved. BTW your blog is not ultra bearish (doom and gloom kind)

    so far i have not been able to find a financial blog which supports bullish sentiments.

  25. TRW commented on Sep 5

    Looks like you’ve got a nice “in-house” market sentiment indicator…
    I bet traffic peaked @ 8/16-17. Just a guess.
    Thanks for your work!

  26. BSG123 commented on Sep 5

    Well deserved. Someone outside of the fray of Wall Street’s blabbering boobs.

  34. Trader Mike commented on Sep 13

  35. Jerry Jones commented on Sep 23

    Thats not to impresive you know. your avg page view per visit is 1.2 thats awful. Based on the amount of visits you should be clearing at least 10mil. You really should think about some drastic measure, to be online for so long and generate 1mil pageviews, and to even put it up on ur HP is ridiculous, u have never doen internet before have you ?
