Texas Style Trend Following with Salem Abraham

In today’s episode we learn more about tiny Canadian, Texas; how you have to noodles and red sauce if in a contest to make the best spaghetti, the turtle traders, the tourist boat capsizing in front of the nude beach, talking how low oil can go, being buddies with Boone Pickens, honeybees, sending the first ever computer-generated orders electronically to the CME, trend following (of course), apple salads not equaling fruit salads, bonds at zero, and pecan & apple orchards.
