WHY to Avoid “Doom Porn” (PODCAST)

What is “doom porn”?

Articles or videos online (prevalently in the blogosphere) that mainly discusses and even fantasizes about the collapse of either the financial world or society as a whole through some sort of economic event.    Individuals seem to develop some sort of addictive fascination with this unreality, and thus the term “doom porn”.

And it is no great secret that we at Sharpe Trade, LLC are not fans of this “doom porn”.  When I published content on my own, I had a video entry on the topic I referred to as “Doomers, Preppers and Lepers” on the topic.  In fact, we have entire entry in our “How to Begin” series on avoiding “Doom Porn” at all costs.

But why?

What very real dangers come from constantly exposing yourself to such articles and websites?  How can this harm you with your investing and trading efforts?  We discuss this in the following podcast …

    I was sucked into doom porn for about 9 years. You were one of the biggest reasons I was able to escape from that toxic mindset. No kidding, and I am not just trying to toot your horn. I really appreciate what you do.
