Hey guys,

Trading Post is a new video series I’ve been working on for our Pro Traders. The premise here is to give you guys some fresh video content, with a focus on giving you a window into the stuff I’ve been picking up for short, mid and long term specs. Think of this as a portfolio review series, where you gain access to some of my spec details and set yourself up to take action depending on whether you agree or not. This is another take on the “What We’re Buying” concept that we were running for a while and I’m posting some early work to gather feedback and help tune the final product to your needs.

To kick things off, here is a brief clip covering some of the artifacts and colorless cards I was picking up in the first half of 2016. This content was recorded a few weeks back, so some of the cards have already experienced meta-game shifts and/or spikes or declines, but upcoming segments will be freshly recorded to be a little more timely. If you guys like what you see, or have suggestions for improvements (I realize the video quality is only mediocre and will work on both lens and lighting), fill out the comments to help guide my hand moving forward.

Looking forward to producing some sweet vids for you all moving forward!

  1. James I love the work you contribute, especially during big events.
    Maybe some sort of script or some notes jotted down would help, your narration during the video could use a little a work. Maybe zoom in on each card or hold it up to the lens so people can read it? Not sure you need 10 piles of cards on camera at one time. This seems like a longer version of what you do with Travis on your podcast, not 100% sure you even need the video but I understand why you are doing it. I guess if you can answer “this is the benefit my viewers are getting vs. just listening to the podcast” then you will have a successful video series. I mostly just listened to this video anyways so that’s my perspective and some tips. Hope the series works out well for you and hope I helped you some. Take care
