They said they would act so they will have to do something but what and when. Most of China's debt is in USD so it's getting more expensive and also a history of capital flight when the Yuan weakens to these levels.

If your thesis is that China will intervene you'd sell into the move.  On the other hand, commentary is that 7 was never guaranteed to be a magic number.

Fascinating lecture on Poker Economics, one of the  MIT's OpenCourseWare series .

Delves into early Credit Creation and money and debt by linking poker in the early 1800's in the US mid west to soft banks and onto the formation of the CME futures market in the same region. Then comes back to poker and it's links to quant analysis in the 1980's, beating casinos and the emergence of hedge funds.

Just over a hour long.

Video on how the scammers on instagram, myfacebook etc turn up with fantastic looking 'live' account records with reputable brokers by using white labeled fake mt4 servers. Scamming is clearing becoming a massive industry in the world of retail trading (as if it wasn't big already).

Very strong language

Oh a something interesting thread. 

I love playing Texas Hold Em Up Poker. Do you play Poker @Caseynotes?

I prefer the Texas Hold Em up version to say three card or other varieties. What do you think?

It is great to use Poker when looking at odds and probabilities. What do you think?

I used to watch the professionals play Poker on TV. Someone whom I have known since I was a child actually won Poker Million and I watched him play live on Sky Sports. 

There are quite a few traders who use poker analogies or refer to poker. You may have come across them. 

I think the Scandinavian professional poker players (if you ever watch them) play quite an aggressive style especially on flush draws. Have you noticed? If you try and relate this to trading then you may get some traders who trade aggressively for a short period when the price crosses the 20 DMA but then revert to a less aggressive stance as the price moves towards say a 200 DMA on any breakout after a long correction or fall. 

can't imagine why you would tag me for this and it's not really interesting.

@Caseynotes,

You don't find Poker a fascinating game? I find it interesting and fascinating. I love the game. Well I find it interesting. I may even set up a thread in relation to Poker and Trading. 

I think you posted the above this month. 

yes and it's an excellent video that you didn't watch before making comment, shame.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
