Buy the Bulls @BuyTheBulls

If you’re the buy and hold type this low maintenance enhancement will make your life a hell of a lot more comfortable. Especially if you need funds in the middle off a GFC meltdown.

"In summary, a low frequency strategy with minimal workload that provides a slightly better return than buy and hold, yet without the significant downside that a buy and hold investor needs to contend with."

Great News, the average age when people see the light and crossover from supporting socialism to supporting conservatism has dropped by 8 years, now the average age is 39, down from 47. (You Gov).

That's the amount of real life experience needed to see that socialism is not about a fairer society at all but is really about taking complete and total control while conservatism is not about selfishness but is really about protecting personal freedoms.

Australian firefighters slam climate alarmists and 'green tape' for preventing back-burning which would have prevented the now huge bushfires. I'll believe Australian firefighters over a Swedish NWO puppet-child any day of the week.

This has just turned up an looks to be an extract from a new biography of Nav Sarao. Those about around 2015 will remember he was the Brit who was extradited to the US on market spoofing charges and said to have caused a major global flash crash. He served time and payed a massive fine but also while inside was swindled out of his complete trading earnings of $50 million (if memory serves).

The extract covers his early days day trading the US markets at Futex (UK company).

(google 'nav sarao' for more).

DAX seems to be between a rock and a hard place?

I wonder where the max pain is?

"Max pain, or the max pain price, is the strike price with the most open contract puts and calls - and the price at which the stock would cause financial losses for the largest number of option holders at expiration."

the key is the interconnectedness of these large international companies and their dependence on a booming US economy, currently Dax and Ftse are marking time waiting for that next US boom, note marking time and not collapsing because markets are expecting US growth in the future. If the US economy picks up substantially then so will demand for Audis, Mercs and BMWs, same for Ftse company products. Markets have been waiting for some kind of resolution to the US/China trade dispute and true the picture is still not clear but is clear enough to encourage the US markets, if that continues the others must follow.

    • True. Going for the big swings works and so does scalping for everyday gains. Big swings often take time and sometimes one has to be patient and wait and pay the vig for the wait. Taking profit where one finds it is no bad thing and to be encouraged and applauded surely? Especially if one is lucky enough to short, trade out and then reverse one's position and profit by each swing.¬†I¬†agree if one takes a position and is going long and has a clear target in mind there is little¬†point trading in and out, but when there is obvious profit what's wrong with taking it? Traders seem to have different approaches to gain. If one were running a bot one could easily programme it to do exactly that. ¬†
    • @HPbrand, Long term the charts are supporting your view of bearish /negative when you look at the 'Monthly' and 'Weekly' charts for Bitcoin. Of course this can change but right now they support your view. However, that does not mean shorter term Bitcoin could not rally like it is right now since hitting $3.8k a few weeks back.¬† Majority of the tokens are utter garbage. In fact 90% of them are worthless and will fail. That I have little doubt about. There are however a few tokens which offer very compelling reasoning in terms of their creation and the impact they could have on particular areas. I will not go into that here but I have a thread on 'Tokenisation' which will explain some of these so little point in repeating in this thread.¬† From a trading perspective your third paragraph does not make sense. If you trade based on technical indicators and signals and they point towards Bitcoin going down to zero then for heavens sake short this asset and make money. Surely trading is all about making money. If you can maximise how much you can make per point movement and use effective leverage if you want to then to me it does not matter if Bitcoin is going to zero. If you are that sure then short it. Why wouldn't you?¬† If Governments were going to close Bitcoin et al then they would have done so. In fact the evidence demonstrates¬†that Governments worldwide are embracing it and will adopt it in some form with legislation and tax rules being brought in to deal with Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.¬† By all means wait and patiently be shown otherwise but just read about how India overturned their Bitcoin ban recently. Read about the US and UK bringing in guidance in relation to Crypto Assets. Just have a look at Gibraltar and the infrastructure there. I haven't even mentioned Asia and how China / Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea are all embracing Cryptocurrencies. I am not saying it will be Bitcoin that makes it. The simple truth is I don't know but the future is digital and digital currencies are coming. Central Governments are working on this as we speak and as I write. If what I am hearing is correct,¬†it is a race to see which country releases their digital currency backed by Central Government first. Now although this is different to 'Decentralised¬†Cryptocurrencies' it will shape the future of money / transactions / cross border payments / movement of assets, etc.¬†
    • Hi all. I have an amount in my unsettled debit, on the overview tab. What is this and how is it calculated?¬† Thanks.¬†
