Something Interesting

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.

    • 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."
