Who else has been destroyed?  Any new traders?  Do you now see the impossibility of doing this for a 'living'?

Its been unfathomable ****.....to say the least....Genuine value utterly destroyed, all sense of value gone.......  Oil down 23% in one day !!!!!!    Cable down to a 35 year low.....I remember $1.14 when I was in the dealing room !!!! (in 1986).....I thought I was safe trading €£ but that shifted 3 % in a day  .  Everythiing was sold as traders had to liquidate to cover margin calls...Copper etc particularly but treasuries too.....78% for volatitity !!  

The difference between now and 1987 was that 1987 it was real traders....Yes with fear in the eyes but there was nt programme trading......There were queues for the FAX machine to put orders in to sell ( or buy)....

If there's one thing the rich and powerful genuinely love it's their money.  Do you really think the elite would allow this to happen if there wasn't some kind of rationale or plan behind it?  It's completely out of all proportion to the virus b0llocks.

Trillions of fake dollars/euros have been created and pumped into the system ... who gets 'first dibs' on all this new money?  How long will it take to 'trickle down' to the 99.99%?  Generations to come will be up their eyeballs in debt ... perpetual slaves to the vampire class.

First rule should be to preserve your trading capital so sitting on the sidelines during conditions of  extreme volatility is a valid trading strategy. When a short Wall St position had the stop loss hit a couple of weeks ago due to increased volatility it was time for me to sit, wait and observe until the next valid entry signal occurs.

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
