Re: Stock scream room

What I think of technical analysis is that it works, but the machines/algorithms see the crossovers, trend line breaks, etc, a gazillion times faster than humans, so unless you have an automated system directly connected to the market like HFT firms do, you are fighting a losing battle. Fundamental ...

Re: Stock scream room

pmward, I have read through Sophie's responses, and none sound like an attack, more like her strong opinion. I don't think she's going to try to convert 100% of your allocation to the pp. That said, I am 52. Not sure how old you are. I have tried it all, day trading, options, spreads, covered calls,...

Re: The Permanent Supplement Regime

If I could go back and change one thing about history, it would be to wipe out Ancel Keyes. He should have been fired and forced to retract his papers, given all the scientific misconduct (cherry-picking data) and logical flaws (e.g. ignoring the effect of cigarette smoking). Yes! Even now, though ...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Anyone buying physical metals over the weekend in response to recent events in the Middle East? I came close at least three times but held back. I would buy at 1300/oz. That has nothing to do with analysis (although you all know I’m a huge fan), but it would be a good spot for lowering my avg cost....

TLT sure has come back down to earth. These cycles are quite interesting to watch. Like it picks up speed when rolling downhill.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I'm sure we'd all love negative rates right? The bonehead is the one who is tweeting and will lose more and more retirees if interest income becomes an expense!

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Now Hasbro has joined the Woke crowd. ::) Monopoly, the infamous family board game that has ruined friendships for over 80 years, has decided to take a heavy dose of the “woke” pill. Hasbro is debuting a special edition of Monopoly which “celebrates women’s empowerment” by giving female players mor...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

One assault or rape is too many.

Re: Stock scream room

3 1/2 months left in the year. PP was up 17.5% a couple days ago. Up 15.3% today (yes I am looking daily) Weird sense in my stomach that someone is going to pull something out of their a** and that 15.3% is going to be in the sub 5% range by Dec 31st. Gold back at $1200. Crap like that. But I also d...
