  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

The italian economy is not in good shape, nevertheless the short speculation on the country does not reflect the fair value of its state, the perpetrated attacks are an attempt to cover other countries' problems (US included). Time will set things in a calm and rational state, for all those who are seeing a catastrophic future, do not underestimate the historical capacity of markets to react to panic selling. That beeing said I do not read the news but the charts, some optimism is always good, it's cynical to bet (edge funds) against a country's default and think it might be the cure for another.

It's not yet the end of the financial world, the cycles will continue their natural corse.
