  • 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.

Congress and politicians for being in the back pocket of oil and placing the interests of financial statements over the interests of the environment and safety, perhaps?

If the regulations existed to make this thing safe, we would not be where we are. This is not a post on whether we should be drilling or not. It's a post of, if we are going to drill, we should be safe about it. But oil just buys congress and gets them to do whatever they want.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Seriously, politicians make it way too easy for them to start drilling without answering all the what ifs first. Now is my favorite part, where they put their little engineer caps on and go play engineer for awhile. Its kinda like what they do during wars. Once war is declared let the generals run the show.
Instead of seeing the President on TV everyday talking about what they're going to do I'd like to see someone from the Army Corps of Engineers talking about what they're doing. Don't get me wrong, this is not a small problem that can be fixed overnight. I just think that between BP and the U.S. government there are enough smart people to come up with a solution without politicians slowing the overall process.
