Another viewpoint



Quoting 
If you are blaming the protesters, or are mystified by them, then you just don't get it. Denial is part of the problem. Too many people have yet to wake up to the fact that they have already been victimized. They are playing along with the dishonest shell game of extend and pretend that the Fed and other central banks and governments are running. It's time to get real, wake up, and face the music. The longer the game goes on, the worse the consequences for the 99%, and ultimately for the 1%, whose ranks will be decimated at some point, and probably not peacefully if this scam is allowed to continue for much longer.

Better hurry up with those walls around the Luxury Golf Communities, and lay in a few years' worth of fine alcoholic beverages, golf and tennis balls, those goofy tasseled golf shoes, over the knee socks to go with those stylish Bermuda shorts, tennis togs, Alzheimer's medications, and imported high end motor vehicles (preferably armored) while you're at it.

Here is an idea, who will join me? We should develop a unifying theme for these 'citizens' so we could sell some t-shirts to the crowds in various cities.

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.
6)

Power to the people. Wall Street has been rigging the game for far too long. This depression was engineered to transfer money to the wealthy. In 2008 hedge fund made record profits. Get ready for part 2.

Pull out a few bankers cane them so all the suffering protesters can take pictures with their iphones and ipads. Come on are things so bad that these protesters are having to give up their xbox live accounts or unlimited mobile data plans. This nation is not perfect but we all have it pretty good. Even the poor in our nation would be considered middle class in many places.

In my city the occupy Wall Street gang surrounded a Bank of America for charging $5 per month debit card fee. Really $5 per month and the masses rage. We have it so bad.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Your comments are true. We do have it pretty good, but I also don't think a great many are mainly concerned about not only themselves, but the general 'direction' and that we do not want the 'games' to be played any longer.

So, the point to me isn't about how bad we have it and poor us, but more inline with 'quit f-in us and playing the political games'. No more GS or other New York Bankers allowed to set foot in a government office. Hell, no more government! haha..

The government (our own corrupt one) has ENABLED these bankers as they have infiltrated the regulatory arena. These people to me are just saying, ENOUGH!

bluemele I hear you on that but most of these protest want more government. It is not just about not giving GS access to government. It is about taking money of rich and distributing to what they perceive as an inequality. They want the government to to punish the successful and give it to them. Has nothing to do with earning it or coming up with their own great idea. It is a welfare mentality which is amazing since most of them have smartphones, drive cars, macbook pros and ipads.
