Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

If you had one bottle of single malt whisky, you will also easily understand the meaning of swing highs and lows.
Due to the asymmetric nature of markets, swing highs (peaks) are flat and last longer than swing lows (troughs) ....

Here is the proof (even 70 proof):

I'm more of a micro brew guy but High West Whiskey is pretty darn good and I feel like I'm back in the old west when drinking it. Really interesting selection to choose from and obviously very nostalgic.

No Americans?


Well, how about an American in Macedonia?

Here they have rakia, which is from grapes. Some other fruits too in neighboring countries, e.g. plums, but mostly, here it is grapes.

I read once that Northern Europe tends to have a history of distilling from grains, and Southern Europe from fruit, because traditionally that was what was easy to come by in each region.

Seems to be true, but at any rate, here nowadays the quality is all over the map. I literally have some that came in a plastic Coke bottle, and I save it for when I need to clean my inkjet cartridges. (works well!)

At the other end of the spectrum, I am lucky enough to have a friend who won several gold medals in a recent competition in Belgrade. Now THAT stuff is good! It tastes more like a cognac than whiskey, but it is aged in barrels, along with a secret mix of things like almond shells.

And, I hate to admit it, but should one have more than a few, the price on the little grey cells is a lot lower than with most other distilled spirits.

Finally, the tradition here is to always have food with rakia. As my landlord explained to me, the difference between a derelict and a refined gentleman is that the latter eats when he drinks. As anyone here will tell you, "It is not a sin to drink, it is only a sin not to eat!" So whatever your poison, don't forget the "zakuski." (snacks)
