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.

-- Big Mike

just a regular dust storm or what? looks cool nonetheless

Not really
They said it is once in 70 years like that...

Normally a sand storm comes typically from the Sahara
This time it was more coming from Saudi Arabia

It creates a very unhealthy atmosphere
In the middle east people died from it

You should refrain from any heavy efforts in this weather

Now all turned back to normal. It took +/- 5 days

Wow,

This word actually makes sense and is linear.

timber-flooring-grinding-machine-renting-agency

As there are lots of old buildings around, many people have rent a grinding machine to refurbish the old wooden parquet in their appartments.

How would you put this word in English or French? Would it be easier?


Masters of Non-Communication

Priest and lawyers are those who have always tried to dissimulate the meaning of words. The use of the Latin language for the bible, and of course the continued use of Arab language for the Qur'an have the main purpose to hide the meaning of the words from the general public. Hence the priests keep the monopoly of the interpretation of the holy messages.

The same approach is used by lawyers. This explains that the most cumbersome words in German language have all been created by lawyers. Here are a few samples:

- Grundstücksverkehrsgenehmigungszuständigkeitsübertragungsverordnung
- Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz
- Verkehrsinfrastrukturfinanzierungsgesellschaftsgesetz
- Vermögenszuordnungszuständigkeitsübertragungsverordnung

If we do not accept those legal monsters of wickedness, there are also a few regular words available:

- Elektrizitätsversorgungsunternehmen
- Geschlechtschromosomenkonstellation
- Spartenbetriebsführungsgesellschaft

but as you see they cannot compete with the monster words created by lawyers. More interesting, there is even one word that has 25 different letters and does not repeat a single one!

- Heizölrückstoßabdämpfung

This is definitely my favourite!

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)

In English you would put it into a sentence.

If that shop was yours, what would you put on the sign to tell your customers that you rent out grinding machines for timber floor?

I'm sure If you know a bit of German you could make out what the different components of the word mean despite the lack of spaces. It would probably be difficult to remember the correct order or how to join them. Reading is a lot easier than writing.
