The American People Don't Need More Handouts - What They Need Are Good Jobs.

Thought I'd share this with the group. It echos some of what I've believed & have been saying all along. Not sure what the answer is, but this helps identify what some the problems are.

Probably not news to anyone, but it was an interesting read. John Mauldin and Harry Dent are also good sources for anyone interested in where we all might be headed.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Read the Great Reckoning or Prector's At the crest of the Tidal Wave: Liken it to the start of Dark Ages II. There is no way the US can continue to lead the world in all areas as it did since Work War II. It is not about patriotism, but an economic reality.

This is what happened to Rome: It endured a 300 year long & steady decline. For the US this will happen much faster, Will take years, but for most people the average US standard of living will continue to decline.

Sorry, but that is my take. Can't be helped. Huge disparities in wealth, resources and opportunities can't be ignored forever and there is nothing that can be done to keep the disparities between rich and poor nations a large as they currently are.

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.

Haahaaa! That was insane.

Must be a dedicated soul to do such a task for 5 years one would think or is that what burnt out CL traders do in their spare time

Having trouble

Hi Mike,

I seem to be having trouble (yesterday & today) - web site real slow to load - don't know if it's on your end or mine & now I've noticed the "REPLY" buttons are not appearing. I was going to reply to a post someone made, but can't. Just got this message, trying to open the site again: "Safari canít open the page ďhttps://futures.io/Ē because the server where this page is located isnít responding."

Thanks.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I don't have Safari, can you try Internet Explorer, FireFox or Chrome and let me know if the problem still exists?
