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.

Groden, your penchant for stereotyping folks seems to know no bounds. Your understanding of the Constitution, on the other hand, seems somewhat limited. And your lack of empathy for those killed in mass shootings -- and for their families -- appears non-existent. It's as if the threat posed by shooters with weapons is somehow less than the threat posed to your misunderstanding of the Constitution.

And finally, so I'm clear: I'm a Democrat. I own three guns. I know how to use them. I hunt my own meat so I am not subject to the processed meat industry. If you want to give me grief, I can guarantee you that I will not "cower." And I will be happy to defend your right to your opinion, even though I respectfully disagree with it.

Now, back to trading.

Way to go Michael.

But you are the exception that proves the rule.


Grodon
If the Democrats were in charge, the troops would be advised to "run, hide, or...............COWER!

And it looks like the whole San Diego "active shooter" scenario was PHONY!


Comment
ONE person reported 3 loud noises in a parking structure. NO-one has been injured,

Active Shooting: NMCSD Tells Personnel to ?Run, Hide or Fight? » Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

Probably cooked up by some.........HYSTERICAL DEMOCRAT!

But the response was NOT PHONY.

Let the children RUN, HIDE, AND COWER.

For adults, the response to "active shooters" must always be..........FIGHT!

Sometimes I wish I could thank my own post. A post on a thread not about trading and a post not about anything at all. A post that simply celebrates life amidst gloom of so much death. Lets hope that mass shootings go out of style as there hasn't been one in quite sometime.

Quoting 
FBI: Man Plotted Machine Gun Attack on Masonic Temple

FBI: Man Plotted Machine Gun Attack on Masonic Temple - ABC News

What's wrong with that headline?

Well, the guy's name was Samy Mohamed Hamzeh.

And he planned the attack to show "nobody can play with Muslims".

So the headline should read, "Islamic Terrorist Plotted Machine Gun Attack on Masonic Temple."

But it took the FBI a week to figure out that San Bernardino was not "workplace violence."

So it'll probably take them another week to figure out this was an attack by an.........Islamic Terrorist!

Sheesh!

Grodon 1/14
The Shanghai Composite is about 2900 now, down from over 5,000 in August.

And the comparison chart with 1929 says it could go to 2000, another 30% down or a total of 60% down since August.

It's getting there.

Shanghai down to 2672 tonight.


Quoting 
SHANGHAI 2672.45 -77.33 -2.81%

It's already down 50% from the over 5,000 high six months ago.

That's what I call a crash.

But the Chinese stock market is not widely owned in China.


Quoting 
Chinese Stock Markets Do Not Matter

First, Chinese citizens do not rely on stock investing for their retirement (they mostly rely on their children).

Second, Chinese firms do not raise capital via the stock markets (they mostly rely on banks loans, which is why four Chinese banks are among the largest in the world).

Forbes Welcome

But still that is already a HECK OF A CRASH and it looks like it really could go to 2000.

And already a wasted $500 Billion in market bail outs by the Chinese gov't, which have all failed.


Quoting 
After three intervention efforts requiring US$500 billion by China’s central bank and government over the past six months to stabilize the stock implosion, it has become clear that China authorities cannot prevent the markets from imploding

China-Canary in the Global Economy Coalmine? ? print version | Jack Rasmus

I feel sorry for those people over there.

But I would hate to be the last one to sell.

And I'll bet a lot of Chinese feel the same way.

So there could be an even faster CRASH now!

Since the Chinese people are disarmed there won't be any mass shootings.

But could be some MASS STABBINGS.


Quoting 
A series of uncoordinated mass stabbings, hammer attacks, and cleaver attacks in the People's Republic of China began in March 2010..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_attacks_in_China_(2010%E2%80%9312)

I think we are watching a real financial tragedy unfold.

But maybe the Chinese government can still turn it around with more bail outs.

DREAM ON!

We have a worldwide audience here, I'm curious what the rest of the world thinks about the craziness and normality of mass shootings in America.

Sent from my phone


the public are either dumbed down or dumbed up, it all depends on what the current administration/government wants the public to think.

freedom doesn't come on the back of a cheerios packet (fill in the details and you will receive instant freedom - within 14 days), and nature doesn't tolerate the weak.

don't throw away your freedoms, constitutions and birth rights on the whims of some despicable left wing (democrat), self loathing fantasists.

the world needs a strong america,...and keep your guns too.

Just reposting as the hyperlink was bad



Its well thought out video and accurately explains the US issue as both a problem of exceptionally high lethality of gun related crime peculiar to the US plus ridiculous availability and unskilled gun owners.

As someone from Rep, of Ireland who lived in the the UK a lot too I know no adults who have been affected by guns there. Although I have relatively few US friends and acquaintances I know three who died by gun suicide, another's 15 year old shot accidentally through the wall by a neighbor (also committing suicide and somehow missed, I'm not joking)...

Its the gun suicides that worry me more than anything. Rarely do guns give a second chance.

Literally just today I had to help a very distressed American friend out who was about to be arrested over an unpaid/unaffordable fine because her cat got lost and the local animal shelter decided to crush her underfoot. A nice woman with no record, working two jobs and who was genuinely not negligent but the county knew they could extort her. In Europe this would simply be regarded as racketeering by officials but as people are truly horrible to each other in the US... no wonder shoot to kill is the norm?
