Well, there you go. I think that's exactly the question.

Something would be better than nothing, and would be a place to start. Anything would help.

Bob.

Yes, exactly. And remember...Too many filters and you don't place a trade.

Just like with guns, Too many laws and no more guns allowed.



There are many gun laws in place as we speak. So how do we tweak those or add to those without banning guns. (excluding fully automatic weapons, which are already banned without a license that is very hard to get)

Now Don't filter yourself out of a trading job Bob! lol

I just love this analogy. Nice when you can come back to trading!

Mike's been going through multiple hospitalizations and operations for some time now.

He hasn't posted in his main thread since he started the latest of these. No way to know more right now.

Info, what we have, can be found here: https://futures.io/elite-circle/28410-big-mike-ecuador-372.html#post704610

One can only hope things are going well, and wait for word.

Bob.

Slightly off the gun topic, and I know somebody will start screaming about freedom of speech but I found this interesting. It just highlights how differently NZ are treating this than the what would happen (or not-happen) in the US.

NYTimes:- New Zealand Bans the Christchurch Suspect’s Manifesto
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/22/world/asia/new-zealand-christchurch-shooter-manifesto.html

New Zealand classified his so-called manifesto as “objectionable” on Saturday, making it a crime to possess or distribute it anywhere in the country.
and
Prosecutors have also gone after people who shared that video. As of Thursday, at least two people had been charged with sharing the video via social media, under a law that forbids dissemination or possession of material depicting extreme violence and terrorism. Others could face related charges in connection with publicizing the terrorist attack, under a human rights law that forbids incitement of racial disharmony.
and with regards to freedom of speech
These cases are possible because while freedom of expression is a legal right in New Zealand, the parameters are more restrictive than the First Amendment guarantees in the United States.

Not the greatest article out there but I did find this summary table interesting - although the medium/large calibration separation could do with some clarification. Guess it's no surprise that high caliber guns have higher fatality rates.
