Hmm.. well as the Retirement Account goes.. by the time you need that gold, the gobs of cash in those safes will only be useful as wallpaper and you will undoubtedly need every one of those guns and more when the starving hordes find out you have that gold.

My guess is that before it all gets to that.. our government in its "infinite wisdom" (yes, a total crock) will once again confiscate our gold should the time ever come for us to depend upon it for our economic survival.

Long before any of that comes into play, our Government will pass a VAT tax to temporarily assure a kitty to support their profligate spending habits, they will institute new "means" tests that will exclude all but the very poorest seniors from drawing upon their Social Security and/or Medicare benefits and they will effectively steal the $15 trillion of our retirement balances in 401k and IRA accts., etc. via new Government Annuities, as they strip all other competing retirement investments of their tax deferral status to assure conversion into their government coffers.

It's going to be one long and rocky road from here to there and frankly, life as a trader, despite the lack of fair or level market access by all participants, is still quite enjoyable in comparison.

Interesting charts. What are you using to generate them?

Mike

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)

according to some "wisdom", we are only hours away from the "crash". normally a good day for such an event is Friday.

I think a good point to consider this scenario is when we take out the recent low (around 1050 in ES).

a good strategy in this case would be to concentrate more on pullbacks. imo a very good method is in the jeff cci thread.

This has just been a needed correction. My bro in law had already taken leave of his senses on risk and was mad in march that he was "only" up 5% in the first quarter after the huge gains a monkey could have made in 09.
10k DOW will be another gift from the risk gods for all our long term accounts.

flash crash level

approaching flash crash level (1056). going to be another interesting day. the conditions are almost too perfect for a real bloodbath. I think volatility might not be a problem today. happy friday.

right about the open of RTH market dipped below the flash crash level. but didn't spend any time at all and got rejected. followed by a huge run up. another positive sign was the strong up move into the close. those two factors are normally bullish signs. but for me the outlook remains uncertain.

the truth about the "professionals"

when I started this thread I was hoping someone would make a certain statement. well it never happened. but I found the statement I was looking for in another forum:

I can only say bravo. you would be surprised how many professional traders actually lose money. of course there are some with huge profits, but they have something you don't have. it's called "FRONT RUNNING" and or "Connections". yes trading is that easy.

interesting development


what is it going to be?

yesterday we had a strong rally after fomc. but got rejected fast. then overnight and early this morning the market tested 1140 again and failed.

market also tested support area around 1130 several times and so far it was holding. right now we are at that level.

so where is the market heading?
