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.

No different than Congress receiving all of its money from the people that write the laws, and they vote on.

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.

Another Defeat Device on VWs


According to Bloomberg
EPA's New Volkswagen Probe May Reveal Failure to Disclose - Bloomberg Business
another Defeat Device is under investigation by EPA in USA!
This device has been used in cars of different years. The working pattern is not known.
The result so far is that the 2016 diesel models in USA do not have a certification yet.
If the new found device is also fraudulent then the scandal will go into a new round.

430000 US VW cars with fraudulent software

will need more than only a software update to reach standards
Mister Horn declared in his answers at the US congress.
Volkswagen rechnet mit hohem Verlust*- Phaeton-Nachfolger gestrichen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Out of 500000 VW diesel cars in USA these 430000 will need a special katalysator and eventually more devices.

If this is true for US cars then the big rest of the 11 million in Europe will have the same problem...

As a result VW brand needs to save money now and has cancelled the project of the new Phaeton immediately.
As well some budgets for public relations and some high donations to sports clubs are affected.

Loans for clean diesel engines to be returned?

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
VW Loans for Clean Engine Development Under Scrutiny, EIB Says - Bloomberg Business

Hoyer of European Investment Bank EIB said:
“If we determine that the loans that we have extended to drive engine developments have not contributed to combating climate change, but have possibly done the contrary, then that is a reputational problem also for us,” he said. Hoyer suggested that the bank was unlikely to request the loans be repaid, saying it had no interest in seeking to “wreck” the company."

The outstanding sum given to VW since 1990 sums up to 1,8 billion EUR.

As VW has a lot of cash and set already a sum aside for the cases on the line
they could in such case try to get out of the debts first. If the costs of those
would rise...

But a downgrade will have immediate negative impact on the stocks...
And for new debts of course - if there are any to be made.

What about forced buybacks? That could add up quickly.

As mentioned in an article (earlier in the thread) VW has around 80 billion with all daughter companies
and brands before going broke. They set aside 7,5 billion for the cases in next quarter. 20 billion in cash will be
enough to handle the EIB debt.

For sure the unsold cars, the reparations and the eventually unsolved problems on older cars will be
a heavy burden and the long uncounted fights on the courts are most unpredictable.
This can be the death for a large dinosaur like VW.
