You have to be careful about that. if you hate losing then you may be willing to do things to avoid losing (like moving your stop, turning a scalp trade into a swing trade, not cutting losses short, etc.).

Losing is the reality of trading. As long as you keep loses small they cannot hurt you, so there is no reason to fear or hate them.

Ye, very well said. I am aware that nobody has 100% wins, i can bear with loses as long as at the end of the day/week/month or even year, i am not losing overall

... that most of the gold held by GLD might be from the same manufacturers, all US in the 90's. This story might not get much play in the mainstream media, but it is potentially huge. If true - and thus far it looks like it is - it means that the US is absolutely and utterly finished as the dominant financial power. That was already getting obvious. But for us it means something more important: within the next few years the US futures markets might start to basically fade away in terms of relevance and thus liquidity. Something to consider viz. the long term.

European and Asian bonds might emerge as the biggest instruments in the next few years.

.

I found your thoughts on this very interesting.. I am not really well versed in all this; though, I'm reading up.. I have been trying to think ahead in a similar way. This may not be the right place on All You Need, but if inflation takes off, if the dollar tanks and/or gets replaced as the world wide currency, and if one trades the European and Asian bond markets, by trading these instruments, is this a way to trade in another currency and cash out in that currency? Is there a way to do something like that? I am trying to think ahead to ways to trade or invest if the dollar becomes a problem.. instead of ending up with a wheelbarrow of "a lot of nuthin'," potentially.

Even people trading gold or the gold ETF, they don't have gold bars in possession.. they are still (if they live in the U.S.), are cashing out in dollars.. Maybe this seems a bit extreme but any thoughts anyone?

if you trade UK bonds = british pound, swiss bonds = swiss franc, rest of europe (important markets) = euro. same way in asia.

yes you'll trade and cash out in another currency. but don't forget, if you live in us, then you'll have that currency risk as well.

QUOTE

I found this quote from Websouth on the "Frustrated Sucker Game?" thread and thought it was one of the most profound things that has ever been said on the Big Mike Forum. Here it is..........

This is really all you need to look at. All the oscillators and overbought oversold indicators just really show this. I am a visual person and this works for me. Settle on this and tell yourself that you have no other options. This is "the view" of the market you have. You can zoom or pan but this is it. Stop searching. You found it. Now practice trying to take a piece of it

The previous quote is #10 on the "Frustrated Suckers Game?" thread. I particularly like the line where Websouth lays it down......"Settle on this and tell yourself that you have no other options. This is "the view" of the market you have. You can zoom or pan but this is it. STOP SEARCHING. YOU FOUND IT."

The sooner traders figure this out....the sooner they will become profitable.

Just my 2 cents worth. Thanks Websouth.

Jeff

Goldilocks: such things are over my pay grade! My suspicion is that if the dollar goes, so will most western fiat currencies, but that's just a wild guess.

I was cruising through the infamous TRO thread and found this chart:

https://futures.io/attachments/general-discussion/2116d1253014972-never-lose-again-therumpledone-trosrat-60-min.png

I like the look of those stats etc. Does anyone know where I can get that indicator? Not only would l like to have those particular stats, but I could use it as a template to code some other things. That thread started off in this one, I think, so it's not totally off topic!
