  1. Didn’t have time to post yesterday... Taking money in the morning and trying to keep from giving it back in the afternoon ( ... and you would think - I know I would - after all these years that wouldn’t be an issue )... anyways... Yesterday morning predawn I had a dream that I gave my grandpa (rip) a used but high quality tractor with a back hoe on it and he backed it down a bank and adroitly pulled a large fresh stump out of the ground with just the right amount of rpm, clutch, and lift and pull on the hoe... Later in the day I saw this quote “There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” HD Thoreau... This morning it occurred to me, the “I” is at the root of evil... just sayin’ If no one posted in TL yesterday, did anyone even click on TL ?? more rip?
  2. Not all the time - but more often than you think - a trader has to draw a line in the sand of his or her own human condition... I'm just sayin'

  4. preface: I don’t really give a rat’s ass about education or quality of education... ie no special interest in education That said, I do harp a lot on how the 'voice of trading‘ education paradigms can cripple noo traders’ development. My own ‘schoolin’ education was a mix of private and public and was much higher quality than typical even for then. No matter - it too interfered with my development as a trader and hindered the journey to a personal awareness of that interference. See yourself in any of this? Point is - your ‘scrool larnin’ is likely interfering with your development as a trader in ways not mentioned above and in ways you have never even considered... just sayin...

  6. I’m the only one asking these questions? No... and I’m not the only one thinking if it took Czechoslovakia six freakin months to separate, why is GB ‘separating’ from the EU slated to take up to 6 freakin years? Even better time comparisons could be drawn for breaking up the whole dam soviet empire. So which one, GB or EU, is providing the snags and drag?

  10. Musings re TL I’ve committed to ‘spending’ a few minutes a day on TL ... now every few years days minutes I wonder what the fk for. TL has a dearth of quality posting. By that I mean a lack of both peer to peer posting and knower to noob tolerance for ignorance and/or ‘stupidity’ ... (btw, I have rarely acted as a ‘peer’ or claimed to be a quality poster up here...I’m posting for now as an episodic resident folk sociologist... and no I will NOT try to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbJuEFs7-kU ... just sayin’) ... in general, TL has trended from mediocre way back when to plumb vapid now... and although initially the ownership was actively engaged and recent site owners are not, I don’t think that’s really much of a factor I see some of that low quality and quantity as a by-product of the toxicity of social media (... there were forums BEFORE fakebook came along ya know...) and as a reflection of the relative lower numbers of people trading these days - other gamings suck off a bunch and the myth that the individual trader can no long compete with algo and institutional trading has resulted in a lot of non starters and dropouts. Also, traders are a bit more introverted as a rule than many other more public endeavors, so trading forums are never going to be huge shimmering cities to begin with. Imo, the education model the last several generations have progressively been subjected to doesn’t help a bit to ‘bring forth’ personal growth... students are not used to being told the truth anymore...and they are certainly less inclined to speaking the truth back than ever before. they're trapped... So few are ready to grow beyond the prevailing educational paradigms to the type of 'learning' trading requires. And finally and most important, trading methods skills are highly individualized and not readily transferrable ... Ever wonder what the ownership is really thinking? ... they thinking board it up?
  11. How far above 1.30 does EURUSD need to go before it's still not trash ?
  12. btw, my third best automation contract this last month was ECZ18... was surprising in that several other instruments on automation had much more intraday travel this month (except of course for nq and ym - the 'winners' ) than the EC ... turns out that travel factor was overcome by strings of nice clean signals almost all month long System runs all day and all night Setups on 40 minute bars, triggers on 220 tick bars... the instrument is relatively thin but it is amenable to dynamic sizing repost... Anyone have an assessment of the outcomes for the EU and GB of a hard/no 'deal' exit ? . For example, I'm having trouble understanding how all important trade would necessarily just suddenly stop, etc... thx

    Tom says it 'more better' "Why is Gab targeted? Because Gab is a true alternative to Twitter which exists outside of the control of the financial and political oligarchy. With the recent passing of the EU’s “Link Law” which is designed to shut down opposition voices, the merged corporate/political oligarchy are moving to ensure that all speech is criminalized. But to do that they first have to square the circle around that pesky First Amendment in the U.S. And that means outsourcing the censorship to the companies who own the internet access points – the app platforms, the social media giants, the hosting firms and payment processors. If you can’t build and maintain a business then you can’t oppose their rule. ... " https://tomluongo.me/2018/10/29/attack-on-gab-proves-speech-was-never-free/ the Hypocrisy is a tell ... Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical authoritarian dictatorial power with forcible suppression of opposition and strong centralized regimentation of society and of the economy. The only factor that differentiates fascism from the inevitable outcomes of centralized socialistic forms of government is that individuals and corporations can still hold title to property and enterprises ... Ie it’s less hypocritical than socialism... the elite oligarchy doesn't have to hide their exploitation s from the public as much as they do in socialistic/communistic states... You should not have read this post - in today's world ignorance really is bliss

Hours after it was revealed that Saturday's Tree of Life Synagogue shooting suspect was a user of social media network Gab.ai, PayPal severed all ties with the platform with no explanation. BREAKING: https://t.co/J3Rfto6fi3 is now banned from Paypal "just because." pic.twitter.com/VA1NhY5zhr — Gab.com🍂 (@getongab) October 27, 2018 Perhaps Torba was banned after he spoke ill of Big Tech: If you are a terrorist the absolute worst place for you to be online is https://t.co/J3Rfto6fi3. We will work directly with law enforcement without hesitation, as was displayed today. Can the same be said about Big Tech? — Gab.com🍂 (@getongab) October 27, 2018 Gab's blacklisting has not gone unnoticed: Update: PayPal has cancelled its relationship with social media company @getongab in wake of the Pittsburgh #SynogogueShooting .. but not Facebook, where he reportedly also had an account. — scott budman (@scottbudman) October 27, 2018 Hey @getongab: I haven't heard anyone complaining that @facebook and @twitterallowed the Mad Pipe Bomber to have multiple accounts with them. — Jared Beck (@JaredBeck) October 27, 2018 Gab is not a white supremacist site. It’s a free speech platform. “If you’re really in favor of free speech, then you’re in favor of freedom of speech for precisely the views you despise. Otherwise, you’re not in favor of free speech.” — Noam Chomsky https://t.co/FfAeOipdy3 — Cassandra 🦇 Fairbanks (@CassandraRules) October 27, 2018 I cannot believe this. CNN and @BrianStelter, who I like, are blaming GAB @GetOnGab for the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting. — Carmine Sabia (@CarmineSabia) October 27, 2018 The Pittsburgh terrorist has a Gab and facebook account. - Gab immedietly deleted his account and issued a statement CONDEMNING it. - Facebook has yet to issue a statement. Yet @paypal has BANNED Gab "just because", but hasn't banned facebook. What's up? https://t.co/1aPY5vvleE — PeterSweden (@PeterSweden7) October 27, 2018 Others were happy to see Gab get the "Alex Jones" treatment, including "The world's youngest hedge fund manager" Jacob Wohl, who called for a police state with the suggestion that "Law enforcement agencies should embed thousands of undercover accounts on the site and establish watchlists." @getongab I'm looking forward to you receiving the Alex Jones treatment and being permanently banned from the internet, even if it does bend the law. — Robert Caruso (@robertcaruso) October 27, 2018 The concept Gab pursued, of being a “Free Speech Platform”, is noble. But let’s also be realistic. The site is a one giant cesspool of Jew-hating lunatics. Law enforcement agencies should embed thousands of undercover accounts on the site and establish watchlists. — Jacob Wohl (@JacobAWohl) October 27, 2018 Twitter is one giant cesspool of Jew-hating lunatics. We have nearly 800,000 users and you are going to generalize them all as one thing? Let's be realistic: you are no better than the left, which you rally against, for generalizing millions of people as "racists." https://t.co/HdXvqJ13zU — Gab.com🍂 (@getongab) October 27, 2018 Alternatively, Gab has a "mute" feature. Nonsense. I muted maybe 20-30 accounts on @getongab and that got rid of all the anti-semitic garbage I used to come across. THAT is the concept. They get to spew crap, I decide whether I want to see it. "Giant cesspool". Get real. — Peter A. Dykstra (@FriendlyRadical) October 27, 2018

  24. Fake news friday CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker:"there is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their attacks on the media." Paraphrasing POTUS Don Trump: "there is a total and complete lack of understanding from the mainstreammedia about the seriousness of their attacks on the republic." ... MSNBC's Chuck Todd says he "has this fear" that the bombs shipped through the mail to prominent Democrats "could be some Russian operation" to sow division in the US. TL’s zdo says he "has this fear" that the bombs shipped through the mail to prominent Democrats "could be some Democrat operation" to sow division in the US. ... Twits - "...according to another follower tracker, Trump's followers have actually declined. Is Trump right, and is Twitter throttling Trump's followers? We expect a response from Twitter shortly, denying any knowledge of the president's allegations." Maybe Don should grow up ie face the hidden agendas of his (mostly robust) personality disorders and realize he’s hit the peak of simple mind followers and needs to adapt and and grow by adding more intelligent discourse 'somewhere' besides twit... sans pc of course... just sayin'
