That's easy for you to say, right? I bet you volunteer at the Salvation Army and live off the dole, don't you :)
Depends on what you mean by "equality" and "inferior".
There's a little blonde girl living down the street from us, and God bless her, she is inferior. Saw her the other day chasing a squirrel around the yard with a vegetable slicer. ?????
I'd hope that we, as a society, could make sure that folks like this don't go homeless when they come of age, and at the same time, I'd hope anyone inventing a new type of semiconductor would have a larger income, and higher quality crash helmet if applicable.
It's hard to tell. We suspect there are some. There IS a multitude of SPY traders checking into ER's nationwide, but there's also some confusion as to how many tried Pud's "Japanese Chicken Ramen" mmmm mmmmm good recipe.
We should know more about it later this evening.
LOL. Mostly just having fun, but for the record, I'm more than OK if sushi doesn't exist.
Fack no. Back in the mid eighties, doctor told me to put raw eggs in my malt liquor. Only way I'd ever get any protein.
I'm steeping some sea weed for my "mmmmm mmmmmm good" Japanese chicken Ramen.
Hey, if your dropping in, make sure and bring some bonito flakes, some good smelling ones. Got plenty of chicken, and the section 8 neighbors are bringing the ramen.
Anything that involves "bonito flakes", (judged by smell, mind you) and "Skpjack", (think I'll skip it, Jack), sounds like it should be avoided. Not to mention "steeping seaweed".
I tried the barter system once. The guy at the movie theater didn't want a live hog in exchange for two tickets, snacks, and he didn't have a live rooster to make the change with anyhow.
Interesting. Is there such a thing as "Free Willy?"
I sure hope so, because I bought all my kids Free Willy T-shirts.
In the coming years, everyone will have internet access in this country, no doubt we sort of all do already.
Fingerprint scan technology could definitely give everyone the opportunity to vote, conveniently, and eliminate any illegal votes as well. The fingerprint will be linked to so many stats, such as age and residency status.
Yes, add "None of the above" with a write in space, or "protest vote, not represented" options.
The bot owners would get there "market maker" cut in the top example.
In this market, though, the guy selling the covered calls would likely get what he's after, but the guy buying the calls will likely watch his money vanish.
One thing I've noticed, it's almost always better to sell the options these days, I mean, more than ever, it's foolish to go long options but with some rare exceptions.
The best way to trade now, in my opinion, is to sell a credit spread on either side following a move that goes deep overdone.
I used to trade very actively, up until about three years ago, now I put in less than ten hours most weeks, with better results. The markets continue to evolve.
Let us hope there can be change without violence.
I never said voting was the answer.
Perhaps the 90 some odd percent of us can all agree on one thing, regardless of ideology......
We ALL AGREE NOT TO VOTE.
Or we all agree to write in "Mork from Ork."
Let's see if there's a scenario where it's not necessarily so.
Trader A buys 10,000 shares of "XYZ" corporation, and sells 100 call options, and is willing to part with them (take a profit) at the strike where the calls were sold.
Trader B happens to be the guy who bought those 100 calls, and it so happened that they expired deep enough in the money to deliver a profit.
The two biggest problems a trader faces these days?
1. Shooting yourself in the foot (this has always been #1).
2. HFT bots that will #$%&^ up sure as heck if you're using many techniques that used to work just fine, but they're programmed to "sniff out" those strategies and respond to important "breaking news" simultaneously....forget about it.
There are some old strategies with new twists that work well here, I'd be a fool to share much detail right here right now.
Maybe start with what we don't need. Before I dive in, I just want to point out, that some of you are of a different ideology than I am, but perhaps not so much as you think. I think one thing we do have in common, is that we want a better USA than what we've had in recent years.
I believe some common ground can be discovered, and ways forward can be found, better days need not be out of reach. We've done it before and we will do it again.
We don't need protesters shutting down highways and stopping people from attending rallies. We live in a democratic republic, and that should mean people can support whoever it is they choose to support, politically.
We don't need to be divided and conquered by ourselves. We don't need ignorant, hateful stances that get us no where.
We don't need a sudden jump in min.wage to $15 per hour, that would only put smaller businesses out of business and give larger corporations an excuse to simply shift into full automation mode quicker.
Nice sampling, there's more, but enough of "don't need" for now. How about some of what we do need?
Here's something that there seems to be a lot of agreement on from both sides: We need to bring back manufacturing to the USA.
We need to take our market back from the HFT menace. The markets were never meant to be used the way these machines use it.
We need to recognize one another as fellow citizens first, and ideologically second, or third or fourth.
United we stand, divided we fall.
So, with that, I just want to say, I hope you're having a great weekend, no matter where you "stand on the issues" as it were.
I agree completely.
That's why we should go back to a progressive tax schedule, that rewards corporations when they do things that take WORKERS off the government teat. Kind of like FDR did.
You sit their in your lazy man clothes with your pipe in hand, right up by your dry lip, talking about whiners and spoiled brats, when after all, it's whiners and spoiled brats you've been brainwashed by, or worse, it's you.
It's people who bust their butts day after day that want things to change, not welfare recipients at the bottom, nor the top either.
