    The pressures of a roboworld can place on an investor are vast. The definitions, or rather directions, of the roles we are expected to play are changing in a dramatic way. Under such light, the question of how one fits in an investment world which does not have room for him is an unavoidable question to have. For how can one be part of the investment world, when the world he is part of sees no value to human input? These questions are especially amplified when even traditional investment advice, will be ruled by roboadvisers. The idea of playing with elements such as historical trends or company valuations or behavioral finance or any other human aspect of investing, to analyze, simulate and predict future price movements will be useless. Soon enough, because of the rapid and uncontrollable evolution of investing, we’ll even have to invent “robocops” to regulate and supervise their own kind. The current developments are so confining it dooms and destines its members to comply with them or suffer because of them. It is quite clear that those who remain true to traditional ways of investing will be losing out because of the absence of any traits of past experiences. Who by the end of it all will find themselves having being forced to change and in turn be changed more by machines than they managed to change the machines. Ultimately, accepting machines for all they are and not caring for all they are not. In conclusion, I equate the effects of this environment with those of a curse, where there will be no antidote to it. In other words, if switching to algorithmic trading, automated analyzing, roboadvising and robocompliance is a conscious choice, and if this development shatters the reality we know to be true only to replace it with a bleaker one, then is continuing to write about human investing experiences worthwhile? I think not. This was my last thought as I sign off from this board for good. After note: and no, I am not drunk as someone here suggested.
