The Education of a Speculator
Victor Niederhoffer 1997
'I am an old trader, and I trade yen in the cash market. I once had the best record among all traders........
But I got in over my head. I bought the dollar when the dollar-yen was 93. It went to 88 in just a few hours. I was eaten alive. The banks will not give me credit anymore, aand man of my cusomers have left..............
They are afreaid that it will crash asi ti did in 1929 and 1987. they look to me to land a big return, but without risk or drawdown. I can do it; but they don't want me to gamble, and I cannot do it without gambling....."

you okay cb ?
trading is all about handling doubts, 100m long yacht or rubber made rowing boat for some is ..a question of being able to afford and for others an issue of interest. I am doing very well with trading, mainly because I enjoy all aspects of trading, including the doubts process.

you take pride in presenting what I call 'gunslingler' trades.
VIX, Lumber, NatGas as opportunities to make money.
If the trader calls the short term move correctly the rewards can be large. An incorrect reading to the tea leaves OR an 'unexpected event' and the trader is trapped with mounting losses.
I don't know if you actually put on these trades or you just like to talk it up. Oh yes of course you have a magically risk/reward formula in place that protects you from loss. If you system is that great what are you doing on this board, you should be sailing the Med on you yacht.

It's a little like Brexit.

Political prisoners are ok for Europe in Spain but not in Russia.
Russia has no problems with most individual European countries but has a huge problem with European bureaucrats trying to destroy Russia and Russian speaking people.

The Dollar Blow Up Scenario
While the US dollar remains the main global reserve currency, given the loose monetary and fiscal policies being pursued, it pays to consider a scenario that would undermine its reserve role that would see a run on the currency.

the us 10 has been quite simple since the summer. on the one hand you have powell keeping a lid on yields but on the other the 50dma supporting. its been a great in out trade. we are talking yield not tick chart here btw. so the odds are 1.28/1.32 high and back down. 50dma is now a little over the 1% mark so on a closing basis 1.05 is as best as one could expect to buy in at. this one is strictly buy the dip (yield) as all risk is to topside break.

The Iron Law of wages in America.
You pay the working poor just enough so that they don't die otherwise you don't have enough workers.
If you pay too much too many people are willing to work so can lower the wages again so that enough people die and then you raise wages again.
And so on and so.

Yellen Pro Digital Sales Tax ?
One of the most contentious areas among G7 countries has been the effort to reform corporate taxation of multinationals. Negotiations over a compromise package designed by the OECD have been stalled for months as the US threatened to impose tariffs on European countries in retaliation for their new digital sales taxes.
In contrast, in Friday’s meeting Yellen struck a positive tone according to several G7 capitals. The US agreed to a deadline of the summer to make progress on the issue.
One official familiar with the meeting’s events said that Yellen reinforced the US commitment to resolving the digital tax impasse at the OECD and insisted the agreement had to work for everyone.
