@DaveO: Thanks for your reply of February 17, 2011 01:47. :-)

(I was probably feeling a bit raw & sensitive after a frustrating day's trading (more like non-trading, really)).

So, you don't rate Bl. Swn. then? Interesting. I've only recently found them, so I have no axe to grind there.


BTW, I now have the strength meter that we (and Cat) talked about. Very interesting. Not the Holy Grail, of course, but provides a fascinating view on the currencies in a different way to the usual price charts. It's kind of leading me to trade a bit more technically than I previously used to, which seems to accord with the view you've expressed here a few times. "Technically with an informed fundamental/sentiment view", I like to think of it as :-)

Cheers,
M.

Dave? I hope that wasn't aimed at me? (or did you mean "Dr Ben"?).


I hope you didn't assume I was spamming the forum; I certainly have no connection with the people behind that report (who seem pretty balanced, on the whole). I've been subscribing to their free stuff since someone recommended them to me recently. I wasn't planning on paying for their services any time soon, and certainly wasn't pushing anyone else in that direction.


I don't really have a personal opinion myself on "Dr Ben". He's probably a lot cleverer than I am, but that may not be saying much :)

@Catnip: You have praised "Dr Ben" here in the past. You might appreciate this article, if you have not already seen it:
https://www.mcssl.com/content/166063/CC/021611_CC_final.pdf

(You might need to have signed up for their free newsletter before being able to see it. A google on the title, "What if Ben is right and the doom-and-gloom crowd is wrong?", might possibly pull up a copy.

(There is a plug for their services at the end, which can be ignored, but there is genuine content ahead of that).

Re: the hijacked tanker: I read a Frederick Forsythe book recently, which involves a modern pirate hijacking. Only fiction, but his fiction tends to be fact-based. If it's anything like he tells it, these pirates have nothing to lose and are incredibly ruthless and don't hold the lives of the crews at any high value. Pretty grim really.

I wonder who can possibly be underwriting these CDSs? I mean if a major economy defaults, who is possibly going to be around to pay the winnings on the "bet"?

@SUBWAY90: I don't know what you are trying to achieve with this personal vendetta against Catnip, but you are now becoming very boring. If Ashraf is reading this, I hope that he considers banning you for your persistent negativeness. Catnip makes a positive contribution to this forum. I have yet to see one from you. If Ashraf is not reading this, then I shall email him and request that he consider banning you. Some forums have an "ignore" facility - this one doesn't, but from now on, you are on my virtual "ignore" list.

(Wrong forum really, but never mind...): How long are you planning on holding that?
You must be more optimistic about the UK economy than I am!
