@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 :)

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"?

(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!

Oh dear, if that's the case, then there is no hope for us (in GB) at all!

@DaveO: After I posted the question, I found another posting of yours that referred to it, and in the context realised that it must refer to Elliot Wave, of which I am of course aware (just a bit rusty after a longish break!).

I have to plead guilty to being a lazy trader in that respect, in that I have never studied it properly, and am therefore agnostic as to how useful it is.

There used to be a regular poster on here who posted EW-based trades, but I can't remember her(?) name. I've not noticed her(?) since I've been back.

Thanks for the references.
