I got rid of him Grin

We can now get back to discussing trading and finance without having to tip toe through australian bullsh1t and holding our noses.

(Apologies to the forum for taking this long, I thought he'd cut his losses and leave right after I exposed he did't even know how money gets created, or had no idea what hyperinflation is but he had no shame. I guess not knowing what the price of oil really is pushed him over the edge. I wish he posted that question sooner Silly)

I'm not too sure that Menelaus should be dancing any victory jig.
Imo it all ended in sort of a crazy draw.
Menelaus was streets ahead on technical/theoretical economic knowledge, but Mr Ben seemed actually to be equally as far ahead on actual ( short term) trading predictions.
I doubt whether Mr Ben actually made millions as he claims ( I sure hope he did though), but he did seem to get it much more right than wrong.
Whatever it seems that now we're stuck with Menelaus and all his high tech gloom and doom, and no Mr Ben to counterbalance things in a low tech, down to earth manner.
More's the pity.

For a chap that was supposedly leaving the forum, he has actually made it into a dictatorship

Im just emailing Betfair to rename it the "Tradefair and Menelaus" forum.

Seriously, have any ETFs "failed" yet?

Has the capitalist world ended yet?

My buy and hold stocks are still trading.

And losing value every day, worse yet when (not if) the market capitulates they'll be no room for you through the exits.

If you don't care about that, knock yourself out, buy and hold.

And yes, "capitalism" as most of us defined it, has ended. Not allowing TBTFs to fail ended capitalism, perhaps you haven't wrapped your head around that yet.

what a claim to fame !
being the undisputed authority on all matters economy a gambling website full of degenerate losers ( can't quite remember the it 90% have losing accounts ? )
whether it is sports betting or investing/trading, just remember to treat all claims of success with the huge pinch of salt that they deserve.

People I've never met around these parts before are falling out of the trees to post advice this morning. I suspect the use of the term "degenerate loser" might be introspective. Shocked

obviously you are one of the 5/10 %
one of the things i have discovered in life is...those that are doing well are generally supportive and genuinely pleased for others to replicate that success, those that are losing or lead a miserable existence, want everyone else to fail too.

Now unless you are a complete newbie to this forum, you will be well aware of Menelaus' " crash and burn " theory on how all the current market intervention by various Govts. ( note I prefer the phrase intervention, Menelaus prefers manipulation) is all going to end.
But you don't have to accept this theory, and many all over the world in fact are rejecting it ( me for one).
But the question I'm starting to ask myself, due to Menelaus' ever increasing stridency on this matter, is whether he is really trying to covince himself, more than us ?
Why does he feel the need to shout the same things over and over again from the rooftops on here ?
It all is starting to reek of a basic insecurity in his own opinions ?.
Is there some doubt starting to creep into his mind ?
After all, how long can he keep waiting to be proved demonstrably right ?
The markets are not yet one way refelecting his core arguments, are they ?
