    BITCOINS : General Discussions (combined)

    Interesting recent price action and other things http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1t5ofu/please_sticky_usa_suicide_hotline_1800273talk/ Top of the Reddit thread for BTC - always a good place to look to get a feel of that martet = a suicide hotline On the other hand with recent talk of the investment banks wanting to get in on the BTC trend it seemed like the thing might have legs after all. There was a suggestion that Cicada (see below) could have been an intricate Inv Bank ploy to seek BTC miners http://metro.co.uk/2013/12/16/cicada-3301-the-most-elaborate-and-mysterious-puzzle-of-the-internet-age-4229892/

    Nigel Farage: An Emerging Leader for the UK?

    Hmm I have to admit I was not aware. A little digging: "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster." -Friedrich Nietzsche + he also said The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends. -Friedrich Nietzsche http://www.fhu.com/articles/hate1.html = interesting if rather long - not sure about this one... http://bolesblogs.com/2005/05/30/we-become-what-we-hate/ One bit of hard advice I received while I was a graduate student at Columbia University in the City of New York was the warning that — if you are not vigilant and demanding of your talent every day — you will slowly become what you hate.

    I find this both interesting and a big red warning sign - a contra sentiment indicator. Apparently people dived into a stock called Tweeter - which happens to be bankrupt LOL because they thought its stock symbol was Twitter - which has not even finished its IPO !!!! Has now been renamed -“THEGQ.” Its old symbol was “TWTRQ.” A big red warning for Tech booming stocks possibly ? http://www.theprovince.com/business/Bankrupt+retailer+Tweeter+stock+soars+confusion+with/9011912/story.html NEW YORK — Tweeter is not Twitter. And it’s changing its stock symbol to avoid any confusion. The bankrupt electronics retailer’s new ticker symbol is “THEGQ.” Its old symbol was “TWTRQ.” That was apparently too similar to “TWTR,” the symbol proposed by Twitter on Thursday when it filed plans for an initial public offering. Some confused investors sent Tweeter’s stock up as much as 1,400 per cent on Friday. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Wall Street’s industry regulator, halted trading of Tweeter’s stock Friday afternoon. The over-the-counter stock resumed trading with the new stock symbol Tuesday. Tweeter’s stock is down 71 per cent to 2 cents in afternoon trading. Twitter’s stock, meanwhile, won’t be available for trading until the company actually goes public. That could be before U.S. Thanksgiving.

    Turtles - Trend Following

    Covell does his own podcast. I listen to selected guests. http://www.trendfollowing.com/podcasts/ You cannot trust anyone in this business so on that basis not sure if he is just a salesman as am very unsure as to his links to the original Turtles and to his own actual trading activities. So there is your risk warning. But he does have the occasional excellent guest look way back he had Jack Schwager twice, plus some of the original turtles. More recently Jim Rogers. And lots of just himself bigging himself up...... Inverviewee list is shown at that website for ease.

  10. Not that I go in for this kind of stuff but the idea of BILDERBERG FRINGE is a good one, bound to get some press attention.
  11. Being rather lazy I choose to type GEI into google search bar as it involves less keyboard action than typing the full website address or finding it on favourites However for a while now hitting the google link which supposedly flags up the GEI website brings up: http://url4short.info/dc5fd295 screenshot as PDF attached Wonder if anyone else gets these problems Bubb think you may need to check your links /any URL abbreviations.

    Tributes to Steve Jobs & Photos

    Ashton Kutcher spent time in the hospital after going on one of Steve Jobs’ infamous fruitarian diets to prepare for a new role in a biopic featuring the late Apple CEO. Kutcher plays the tech titan in a new feature film called jOBS, which hits theaters on April 19. “First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to, like, some severe issues. I ended up in the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was, like, doubled over in pain,” Kutcher said to reporters at the Sundance Film Festival, according to Mashable. “My pancreas levels were completely out of whack, which was really terrifying … considering everything.” (Jobs died after a long battle with pancreatic cancer in October 2011.

  14. Most likely is TCF = Treating Customers Fairly in regulatory terms. Maybe TD have had problems in the past and are worried about annoying the regulators? Wonder if you will be able to trade leveraged ETF's again with TD ?

    Just for laughs

    On REDDIT they have a thread NOT THE ONION for news that could be from the Onion website but is actually real - one posts a headline and link, must be my poor sense of humor to find some of these amusing example New App Lets Icelanders Bump Phones Before Sex to Make Sure They’re Not Cousins http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2013/04/17/islendingaapp_icelanders_bump_phones_before_sex_to_check_anti_incest_app.html
  17. The MSE crowd strike me as too tight to fall for a ramp such as bitcoin! However the trouble is we live in a world where making a profit is often equated to being clever and being correct. If you warn against a rising market you are fighting the tide and will therefore have the impression of being wrong. Too many people forget to distinguish between being right (ie sometimes by luck or taking undue risk), being clever and making a profit (which may have been made by luck or taking undue risk).

    North Korean Madness - Rockets aimed where?

    Not totally convinced this is not a hoax website but still - not had chance to view vid http://www.thecivilian.co.nz/north-korea-threatens-to-kill-nicolas-cage/ North Korea threatens to kill Nicolas Cage !! The hostages – all appearing in the video to be North Korean soldiers wearing wigs of various colours – were shown being held at gunpoint on three chairs in front of a giant portrait of Eternal President Kim Il-Sung. The video stated that if the United States military did not withdraw all forces from the Korean peninsula by Sunday, the hostages would be executed one by one, starting with Nicolas Cage.
