    A fun trading game.

    Well, give it a try yourself, it takes a minute to register on it, and let me know...

    A fun trading game.

    I found around a great little trading game. It's basically paper share trading (with, currently, a limited range of actions), but, hey, it's free, and very nicely done! Try it out there: http://tradingdoors.com/ We could maybe run a small competition there for fun
  3. It's more a geological mission than a biological one. That's it, he's just just pointing out that fact. They can't directly look for life, but whether life was possible through geological analysis.

    THE GEI TRADING TEAM thread

    Bump myself. Look where NOK was in september last year, look where it is right now (I reckon we'll see further sliding in the next year, time for it to restructure... Or go pop)

    As far as I understand, he's been long term bullish all along, but worrying about the short term outlook and risk, something most of us don't care (much) about. Nice hearing from you again
  6. The CDC is not your usual bank. It more like the federal reserve bank, although it does have an insurance as well as an investment bank subsidiaries. I think this 10 item list is probably a list of the 10 safest banking entities, rather than listing banks that are customer facing.
  7. I'm sure she would if her party wasn't about all about suppressing two tenants of the French motto: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libert%C3%A9,_%C3%A9galit%C3%A9,_fraternit%C3%A9 There would go equality and fraternity...
  8. Not to mention the humiliation of the French People... It's true that low rent demagogy sounds attractive when compared to weasel faced Sarkozy and dull and soft Hollande.
  9. I'm curious to know who voted that science is immutable and why? AFAIK, by definition, the scientific method dictates that science is mutable (through a well defined process).
  10. It's crazy! I still don't manage to understand what dynamic would allow that to happen. Unlike nature, finance doesn't seem to abhor a vacuum

    The Greenest energy ... is Free Energy

    As a matter of fact, I haven't. What happened? Edit: ah! Adam Trombly, the guy in the video above! Edit2: That's great, he already has a machine that generates free energy. Then all he needs really is to connect it to the power grid and generate income (like your solar panels at home), then with the proceeding, build another more, and then with the proof of income, go to a bank, ask for a loan, build dozens more and be rich. No government will stop him doing that (unless his free energy machine presents a hazard or uses fissile material, which by his own definition it doesn't...)

    The Greenest energy ... is Free Energy

    Yet, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, unless you want to keep them confined to your imagination : I'll be more than happy to reconsider my position when we see prototypes of concrete applications of his theories!

    The Greenest energy ... is Free Energy

    It's amazing the imagination that some seem to have! I suppose I can't follow because my water/(dried!)grey matter ratio is too low! I can't wait to see the reproducible peer reviewed experiments proving unequivocally what he hypothesises about

    Warpig, great info, thanks. Is there an "official" place where I could check that info; in fact, I'd like to know if owning bullion, through online bullions vaults or the actual physical thing is also CGT exempt. I keep seeing contradictory statements on that matter, which is annoying. Thanks!

    Of course! Depends as well on how much you trust the fact that you'll be able to pay your mortgage without having to move home (that's my main problem, especially since it will mean my golden mattress will shrink almost to nothing in the process )

    Yes, it's a calculation of how much you want to lose in renting over how much you want to lose in property price. At least you KNOW how much you are going to lose with renting I'm also looking for a property now (even placed a -rejected- offer today:)) and, interestingly, have been through exactly the same thought process as he has and coming to the same conclusions.
  20. So do I... I'm sure we'll see silver hitting 1600% of today's value one day, I'm just wondering if I'll get to see it during my life span.
  21. What timeframe do you have in mind when you say, "a little longer" ?

    Yes! All of us are right! For different reasons. And with different goals. Okay, let's move on

    No no, I was just referring to the temporary "beating the crap out of...". Surely that would tickle a bit B&Hers?? (Edit: even non-hardcore ones)

    You're being unfair, warpig. Whatever Bubb may in essence say, is to be prepared. The "method" is just not to put all your eggs in the same basket. As far as I know, the current paper trading system didn't blow up and is not 100% guaranteed to. As far as I know, the gold isn't 100% sure of losing its intrinsic value wrt fiat money. We may see either, or a range of possibility in between. I think owning physical and paper counterparts to hedge their value *in case* doesn't mean you sell all your physical (in fact it's up to you as to how much you want to retain). And it could mean you can get more physical as you build up. And either way it goes, you can retain some of the benefit. But that's just my view, and I think DrBubb to have opened my mind to these tools. By going 100% one direction, you take a gamble. You may be right. Or not. DrBubb warns you take risks. People take offense at the "evil trader" who uses the corrupted system. DrBubb also sometimes gets a bit "enthusiastic" and provokes (cf. renaming beating buy and hold thread) DrBubb also has a view that could be disconnected from our realities. In fact, we all have a different experience of life and have different needs. Pure B&H for some, pure trading for others, and a mix of those to those who think it makes sense....
