Very interesting assertion and i agree with you but... don't you think trading oil only adds to that human irrationality.
Don't take this personal or as an attack on you I'm just pointing out some imbalance on words people say and things people do.
Standing against the machine and still buy their products doesn't do much for the change. People talk about evil corporations but in the end they still consume the products they produce. Just an example: drinking Coca Cola or eating MacDonald s contradicts the idea and just supports the opposite but people don't see it and still blame the big corporations without realizing that the change starts with each one of us and within. One simple action can change the World we live and that is, I believe, the refusal of participating in their game. In other words, people should say 'No' and do not buy their 'Shit'.

just my point of view nothing else.

Cheers.

Oh! By the way.... regarding computers now... 😄

As you said 'My my, last Friday just minutes after I made last post my system crashed. Some virus. PC has been restored only today and still only one monitor is working. taking it back to the shop tomorrow'

Like you I had the same issues happening to me way too often. That was the reason I switched from Windows to Mac 5 years ago.
I had 6 Windows machines and I replaced them all for Mac's (I only use 1 for trading by the way) and every since I haven't had a crash or a virus. I don't even have an anti-virus on my Mac's neither anti- spyware programs to protect me and everything has been fine.I cannot say the same about Windows: I had all the protection there was on the market including firewall's but didn't help much.

I'm really happy with my iMac. 21.5-inch: 2.5GHz $1,199.00
Cheers.

I think that change from within is impossible. all changes were brought form outside including Coca-cola and Big Macs consumptions. Consumer society did not exist before the government decided it needed to utilize that capacity for manufacturing that economy had. I think circumstances will bring another change or government will. You know, this junk food consumption ruining population health and actually helping to increase USA debt through rising medical expenses while enriching some corporations who are getting rich by ruining people health. IU thin k there will be a lot of big tobacco like law suits in the future.

I like Macs but seems too expensive compared to regular PCs utilities now as regular Windows machine are really cheap and perform rather well and I have only had 2 virus related problems of this magnitude mostly because my wife keep pop up options on I think.
We are thinking to get second PC or laptop on Boxing day. It is cheap ow and will be even cheaper so I can use this PC or second PC solely for trading.

In case you don't know you can install your windows OS straight on a Mac machine and it will run faster and will be more reliable than if you run it from a Windows machine. It's all about Better Performance nothing else. I wouldn't call it a hobby. I call it better than Windows in every way.

I mean by 'Change from within' a change from within each one of us. In other words a change of one's self starting from inside us.
The same goes if you want to be a better trader you'll have to change from within.

If to take myself I did make a change probably back in 1990 but was on the way even earlier. I have been to McDonald's only once in 1990 just to check what's all fuss about, but I do like Pepsi a glass a week usually on Saturday 😁
They would go broke with this kind of customers.
I think that 'change from within' cannot happen to may people. Most of the people has no will power and are weak. They cannot change themselves.

I am looking forward to old trends continuation. Another legs so to speak. my worries are aud/usd and gbp/nzd. generally , I am not interested in aud/usd now but will keep my stop where it is. It looked like a good trend start when I entered. I think I was actually a bit late with my entry. so far no signal to close.
