Propaganda is their stock in trade...
One by one Central Banks are beginning to lose control of the financial system...
When you compare the price of gold to the monetary base, the ratio is at an all-time low. What does this mean?
Months of BTFD momo mentality lost in days... so we thought this was appropriate
Clever .. not funny ...but clever
Too much Truthiness.
I completely agree.
I would also add a few crevices on the flat surface.
great view from the noose.
Had to do a double take because of the source joke. Agreed.
Funny how nobody is talking about the Cattle futures & OJ futures making historic (inflation adjusted) highs. No way can that be healthy for retail margins.
Soon Amazon will be the only retailer,
and Bezos will still lose money. WTF?
rideit till you die!
only in real life, there is no highsec
I thought it was the IPO market...
Great, but the 3 coloured lines need to be consistently above the black one (otherwise don't change a thing, it's very funny thank you :) )
hmmmm...I don't see any Goldman or JP Morgan Types in that Graphic? Must have accidently trimmed that part....where they're sitting around popping Champagne, fist bumping and high fiving each other.
They don't lose money trading silly, that's why they're not on there.
I thought they were well represented by the bulldozer.
They don't trade, they steal. Al Capone's numbers raquet wasn't gambling either.
Where is a nail gun on this chart?
Look at all those muppets being bulldozed to their graves.
Gartman's still on the x/y axis.
Hey you finance people are supposed to be good with charts... at least label the axes correctly.
X axis should be Skill.
Y axis should be Time.
So if I become a trader I can go back in time? Cool!
Your net worth can, and it will.
But you will get older fast, learning and re learning how to be disciplined enough to stop those reversions from becoming career enders.

Van Halen, butchering another perfectly great Kinks song....
you are not a trader unless you have cheated death a few times or have died several times and come back from the dead as a zombie trader. the eyes give us away.
When you start noticing how often an ambulance is parked in front of your office building you realize there's something deeply wrong going on around you ...
I'm long the crony 3X levered short Bureaucrat-Statist ETF.
(Bull Shit for short...lol)
That's great, nmewn,
but I'm trying to figure out who I can tell that to who will understand it;)
Thats the problem ain't it?
Just like Goldman Sux, the government has its tentacles in everything now...from food, to tech, energy, autos...you name it.
Let's pitch it to knucks as a real ETF.
He might do a master piece of a rant before he realizes we're just drunk;)
lol...he's much better at than I.
Him and stooging, I can't contort myself like those two.
But I'm trying ;-)
According to that graph, trading is the easiest job while social work is the hardest job. With very minimal time spent, the trading skill goes parabolic. Social work is mostly flat, showing only marginal gains in skill as large amounts of time are spent learning it.
For proof, just look at "Community Organizer"......
start high, stay high. then buy a nail gun.
See mom, trading IS a profession, it says so in the chart! So stop asking me when I am going to get a real job.
I already said the equity market charts looked like the Matterhorn at least 6 months ago.
I like the parabolic/vertical trading chart with the blow of the top hook..after which there is no way but go down I'm afraid with same down momentum
Maybe it is better to laugh all the way back to the gas chambers.:
Now can we show the learning curve of a entrepreneur, at least the fuck ups are on his nickle.
Sure this is the majority of daytraders - but it doesn't mean that those who follow the market's signals can't be successful.
I remember that graph. It's funnier in the original context of the learning curve for popular MMORPGS from 2008, with Eve being the top one. https://www.flickr.com/photos/23579228@N04/2335016192/ Man I am getting old.
+1000 - cheater spotted!
That's only because to be successful, not only fo you have to be able to recognize the fraud, but be complicit in it.
Stolen picture. Originally, this is learning curve of EVE Online. Red blue and green lines does not belong there.
