    Hey guys !
    I just wanted to take that little time while there was no action to express myself a little bit as I nearly never do it, being shy by nature and since English isn't my language.

    I've been a premium member for nearly 1.5 year and next month I'll have to step out for a while because of the relative small size of my accounts, but I'll be back, and that's a certitude because there is tremendous value around here !  I've been trading full time for more than 3 years (and by that I mean that I'm always here when the market is open, but I also do a lot of work and reading and thinking outside those hours !).

    I've been managing my father's account, which is only a small part of his net worth, and that has been very rewarding (financially and otherwise) for both of us, and I'm proud to have my own account since a while now. That one is growing fast and steady, kinda like the income portfolio, but I'm using more of the potential buying power initially since I'm adding regular money into the account.

    Trading is such a passion for me that I've went from never have been able in my life to work 40 hours a week for a year without getting suicidal, to now having work at least 80 hours a week for more than a year (2 other jobs than trading), and starting to feel real good. Even though I was only doing it for my dream at the start, now I've come to enjoy that tremendous amount of works, that I was hating before, for… making me a stronger human as well. They say the rewards is more in the travel than in the destination, and for those of you who are still travelling (and really, who isn't?), I hope you always remember to be joyful in that trip !

    Someone once said something like: "What you do in one thing, you do in all thing". By having become a better trader, I've also become a better person. 3 years ago when everyone, including the *best* experts were capituling on my life, I did DD and hells did it pay since then ! I'll show those so called experts that they were dead wrong thinking I was a value trap ;)

    So I wanted to take this little time to say a huge thanks to you guys who are offering big value (and you know who you are !). Among others, Yodi I did appreciate a lot of your recommendations (and easy going) lately and Pharm for your presence day after day.

    stjeanluc merci bien for all the effort and time you are putting in the community here, this is nothing short of tremendous. You also strike me as a good trader and very wise person. You are adding a lot to the board and you are one of the big reason this place is awesome to be around.

    Phil !! Thanks for that tremendous education on every side of the politics, economy, business, trading, life and thinking and in particular in all those way to use options to your advantage. What a brain you are ! I also do appreciate that caustic humor :)

    Have a great weekend everyone !

Assange Hits Back At The Intercept - Claims "Obsessive And Obscenity-Laden" Campaign Against Him

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Julian Assange hit back at The Intercept over a February 14 article claiming he backed Donald Trump's presidential campaign in leaked group chats from a disgruntled former WikiLeaks associate who set up the chat room. 

[I]n the fall of 2015, Trump was polling at less than 30 percent among Republican voters, neck-and-neck with neurosurgeon Ben Carson, and Assange spoke freely about why WikiLeaks wanted Clinton and the Democrats to lose the election.

We believe it would be much better for GOP...

Rallies Continue But Still Considered Relief Bounces

Courtesy of Declan.

The bounces playing out for markets still have the look of relief bounces - at least until technicals confirm net bullishness.

However,  long opportunities present themselves. For the S&P, price action looks to be confirming a double bottom which should be enough to see a challenge of 2,873. Today's volume was lighter which suggests the rally from here will be a struggle but 'climbing the wall of worry' will suit bulls at this point.


The Nasdaq played out a similar move to the S&...

The tricks propagandists use to beat science

Via Jean-Luc

How propagandist beat science – they did it for the tobacco industry and now it's in favor of the energy companies:

The tricks propagandists use to beat science

The original tobacco strategy involved several lines of attack. One of these was to fund research that supported the industry and then publish only the results that fit the required narrative. “For instance, in 1954 the TIRC distributed a pamphlet entitled ‘A Scientific Perspective on the Cigarette Controversy’ to nearly 200,000 doctors, journalists, and policy-makers, in which they emphasized favorable research and questioned results supporting the contrary view,” say Weatherall and co, who call this approach biased production.

A second approach promoted independent research that happened to support ...
