Learning the old man’s only nine swords

Why? Age? <– this person should read the articles

Gosh, I’m 51 and working harder in my J.O.B, less money, less time for myself, no clear direction in my life. Need to retire from that and into other initiatives. I’m so unfocused, i’m not even depressed

We can fix the person from the last comment, just choose and act from the following

live streaming on financial independence no more on Youtube Instagram or Facebook

Hello to all, this is a vital message that you should all be aware of. I did three videos today on YouTube while live streaming on topics (eg. financial independence) including:


Gold sucks as an investment
How taxation is a crime against your financial independence
You cannot rely on government to take care of you when you retire in later ages as 80+ years.

None of these video topics or content promoted hate nor violence. It did not go deep into any political party or affiliation. It just seems that you are not able to be freethinking and have liberty in your choices of expression or opinion.
My videos are on these topics were removed from YouTube without warning or any strikes against my 8+ year channel.
These videos were starting to gain traction, These videos and live streaming Were removed without notice.
I think all properties of Facebook and Google disable our ability to be free thinking and have financial independence. I have looked at other alternatives where there is no such censorship.
In this wacky world of 2020, I have pretty well decided to remove myself from these technical overlords. I am looking at alternative YouTube hosting at bitchute for video and parler for social. I know I trashed One of these sites in the last few weeks but I have no alternative.
I have recently removed myself from windows since the telemetry was off the hook. The first updates did not help in the trust I had with Microsoft.
I am now feeling free of any Tracking found on windows but found liberty in open source
Mint Linux.
This is a note for you to take heed on what is going on out there on social media land and even on your computer desktop or phone. It is pretty alarming when you think about it.
Being on any form of technology from also of Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple are very dangerous to be on. If you choose to use any of these products or services, you are being tracked and monitored for what you say. If you also run a business depending on these companies, you are leaving yourself to a very vulnerable situation.

Bid ask delta trading via market data

You might want to consider trading off of order book data. These links help understand the concept of this depending on your market data source

There is also the concept of market delta trading

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/topic/6031-delta-volume-in-intraday-trading/page/4/

Here are some highlight quotes from these links

 
Like I said before, delta only tells you something in context. If there is a high delta with high movement, that means market makers and reversion traders have pulled their limit orders for the time being. If you see a high delta with low movement, especially in the context of a level, you can take that to mean that aggressive buyers or sellers have run into a large amount of limit orders

I am not sure I can answer the difference between institutional versus retail since I am not clear on the definition of what institutional is myself. Take for example, TelventDTN, the company that owns the technology behind the IQFeed service, Kinetick service and Prophet X service. IQFeed and Kinetick target the retail active trader where Prophet X is mainly installed in institutions. Different target markets, same technology. CQG targets institutions however; we just announced partnership with them to address our main demographic, the retail trader. Zen-Fire, technology used in institutions and prop shops however, NinjaTrader/Zen-Fire heavily used by the retail trading community. My point is that here are three products that clearly overlap both retail and institutional space using the same technology.
 
Let me clarify some definitions…Market data service only provides data, trading engines provide data and order routing.
 

• Unfiltered data: Some provide it, some provide option to aggregate it, and in the case of the trading engine providers, filtered vs. unfiltered is dependent on the FCM who hosts the technology


• Time stamps: All market data vendors provide time stamps however, only some trading engines do thus, the client application must add a time stamp to incoming ticks


• Historical data: All market data vendors provide it, most trading engines do not


• Historical bid/ask prices per tick: Most vendors do not provide this


• Compression: Some vendors provide compression, some optional compression some do not


My response likely does not make things much clearer. I think the point is simply, what do need as a trader? My comments are based on my direct experience in working with and writing to 15+ market data/brokerage API’s.

Some complicated research papers were mentioned as well

Great Financial Reset: IMF Managing Director Calls for a ‘New Bretton Woods Moment’ with crypto?

Here is an

Here is an article that was noted in my Facebook group. There will be some form of a financial reset thanks to this pandemic as defined by the International Money Fund. It will involve some central based rules on Digital Currency issued by central banks. This is why they are threatened by the original concepts of crypto coins like Bitcoin. So now they want to control and the access of point of it.

As you know. Bitcoin (BTC) is now old as compared to a better alternatives like Monero (XMR).

https://news.bitcoin.com/the-great-financial-reset-imf-managing-director-calls-for-a-new-bretton-woods-moment/

XMR is not centrally controlled or owned so central banks and the IMF are threatened by it. Did you know the US Internal Revenue Service put a bounty on cracking the algo of private or anonymous coins like Zcash and Monero? Why do you think that is? And no, this has nothing to do with crime syndicates like they want you to believe.

You should be more concerned about your financial liberty as opposed to your local central bank having the ability to track your transactions. Why do you think they are threatened by private coins?

This does not take into consideration in how governments are getting desperate to subsidize their huge national debts which few talk about. They will need to implement higher tax rates as well to track your private transactions. I am quite surprised ignorant major media pundits are trying normalize this situation and vilify wealthy for wanting to preserve their capital.

Either way, you choose which way you go but there will be some form of financial reset to bring back control your government/central banks will have over you. Why do you think Monero has outperformed Bitcoin double or even triple depending on what time frame you look at?

XMR/Monero appears to be the only true last hedge out there in this financial calamity!

Does Jim Simons Have the Mark Zuckerman Curse? Webinar tonite too

This title is interesting on it’s own. If you have a subscription to this source, please let me know to the details of this article. One person did offer feedback on it though: (note webinar details for tonight as well)

How about Medallion though? To be fair that should be the benchmark, not the funds that are open to the outside investors as his and his funds’ astonishing track records are coming from that one, not RIEF and others.

Do you agree with this? To me, this just shows Simons can have tough years like the rest of it. That is all.
