And the film: "The Plot Against the President", available on Amazon Prime and elsewhere is brilliant.

[Watch that film and then tell me Trump is going to win the recount. The forces against him are legend.]
I will watch tonight.

I'm struck by the entirely separate and parallel fact universes that are flourishing currently!
It's no longer about a healthy functioning system, it's about winning @ any cost.

This is where it has run off the rails. It is like parents going to watch their kids play ball and being more concerned that their team wins by any means necessary rather than that their kid tried their best, learned something, and was a good sport.

It's a cultural degradation that is universal across the west. It needs to swing back the other way! Winning clean is the only thing of value, all else is a deceit.

Sadly, no.
People are much more interested in what the Kardashians are doing and which sports teams are winning their divisions. And who's dancin' with the stars.
They have much bigger issues on their hands, ya see.

As long as the steady diet of bread and circuses doesn't get interrupted, then the masses seem to be just fine.

Perhaps you missed all the covid lockdowns and lack of circuses. I dont know but I think this one has a giant twist ending.

Did they ever come up with a decent excuse for shutting down the ASX?

I've not looked hard yet but I think not, nothing I've tripped over yet.

Ehh, the bad part of this forum is creeping into the good part of it.
Only until we have a result, it is kinda part of the deal here.

Disclaimer, I don't follow this thread.

Is there cause for concern about "Building back better"?
Yes, it is code for "The Great Reset". Google World Economic Forum (WEF) and read about their plans for humanity.

By the way, I'm not the worst of this forum. I stay right here on this thread. That's my creds.

Just to say something market related, my current biggest winner [of the WTT system] is MELI which is up 66.25%. Here is what the chart looks like:

[There has been a rotation in favored stocks lately. Towards hospitality and away from 'those who do well when we lock down'. It wouldn't surprise me if the rotation goes back the other way based on the 'dark winter' narrative. But for now...]

[Oh shit, is that market related?]

[I adore the adaptive stop loss settings in this system. They switch between 40% and 10% trailing stops depending on current market conditions. That is a brilliant stroke for this system.]

Sydney has very strong game. Not sure what to think.
No... It would be a hell of a thing to prove out. That sort of scale is hard to adsorb.

It''s been statistically proven in two different ways, in multiple areas. Yet those people are pissing around with small time stuff. Yes, I'm getting annoyed.

Unfortunately, in this case, stats are not proof. It could have occurred, granted it needs a really special explanation, but... still.

IMO it should be a basis for a reelection but you need time to clean up the method/system.

ASX Issue may be ongoing...

Due to ongoing ASX issues there may be delays in the processing, amending and cancelling of orders. Please be patient as we work through the backlog with the ASX, which may require us to review orders under our obligation to maintain a fair and orderly market. To view the status of any open orders select Trading and then Manage Orders from the menu.
Looks to be the result of a system's change gone wrong!

LOL


I miss the days when it was my job not to fuck things up on a wholesale level! What fun we had in the wee hours of the morning swearing about some stupid software vendor or another. Glad it isn't me that is all I can say!
