    S and P 1950-1960 then correct to 1810-1800.


    Shedding more longs save some low valued solid growth yield names. Made my year, being conservative looking for some stinkers to short. Don't have to look very hard.

    Ever trade gold/silver? I bought a couple ounces of silver in the 20$s and rode the wave up until the 40$s before it reached the all time high. Now I look at the market once in a while. What's your opinion on it?

    I used to run prop trading at an inv bank in the early 1990s.. in 1993 I lost more money on the opening in silver than could imagine when the Chinese dumped Gold and Silver... of course back then Gold was $390 -$355 and Silver was like $5

    I think this shows the Aug 93 collapse... but in those days a $0.50 fall was a 10 ATR move which is like a $5 move today

    I still have nightmares about Silver

    I prefer Soybeans and Corn, Coffee, other FOODS but am really a bond trader.......... whatever that means in this day of phoney markets

    I think I will just buy a $#@!load of Dec 2016 puts on SPY..... 30% delta or around 1650 SP500 strike... call it a decade

    Ya I can tell you have the experience needed to trade the markets (perhaps even make a living from it) but for anybody else (me for example, early 20's) just survivng the markets is hard enough to do. Anybody wanting to quit their day job to become a day trader needs to get ready for the raping they are going to get by the older dudes.

    Its mot an age thing, just an, "Oh I've been effed by this type of market before type of thing"..... this market is like Japan 1994-95, Asia 1997, Tech wreck 1999/2000, crash 2008/09... but cash and carry at zero rates is hard to lay off the BUY BUY BUY mentality...

    i will be wrong in small a few times then RIGHT in massive... all very soon, we think

    Good luck mate.... just remember, "The market goes UP the stairs and down the SHUTE"

    No, well yes, no, whatever

    Everything is gambling, walking across the road, driving a TT E92 M3 at 200 mph, shorting stocks, buying $#@!es diamond rings, if I am wrong I will stop out in 6 months for about a $60k loss... when I am right I will make $600k...

    It is far riskier being a drone and buying stocks after a 5 year bull market at 3 times the price the SP500 was when I started buying in 2009 when every other dolt was selling

    Canada like my home country of Australia are very commodity linked.... Copper is such a small commodity market and Canada one of it's biggest players but given the huge size of the Canadian economy, it will generally follow commodity prices (metals, oils) in general.

    Coppe prices have been seen as a LEADING economic indicator by many for years... I see Copper prices going down as an indicator USA stock prices will fall which implies a weakerUSA economy and irnocially generally stronger US$ against everything, hence weaker Loonie.

    The USA retail businesses are $#@!ed and we have really seen that in my missus and other wholesaler businesses for the last 2 months... things have just stopped

    I am very short stocks now and will stay that way

    I wil see if I can do a better CAD$ vs HG correlation with proper math when I get a chance.... on a macro broad basis the correlation seems pretty good
