REVISED predictions for the next 100 years. Agree? Disagree? And Why?0Mesho2012-11-06 03:17:22
I asked this many times over before, but I have rethought and revised my next 100 years predictions: here is how I see it now: -we break our unconditional embargo with Cuba and relations between US and South America improve (within next few years) -Kim Jong Il suffers fatal stroke in say, 8 years, and his successor will be slightly less insane and isolationalist. N. Korea will begin to cooperate with UN sanctions and slowly, relations between North and South Korea and Japan will get better. They will still be nuts, mind you, but the threat of N.Korea and their nuclear program to the world, especially Japan, will be reduced. Without that threat, Japan's interest in the US will slightly diminish as part of our relationship with Japan is based on their defense from Dear Leader. -Iraq settles down in terms of insurgency in next year or two, but will still flare up occasionally, much like, say, Lebanon now. -Afghanistan becomes tough struggle for next 5-10 years but eventually Taliban and Al Qaida will be permanently diminished. US will have reclaimed some international credibility and respect and there will be a small decrease in anti-americanism in Europe and Mid-East. -Japan and China compete economically, but China has internal issues. The difference in the economies of the poor, central chinese and the chinese of the industrialized cities will render China not as powerful in the global scheme as predicted by some analysts. Japan's economy expands unchecked, at the forefrunt of the the technological industry. I say this in the next 10 to 20 years. -At the same time, I predict that the next developing power will in fact be Mexico. -Relations between Russia and United States becomes more strained over issues of Iran and on nuclear proliferation. (5-10 years) -Iran covertly tries to develop nuclear (warhead) capabilities, not just civilian nuclear power. (big surprise there). This happens in next 5-10 years. - In 5-10 years or so years, Israel does what it did to Saddam and to Syria: precision (conventional) air strike on nuclear facilities, i.e enriching, processing, etc. Iran's nuclear program back to square 1. Iran vows revenge, condemns their actions, but is unable to do anything about it. Russia condemns Israel's actions, as does UN and NATO. US also condemns Israel's "rash" actions but still unconditionally supports Israel. Relations b/t Iran and Israel, degrade further, and US and Russian relationship is further strained. -In next 5 years, global economic crisis will slowly return to normal. I predict a second crisis in about 25-30 years. -Pakistan helps Iran rebuild nuclear capabilities covertly. We figure this out through our intelligence agencies and impose sanctions to no avail. (10-25 years from now.) -India also condemns Pakistan and Iran. Slowly, from 20 to 30 years from now, there is an emergence of two main powers (alliances.) 1. B/t US, Israel, UK, France (but so what about the French), India, and China (b/c of its economic interests in US). 2. Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Mexico. Cuba has become a non issue, as has North Korea, which no longer are pursuing nuclear warheads. We will end up having a smaller cold war that will last for about 15-20 years. Very scary time when it seems like Iran and Israel will commence nuclear exchange (seems inevitable). Same issue b/t US and Russia. Globe will at same time undergo a second economic crisis. Russia will be hit hard, and so will its trade partners, especially those interested in commodities, such as Japan. US will ride through and survive. The countries that survive economic crash will win the second cold war. Russian Federation will dissolve into three or four separate states. Trying to not make the same mistake twice, NATO and UN will immediately step in and help protect against further nuclear proliferation. Efforts prove to be a success. Russia becomes far less powerful. Without any real backing from Russia, whose power has greatly diminished, Iran will make a desperate move. Isolated with no real allies or supporters, Iran, if still caught up in a radical Islamic mindset like that of the Ayatollah and Ahmedinejad, will try to drop their entire, though meager,nuclear arsenal on Israeli cities such as Tel Aviv. Israel will, before the detonations, retaliate by unloading their entire arsenal on Iran, wiping it off the map, practically. Syria and Egypt and many neighboring countries of Israel will invade Israel in retaliation as of about 2075, and US will step in on their behalf. This will be Wold War III. US and Israel will fight off invaders, however, fallout and after effects of the Iranian nuke render much of Israel uninhabitable and there will be a mass exodus from Israel to the US, England, Australia, etc. Russia and Mexico will then intervene against US for helping Israel and there will be an all out war between US and Russia.[View Answers]
Am I ready to start trading futures with a live account?0Innocent2012-11-06 00:51:22
Ok, so, I've been studying trading on and off for about four years. My first attempt at trading with a live account resulted in a blow-out. It was very difficult to deal with, but I only had a $1500 margin. My second trading experience endured for about two months. I managed to defend a $2000 margin for two months until I lost $1000 and stopped trading. That was about a year and a half ago. I've now simulated for over two weeks with a $20,000 margin. I'm up in the simulator by about $1500. I have a good money management plan. I risk no more than 1% of my margin on any given trade. I've cut my losses and ridden my gains with good stop-losses and good trailing stops. I use price indicators with volume and ATR studies to enter trades. Out of the past 15 trades I've made, the market has moved in my direction 11 times. I've run the numbers. Even if I were only right 39% of the time, I would have still made 1.5% of profits to my margin. I have studied "High Probability Trading" by Marcel Link, "Trading Commodities and Financial Futures" by George Kleinman, and a half dozen other trading publications in the past four years. To any professional traders out there; how much more simulating do you think I need to do to really be ready? Am I ready now? It's actually been a little bit scary. In contrast to my past performance, I've done exceptionally good in the past two weeks, and it's been a lot easier than I ever remember. I don't want to naively enter the market thinking my system is adequate to find that I was just fooling myself. As of right now, I feel ready.[View Answers]

Whats better to trade FX with out of options, spread betting or spot trading? Whats best for UK resident?1TYRONN2012-11-04 21:51:02
Currently at the time of writing I am 18 years of age and I have been practicing stock, commodity and currency trading in several different practice accounts. What I have discovered is that I am best at currency trading and I make the most money out of trading that way. With stocks and commodities I have had moderate successes but I'm better at FX trading than anything else and I've learned a lot too. I also know that currency tends to trend long term such as a few months to a few years which is where currency options are best suited. Spot-forex trading on the other hand is traded on margin and is best suited to short term trading of the FX markets. I have only had practice trading FX in spot-forex and spread betting, both of which had a return of several hundred percent. What I would like to know is what is the best way to trade forex out of currency options, spread betting or spot FX, and which is best suited to a UK resident to gain wealth? Please help/advise. Thanks. P.S. Sorry its so long.[View Answers]

How to cover losses in commodity call selling?0maureen2012-11-04 12:46:09
I am doing this for a project in school. I sold calls back at the beginning of the school year for corn. I sold 350 Dec calls for 6.75 cents. They currently are trading well over 20 cents.

Why do people confuse socialism with state capitalism?0Linda M.2012-11-04 01:31:03
The Soviet Bloc was NOT socialist! There was no workers control of the means of production so it wasn't truly socialist, but state capitalist. In the Soviet Union, government owned the means of production, while the surplus ("profit") was distributed among an elite party bureaucracy, rather than among the workers. Also, most importantly, it was the bureaucracy[View Answers]

Why do fans put so much emphasis on "Potential" players when teams are trading for proven commodities0fallen2012-11-03 01:59:33
When hearing of teams giving up prospects you always hear people saying that they should not give up Player "X" because he "could be the next (insert HOF player here)". But the team is giving up the player for a once in a lifetime talent like say Santana or a player at the top of their game like Sabathia. I always look at it that I would rather have a prvoen player over a "potential" guy. Look at the history of players that are "for sure HOF" when coming into the league...JD Drew, Gregg Jefferies, Jason Isrighausen, Bill Pulsipher...the list goes on and on![View Answers]
