The way I look at it, stuff is going to happen anyways. You might as well make a buck off it. I cannot stop the war. I don't consider it supporting
the war either. I would never buy war bonds. The fact is, it's probably one of the most predictable things you can see happening in the stock market.
I don't consider it unethical. I'm also not even going to buy an Iranian or US stock, it is going to be a Canadian one. In fact, it's not even just
a single stock, it is an index of lots of different stocks.
I also don't expect the US to go to war with Iran. At the very most, some sort of watered-down Cold War/trade war. It's just a fact that any time
there is uncertainty like this in the world, prices of commodities like oil rise.
You could actually use war to gain money for peace efforts. The irony would be delicious.
How would you feel if I donated all my profits to third world nations?
Heck, if I make enough to cover my commission costs and have enough profit left over, I'll use it to sponsor a child. How about that?
I wonder if I can sponsor a child with a ficticious name. I'll make it out to "Yarcofin" and post it up on ATS for all to see.
Because if there's one thing I like more than money, it's using money to make less fortunate people revere you as a charitable God
I also hardly would consider myself anything like the 'international bankers'. I'm only 18 for gosh sake. How much money do you think I have to put
into this LOL. This thing will make me like a weeks pay of minimum wage, max. Don't worry... I will not wipe out Etheopia... any time soon.
