WalMart is under 50 dollars now. Their 52 week low is like 46.25...That didn't rally at all.

P&F charts agree, coincidentally its the same exact expectation that I had (59)

When it seems the worst, it is prob. the best

USD 76.186 off the low of 76.151 :shk:



Gold hits all-time high
money.cnn.com...

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Gold prices settled at an all-time high Wednesday as the dollar slumped and inflation concerns boosted demand for the metal as a hedge against rising prices.

Gold for December delivery jumped $13.90 to close at a record high of $1,020.20 an ounce, well above the previous high of $1,003.20 that was posted March 18, 2008.

The dollar fell to a one-year low against a basket of currencies, as upbeat economic data boosted optimism about the global economic recovery and gave investors an appetite for more risky assets, such as stocks.

You would not be enjoying this market if you actually went long on the US dollar at 77.20 monday morning! A FOREX dollar play at 8X leverage could ruin someones day.

I got out of FAZ $600 richer than I would have if I had sold at the end of the day so I feel like the bear that Elmer Fudd chased out of the forest with his blunderbuss. Hey, at least we get to live and trade another day.

yikes! lucky you got out when you did

after yesterdays action I knew to go the other way as well..

I still think we have some more in store to go up, and I guess that means a weaker $ as well..

I wish I had seen this thread before! A little while back, I thought I would have a go at Contract For Difference trading (CFDs), so I deposited £1,000 with CityIndex and pressed the wrong buttons - seriously - and lost £1,000 in 24 hours flat on a downward FTSE!

Losing the £1,000 was upsetting and frustrating, but what was really disappointing is that CityIndex offers loads of free airmiles to new customers as enticement, and when I enquired how many airmiles I'd earnt they said none! (Even though it said 150 free airmiles with your first trades).

That sounds similar to our U.S. index futures. Highly leveraged product derived from the price movements on the stock index, and you don't actually own anything. If you can pick the correct direction you make money really quickly though. And the other way around as you found out.

I bet the company's offer of airline miles was only good after you completed a certain number of trades, and you only got off one shot before all was lost. It all sounds like a typical derivatives transaction. The little guy got screwed repeatedly.

But I say don't give up, fall back, study some more. I lost so much before learning a little. Trading remains the best way to make money if you can't do porn.

Although to add to this, I have only met 1 successful trader of currencies (my uncle), but like my dad, they are mathematical geniuses... so I guess that makes sense somehow... but really if you are playing games, and not during peak trading hours you would prob. be blown up within 20 minutes haha

Oh i see now, he was playing index futures

You are just one of the 99% that will successfully never come out alive trading your first deposit in futures

Dont worry about it too much, try playing SPY or something in the short term if you are familiar

I like trading currencies. And yeah...you can lose all your money very quickly in forex trading which is why you put tight stops and don't put all your money on black! (or red...hmmm)

Yeah, instead of doing index futures...do options on SPY or QQQQ or what not. I trade spy sometimes, it is one of the few decent etfs that is out there...

What's does that head shaking mean?
You know the realities behind currency fluctuations are quite different than it's presented by third-tier bloggers.


The dollar slumped to a one-year low against major currencies on Wednesday as a recovery in the global economy encouraged investors to look for higher-returning assets.

The euro rallied to a nine-month high, a move analysts said reflected the view investors shunned the dollar as a safe haven.

www.cnbc.com...

Do you know that the dollar was a "safe heaven" for many folks with lots of money to watch over during the financial unrest -- during the time when the Amero was a favorite alternative currency to USD to out-of-the-reality stricken folks who infest the web with madness?

There is nothing wrong with USD going back to the place where it belongs and came from.

With the dollar?

Keep walking, Hex. I think you need to take that Forex dollar someplace else:

Much better now!

Yep.

But maybe the dollar makes comeback and becomes STRONG again, and then . . .

Sorry, Hex. Sometimes I don't see the dire consequences of the weak dollar.

Cheaper Prices??? Where??

www.reuters.com...


U.S. consumer prices rose in August from July on a spike in gasoline costs, the Labor Department said on Wednesday, but the underlying trend pointed to muted inflation pressures.
Analysts said the risk of inflation remained low as the economy crawled out of its worst recession in 70 years.

The Consumer Price Index rose 0.4 percent last month after having been flat in July, a touch above market expectations for a 0.3 percent gain.

Gasoline prices surged 9.1 percent after falling 0.8 percent in July. Compared to the same period last year, consumer prices declined 1.5 percent. Prices have been falling on an annual basis since March this year.

You guys do know that the US dollar is going down the drain because the government is devaluing it? If the government decided to, they could fully support the dollar, which would crash markets and the dollar would have the rally of the century.

I would take .30 off of the DXY all day long, every day, for 100+ points on the DOW.

Think about the $ you can make off of futures contracts and options?

Now, when will this exactly happen is the harder part to take advantage.
