A ponzi works fine as long as there is new money coming in. Greater fool theory in action.

They sent everybody home and sent them money and people are surprised that tech companies are up? People are sitting on their asses consuming mainly tech.

What happens when all the tech is used up?

We are in the Cola Wars of information right now. Tech companies are fighting for eyeball time rather than selling sugar water though.

What is this overstimulated, overfed, underperforming population good for exactly?

The relationship between price and value in the stock market has gone. That's why a lot of hedge fund managers bailed.

Survival of the fittest was long ago replaced with "bail outs of the shitest"

Stocks are up because there's too much money sloshing around with nowhere else to go.

Gold and Silver is a terrible investment because 99% of people are not buying Gold and Silver but electronic contracts representing Gold and Silver. You can't actually get the Gold and Silver you 'own' - it's just a number on a computer screen.

At the moment - it's all shit and there needs to be a massive correction to sort all this stuff out.

If you are a commodities trader...the first rule is...."Never take physical possession of the commodity."

Vanguard opposes a tax on Wall Street its founder John Bogle favored — and the reason may surprise you

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/vanguard-opposes-this-wall-street-tax-its-founder-john-bogle-favored-and-that-says-a-lot-about-mutual-funds-today-2020-09-03?mod=home-page

"But why is Vanguard, in particular, joining this cavalcade of industry giants and lobbyists who are circling their wagons against the FTT? Vanguard, as far as I know, has little or nothing to lose from this tax, unlike many other financial industry firms. Vanguard doesn’t have outside shareholders who might push it to lobby against the tax. (Vanguard, unique among financial industry firms, is organized as a non-profit and thus doesn’t have outside shareholders.) Moreover, John Bogle, Vanguard’s hugely admired late founder, favored a FTT and he would never have allowed Vanguard to promulgate such a politicized document."

As a trader(not a saver), yes it would just be added cost.

Well, everything was down big today in the markets. The good news is, it's not really your money so why worry about the day to day?  ;D
