    EG pays a salary, right? So if I could have been an EG player that's demonstrable lost wages.

    you sound like me in 2014 when I thought the junk bond market was going to collapse LOL. Never happened and I got raped.

    here's what I learned, fundamentals might look like shit and they probably are, and the future looks bleak because it is, but trying to pinpoint when everyone else wakes up and realizes it is another story. The markets' liquidity is less based on the fundamentals and more based on 'environment' or how the air feels so to speak.

    Basically, it's not a bear market until everyone looks around and says 'we're in a fucking bear market' even if people are screaming that the markets will crash tomorrow, until you actually see the market crash then don't bother trying to call it.

    I thought QE was going to lead to the collapse of the dollar in 2012, then I saw the dollar's valuation grow higher and higher, it made me scratch my chin and think to myself that I have no fucking clue how anything works anymore lol.

    yea, you can be like me and sit around for 5 years thinking the market is going to crash, because it eventually does, or just follow the sheep and ride with the herd to the top of the mountain before it collapses.

    If only you had factored the mass media sheeple and false flags into your portfolio, you'd probably be a multimillionaire

    Your thinking was wrong because QE beefs up bank reserves, not M2. Bank reserves aren't money!

    We've seen massive asset inflation but no CPI growth largely thanks to Amazon (and income inequality). Your typical Starbucks barista isn't going to buy a $900K house in the Bay Area or New York, lmao.

    I believe the true winners in any scenario are the brokerages. I had to pay $50 (first and last mistake I'll ever make) recently to buy a OTC stock since emerging markets are the only places left with good fundamentals. I'd rather buy a fucking Russian stock with low PE at this point rather than a blue-chip like HD/Visa that can take a nosedive any day.

    All this clusterfuck is exacerbated by HFT (high frequency trading) so there's pretty much no way your fingers are going to be nimbler than algorithms.


    Please tell me how to start a brokerage or hedge fund, and what message would lure the masses. If the "buy gold coz hyperinflation" crowd managed to seduce billions of dollars from suckers back in 2010 (gold bugs didn't understand difference between money and money reserves, swagyolo XD), I'm sure there's no way I can somehow manage worse portfolio performance over a 5-10 year period.

    Scoop up stocks in Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, etc. I'm sure there are great opportunities there. (No joke) Dearth of research is the greatest barrier, since 99% of "analysts" don't cover them.

    Speaking of which, "professional financial analyst" is a euphemism for "fraudster."
