Did you not read what I wrote? Volatility can be a good thing for trading, and trading making money by selling contracts at a premium to people who've lost their asses can be very gratifying. Just read my post again and think about it for a minute.

You seem pretty confident in your predictions, if you really are then you'd be a fool to get up and go shovel shit when you could be putting money away while playing video games and watching CNBC.

Also on a side note, I saw Sepultura once, they came with Ozzy and Type O Negative. Good show. Sometime in the 90's. Then another time I spent New Year's at a death metal dive bar in Brooklyn and one of the guys from Type O Negative was there along with a bunch of other "famous" heavy metal dudes. Crazy shit.

There is simply no way for the common man to make any money in today's market casino as it has made sure to price out anybody that doesn't have a lot of money to begin with. I know this because years ago I looked into doing what you're suggesting here.

If there was a way to make money off of my predictions believe me I would of already be doing so.

If it was so easy to make money in the stock market like you're suggesting that it is everybody would be doing it and nobody would work at all.

I just told you how. If you think that the S&P is going to drop again in the next week, then throw what you can into the short options on QQQ and take the money when it happens. If it doesn't, then you may lose what you put in, but I think it's safe to say that you'll see some volatility there on the short term and there's enough volume in the shares to where someone surely will be hitting you up for those contracts. You wont make an exponential profit, because it's pretty obvious to everyone that the volatility is there so the options won't be pennies on the dollar, but you'll make something.

The market doesn't know if you're a common man or not. It just knows how much things are trading for at current in real time. You're saying that there's no way to make money...an entire class of society disagrees.

What are you going to when everything collapses where you go to the front counter and there is nobody there manning the station to give you any returns on your investments? What then Mr. R. ?

It's all online. Trades aren't executed by people. Also, I think a better question is, "what are you going to do when your knees and back hurt too much for you to work for long enough to make rent and feed yourself? The likelihood of someone struggling financially in their old age is significantly greater than that of the whole world economy crashing and humanity existing in a dust bowl of poverty.

Do you really think that it's impossible to do something to take care of yourself in the future? Like you really think that there's no way whatsoever?

Some old people eat cat food and wrap up in a lot of blankets in the wintertime and freeze to death and shit. Others have central heat and young nurses and painkillers.

Today's word is vindication in that I feel vindicated after this week's events. I've warned people many years that this day would come and now it seems to have finally arrived.

I was called crazy, a crank, and nutter by most as nobody would listen to me yet here we are now. For sixteen years I've consistently tried to tell people what will happen and I was ignored every time. Well, who's laughing now? :lol:

The problem with recessions, crashes and depressions is that they can become catalysts to ignite large scaly mystery and death, where not only evil people die, but innocents and children. The Great Depression in a sense had a very nasty consequence, at least WW2 contributed to the solution for saving Capitalism. Industries geared up, employment sharply normalized and society on the whole became normalized with increasingly up beat attitudes. Mass projection of civilians became used toward the slaughter-sacrifice of their young men, leaving civilian males, usually of second rate non alpha left overs to be able to compete in a lesser field for an abundance of females working in factories, able to support them. Women , left behind, often widowed by the slaughter of their fighting men abroad, were willing to settle for less, sometimes far less then what they would ordinarily settle for.

The vagaries of recessions have similar consequences as the real estate bubble's collapse bore out.Literally hundreds of suicides and thousands of. non functional people and families became trapped in the waning capacities of the helping institutions of the United States.

Lets hope the market recovers and things will normalize.

Historically, yes, cataclysm usually produces change, short term maybe appealing bit long term- devastating. Look it the French Revolution - lead to a democracy which is dying as we see

Now to share a personal story, last year I was charged $217.00 for not having health insurance which I cannot afford either on the state, federal, or corporate employer level. I did my taxes today and because of the last holdouts of the healthcare provisions by Obama I was fined $695.00 for not having health insurance this year where I am only going to receive $503.00 back and that's after I payed $9500.00 or more in taxes last year with an income of only $18,000.00 a year. Fuck this country! Let this country burn to the ground for all I care!

Whose idea was it to fine people money who can't afford health insurance?! Fuck all of you!

Then they want to legalize 800,000 dreamers who will largely receive free healthcare, education, food, and housing?! Burn this fucking government down to the ground, set it on a blaze of fire! I hope this stock market collapses and wipes everybody out! You fucking lunatics!

While I don't really like Donald Trump as I am a critic of him on many levels I might just vote for him in the next election anyways just on taxes alone (keeping them low and getting rid of Obama mandatory penalties) assuming the country doesn't collapse before then, motherfuck! What a giant shitshow!

Today I just got butt-fucked by the United States federal government without any lube!
