I’ve read multiple stories about Herbalife and Bill Ackman’s 1 billion USD shorting of the stock. Bill Ackman claims that Herbalife is in fact a Pyramid Scheme, which in some way was verified by the FTC when they fined Herbalife with the total sum of $200 million. Herbalife has been restructuring its operations to comply with the FTC ruling and can no longer promise “sport cars and jets” to its customers or “business operators”. Herbalife is a company I despise, and I can not understand how a company like that can be a viable business.
I was going to open a short position on the Herbalife stock as it’s close to its ATH (80 USD per share). Unfortunately for me, and you, there are no more short positions available for the stock as more than 1.8 billion USD are shorting the stock. I cried for a moment. But hey, maybe the stock rises to $120 and I’ll be glad I didn’t enter.
On the other hand, I looked into the sharp drop of gold today. We have a buy recommendation of gold, and I feel that the price is just right for me to enter again. I’ve bought gold for $10 000 as a CFD, and I’m going all in (either doubling the investment or losing it all). Of course, I added a guaranteed stop loss at $1234, and take profit at $1254. I entered at $1244. This trade will most likely take some days, or weeks, but I’ll keep you posted if I’m successful or if I just burned $10 000. Wish me good luck right?
Remember: I’m able to afford a loss of $10,000. Only trade with money you are certain you can lose.
Total Mindfuck or Nirvana: Our Imaginary Phenomenon
I love to read good books that can increase my level of understanding. I’m now reading Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari. A truly mind-altering book that confirms many of my own beliefs (unfortunately?) and that just gave me more respect for Steve Job (see video below)
Steve Jobs and Yuval Noah Harari are my “gods”. Everything that you see around yourself is made by man. It’s either political systems, values, human rights, the monetary system, religion or even news. As Harari explains, humans can only work in a group that is no larger than 150 people. We do not have the capacity to live in a larger group before things start to unravel. That’s why we all lived in small groups for the most of our history. Homo Sapiens evolved from other ape-like species 150 000 years ago. For 70 000 years ago we entered into a cognitive revolution that made us able to communicate and be creative, to create tools that helped us conquer the world (and kill off the Neanderthals). It’s only 12 000 years ago since we moved from foreaging to farming, where we gradually gathered together in larger groups and started to create imaginary systems to control the population. Our predecessors also had imaginary beliefs, like religion, but not the extensive systems we now see today. Religion was one of the core systems that made us able to find a common goal and live together in larger groups.
The code of Hammurabi is one of the oldest “code of conduct” that is known, dating back to 1754 years BC:
It is one of the oldest deciphered writings of significant length in the world. The sixth Babylonian king, Hammurabi, enacted the code, and partial copies exist on a seven and a half foot stone stele and consists of 282 laws, with scaled punishments, adjusting “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” (lex talionis) as graded depending on social status, of slave versus free man or woman.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
All laws, all religions, all politics have been created to manipulate and control our inherent DNA. We would not be able to “thrive” the way we do now in larger groups without it. One could argue that we were happier before we started to gather in larger groups (cities). But mankind would not have evolved without it.
We are all tied up to what Harari explains as “Prison Walls”. The objective phenomenon exists independent of human’s consciousness and beliefs. Radioactivity is harmful for people. That’s a fact. A subjective phenomenon is something that exists depending of a single mind’s belief and consciousness. It can disappear or change over time. E.g. I believe that a pink elephant will come and save us all within ten years. This might change if I start to believe in something else or die. The intersubjective phenomenon is something that exists in our network of communication which connects individual subjective consciousness. If one individual die, the intersubjective phenomenon (Christianity or Islam) will not disappear. However, if everyone within the network changed their mind or died, the intersubjective phenomenon would change or disappear.
Why am I writing this post? I think it’s important that you know that everything we do is created by people, for people (or the elite). The monetary system is no different. It was created to control the economic growth and position of a few people, companies or nations. Everything can be changed if enough people start to believe in something else. Cryptocurrencies could be such a shift that might change our monetary system.
Remember, you are free. Do whatever you want, don’t be restrained to people that lived on this planet for hundreds or thousands of years ago. They didn’t know what you do now.
Maybe our true goal as human kind is to reach singularity and relieve ourselves from human restraints.
My first experience with Robot Trading: Up $5 000 in Two Weeks
Since I’m pressed on time with multiple obligations (job, familiy, hacked.com, CCN, MoneyMakers) I decided for a couple of weeks ago to look into robot trading. I wanted to find one or multiple robots to do the trading for me. I ended up with downloading MetaTrader 5 and buying two different robots from their marketplace. I started with 16 000 USD on the trading account, and after two weeks the robots have made me $5 000.
That’s a whopping 31% increase within 2 weeks…!
My robots usually trade during the night, and I’ve decided to completely trust them. The 16 000 USD is a sum I’m more than happy to lose if I can learn anything from dealing with trading robots.
When that is said, MetaTrader’s interface really “SUCKS”. It’s so bad, I can’t understand why MetaTrader is considered the best trading terminal for robots. Maybe that’s a good business idea for someone out there? Disrupt MetaTrader.
So, which robots do I use?
I do not want to disclose that just yet, I need to test my robots rigorously before I can recommend any of them. And if this is a money making machine, we can laugh all the way to the bank.
Have a good weekend.
