    seeallevil, Wow, that 'acceleration problem' is right on! "Drive-by-wire" would stop me from buying that vehicle. No way do I give total control of my vehicle to a computer. Thus I drive a GMC worktruck, that I can feel assured will slow down when I take my foot off the accelerator.

    And you are so right that 'The regulators are far behind'. The .01% have seen to it that we 'retail consumers' are totally used.

    The only way that this fiat world can correct is by fixing the broken political system. And the banksters are organized to see that doesn't happen.

    Doc,

    I see you follow only one person here on SA.....

    Michael Clark, "poet, novelist, artist, historian, and market analyst". Interesting. Of the many good authors here...only one do you wish to be alerted to.

    I'll look him up. Maybe he has a favorite 'supplement'...or water source.
    Or source of truth. Even we Muppets like the truth. Actually...the truth is more important to us than....faith. The faith we once had in our government is gone... forever. That's what I like about you Doc. You seem to want to give us the unvarnished truth.

    Cheers,

    Ah, AAPL.....now supporting not only Nasdaq, but the rest of the market as well. AAPL is one of the reasons why the Vix is so tame. The Zen Steve Jobs was looking for is here. Do not bet that TVIX will rise anytime soon, giving relief to those holding that bag. Rather, I see CS reverse splitting the TVIX, and it falling further. (ala UVXY) Hey, I did call the Super Bowl... Giants 27, that other team 17. Once in a great while I get it right.

    I'll be there on Wednesday to hear you. T-bones and AAPLtini's...?

    Agreed. But it's so simple it surely will go over the heads in the government that could actually take action. Not that they would anyway because we all know that the government is run by the banks, and has been for over 30 years....or longer. "He who has the gold/fiat rules".

    So, how's the veal on Thursday....?

    Doc,

    First, i'm becoming a fan of yours. I clicked 'like' on your first comment on this thread. Yup, I have learned to slog through your posts, multiple times (for me) if necessary to glean.....stuff. I would like to say 'knowledge', but I think one would have to retain more than I do to call it that.

    So, 'The market was never intended to be accessible for layman...' or Muppets? I don't want to be a doctor, and I sure as hell don't want to be a shark. Only trading is left for me of the three you mention. That's why i read guys like you and James A. K., and Ocean Man.

    Do we independent traders add nothing to the process over machines? Or 'pros'? Is there no longer room for the retail human?

    What would you prescribe we 'poker room traders' do? I do know when to hold, and when to fold. But 'quit' ain't in my vocabulary.

    From the Dr. to the muppet...come back?
