just don't buy gm, or ford, or chrysler, or any stock listed on wall street and you will be good.

you know what the best idea is? Shove the money under a mattress so when the world markets crash you won't lose any of it.

honestly, I think the whole rags to riches thing with day trading is long past. Don't waste your time with it.

Well, you need to at least put it into something that will make enough interest to keep up with inflation. Otherwise, you're essentially losing money.

Very true. But what out there anymore is safe that keeps up with inflation?

I personally throw money into an IRA because it seems to me that is the best option anymore. I don't believe an IRA will keep up with inflation ... but it is safe. The money I have in there today will be the same amount of money I have in there in a few months, which I guess is part of the issue you are getting at because I am not earning much on it.

I've seen too many people lose their retirement because their 401k dropped 50% when the company went down the drain or the markets too a dive, so those are out.

you're talking about company shares, i'm talking trading currencies, its the only tool not affected by the crisis.

true, its just like gambling in a ****** and the odds are highly against me (because of the no easy money law), but i've heard of people earning like 100,000's of dollars per day,

[edit] to be fair, they win 100k first day, lose 50k the next [/edit]

and you dont have to invest 400k to get it and risk your mortgage on the next company to go bankrupt, i dont know... its very tempting

The value of the dollar has tanked against just about every currency in the world. Those other currencies have taken a hit too, just not as bad.

Nothing is recession proof.

Yea, not a whole lot keeps up with inflation .

I can't tell you how many times I have almost canned this thread because of the title ....

Makes me think I am smelling spam.

Was that your intention all along Kingo'?

if i was a spammer, wouldn't you think i'd have done this a long time ago?

besides, seeing how dumb are 99% of the ads here (just a bunch of keywords and not really trying to sell something), it will not be profitable for me, i realise the power you have and respect it, like you respect me

ok, so i forget a few apostrophes here and there and have occasional typos, but you gotta remember i'm not an american, and i cant be bothered looking for the right spelling for every fuckin' word i type, ok?

my only consolidation is that there are natives who can't even read their own language, or can poorly write it.

my weak point with english is not spelling and elementry school shit, but more about expressing myself and using the right words in an understandable syntax, that's why i copy alot of phrases from people and badly implement them so i sound more retarded than what i expected.

at least respect me for trying to even converse with this, you try to learn a new language and write essay long posts to people who dont give a shit to what you're saying.

I have a better idea, give me your money. Your outcome will be the same either way but at least this way someone you know will have benefited from you loosing your money rather then a large corporation that has received TARP money (I've already given them enough for all of us).

Yep. The word you were looking for is consolation.

Be careful, our urban grannies are mean. You can either get stabbed with a 6" hat pin, maced or shot. You're better off robbing nerds, just make sure they aren't taking granny out for lunch.

It looks like my sarcasm is lost on you. In that case you should take all your money and let it ride on the *****, you will be rich in no time!!! I heard the Zimbabwe dollar is a great investment right now!

Good luck.

i have been such an ass, haven't i?

plus, i'm a big grammar nazi i'm surprised i used consolidation, i literally facepalmed, wow.

that's what you get for having no social skills and no sense of sarcasm and wit.

i was a mess back then, really depressed, i'm not that aggressive now, but i'm not sure if i had the chance to do this again, would i have been smarter really, maybe a bit less confrontational i guess

sorry for whoever suffered my idiocy and in spite still played it cool, shows true character

Catchy. I hadn't heard The Clash song that was the basis for it in decades. Brought back some nostalgia.
