Went to sign up with ET to check it out.

For verification: it's asking me a question...


A popular professional football team in the United States is called the Dallas ________.

Please answer the question...



Obvious sign the site is not for me. WTH are Dallas ???? and who cares for US football? I'm sure some bright spark admin thinks that's a real cool question but it is about as dumb as it gets. (n)


Not my cup of tea. Stick to T2W for best crowd discussion on trading. (y)

... and other more relaxed debates and stuff too :cool:

Just stick to the zoo :LOL:

Timsk said it best...

When volatility dies down so does the conversation. Other forums since the thread started Forex Factory and Futures.io (formerly BMT). Also almost every broker has their own forums. If a guy gets banned on these forums he can just start his own Twitter feed and traders use other social medias.

And there are just so many topics, most of them are already covered to death...

In short, the forum marketplace is over saturated...

Well you won't find a "grumpy old gits" thread or a "toyz for the boyz" thread. ET may have more prima donnas, but the users here are anti-capitalist and socialist. Maybe that is a location specific quality. T2W is in Europe somewhere based upon the timestamps. ET is in the US. Vive the capitalism. :clap:

Some may be but that is not the case for most in my view and in any case trading is capitalist by its nature.
hhiusa appears to have his own extreme definition for capitalism and socialism in which a true capitalist is completely devoid of any social conscience whatsoever. S/he only cares about numero uno and doesn't give a monkey's toss for anyone else. Ever! Fortunately, he is in a minority of one (here on T2W anyway), as there are many members who regard themselves as capitalists, have right wing views and always vote Tory etc. but, critically, they also have compassion and understand that there are others less fortunate than themselves who - through no fault of their own (e.g. refugees from Syria) need and deserve their help and support.

Yes he is One seriously misguided individual. It's not his fault entirely, as the system he operates under and is taught to accept, is unfortunately fatally flawed. More people, including the masses in the western world are coming to realise it, hence the Brexit vote and election of Trump.

A good place to start.

If the western world masses had truly realized it, they would not have voted for a supreme example of a nihilistic capitalist.

Lets face it, the vote for Trump and Brexit was was a vote against the system. These events are just stepping stones to somewhere else. Nobody knows the destination, but they do know where we have been and they don't like it.

This is where I have a problem with right wing Brexiters stating they'll increase jobs and raise wages.

Not only that, by restricting flow of labour effectively one will be giving jobs and raising the wages of the less well skilled and educated.

The numbers simply don't add up. We can do this supposedly because the EU is declining and trade with the rest of the World will be greater than what we have now. We can't show you this but you'll have to take our word in faith for it. It is true coz we tell you so with our stuck up toffy accents.

On the other side of the swamp we have pretty much the same with Trump. Pure capitalist in sheeps clothing claiming to bring jobs and wages to disenfranchised people. So same words as Brexiters pretty much kick out the Mexicans and hey presto more jobs for US upright citizens.

However, slightly in contrast he aims to do this by coming out of free trade areas and restricting imports and putting US first in negotiating tougher agreements. One can only imagine because some dork put US second in previous administrations.


The mind boggles with what our leaders can say and what the electorate will believe.

Except more people voted against Trump, so FOR the system, by your logic. :)

Probably same for Brexit, they just didn't show up because it seemed to be a done deal. But we are getting way off topic....

True, but the "system" was the wrong target. But as most people don't know history, much less learn from it, we have to go through this again.
