Prevara Forex grupe (Forex signali)

prvo, namerno ne kacim na finansije jer mislim da je bitna tema ovako
Ovo pisem em kao upozorenje na neki nacin, em za diskusiju.
Znaci, svi mi znamo za prevaru sportskih dojava. 'Ee buraz imam dojavu za namestenu utakmicu sveeeeee garant prolazi 100% samo mi daj 5 soma'.
Mada to nije tema danas. Danas zelim da pomenem tzv. Forex Grupe, koje prodaju servis za forex trejding, u glavnom 'analitike' ili 'signale'.
Sta je forex? Forex, znaci foreign exchange, je trziste valute. Tu mozete da trugjete valutama, kao na primer u menjacnici, ili da se kladite na kurs preko CFD ugovora, kao ovi 'forex experti' sa instagrama. Naravno, teoretski moze da se zaradi dosta, ali vecina spekulatora gubi pare. Ovaj klip objasni forex skroz ok. i dosta je lik spomenuo o ovoj prevari. Jedino sto se ne cuje bas lepo, ali sustinski je sve ok.
U cemu je fora?
Provajderi za te forex signale, najpopularniji u Srbiji je Lule, Luka Bijelovic, (@lulepljugica) vole da prikazuju sve od skupih auta, do lepih devojaka, puno novcanica i mnogo toga sto prosecan covek zeli. Sada, koliko toga je stvarno istinito prikazano, odluclite sami.
Oni guraju ljude, koji su cesto maloletni, a nemaju obrazovanje i znanje za forex spekulaciju, na veoma rizicnu spekulaciju. Pritom nisu prijavljeni, ne placaju poreze, sve je veoma 'fishy'.
Sada, zato ti signali nisu u redu? Investopedia ima stranicu o tome. U kratko, statistike kazu da veliki broj ljudi (negde oko 90%) gubi pare na forexu. Znaci niko ne moze reci sta ce da se desi sa kursom. Ni ja, ni ti, ni banke.
Ja iskreno mislim da je ovo veoma problematicno, i da drzava mora nesto da uradi.
Sta mislite o ovome?
Jel znate nekoga sto je pao na ovako nesto?
Jel poznajete nekoga iz te price?

DeFi: como escapar del peso (y de la AFIP). Capítulo 1

Capítulo 1: Introducción
Disclaimer: la siguiente guía es una repaso general del movimiento DeFi (Decentralized Finance / Finanzas Descentralizadas), sus servicios y posibilidades. De ninguna manera representa una sugerencia financiera o de inversión. Todos los servicios de los cuáles se habla presentan riesgos tanto financieros como técnicos, y cada uno deberá hacer su propia investigación antes de decidir usarlos.
No estoy asociado a ninguno de los servicios que se mencionan, no hay referral links y no obtengo ninguna ganancia de nada de lo que se habla en este texto
Cubrir todos los temas acá tratados de manera exhaustiva sería una tarea imposible, por lo que el objetivo es dar a conocer los principios básicos de todo el sistema, para que luego cada uno profundice en lo que más le interesa. Tampoco pretende ser un tutorial paso a paso de ninguno de los servicios mencionados

Lo básico
DeFi se refiere a todos los servicios que permiten el manejo de inversiones de manera descentralizada, es decir sin un tercero (banco, broker) que maneje los fondos o los activos. En su gran mayoría va a depender de la red Ethereum, que mediante sus smart contracts va a permitir no sólo manejarse con stablecoins (DAI, USDC) sino intercambiar activos, prestar plata o tomar créditos. Las principales ventajas de manejarse de esta manera son las siguientes:
La motivación de esta guía es ayudar a cuanta gente sea posible a escapar del ridículo corralito financiero argentino. Vivimos en un país en el que ahorrar es muy difícil e invertir con rentabilidad una odisea casi imposible. El sistema esta roto: trabas, regulaciones, cambios de reglas permanentes, inflación, impuestos en cada paso hacen que resguardar y hacer crecer el dinero que uno obtuvo sea, en mi experiencia, casi imposible.
Comencemos.

Stablecoins. La base de todo.
A grandes rasgos un stablecoin es una criptomoneda atada al valor de una moneda fiat, en general el dólar (aunque puede ser al EUR, GBP, CNY, etc.). Posicionarse en un stablecoin es el primer paso para entrar al mundo DeFi y escapar del peso. Con sólo convertir los pesos o dólares físicos a un stablecoin uno ya comienza a disfrutar de todas las ventajas de este sistema: digitalización, seguridad, transparencia, no-fricción, salida del sistema, entre otros, mientras evita la principal desventaja de las crypto, la volatilidad. Como convertir mis papelitos de colores a un stablecoin? Puede ser a través de un exchange local (Satoshi Tango, Buen Bit, Ripio) o, mejor aún, en una transacción personal. Dicho en criollo: en "una cueva" donde manejen crypto. De esta manera uno se asegura ya arrancar todo el proceso de manera privada y sin terceras partes en el medio. Cómo conseguir una cueva donde me cambien? Preguntar, pedir referencias, buscar. Hay muchos grupos en varias redes sociales de Bitcoin y crypto en general donde se puede empezar la averiguación. También se puede averiguar en "cuevas tradicionales". Se lo dejo a cada uno.
Si uno ya tiene Ethereum u otras cryptos, el pase es mucho más simple: puede hacerlo en un DEX (Decentralized Exchange) o en cualquier servicio online de intercambio de criptoactivos
Existen muchas stablecoins, con diferentes características, algunas mas descentralizadas y otras menos, pero acá vamos a hablar de dos: USDC y DAI.
USDC
El USDC (USD Coin) es una proyecto de las empresas Coinbase y Circle de USA, que crearon un ERC20 Token en Ethereum donde cada 1 USDC que se emite esta respaldado por 1 USD físico en posesión de estas empresas. De esa manera aseguran la cotización 1 a 1, ya que en sus plataformas pueden ser redimibles por dólares reales. Esto trae algún riesgo adicional: más allá de basarse en una red abierta (Ethereum), los términos y condiciones de la moneda hablan de que podrían bloquear transacciones si se utilizan para fines ilícitos.
DAI
A diferencia del USDC, el DAI está respaldado por otras cryptos, haciéndolo de esta manera totalmente descentralizado (ya que no depende de ninguna empresa u organismo) y más seguro y transparente. La relación de cotización con el dólar se logra con "política monetaria" votada por la comunidad, a través de la tasa de interés que se define para crear o prestar DAI. El respaldo (o collateral, como le llaman en el sistema) es como decía arriba otras cryptos, actualmente ETH, BAT, USDC y WBTC. Cada DAI emitido esta respaldado (de manera descentralizada via smart contracts) por esas cryptos en un 150%: es decir que 1DAI tiene respaldo por el equivalente a 1.5USD en ETH, BAT, USDC o WBTC.
Ok. Y ahora?
Ahora ya tenemos el primer paso, no menor, dado. Estar posicionado en un stablecoin en vez de en dinero físico o en un banco da una sensación de libertad, seguridad e independencia difícil de explicar. Ahora si, cada uno podrá hacer lo que quiera con sus USD sin andar pidiendo permiso ni dando explicaciones a nadie. Podés guardarlo, enviarlo a la otra punta del mundo o invertirlo, a tu manera y según tus propias reglas.
Y todo esto sin la volatilidad habitual de Bitcoin, Ethereum u otras cryptos. Tus USDC o DAI siempre van a valer lo mismo: 1/1USD.
Para quien nunca haya operado en crypto, la recomendación general es ir metiéndose de a poco, con montos que signifiquen poca plata para esa persona, para ir probando el sistema. Es un mundo completamente nuevo, con conceptos nuevos que se deben aprender y cierta complejidad técnica. Una vez superado este paso, el siguiente es la inversión. No vamos a tocar acá la inversión en Cryptos como por ejemplo comprar Bitcoin, Ethereum o cualquier otra altcoin. El objetivo de esta guía es dar a conocer el equivalente (o lo más cercano posible) a las inversiones tradicionales en el mundo crypto.
Cuando hablo de inversiones me refiero a la **búsqueda de un retorno en dólares**. Estar posicionado en USD (mediante USDC y DAI) no es una inversión en si misma sino simplemente el punto de partida, ya que no tiene un rendimiento, a menos que se mida contra el ARS, que no debería ser siquiera considerado moneda.
Que opciones de inversión existen entonces? Vamos a hablar de dos: Lending y Derivatives

Part II - 10 Minute/Day Trading Strategy

Part II - 10 Minute/Day Trading Strategy
Access Part I here: https://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/h0iwbu/part_i_my_10_minuteday_trading_strategy/
Welcome to Part II of this ongoing series. How many parts will there be? No idea. At least 4-5, I guess. I'd rather have this broken down into digestible chunks than just fire hose you with information.
Part I was really just a primer. If I'm using the whole baking a cake analogy, then in Part I we covered what kind of cake we're baking. I will not cover in this post where we look for entries and exits, that's coming next. Part II is going to cover what ingredients we need and why we need those ingredients in greater detail.
What Kind Of Strategy Is This Again?It's my 10 minutes per day, trading strategy. I think the beauty of this strategy is that it allows you to take a good number of trader per week without having to commit an inordinate amount of time to the screens. This is both a mean reversion and trend-continuation based strategy. It is dead simple to learn and apply. I'd expect a 10 year old to be able to make money with this.
The List Of Ingredients & Why We Use These Particular Ingredients
*I will have an image at the end of the post showing a textbook long and short setup*
Bollinger Bands: Bollinger Bands (BB) have a base line (standard is the 20SMA, which is also what we will use for this strategy) and two other trend lines (known as the upper Bollinger band [UBB] and lower Bollinger band [LBB]) plotted 2 standard deviations away from the 20SMA. The idea behind BB is deviously simple - the vast majority of price action, approx. 90%, takes place in between the two bands. In other words, when price trades off the UBB or LBB, you could consider prices to be overbought/oversold. However, just because something is OVERbought does NOT mean its run is OVER. Therefore we need additional tools to make sure we are using the BB as effectively as possible. TLDR: BB help contextualize where to look for our technical setups using this strategy. Finding the candle/bar pattern is not enough. We need to make sure the setup is in the 'right' part of the chart. We accomplish that using the BB.
Stochastic Oscillator: The Stochastic Oscillator (Stochs) is a secondary momentum indicator. Because it is an oscillator that means the signals it generates are range-bound between 0 and 100. There are tons of momentum indicators out there. Theoretically you could swap out the Stochs for RSI or MACD. My hunch is that you won't see a measurable statistical difference in performance if you do. So why Stochs? Because I like the fact you have the %K and %D lines (you can think of them as moving averages) and the fact that the %K and %D lines crossover is a helpful visual aid. Like any other momentum indicator, the Stochs will generate overbought and oversold signals. We use the Stochs to help back up what the BB are telling us. If price is trading at, or even broken out of, the UBB and Stochs are also veeeery overbought that can be potentially useful information. It doesn't mean we have a trade necessarily, but it is a helpful piece of data.
Fibonacci Retracement & Extension Tool: This tool is OPTIONAL. The only reason I use this tool for this strategy is to integrate a mechanistic means of entry and exit. In other words, we can use fibonacci levels to place limit orders for entry and profit taking, and a stop order to get us out for our pre-defined risk allocation to each particular trade. If you DON'T want to use the fibs, that is perfectly okay. It just means you will add a more discretionary layer to this strategy
Candlestick/Bar Patterns: There isn't a whole lot to say here. We look for ONE formation over, and over, and over again. An indecision bar (small body, doesn't close on its highs or lows) followed by the setup bar which is an outside bar or an engulfing bar. It doesn't particularly matter if the setup bar is an engulfing bar or outside bar. What matters is that for a long trade the setup bar makes a HIGHER HIGH and has a HIGHER CLOSE relative to the indecision bar. The opposite for a short trade setup. The bar formation is what ultimately serves as the trigger for placing orders to take a trade.
*MOVING ON* Now We Get Into The Setup Itself:There are 3 places where we look for trades using this strategy:
  1. Short off the UBB (Here we want to see Stochastics overbought and crossing down. Bearish divergence is even better)
  2. Long off the LBB (Here we want to see Stochastics oversold and crossing up. Bullish divergence is even better)
  3. Long/Short off the Middle Bollinger Band (Here if you are looking for a short trade off the MBB you ideally want Stochs overbought. Vice versa for a long trade. NOTE: Often when taking trades off the MBB, Stochs WON'T go overbought/oversold. Because this doesn't happen often, I don't let it stop me from taking trades off the MBB.)
The actual setup is very simple and straightforward. We look for our candle/bar formation in conjunction with points 1 through 3 from the above.
There will be other nuances I will cover in terms of how to make the strategy more effective in Part 3. For example, I will go into much more detail about how the shape of the BB can tell us a lot about whether a currency pair is likely to reverse or not. I will also cover how to gauge the strength of the setup candle and a few other tips and tricks.
Technical Nuances: You can overlay a lot of other traditional technical analysis on top of the above. For example you can look for short trades off the UBB in conjunction with a prior broken support level that you now expect to be working overhead resistance. If you want to go further and deeper, of course you can. Note: the above is about as far as I went when overlaying other kinds of analysis onto this strategy. I like to keep it simple, stupid.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

From Wikipedia: "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is a partly autobiographical book written by John Perkins) published in 2004. It provides Perkins' account of his career with engineering consulting firm Chas. T. Main in Boston. According to Perkins, his job at Main was to convince leaders of underdeveloped countries to accept substantial development loans for large construction and engineering projects that would primarily help the richest families and local elites, rather than the poor, while making sure that these projects were contracted to U.S. companies. Later these loans would give the U.S. political influence and access to natural resources for U.S. companies. He characterizes his role as being an 'economic hit man.'"
https://www.amazon.com/Confessions-Economic-Hit-John-Perkins/dp/0452287081
This is an excellent introduction to the basics of how the current system is a contrived scam to control countries and their resources. This scam is so good, it allowed the U.S. to accumulate great power and wealth. The Chinese are emulating this pattern as well. I will try to write more on this in the future to tie more things together, but this is a good primer on how economic interactions between countries are just another form of warfare which exist in prelude to actual, kinetic war. It ties together with the Petrodollar scheme and Brzezinski's Grand Chessboard theory. Buy Perkin's book and read it if you haven't.

Just how did the British steal from India. A brief explanation of the systems and flows of the Raj that allowed the loot

Many big numbers and statements are thrown around, "the British looted $75tn", "the British stole from India" and so on and so forth, the question though is, how was this actually done? The below is a very brief primer on how the British exploited India.
The short answer is brutally simple and effective.
Suck out raw materials from India, make it a captive market for finished British goods
But the question is then, how will a bankrupt India pay for the British imports? And that's where we come across the first set of complications and the start of the web of British trade with London in the centre.
The triangle
To allow Indian markets the ability to consume British products, you first need to generate some form of income.
Enter China and the Opium wars.
A brief on the Opium wars though as it is largely unknown to most people. One way the EIC funded it's expansionist wars in India in the 1750's was by illegally exporting Opium from India into China. By the late 1770's it was Illegally exporting some 300,000 KG of Indian Opium into China. To put things into context Escobar used to smuggle about 1,00,000 kg of cocaine every year into the USA. The EIC smuggled in 3 times that much and we are just beginning b
The Chinese protested, ofc they did. They raided ships carrying cocaine, imposed laws banning it's usage, but the EIC protested to the British govt strongly it's rights to smuggle Opium and things continued.
By 1830 the British (and Americans now) were smuggling some 2.3mn tonnes of Opium every year. That is 23 times what Escobar managed.
Apologists to British war crimes can't even argue that this was all illegal as the full support of the British govt was behind this. Even a direct letter to Queen Victoria, pleading for the British to stop this trade fellow deaf years.
All the cocaine then used to be shipped to Canton (it was a free port under control by the Western govts) from where it would be trafficked inland. After all the pleas and protests by the Chinese govt fell on deaf years and with an Opium epidemic caused by cheaply available Opium started to ravage the whole of south China, the Emperor had enough and ordered his troops into Canton to seize and destroy all opium stocks.
This triggered the first Opium war.
By the 1850's Britain was exporting some 6mn tonnes (60 times of Escobar) Opium from India to China.
This again caused a backlash in China and the 2nd Opium War which... amongst other things resulted in the legalisation of Opium consumption.
By the 1890's Opium exports touched 9mn tonnes (90 times Escobar)
And this was the source of money for India to buy British imports.
In India land "reforms" (they weren't reforms), taxation "reforms"(not reforms again) meant that from 1780-1840 there had been a crazy shift of cultivation patterns. It went from a balance of food and cash crops to a priority given to Cash crops (Opium, Cotton, Indigo etc). This was one of the leading causes for the genocidal famine mortality rates but more on that later.
In a nutshell, Indian large scale farmers acquired land from bankrupt farmers (Famines mostly) and started pushing cash crops > more Famines > more bankrupt farmers > more land purchased for almost free > more cash crops > more Famines.
These exports then earned enough cash to purchase British Imports.
In 1780 India was an exporting nation. By 1820 it was exporting ZERO finished goods and importing everything from Britain.
China till 1800 was the largest export nation on earth (Angus Maddison) and by 1830 a net importing nation.
In summary It was a triangular trade.
India exported Opium, Cotton Yarn to China > this enabled it to earn enough forex > purchase British goods.
Now mind you the British took away Indian cotton yarn (the raw material) to Britain at fixed rock bottom prices and this was spun into coarse finished cotton that came back to India.
End it part 1.
Part 2 I will cover the gold standard scam, cause for famine mortality rates and a summary to tie it all in.

Newer traders should read this - (R Multiples)

I've seen that a lot of traders don't understand how to properly measure their gains on trades, so I'm making this post as a quick primer on how to correctly do so.

Here's the problem:

Lots of newer traders say things like "I made 20 pips yesterday". With just that information, it's impossible to effectively judge the gains on that trade.
For example, if the trader made 20 pips and their stop loss was 100 pips away, then you can see that the trade was not so good and they would need to win that trade 5 times out of 6 just to break even.
Now suppose the trader made 20 pips and their initial stop loss was 4 pips away. You can confidently say that the trade was much better than the previous example.

Here's the solution:

Use R multiples to express gains and/or compare trades. Just divide the gain (or loss) by the initial SL distance to get the R multiple. Eg. If your TP was hit for a 52 pip gain, and your initial SL was 10 pips, then the trade return is 52/10 = +5.2R
Comparing R multiples of different trades gives you a way to compare across different timeframes/currency pairs/trading instruments/whatever.

How R multiples may be useful to you:

1 - Assessing performance on different currency pairs - Say you make 20 pips on EURJPY and 30 pips on AUDUSD. Which trade was better? Who knows. But a 4.3R win on EURJPY is clearly better than and a 1.6R win on AUDUSD.
2 - Tracking different exit strategies - in your trading journal you can track the R return of various exit strategies (eg TP at next S/R level, or market exit when price hits a 50 SMA, etc.) over time to assess which gives the best expectancy.
3 - Deciding whether or not to take a particular set up - eg if you know that a trade set up works 50% of the time, but on a potential set up that you're considering, the market structure dictates that your TP would be 0.8R - it's easy to see that the trade has a negative expectancy and should thus be skipped.
4 - Bragging to people on anonymous forums about how good your recent trade was without sounding like a fucking noob.
5 - Come up with your own uses, I'm getting sick of typing.

Other notes

TL;DR - The vast majority of traders should be using R multiples as a framework for thinking about trade returns. Gain/Initial Risk = R return.

New rule! Also are cryptocurrencies an investment, will there be a crash? Everything answered here!

This is going to be the only crypto post for now and an announcement:
Rule 6: Bitcoins & cryptocurrenies should be discussed in CryptoCurrency. Posts regarding this topic will be automatically removed.
If there's a stock correlated with cryptocurrencies, like coinbase going IPO, then that's fine, you might have to message the mods after posting to have it approved, no big deal.
Also if you're questioning whether something is an investment or not, just search for it on personalfinance. For general currency trading strategies, see forex .
If you're wondering if bitcoins are an investment or if there will be a crash, read on.

Are cryptocurrencies an investment?

This post is going to deal with bitcoins & cryptocurrencies as an investment... they're more speculative. All currencies are speculative mostly due to how the forex market works, but more because of exchange rates between countries keep currencies balanced (including inflation, country debt, interest rates, political & economic stability, etc), so you can only profit in price fluctuations.
Sure you could buy the currency of a depressed country, like Mexico decades ago, and then hold in the hopes it'll go up (which it did for Mexico), but that's also speculation (no one knew Mexico would pay off so much debt).
Bitcoins are also affected by other countries' currency values, but more so by the future expectation of legitimacy, world wide adoption, limited gains from mining, and eventual limit in supply. But at any given moment the United States could pay off more debt, raise interest rates to reduce inflation (or cause deflation), grow GDP, or even reduce the supply of USD all of which would increase the value of USD (keep in mind bitcoins can't do any of these things).
Far too many people are treating cryptocoins as an investment because currently (June 5th 2017) a lot of crypto investors are worth a lot of money, god bless you people, so this post will also help you determine if we're headed for a crypto crash and maybe you can keep those profits.

Should I invest in cryptocurrencies?

Understand that an investment is something you hope will go up in the future or provide income, both of which for the long term vs speculation which profits on short term inefficiencies.
Speculative securities are typically commodities, options, bonds, and currencies, but also stocks that are volatile enough to give you extreme returns or extreme loses.

Examples of investments:

Examples of speculation:

Reducing the risk of speculation

Typically for speculation you reduce risk by reducing your trade size and timeframe, but since you're trying to invest into something that is speculative, you can try:
Asset allocation, a strategy that reduces risk.. If you're 80% stocks, 15% bonds, 4% gold, and 1% bitcoins, if something were to happen to bitcoins, you still have 99% of your money.
But even very aggressive long term portfolios leave speculation out completely and just go 100% stocks because stocks benefit from growth while speculative securities like gold benefit from global turmoil in the short term. Only mid risk & mid term portfolios can take advantage of gold's speculative returns.
I also mention asset allocation because many crypto investors have been using this strategy on a portfolio of 100% crypto coins, but that doesn't help you reduce the overall risk of crypto coins, you're just reducing the risk of 1 speculative asset with another speculative asset. 100% crypto portfolio would face the same risks such as being made illegal, IRS aggressively hunting down crypto profits, a drop in correlated coin markets, or just a loss of popularity would all cause a sell off. Even the USD or Chinese currencies becoming more valuable would reduce the value of crypto coins.

Should I buy coins right now?

Cryptocoins are a better investment after a period of consolidation when volatility has stabilized:

Bitcoin 2013/2014 speculation, chart

Bitcoin 2015 consolidation, chart

Source Bitstamp exchange, while the volume is #2 to GDAX, Bitstamp is better to look at for historical price/data, more charts here.

RSI & MACD key for above charts and primer

Analyzing overbought signals

So the first chart above have RSI & MACD screaming that bitcoin is overbought and you shouldn't invest in 2013/2014.
The black squares in the 2nd chart show consolidation and reduced volatility, a "better" time to invest. If you were trading short term, it would be a whole different story, and there would be opportunities to buy & short, but since this is written for investing, the small overbought signals are ignored, so if you were to buy Bitcoin at $300 inside the first blacksquare (2nd chart) and then it suddenly drops to 25%, it's okay because the volatility is much lower compared to previous price movements (nothing compared to 80% loss in the 1st chart). Any investor would tell you a 25% drop is terrible, but bitcoins are speculative and that kind of drop is pretty damn good for this level of volatility.

Nothing goes straight up forever

and anything that comes near this vertical incline will eventually lose 80% to near 100%, always happens, it's usually preceded by emotions (price euphoria), attention, and increased volume, all classic signs that something is becoming riskier.
Other speculative securities gaining multiples and then losing 80% to near 100% of value:

Notable comments on reddit:

*This is just to get you guys looking at different subs on this topic, and yeah it's mostly anti-crypto, but don't let that discourage you.

Is Bitcoin going to crash?

Maybe, the signals are getting louder, you tell me: The only chart you wanted to see this entire time.
So based on the above chart, is bitcoin overbought? MACD levels are the same as 2013's crash, but the increased in value is around 4.3x or 2.4x (depending on which you look at), so maybe we'll see another spike before a crash, I don't know, it's up to interpretation right now. There's the emotional price levels of 3000 and 4000 that we might have no problem getting to in an overbought environment before a correction. And how big will the correction be? I think 80%, but it very well could be around 50% down to $1200, the previous level of resistance which would become support.
I put everything above in its own wiki here.
Well I hope that helps everyone. Sorry to anyone that may feel butthurt on classifying cryptocoins as speculation, I hope you understand the facts. Feel free to argue or agree with this. If I made any mistakes and you point them out, I'll correct them and give you credit for it in an update to this post and the wiki.
Also the automod will is just going to blanket remove posts (not comments) with the following keywords {crypto, bitcoin, btc, etherium, altcoin} (see update 4 below) (this will eventually get relaxed if Coinbase ever IPOs) and then it'll send the user this message:
"Sorry your post[link] was removed in stocks because of rule 6: Bitcoins & cryptocurrenies should be discussed in CryptoCurrency. You can find more information in our are-cryptocurrencies-investments wiki. If you're trying to discuss a non-OTC stock related to cryptocoins like Coinbase IPO, or this was just a mistake, message the mods and they'll approve your post, thanks."
Update: Created wiki, added relevant websites and sub reddits. Also turned on automod reply.
Update2: those relavant websites and subreddits I put into the wiki, thanks u/dross99 for recommending ethereum

Relevant websites/wikis

Relevant subreddits

  • CryptoCurrency - main sub to learn about all bit & altcoins
  • ethtrader - trading eth
  • ethereum - for more eth information
  • btc - the place to have bitcoin discussions or r/CryptoCurrency; while Bitcoin does have a lot of information on Bitcoins in general, you'll find many reddit subs completely opposed to Bitcoin for heavy censorship of discussions, especially those critical of bitcoins, so you're better off reading the sub's wikis and discussing bitcoins in btc & r/CryptoCurrency
  • personalfinance
Update3: Shoutout to the mods on CryptoCurrency
Update4: Updated auto mod keywords, it's not a blanket catch all, a little completed to understand if you don't know regex but it looks like this
"crypto ?(trading|investing)","(should(| I)|could(| I)|can(| I)|how to|is it worth) (buy|sell|mine|min)(|ing) (btc|btcs|bitcoin|ether|etherium|eth|litecoin|ripple|altcoin)"

ACB - A Convertibles Update

I thought it a good time to revisit ACB's prior convertible debt issue, in lieu of their share price advances and further convertible dumps.
For background, at the bottom is a post I did in June 2017 that pulled their debt apart, and tried to make some sense of it.
This is what ACB has done since. There's millions more outstanding, I'll consolidate and update at some point.
They'd triggered an earlier tranche debentures at trigger of some $25MM, squashing that bug earlier this month. They'll be booking a $2MM charge against income in Q2-2018 for this. As well, given share price of today, the accelerated 17MM tranche @ $3 will be executed in December. While it's cash proceeds of some $50MM, they'll be taking a charge against income of $90MM for it in Q2-2018 as well.
Yeah, convertibles can become very expensive money.
One view would be that ACB is doing it now, because it's just gonna become waaay more expensive later on. And, they can deploy that $50MM to build hard assets.
If shares soar, it'll be seen as having been prudent. One way or the other, they've just paid $1.75 for a dollar, 50 million times.
There's more issues as well: 1.9MM 5yr @ $2.76, 1MM 5yr @ $2.39, and.........drum roll...
150MM of 3yr options and warrants for $75MM cash, priced at $3 & $4 respectively in Q1 2018.
I'm gonna need some time and a quantum computer to hash this out. On the face of it, this all makes the phrase 'holy shit' seem a quiet understatement.
Ima gonna do a long haul on this and post it - mainly because the totality of it is so massive relative to the company.
Stay tuned...
***Deconstructing Convertible Debentures - or - How to Quietly Shift Massive Costs onto Shareholders**** - June 2017
I've made references to this before, but, I think a 'Dick and Jane' primer on the subject should be done. Despite the big words in the title, this stuff is really straightforward, and the math is grade 9 level.
It's all about financing.
That is, it's just like you going to the bank for a mortgage or a car loan. You need money you don't have to buy the shit you'd like. So. You're likely not gonna issue debentures for that Maserati (or that creamy lil' Ford Focus you simply have to have), but you will need to pledge some capital or use your credit worthiness to get financing. Businesses do the same thing. There's just more ways for them to do it. I'm not gonna go into them all - innovation in credit and credit-related derivatives is holy-fuck level complex.
Fortunately, we don't need to go anywhere near that heady stuff (google 'interest rate call swaption' if you've got a finance fetish. Or maybe you're an applied mathematician/financial engineer temporally hedging your long dated forex book at a macro level).
Some complexity does play a role here though, but awareness is all that's needed.
First - Definitions:
Second - Options
Options are a derivative that is comprised of two values: intrinsic and extrinsic.
Third - What's a convertible debenture?
It's debt taken by a company, and given to a lender. It's simply a promise to pay. The lender asks for interest to be paid on the money lent (like CP or bonds), usually at rates higher than a secured loan.
Sometimes the companies can't afford the interest rates. So, they get creative to entice lenders.
One way is to offer nested options around either the company or perhaps future cash flows.
Aurora (ACB) recently issued some convertible debentures to finance the Sky expansion. Cool. CMED issued some a year and a bit ago. Ok.
Let's look at ACB's in detail, and find out what it cost them to get financing. I'm only gonna do a napkin calc. I could do the deep one, but, I don't want to spend 2 hours to get called names by the non-contributing lost stockhouse vagrants in here. Honestly, you can do the math too. And I'll point out where the complex is, so you'll know what you don't know.
Knowing what you don't know is really useful in life. And business.
I've seen a bunch in online boards say how great that 7% interest rate ACB got on the $75 million. Is that the actual cost of the money?
No. It's not.
They're paying a whole lot more than that. And if you're a shareholder, you should be really fucking pissed. I would be. I've never held them, or if I did, it was some short term swing trading last fall. If I can't remember, it wasn't much to remember.
Fourth - ACB's Convertible Debenture Issue
The $75 million lent is repayable on May 2, 2019. 7% interest, payable semi annually (June, Dec). I'm gonna ignore compounding, and do a straight calc. Materially, it won't matter.
The debentures also have a call option nested in them.
They also have a put option in them.
Both of those options have value. Both extrinsic and intrinsic.
So, the lender is not only getting interest on the cash, they're also getting free options from ACB. This was likely needed to sweeten the deal enough for them to do it.
There are models out there that value options. They hold up really well. Mathematical laws and all. Simplicity and elegance.
Fifth - Total Financing Cost
Annually, ACB is paying $5.25MM to service the debt. Total interest cost before they have to repay the principal is $10.5MM. Right?
What about that option value they gave up? ACB could've sold warrants/options, and used the premium received as financing too.
Instead, they gave to to the financiers. What did they give?
Using a $2.20 market price for ACB (today's, not May second), 2 years duration, 100% vol, the call option is $0.96.
The put option is $3.20.
So, effectively a call option on ~= 20 million shares, and a put on some ~= 15 million shares - assuming full strike on the $75 million.
If ACB had written options themselves and sold them, they could have collected the dough, issued contingent treasury shares as a reserve on the balance sheet, and kept the premiums as recompense.
I mentioned that there is some complexity in this. The hair on this is in the continuous conversion of the options (open to exercise at any time subject to 30 days notice - also known a a 'European' option, rather than an 'American' option). It's also got debt covenants within the debentures that prohibit ACB from further dilution (this is a failsafe for the lender, in case ACB decides to crash the stock by issuing another billion shares).
And - the lender keeps their downside intact (recall, if ACB goes tits up, they've got no asset to grab), the lender will short an equivalent $75million in stock. They'll take the money, and invest it in short term money markets while waiting, topping up their 7% nominal interest. It's called a credit box.
Despite it being a debenture, the lender is effectively fully securitized.
So, how much did that $75 million cost them?
Well, it's all there. I encourage you to look at this and work through it. I hope you have questions.
The CFO at Aurora will have the answers.
TLDR: Aurora is paying more than 37% in effective interest rates on their May 2 debenture issue.
EDIT - a couple of more links inserted and a clean up of my shitty writing.
EDIT 2 - at the bottom of this all is the impact on shareholders. What I assume is the obvious - I never did actually state. If the lender exercises, ACB will have to book a loss on their income statement for the difference between the strike of the call, and market. Potentially, it could be lots. If ACB hit $5 before May 2019, they'll take a $50MM hit to income. Probably wiping out a half year (or more) in sales. That's really the bottom of this all. Just fyi.

A brief introduction to Blackhedge

There has been lot of queries regarding Blackhedge. As one of the founders of Blackhedge I thought it would be proper to put up a brief primer on Blackhedge explaining about ourselves and our services and how you can profit from it before it fully goes functional.Those of you who have not visited our website yet can visit us at www.blackhedge.co .
In short Blackhedge is the world's first Altcoin centric proprietary trading firm.That is simply we trade all fiat asset classes ( forex, stocks, commodities, bonds) and also crypto currencies with company owned shareholder funds and pay dividends to our shareholders in purely BLK .( This is unlike some bitcoin based hedgefunds who only trade bitcoins)We also finance BLK centric crypto projects and promote blackcoin technology.
Most of you by now are probably thinking that we are yet another crypto scam site who will disappear with the money overnight.Most of you might question that is it even legal ??The main issue with most cryptocoiners is trust so far I understand and we are not even asking you to trust us.
We are a proper registered firm managing our company owned funds and also acting as a money manager for three very reputed and regulated brokerage houses. As I said you do not need to trust us to make money from us :-). All you have to do is open an account with one of the brokers we are affiliated under and copy our trades in our account. So you do not have to pay money to us directly. You have full control of your money and you may withdraw it anytime you like minus our performance fees which varies from 15 -20 % which the broker directly debits from your account in case of a profit. We also accept clients from U.S and Canada.Sounds interesting ?? Read on.
For Non U.S clients
Minimum investment :- 100 USD Minimum top up :- 20 USD Performance fee:- 15 % Withdrawal penalty :- Nil Deposit :- Bank Wire/Credit Card and various e-currencies Broker :- Fxopen ( regulated in New Zealand) To open an account all you have to do is to click the following link and invest under our trade signals https://pamm.fxopen.com/en/Pamm/Blackhedge6
For U.S/Canada based clients Minimum investment :- 500 USD Performance fee :- 20 % Withdrawal penalty :- Nil Deposit Mode :- Bank Wire/Credit Cards Broker:- Tallinex( regulated in St. Vincents and Grenadines) To open an account please click the following link open an account http://www.tallinex.com/open-account?i=127745&s=127745
Also note we are not responsible if the broker does not open your account because of the lack of documents on your part or because of their anti- money laundering policies. We also do not provide tax or financial planning advise to clients availing this service. Need futher help or clarifications you can email us at [email protected]
Also note a major percentage of the performance fees will go towards financing BLK projects and development of the blackcoin eco system.
Further questions you might be pondering upon would be - 1)Is Blackhedge a ponzi scheme ? 2)If it is not a ponzi then is it profitable ? 3)Credentials of the Blackhedge traders ?
1) It cannot be a ponzi scheme because we do not accept any direct money from clients. We manage only our self owned shareholder(member) money .There are no guaranteed quantum of profits.Profits depend upon the performance of our traders.
2) Well you can follow our live trades in twitter at @Blackhedge_ Our trading statistics can be certified and tracked at a reputed third party website http://myfxbook.com/members/blackhedge . Yes we do make money. Need more mind boggling stats ?mail us we will be happy to flood you with more stats.
3)Traders trading our accounts have atleast one international financial certification i.e either a CFA( Certified Financial Analyst) or someone who has cleared all three levels of CMT ( Chartered Market Technician) Program from Market Technicians Association, New York. It is a prerequisite for anyone handling our accounts.We do not guarantee any certain quantum of profits but we do ensure that the trades you follow are done by professional qualified traders.As one of the founders of Blackhedge I have over 10 years of trading experience in the financial markets with both the certifications mentioned.
If one wants to make a more active association with us in the capacity of a shareholder, we are open to private equity placements.Shareholders ofcourse gets their dividend in blackcoins and enjoy superior returns by participating directly in the growth of the company.
Current Status :- Trading is on and interested folks and copy our trades and also contribute to the growth of blackcoin.
Future Plans :- We are working on some other features of our website which will be online soon enough.We are also in the process of developing some pure blackcoin based financial products which I cannot elaborate right now for the sake of confidentiality.
I hope members of this community will support us in this venture and together we can make a great coin i.e Blackcoin the greatest.
Always bet on BLK.

in the media
InziderX, un exchange descentralizado con opciones pro-trading
4 Ago, 2018 Etiquetado decentralized / exchange / ICO / InziderX por Juan José
https://preview.redd.it/5vxgyltzc6e11.png?width=960&format=png&auto=webp&s=81f01833bc5ab01ad897054d7c497d12ec47b09b
Los mercados de divisas (conocidos por su acrónimo en inglés “FOREX”) pueden ser muy complicados ya que además de limitar continuamente a sus miembros con largos tiempos de espera o políticas arbitrarias, terminan bloqueando nuestro dinero. InziderX ha surgido pensando en ofrecer la mejor liquidez posible dentro de un mercado de intercambio de monedas digitales y ha creado una plataforma bastante segura en donde será posible llevar a cabo intercambios OTC desde el anonimato.
Ahora bien, para conocer verdaderamente cada aspecto de InziderX hay que saber primero qué son exactamente las operaciones OTC (en inglés “Over The Counter”), en donde cada una de las partes dentro de un intercambio de criptoactivos tienen la libertad de negociar y tener un auténtico control sobre las condiciones de dicha transacción en tiempo real y con máxima liquidez.
Todo esto tiene una gran importancia para aquellas empresas o grandes comerciantes que necesitan mantener su dinero en constante movimiento para que siga generando mayores ganancias, incluso resulta útil hasta para usuarios de criptomonedas que no sean “ballenas” del mundo cripto, pero desean introducirse dentro del mercado FOREX desde un medio descentralizado.
Mercados descentralizados y liquidez
El corazón de este proyecto está en su búsqueda de una libertad económica totalmente descentralizada. Asimismo lo afirman los de InziderX, quienes creen que los intercambios centralizados están por acabar en el futuro próximo, pero a pesar de ello saben que las plataformas de la actualidad no cumplen con las expectativas que se les tienen.
Y ante esto deciden tomar cartas sobre el asunto, para ello han iniciado por comprometerse a dar un servicio blindado contra piratas informáticos de todo tipo y que además no esté amarrado con algún límite de retiro o largos tiempos de espera, por lo que esperamos de InziderX una disponibilidad de 24/7 que no necesite de grandes depósitos iniciales y sin regulaciones que vayan en contra del libre mercado.
https://preview.redd.it/597cedh2d6e11.png?width=1446&format=png&auto=webp&s=fad7ce8c36186e1d93453ddc53138a6c3829445b
¿Cuáles son las utilidades de la plataforma InziderX?
En los últimos tiempos hemos tenido la gran oportunidad de vislumbrar y analizar una extensa cantidad de proyectos de plataformas digitales que funcionan dentro del mercado de intercambio de criptoactivos, pero las múltiples característica de InziderX nos parecen de lo más atractivas, comenzando con el intercambio directo sin necesidad de registro alguno o de verificaciones de identidad que puedan poner en riesgo nuestra información personal.
InziderX
En primer lugar, lo único que se necesita es descargar el programa digital de InziderX, lugar desde el cual todas las transacciones se realizan directamente por una billetera Dapp que soporta los intercambios Atomic Swap (literalmente; intercambio atómico) el cual utiliza la tecnología blockchain de cadenas cruzadas para garantizar mayor certeza del anonimato de todos los intercambios, todo esto es llevado a cabo a una alta velocidad por la implementación complementaria del protocolo Lightning Network.
De esta manera, al momento de realizar algún intercambio, dicha plataforma aseguraría también una máxima escalabilidad del mercado, esto es posible gracias a que puede soportar a la ya mencionada tecnología Lightning Network, la cual tiene la basta capacidad de tramitar simultáneamente cientos de millones de movimientos digitales dentro del mismo blockchain de InziderX, por lo que tampoco te tendrías que preocupar por saturaciones del sistema y subsecuentes cierres técnicos debido a ello.
Distintos tipos de órdenes de intercambio a tu alcance
Quienes trabajan profesionalmente en los mercados de intercambios de activos digitales, sean estas criptomonedas o cualquier otra forma de dinero, son llamados Traders, ellos estudian y proyectan el desarrollo de los mercados bursátiles. Pero sus conocimientos no siempre los poseen el resto de inversores. Como consecuencia de esto la estrategia de los “no Traders” ha sido que las más de 9 opciones de intercambio posibles se reduzcan a las más sencillas (eliminando por defecto las llamadas transacciones complejas).
InziderX en cambio surge como una plataforma en donde sus usuarios dejen de perder ganancias a causa de las limitaciones de plataformas obsoletas, sin necesidad de ser un experto en la materia podrás realizar transacciones de carácter complejo en las cuales se estipulen de antemano cada una de las características de la misma.
Y si ya tienes experiencia en estos tipos de plataformas, InziderX también tiene interesantes facilidades únicas, que a pesar de ser a veces poco apreciables, sin dudas harán más sencilla la interfaz entre los usuarios y la plataforma. Un ejemplo claro de esto es el cálculo automatizado del promedio de precios y la posibilidad de agregar múltiples órdenes de compra y venta en los 20 tipos de criptodivisas más populares y seguras de la red.
Tradingview.com soportará las tablas de análisis de InziderX
Una muy interesante asociación es la que hay entre la red social especializada en Traders, se trata de la web Tradingview.com y el proyecto InziderX, gracias a esto todo el ecosistema de InziderX podrá tener acceso a una herramienta muy útil que mejorará la experiencia del usuario dentro de la plataforma, esto comprende incluir, por su puesto, una manera más fácil para basar las decisiones comerciales en pocos minutos, o hasta en segundos!
https://preview.redd.it/t3rrst77d6e11.png?width=1601&format=png&auto=webp&s=08cdfae1b5a5c3a0445c0003f5c61f725ba4e780
Lo mejor de estos gráficos en línea es que pueden ser utilizados por principiantes o expertos sin distinción, ya que ambos tipos de usuarios tendrán un igual acceso a las importantes gráficas (que van desde Renko, Kagi, Bar, y muchas otras más), donde existe la posibilidad de mantener múltiples de ellas abiertas o acceder a un historial previamente corroborado de cada una de estas gráficas. En total son más de 50 las utilidades disponibles para poder generar tus propios gráficos con opciones trading avanzadas, las cuales solo suelen estar disponibles con servicios de pago, pero en el exchange descentralizado InziderX lo tendrás de manera gratuita.
Si eres olvidadizo, InziderX también ha pensado en ti, ya que al registrar de manera opcional correos electrónicos, números telefónicos o asociarlos al Dapp recibirás importantes notificaciones por estos medios, como por ejemplo, mensajes de aviso en donde se te informe acerca de un cambio específico acerca de si alguna divisa como el ETH/USD o BTC/USD se encuentra en estados óptimos de compra o venta.
Se parte de una comunidad más grande
Al unirse al ecosistema de InziderX se articula a una visión de comunidad en donde todos los miembros tienen voz y voto, desde el usuario principiante hasta el experto que realiza todos sus intercambios en base de complejos algoritmos matemáticos, tendrán la oportunidad de opinar y decidir sobre el futuro del proyecto en todos sus niveles. De esta forma, no existe una pirámide donde algunos son más beneficiados que otros o viceversa, por el contrario, se respalda la igualdad de oportunidades para todos los miembros del club.
Tanto en la simple apariencia de la interfaz del programa como también en la estructura informática o económica de toda la plataforma, siempre y cuando no influya negativamente sobre los principios del proyecto (liquidez y descentralización en las operaciones), todas las innovaciones que se lleven a cabo serán llevadas a consenso general, para ello, dentro de este programa será posible acceder a un sistema de votación, que según explican será abierto, transparente y seguro. Sin duda, pinta un excelente futuro de InziderX y de los traders!

Flash Informativo: Manipulación del mercado y exceso de FUD en Bitcoin – Episodio 51


Territorio Bitcoin ha lanzado un nuevo episodio de su Poscast semanal conducido por Fernando Molina desde España, de donde se repasará la actualidad del mercado Bitcoin, las expectativas para la próxima semana con la aprobación de los ETF del CBOE, los meetups que están en el calendario y los datos del concurso para ganar unas camisetas exclusivas.
Cada semana Territorio Bitcoin publica un nuevo Podcast con información de primera mano, que todo trader debe conocer a fin de tomar las decisiones acertadas durante sus próximas operaciones dentro del mercado de las criptomonedas.
En este Podcast número 51, Fernando nos habla principalmente del estado del mercado de las criptomonedas y la manipulación importante que bajo la que se encuentran sometidos los criptoactivos. También Fernando comenta que la manipulación del mercado al ser globalizada, proviene de diferentes países y actores, que al ser un pequeño mercado es fácilmente manipulable. Según CoinMarketCap, el mercado de los criptoactivos es de $200 mil millones de dólares y aunque parece una cifra alta, hay más de 100 fondos de inversión que superarían ampliamente ese capital y que hasta ahora invierten en el mercado Forex, Oro Petróleo y diferentes fuentes de financiación, hasta ahora porque para Fernando todo este movimiento y fluctuaciones que lleva sufriendo cada semana el mercado, son movimientos de estas grandes ballenas colocándose en su posición. Pero también Fernando llama la atención a que como llevan diciendo muchísimos expertos en Wall Street y diferentes medios de comunicación de tipo económico en Europa y Asia, sobre la expectativa de que viene una fuerte crisis monetaria y que va afectar al Dólar principalmente y aunque sin duda esta crisis en su camino destructivo se va a llevar a varias economías emergentes que apostaron en su día por endeudarse en dólares precisamente como el caso de Turquía. Pero lo importante a tomar en cuenta, es que históricamente con cada crisis monetaria global, el Bitcoin ha dado un salto como inversión Refugio o de soporte frente a las pérdidas en los mercados tradicionales. Si bien es cierto que el Bitcoin ha bajado desde los $20000 dólares de su máximo en diciembre, actualmente su valor se encuentra entre los $5500 y los $6500 dólares durante varias semanas o meses. No No obstante Fernado señala que se ha visto que hay un fuerte valor de resistencia sobre los casi $6000 dólares que es donde se han ido posicionando las ballenas y dónde los meses de marzo y de abril pasados varios fondos soberanos y fondos de inversión muy potentes hicieron compras fuera del mercado en cantidades de cientos de miles de Bitcoin. Esta operación que se situó entre los $5000 y $5500 dólares, hace prever que cualquier precio que baje de esa posición es automáticamente comprado nuevamente, algo que evidentemente estos fondos no van a querer ni permitir que se baje el valor de Bitcoin por debajo de su precio de compra. De hecho, éstos fondos tienen capacidad más que de sobra para mantener el precio a su antojo, por lo que ahora mismo no debe preocupar para nada que el Bitcoin esté en esta horquilla de los $6000 dólares. Obviamente, Fernando afirmó de nuevo que se está manipulando el mercado, pero mantiene que el ETF del CBOE de Bitcoin que se aprobará el próximo 30 de septiembre llevará al mercado a reventar literalmente porque se verá acompañada de grandes noticias relacionadas con proyectos de empresas multinacionales que crearán un FOMO “Fear Of Missing Out”​ brutal para fin de año


Esta semana Fernando, tampoco olvida a Facebook como uno de esos creadores de FOMO con la compra encubierta de Coinbase y además de la gestión de licencias bancarias para operar. Pero hay que estar atentos a Google o Apple o proyectos la sombra como los que maneja Elon Musk y Tesla, su sueño de Hyperloop al que se sumó Richard Branson dueño de Virgin. De hecho, Richard Branson además es uno de los grandes inversores del Bitcoin desde el comienzo, cuando Virgin empezó a aceptar Bitcoin en sus tiendas desde 2013. De esta forma, Fernando infiere que tanto Virgin Airlines como Virgin Galactic que por ejemplo permiten desde 2013 pagar vuelos intercontinentales o visitas al espacio con Bitcoin, puede que motivado a esta asociación indirecta o directa con el Elon Musk y la adhesión del proyecto que ahora se llama Virgin Hyperloop One, pueda traer en un futuro muy cercano algo que ver con Blockchain.

En otras ideas Fernando también se ocupa de resaltar en el Podcast que Bitcoin es la única inversión que está resultando estable con respecto el resto de las Altcoin que han sufrido una masacre brutal con caídas de más de 60 al 80% de su valor no sólo máximo sino valor medio. Eso si, también informa expresamente “_que que invertir en Bitcoin es de alto riesgo_“. En ese sentido Fernando aclara que de nuevo están corriendo en los medios versiones que señalan que las criptomonedas deben ser tributadas y en consecuencia el expresa su clara posición al respecto, pues a su parecer quienes tienen a su cargo la creación de normas tributarias no comprenden la mecánica de las criptomonedas y no tienen asesoría técnica especializada. Luego Fernando en ese mismo orden de ideas, criticó un par de notas publicadas en medios dedicados a la economía que claramente tampoco poseen asesoramiento técnico ni conocen el funcionamiento del mercado de criptoactivos, por lo que en este Podcast podrás escuchar la respuesta de Fernando a sendos artículos relacionados con el Bitcoin publicados por medios de algo nivel económico que cometen errores al elaborar las noticias y que pareciera que buscan generar FUD “Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt” en los mercados.

En cuanto a Meetups y Conferencias, Fernando Molina ya comentaba la semana pasada, que esta semana se celebraba en la ciudad de Las Vegas, EE.UU., en el Mandalay Bay el evento Blockchain ChainXChange, que para hoy miércoles 15 después de 3 días de grandes ponencias se cierra con la intervención de Steve Wozniak el fundador de Apple junto a Steve Jobs. Pero como éste evento ya no se puede asistir, Fernando trae varios eventos de primer nivel para agregar a la agenda. Empezando, el próximo 05 y 06 de octubre en la ciudad de Andorra se celebrará el primer Congreso Internacional sobre Tecnología Blockchain CIBTC el Principado de Andorra con una capacidad reducida cuatrocientas (400) personas y con grandes proyectos de toda Europa e incluso alguno americano y asiático, así que en pocas semanas ya tendremos los acuerdos definitivos y podremos ir avanzando más información de uno de los eventos más grandes realizados en el norte de la Península ibérica sobre tecnología Blockchain.
Luego, en el mes de noviembre, atención porque se llevará a cabo el mayor evento de Europa y tal vez del mundo relacionado con la tecnología se trata del Web Summit de Lisboa los días 5 al 11 de noviembre con más de 70.000 entradas vendidas ya y más de 1200 ponencias de más de 170 países, con unos números de auténtico vértigo que avalan uno de los eventos más interesante del año, que se celebrará en el Altice Arena de Lisboa y en donde simultáneamente se van a celebrar 25 conferencias de distintos tipos de tecnología por lo que respecta a Blockchain de Bitcoin la más importante sería la Money Conf dónde van a exponer grandes voces de la industria desde Max Levchin sin uno de los fundadores de PayPal a Robert (Bob) Greifeld ex-CEO del Nasdaq, el famoso inversor Timothy Cook Draper mejor conocido como Tim Draper, Francisco González Rodríguez Presidente de BBVA como banco español más representado en una conferencia sobre futuro del dinero. Todos ellos juntos a otros nombres como Jon Matonis director y fundador de la fundación Bitcoin o Joseph Lubin fundador de ConsenSys y co-fundador junto a Vitalik Buterin de Ethereum. El Web Summit es uno de los grandes eventos a nivel global, sin duda con un cartel impresionante en cuanto a ponencias de interés y una capacidad de atracción de visitantes de alto nivel mundial realmente espectacular con más de 70.000 entradas vendidas a un precio de unos 675 € cada una y con antelación, una auténtica locura.

Y en cuanto al sorteo de las camisetas, Fernando indica que ya hay casi 100 personas apuntadas al sorteo de las camisetas del capítulo 50 del podcast Territorio Bitcoin por lo que tomaron al decisión de sortear 20 camisetas, agregando otro en diseño especial para las damas que tengan la suerte de que les toque en el sorteo en color Rosa. Hoy miércoles si da tiempo, se mostrarán los diseños en la cuenta de Twitter, así que todavía están a tiempo de participar antes del próximo lunes por la mañana fecha en que se realizará el sorteo.

All these senseless FUD tax posts are just stupid...

Foreign currency taxation is incredibly complex, and not well understood. For a primer see http://www.fxop.com/Forex%20Taxation.html
On the contrary, by calling bitcoin gains capital gains, the tax rate is MUCH lower, especially on long term gains, and the rules much simpler.
Of course you have to track every transaction. Its really hard for me to imagine anybody seriously believed otherwise.
Under IRS rules, even a drug dealer must carefully record each transaction and the gain or loss, using commonly accepted methods for inventory evaluation. You couldn't possibly have expected any less for bitcoin.

Thoughts on USD/CAD exchange trend

I couldn't help but notice that with our recent rate hike, the Canadian dollar strengthened a few points. If we assume the prime rate continues to increase over the next few years, can we expect the Canadian dollar to continue to strengthen? Back in 2011 we were roughly at par -- is that something in the realm of possibility in a few years, or an aberration? I'd like to learn more about the major factors affecting US/Canada exchange rates in general, but most of the googling I'm doing is short term technical forex charting, I'm looking more for a primer on the fundamentals.

How do you price a USD/Bitcoin forward contract?

I have been lurking for a while and am pretty impressed with the caliber of this forum, so here's my challenge: I am having a hard time seeing how any crypto currency ever overcomes exchange rate volatility. Like most of you I am very excited by the potential of a decentralized currency, but I cannot get my head around the practical conundrum.
The conundrum in a nutshell: liquid debt markets are the sine qua non of stable exchange rates, but volatile exchange rates deter borrowers and lenders from originating Bitcoin-denominated debt.
How can an entrepreneur ever build a Bitcoin-based business if no lenders will quote them an interest rate on a Bitcoin-denominated loan? As a potential investor in a Bitcoin-denominated business, what baseline return would you demand on an investment with a 1-year payback period? How about a 5-year payback period?
If you can’t hedge exposure to Bitcoin volatility then how can you even think about Bitcoin-denominated investments?
Quick primer on using debt markets to price forward currency contracts: the forward discount/premium between two currencies is driven by the ratio of interest rates on deposits, because a decoupling of interest rates and currency forwards would represent an arbitrage opportunity (with turnover of >$4 trillion per day the global foreign exchange market is mind-bogglingly liquid; it reacts swiftly to new information and obvious inefficiencies are quickly traded away).
For example, say the 1-year rates on USD and MEX deposits are 2% and 3%, respectively. If the current (spot) exchange rate is 15 MEX/USD, then the 1-year forward contract would be 15.14706 MEX/USD (15 x 1.03/1.02).
The intuition behind this is that you could simultaneously (i) borrow 1,000 USD at 2%, (ii) trade 1,000 USD for 15,000 MEX, (iii) invest the pesos at 3%, and (iv) lock in the 1-year forward rate of 15.14706 MEX/USD. After one year you would receive 15,450 MEX (15,000 x 1.03), which after settling your forward contract would yield 1,020 US (15,450 / 15.14706), which is exactly what you owe on the original loan (1,000 x 1.02). Total wash.
If the forward rate were anything other than 15.14706 you could generate arbitrage. Another example: if the 1-year rate were 15.1000 MEX/USD then by borrowing 1,000 USD at 2% and investing it as 15,000 MEX at 3% you would end up after a year with 1,023.18 USD (15,450 / 15.1000), which after paying your 1,020 USD loan leaves $3.18 of risk-free profit.
Here’s my point: deep, liquid debt markets are the ballasts of currencies. They stabilize long-term exchange rates so that borrowers and lenders are comfortable committing to long term investment vehicles. If long-term exchange rates are not stable (i.e.; tradable at stable rates) then companies are squeamish about doing business in foreign countries and trade is limited to short-term transactions. This is what we see today in the Bitcoin economy, with merchants swapping out Bitcoins for dollars immediately following their transactions.
This strikes me as a classic chicken/egg problem. For want of a ForEx market Bitcoin can’t develop a debt market, and for want of a debt market the ForEx market will never appear.
Disclaimer: I’m not an economist, but like most of you I have a strong amateur interest in economics. My ForEx background is largely academic (I structure commodity derivatives for a living). My understanding could be completely off base, and I am wide open to being shown my errors.

I've been playing for awhile, and I have some intermediate/advanced questions

First off, I'm playing the current version without any DLCs (can't afford them yet).
  1. How do you deal with "Title Loss On Succession" in one of your vassals' holdings? Forex: I am the Duke of Flanders, and the County of Yperen is going to pass outside of my control when my vassal there kicks it. Do I have any option besides claiming it and revoking his title or just crossing my fingers and hoping that he pumps out an heir?
  2. I understand marriage succession in theory, but so far in games in Ireland and France I've had no success actually using marriage to gain territory. What am I missing? Also, it's my understanding that matrilineal marriage is kind of broken right now. Any word on a patch?
  3. DNA. How does it work? Should I be focusing on improving certain stats? Is there a primer on how best to genetically engineer one's family?
  4. Besides the lengthy process of building holding improvements, is there any other way to increase the size of my military? I thought I was doing good as the King of Ireland with a levy size of 6,500, but then Scotland invaded with 25,000 and pretty much ended me. This was in 1150.
  5. Let's say I'm at war with someone because they've attacked me. Let's say I decide, what the heck, might as well grab some of their territory while I'm at it. Is there a way to claim a holding of theirs while already at war, or do I have to beat them, wait 10 years and then re-declare?
Thanks in advance!

¿Camino de la Grexit? (1)

La presión para devolver el dinero a los acreedores europeos podría forzar pronto al Gobierno griego de Syriza a abandonar elementos fundamentales del programa anti austeridad con que ganaron las pasadas elecciones de enero y asumieron su mandato, o bien al impago de la deuda, que a su vez podría suponer su salida del Euro, la moneda común de 19 países europeos.
Las noticias que aparecieron el lunes [1] (27-IV-2015), cuando fue escrito este artículo, sugerían que los funcionarios del Ministerio de Finanzas griego, dirigidos poor alguien cercano al primer ministro Alexis Tsipras, estarían preparándose para enviar al Gobierno alemán nuevas propuestas que contemplarían medidas de austeridad para mantener las privatizaciones y restringir el gasto público, tal y como exigen los prestamistas, a cambio de financiación para evitar el impago.
Aunque la información resulte exagerada o inexacta, los rumores de por sí muestran la intensidad de la presión sobre Grecia para que capitule ante las exigencias de sus prestamistas.
El ambiente de crisis se ha agravado a lo largo del mes de abril. Para afrontar el pago de 815 millones de dólares al Fondo Monetario Internacional, correspondiente al tramo que vence a primeros de mayo, más otros 425 millones de intereses, Tsipras aprobó un decreto a finales de abril que otorgaba al Banco Central griego el control directo de todos los fondos mantenidos por los gobiernos locales y las instituciones públicas.
Ese movimiento planateó nuevas dudas sobre si el Gobierno de Syriza sería capaz de mantener los compromisos electorales: uno, el pago regular y completo de salarios y pensiones a los trabajadores; dos, la finalización de los despidos públicos; y tres, no aumentar el IVA.
Si el Gobierno decide seguir adelante con ellos y no hacer los pagos podría encontrarse fuera de la zona euro y verse obligado a tomar una serie de medidas como el control de capitales y la nacionalización de bancos y posiblemente otros sectores de la economía para que estos sigan funcionando, y ahí la acción de los trabajadores desempeñarán un papel decisivo.
Puede que pronto no le quede otra opción, incluso si el Gobierno hace más concesiones. Pese a ver sido obligada en febrero a dar marcha atrás en varias de sus propuestas electorales (2), Syriza sigue enfrentada a las autoridades europeas, las cuales están dedicadas a impedir que el Gobierno griego de izquierdas ponga en marcha medidas para rebatir la devastadora política de austeridad de estos últimos años.
La pregunta es así de dura: pagar a los acreedores o pagar los salarios de los funcionarios y pensionistas.
El enfrentamiento plantea la posibilidad de que Grecia se vea forzada a abandonar el Euro. Tanto si es deliberada, "Grexit", como si es el resultado del impago de la deuda, "Greccident", la salida de Grecia de la zona euro traería consecuencias económicas y políticas imprevisibles.
Pero al parecer, es algo a lo que Alemania, la potencia dominante en la UE, está deseando arriesgarse. Desde la restructuración de la deuda griega en 2012, en los países miembros de la UE se ha producido una transferencia del riesgo de insolvencia de los bancos privados a los contribuyentes. Con los bancos supuestamente aislados del riesgo de impago, la Comisión Europea, el Banco Central Europeo (BCE) y el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI), conocidos conjuntamente como la Troika, están apretando los tornillos.
En estos momentos, alrededor de 2,5 millones de personas de una población de 11 millones viven bajo el umbral de la pobreza (3). Otros 3,8 millones están al borde de la misma. La tasa de desempleo a comienzos de 2015 era un 26,6%, y un 52% entre jóvenes de 15 a 24 años. Los salarios han caído un 5% de media anual desde 2009.
No obstante, para asegurarse un acuerdo temporal de cuatro meses de 7.800 millones de dólares que permitiría a su país obtener los fondos que precisa desesperadamente, el Gobierno griego debe inclinarse ante nuevas exigencias (4).
Para aumentar la presión todavía más, el BCE ha diseñado una serie de planes para limitar los préstamos a los bancos comerciales en virtud de la "ayuda de liquidez de emergencia", que hasta ahora a mantenido a flote a los bancos griegos, aun cuando las grandes fortunas del país siguen sacando su dinero de Grecia. Como señalaron consultores del banco de inversiones Brown Harriman (5): <>.
Si el Gobierno griego piensa que puede posponer una vez más <> es porque esa ha sido hasta ahora la actitud de Tsipras y la mayoría de los líderes de Syriza.
Creyeron desde el principio que el estrepitoso fracaso de las políticas de austeridad y un mandato fuerte de los votantes griegos obligarían al FMI, la UE y el BCE a negociar un compromiso razonable: uno que aliviara la carga de la deuda griega y permitiera al país seguir dentro del la zona euro.
Por eso, en vez de preparar al país ante una posible salida del Euro, el Gobierno fomentó la ilusión de que se podría alcanzar un acuerdo tolerable con las autoridades europeas y el FMI.
El resultado puede verse en una encuesta de opinión realizada en abril, según la cual el 70% de las personas entrevistadas apoya un compromiso con la Troika (6) para alcanzar un acuerdo que permita a Grecia permanecer dentro de la zona euro, una opinión que ha sido impulsada enérgicamente por los medios griegos, incluso ante la presión, cada vez mayor, por parte de las autoridades europeas que podrían empujar a Grecia fuera del Euro, le guste o no.
Como señalaron muchas personas de la izquierda griega, incluyendo la Plataforma de Izquierdas dentro de Syriza (7), Tsipras renunció a una pequeña posibilidad de maniobrar al descartar de manera preventiva cualquier escenario que contemplase el impago. Los líderes del partido del Gobierno siguieron aferrados a la esperanza de un acuerdo con la Troika, incluso después de verse obligados a dar marcha atrás en su primera confrontación con las autoridades europeas en febrero.
En ese momento, el Gobierno acordó mantener un elevado "superávit primario" -el saldo presupuestario del Gobierno antes del pago de intereses- y llevar a cabo una serie de nuevas "reformas" que incluirían privatizaciones y otras medidas que se especificarían más adelante.
Al presentar este duro revés como una victoria, tanto Tsipras como el Ministro de Finanzas griego, Yanis Varoufakis, han tratado de ganar tiempo con la esperanza de "zafarse" del Ministro de Finanzas alemán, Wolfgang Schäuble, apelando a los dirigentes de Francia, Italia, el FMI e incluso a Barack Obama.
No ha funcionado. Varoufakis intentó apaciguar al FMI (8) en la reunión que tuvo lugar en Washington en abril asegurando que Grecia <>. Pero no hubo ninguna concesión.
Pocos días después, Varoufakis tuvo una recepción abiertamente hostil (9) en la reunión de ministros de Finanzas de la Zona Euro celebrada en Letonia.
Pese a todo, en un artículo publicado en su blog, Varoufakis insistió (10) en que Grecia estaba dispuesta a limitar las prejubilaciones, privatizar parcialmente activos estables y llevar a cabo medidas favorables a las empresas en nombre de la "consolidación fiscal", un eufemismo para recortes presupuestarios. <>, escribió Varoufakis.
Unos días después de la publicación de esa entrada, Tsipras habló directamente con Angela Merkel, dejando a Varoufakis a un lado (11). Pero esto sólo puede significar que el primer ministro griego estaría dispuesto a hacer más concesiones que Varoufakis. Al haber dejado la amenaza de salirse del Euro fuera de la mesa de negociación desde el principio, Tsipras tiene muy poco margen de maniobra.

Questions Answers
I have a good friend who is a VP at your firm . They blamed the entire Financial crisis on ' poor people who could not afford their mortgages ' they said this was pretty much he opinion among the investment banks . How do you feel about what happened to Greece and Goldmans hand in it ? That is not true. Opinion is very much split within the investment banks and there is no right or wrong answer. I personally don't believe at all that the crisis was caused by 'poor people' - and I don't like that sort of categorization of people in the first place. There are perhaps 15/20 different institutions you could blame for the crisis, there's no way of isolating individuals. I'm not sure what exactly you think GS's hand in the Greece affair was. Of course it's a sad story and I feel remorseful - I recently donated £50,000 at a charity ball to help rebuild one of the islands which has almost been burned to the ground. But ultimately Greece employed GS at the time because they wanted to fudge their finances so as to meet entry requirements for the Euro i.e. the greek government was knowingly employing GS to help perform an extremely risky task - GS didn't force anything upon them. If the experiment explodes 10 years later (as it did), should GS really be the party to blame?
The next day, you are flipping through television channels and randomly come across a pre-season CFL game between the Toronto Argonauts and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Knowing your inevitable future, do you now watch it? Yes of course i fucking do. The future is inevitable. Chuck Klosterman i like your name.
I love seeing the ignorance that emerges in these AMA's relating to investment bankers. I am really interested in a career in either IB or Consulting, have a few questions for you. Thank you to fletch below for answering this question.
1) How did you cope with the hours? I like working hard, I like working for my money but I also like enjoying free time and having a social life. When working a 100 hours as an analyst that would certainly have to suffer 2)What were you academic results like through your degree? I'm currently in my second year and will be realistically looking at 2.2, 2.2, 2.1 and 2.1 (years 1-4). This summer I'd hope to get an accountancy internship in one of the big 4 followed by an internship next year in one of the large IBs. I know there's more to a candidate than solely their academic credentials + internship but would this stand me well for a BB in London? (Top Irish university, undergrad will be in Business and French) 3) What is it that makes you enjoy this job? I know the paycheck is certainly a bonus but you've said there's more to it than that? Whatever your breakdown between modules is, you need a 2.1 overall. Even if your average is 60% or 61%, that's enough to get you past the minimum requirements and through to interviews. After that it's up to you - they'll take someone with a good business mind and strong communications skills irrespective of whether they average 60 or 78 or 92. I disagree with him. My job is extremely rewarding and i wouldn't swap it for any other industry at the moment. If you want evidence of people enjoying their jobs look at the number of years they spend at their respective firms. Most of the partners at GS are 'home-grown' and have spent 20/30 years sweating away but don't regret it for a second.
Do you realize that in countries like Spain you're seen as an evil person that only wants to get profit and don't have any soul or feelings and probably kicks puppies for fun? If so, how do you feel about it? Yes and understand their anger but it should be re-directed to politicians!
Proof? and of course... how much did you make in 2012 approximately? Approx 600k. How do upload proof e.g. photo evidence?
Sorry, new to reddit!
Do you have free ticket for me? Always looking for handouts. What is it young people say, lolz??
I'm very curious of your opinion of Secretary Geithner's role in LIBOR. Do you think he was guilty? innocent? Thanks! LIBOR scandal is way too complicated to explain at 2.30 am after a few beers. Many active players are implicated and i think he will be seen in the wrong eventually like many others.
What hours do you work? Approx 80 hours a week not incl. flight time I go to festivals in Europe but would love to go it. Do you have free ticket for me?
If the concept and idea of a monetary system was replaced with something better (hypothetically) what would you do? As in for a career or what not since now you are jobless. Resources will always be scarce so someone will have to ensure an optimal allocation. There will always be a market of some kind whether it be a public market or an internal government one.
Hypothetically we could have unlimited power, molecular production, and master matteenergy conversion. Would that change your answer? Good interview question. I'll keep it in mind.
In your view, are there any regulations that could meaningfully alter the moral hazard typified by the 2008-2009 bailout of the financial sector? If so, what might they be? And if not, to what extent does regulatory capture play a role? Regulatory capture is a seriously problem not just in banking e.g. also in the energy business. How do you reduce it? It won't happen unless the public demand it, as everyone with power tends to benefit from it and so they won't make meaningful steps to change anything, i.e. its a win win situation for government and business. However it needs more than just 'occupy movements' but rather i am talking the mass voter population.
Have you seen @gselevator on twitter? if so have you ever contributed/is it legit? Haha yes i have seen it and no its not legit, well at least i think its not. Seriously though the elevator chats can be quite entertaining and revealing.
Do you use a mouse when you work on excel? Are you joking?
No.
In your opinion, do you think the money you make is worth the hell that you go through to make it? I love my job and so i am lucky that the money is not the only motivator.
But yes i love checking my bank balance at an atm.
How can i break into finance with a sub-par gpa? Network and try non BB firms.
A company founded by 100 duck sized horses. or A company founded by 1 horse sized duck? 100 duck sized horses every time. Basic risk management theory - don't put all your eggs in one basket. If that 1 horse sized duck isn't exceptional, your business is going down the tubes.
Prior to the collapse, did you have any idea what was about to happen? It was getting obvious that there was a bubble, but never predicted how great the fallout would be and that in 2013 we would still be suffering
What do you do day to day? I work in the energy field in Europe but don't want to get too specific. Day to day we advise natural resource companies on all things financial such as m&a and financing strategy and then execute on their behalf. So I am on the corporate finance side rather than sales and trading. However I work closely with the syndication and sales guys such as if we are executing an IPO or a follow-on share offering.
I have a buddy who's small but established clean tech company needs money building biodiesel manufacturing plants around the US that run off garbage and wood chips. The technology is actually coming from a company based in Sweden. Can you help him on the money side? Send me a link to their website.
I find clean tech very interesting.
How did you get your job? Did a summer internship then got FT conversion.
What college did you go to? I went to LSE (university in the UK)
What jobs did you work before getting this one? Did another internship whilst at university at an oil company.
At what age did you get this job? 22.
I hear the GS company culture is like " a frat on steriods" true or false? False more than true but depends on team.
Is it as cut throat as I have heard with the bottom 50% of people getting sacked each year to make way for new guys who will probably be sacked the year after? Bottom 5% is more accurate. 7-8% in a bad year, 3-4% in a good year. It's a fine line between 'cut throat' and having a 'healthy competitive atmosphere'. But we'd be out of business very quickly if we kept firing half of our staff every year...
Is there any stock I should look into in 2013? Long term or short term. Short term- African Barrick Gold. The chinese walked away and so the share price plunged and despite serious operational issues, the massive drop has presented a golden buying opportunity.
Long term- anything to avoid inflation, inflation scares the crap out of me and is going to be a big problem in the Uk and elsewhere in the future.
Also buy into soft commodity boom e.g. meat in africa, think zambeef etc if you can find an attractive entry point.
What's the best preparation for an interview with an i-bank? I'm over here in the states and come from a non-target. Read WSO, the forums are full of useful hints and tips especially for non target guys. Depending on what area you are applying for, make sure you know some really good examples and stock pitches as it is amazing how many candidates lack knowledge e.g. if applying for ECM for god sakes know some of the recent IPO's and likewise for equity research have good stock pitches and have conviction when presenting. Best of luck!
How important is your undergrad majogpa I'm double majoring in Econ/Conflict resolution studies with a possible minor in poly sci (depending on how the credits work out) I got a 3.9 gpa last semester but it only brought my overall gpa to a 2.4 because fuck klonopin. I should have at least a 3.0 by graduation, but I'm wondering its worth it to pay for and retake my first semester. Can I have $373 dollars? :D :D I promise only to get moderately drunk with this money. Sorry, a lot of questions, thanks for answering. Oh also, one last thing, all else being equal, is calc I enough math to apply for analyst job? or do I need more? Undergrad course choice is not that important for IBD but obviously for more quant roles you need maths skills Again i am sorry but i am not very clued up on GPA Ok i give you money but first you have to register yourself as a charity so that you can gift aid it and get much more!
Where did you go to college? LSE.
As an undergrad? How hard was it? I hear it's very difficult. Yes, undergrad.
Harder than most places depending on your course. Especially as you are competing with loads of kids from Asia who do extra calculus to relax.
How do you see regulation affecting the overall banking culture? Everything I have been reading and what people have been saying is that the culture is changing. Have you been seeing this? I recommend reading "The Culture of Success" by Lisa Endlich.
Also how do you like the goldman culture? Regulation is hurting us...but: Link to business.financialpost.com
How much total did you make in each of your years at the firm? I don't want to get into specifics.
But for your first three years as an analyst roughly 50k-70k (£ not $)
As an associate 120k-160k.
After that the numbers get exciting.
What tools do you use on a regular basis? Excel, Outlook, Excel, Outlook, Excel, Outlook...powerpoint.
What is the biggest reward of working in IB? Where I study, students with high grades are pushed to chase the prestigious internships firms like GS, MS, etc offer. Their reasoning why they chase these jobs is that they think it is the highest (prestige) in finance they can go or are attracted by the money. It seems shallow to me. What does IB offer that makes your career personally fulfilling? Why didn't you choose to work elsewhere? I find what i do at the front end of the energy sector fascinating. If your interested in business or globalisation or other similiar areas then IBD is pretty much at the cutting edge of it.
Thanks for the reply! When you were first starting out at GS, were you able to balance a personal life aside from your work? Has it gotten easier as you have gained more experience? Would you recommend IB as a field to pursue to your own children today? Thanks again! I'd say during my first 3 years as an analyst the 'balance' was almost non-existent i.e. i was regularly working 100+ hours/week. Since then it's become easier year by year and i think that's true for most. And yes certainly i would encourage my children to pursue it - not that i have any yet.
Where did you go to uni what was your gpa? how many physics majors work their? did you start off as an intern? sorry for rapid firing questions. LSE (london school of economics) - first class honours but don't know how that translates into GPA.
I know only 3/4 physics majors in the office at the moment.
Yes started as an intern.
Do banker run the world? how much political influence do they really have? It works two ways. Some bankers have their fingers in politics in a way they perhaps shouldn't. But equally many politicians have their fingers in banking and can force our hands.
How hard is it for a non ivy leager studying finance to get an entry level job at GS? what about internships? Tough. But with enough internship experience beforehand it's possible.
What do you think of Forex? Would you ever trade on it with your personal money? Difficult to answer - you can trade forex in a million different ways - some ways are more interesting than others. I don't personally trade it, but others forge a very successful career out of it.
What was your bets investment in? (If that's how it works) That's not really my role in IBD.
But outside GS I invested in the Shanghai property market a decade ago or so. My 4 flats there are now worth 10-12 times what they were worth then.
WTF caused the 2010 flash crash? Good question. Nobody knows for sure.
From the link you've provided, I find no.2 the most plausible explanation. But I would also add 6. UBS did something stupid again.
As hardcore capitalists what is your feeling about (management of) banks that seem to live under the impression that profits are for a happy few while losses should be carried by tax-payers? That's not what I believe at all.
And by the way all of us are tax payers too. The top 5% contribute approx. 50% of the government's taxation revenue. So if losses are being 'carried by tax-payers' - that doesn't exclude people in the banking industry by any means.
Matt Levin at Dealbreaker (former GS guy) describes Investment Bankers as "Travelling money salesmen". Do you feel that this description is apt? The operative word in your question is 'former'
Do you think that's how he described investment bankers whilst he was still with the firm?
People tend to get very bitter and sensitive after they get fired. See Gregg Smith for further evidence..
Is an MBA necessary to be competitive when looking for a job or is a B. Comm enough to compete with others when looking for jobs in the industry? Depends on what entry point - if you do an mba then you apply for associate entry whereas b.comm is an undergrad degree and so you apply for analyst roles. If you do a b.comm at a top university/college and get some internships then you should be well placed. Good luck!
Do any of your co-workers frequent Reddit? I imagine less than 0.1%.
Then again 2 people on this feed at least have claimed to be my co-workers, so who knows...
Since you're new to Reddit, what made you want to do an ama here? I'd like to alter the public perception of bankers - not all of us are the obnoxious greedy individuals you read about in the media.
I'm also extremely interested in hearing what non-finance people see as our key economic issues at the moment - this seemed a good way to find out.
Proof? How do i upload photos? i will upload photo proof. Sorry not very experienced with reddit!
I am a senior in high school and I am interested in majoring in either accounting or finance, but I don't think I know enough about either career path to make the best decision, can you explain the large differences the two paths I would go down depending on major, or any advice that may influence my decision that I would not know at this point? What you choose to study doesn't necessarily determine the industry you'll end up in. We have guys in the office who studied history, languages, even medicine. Just go for what interests you the most and focus on getting high marks.
Curious as to what kind of degree you hold/what was your GPA in college? BSc. Economics degree from LSE. First class honours, don't know about gpa
I used to work for the swiss banks and swiss stock market indirectly, and have a few friends in the banking business, including GS and Nakamura in London. What is your personall opinion on prostitution, cocaine, and medication misusage in your business? Also, also what is your stance on GS' questionable involvment in Backpage.com? With regards to backpage.com, the guys on the deal did not do their KYC checks properly. KYC checks are crucial for banks- your reputation and future success is more important than any single customer. Look up riggs bank and the Obiang family and then you'll see!
Possible. But realistically those kind of excuses are given no matter what really happened. For a company as big and powerful as GS I can only take it with a grain of salt. Are you content in the way GS does business from a moral point of view? It's either a pinch of salt, or a grain of sand...
Thanks. I'm not a native english speaker and have not used it regularly for years, so it's gotten pretty shit. Any chance you answer the other questions? Yes, apologies. I think some of our deals have been morally reprehensible in the past. The same goes for any major investment bank. But i think we've done a very good job in 'cleaning up our act' over the past few years and the public has played a large part in that. With any luck we will see a much healthier banking industry soon.
How accurate is what is said on the Twitter handle @GSElevator? It's grossly exaggerated, but not entirely inaccurate...
You guys got trolled hard. A GS IBD guy not knowing how to upload something to the internet? Seriously wtf. Probably some guy from wso who wanted to feel like he was "in". Link to i.imgur.com Just doing some work now! Link to i.imgur.com In case you wondered what Lloyd's signature looked like.
Is there anyway you can help me out, connections or anything, someone I should talk to to get a interview? Can you interview me, I shall forward you my resume! Private message me and we will discuss. Sure i can help you out. I know how tough it is for you guys who are trying to get in!
Any thoughts on the MSI/SSG mini-scandal this week? Yes but won't comment.
Very hush hush.
I also work for GS. Which building are you in? I'm based in PBC. Also IBD, North. Would do an AMA and provide proof. I'm in PBC too, moved from RC quite a few years ago. I'm not sure exactly what sort of proof i'm supposed to provide...?
Would you say you were groomed for this kind of work from a young age? LSE is an elite school. Did you go to elite private schools growing up or were you an exceptional student at a normal school? Yes, Jimmy groomed me from four years old
Do you like your job, or should i say career? Yes. If i did not then i would go and sail around the world again.
From your experience, how relevant is CFA nowdays? Definitely worth doing.
How large was your Xmas bonus and did it get taxed over 50%? See below - total comp was c.600k and yes taxed above 50%
You said in other replies that you were 22 when you got this job and make 600K now. How old are you now, and how long did it take you to get the that salary level? Is it all commission? Was analyst at 22 and then moved up the ranks. Just turned 30, feeling old now!.
Can you give some insight on the business model of Investment banking? (I have no clue to be honest) . And what does a portfolio manager do exactly? Portfolio manager is not IBD. He/she would work in investment management e.g. for blackrock or GSAM or a hedge fund.
I'm currently writing a thesis on the future of rentierism in the gulf with an emphasis on Saudi Arabia. I don't have much of an economic background apart from this, but the international energy market is obviously important to my research. Can you recommend any good (preferably free or low cost) primers and newsletters on the subject? Hmm there are many on energy market but not too sure about rentier specific ones. Will have a think. I did my university thesis on Saudi and so will have a dig around.
How do you live with yourself? Knowing that the company that you work for doesn't give a fuck about you or anybody. All they care about is money. They have ruined america many times over. Seriously, how do you live with yourself? Actually our business is dependent on America and more importantly the rest of the world's prosperity. So actually our interests are nicely aligned.
Link to www.rollingstone.com. Seems to me like your bosses and former bosses don't give a flying fuck about anyone but themselves. Can you name one good thing Sachs has done since you have been there? I think you meant 'don't give a flying fuck" in your comment.
Do you happen to work with quantitative analysts? Depends which deal we are working on. Sometimes we need them, other times we don't.
What's your retirement savings invested in? Property (international and uk), shares mainly through tax efficient ways e.g. isa and EIS, pensions and artwork.
No swiss bank account i am afraid.
"The first thing you'll realize is that they are extremely disciplined. You would never come across a Goldman employee, who would, after two or three beers, say "My colleagues are a bunch of dickheads" From Money and Power William D Cohan. What do you have to say about this? I agree with it.
What advice would you give someone who is interested in going into finance and is currently in university. What would you have liked to do in your time spent at LSE now looking back? Party more! You only live once. You can have that advice for free.
Thanks for the AMA. Do you know anybody I could speak with regarding interviewing and internship opportunities? Private message me.
Doing an AMAA are you putting your job at risk for releasing company secrets/opinions whatever? I've not released a single company secret.
Edit: added an A to AMA. There's nothing in my contract to say I can't express my own opinions.
What do the hopes and dreams of Americans taste like? Raspberry sorbet, in my opinion
What is your feeling on the separation of traditional banking and investment banking as is proposed by the FSA? I think overall it's sensible - Barclays being the best example of why they should be separated.
At GS specifically of course we're not involved in traditional retail banking at all so it's not the most pressing issue for us at the moment.
You mentioned 80 hour work weeks. Could you explain the timeline for your typical work day. Do you work 7 days per week? Is your work more project based where you go non stop and have some time off between projects? There's no typical working day - some days are 18 hours and others are 12. Depends entirely what stage of a deal we are at. Generally I work 5/6 days a week, but keep in email contact with the office 24/7.
Yes, entirely project based. But if we are doing our jobs properly there's not much 'time off' in between.
I'm currently on target for a 2:1 or a first at university in my economics degree. But due to a slight hiccup in my a-levels, in which i got A* A C, still managed to go to a top 10 university but do they look at the C, which was in maths. Your university grades are definitely more important. If you do well in a mathematical module at uni that will allay any fears they have about an A-level grade.
Do they look at a-level grades and expect a minimum maths grade? I'm not bad at maths by any means, just an unfortunate anomaly in the exam season. Which uni are you at and what do you study?
Manchester and economics BA - but i have econometric modules and another mathematical module for 2nd year. Any chance of switching it to a BSc? Immediately reassures employers about your quantitative skills..
Hello there, first of all I want to thank you for doing this AMA. I am a dutch college student and currently I'm writing an essay about the BRIC countries. I used your book to write down predictions of their economic future, and I'd like to ask: did you participate in writing that book? Are you referring to Jim O'Neill's book? I have a copy on my desk, but no I wasn't involved in writing it.
What do the guys at GS think about @gselevator? See same q&a earlier on!
How often do interns get recommended to come back? In a good year, approx. 50% of an intern class will get hired.
In a bad year (2008 for example) perhaps only 10% or 20%
Any opinion on Nautilus Minerals? Can't comment on that company i am afraid.
How do you feel about manipulating the currency markets to screw over the average retail trader? I don't know what you are talking about.
Have you ever seen American Psycho? Yes.
I am going to copy and paste this in an email and send it around my team. You will famous at the firm, well at least in my team in london anyway! Yes of course i fucking do. The future is inevitable. Chuck Klosterman i like your name. That would also be an awesome interview question! And i give them 5 secs to answer.
I highly doubt GS interns work for free. I've almost never heard of an internship in finance that didn't pay -- most firms I've encountered usually pay the same base wage as the first year full timer positions you are interning for. Interns in front office at GS in london get circa £42k pro rata. So not bad for a summer job and remember no tax as they are below threshold across the year!
Gold Mansachs. Not sure about that one.
I prefer Goldman Snachs, the name of our canteen.
Yes, Jimmy groomed me from four years old But yes went to a private boarding school before. Widening the diversity of applicants in IB is a key target for HCM.
What is the future of investment banking in a new world order where both governments and the people are fed up with the excesses that led us into this credit crisis. The industry is always evolving, that's what makes it an exciting industry to be in. I imagine it will take us a good few years to fully regain the trust of certain clients, but ultimately if this whole saga causes us to readdress our methods and practices to improve our service then in the long run it's a positive outcome.
PS. Do you not think people should be fed up with the governments too, as well as the banks?
Not OP but I can answer this as a 2012 intern who got converted for Programming. A Math degree is a good +. There are 2 ways. Either join in as a programmer, show your merit and change departments, ie move to Quant side. Other option is to get a MBA, and join the I-Banking dept you want. What's your name?
Do you have any books or resources you'd recommend the layman for learning investment skills (i.e. the wealthy barber) I ask because i feel there is a lot of crap out there and would like to genuinely learn. I have never heard of the wealthy barber.
