1  Economy / Trading Discussion / Basic indicator that are very helpful and you may don't know yet... on: September 28, 2023, 03:00:26 AM
So here's the list:

MACD = Buy and Sell Signals
RSI= shows when price is overbought and oversold
Bollinger Bands= volatility levels
9EMA= Short term trends
21EMA= Entry and Exit points
50 EMA= helpful for Stop loss placement
200 EMA= Long-term trend
VWAP= Intraday Breakouts
ADX= strength of the trend

Key note: Just because it is listed does mean you should use it all. All have their purpose and you can just use what resonates with your strategy whether you are a short-term or swing trader. You can just use EMA for signals and confirm it with buy/sell of MACD. The most important is you have a sample data that you're strategy is working and backtested.

2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Probability is not the reason for your loss on: September 18, 2021, 03:37:05 PM

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT PROBABILITY IS JUST A GUIDE THAT WILL INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. Its not a cheat-code that will guarantee your win every now and then.

I've seen people blaming probabilities, wether they put their trust and still lost, or lose all of their trust to probability just because that one game didn't play like what they want it to be.

Use probability wisely, and you will surely appreciate and honor its abilities.
3  Other / Politics & Society / Online Misinformation on: August 08, 2021, 05:58:12 AM

Misinformation is widely spread in these era as the previous generation tend to believe anything they see on the internet.

"Look at this plant, it can heal anykinds of disease", yet there's no supporting data to defend the claims.

"Look, they became magnetic after getting vaccinated", yet the one who is supposed to be magnetic is just sweaty

"Look at this, the government is in cooperation with the other governments for worldwide genocide", yet years later, nothing ever happened

And the most annoying is that, typically your aunt/s or uncle/s are the one spreading this to your family group conversation. Like they are saying "Look at this, I am concerned about you guys so I will spread nonsense that may help you"
4  Other / Politics & Society / Anti-Vax Nurse's Attempt To Prove COVID Vaccines Make People Magnetic Backfires on: June 15, 2021, 04:30:02 AM
So this news still makes me laugh for few days now

On Tuesday, an anti-vax Ohio nurse attempted to prove that COVID-19 vaccines make people magnetic, but she failed.



Quote
Registered nurse Joanna Overholt, testifying before the Ohio House health committee about what she said were potential coronavirus vaccine dangers, tried to use her own body as proof.

Overholt said she heard during lunch that vaccines cause magnetism in humans, so she decided to prove her point on herself by attempting to show how a bobby pin and a key would stick to her exposed skin.

Overholt said:

"Explain to me why the key sticks to me. It sticks to my neck, too. So, yeah, if somebody could explain this, that would be great."

The nonmagnetic aluminum key actually fell off her neck as soon as she removed her hand.

For other news reference with video:

Nurse uses key, hairpin to try to prove she is magnetic from vaccine during Ohio House hearing
An anti-vax nurse tried, and failed, to make a key stick to her neck as proof that COVID-19 vaccines make you magnetic

She actually, ACTUALLY decided to do this in the STATE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE.

While I always noticed that USA has the most loosen restrictions when it comes to owning firearms. I just happened to find out that in singapore, even carrying of pepper spray for self-defense is illegal.

How come that Singapore can ban all these weapons and not be a den of criminals, And USA can't.

6  Other / Politics & Society / Do not trust everything you see in the internet on: May 09, 2021, 09:27:36 AM

No matter how real it looks, don't trust everything you see, seek for further validations in different sources for clarifications and proofs.

We have this topic proposal held last month and some of my mates topic is based on what they find in the internet, and our professor quickly dismissed the topics that is THEORETICALLY IMPOSSIBLE. Like PERPETUAL MOTION Machine (Unlimited Energy) that is not possible because of the 1st and 2nd law of thermodynamics and many more.

This applies to other courses and other topics so beware.

Internet seeks views, and they can do anything for views.

Russian Court bans Isekai manga and anime

Russian Court bans Isekai manga and anime for the very reason of, it promotes reincarnation after death that is better than what we are living right now.

"PROMOTING Reincarnation" I'm awe with that to be honest as who even believed in that, are they taking the Memes seriously that they ban isekai for it? I can't understand the logical reasoning

Death note (an anime) has been also ban before for "violence".

Notable Arrests After the Riot at the Capitol

This may be a good laugh, as the statements are somehow funny so take a look. especially this about Mr. Evans

"Mr. Evans resigned from the West Virginia House of Delegates on Jan. 9 after participating in the storming of the Capitol"
"Mr. Evans, a Republican who was elected to the West Virginia House in November, filmed himself entering the Capitol. “We’re in!” he said in his video. “We’re in! Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!”"

US Capitol Stormers Are Now On No-Fly List And Crying At Airports.

Quote
In the video that was likely recorded at Dulles International Airport outside Washington DC on Friday, a man in a black muscle shirt, shorts and a white baseball cap is having a full-blown meltdown, apparently after being told he could not board his flight home.

He said in the video:

This is what they do to us. They kicked me off the plane, they called me a f***ing terrorist and they want to f***ing ruin my life!

A woman tries to diffuse the situation, telling the distraught man:

Sir, please calm down. I was kicked off Delta earlier.

The woman, dressed in a red puffer jacket and a black headband, appears to be the same passenger was who seen in another viral video being removed from a flight while ranting about freedom of speech.

If you want a news article regarding this topic, here you go

Videos of passengers being removed from planes do not indicate federal no-fly status yet, TSA says.
Quote
Videos of belligerent passengers at airports — some donning pro-Trump outfits — being forced off planes or denied boarding are circulating widely on social media, with many users describing the scenes as airport officials informing people that participated in the Capitol riot that they're on a no-fly list. But that's not necessarily the case.

Though at least one member of Congress and airline worker unions have called for known riot participants to be put on the FBI-managed no-fly list, which is designed to prevent known and suspected terrorists from getting airline tickets, it's not clear if that step has been taken.

The FBI did not respond to a request for comment.

Federal officials and DC police are still working to identify and track down many of the rioters, though at least 20 federal criminal defendants have been arrested across the country.

When a person is put on the federal no-fly list, they would be stopped or undergo additional screening before going through a TSA checkpoint, according to the TSA.

---------------------------------------------------

Its funny how someone says "You're treating me like a black person".

How tables have turned. Its pretty fascinating to see that these terrorists are now being punished for their sins, and this is just the tip of the punishments prepared for them Cheesy.

"The UK has drawn up plans that would allow patients to be given different coronavirus vaccines for the first and second doses under certain circumstances, a move that highlights a widening rift in public health policy between the UK and rest of the West."

“For individuals who started the schedule and who attend for vaccination at a site where the same vaccine is not available, or if the first product received is unknown, it is reasonable to offer one dose of the locally available product to complete the schedule.”

"Mary Ramsay, Head of Immunisations at PHE, said mixing Covid-19 vaccines was not recommended. “If your first dose is the Pfizer vaccine you should not be given the AstraZeneca vaccine for your second dose and vice versa."

“There may be extremely rare occasions where the same vaccine is not available, or where it is not known what vaccine the patient received,” Dr Ramsay said. “Every effort should be made to give them the same vaccine, but where this is not possible it is better to give a second dose of another vaccine than not at all.”
----------------------------------------

I've watched this news a while ago, and it is said that there is not much of a study regarding the effects of the mixing of two different products in a patient. The uncertainty of this action may severely damage the morality of the peoples in the UK to accept the vaccines. Given that there are many people who don't believe in it in the first place.

The action may be in the hands of the government of the UK but still, I'm curious about what might be the possible effect if these two vaccines were injected into a patient.
12  Other / Politics & Society / THE TROLLEY DILEMMA on: November 22, 2020, 01:19:28 PM
The trolley dilemma is a famous dilemma used commonly in psychology classes for a healthy discussion, arguments, and debates. This was also used in our University which takes long hours of discussion and yet we're not finished with it. I would like to have this same discussion in this thread for it was a great topic for a healthy discussion, and also relating to the scenarios of society on how one thinks and acts depending on the situation.

The trolley problem was first introduced by the philosopher Philippa Foot.

Quote
"A runaway trolley is heading down the tracks toward five workers who will all be killed if the trolley proceeds on its present course. Adam is standing next to a large switch that can divert the trolley onto a different track. The only way to save the lives of the five workers is to divert the trolley onto another track that only has one worker on it. If Adam diverts the trolley onto the other track, this one worker will die, but the other five workers will be saved."

-This version of trolley problem was copied from https://www.theguardian.com/science/head-quarters/2016/dec/12/the-trolley-problem-would-you-kill-one-person-to-save-many-others

_______________________________________________________________________________ _________

My take for this dilemma is that I would rather not take an action and let the trolley hit his destination. This way, I would be release from my conscience that I killed a random person with my own hand, and my own action.
13  Other / Politics & Society / Expectations on: November 20, 2020, 03:33:35 PM
This is thread is about politics and SOCIETY, so in this one, we'll be discussing society's expectation towards the youth.

Society's expectation towards the youth varies directly with the era we are currently living. Youths are pretty much expected to improve and develop something that was not been seen, or innovated ideas for better living. These expectations are always will be in fact, consciously or subconsciously in the minds of anyone, also for me in the future.

So my question is, what are your expectations towards the youth in this era especially to those who are in college/university?

I want you all to state if you're a student, adult, or a parent if you're gonna reply on this thread regarding your stand.

The chief executive of the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer has warned that not enough Covid-19 vaccines will be available for everyone in the world to be inoculated until the end of 2024 at the earliest.

Quote
Adar Poonawalla, CEO of the Serum Institute of India, has warned that it will take at least four years to make enough Covid-19 vaccines for the entire world, according to an interview in the Financial Times.

Quote
In an interview to Financial Times, Adar Poonawalla, chief executive of Serum Institute, the world’s largest vaccine producer, has said it will take till the end of 2024 for everyone in the world to be inoculated. Poonawalla told FT that pharmaceutical firms the world over were not ramping up capacity fast enough to deliver the vaccine faster than that.

Quote
"It's going to take four to five years until everyone gets the vaccine on this planet," Poonawalla said.

_______________________________________________________

Many countries believe that Covid 19 vaccines will save them from the situation, thus making some sort of unclear, and unconcise plan to slowdown, and fight the virus.

This news might actually cause panic in our world, especially to those who believes in the vaccine.

In my thoughts, this statements by the CEO was released for different countries and its citizens to not get their hopes up and expect an immediate delivery of the vaccine once the trial is all done. But it's just a way of my own thinking seeing that there are many countries conducting research about the vaccine.

Is this a strategy of the company to increase the price with regards to the high demand of the vaccine throughout the world? what's your thought?
15  Other / Off-topic / ADVICE: Build your own PC after the quarantine on: September 24, 2020, 02:47:11 PM
Having your own high-performing pc is becoming a necessity these days, given that during this crisis, you have nowhere to go but to stay inside the house and do your thing, especially schools/universities perform their classes online. The higher the specs of your pc, the higher the chance you can get on board with your class. But the prices of the parts drastically increased especially if you are one of the people who buy in your local shops. I recently discovered this after I spotted the part I've been wanting to then seeing it increases by 10%. I have confirmed that its not only in our local shop, but also outside the city where I lived. Yet if you really really need it right now, better buy from legit online shops and get the highest specs you can from your savings.
