Sorry, I though I was talking with someone who knows the basics. Let me explain:
If you make a voluntary choice, that is not using violence or thread of violence, you are not distorting the singals. You are peacefully cooperating.
If you foce people to make some decisions or deprive them of options using violence or thread of violence then you are distorting the signals in the market because people is not choosing according to their needs but forced.
Holy crap what a load of bull.
You expect peacefull cooperation in a place where you make money off of other peoples bad decisions?
"Con-gra-tu-lations, good Sir. You've just aquired all my moneys. I'll hand them over to you with a smile on my face. I bid you farewell."
I think it's you who doesn't understand the basics.
free market = dog eats dog.
Signals, the way you describe them, are nonsense.
You expect the market to tell you "hey, now you can make money".
But that money comes from someone else who has to lose it.
That person does not want to lose their money and that makes them a direct competitor of your profits.
You have no 'right' to a certain 'signal'. The signals you talk of are just observations in certain situations. They are not universal laws of physics!
If you think there should be some signals that will tell you the one and only correct way then you have no idea what is going on.
Signals are observations and NEED INTERPRETATION which is your responsibility, not the markets.
Demanding some form of undistorted signals is like demanding a pair of aces at a blackjack table.
It is just not how it works.
