  1. Tigers don't trade. Tigers has claws and eat wildboars. Can't read even, would be stupid to try to trade. Do you like to look at yourself as a tiger? A predator that kills and eats others? Little like a nine year old and kind of mental.

  2. Hey David, maybe you could do a blog on Nat gas Futures and how they are priced from day to day. I live in Canada and notice the in early moring trading that Nat gas Futures can be up or down and can set the trend for the day based off early morning trade which makes no sense to me. Trading Nat gas feels like gambling, if you guess right you can make money.

  3. I originally planned to invest in the US-Market for the next 5-10 Years.
    But the market seems to be dangerously overvalued and could take years to recover after a crash.
    Is trading a good alternative to investing?
