Good graphs/graphics that tell the story of how the current younger generation is off to a slow, bogged down financial start compared to my generations start at their age range. It may well result in today's younger generation not becoming more sucessful financially than our, Boomer generation if the trend continues. The funny thing about trends is that they rarely continue in a straight line without change for either the better, worse and/or a rollercoaster ride. Most 80 year periods of American history feature horrible financial times as well as glorious financial times. This younger generation now faces increased debt burden during a stagnant, slow or declining period which if history serves as a guide then this slow, declining, stagnant period will continue for another 10 years to be followed by war and then 30 years of continuous growth.
If this younger generation faces increased debt burden during a stagnant, slow or declining period which if history serves as a guide then this slow, declining, stagnant period will continue for another 10 years. If so, this younger generation may well be similar to others that have been called the 'lost generation'. The 10 years is not a certain period but similar to the Great Depression generation. A worse period approached 30 years from 1870 to 1900. Japan now is 23 years into a similar decline and cultural decline plus a population decline similar to Russia [see my Japan is dying threads unlawflcombatnt.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=globalization&action=display&thread=10359 ].

unlawflcombatnt: OldUser-the sign-in area is in the dark area immediately under the red section that says Economic Populist Forum. It's almost impossible to see, unless you know where to look. This was ProBoards idea, not mine.

jeffolie: One might short a bull ETF to gain the decay but this requires a margin position subject to changes imposed by the exchanges & brokers

jeffolie: Holding a stop loss in these algo dominated markets almost always means the algos will hit your stops

jeffolie: Even so, these leveraged ETFs do not create margin calls nor expiration dates thus allowing one to hold indefinitely

jeffolie: Yes, the ETF features fading/leveraged decay because the futures and/or options used decay plus the administrative costs rise the decay, declining value ... I accept this as a cost and feature of all ETFs that purchase futures/options to maintain price

mimzy: jeffolie ~ I've been reading/lurking you for a year or three now and was wondering if your could you explain how you overcome quantum fading/leveraged decay in your ETF short position of the DJIA?
