ace comando: Well, it took me several days and a lot of code writing to sift through the millions of achieved pages on the Wayback Machine achieves. Was about to give up when a colleague gave me mining script to look at all archived pages whether displayed or not. And Feb 24, 2017 19:44:10 GMT -6
unlawflcombatnt: I've now changed the colors on the board to something more readable. At least now readers can find the sign-in tab. Jul 6, 2014 22:58:23 GMT -6
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. Jun 12, 2014 11:52:53 GMT -6

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 Oct 26, 2013 13:26:07 GMT -6
jeffolie: Holding a stop loss in these algo dominated markets almost always means the algos will hit your stops Oct 26, 2013 13:20:09 GMT -6
jeffolie: Even so, these leveraged ETFs do not create margin calls nor expiration dates thus allowing one to hold indefinitely Oct 26, 2013 13:17:52 GMT -6
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 Oct 26, 2013 13:15:38 GMT -6
mimzy: Sorry, here is the article http://blog.quantumfading.com/2009/06/01/leveraged-decay/ I don't post that often, sometimes computers get away from me b4 I can edit. Oct 25, 2013 20:49:11 GMT -6
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? Oct 25, 2013 20:46:26 GMT -6
