The comedy how I lost all my money in two hours

I'm trading for 11 months with pretty good success.
I never traded metals and forex before, just stocks. Today when gold started to consolidate at the last hour, I decided to scalp short it with a large amount, so I opened 100 lots. I haven't realised, in forex 100 (lots) doesn't mean "100 pcs", because I used to stocks and I went full retard without knowledge.
Seconds later, I realised it means 10 million dollars (1 lot = 100.000, and I had 500x leverage).
It moved up a bit and immediately I was down £4000. I scared as fuck and rather than closing the position quickly I hoped maybe I could close break even.
The market closed, and I waited for the Asian session. The gold popped like never before, and I lost all my life savings (£55000) in less than two hours. (including the 1-hour break between sessions).
If I count that I lost all my earnings as well, I lost around £85000.
Here is the margin call
IC Markets closed my position partially in every 1-2 minutes until I shut it myself at £35.
You know the rest of the story. I'm depressed, crying and shouting with myself.
Yes, I know I was stupid, thanks. I just wanted to share this with you.

Edit: WOW THANK YOU, GUYS! I haven't expected this, but you help me.
Many of you asked the same questions, I answer it here:
- I live in Europe, and we usually trade CFD's, not futures.
- Currency in GBP.
- As you can see, this account made on IC Markets. They not just allowing you a 500x leverage, it's the default.
- You can ask me why I went against the market. Because gold is way oversold? Because I expected institutions would sell their shares before gold is hitting £2000, leaving retails hanging there. Also, as I said, I wanted to scalp, not riding the gold all the way down. If I had a loss of £100, I would close the position immediately. But when I saw the £4000, my heart is stopped, and my brain just freezes.
- I went for a revenge trade with my last £2k, and I don't have to say what happened. I uninstalled the app, and I give up trading for a while.
- Again, in the past months, I was cautious, I lost a significant sum in March, but I managed to recover. Made consistent gains, always with SL. This is just an example of how easy is to fuck up everything you did.
- I didn't come here for some shiny digital medals. I can't tell about my losses to anyone who I know in real life. I would make a fool of myself.
- Anyone who attacking me that it is a scam. Well, think what you want. I feel terrible and the last thing is to answer all the messages saying "You fucking karma whore". I don't give a shit about karma.

[Discussion] Theory for why the SF1000 is this bad, and why Binotto does NOT deserve to be fired just yet

Hello everyone, I'm back
This time instead of ranting shitting on Ferrari, I've had a week to think and I'm just going to write down some thoughts I have about the current Ferrari situation, and I'm curious to get everyone's opinions on this. What else can we do before the race weekend starts right?
The question on hand is very simple. 'Why does this year's Ferrari suck this bad?' In the comment section of this post we discussed reasons for why Mercedes has dominated just about every regulation change, but we didn't talk in depth about Ferrari.
Now, I'm not talking about the general "Why is Ferrari not winning titles?" question, because that question has been answered many times over. Ferrari is inefficient, don't have the best engineering talent (Merc poached just about the best from every team over the years), and arguably don't have the corporate desire to actually win in the same way Mercedes does.
I'm more curious about the pace (rather lack thereof) of the SF1000. Yes, we know Ferrari as a team is not as well run and organized as Mercedes, but how could they have built a car this bad? A car that barely makes it into Q3.
Right off the bat, let me fully and entirely acknowledge that yes, the size of the pace drop is purely due to the illegal as fuck engine being neutered by the new monitoring initiatives. According to some sources, the Ferrari engine is allegedly ~40-45HP down from the Mercs and ~10-15 down from Renault and Honda. There is absolutely zero doubt about that and anyone who's still stuck on the "high drag tho" reason is just fooling themselves. All Ferrari engine teams don't just suddenly eat crow over a winter.
However, questions about the SF1000 popped up way before it ever hit the track. It seemed like the design team simply stuck some downforce generating bits on the SF90 and called it a day. And then the same car showed up to Austria, almost 6 months later than the car unveiling.
Ferrari have a history of throwing the towel early to work on future regs. Take a look at the 2017 Ferrari. They did exactly that. They completely abandoned the 2016 car to focus entirely on the 2017 car. And they succeeded by any metric. It was a massive step up in performance, giving them a car capable of winning the title (Yes the TP was Arrivabene and we love attributing the entirety of the car's performance to the TP, but pretty much the entire team from 2017 is still at Ferrari today. Including Binotto himself. So the Ferrari aero team nailed that aero reg change. (You could make the argument that actually it was James Allison designing that car, but I'm not as sold, as he left very early. Either way, basically the rest of the team bar Allison remained)
You're Ferrari. You lost 2019. Hell, you lost every single season during the hybrid Era. Internally, I'd bet Ferrari is convinced Mercedes is winning because they had a head start on 2014 (rather than due to org structure advantages) and have subsequently been 2 steps ahead of everyone else (and there's actually solid evidence this is indeed the case. Merc is known for starting development on future cars insanely early because it's clearly they're going to win by mid-late season usually).
Considering all of the above, there's also one year of regulations left, in the final year of no budget cap spending. Wouldn't it make perfect sense to throw absolutely everything at the new aero regs? To get the kind of early Mercedes-style advantage which carries through multiple seasons? And there's some evidence Ferrari did exactly that. The SF1000 is literally the 2019 car with a few extra bits of downforce attached. I know Ferrari is a meme, but they're not that stupid. It would also explain why they seem so lost currently.
Another key point is that engine development costs are NOT included in the future budget cap. Which means, in theory, Ferrari can go balls out on 2021 aero for one season, and have time to catch up with the engine later, as it's not affected by the budget cap. I know the staff and facilities are already in place so it's not like they pulled engine staff onto the aero team, but they may have received priority in other ways.
(An aside question, I understand FIA is limiting the number of engine upgrades a team brings, but not the size of the upgrade right? How would this help save costs if a team can just spend the same amount of money on the engine and then bring a bigger update at season start?)
Now, I have no idea if any of this is true. But logically speaking, this seems to fit the events that we know happened well. In chronological order-
  1. Ferrari decides to throw absolutely everything at the new 2021 (at the time) regulation overhaul
  2. They learn their engine will be castrated
  3. They design the SF1000 by adding downforce (whether they knew their engine would be neutered doesn't really change anything). At this point Ferrari has no intention of allocating any resources towards the SF1000, as evidenced by the fact that they didn't bring any upgrades to Australia, and then brought the same car to Austria some 4 months later.
  4. Coronavirus hits, everything gets shut down. Ferrari learns in the middle of lockdown that 2021 reulations are posponed until 2022.
  5. They suddenly realize they will be racing with this car for two seasons, and scramble to understand why the car was bad during testing. Note that, Binotto said "our concept fundamentally sucks and our direction changed" very late, weeks before the Austrian GP. Why did they wait this long if they knew they had issues in Barcelona?
  6. They scramble to come up with upgrades to the car, which they don't even have ready by Austria. Their pace turns out so bad, they realize they cant limp around as the 5th best team for two years, so switch back to working on the SF1000.
I'll add that this pattern did not appear in any of the other mid-large teams. Yes Corona hit Italy particularly early, but this would have only taken away 1-2 weeks at most from Ferrari relative to the other teams. We also saw that in testing, every other team seemed to make significant progress while Ferrari literally brought the SF90 with a few extra bits. Mercedes, RB, Mclaren brought (relatively) massive evolutions on their previous cars while Ferrari didn't.
So to summarize, this is the current position of Ferrari (if this theory holds).
  1. Ferrari have made a LOT of progress on their 2022 car design after dumping all of their resources into the reg change, just like they've done numerous times in the past.
  2. Something fundamentally broken with the current aero design, and arguably the entire aero program. (Aka their CFD program sucks and their designs don't perform on the track like they do in CFD).
  3. Worst engine on the grid
Now what Ferrari really needs to get out of this mess is a re-org to mimic the Mercedes structure. This is the highly political Ferrari we're talking about, so, let's face it, that has no chance of happening.
Now, of course, without a doubt Binotto is responsible for this, and probably does deserve to be fired. However, if Ferrari want to turn this ship around their best chance out of this mess probably IS Binotto. CFD issues need to be solved before 2022. And the person/people who are the most likely to solve these issues are the very people who caused them in the first place, because they are the people who best understand them. Binotto is also an engine specialist by trade, so even though he's ultimately responsible for the dirty tricks of 2019, he's the cleanest dirty shirt in the hamper in terms of who might actually put the right pieces in place to fix the engine. Bringing in a brand new TP right now would be a nightmare, unless it's one of their own and no current Ferrari department heads fit the bill particularly well.
It's also possible nobody at Ferrari knows what they're doing and they just suck. But to suck to such an extent that spending ~$450 million gets them an SF90 with a few bits of downforce seems extreme even for Ferrari. They've never sucked this bad in history IIRC.
TL;DR- Ferrari probably already committed balls deep to the 2022 regs, and even though Binotto is ultimately responsible for Ferrari being as shit as they are now, he's likely their best bet of getting them out of this shithole. Ferrari needs stability. Especially now, with the entire team structure changing due to the budget cap, and this many fires that need to be put out.

Sharing With the Community

LONG TIME lurker, first time posting. Profitable trader here wondering how I’d give something back to this community without saying, “buy x company at $1 and sell at $1.2”, or giving up the secrets of my strategy.
I’m from a banking/arbitrage trading/risk analysis family...would anyone be interested in information around those areas in regard to day-trading?
EDIT: I’ll have a bit of a write up tomorrow and stick it up here. Thinking I’ll post something on the arbitrage topic first as that’s probably the most interesting/provocative.
EDIT2: Alright, here goes.
Instead of an arbitrage specific write up I want to talk about something else first—inspired by TheLoneComic’s comment. This is just what came out when I sat down to write. If it’s well received I’ll keep writing. This will probably be most beneficial to beginner traders with small capital and individuals struggling with stop losses...I can also go into more detail on this post, I’m typing this up within the time frame I have.
Arbitrage traders (also my background) don’t think the world of day traders as individuals—or at least ALL the traders I know don’t. Saying that, the trading world as a whole LOVE day-traders. The brokers do as they get commissions and everyone else does as 80-90% of you lose your money to the swirling pool of money in the market. This dislike or “looking down the nose” isn’t all warranted, I’ll admit, but the trading world has to be filled with many losers—many of whom, unfortunately, are just average Joes or Janes trying to free themselves from the wage-cage. This is a noble pursuit but most people shouldn’t, or don’t, require leverage to be profitable and are in fact endangering their capital by doing so—not to mention cutting their career short. This probably the most mind-boggling aspect of the typical day-trader. The term, “trade within your means” springs to mind.
The main point of contention within my arbitrage world is those hung up in the world of technical analysis and how reliable it actually is. Keep in mind these are firms with super-computers that execute and exit trades in the blink of an eye, searching all day across entire sectors for price disparity. There’s little room for human error and emotion...Arbitrage companies are incredibly profitable for this reason.
I don’t really want to get in a debate over TA as I know how emotionally invested people are in it. I do want to get beginners to rethink how they buy and sell. I will say this, broadly speaking, TA subscribers tend to mistake their success on patterns when the real winner is discipline and strategy—that’s why I like to read this sub. if you don’t have these you will lose...the same is true for all areas of business. We could easily transplant these people into any industry and I’m sure they’d thrive.
I believe there’s a missing link in the arsenal of the day-trader. Particularly for the beginner. And this missing link is combining Share Trading and CFD trading. This is a powerful stepping stone for those who want to wade into the rough ocean of CFD. Especially because it will help you better understand risk management and price movement.
I’d like to propose a strategy to the 80-90% of strugglers and losers—not the disciplined with sound strategy as they don’t need much help. I believe this is a far better way to enter into the world of trading and will give you a better understanding of leverage and when/how to better utilise it.
First, we’re going to start trading within our means, as protecting our capital is vital. We’re going to do this by combining Share trading and CFD trading. Specifically, we need to look for markets wherein there’s no restrictions on trading both CFD and buying shares outright. This means you’ll also need a broker that allows you to do both.
Next step is your strategy, PLEASE NOTE, you’re still going to develop your own strategy and work on your discipline so spend plenty of time on this...the only thing that is going to change is how you BUY/SELL.
Don’t mean to do this to you all but I’ll have to leave this one as a to be continued...I’ve run out of time and will continue later today should there still be interest.
I’ve got another short period here to continue on.
I would like to share what I believe is the true value in leveraging for a day-trader and I’ll tie it in to where I left off. My algorithm will spit out roughly 20 strong trades a day across many different markets. Some of these trades will require being open for several days, weeks, or even a month (I know, this takes them outside the realm of a “day trade”). Herein lies a risk of capital being tied up in multiple long term holds and open positions. Two things here on why I like to actually use buying stocks as a DT strategy: brokers usually charge you a fee to leave a position open over multiple days...this cost adds up—especially if like me you set a price target and don’t exit a trade until it is hit. And secondly, clear stop loss positions are not always clear. So my solution was to just BUY shares of the stock, commodity, or ETFs if I’d projected the trade to be longer than a day or if I couldn’t find a solid stop-loss point (please note my average position size is $15,000-$20,000 per trade so I don’t need the leverage to make money).
I could write a whole essay on hedging, as it can be very powerful when combined with this method correctly. It’s roll to play is so important that I will have to divulge more at some point...maybe in a future post.
I use leverage mostly to hedge and play some short game while I’ve got my longer term, bigger plays in the ground. Leverage is not a method I use for playing large positions for quick money. I think this is a far better attitude for beginners as the emphasis is always going to be on price targets and exit points, risk management, and money management/allocation.
More to come.
To summarise my viewpoint, those seeking to enter the world of trading should first learn to share trade and hedge. Learn to walk before you run. Not only will you gain better experience, be more controlled and methodical, be less frustrated and have a lower chance of bottoming your account, you’ll also have another weapon in your arsenal for when you decide to use leverage. Learning this skill will also allow you to understand when you can increase your stake/risk.
Some parts of this have been left a bit vague due to either time constraints or they require a thread/discussion of their own for further explanation. If there is anything I need to dive into a bit deeper please let me know. I’d like to post another thread on hedging and a “turning $1000 into $2000” play-by-play if such things are allowed? Also thinking about posting some of my algorithm’s picks, price entry, and price target. I like discussing such things but don’t have a very wide circle outside of work to share with at the moment.

UK Guide to US Options Trading

This is guide to US options trading from the UK, because I've seen countless requests of people browsing in /ukinvesting, /options, /wallstreetbets etc. about this.
First thing's first - no part of this post is to be taken as financial advice. It is a guide on how to start options trading from the UK. Options/CFD trading is a high-risk activity and most retail traders lose money.

1. CFDs vs. Options

So getting started, options and contracts for difference (CFDs) are both financial derivatives - they derive their values from an underlying security e.g. stock, indices, currency, commodities. Long story short, CFDs do not have an expiration and options do; and at the option expiration date, options give the opportunity to buy/sell the underlying (e.g. stock) at the agreed strike price. CFDs are highly directional (delta) trades where positions require ongoing financing fees by a broker, whereas options strategies allow the trader to trade time decay (theta) as well as market volatility (vega). Options provide greater flexibility in trading strategies (time/volatility trading as well as direction); however, due to this, the more complex strategies can be difficult to understand.
Spread betting allows a literal directional bet of an underlying by a certain date. It is most similar naked options - i.e. if your position moves against you enough, your broker may forcibly close your position unfavourably and/or margin call you for extra cash ("you can lose more than your initial deposit"). With options/CFDs, you can define risk by specifying a profitability range (spreads) instead to avoid this scenario. Due to spread betting being so close to gambling, it is treated as such in the UK in terms of taxation - gains are tax free. I will also add here that CFDs/options can also be used in this manner (gambling, with subsequent margin calls etc.), and that CFD brokers tend to understate the risks of these strategies, whilst almost all options brokers require elevated permissions to seek out this level of risk - this is because blowing through margin presents a risk to the broker and they would rather have commissions without the risks of the brokerage going bust. The lowest level of permissions still allows you to buy extremely highly leveraged OTM options without margin, as your max loss is limited to the amount you paid for those options.

2. Brokers

Given that options effectively open up two additional aspects of trading (time/volatility) and require additional regulatory oversight compared to CFDs/spreadbetting, there is basically no options market in the UK - the only brokers at this time are IG/Saxo, and they only do vanilla options on Forex/Indices/Commodities. Everyone else only does CFDs and/or stock (T212, Freetrade, IG, Plus500 etc.). To engage in true stock options trading, the only choice is to open an international/US brokerage account.
The two that are accessible to UK investors are Interactive Brokers (IB) and TastyWorks. Both are reputable brokers and have strong insurances for cash & securities held with them.

3. Opening an account

I will walk through some of the aspects of funding and operating a TastyWorks account from the UK, as this is my recommendation if you're here looking for a cheap way to get started.
Opening a free account on TastyWorks is easy as they are used to foreign traders (form filling within 20-60 mins - you will need a photo of proof of ID and address). It typically takes 1 day for cash accounts and 2-3 days for margin accounts to be ready for funding. My referral link if you feel this guide deserves the effort is: (mods, happy to remove this is this guide is deemed low effort)
The account types are:

4. Funding the Account

Since trading US options is done in USD, the account must be funded in USD. As international traders, deposits must be "By Wire", assuming you do not have a US bank account - full instructions for the "By Wire" method will show up when you are approved to fund your account. With TastyWorks, UK traders have 3 options at time of writing, going from highest to lowest fee:
1) Starling Bank: ~1% commission (+flat fee TBC?)
2) CurrencyFair: typical ~0.75% commission +$20 flat fee
3) TransferWise/Revolut + UK USD Account: ~0.5% commission +$20 flat fee
TastyWorks does not accept third party transfers (accounts not in your name), so services such as Revolut and TransferWise (inc. borderless) do not work directly
4.1 Starling Bank
With Starling Bank, you can do an international wire from a GBP account directly. Easy online bank setup and probably fastest way to get started, especially if you already bank with them. Note: Starling Bank is rejecting transfers to TastyWorks 'as it sits out of our international payment provider's risk appetite' (as of 11th May) - waiting for updates
Note that other routes include a $20 flat fee charged by intermediate banks before the transfer reaches TastyWorks. Haven't got confirmation that this route is charged or if Starling includes it within their higher fee.
4.2 CurrencyFair
TastyWorks have approved transfers via CurrencyFair with a guide at:
Easy to get started, but a couple hoops to jump through to confirm your transaction to TastyWorks via email.
Note that the $20 flat fee is for an intermediary bank to take their cut between CF and TastyWorks, but that is not mentioned on the CurrencyFair website.
4.3 USD account + TransferWise/Revolut
The cheapest option is to set up a USD currency account and transfer through that.
The account of choice is the Barclays USD Foreign Currency account - you need a current account with them to be able to open the USD account. HSBC also have an offering, but not had this route confirmed.
Once the USD account is open, you can transfer into it using Revolut/TransferWise (cheap) and then international (wire) transfer from Barclays account to TastyWorks (free!). Note that the Barclays USD account is still a UK bank account, so you'll need to use a SWIFT transfer from Revolut/TransferWise to turn your GBP into USD.
Note that the $20 flat fee is for an intermediary bank to take their cut between Barclays and TastyWorks, but that is not mentioned on the Barclays website.
4.4 Withdrawals
To withdraw funds, do the opposite for a deposit, noting that $45 will be charged by TastyWorks per withdrawal.

5. Getting Started

I highly, highly recommend TastyWork's education centre and their TastyTrade videos, especially if you are new to this.
Otherwise, once funded, it's as simple as downloading the app on mobile, using the browser trading screen, or downloading their full desktop platform.
That's it for the guide - happy trading, and if there are any questions, feel free to get in touch and I'll edit the answers in here. I want this to be a resource because I've helped many people get started, and it would be good to have it all in one place!

Advice on this trading strategy

So, I have been researching some ineicators that may make up for quite the interesting strategy for stock cfd and index trading.
First, I plan to use two sets of Bollinger Bands, one with a 1sd and the other with a 2sd. If the price goes above the 1sd upper band I'llconsider it my signal for buy, placing take peofit directly above the 2sd upper band and my stop loss right below the 1sd lower band.
Now, I plan to use RSI to gauge the trend, using 50 as a point of reference, only entering the trade with the Bollinger Band strategy mentioned above when it goes above 50.
Maybe I can add a MACD to see if there is going to be a soon to happen convergence and have a more solid grasp of how soon the trend will be possibly reversing or if it'll still go on.
PD: I'm a novice trader who has recently started practising simulator, please provide me with advice regarding the strategy I came up with.

How do you avoid catching falling knives?

I started trading in May, up literally 300% using leveraged CFDs. I was a lucky idiot trading Airlines.
But for the past month, I've lost 15% of my profits. Literally every time because I panic sold on a stock after catching a falling knife. I try and buy low, but the stocks always seem to dip further after I buy. I panic, thinking this is 'the big crash' and sell to cut my losses. Is there any way of telling when a stock has hit the floor? And how can you be sure it's a dip, not the start of a huge crash?
TLDR - How to know when to buy a dip and not panic sell like a retard

Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:33]
Hey everyone. Happy to share abit more about what's going on at Switcheo
Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 11:34]
happy to be here 🙂
Q:Brad, [23.07.20 11:35]
Hello Jack
Can you please share some details about future developments and upgrages
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 11:36]
hey Brad, we’re currently working on a few developments for Switcheo, namely Switcheo Tradehub (previously Switcheo Chain) and DeMex (a decentralized derivatives platform built on Switcheo Tradehub)
Q:Brad, [23.07.20 11:36]
I love switcho exchange but little bit conscious about its trading volume and liquidity.
Do you guys have any plan for that?
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 11:39]
yes, Switcheo TradeHub will have an inbuilt AMM model where users can stake tokens into liquidity pools to earn provider fees (quite similar to how uniswap works) to provide liquidity onto the spot trading pairs
Q:Mostafa nazar, [23.07.20 11:35]
How will BTC be available on Tradehub in non-custodial way?
Will it be like renBTC or will you use different tech?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:39]
renBTC is quite a good protocol which can be used to automatically wrap BTC through an ethereum smart contract, for e.g. seamlessly using it with the deposit / lock contract. However fees are still high and we do have another protocol that we will use initially.
Q:Olexander, [23.07.20 11:36]
What's the plan to Increase the Demand & Value of the native token?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:41]
we have two articles here talking about SWTH token. On top of that there's more value propositions that we're releasing in a future article soon
A:Jack Yeu:
SWTH will be used for validating transactions on Switcheo TradeHub through staking, where stakers will earn transaction + trading fees generated by Switcheo Exchange; there are also other use cases for SWTH tokens - I’ve linked an article below for those who would like to find out more:
Q:Terrupi©, [23.07.20 11:36]
What is your strategy to marketing and for Mass Adoption? What message do you want to send to community through AMA today?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:44]
I don't think such things can be easily discussed in an AMA format. There's many angles to marketing and we are tackling them all. We're also still far from mass adoption in terms of the entire crypto landscape. In the meantime we'll just keep building what we think is most needed.
For today we just want to share more about Switcheo and catch up with our community!
Q:Jacopo DioBrando, [23.07.20 11:36]
Can u talk about Demex and what is the edge of Switcheo compared to other hundreds exchanges u/ravenxce ?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:45]
I think demex will be the first derivative exchange that is scalable and you can place your bets with in a fair and transparent manner
Q:edWARd SNOVden | TFF, [23.07.20 11:36]
Hello, with how many validators will the tradehub start?
There are two different numbers. In the article "Enhancing The Switcheo Token" it's 11, and in a post of Ivan on twitter is "open for all". What is correct?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:47]
It's open for all, but only the top 11 will be active and actually earn block proposer rewards / commissions. As we increase the number of validators, more validators will be able to earn that. So basically it's about controlling how many active proposers there are.
Q:Bhaskar, [23.07.20 11:36]
Security is very important so,how about #Switcheo security systems? Is it enough safe because recently many exchanges get hacked and what makes #Switcheo different from other project?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:48]
I think so. We are looking at NXM (Nexus Mutual) as an insurance option which will also give users more confidence in the DEX.
As mentioned above, we're looking at Nexus Mutual insurance to allow coverage on our ethereum smart contracts. We also will have an insurance fund for the upcoming TradeHub platform.
Q:Nic, [23.07.20 11:45]
With the uprising and adoption of BEP2 standard, slowly most of the ERC20 tokens are migrating to BEP2 and listed on Binance DEX. What is your take on this? Will Ethererum based DEX exist in long run considering the network constraints of Ethererum network?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:49]
Ethereum's current scalability is one of the primary reasons for building Switcheo TradeHub which acts as a sidechain / scaling solution. With that we are confident of solving issues of high fees that currently plague defi, including Switcheo Exchange.
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 11:49]
I think that while Binance Dex has fast order settlements, it still lacks a degree of decentralization with Binance using their .com as a gateway for tokens that already exist on other chains to swap, for example if you want to swap an ERC-20 token to BEP-2, you would have to lock the tokens via .com ; DEXs on ethereum however are getting increasingly expensive to operate due to high gas costs
Q:Suraj Rajput, [23.07.20 11:45]
Defi seems to be a useful $switcheo and concept right now. Many and many finance-related blockchain projects are built with Defi inside. So, beside cooperating with banking, has your team ever thought about integrating Defi into $switcheo platform ?
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 11:50]
our focus has always been around defi with many of the upcoming concepts around demex incorporating familiar products already in the space; i’m not sure what do you mean by cooperating with banking
Q:Nic, [23.07.20 11:45]
Word decentralization means nothing centralized like email, etc. Can developers create full dex exchange on Switcheo no email nothing?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:51]
You can already connect to Switcheo directly from your personal wallet like Metamask or Trust wallet.
Q:A. Ivanov, [23.07.20 11:45]
For Decentralized Exchanges, Liquidity is major Issue.. So, How Switcheo Platform solve the Liquidity problems from it's Exchange?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:53]
We're building cross-chain liquidity pools similar to uniswap and balancer into Switcheo TradeHub, and will have on-chain incentives to attract liquidity providers. We're also integrating these L1 liquidity pools like kyber and uniswap. These combined with external market makers will improve exchange liquidity.
Q:Vincent, [23.07.20 11:56]
Will Switcheo have real BTC trading with order books? In what way will it be similar or different to BTC trading on Nash?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 11:58]
Of course. No idea how Nash does it as none of their core code is open source till this date to our knowledge.
Q:Brad, [23.07.20 11:58]
Love to see fiat gateway
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:00]
We did have a fiat gateway for awhile. But integrating fiat is expensive and not cost effective. We're focusing on decentralized efforts / defi for now.
Q:Ashish Tripathi, [23.07.20 11:56]
Switcheo Platform offers DEX on Ethereum, EOS, NEO ! But Do you have any Plans to add More Blockchains Like Tron, Binance Chain in Switcheo Platform?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:02]
Yes. We really want to add many more blockchains, and will be one of our priorities in the near future.
Q:Roshan 🇮🇳🇸🇪, [23.07.20 12:01]
u/ravenxce Hey there Ivan hope you and your team are in good health
I wanted to know recently with some windows 10 updates logging into Switcheo using the ledger hardware wallet is next to impossible any work around instead of just changing the OS ?
How will you tackle the legal hurdles of integrating a decentralised cross chain platform with a Fiat gateway ?
Thank you in advance
All the best
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:03]
I think we added webusb support which should fix most issues on ethereum. For neo routing through a software wallet like O3 is the best. If we have time we may be able to submit an update for the neo ledger app to support webusb, so that can be fixed too.
Q:Joseph, [23.07.20 11:58]
What is the structure of the company, is it a decentralised, open sourced protocol where everybody can contribute? If so, how does the governance plan on being handled?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:04]
For now, most of the development work is centralized. But we're moving towards a DAO model, where it's really community driven and developed in a fully open manner. Blog post soon on this as well.
Q:Michael Jackson, [23.07.20 11:57]
What business scenarios can Switcheo Network support now? In what industry can we see a mass adoption of Switcheo Network technology in the near future?
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 12:05]
switcheo tradehub lets developers build order matching types of platforms (such as exchanges) on the chain itself, we’re also working on actual use cases for tradehub
Q:NasdaQ Ryong, [23.07.20 11:58]
Could you tell us some details about Support of Switcheo? Is it active 24/7?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:05]
Yes. We have someone always available. Max response time is at most 1-2 hours usually.
Q:Jacopo DioBrando, [23.07.20 11:58]
Is it true that on Demex it will be possible to trade more or less any asset?
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 12:06]
yes, anyone would be able to create any sorts of CFD markets
Q:Joseph, [23.07.20 11:56]
Is Switcheo easy for new users? Can you highlights some points that attract users who don't know too much about Switcheo ?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:07]
I think all they need to do is try it to see how easy it is to use. I think being able to trade with an order book plus uniswap / kyber as a liquidity pool is quite unique.
Q:Joseph, [23.07.20 11:56]
How does #Switcheo get profit from running the project?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:08]
For the team, we hold SWTH tokens, so we profit from an increase in treasury as well as earn a proportion of the trading fees
Q:Maxim, [23.07.20 11:56]
I really hadn't heard of the Switcheo Network, but I have used Uniswap. Does it have the same operation and is it easy to manipulate? what differentiates Switcheo from Uniswap?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:09]
It's a little different in that we use a deposit / order book / withdraw model. It's cheaper if you're making multiple orders, and you can do limit orders more easily unlike on uniswap.
Q:Pubudu Eranga, [23.07.20 11:56]
Switcheo is now running on the NEO, ETH and EOS blockchain. One of the future plans of Switcheo is creating their own chain. But is there any specific date for this to happen?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:10]
very soon ™️. our testnet is already ongoing
Q:Mostafa nazar, [23.07.20 11:57]
Will switcheo support elastic AMM pools (for example 20-80%) pools to lower impermanent loss for liquidity providers? Like what balancer did
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:12]
Yes, this requirement has been recently added
Q:Raghav, [23.07.20 11:57]
In my opinion DeFi is still in Early Stage & it Needs Huge Developments to grow! But, What are your Future Thoughts for DeFi Markets?
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 12:12]
we do see a lot of current demand and uses for defi products such as curvefi, uniswap, switcheo; which would likely spawn a new wave of more advanced projects built around current defi protocols, such as switcheo tradehub :)
Q:Brad, [23.07.20 11:57]
How robust are you to handle 21st century volume of transactions Your metamorphosis is a laudable one, how have you been able to survive on longest bear market and continue building and developing cos many projects have died out
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:14]
We are confident of the scalability of our upcoming platforms. Surviving is a matter of being agile and managing risk and treasury well I guess.
Q:Castro Tiburcio, [23.07.20 11:57]
Few crypto platform project have very slow interface usage on their platform because of overload from the server itself especially when there is big move in the market like btc crash.
How Switcheo platform handle this issue?
A:Ivan Poon, [23.07.20 12:17]
At the moment we have an off-chain matching engine. So we can take the load and queue them up to broadcast to smart contracts asynchronously. When Switcheo TradeHub launches, it will be similar but the matching engine will be distributed across many validator nodes!
A:Jack Yeu, [23.07.20 12:19]
great question - the issue with ethereum onchain dexs that deal with margin/deriviatives would be these sorts of black swan events involving mass liquidations (which would result in high gas fees and failed txns), which then flood the chain and prevent cancellations or stop losses from occuring.
by moving onto switcheo tradehub, we save on transactions costs and benefit from higher tps

Let me show you how I make money.

Again within 24 hours of trying to work out a way to make this sustainable and workable for everyone I've noticed it's not worth the hassle to do so. It seems a lot of you expect everything for nothing.

I'm afraid that is not going to work for me. Nothing I am doing is free for me, and if people do not want to pitch in the tiniest bit to help with that I can only conclude one of two things;

1 - The info is not worth $50 to you. In which case it is not worth my time writing it.
2 - People are ungrateful. In which case it is not worth my time writing it.

If people were willing to meet me half way, I'd have went a lot further. People seem to want to stand where they are and shout over to me I'm a scammer for not bringing it all to their feet. That's a perspective. You can have it. I do not mind. But if this is your talk, I'll trade in silence. I'll also show you what happens with the "Scammy" info I was going to provide you for $50.
In the week ahead I'll set up an account with a similar amount to the amount of money people seem to think it's egregious to ask for, and I'll run the same trades on this as will be in the trading plans shared in the proposed offer. I'll use recognised results tracking programs that will automatically verify and display the results.

Build up phase:

I'll start with currency trades. These are the lowest barrier to entry since I can trade micro lots and also have access to leverage. Currency trades should give me about 400 'pips' margin of error. Realistically, I should not need more than 40. I think SPX will be up 2 - 4% next week, this should give gains to on the Aussie against the Swiss (AUDCHF) - I'll go long AUDCHF.

Margin up phase:

After the currency trades I should have enough to trade SPX. I'll start to position short on SPX around 3080 and I'll take a first target of 2377. Given the right setups I'll add to my SPX short as prices are falling to bulk up the net take profit on the trade if it works. I'll trail my stops on the first trades to mke sure I'm not increasing my risk .

Big up phase:

By this time I should have enough margin to trade the Dow. Here I can make some real money. Around 21,000 I'll start to short the Dow and I'll be targeting 10,000. This trade should pay me somewhere in the region of $50,000 per traded lot. During the move I should be able to build up a position of at least 4 - 5 lots on the margin I have. Should be over $200,000 if it hits.

Cash flow up phase:

Once the drop has happened, I will begin to go long and do it in ways that will generate me daily income. I'll do this by transferring about $100K into options account and selling puts for 100 SPY. I'll also switch back to currency trades and I'll engage in what are known as "Carry trades", these will pay me every day I hold the trade based upon the "Swap".
The best carry trades will depend upon what respective interest rates are at the time. Assuming things are similar (relatively) to how they currently are, I will be buying the Aussie, Kiwi and Turkish currencies and I'll be selling them against the dollar and Yen. This will be long AUDUSD, NZDUSD, AUDJPY, NZDJPY and short USDTRY. I'll allocate $50,000 to carry trades.

I'll use the remaining money to hedge and offset risks/losses on my cash flow trades if that is needed, and if not I will use it to make similar trades but ones based upon a short time frame and geared towards risk:reward based profit rather than passive cash flow. I'll keep doing this until the Dow is back to around 17,000 - 18,000.

Crash cash phase:

For the next phase of the drop I will again switch to trading the Dow. This is where I can make most money. I might also allocate $100 - 200K to OTM puts, but since this can be a slower more steady crash it will make more sense to build a position in the CFD market on the Dow. Again my Dow trade should pay over $50,000 per lot. This time building up over 20 lots should be fairly easy.

Cash flow decade phase:

Once the market has crashed I will start to become a big options seller. i'll also engage in carry trades if interest rates are not all screwed up (Which is there are 'currency wars' they could be). Being able to be on the right side of a carry trade will determine if this is viable or not - and that has some variables that can not be known at this time. I'd love to be able to just short USDTRY, though. If it's viable.

With options, I will be selling both put options and call options. I think once the crash has happened we will enter into a long term theta market last 10 - 15 years - this period is known as a 'Lost decade)'. I'll sell SPY puts for under the lows and I'll also sell SPY calls each time there is jumps in upside volatility. I'll be happy to sell SPY calls for 200 for literally years on end.

By this time I should have more than $50.

I'll update my swing plans either bi-weekly, weekly or monthly. Pending on how much free time I have. I'll edit this post to add in the results tracking material when I set it up.

Update: Here's the tracking link.

I set the copy software to invert trades & the first trades went short AUDCHF rather than long. That puts me on quite a substantial losing start, but it should not matter. Might push the start of SPX trades back a week. Probably won't. Let me just show the value of what I've been trying to teach you.

Analyzing the YouTube cooking video scene and stars

After watching Folding ideas video on , Cooking on the Internet for fun and profit, I felt inspired to have to discuss what is the current landscape of online cooking shows. This is a sort of exploration of how things are, what it means for restaurants, cooks or even cooking in general and how it will shape the industry in general afterwards. In ways this is sort of a review and comparison of the various YouTube personalities and what does it mean to be a YouTube star. Following the 3 pillars that Folding Ideas had laid out, Personality, Information and Spectacle, I will rating the personalities/channels based on a 6 point allocation system Like a skill pool and application of their points therein, the max could be 6 in one category at the detriment of the other skill sets.
Binging with Babish
Personality: 2
Information: 1
Spectacle: 3
If there was a leader for cooking shows now, it is Babish. His appearance on reddit tapping into the internet nostalgic nerdom has gave him popularity and the ability to bank on it. What I find interesting from the rating is that his spectacle isn’t that he’s is incredibly flamboyant or crazy with what he is doing, it’s just that his non face, one camera and hands only production is his spectacle. That is is his trademark and recognition. Why not the idea of how he recreates pop culture meals and then make a “gourmet” version of it? It would be more recognized but it is shown that with his Basics with Babish spin off series with equal fame means that his spectacle is not limited to only that purpose. As much as I would like to say he is the benchmark of which cooking shows should be judged now, I feel an all around person is actually impossible to become popular because balance does not inspire people, it is the stacking of it one aspect that changes it.
Adam Ragusea
Personality: 2
Information: 2
Spectacle: 2
Adam imho is as equal footing as you can have with as a YouTube star. His own video discussing the aspect YouTube cooking is interesting in the fact that his production is exactly what his most famous video is all about. It’s about stirring the pot and going against tradition in for the sake of doing so. I’ll make it plain, I sort of don’t like him for specific reasons unknown. As as chef I do see the slight arrogance in some of his instruction which is typical of chefs of renown and often celebrated. He has the knowledge and even the connections but I think because due to the allocation of his points evenly, no aspect supports his arrogance which would require a 3 or 4 to make up for those shortcomings. Plainly said, if he is that arrogant, it needs for him to have point allocation into more skill column to justify it. Because it is so even, his jack of all trades make’s him less of an expert and more of a columnist.
But I do respect that. Because in the long run, because of that one video that had netted him the most views, it allows him to basically be free to do anything. From information about sourdough research, to social commentary about media consumption of Mario Batali, to just a regular emphasis on one show, to ingredient/technique analysis, he’s basically someone who is the complete product of cooking shows of the 90’s food show boom. He is what Good eats is but the acts of act 1 Information, Act 2 preparation, and Act 3 execution, focuses on either just 1, 2 or 3 but sometimes never all of them at the same time. Toss in a splash of the analytical mind of Bourdain (courtesy of his Journalism degree) and that is who he is.
Chinese Cooking demystified
Personality: 1
Information: 3
Spectacle: 2
And now we enter one of the niche shows. Catering to a specific cuisine, the information is the spectacle. The interesting thing is when I approached my rating system, I almost considered making it just a personality and information rating with the spectacle being the difference between the two learning towards whichever side. CFD clearly takes on the Babish way of hands only presentation with voiceover. And in comparison with Babish it touches upon an amazing thing, that the production values are the invisible thing that makes the show appealing. Quite often I imagine myself thinking about how these hosts are talking out loud during the film portion and then reframing the same scene in their voice over work, polishing words and ideas. Unlike one shot recording, it’s like a 2nd take on the food and being able to do that shows how much that polish appeals to our sense of media.
What I find super interesting that is CFD clearly has less kitchen equipment that most other shows for good reason. Reflecting the space availability in Asia and just the different equipment and techniques used in Chinese cooking, there is an indirect extra amount of information being conveyed to the viewer. Was it not for the production value, this could have been mistaken to many home cooks channels showing off their techniques with bowls that they have readily at home, non industrial grade kitchen equipment and DIY set ups for shows.
What I admire about this show is that this video on Mapo Tofu sums it’s completely, a deep delve into their mission statement, casting off the adaptations of Chinese dishes and creating authenticity and personality from the information.
Joshua Weismann
Personality: 2
Information: 2
Spectacle: 2
What is interesting is that he is one of the few chefs amongst the pantheon on YouTubers. A lot of the other ones are actually have a career in video production. Looking at his point allocation, you see that I am essentially putting him in the same category as Adam Ragusea, which isn’t a bad thing. In the second similarity comparison why this makes sense is because Joshua has many things in common. The awareness of media consumption of cooking shows (aka business transition video) how he opens his shot and closes it with the cupboard which hearkens to Good Eats, and his often shown B roll. This is a chef fully aware of what makes a good show, hitting all the tropes of it and one that the audience begrudgingly accepts because we know that is what we want.
The recognition that he is a chef helps to credibility especially considering he has a handful of videos reflecting how to cook more efficiently and how to think like a chef and he has created niches within his own channel with Fermentation Fridays, his Making series where he makes an at home version of a fast food item. A similar vein of Babish and Gourmet Makes. Tapping into those niches it makes me wonder what is the fascination with recreating a food item that exists at home where the whole point of consuming the food item is to not have to make it in the first place. Everyone can make chicken sandwiches, everyone can have this product available at a fraction of the time and effort and yet the recreations engages audiences.
It shows that the making series has the highest views of any other type of videos on his channel with often exceeding 1 million views (the Church’s chicken burger being the first pre pandemic topping out at 5.9 million). Which once again goes to Ragusea’s point about what you want to be known for won’t necessarily be what you will be known for. The pandemic certainly helped if only for people to be nostalgic for the items they cannot get to but can be recreated at home for comfort.
But I don’t see Joshua as that. I recognize him first for his sourdough series but also for a mishmash of other things. Like the rating indicates, he’s a jack of all trades in the 3 pillars and the entry point for consuming his videos is vast enough to engage with people with concise videos that balance what the videos are like (notice buzzwords like Easiest, Ultimate, Guides and How Tos), acknowledgement of the media he is presenting these products (cupboard intro, production value and b rolls) and information. Comparing with him and Adam, who would I choose since they are so similar? Joshua of course because his cooking show is probably as closest to the spectrum end of old TV network cooking shows than of the Streaming. But consider this. Like I mentioned before Adam is representative of the culture of cooking audience consumption and the end product of it. Joshua is more the end product of cooking show production and represents what tropes are associated with said genre.
My name is Andong
Personality: 3
Spectacle: 1
Weird comparison here with Andong and Joshua. Imagine this. Joshua has his branding as shown to focus on how to cook. It’s technique driven instructive. Andong has a branding that is about the food but his diversity for the food is all across the map. And that is the point. A Russian born filmmaker who studied in China and lives in Berlin, his channel is probably the most representative of the host than any other on this list. His personality is the spectacle and IMHO a lot of that has to do with being a filmmaker, his background but also literally his background. The set he uses is the evolution of what a kitchen set from a TV show looks like. It literally looks like a non-fuctional display of the show and as seen in one of his BTS videos, it is his living room.
So being the first one where it is all personality what do I have to say? Andong is just oozing it. It’s crazy how comforting his personality and enthusiasm is that permeates through all his videos regardless of content. What do I mean by that? Doesn’t Joshua and Adam have that same enthusiasm? They do, but their enthusiasm is from informing the audience of a method that makes sense. The act of informing what makes it’s amazing. His culture series fantastic.
However with Andong his enthusiasm for the food is literally for the food. Not how it’s made, not how but the amazingness that this thing even exists and he wants to share that love for that dish with you. With him I feel there is no effort needed to explain why this is great, it’s just there. It helps when has people over to test the items to eat, but if there was any YouTuber who is shares the joy of say Bourdain enjoying a meal, it would be Andong. The positivity is backed up with the food vernacular of foodies. THe draw is learning about the food he is cooking and not necessarily what the technique is hence heavy on the information culturally that the technique.
Pro Home Cooks
Personality: 1
Information: 3
Spectacle: 2
The low on the personality scale again. I have nothing against Mike Green but like a few on here, the focus is on the food. His sandwich series, goes hand in hand with his sourdough obsession. His focus is on education but in a different way than others. With the courses he offers on the side as well drive to actually make pro cooks at home, he reminds me a lot of Joshua in that but he seems to have a bit of an emphasis on guests to be the expert on whatever subject he was discussing. It is interesting how his channel managed to continue on without his brother probably because of the lack of personality. When you create a brand that isn’t dependent solely on the host(s), it can survive beyond it’s initial concept. But even in the title it offers what it’s intent is, to make you a pro cook at home. Wanting to inspire people beyond just entertaining them goes a long way and it shows in Mike’s “Mistakes” series which shows a side to cooking rarely seen “fixing/prevention” of cooking mishaps.
Alex “French Cooking Guy”
Personality: 3
Information: 3
Spectacle: 0
Ok I know what you are saying. Where the fuck is the spectacle. Well guess what, his personality is the spectacle. The information is part of the personality, which is also spectacle. Alex is the purest example of why I originally humoured a 2 metric system of just personality and information and what the different of emphasis is the spectacle. But the second you enter his video section, especially his most recent ones, it is obsession. His series are not a weekly thing or whatever was edited conveniently. They are back to back to back which emphasizes how he produces. And it works. His croissant series was 11 installments in a row (14 if you count the 3 tempering chocolate series beforehand) and other videos exhibit the same amount of dedication and format.
But this isn’t to say just because he is French that is why his personality is so engaging from a Western audience who is more familiar with English speaking chefs. Andong has a personality that goes beyond just the charm of his accent (in fact it was a conscious choice for him to make it in English to reach more viewers). Alex has more in common with another personality that isn’t even a Chef and that is Adam Savage. His film production skills takes him to a next level away from cooking shows because look at his studio, it literally looks like a garage/lab. With his engineering videos and focusing on one aspect of an item for an entire video where others would just focus on maybe max 2 minutes, the spectacle is almost a pure 6 from personality and information by sheer amount of what he was bombarding you with it. He is the science teacher that makes you excited for a subject through empathy and his sheer enthusiasm.
Bon Appetit
Personality: 3
Information: 0
Spectacle: 3
This artcle explains a lot. Bon Appetit has the benefit of creating crossovers. The MCU/Network television of shows. In a weird way Mike Green of Pro Cooks at Home is similar to Bon Appetit by trying to sell a lifestyle in cooking. The “Perfect series” is much like the Avengers style mash up and their own running series plays on the strength of the people’s personalities. TBH Bon Appetit is one of the last places I’d go for informative instruction, but I would go purely for the entertainment. I’m not saying it’s empty of information, I just feel there are a lot more resources I would scour before defaulting to Bon Appetit. And that is what is awesome about this Channel it actually created a formula for success where a lot has failed even well funded non independent and cook focused driven channels. As emphasized in the article it is because of the strength of their personalities.
Like Babish and Joshua, I feel that Bon Appetit is one of those channels that had a culture existing outside the show through it’s memes. With Claire inspiring the most of them and Brad’s “wodour” they have reach the hall of farmers like “Bam” EVOO and “That’s for another show…” slight effort they have created a meme machine that transcends their informative content and shine in the personality content.
Fine Dining TV and Chef Epic
Personality: 0
Information: 4
Spectacle: 2
Wow. All information no personality. This must be awesome right? Wrong. There is a reason that these two channels has averages of a few thousand views the lack of personality. Remember Pro Cooks at Home? This is the result of having zero personality to tether all the information together. A lot of people just don’t have personalities for the camera and that percentage does translate into the chef population as well. But remember that most of famous YouTube Chefs are filmmakers first. Even Alton Brown was a director for commercials before starting Good Eats.
But isn’t the spectacle just the wealth of information you get in how the dish is created? Well of course...if you are part of that industry. Remember this is just my opinion but as my opinion as a chef, gleaning just a clue to what they used to make the dish allows me to reverse engineer how to make it. That is why I value the information at 4. But the spectacle is fucked. In a lot of these videos, the consideration of how to show the act of plating and cooking is cold and efficient, not the way a show plates for the audience. This is like seeing a magic act in the backroom in the Prestige. You see how the illusion of the food is made, but in doing so some of the magic of this plate appearing on your table is lost. At the end of the day it is just an item to the chef, for service for the business not selling you the culture, lifestyle, the promise of being able to make the food. The story is not there.
Don’t get me wrong I love these two channels. I wish for them to have more views and more engagement. But without a host to fill in the gaps between why I am traveling to this restaurant or learning this technique, we lose our stand in for us in that video. The relationship between chef and audience is lost because we can’t eat it and we don’t have anyone to empathize and live through when it is eaten.
John QuilteFood Busker
Personality: 3
Information: 2
Spectacle: 1
And then you have someone like John Quilter. Ex chef, visiting places that are showing off said techniques and engaging with it through him. The video on the pork chop amazing, showing his engagement with it as well. Like Joshua has many videos on How Tos, Perfects and Tips For, I feel his evolution isn’t maintaining consistency but his evolution in general. From what I gather I see he lives for the work. He just works and the burn out came from it. It’s sad because there is nothing wrong with his content, but this is an example of how high barrier to entry for the online cooking show is. He had been doing this for years, even longer than Babish! But to what end do you keep on doing it to a lack of engagement? This seems to be the exact same effort that caused Folding Ideas to abandon his cooking show attempt, not for a lack of love but from the level of consistency required for the effort.
Food Geek
Personality: 2
Information: 4
Spectacle: 0
On the opposite side of the Chef Epic and Fine Dining TV, we have the Food Geek. Much like any other entry on this list devoid of spectacle, Sune’s spectacle comes from his personality and information. His sole emphasis on the methods for sourdough and his experiments make his contribution vital in a way that makes America’s Test Kitchen and Serious Eats so amazing. The ASMR-like voice is perfect for delivering the reaction and results of the experiment that reassures that he did this so you don’t have to. The information is the story which is so weird because where Chef Epic and Fine Dining TV are trying to show you a story, it’s just too short. It’s a collection of short films about kitchens not a cooking channel. Food Geek accomplishes something I feel is more needed in the cooking show genre as we all grow more in education about cooking.
Urban Butchery Channel
Personality: 1
Information: 3
Spectacle: 2
Butchery is that niche that only a handful of chefs will every touch. Once again the information is part of the spectacle and the knowledge of Franco is amazing. But as you can see the apparent “dryness” of the subject has given it few views. It goes to show that even specialization does not guarantee popularity even if the subject is totally focused on said speciality. Bon Appetit has it’s own butcher series that is equally as dry yet garners more views because of their massive media presence. But like Food Geek, this is exactly the informative channel I wish can inspired people to take the next step in their cooking education and journey. To bridge the gap between source and end product for the consumer.

Ultimately all these stars are contributing to the cooking landscape in some shape or form. These shows are repackaging the basics in how media changes with each decade and generation. Julia's was almost a supplement to her book after the success of her demonstration, Pepin a continuation on PBS, Emeril, Alton, Jamie, Rachel, Nigella the embrace of the Food Network channel, and Babish and Bon Appetit being the YouTube era. All of them were teaching the basics of what we all knew but almost adding ever so slightly upon the next generation entering adulthood or college. The education gets better with each generation but I feel it always has to develop the "personality" of the person through all the basics and before introducing something different such as curry, pad thai, and like Andong more euro centric dishes. Ultimately these chefs and content creators are challenging how we view cooking, how we should approach it and most importantly educating us.
I hope in this post pandemic world, that these channels and as a whole can lead people seeing their relationship with food in a different way. To what is possible, what is considered delicious and ultimately what can bring us together as a community as food always has.

If you have any other channel that is worth mention do discuss it of course. Always out there looking for more channels. I do have other channels to suggest but their impact sort of fits so closely to other entries on this list that it didn't seem worth mentioning.

Roundup of the Week (Comments)

Analysis Overview

Long term analysis;
This is an overview of long term analysis. This will not be updated regularly, so if you've read this once skip to the monthly overview, after the line break. Jump to the bottom section for weekly (new) updates.
Find a three year forecast of the Dow Jones bear market of the 2020's here.
The US indices have been forming a bubble over the last 50 years. In 2000 and 2008 we seen the early 'Bear trap' sections of the bubble and then in the following decade we seen enthusiasm become greed and greed become delusion. The 30% gain in the S&P500 through the year 2019 was the final stages of this bubble.
Here is a post describing us being in the 'Delusion' stage of the bubble in January of 2020.

The pop of this bubble and the following bear market will not be a nice fast one like the crashes of 2000 and 2008, it will be a more drawn out affair where prices drop far lower. The crash of the 2020's will be more like the crash of the 1930's depression. See the analysis leading to this conclusion here.

In the months of January and February major US indices traded into the zone where a bubble template would be looking for the top to be made. Read about how this method has worked in previous crashes here. First forecasts in late January were mostly stopped out. There were losing signals on the Dow around 29,300 and some in February at 28,900. Individual stocks shorts done poorly, One exception was the Vanguard dividends index VYM. This did make it's high on the exact price first posted.
Individual stocks picks done particularly poorly in January. TSLA almost doubled from the first shorting price of 510. Some did a bit better. Like shorting T at 39.

Later in February more sell signals were generated as price traded briefly over important resistance levels. If price broke back under these it would suggest market weakness. These were 170 on VTI and 29,000 on the Dow. Once these levels were broken the bear market began. In the following days a signal for a 30% drop on the Dow Jones came (and was successful).

Individual stock picks did much better in February. High prices were signalled in MSFT, BRK, SPCE, GOOG. A high on AMZN was called, but price later traded higher. The best signal generated was a buy on the TVIX from 34 to 800.
In the month of March , 2020, the bubble popped. Most risk based assets and indices crashed over 30%. First analysis post said to wait for a bounce to sell into, but this was updated before the market opened to say prices could fall 8% and then 30% in March. At this point the TradingView account was suspended. Only one account is allowed, and this was set up specifically for a 2020's bear market. So no further posts or updates were made there.
On the 3rd of March came the first signal to look for the down move entering somewhere in the 16,000 - 18,000 area on the Dow Jones. Followed by a post on the 16th of March saying we're entering into the bull trap. The low on the Dow would be made around 18,250 on the 23rd of March. From here a rally began which has made a current high of 24,500.
April of 2020 has been the bull trap month. Some losing signals have been generated in the later couple weeks of April. A few calls on the top of the bull trap have been made. Prices have not went substantially higher, they've just not dropped. A forecast on the 17th of April marks the current high, but it looks like price can trade a bit higher. A post on the 19th of April calls for a crash in the S&P500 to 1,600 within the next 5 - 10 weeks.
Today is the 25th of April. Over the last two weeks forecasts of a big drop starting have been inaccurate. I very strongly suspect this is akin to the sell signals generated in late January and early February. It's the right idea, but it's just the wrong time. A top in the Dow Jones somewhere in the 24,000 - 25,000 area could be the end of the bull trap and a huge fall would be due in the months ahead.
If this fall happens in the month of May or June, a low can be made in around 8,000 - 9,000 on the Dow Jones. From here price can bounce back to around 18,000 (over the space of about 6 months). The next bear market could then start sometime around the year 2021, and be a two year bear market taking the Dow Jones all the way down to under 5,000.

Monthly Analysis

This is an analysis of forecasts for the month ahead. These will be updated monthly. If you've read this month's you can skip to the next line break.

Month of May:

It's the last week of April and the month of May will soon start. Expecting the month of May to be a strong sellers month. During this month the sellers may be able to break the lows of March and this would be a signal that a big market crash could soon follow. The big sell might not happen in May, it could be in June, but May is probably the best month to position for a market crash.

Weekly Analysis
This is an analysis of the week ahead. Please be aware immediate term forecasts are often the harder ones to make, and this means there are going to be more times weekly forecasts are inaccurate (Even if the overall forecast turns out to be accurate). Especially when picking out reversal levels, to get this correct to the day is often hard and can take a few attempts.
Week starting 27th of April:

It looks like last week I was suckered into the little bear traps near the end of the bull trap. This has probably been FOMO. Wanting to err on the side that would make sure I was in the trade if it happened. This has been an emotion based mistake that actually directly conflicts with the first forecast of a high on the Dow around 25,000.
I've taken early sell signals 24,000 and 24,500 and been quite convinced the 24,500 spike was the high. Heading into the week, I think I've been mistaken and the high is indeed going to come in very close to 25,000 (About 24,900 and I'll probably start to sell around 24,800). I think this move will be a stop run against all us sellers who've made the same mistake (Not all will notice it).
In the week ahead I'm planning to hedge by sell orders for a big spike up close to 25,000. I'll be expecting this spike to be a fast move and probably come off of some sort of positive news headline.

I'll edit this post to add in some more detailed analysis of my trade plans for the week ahead. This will be done by the open of Monday market, so check back to read that.

Update: Hour before the week's open. Here is the expected move and pending entry into the Dow Jones.

Update: My perspective on different put options expires in light of recent mis-forecasts of the end of the bull trap.

If you benefit from this analysis, please remember to be considerate to those who (through no choice of their own) ended up on the losing side of the circumstances that allowed your trades to profit.
Please share this analysis with anyone you think it could help.
