It looks like it's holding somewhat at 1pm today.
I don't know what it looks like now.
I believe it's spelled "Rubble" now.
A commingled is when an investment manager accumulates money from several investors and combines it into one fund.
Like mutual funds, commingled funds are overseen and managed by portfolio managers who invest in a range of securities.
Unlike mutual funds, commingled funds are typically not regulated by the SEC.
Commingled funds do not trade publicly and are not available for individual purchase; instead, they feature in institutional accounts such as pensions, retirement plans, and insurance policies.
Understanding a Commingled Fund
Commingling involves combining assets contributed by investors into a single fund or investment vehicle. Commingling is a primary feature of most investment funds. It may also be used to combine various types of contributions for various purposes

In many ways, commingled funds are similar to mutual funds. Both are professionally managed by one or more fund managers and invest in basic financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, or a combination of both.
Also, like mutual funds, commingled fund investments benefit from economies of scale, which allow for lower trading costs per dollar of investment, and diversification, which lowers portfolio risk.
Oversight of Commingled Funds
One major and important difference, however, is that commingled funds are not regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which means they are not required to submit a variety of lengthy disclosures. Mutual funds, on the other hand, must register with the SEC and abide by the Investment Company Act of 1940.
Commingled funds are not completely devoid of oversight, though: They are subject to review by the United States Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, as well as individual state regulators.
While mutual funds have a prospectus, commingled funds have a Summary Plan Description (SPD). SPDs offer more detail, describing the fund's objectives, investment strategy, and background of its managers. The SPD document states the rights and obligations that the plan participants and beneficiaries can expect. Any participant in a commingled fund should read the SPD carefully.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Commingled Funds
The lower degree of regulation results in lower legal expenses and operating costs for a commingled fund. The lower the costs, the less drag on a fund's returns. If a commingled fund and a comparable mutual fund post the exact same gross performance, the commingled fund's net return would likely be better because its expenses were lower than the mutual fund's.
A disadvantage of commingled funds is that they do not have ticker symbols and are not publicly traded. This lack of public information can make it difficult for outside investors to track the fund's capital gains, dividends, and interest income. With mutual funds, this information is much more transparent.

In some cases, the commingling of funds may be illegal. This usually occurs when an investment manager combines client money with their own or their firm's, in violation of a contract.
Details of an asset management agreement are typically outlined in an investment management contract. An investment manager has a fiduciary responsibility to manage assets according to certain specifications and standards. Assets agreed to be managed as separate cannot be commingled by the investment advisor.
Other situations may also arise where contributions provided by an individual or client must be managed with special care. This can occur in legal cases, corporate client accounts, and real estate transactions.
Just popping in with a quick announcement.
Unfortunately, FX Trader's Weekly ceased operations with its August 7, 2021 issue.
This was necessary because the revenues were not nearly high enough to justify the time and expense of publication and marketing. Thus, I will be concentrating my resources on trading going forward.
As always...keep pipping up!
RE: Our earlier discussion on the Turkish Lira (TRY) carry trade...
I mentioned at that time that Erdogan commonly bullies the Turkish central bank to keep rates artificially low. Well, he's at it again, as this article from ZeroHedge describes. The article even mentions the evaporation of the carry trading profits as the Erdogan's policies continue to drive the Lira into the dirt.
Canada had a fairly good news week last week - good retail sales, but I don't see any news over the past couple of days to explain the runup. FXTW is essentially contrarian, so I'm seeing CAD as very overvalued. It's also got the worst macro-economic score as of last week - high unemployment and high inflation (relative to the other majors).
I see your order in the site's database for the yearly sub. It's showing a status of "Review" and I haven't received any notification or deposit from PayPal yet, so I checked into it further. I found this page on their site.
According to that, they try to complete the transaction within 24 hours. They either let it go through or reverse it. Once it goes through, your login should work.
Kind of weird - I've had a couple of weekly subs come in over the past few days and those just seemed to happen without any delay. I'm guessing it's because you just set up the PayPal account at the same time. At any rate, we'll see what happens tomorrow. I'll be on here at night again as usual.
,because I signed up and went through paypal,but then when I tried to sign in, the system didnt know me.??,
I took a hit on the demo ,so glad I put a stop in before bed..I was so confident I put a stop about 23 pips away..with 3 big lots that was a little over $500.but if I didnt put a stop in that one trade would of margined me..reminds me how dangerous this game can be.never take your eyes off the board.the name of the Forex game is "Steal your money",lol,gotta have cAt like reflexes.
I see the message in my mailbox, but just the text, "Cap, See if my script went through". So I don't see any signs of a script running anywhere.
Wow, I use mainly Fundies to pick trades and then manage them with technical levels, and I think there's a clear one on that chart right at the big 1.2000 figure.
It's hard to tell over at the left side because it cuts off, but it looks like there was resistance right there that got broken, and has been acting as support ever since.
Wonder if you might want to wait until that breaks to the downside again and retests from below.
Thanks! And where did you get that picture of me with the drum???
Right now I'm actually struggling to get the time to create more content, specifically blog posts, because I'm working full time about 55 hours/wk in this overheating economy.
Sounds like you're starting your demo trading off on the right foot!
see if my script went through..
Ive been reading through your site..alot of stuff.
from your blog to your ebooks.I have barely scratched the surface on your work.I am impressed. You remind me of the energizer bunny..you got me re-thinking about things I forgot years ago,like currency valuation with something as simple as the mac index..lol
but ya,if it wasnt for paypal I would of already signed in as a subscriber, and I will but just didn't feel like subscribing to paypal at the moment. The euro trade went well for me,I cashed out with just under 50 pips on 3 big lots (@ about 2300 buxs a lot investment) for about 1500 demo profit..waited for the pull back and now re-entered back at 1.2020 short with one lot at the moment to see if it will continue to 1.19 something..?
Yes, Trading Economics is great. I check it out weekly.
It hasn't really been carry trading season since the financial crisis of 2008. Rates plunged then, and have stayed low around the world. That's part of what's fueling the big runups in equities and other assets.
That being said, I think we're looking at inflationary pressures starting to pick up. We haven't seen bad inflation since the 70's, but that may be about to change. If so, rates will start to head up again, and there should be plenty of high yielding opportunities in much safer economies. Before the yield crash, NZD/JPY used to be a nice vehicle, for example.
If you really like those big yield numbers, check out Venezuela, lol! Rate is over 58%. But you'll always find those high rates in very rough neighborhoods in the world - often around wars. Right now there are high rates all over the Mid-east and Iran, Zimbabwe in Africa, troubled states in Central America like Venezuela and Argentina, etc. With big rewards comes big risks.
I jumped in at 120.72 short on demo just to see where this goes.
Concur, based on fundies as well. FX Trader's Weekly has the Euro as the second most bearish of the majors in this past issue's ranking.
I tried the TRY carry trade for years, and always got killed. Pull up a weekly chart for the past decade or so and you'll see why.
Erdogan is batpoop crazy, and bullies the CB constantly about rates. He's making enemies all around him and driving the country into the dirt. Gregory Copley of Defense & Foreign Affairs actually predicted a couple of years ago that Turkey may break apart this decade. This is the only country in which I (a former U.S. military officer) would actually welcome a military coup to restore sanity.
Shun the Turkish Lira, for it is the harbinger of death...
looks like the euro fits with this video,here is the daily I drew out to show the fazes ..selling opportunity for the euro next week..what Ive been hearing is the dollar is weakening ,but according to this chart,we should see oil, and pairs trading against the dollar go down.my guess.but trading next week I will be focusing on the euro and aud dollar combos.,
and here is the 4 hour..pick your entry on the 15 min..
Know your enemy...
how many forex traders even know who the enemy is?
retail traders are only Allowed to trade currencies for one reason only.
that reason is to bring LIQUITY into the market.
Here is a video that opened my eyes a few years ago ,and im going to share it with you, and once you understand the concept, you are going to be a better forex trader..one of the biggest tools in my tool box.
Enjoy the show.
Best FX Trading Strategies
Good talking with you..G'night.
I actually do have an account with Ameritrade as well, but I haven't used it for years. I used to use it for daytrading stocks, but never used their Forex features. I'd trust Ameritrade over some of the lesser known FX brokers though.
ya,I figured that out,but .......I just figured it out,as Im writting..image hub we use to download then upload the link to IH,
I saw that on YouTube. I responded to your response, lol
Yes, you did lol. I can't reply directly to those, but Public Reply works. Looks like you've got it now. I've never used IG, so I've got nothing there.

I went and checked out your utube vid..posted a response. ;)
I saw your PM, but my membership reverted to Free some time ago, so I couldn't reply. But indeed, the FL has yet to sing, and I see you're bringing the band back together...
Welcome back! Hope you've been well. As you can see, I've been lurking and puttering around every so often on here. Good to see your smiling electrons on this board again.
The only Forex broker that I really know is Oanda, and I've used them for years with only one issue with a deposit a few years ago (an issue they've since fixed I believe).
They're reputable, with board members that are on some of the largest tech giants (Microsoft is one), and in terms of capitalization and financial strength, they're near the top.
When we started this board,Everybody was new to Forex..there wasnt much info on the net because forex trading just became available to the retail trader.Now in 2021 ,this boards direction wont be so much on training..but on making money.How do you like the new look..breathing some new life into this board..opening the windows,letting some fresh air in..
I'll get around to dusting as we go..for Now......I have to re-learn how to use this platform again.be patient, im getting old...er,but then again wisdom comes with AGE!
