    Yep total scam. Everyone pays for them as part of their bills. The initial marketing of them as "free" was a lie and some boss bloke had to apologise. 
    Most folk that have them now will have to get then replaced with new model. 
    Double charge to boot.

    ^I may or may not hold some of those positions - I know people may go crazy on bulletin board "tips" and don't want to be responsible for any losses incurred. So if I leave it imaginary people can take it or leave it, which it has been since the start of this thread.
    Paper trading has also been a great way to hone your skills emotionally. The best trades are the ones where you didn't think it'll do well, and stick to the trade plan. I think you are less likely to be swayed by bulletin board chatter too/paid rampers/derampers.

    I thought you actually put your money where your mouth is? I’m disappointed in you.

    Don't worry - they aren't going to use people anymore anyway - hence why they are heavily investing into "AI".

    I was at a dinner yesterday and this topic came up.  General audience was traditional Tory, but with range of wingness.  about 20% party members.
    Everyone bemoaned Boris.  Nothing good said about Hunt.  Everyone said May was marvellous.
    I said that she was the worst prime minister since WWII.  They all looked at me as though I'd shot the Queen Mum.
    Anyway, Boris not a shoe-in, by their statements/reactions.
    [I hate it.  They're just repeating what they've been told by the press.  Same as Trump.  Neither are perfect (or even good), but their performance isn't 'bumbling fool'.  Eg, Trump's bringing NKorea to the table -- they keep on saying it was inevitable, that he almost blew it -- they just can't accept that if Clinton had won they'd likely be slinging missiles at one another]

    ^Probably to sign a deal that he must appear in this story, so "an example" can be made of, and there will be no more ahem unfortunate leaks.
    But then, everyone has a price, and bills to pay.

    I can't help thinking that there are people are profiting from both sides of this. There are quite a few boats made for Extinction Rebellion - has someone started a factory and selling these to local groups? 
    I see they have banned boats now.

    Don't actually recommend buying a "CRUD" ETF because over time there is a cost of holding because of "contango". But the chart illustrates where we have been.

    About time ? "the customer is always right" has probably gone too far. You can only appease for so long, and to prevent bad behaviour you're going to have to hurt people in their pockets.
