For the First Time In 3 Years, Investments In Renewable Energy Increased

artlu 2015 Will Definitely Not... (134 comments)

Be the best year for investments in renewable energy. The decline in fossil fuels across the board will kill the incentive to find renewable energy. The U.S. manipulation of the oil market in order to cripple Russia will have profound effects, but the reality is that oil and combustion technology will continue to lead the way for the next decade. And remember, even with manipulation, The Market is not Random.

Romanian Cybersecurity Law Will Allow Warrantless Access To Data

artlu Like U.S. (62 comments)

As most people are unaware, after the passing of the Dodd Frank reform act (post 2008 financial crisis), the U.S. gave blanket subpoena power to the civil agencies of this country with respect to financial records. Do your research, and remember The Market is not Random.

GCHQ Warns It Is Losing Track of Serious Criminals

artlu Re:Overpopulation and Length of Sentencing (229 comments)

I have done everything possible to show my remorse. I have forfeited every asset. I have accepted my responsibility, and I am working on my books in order to make full restitution to my victims via my "Five Mill to Freedom Campaign."

The misconception that my criminality did not lead to immense knowledge is wrong. I worked 3am-4pm every single day, as provable by my trading records. That information resulted in me writing, "The Market is Not Random.", and the forthcoming fictional portrayal of how to save our debt situation, "The White Swan."

Only by reaching an audience of hundreds of millions will I be able to make things right to those I have harmed.

GCHQ Warns It Is Losing Track of Serious Criminals

artlu Overpopulation and Length of Sentencing (229 comments)

As a former federal inmate (Read my story via The Market is Not Random), I was able to witness the expanding overcrowding of the system. The United States Sentencing Commission has been stating for many years that prison sentences are too long, and that non-violent criminals (like me) are prime candidates for alternative sentencing. In fact, regardless of crime, the majority of Americans believe a prison sentence of 2.6 years is long enough.

That said, I don't see that as the complete problem. Once released, federal inmates are subject to supervised release sometimes in excess of 10-15 years. The ability to track the ever expanding populous of inmates does a disservice to tracking the non-reformed. If one was to believe that prison did not lead to reform, then the proper conclusion is that all prisons (including myself) should be executed, regardless of crime.

Eric Schmidt: To Avoid NSA Spying, Keep Your Data In Google's Services

artlu Re:Absurd (281 comments)

I see your point, but the problem is that the government can gain access to any information it wants. In fact, if you are dealing with commodity/futures data/accounts, the CFTC was given blanket subpoena power after the 2008 crash.

Eric Schmidt: To Avoid NSA Spying, Keep Your Data In Google's Services

artlu Absurd (281 comments)

As anyone knows, Google receives several federal subpoenas, and it attempts to cooperate with as many as possible. It has to as a public, U.S. based entity. It seems ludicrous that Schmidt would make this claim, but unless someone has gone through this system like I have (read my story here The Market is not Random), I guess they wouldn't know everything the governments are capable of doing.

Careful, Mr. Schmidt.

Microsoft Quietly Starts Accepting Bitcoin As Payment Method

artlu Re:As a Market Lover (107 comments)

I don't believe that it is absolutely uncountefeitable. I did read the Wiki on it, but I don't think that any item digitally-based is safe. We are on /. after all ;)

Microsoft Quietly Starts Accepting Bitcoin As Payment Method

artlu Re:As a Market Lover (107 comments)

I don't see a digitally created currency the same way as I would view a commodity such as gold or oil. The creation itself seems troubled with the possibility of fraud. The unregulated trading of the currency is also open to fraud. As someone who was charged with fraud and conspiracy, it alarms me.

Microsoft Quietly Starts Accepting Bitcoin As Payment Method

artlu As a Market Lover (107 comments)

I find the emergence of bitcoin and other virtual currencies alarming. We have "free markets," that are governed by some type of ruling bodies be it the IMF or the Fed (not a government entity, for those that didn't know). However, the acceptance of an unregulated currency is strife with the ability for fraud and manipulation. However, as a stock trader (see my blog The Market is not Random), the emergence of these currencies that trade on pure technical patterns is something that must be embraced if it becomes publicly accepted.

I just hope it does not become publicly accepted. Can someone help convince me that bitcoin is the way to go?

Feds Plan For 35 Agencies To Collect, Share, Use Health Records of Americans

Feds Plan For 35 Agencies To Collect, Share, Use Health Records of Americans

artlu As a Federal Inmate (209 comments)

Although I knew that I would lose several civil rights, such as carrying a firearm, etc. I never believed that being put into the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Prisons would mean that my personal health history would be shared across thirty-five departments. I do not mind this, and it does not surprise me. However, this is just another example of big brother making decisions that are outside of my control.

See my story at The Market is not Random.

2 Futures Can Explain Time's Mysterious Past

artlu Time is an Art (107 comments)

If you are someone who researches the financial markets, there was a famous trader going back to the late 1800s named W.D. Gann. Gann's analysis of time was always that it was a subjective, illusory edge with respect to defining market movements, but that the definition was quantifiable at the highest of levels. In my book, "The Market is not Random.," I explore this subject more and think it is relevant for this conversation.

What's more, I think this article's timing is perfect with the recent theatrical release of "The Theory of Everything."

So, /. is time real or is it imaginary?

Interviews: Malcolm Gladwell Answers Your Questions

artlu As a New Author (48 comments)

I have been getting several questions about my book, "The Market is not Random.," lately, and it is an amazing experience to engage with readers. Between posts on my blog TMINR, twitter messages, and general emails, it has been a tremendous learning experience.

As my book has breached the top 75 on Amazon's finance section, I have noticed that I am slowly approaching the "Tipping Point" as Mr. Gladwell lovingly pointed out, and I hope to one day fall off that edge to be in a position to gather my own group of questions from the /. community.

18th Century Law Dredged Up To Force Decryption of Devices

artlu Re:Constitutional Irrelevancy (446 comments)

Your sarcasm is shallow minded and irrelevant to any real substance. I did not even insinuate this to be true. I merely stated that I observed the constitution being utilized by the US in some circumstances, but then completely ignored in others, which makes it a document utilized ex parte.

18th Century Law Dredged Up To Force Decryption of Devices

artlu Constitutional Irrelevancy (446 comments)

One thing I learned with going through the federal process (see my bio at The Market is not Random), is that the constitution is irrelevant and that the use of it becomes pure interpretation and loophole. I doubt that the current legal structure was anything close to the forefathers imagined, but never doubt that the governmental employees will utilize any and every loophole at its disposal to justify its actions. The oxymoron of united states government.

Leaked Documents Show EU Council Presidency Wants To Impair Net Neutrality

artlu Irrelevant (76 comments)

In some ways, I believe that the state of communications, globally, has already become monitored/recorded by governmental intervention, after what I witnessed through the federal system (See My Bio). The idea of bringing this down to the ISP level seems to be irrelevant with respect to what already exists. However, the purpose of purchasing access to the internet is to have a dedicated stream that is not capped. Those countries that allow this will fall behind the others.

The Downside to Low Gas Prices

artlu Lucky America (554 comments)

Although the world seems to focus on America, we must remember that aside from subsidized countries like Venezuela, Americans enjoy an average gas price that is much less than the global averages. That said, we must understand that the recent movement in crude prices is in direct correlation to the ongoing strategy that the United States has with choking off Russian monetary supplies. It's not a conspiracy theorist and as a pure market technician, which can be defined in my book The Market is not Random., the market foretold this sell off going all the way back to the swing sell in May...
