I saw your other post and that you referenced this one in response to @Coriolanus ... so I went back to look. You were certainly on the right track but read my response... then look at the graph for Trent...
I called it bang on, explaining that when the fixtures were announced we'd see cycle spikes in each league as football returned, that players would rocket as fomo kicked in when fixtures were announced and that FI would come up with new dividends for us to win, to excite the market.
But the reason I've bumped this thread, is not to show you that I was right.... It's to show you that I aren't some overly negative guy who 'does down' the index for the sake of it or panics in a crisis. My response when football collapsed was measured, I didn't panic, I gave very specific time guides for when and how things would bounce back, even name checking Trent as the type of players who would rise. I was positively up beat about the Index, pointing out that FI had a major opportunity to shine.
Sadly, FI made some incredibly shady decisions and they crashed the market. That's not me accusing them... that's an absolute fact that they have recently acknowledged and apologised for. My tune changed from up beat to frustrated the day FI announced the bid system and that's because I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that it was going to crash the market costing many of us absolute fortunes with nothing that we could do about it.
For all the criticism I get on here, I think most of you would or indeed have acknowledged my ability to make detailed predictions that come to fruition. Deep analysis is a skill I've honed over decades and I've achieved big things in my life because of that. The truth is, when times are good and I say they're good, people like what I have to say but, when times are about to be bad and I explain why... people accuse me of having an agenda... of making "checkered" posts.
All that you get from me is my honest read of the market and my record stands for itself. When I'm passionate about something... I'm rarely proved wrong, especially about the big things.
And yeah, I'm on here a lot. I was due to open a business when COVID put that on hold, so I've been twiddling my thumbs. I see a lot of people who frankly don't understand why things happened and I do my best to educate, so that the folk in our community are better prepared. I'm all for moving forward... since the crash, I've created threads showing tools that help people trade but you have know where you are and where you came from before you can know how to go forward.
Now, as for those guys that are leaving... there's a few decent chaps like @MickTurbo, @ScouseSte and @Advinculas-Index who I'd be sorry to see leave, but it's not like they are giving up their FI credentials... I'm sure they'll be back in a few weeks and if not, well, best of luck fellas.
