Are the markets racist?

  1. Do you think that minorities have subordinate fills on trades? Could this be the reason that so many traders fail?
  2. I'm white and I've gotten bad fills on MLK, POPO and NWA.
  3. How does the market know your race when all it sees are numbers?

    Simarily, how do I know your race behind your words?

    Heck, I don't even know what country, city, street address, name of your broker, trading account ID nor what you trade...

    Unless you tell me.

    With that said, most of the failed traders I know are white.

    Maybe that has to do with the fact that most of the traders I know are white.

    I know I'm a racist, when I'm trading all I'm thinking is "I want some of that Black and Hispanic money". That is all that keeps me going some days.
  5. The market is not racist.

    It hates everyone equally.

    just when you thought the race-card could not be used in a more absurd way ... this is classic.

    Any homosexuals feel they are not being filled properly? How about you feminist-pagan-wickens!? How about the midgets, or fatties out there?
  7. They don't need to know your race. They only need to know stupid. That correlates well enough. And stupid gets the fastest worst fills.

    I want all of their money too. Dang, queer pagan money, I could really have some fun with that.. Black money might get me a short walk on the wild side and Hispanic money could get me some nice meals, but they all taste the same after awhile, probably because it's all 4 basic ingredients prepared 24 different ways.... but I could do high end stuff with that queer pagan dough... can't wait to get some of that stuff...
