    Difficult Markets Produce Fine Results – Part 2

    Caleb: I believe each child is unique, created by the Providence to fulfill a specific destiny. This might not be trading in most cases. I’d be happy if a child of mine becomes a trader, but if they choose another course of life, I’d be happy too as long as they don’t have “I beg to apply” mentality.

One thing I’ll surely do is that, I’ll inculcate the spirit of self-reliance and self-dependence into them as early as possible. Our parents don’t show us the way to be self-sufficient. They make a big mistake just by telling us to go to school and look for jobs, which to me, isn’t the best way of life. It’s a horrendous thing to be at the mercy of a boss. There’s a vast difference between living and existing. You’ll need to choose for yourself.

    From the Floor: Trudeaumania redux

    The Canadian dollar fell sharply in overnight trading after Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party swept to victory in an landslide that echoed his father Pierre's equally stunning electoral win almost half a century ago. While a Liberal victory had been expected, an outright majority was not, and markets are disturbed by what they fear will be a freewheeling, free-spending, tax-cutting spree by Canada's new prime minister.

    Turkey: Erdogan's pain and Kurdish gains

    The Guardian
    Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has suffered his biggest setback in 13 years of amassing power as voters denied his ruling party a parliamentary majority for the first time since 2002 and gave the country’s large Kurdish minority its biggest voice ever in national politics. Erdoğan's AKP party will be forced to negotiate a coalition, probably with extreme nationalists, or to call a fresh election if no parliamentary majority can be secured within six weeks.
