[Econ] Can You Not Die For One Second?
[M] This meme I made describes how I feel right now, why can’t my economy just be normal and just function, very upsetting. [/M] The Russian economy is in freefall, which is quite an unfortunate problem to say the least. After experiencing minor growth for the past two years, the economy has decided to kill itself, which can be quite an issue when unemployment skyrockets to 22%, and the value of the rouble drops faster than Saudi Arabia’s chance of not being stuck in an eternal civil war. Taking experience from the 2008-2009 and the 2014-2017 Russian financial crises, we are well prepared to restore economic order to the country. This must be done quickly, as the longer we stall around, the more our people shall suffer, and the odds of escaping this pit of economic despair shrink. To escape this financial crisis, there are three main fields that need to be addressed extensively to prevent the economy from detonating on itself. The first field being social welfare and the lives of the people within Russia. With unemployment at 22%, the people of Russia will be suffering, and if we are to emerge from this crisis, we need to work with them and ensure their safety and wellbeing to recover faster. The second field is the rouble, and the general state of the economy. The value of the rouble has skyrocketed, and inflation is running rampant, which if this is allowed to continue, will decimate our economy even more, so this must be brought under control as soon as possible. Furthermore, many businesses and factories in the country have slashed employees and have almost gone out of business themself, so drastic action needs to be taken there. Finally, the final field being the roots of the crisis, corruption, and the sanctions on Russia from the west. The roots of the problem need to be pruned so that a disaster like this never happens again. Russia is stuck between a rock and a hard place right now, but this is our trying moment. If we emerge from this disaster, we will come out stronger than ever before, and will become closer as a country, showing that Russia is the only way forward. Through cooperation between the people and the government, we will make it through this crisis. Field One: Welfare One of the key fields of this crisis that needs to be addressed is the welfare of the people. Unemployment is at a record 22%, and this must be addressed before anything else can be done. With this many people unemployed and not able to get jobs, this will cause havoc all across Russia as people will struggle to make ends meet in terms of living their lives. To counteract the immediate issues that this will cause, food, shelter, and other amenities for people need to be secured and guaranteed. First off, guaranteeing food for all people who are unable to afford it or acquire it while being unemployed. In recent years our production of all agricultural goods has skyrocketed due to the introduction of GMOs, so we can provide government “soup kitchens” for the unemployed to come and reliably get food. The government will provide the farmers with money for their crops, and in return the food can be placed into these free places for people to eat, therefore avoiding the concern of people starving. Housing will not be as critical of an issue, as there is state housing available, but it is limited in capacity, so something must still be done. This issue can be solved with the issue of unemployment, which I will elaborate on further. Essentially, new state housing will be built in all places that need housing for the unemployed, and this can provide temporary residences for the people to stay out of the elements when the time comes. As for things like health care and such, these are provided by the government, and due to the recession, funding for them will be raised to account for the inevitable rise in human needs. To place a major dent in the issue of unemployment, much with what the United States did during the 1930s during the Great Depression, we will be taking a leaf out of their book and creating a plethora of new programs. The major program however, will be the program known as Rehabilitation Russia, which will revolve around infrastructure improvements all across Russia, and constructing new buildings as well. This ties into building new state housing, and draws inspiration from the programs from the American New Deal in the 1930s, namely the Works Progress Administration, Civilian Conservation Corps, and the Public Works Administration. All of these programs focused on providing work to unemployed people, and working on infrastructure around the country. This same principle can be applied in Russia, hopefully to the same degree of success. The temporary jobs granted through these programs can provide enough time for the factories that these people were laid off from to be up and running again. With all of this in place, this can grant additional benefit to Russia while also ensuring that these people do not go without jobs. While not everyone will get a job from these programs, it will stem the major flow of unemployment for the meantime, and hopefully grant enough time for the major sources of employment to reopen. Additionally, for those who are unemployed, the current unemployment benefits are nowhere close to being enough to allow a person to survive. Per month currently, each person only gets around 12-80$ of unemployment money, which is insultingly low. In this recession, with a large number of people in unemployment, this number needs to be increased drastically. To aid the people who are unemployed, the minimum amount of money that can be granted per month will be raised to $150 USD, and the maximum will be raised to $960 USD, which depends on the lifestyle of each person. Someone who has a large family will receive the larger benefit, and someone who is alone will be granted the smaller funds. By raising the unemployment benefits for the recession, this will allow for the people of Russia to still be able to actually survive during these uncertain times. The funding needed for this will come from slashing other budgets across the scale, and from loans from the Central Bank of Russia. These loans, of course, will be eventually repaid once the recession is over, but something must be done in the meantime to provide the people with a form of welfare and the means to survive. Field Two: The Economy: The rouble is in freefall, and the economy is about to be hit by a large train of shinkage, which is quite an issue to summarize. The first thing that must be done for the economy will be to stabilize the rouble. To stabilize the rouble, just like in 2014, the Central Bank of Russia will withdraw $5 billion USD to purchase roubles in the Russian economy to work on stabilizing the currency. Due to the large reserves of the Russian Federation, this can easily be accomplished, and should be more than enough towards stabilizing the rouble. This being done will go a long way towards climbing out the recession, as the stabilization of the rouble will bring back confidence in the economy. To help revive the economy, a government bailout program will be the way that the economy is saved. Russia has extensive reserves of foreign currencies (henceforth referred to as forex reserves) that we have been saving for an event like this for sometime, and now is the time to use them. While $5 billion USD from our forex reserves is being spent to prop up the rouble, this will not be enough to stabilize the economy totally. Therefore a bailout program on a massive scale is required, and the estimated total cost of the government program is $200 billion USD. Around $100-150 billion of this can be gained domestically through raising the VAT and other taxes, while also dipping into our forex reserves and slashing the budget of other ministries. The rest of this money, however, will be given as a bailout loan from the IMF, depending on how much they are willing to give us. This government bailout will be critical to prevent the entire country from entering further economic collapse, and will give us a swift rebound. Where the money goes for the bailouts, however, will be very important as the money is limited as to where it will go. Therefore the money will mainly be focused on reopening factories and bringing back old job positions before the recession. Furthermore, money will also be needed to bailout other important companies that went under in the recession, so focusing on other businesses other than manufacturing is also important, as more places other than that went under. Small businesses in particular are quite important as large numbers of them went under during the crisis, so further bailouts for them are needed. The money will be divided as follows, $100 billion towards manufacturing bailouts as this sector of the economy was the hardest hit from the recession, $50 billion for small businesses, as they were also hit particularly hard, and $50 billion for other sectors of the economy that were hit, but not as hard as the previously mentioned ones. Through these targeted bailouts and financial measures, this should stem the flow from the recession. These measures emanate those from both the 2008-2009 and the 2014-2017 financial crises, and things that worked then will work now. Acquiring the funding for the bailouts domestically, however, will be difficult, and drastic measures must be taken to ensure this. The value added tax in Russia in particular will be raised from 20% up to 27% for the foreseeable future until the financial crisis has passed, and then past then it will be restored to the normal levels. In particular, the taxes on natural resource extracting will be raised up 2% from whichever level it was previously (this is done because the rates fluctuate for each resource and I don’t want to spend 3 hours writing down each and every one). Through both of these specific taxes being raised, the money from this will be enough to enable the bailout measure to be mostly be funded domestically, rather than through IMF loans. The raising of these taxes is only a temporary measure, and once the recession is over, they will go back to their standard levels so as not to make our citizens' lives even more difficult. Field Three: The Roots of the Crisis Despite having extensive measures to stop a crisis like this from even happening, they were not enough to escape the roots of the problems that led to this happening. Corruption and sanctions from the EU were the drivers of this entire recession, and something must be done to combat each and every one of them. No more measures to just delay the inevitable, these issues all right here stop this year, or the next year, Russia will no longer play victim towards the whims of the roots. Action will be taken, and these issues will cease to exist. Corruption is something that Vladimir Putin has already touched upon at an earlier time, but this time more must be done. Anti-corruption courts were already empowered, and corruption in various different sectors of the government was dealt with to remove the epidemic of bribery that existed within the country. However, one part of corruption that has not been dealt with was tax fraud and tax evasion, which now more than ever is something that needs to be clamped down on. Following the model of the United State’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS), we can mimic their actions to catch those who attempt to deprive the government of their taxes. Russia has a right rate of tax evasion and tax fraud, and by checking over reports sent by their employers and other third parties, and comparing it to their taxes, we can catch people who commit tax fraud. This is an issue that Vladmir Putin feels strongly about, so he will be personally expecting results from this now, and in the future. By attacking those who commit tax fraud and tax evasion, we can also provide the government with more revenue that is sorely needed at this time. Sanctions from the EU, however, have already been lifted significantly, and this will serve as the rallying cause for our economy. With the aid of European trade coming in, this can serve to assist our economy in climbing out of the recession. While this is not agreeable for our policy, this is something that must be done to ensure the economy does not suffer anymore than it has to. In the future, once the recession is over however, Russia will return to its former strength and prosper once again. Government interventions into the recession that are swift and precise can help bring about an end to this recession sooner and better. Following methods that worked during the last recessions and financial crises, Russia can escape this calamity stronger than before.
I wanna quit, and I have a plan, but I'm nervous...
I'm at a horrible job right now and it genuinely makes me unhappy and depressed every day, to the point where it's affecting my physical health. My workload doubled recently because 2 guys quit, and my company refuses to hire anyone new, yet they are constantly yelling at and belittling me and my coworkers because we are not getting everything done, even though we have taken on more responsibility and do different jobs that we are not paid for. I have to stay late often and don't get paid OT. Plus we have to perform tasks that we aren't trained for, which makes us look bad with customers, and we get blamed for it despite multiple requests for proper training that have gone ignored. I've about had it, and I feel like I may have a plan to get out but I'm nervous, just because of alot of unknown factors. I want to replace my income with a few different streams while working the same amount of hours per week or maybe a little less. First, I want to try delivering for doordash, if I do it 30-35 hrs a week I should make at least 2/3rds what I make at my current job. Next, I am looking to get into audiobook narraration. I have experience public reading and have a good voice for it, it's just a matter of booking jobs. I figure I could Doordash while I audition and wait to land parts, if I can land one decent paying book per month I will have fully replaced my income. Lastly I've been learning how to trade forex, and once I feel confident enough to take my prop firm evaluation I could make some serious money. And with the strategy I'm using it should only take about 30 mins a day. I have the plan in place, but I'm just so nervous to pull the trigger because I don't really have much savings to fall back on, so if audiobooks doesn't work out and I fail my prop firm eval, I'll be really scraping by with just doordash while putting alot of wear and tear on my car. Should I pull the trigger? Are my doubts justified? Idk what to do...
I’ve recently been contacted by prop trading firm Alphachain capital based in Surrey/London for a position as a junior cryptocurrency trader, although they also trade in forex The firm looks good and the CEO and mentors are of a reputable background having traded at institutional level at big banks and have mentored at LAT and also have several positive recommendations on LinkedIn. There are also many positive reviews on different platforms such as Trustpilot and positive testimonies on YouTube but I do not know the extent of legitimacy. As a recent graduate who has a real interest in the crypto-sphere and is really keen to step into prop trading this seems like an ideal opportunity. However, as part of the programme you are required to undergo 4 weeks training which, for this particular programme, costs £3000+VAT. After the training period you then get access to a funded account of $1k and have a drawdown limit of 10% for crypto. The interviewer assured me that the quality of training and mentor oversight whilst making trades makes it highly unlikely that this limit will be reached. I am in two minds as I really want to get into prop trading and it does seem like a great place to start at first glance, but I thought I would ask here if anyone has any thoughts or knowledge on the firm.
Info for Newbies (good things to know if you have no idea)
At a glance this subreddit seems to be a random assortment of weird articles, ebooks, outdated patterns, and clueless noobie threads. Let this be a little nugget for new guys that just want basic info on how to get started with stocks(not futures, options, or forex). I'm an equity day trader that traded with a firm in Chicago, and now I trade remotely with a firm based out of Boston. I'm still in my first 6 months of real trading, I'm not godly, but I feel confident in what I've learned and my ability. I have small 3 figure days, and I figure I could at least share what I know. 'Day trading' usually means you buy/sell a stock and buy/sell it back within the same day for a short term gain, sometimes holding it for seconds, sometimes for hours, but generally you don't hold over night. An over night hold can still be considered day trading, but it's getting into the realm of swing trading(which is holding for days or weeks at a time). If you want to buy even 100 shares of a stock(1 lot), you'll need thousands of dollars, so traders have their money 'leveraged'. You can go to prop firm(proprietary trading firm) and give them say $2000, they'll 'leverage' your money, and let you use probably at least $50,000 of their money. Different firms have different ratios for leverage(50:1, 20:1, etc). Some firms don't allow you to start with less than 10k of your own capital, others can let you start with less. If you want to trade stocks and use the firm's money you need a series 56 license. To get the license you need to pass a 100 multiple choice series 56 exam. Sometimes you can apply to a prop firm and get accepted to start trading with them, and if they like you you'll get training to pass the series 56 exam, and you won't have to put down a dime of your own money. If you get picked to be trained by a prop firm make sure to listen well, as the people who teach you probably make 5 figures a day. If you don't get accepted to be part of a trading program at a prop firm you can just approach a firm directly and ask for your money to be leveraged and an account to be opened for you. Usually there are a few months of paperwork, background checks, and registration that you'll have to do if you take this route. Don't be surprised to shell out a few hundred dollars just to get the process started. Don't be surprised if they take 5% of everything you make, on top of other fees on every trade, whether you make money or not. Also realize that this route will put your destiny in your hands, how you train, trade, improve and how much money you risk are completely up to you. A 'platform' is a program you use to trade with, like LightSpeed, Takion, Fusion, ThinkorSwim, etc. I did both routes, I was accepted by a firm, loved the experience, but didn't listen well, was stubborn in my ways and was cut. I then saved up my own capital and approached a prop firm by myself, studied, shelled out the cash, passed the exam, got my license, leveraged $2000 and started trading at home. Every month I pay a fee for the platform, the data I get on my platform, to have my account open, and any trades I make. From what I've learned so far you just genuinely have to be interested in making it work, and working on yourself. You can't just dream about having money, you have to love trading, the money is just a by-product of good trading. I highly recommend reading trading books, waking up early, studying the news, reviewing your success and failures, and keeping track of yourself and your finances. You have to want this 100%, and you have to be willing to struggle for a bit if you don't get it at first. You have to be willing to be right and lose money. You have to be ok with this. Your job as a day trader is to develop techniques that allow you to win over time, not with every trade. I could go into my detail on all of this but I'm starting to realize that would make for an insanely long post. If you have any questions post in this thread and I'll answer to the best of my knowledge.
Help me evaluate an offer from a forex prop trading firm
Hi /forex! This is my first time posting a thread on reddit so please be kind if I break any unwritten rules. I recently received a job offer as a junior trader in a seemingly new forex prop trading firm in my country and would like opinions on whether this is a good deal. For benchmark, a fresh college graduate usually earn about $3000/month. The living expenses including rent is about $1600/month.
The base pay for the first 3 months is $1000/month.
The first month is solely training. On the second and third month, I will be trading on a live account.
The monthly profit target to hit during the second and third month is $2300/month.
The commission pay is 35% of the excess of the profit target.
The capital given is $10,000. I'm not sure what the leverage ratio is.
If I hit the target for the first three months, I will be promoted to a trader with a higher base pay of $2800, a higher capital and also a higher profit target.
If I can't hit the target for the first three months, I will lose the job.
Edit: I forgot to mention that I would be personally liable for any loss beyond 20% of the capital. What do you think? Is $2300/month target from $10,000 capital realistic? I have no prior experience in forex so to me, 23% monthly return seems unachievable.
Hi there, I was looking into remote FX prop trading firms but was finding it hard to come across any reputable ones. Some stating that after 10 days they will back you with up to $200k which I couldn't quite get my head around as this could simply be a lucky spell for any trader. The average retail forex trader loses $12,500 annually, but traders who work with a prop firm can reverse that trend, and forex prop trading specialists can potentially earn 10 to 50 times that amount. As part of your ongoing training and support, you’ll receive a steady stream of data and resources to keep you in front of the markets and ready to seize every opportunity. For experienced traders, training may not be much important, so it is better for them to look for prop trading firms that lure them with lesser costs. For day traders hoping to join a prop trading firm full time by quitting their job, they need to keep in mind that this is not an easy task, and generating profits would take time, even months. Thus, better to first keep some reserve aside for ...
