Top Share Brokers in India 2020 (Top 20 Stock Brokers)

Zerodha vs Upstox comparison from the perspective of a daytrader.

I already posted this on indiainvestments but I'm going to post it here too because I'm not sure if my post is going to get approved by the mods there.
Every once in a while a discussion pops up on this sub about which is better, zerodha or upstox, and many of the replies are usually from investors or swing traders. As a daytrader who's used them both for almost an year, I just want to share my thoughts on this because it might be useful for someone looking this up in the future.
In my personal opinion, zerodha is, by far, the better choice. Not because zerodha is amazing, but because upstox is terrible. Here's why:
This post ended up becoming quite longer than I expected but hopefully it will warn new users to stay away upstox unless they get their shit together but I highly doubt it's ever going to happen. Zerodha has it's flaws too but it's quite decent in my opinion and definitely the best discount broker in India. At least their customer care isn't stupid and can answer some technical questions instead of knowing literally nothing except the account-opening process.

Bottom of Pyramid Microinsurance: Hungry for Innovation

Bottom of Pyramid Microinsurance: Hungry for Innovation

Credit: www.theguardian.com
A large majority of poor in developing nations work in informal sectors, with no access to insurance. They cannot afford to buy insurance nor can they access social protection (in health, disability or unemployment cover) provided by employers or co-financed by governments. Across socioeconomic clusters, this group is most vulnerable to financial shocks, and unsurprisingly least protected.
Microinsurance offers solutions to fill these gaps and deliver insurance that is affordable to match the needs of the poor. It protects them against specific risks in exchange for regular premium payments as per insurance principles. The risks commonly encompass illness, accidental injury, death and property or crop loss. Started off as community based and mutual insurance schemes, these are now increasingly offered by traditional insurance.
A number of players form part of the microinsurance supply chain. Ranging from insurance regulators to carriers, administrators, it comprises delivery channels, technology platform and service providers (such as health facilities or funeral organizations).

The opportunity for micro-insurance varies from region to region. The potential market has been estimated to be 3-4 billion policies generating $30 - $50 billion in annual revenue.
The popularity of products is also region dependent, basis the risks which affect the region the most - such as earthquakes in Chile or drought in Kenya. Microinsurers have been most successful in APAC, where two-thirds of the poor are to be found. India and Bangladesh are fastest growing, followed by China and Philippines. The countries in the right side of the below chart have favorable regulatory and business environment, both being vital enabling factors.
https://preview.redd.it/nbsdomamc6h51.png?width=804&format=png&auto=webp&s=3ae94962e03bb410c44ce6e298af414e73bda4c7
Microinsurance does not have any single definition as such. In South Africa, for instance, it is considered as a max benefit of R50k per insured life, while in Philippines, its the amount of premium that's less than10 percent of current daily minimum wage rate for non-agri workers.
Differences from traditional insurance are:
  • Presumes low awareness of insurance as a concept.
  • Assumes poorly educated customers, so communication must be straightforward.
  • Executed as conveniently and simply as possible, including eligiblity requirements, exclusions, payments anc and claims.
  • Relies on group pricing, due to lack of personal data
  • Links premiums to other payments, such as loan repayments.
History of Microinsurance
Microinsurance is likened to be an outgrowth of microfinancing projects developed by Bangladeshi Nobel Prize-winning economist Muhammad Yunus, that helped millions of low-income individuals set up businesses, buy houses.
American International Group Inc. (AIG) was one of the first carriers to offer microinsurance and sell policies in Uganda in 1997. It was soon joined by other large insurers including Swiss Re, Munich Re, Allianz and Zurich Financial Services. Today many innovative microinsurance products have been developed to protect the working poor against the financial impact of losses.
The growth of microinsurance
Despite almost 2 decades of focus on the under and uninsured, microinsurance is estimated to reach just under 300 million people across the developing world, ~10% of the potential market.
Partnership is one of the pillars of an effective microinsurance business model, but it is not an easy endeavour. Partners rarely have identical priorities and work with competing constraints which need to be overcome for a successul model.
Four business models prevalent as distribution channels are a)partner agent model provider driven model c)charitable insurance model d)mutual/cooperative insurance model
The partner-agent is the most common and includes MFIs, NGOs, cooperatives and retailers. It piggybacks on the partners infrastructure and trust, thus helping reduce costs and speeden time to market, facilitating scale. For this model to succeed, partner's staff need to be educated in insurance. Since the partner owns the client interface, the partnership requires intensive management. A good example is Hollard in South Africa that sells inexpensive funeral insurance through budget clothing retail chain Pep Stores.
The below chart of distribution mix in four growing microinsurance markets shows finance institutions are among most favorable distribution partners, particularly for MFI partners in India, Indonesia and Philippines. Agents and brokers are also a popular distribution network for microinsurance, followed by retail and commercial networks.

A key challenge facing microinsurers are availability of products designed to meet customer needs while meeting the carrier's operational and cost requirements. While simpler products are easier to market and administer, they also provide limited benefits. Trade-offs are inevitable and innovation is invaluable.
The below figure highlights the prevalence of credit life and life products, understandable as partnership with microfinance institutions is commonly a distribution medium. The high proportion of life insurance signifies the relative simplicity to develop this product. For the market to evolve, however, there is a need to move towards more complex products such as health and agricultural insurance.

Challenges And Need For Innovation
When it comes to microinsurance, innovation is more than a response to customer demand for more convenient service - it is usually an operational imperative. Insurers leverage technology with the aim of offering simple, affordable products to mostly illiterate customers in locations difficult to reach.
We look below at few examples of carriers and their innovations that helped them overcome challenges.
Easy availability of mobile technology has been a major enabling factor in most markets. UAP Insurance in Kenya enables farmers to buy crop insurance by using their mobile phone to send in a photograph of the barcode on a bag of fertilizer or seed, and to pay premiums using M-Pesa mobile banking system.
Similarly, real-time connectivity with the carriers' system is an important factor to enable bulk processing and servicing of low-premium policies with minimal user invovlement and at lowest cost. An exmple is IFMR Trust Holdings that works with HDFC Ergo GIC in India to use radio-frequency identification tags on insured cattle to minimize claims fraud.
Pay-as-you-go insurance platforms that use cloud technology are a necessary means to achieve an adaptable and extendable microinsurance operating model. Max New York Life in India has extended their virtual network by distributing scratch cards through small retailers. Customers pay premiums by buying a card and texting the concealed code to the insurer.
Despite the strides being made by carriers, the operational challenges that continue to derail the best of efforts include:
  • Lack of information on consumers
  • Consumers beyond current reach
  • Different and new consumer needs
  • Consumers inexperienced with formal financial services
  • Constrained business models
Adoption of sophisticated technology can have a powerful impact, but managing the significant inhibitors effectively is undoubtedly imperative to succeed in this market.
Among common innovative solutions driven by insurers are index-based insurance, grants from governments and/or donors to develop infrastructure, partnering with weather stations to collect meteorological data, risk-spreading to multinational insurers and reinsurers, and technology to manage fraud.
Additionally, new technology enabled partnerships increase the distribution reach of insurance. Peer to peer insurance enables new operational models and product categories. Demand based insurance charges premium per use. Alternative and digital data allow for improved customer knowledge. For example, online consumer retail purchase history can better inform about a potential consumer's risk profile and premium pricing.
Leveraging digital infrastructure reduces marginal cost of insurance delivery. e.g. Saldo in Mexico uses blockchain to verify transactions to reduce fraud. Afrisure in Zimbabwe uses satellite data to enable provision of agricultural insurance at scale.
Sustainable Profitability
Profitability has not been easy to achieve in microinsurance, being a sophisticated offering to most consumers, who mistrust it and cannot easily understand. It is also an emerging area for insurers, who have limited knowledge to underwrite accurately. Over time, these are expected to smoothen out, insurers will learn from early mistakes and build more efficient distribution channels.
The key to profitability might just lie in the business model. In order to be profitable, a low margin/high volume philosophy will be the preferred path. Microinsurers will have a compelling need to price products accurately with low margins, and then sell large volumes. The challenges will manifest in that voluntary insurance products sold on an individual basis will be more expensive to distribute and service than mandatory group polices linked to loans. Nevertheless, as carriers manage to maintain growth in revenue greater than growth in incremental costs, they will derive profitability through scale.

My view of the war so far and my guesses as to what happens next.

Before I begin, please don’t spoil anything past the events of light novel volume 6.
1.) I’ve watched the anime and read the officially translated Light Novels (i.e. until volume 6). I haven’t read the manga. The available maps are not very good so I’m using my best guesses at times.
2.) This started out as my wanting to write a short summary and set of guesses as to what was going on but just kept growing.
3.) I will be using real world names for geographical entities/locations and in-universe names for political entities.
The Empire:
- Core territories:
- Held territories listed as “hot spots”:
o Imperial Ostland
o Imperial Dacia:
o Unredeemed Ildoa:
- List of colonies unknown
- Strategic situation at start of war (i.e. June-1923):
- Strategic situation at the end of volume 6 (i.e. April-1927):
The Republic:
- Core territories:
- Known colonies:
- Strategic situation at start of war:
- Strategic situation at the end of volume 6:
The Commonwealth:
- Core territories:
- List of colonies unknown but likely has large colonial possessions
- Strategic situation at start of war:
- Strategic situation at the end of volume 6:
The Entente Alliance:
- Core territories:
- List of colonies unknown, possibly none

- Strategic situation at start of war:
- Strategic situation at the end of volume 6:
The Unified States:
- Presumably the USA but no map available
- Strategic situation at start of war:

- Strategic situation presumably identical to Switzerland, i.e. armed neutrality
The Ispagna Collective:
- Only labelled map seen in anime
- Appears to be the entire Iberian Peninsula
- Strategic situation:
The Turkman Principalities:
- Possibly the Ottoman Empire but no map available.
- Ildoa is trying to push colonies into some of their territories.
- No further information available
My analysis:
- Of the Empire:
- Of the Entente portion of the war:
- Of the Rhine Front:
- Of the Dacian portion of the war:
- Of the “Southern continent”:
- Of the war with the Federation:

- On the Unified States:
- On Kampfgruppe Salamander:
- On the insurgency in the Entente:
Guesses on the long-term:
- It is known that the Empire would lose the war but it is not yet stated how and it is unclear what the Empire will look like post-war.
- It is my hope that Carlo Zen does not go down the route of the Empire making one last all-out offensive push to convince its enemies that defeating the Empire outright would be too costly and then sue for peace. These are the reasons:
- My guess as to what happens towards the end the war:
- My guess as to what triggers serious peace talks:
- The Empire will agree to a conditional surrender:
- All details regarding Tanya, the 203rd and Being X are heavily classified by all sides:
- As regards to Tanya:
If anyone actually read this, thanks for reading. Of course, I expect most to all of my predictions to be wrong but I had fun writing this.

What are some of your stock picks that the market is pessimistic about right now?

This post about Buffett got me thinking about what stocks Mr. Market is pessimistic about right now and I thought I'd share some of my picks. These are stocks that have trailed the market the last few years, but not without reason. With the exception of BRK.B, I will list dividend paying stocks that I believe can continue paying a growing dividend until their stock price recovers.
BRK.B has trailed SPY for most of the this bull market and that's understandably upset some investors. I think a big part of it is because a lot of companies have been aggressive with buybacks while BRK.B is extremely conservative when it comes to repurchasing shares (they only just recently started buying back small chunks). Their KHC stake hasn't panned out well so far. They've got huge positions in financials which have trailed the broader market (maybe a case can be made for them being undervalued?) However, their operating businesses and dividends from the stock portfolio have been piling cash into their war chest which helps them broker deals like this. It's only a matter of when (not if), the next recession comes along Buffet and Munger (or their management team if they are no more) deploy that cash for other favorable deals.
MO is ranked as one of the best performing stocks of all time because it goes through extended periods of undervaluation which allows dividends to pick up shares at dirt cheap prices. MO has been beaten down because of declining cigarette volumes and because it appears they overpaid for JUUL. If you take out the BUD stake and assign a value of $0 to their JUUL and CRON stakes, their legacy tobacco business (cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars), trades for a FCF yield of over 11%. The dividend is safe and will continue to grow, but I don't expect the stock price to recover until JUUL starts to contribute to their FCF and cig volume declines stabilize. What they lack in geographic diversity, they more than make up in the diversity of their investments and businesses.
BTI has been beaten down for similar reasons. Shortly after they took over RAI (after taking on significant debt) in 2017, the US cig market started showing accelerated volume declines. They are also the dominant player in menthol cigarettes in the US, which makes them more vulnerable than Altria to a menthol ban. That being said, at its current price, they generate around $10 billion in FCF which amounts to a FCF yield of 12.5%. About 60% of that is paid in dividends, while the rest can goes towards debt reduction. They are the second largest tobacco company after PM and often hold a dominant position in certain developing economies (They own roughly 30% of ITC, Indian Tobacco Company which runs a cigarette monopoly in India). Their most recent earnings report showed a strong underlying business that's also poised for growth. They are also well diversified in terms of product offerings (cigs, smokeless tobacco, vapes and heat not burn)
PM while not as cheap as the other two, it earns a premium because of the Marlboro brand and their lack of exposure to the US in the cigarette market. The stock initially dropped last year because IQOS showed slowing growth. When talks of a merger with Altria surfaced, the stock dropped some more. However, the talks are now off and their most recent earnings report indicates that IQOS sales have picked up again. The company has been hurt by a strong USD, but their underlying business has shown currency neutral earnings growth that's 8-10% which shows the strength of their business. As IQOS has now been approved for sale in the US by the FDA, it should alleviate their currency issues a bit. Not to mention, any future weakness in the USD will benefit PM. The stock currently has a 6% dividend yield that is safe. This is a slightly dated post, but still mostly relevant for BTI and PM today.
XOM is sporting a dividend yield of over 5% (the largest it's been in 20 years). The oil and gas industry as a whole has suffered over the last decade from two oil crashes and growing concerns about climate change. XOM has also had issues with meeting their production goals the last few years. That being said, they are one of the best run companies in the oil and gas sector. They have paid a growing dividend for 35 years and despite two oil crashes in the last decade, they have managed to grow their dividend 6% annually while still maintaining the best balance sheet in the industry (many other either froze or cut their dividend). They have been selling off old assets to invest in growth and are confident they can double their earnings by 2025 assuming oil is $60 a barrel. Here's an informative post about investing in Oil by Joshua Kennon. Also, here's a really good book that talks about the amount of political power the company has in the US and abroad. The stock price will fluctuate with the price of oil, but the dividend will continue to grow.
WFC used to be considered one of the best large banks in the US until the fraudulent accounts scandal surfaced a few years ago. The fed has imposed an asset cap which has causing the bank to miss out on a strong economy. The stock will likely trade sideways until the asset cap is lifted, but until then, the bank plans on rewarding shareholders with dividends and buybacks. They pan on buying back 10% of all outstanding shares over the course of a year in addition to a 4% dividend. This will supercharge returns when the asset cap is lifted and WFC can make more loans again. Also, WFC and USB are less susceptible to interest rates as they earn a significant chunk of their revenues in fees, unlike their peers. It's currently trading at a P/B of 1.2. The dividend is safe and will continue to grow at 10% or so. With a starting yield of 4%, it makes for a good entry point.
ABBV, BMY and PFE are some stocks in the pharma sector that deserve some notice, but I haven't looked into them much. The uncertainty around these stocks revolve around expiring patents/pipeline concerns and leverage taken on for mergers. Pharma stocks like oil can be volatile but can provide tremendous returns over the long run. With consumer staples and tobacco, pharmaceuticals have been one of the best performing industries (all three of these stocks are on the original list).
Nothing is guaranteed, but I feel like at these prices, there is a decent margin of safety in these stocks. Hopefully a few of them pay off moving forward. What are some of your picks?

The Anunnaki , The Vampire and the Structure of Dissent

by Marcus LiBrizzi
from Reconstruction Website

The vampire, an archetypal figure who pops up in many myths from around the world, is most familiar to Western audiences in the form Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Anne Rice’s Lestat - aristocratic bloodsucking immortals of unholy origin. In more paranoid circles, vampires have been re-imagined as a race of alien beings called the Anunnaki, who have traveled from beyond to control and colonize the planet Earth (in fact, they’ve been in control for quite a while now). Looking at the conspiracy theories of underground celebrity David Icke, Marcus LiBrizzi offers his own theory about the meaning of these horrific beings for a world caught in the grip of a grand economic reorganization. Linking these myths to the realities of transnational capital and the Network Society, LiBrizzi is able to craft his own compelling narrative about the horrors of the New World Order.

<1> The latest incarnation of the vampire - in the conspiracy theories of David Icke - reveals the critical, revolutionary heart of the vampire legend. Discourse on the vampire appears above all to provide a structure of dissent, a metaphorical means of representing and soliciting critiques of the social order. The Anunnaki form of the vampire - in its immersion in the constellation of contemporary conspiracy theories, in its reflection on global capitalism, and in its blurring of historical and fictional narratives - has moved this structure of dissent from the cloak of darkness to the light of day. <2> Considered by some to be the reigning conspiracy theorist in the US, David Icke (who is British) formulates his theories of a worldwide, age-old conspiracy around an extraterrestrial race of beings called the Anunnaki. Self-styled the "most controversial author and speaker in the world," David Icke has been subject to much ridicule but has nonetheless become an industry, publishing eleven books, producing video and audiotapes, embarking on a worldwide lecture circuit, and creating a website that allegedly attracts 10,000 visitors a day (Canadian Par. 13).
A former soccer player from a working-class family, Icke became a household name in the UK as a national sports and news reporter for the BBC and as the spokesperson for the Green Party ("About" Par. 7-8). Starting a full-time writing career in the early 1990s, Icke began with New Age inspired works like Truth Vibrations (1991), which combines accounts of his self transformation with psychically-imparted warnings on the imminent destruction of the earth, from there moving towards conventional conspiracy theories, and finally, beginning with his 1999 book The Biggest Secret, focusing his conspiracy theories around the Anunnaki and their nefarious involvement in human history. <3> The Anunnaki, whose name is Sumerian, meaning "those who from Heaven to Earth Came" (Icke 5), refer to a reptilian race that originated from the legendary planet known as Nibiru (Planet X), or the place of the crossing, which has a 3,600 year elliptical orbit that takes it between Jupiter and Mars and then out into space (5). For the past 450,000 years, according to Icke, the Anunnaki have been ruling earth in different guises and from different dimensions. Through genetic engineering, the Anunnaki have manipulated the evolution of humans as a slave race. "The Anunnaki created bloodlines to rule humanity on their behalf," he writes, "and these … are the families still in control of the world to this day" (9). The interbreeding of the rich and powerful (primarily, for Icke, the European aristocracy and the Eastern Establishment of the US) is not done for reasons of snobbery but rather, "to hold a genetic structure that gives them certain abilities, especially the ability to ’shape-shift’ and manifest in other forms" (9). Working with these crossbreeds are full-blooded Anunnaki, some physically present on earth, others influencing individuals and events psychically from what Icke calls "the lower fourth dimension" (25). Forming a "Brotherhood" or secret society network, the Anunnaki have effectively "hijacked the planet" (46). <4> The recurring motif in the discourse on the Anunnaki is vampirism. In fact, so strong is this component in their depiction that it’s safe to say that Icke’s work represents one of the most recent developments in the discourse of the vampire. "While vampire beliefs are varied," writes James Craig Holte, "certain elements of the vampire myth are consistent. The most important are the inability to experience death, the importance of blood, and the sexual connection between vampire and victim" (246). Other structural similarities between the traditional vampire and the Anunnaki include shape-shifting, hypnotism, and links to secret societies. After establishing the Anunnaki as a manifestation of the vampire, we’ll unpack the implications of this figure, using the tools of a Marxist critical practice. <5> The Anunnaki, like traditional vampires, enjoy eternal or extenuated life spans. Icke claims that, "the fourth dimensional reptilians wear their human bodies like a genetic overcoat and when one body dies the same reptilian ’moves house’ to another body and continues the Agenda into another generation" (46). One type of creature Icke describes is a reptilian "inside" a human physical body; "it seems that … the Anunnaki need to occupy a very reptilian dominated genetic stream to do this, hence certain bloodlines always end up in the positions of power. Other less pure crossbreed human-reptilians are those bodies which are possessed by a reptilian consciousness from the fourth dimension and these are people who psychics see as essentially human, but ’overshadowed’ by a reptilian" (46). Crossbreeding to infuse reptilian genetics into human bloodlines, the Anunnaki gain the means to defy death, as we conceive it. <6> In respect to blood drinking, Icke is very clear: The Anunnaki drink blood, which they need in order to exist in this dimension and hold a human form (288). Embedded in this need lies another parallel between the Anunnaki and the figure of the vampire - the power to shape-shift (from reptilian to human form for the Anunnaki, and usually from vampire form to that of bat or even mist for the traditional vampire). But the Anunnaki also feed off fear, aggression, and other negative emotions. Thus, while blood is needed as a vital life force, the Anunnaki are also addicted to "adrenalchrome," a hormone released in the human body during periods of extreme terror (290, 331). Rather than sucking the blood directly from the necks of their victims, the Anunnaki apparently slash the throats of their victims from left to right and consume the blood out of goblets (303). Icke claims that the origin of the vampire stories are the blood drinking and "energy sucking" rituals of the Anunnaki (26). "In India," he writes, "it was called soma and in Greece it was ambrosia, some researchers suggest. This was said to be the nectar of the gods and it was - the reptilian gods who are genetic blood drinkers" (288). <7> In the sexual connection between slayer and victim, the Anunnaki also share another similarity with the traditional vampire. However, depictions of the Anunnaki by Icke contain none of the erotic allure and seductiveness that distinguish many vampire texts. Instead, the sexual bond between the Anunnaki and their victims is characterized by violence - rape, murder, and Satanic ritual. "Satanism at its core is about the manipulation and theft of another person’s energy and consciousness," writes Icke, who states that "sex is so common in Satanic ritual because at the moment of orgasm, the body explodes with energy which the Satanists and the reptiles can capture and absorb" (295). For Icke, of course, the demons honored or appeased by satanic sex rituals are none other than the reptilian Anunnaki (34). Sex is also a fundamental tool of the Anunnaki mind control program and, more prosaically, it figures prominently as a means of blackmail. The picture that emerges is one involving vast networks of sexual abuse and ritual murder - graphic accounts of satanic practices at the playgrounds for world leaders, such as the Bohemian Grove, a 2,700 acre compound north of San Francisco - mass graves for victims drained of their blood and libidinal energies - and the cultivation of sexual crimes to create an energy field that nourishes these rapacious ETs. <8> There are other shared traits between the traditional vampire and the Anunnaki, for example, the role of secret societies. One of Icke’s chief contributions to the discourse on the vampire lies in his immersion of this figure into a vast web of clandestine organizations, from ancient mystery schools and cults like the Brotherhood of the Snake to the Knights Templar and the Masonic Order, from global entities like the UN, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations to drug cartels, satanic churches, and the Black Nobility. A keystone in this architecture of conspiracy is the Order of Draco, which conjures up the most famous of all vampires - Count Dracula - and underscores his demonic, draconian, and reptilian associations. "According to Laurence Gardner, the name Dracula means ’Son of Dracul’ and was inspired by Prince Vlad III of Transylvania-Wallachia, a chancellor of the Court of the Dragon in the 15th century. This prince’s father was called Dracul within the Court" (56). In their network of secret societies, of which the Order of Draco is but a single manifestation, the Anunnaki highlight the conspiratorial dimension of all vampires. Finally, the Anunnaki share with the traditional vampire the capacity to hypnotize: Icke writes that reptilian bloodlines, "have the ability to produce an extremely powerful hypnotic stare, just like a snake hypnotizing its prey and this is the origin of giving someone the ’evil eye’" (42). <9> Icke’s paradigm displays more than the vitality, persistence, and adaptive qualities of the vampire legend. His theories reveal the dissident energies contained already in the vampire legacy. <10> To begin with, Icke’s work represents a major fusion of the vampire cult and the field of conspiracy theories. Richard Hofstadter, in his famous essay "The Paranoid Style in American Politics" (1963) claims that the, "distinguishing thing about the paranoid style is not that its exponents see conspiracies or plots here and there in history, but that they regard a ’vast’ … conspiracy as the motive force in historical events. History is a conspiracy" (29). Conspiracies, even when they’re not construed as vast, over-arching plots, however, have an internal, integrative logic. In other words, there is a momentum in conspiracy theories to pull in all other theories, and finally to arrive at a state in which everything is connected. Part of Icke’s popularity lies in his ability to integrate most contemporary American conspiracy theories into one over-arching framework. Situated squarely in the center of this design is the ancient figure of the vampire. Thus, the vampire (or, more specifically, the Anunnaki Vampire) has colonized the field of conspiracy theories - government-sponsored alien cover-ups, the New World Order, suspicious deaths, the secret government, suppressed research, the intrigues of the CIA, and the list goes on indefinitely. <11> From a Marxist perspective, of course, this development is more than just a formal or aesthetic innovation, for many of the conspiracy theories now circulating in the cultural medium of the US contain, at their core, critical, dissenting, and rebellious points of view (encompassing both extreme right and left) that are articulated in opposition to the social, political, and cultural status quo. While Hofstadter claims that the US has no monopoly on conspiracism, other scholars like Peter Knight hold that conspiracy theories hold an indispensable place in American ideology formation, and that current, "conspiracy theories can be read in part as panicked responses to the increasing multiculturalism and globalization of the present" (5). Revolutionary or reactionary, however, these theories are inimical to the governing elite and represent a tradition of oppositional practice. As Knight puts it, "conspiracy theory has become the lingua franca of a countercultural opposition that encompasses a vast spectrum of political thinking from the committed to the casual" (6-7). <12> An initial difficulty in seeing the vampire as a symbol of the ruling class - capitalist or otherwise - lies in the diverse variations taken on by vampires in different places and times. As Brian Frost puts it, "the vampire is a polymorphic phenomenon with a host of disparate guises to its credit" (1). Among the various legendary "guises" of the vampire inventoried by Frost are spirit vampires, astral vampires, psychic vampires, animal vampires, and real-life vampires who are, "sadistic criminals … urged on by a physical craving for blood" (15). Complicating the picture is the fact that Bram Stoker’s character of Count Dracula, who for many encapsulates the aristocratic ethos of the vampire, "lacks precisely what makes a man ’noble’: servants. Dracula stoops to driving the carriage, cooking the meals, making the beds, cleaning the castle" (Moretti 90). Furthermore, in some of the earliest European vampire legends, the undead feed off the living members of their own families (Murgoci 18), which at first glance mitigates the social-class dynamic often conjured up in the image of aristocratic vampires draining the lifeblood of their locals. <13> There is, nevertheless, a critical and even radical dimension to the figure of the vampire, who, as a parasite, circulates as a political metaphor. The word vampire has from the start been used in oppositional literature as a symbol of an exploiting class, government, industry, or institution. A decade, "after the introduction of the word ’vampire’ in an English publication in 1732, (an account of the investigation of Arnold Paul in Serbia) … a serious utilization of the vampire as a political metaphor occurred in Observations on the Revolution of 1688 (… published in 1741)"
which identified foreign investors as "’Vampires of the Publick’" (Melton 538).
Only "a few years later, in 1764, Voltaire, in his Philosophical Dictionary," refers to "vampires" as "’stock-jobbers, brokers, and men of business who sucked the blood of the people in broad daylight’" (538). <14> But it was Marx who first suggested that the vampire can be interpreted as a metaphor of capitalism and who also implied a method for this interpretation. In volume one of Capital (1867), he writes that, "capital is dead labour, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labour, and lives the more, the more labour it sucks" (342). Extrapolating on this analogy, Franco Moretti provides a reading of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, writing, "If the vampire is a metaphor for capital, then Stoker’s vampire, who is of 1897, must be the capital of 1897" (92). Accordingly, Moretti sees Count Dracula as the expression or figure of monopoly capitalism, which, to the 19th century bourgeoisie, could not be recognized as an emerging force but only as a relic of the past displaced into the present (93). Whether or not one agrees with Moretti’s reading of the Count, it is his method that’s of most value. As Rob Latham pus it, "Moretti stresses that, while the vampire is a perfect general image for the basic mechanism of capitalist development, individual vampire texts illuminate specifically the historical phases of capitalism in which they are produced" (129). <15> Applying Moretti’s method, we can perceive the Anunnaki as metaphorical of the unique forms capitalism has taken by the 21st century. Certainly, Anunnaki vampires embody the market for genetic engineering as well as space exploration. These dimensions, in fact, are projected back into the origins of Anunnaki control over earth and its resources: travel from another planet, interdimensional traffic, and a crossbreeding agenda coterminous with the evolution of the human race. Anunnaki vampires also control finance, which was undergoing a tremendous transformation and development during the time when Icke was writing that, of all the spheres of Anunnaki domination, "the most important … in terms of control, is banking" (207).
Electronic banking, credit, and the demediation of stock exchange through on-line trading are some of the key elements in the recent development of the finance industry (Castells 152-53). But we can go deeper than this kind of analysis, and discover in the discourse on the Anunnaki examples of remarkable changes, not in select markets, but rather in the very structure of the economy. <16> In this, more significant sense, the Anunnaki are linked to present-day capitalism through their association with global control. Icke consistently depicts these alien bloodsuckers as monopolizing world leadership positions in government, finance, religion, and the media. In this sense, Anunnaki vampires represent a demonized expression of the unique form capitalism has taken during the very period in which Icke’s theories were formulated, published, and popularized. The late 1990s issued in - for the first time in history - a global economy, defined by Manuel Castells as, "an economy whose core components have the institutional, organizational, and technological capacity to work as a unit in real time, or in chosen time, on a planetary scale" (102). Thus, "this is a new brand of capitalism, technologically, organizationally, and institutionally distinct" (160-61). <17> The forces spearheading this change derive in part from key industries, notably information technology - centering on the Internet - finance, and biotechnology (Castells 161). Other contributing factors in the formation of the global economy are government policies that restructured capitalism through laws deregulating and liberalizing economic activity (148). The global economy has, of course, catapulted the scale of capitalism; "for the first time in history the whole planet is capitalist or dependent on its connection to global capitalist networks" (160-61). However, as Castells points out, the global economy, "is not a planetary economy … because it does not embrace all economic processes in the planet, it does not include all territories, and it does not include all people in its workings, although it does affect directly or indirectly the livelihood of all humankind" (132). Thus the global economy is significant, not only for it inclusivity, but also for its significant and shifting exclusions, marginalizations, and hidden bypasses fraught through its great grid or network of power relations. <18> Anunnaki vampires are perfectly suited to, and a perfect representation of, a global economy in the scope of their engagement and their profile in emergent industries, but there are other ways as well. This is because their secret agenda has always already been the creation of a one-world government - a New World Order - bypassing nations and creating a system or web from which there is no escape. The New World Order figures prominently in conspiracy theories and in literature such as Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World (1932) and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). But during the millenium and start of the 21st century, demonstrations against globalism have been on the rise, responding to rapid developments in transnationalism.
Another aspect of the Anunnaki relevant here is their multicultural image. The Anunnaki have been written retroactively into all mythological systems, making them true transnationals. For example, they people the pages of the Indian Vedas, Babylonian myths, as well as the books of the Bible, and they are at the heart of ancient snake-worshipping cults worldwide. Moreover, they are literally seeded into the human genome through the Anunnaki engineering of the race, interbreeding alien genetics into all peoples, symbolized, for example in Genesis, as the saliva Jehovah mixes with clay to form the first man. <19> Not surprisingly, Anunnaki narratives have a lot to say in terms of the location, construction, and commodification of the self. Unlike traditional vampires who feed solely off a victim’s blood or soul, the Anunnaki thrive off of negative energies such as fear and aggression. These ETs drain individuals of their sense of wellbeing through the manipulation and absorption of libidinal energies and - ultimately - the theft of consciousness and agency. On the one hand, the location of the self that the Anunnaki attack seems closely linked to consumerist notions. For example, New Age self-actualization products as well as the market for energy drinks - even caffeine-enhanced water - not to mention designer drugs - are only a few of the new industries catering profitably to the very malady Icke derives from Anunnaki domination.
And, of course, Icke’s works themselves represent a (profitable) venture in a multi-million dollar market for conspiracy theories in American popular culture. On the other hand, discourse on the Anunnaki is not necessarily complicit with the capitalist system that produces such effects. A current line of cultural theory, "has alleged that the modalities of consumer culture - and the forms of subjectivity they enable - do not necessarily integrate seamlessly into the capitalist society which has mobilized them but may instead be potentially subversive of its purposes" (Latham 132). The consumption of Icke’s works - in fact, the growing market for conspiracism in the US - would seem to be a case in point here, disseminating and perpetuating an oppositional worldview, a "hermeneutics of suspicion," while contributing to the accumulation of capital. <20> Another revealing dimension of Anunnaki vampires lies in their collective depiction; unlike many accounts of the vampire, Icke’s theories do not revolve around distinct Anunnaki individuals but rather focuses on them as a class or group; in this sense the Anunnaki do not convey the same individualistic focus so often encountered in vampire narratives. Even Anunnaki forms of consciousness are best described as a "groupthink" mentality. On this, Icke writes that, "the reptilians seek … to influence everyone by stimulating the behavioral patterns of the reptile region of the brain: hierarchical thinking aggression conflict division lack of compassion a need for ritual" (46) Symbolic of contemporary capitalism, this collective depiction of the Anunnaki reflects the rise of networks, and their decentering development, which have instrumentally caused - and are themselves produced by - the new global economy. The network supersedes the individual as the subject of the vampire narrative. Here Castells, speaking on the network society of global economics, is instructive: "For the first time in history, the basic unit of economic organization is not a subject, be it individual (such as the entrepreneur …) or collective (such as the capitalist class, the corporation, the state)" (214). Instead, "the unit is the network, made up of a variety of subjects and organizations, relentlessly modified as networks adapt" (214). <21> In their networked, post-subjective form of the vampire, the Anunnaki are metaphorical of the precise trajectory assumed by contemporary capitalism. Network is the same term Icke uses to describe the reptilian base of operations today, writing, "after thousands of years of evolution, the reptilian network is now a vast and often unfathomable web of interconnecting secret societies, banks, businesses, political parties, security agencies, media owners, and so on" (259). Discourse on the Anunnaki vampire is in step with broader trends in American conspiracy theories, themselves responses to ideological crises associated with post-modernism and the growth of a network society. Writing on conspiracy theories in the postwar US, Timothy Melley points out that, "the term ’conspiracy’ rarely signifies a small, secret plot any more. Instead, it frequently refers to the workings of a large organization, technology, or system, a powerful and obscure entity so dispersed that it is the very antithesis of the traditional conspiracy" (59). Melley argues that conspiracy theories in the US have historically been an ideological means of validating individualism. And this new, impersonal breed of conspiracism reflects anxiety over the loss of individuality and agency and stands as both "an acknowledgment, and rejection, of postmodern subjectivity" (65).
<22> Perhaps most revealing of all is the dissolution of the boundary between fantasy and reality - the presentation of the vampire as an historical agent rather than a fictional character. Deeply ironic and radical, this slippage of fact and fantasy drives the vampire legacy much closer to its critical core. If the traditional vampire articulates dissent, it also distorts the representation of real relations, which are displaced into the realm of the imaginary. In the form of the Anunnaki, however, vampires have infiltrated the field of conspiracy theories, spilling from the page onto the pavement, as it were. Moving from metaphor to a kind of mimesis of the grotesque, the vampire legacy shape-shifts - its implicit charge evolving into an explosive critique.

We created this website to bring together all the tools and services you’ll need to start trading for real. If you want to start taking advantage of the markets now, without having to become an expert, our free trading signal. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it with us.
Here you’ll learn the basic terminology to be a successful Forex trader. To begin learning Forex, you’ll need to have a good grasp on the basic definitions, rules and terms used by professional traders. At first, this can sound daunting but after we spell out the fundamentals, it will become clearer and you’ll be on your way to becoming a Forex trader. We will cover terms, such as; base currency, the quote currency, micro lots, mini lots, standard lots, long position, short position, pips, spread, margin and many more.
Someone who is using more than 10% of the whole equity into a trading session is probably not having a good money management strategy. Because you should always trade safe and also because the market may turn back on you and you would find yourself in a big margin problem. With good risk management, having 10% of your account invested can bring consistent returns with no problems.

Profit Rate :

Some traders can’t make 10% per year. Others can safely and consistently make 30% per month and they are not afraid to show their verified performance as a solid proof of what they offer. While taking into consideration a proper risk and money management, you should never aim to make millions in one week with a small account because that would probably mean hitting margin call. Just remember: a good strategy and analysis will always bring profits. And if at the end of the month you have only 1% profit, that means you don’t have -1% loss.

Choosing the Best Forex Broker :

In order to start trading Forex, you will need to find the right online Forex broker for you with the cash rebate program. It’s important to find the right Forex broker for your trading needs according to several important criteria, such as security, customer service, trading platform, transaction costs, live quotes and more. While reading our guide on how to choose the best FOREX BROKERS.

Forex for free :

Most Forex brokers offer many free options, services, tips and information to help you trade better. Real-time charts and news, help guides, and blogs help you understand and learn about the market in real time. There are also many “demo” accounts to try the market before putting in real money.

Why Trade Forex?

The Forex market is fast becoming the most attractive and popular market in the world. The traditional stock is no longer relevant and traders are moving fast into the Forex. We collected here a few reasons to show you why this is happening and what advantages the Forex market has to make is so popular.
We choose to focus on a few very important advantages of the Forex trading and the reasons that people choose this market:
forex is the largest financial market in the world. The daily volume of the Forex market is huge over $3 trillion per day. This makes the stability of the market very good compared to stock trading. The price in the Forex market is exactly what you see is what you get and you can follow it very easily.
Forex trading simplifies everything, there’s no clearing fees, no exchange fees, no government fees, no brokerage fees, no middlemen. The elimination of the middlemen gets the traders closer to the actual trade and makes the traders responsible for their pricing. The brokers are usually paid through a service called “bid-ask spread”.
The Forex market is open 24 hours a day. Opening on Monday morning (in Australia) and closing in the afternoon (in New York). This is great for traders that can trade all day long or in parts. You can choose the times that are convenient for your trading, day-night, when you eat or when you sleep, whenever you want.
In Forex trading you can minimize the risk by depositing a small amount that will control a larger contract value. This is controlled by leverage and can make you profitable in the Forex market. If a broker gives 50 to 1 leverage it means that with $50 deposit you can buy or sell with $2500. If you put $500, you can trade with $25,000. All this needs to be done with great risk management because high leverage can easily lead to great loss, as well as great profit.
The Forex market is huge and therefore also very liquid. This means that on every buys or sell that you make, there will be someone who will take the other side of the trade. You will never be grounded because there’s no one on the other side.
To get started you would think that you need a lot of money. The reality is that online Forex brokers have “mini” and “micro” options and some of them have a minimum of only $25. This is great for Forex beginners because it makes the trading starting point easier. I’m not saying that you need to start with the minimum, but being cautious is never bad and starting small is good for the average trader.

Forex the best trading market :

Foundation knowledge to invest in stock market in India

Hello everyone, I thought many of us are willing to invest in stocks or the stock market in India but are unaware where and how to begin. I am posting about the basic details:

Basically, we have exchanges which provide us a platform to deal in stocks. Definition of exchange: Open, organized marketplace where buyers and sellers negotiate prices.
There are a total of 21 stock exchanges in India, with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) being the largest. For commodities we have MCX and NCDEX
Well, the first step, talking in India you need a demat account. Now what is that:
An account that holds all the shares that you purchase in electronic or dematerialized form. Basically, a demat account is to your shares what a bank account is to your money. Like the bank account, a demat account holds the certificates of your financial instruments like shares, bonds, government securities, mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs).
Now with that definition, let me elaborate you need a demat account only if you are willing to deal in Shares that too taking the delivery or holding the shares for T+1 day. If you want to invest in other than stock market you need a demat. BUT if you are planning only intraday or day trading; you don’t need a demat account. YOU NEED ONLY TRADING ACCOUNT.
How to open a demat account?
Choose a broker on parameters: brokerage charges, annual charges and leverage provided. Fill up a form; submit documents like PAN CARD, CANCEL CHEQUE, ID PROOF, and INCOME PROOF (BANK STATEMENT OR ITR) AND INVESTMENT OR MARGIN CHEQUE.
WHAT IS MARGIN AND LEVERAGE?
Margin is your investment amount that you are investing and leverage is the limit you get on it. Let’s say you have 10,000/- to invest that is your margin and leverage is limit that broker provides for trading. Like if he gives you 4 times limit that means you can make a trade where you will need a margin of 40,000/-
Why? Because broker make commission on turnover more turnover you make in buy and sell more profit he makes.
You have types of orders at trading platform or the terminal:
CNC (Cash n Carry): For delivery based equity trades. To buy stocks for CNC or for delivery 100% money required. To sell stocks as CNC, stocks need to be available in holdings.
MIS (Margin intraday square off): For intraday trades Trade using MIS for additional leverage/margin. All MIS positions auto-squared off 10 to 15 minutes before close of markets or when losses exceed 50% of margin (Auto-square off rule can vary based on market conditions).
NRML (Normal F&O trades): For intraday/overnight F&O trades without additional leverage. Exchange stipulated margins, positions taken as NRML can be held until expiry, provided required margins maintained.
Types of Orders:
You can trade in equity. In equity you have:
  1. Cash Trading or Cash Market: In this buying or selling of securities is done by providing the capital needed to fund the transaction without relying on the use of margin. Cash trading is achieved using a cash account, which is a type of brokerage account that requires the investor to pay for securities within two days from when the purchase is made.
  2. Derivative: It is the financial market for derivatives, financial instruments like futures contracts or options, which are derived from shares or cash segment only.

Dear all, Some time ago I came across an interview of an investor from Mumbai whose rise has been meteoric. I’m not certain if I’m allowed to mention details of the investor. Hence, let’s address the veteran investor as Mr.S.
His success story is inspiring but the obstacles he faced are moving. Despite those impediments he never gave up. He vanquished those roadblocks and emerged victorious. The success story is an outcome of a concoction of grit, determination, dedication, integrity. The interview was conducted by Mr. Puneet Khurana from Stoic Investing. I’ve made notes of the 120 minutes interview. If I err my apologies.
The Beginning: At the outset of the interview Mr. S declared that he didn’t complete his graduation course . He abandoned the Bachelor’s of Science course. However, he had a keen interest in economics and statistics.
Iron and steel broking was his family business. Post college he joined the family wholesale brokerage business. His responsibility as a broker involved visiting the train yard and selecting defective steel units, pieces that could fetch a decent amount in the market and acting as a liaison between the buyer and the seller.
However, the yard was later shifted to a location far away from his home. The increased distance prevented him from visiting the yard and selecting good quality steel samples.
Per him success in the brokerage business is dependent on honesty, integrity. Ever since he left college he had developed an affinity for equity Investing.
He was an avid reader. He would collect new issue forms. New issue forms are today called Red Herring Prospectuses. He would preserve all the forms.
It was difficult for him to manage his passion for equity and the iron and steel brokerage business simultaneously. It dawned on him that there wasn’t enough money to be made in the metal brokerage business. It helped him earn enough money to survive. But, not enough to thrive.
It was either equity or metal broking. Finally, he took the difficult decision of moving to equity full time. He was enamoured by the tremendous growth stories of ACC, HUL, etc. This happened more than 3 decades back.
The Struggle in Equity Markets: The veteran investor, today, has no qualms in accepting how difficult the first 20 years in equity were for him.
His decision to switch to investing full time was looked down open. The stock market was considered a speculators’ den. Disparaging remarks were often passed for the market. But, Mr. S didn’t give up. He firmly believed that the market is always right.
His dream, his mission in life was to find multi baggers. Per him, stocks that are in the limelight, that are well discovered can seldom become megabaggers. He is a staunch believer in the contribution of luck to a person’s success.
Between 30 years ago and today, his wealth has multiplied manifold. His quality of work has remained the same. But, what changed was his luck. In the expert investor’s opinion, there are various factors that determine a person’s success. The important one being luck, good fortune.
But, most importantly, ALWAYS TRY HARD. ALWAYS GIVE IT YOUR BEST. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN FATE FAVOURS US. Finally, fate smiled at him in the early 2000s. Not because of the dotcom boom. But, before I get to the life defining success he achieved I’d like to share the difficulties he faced on the path to victory.
His 10 year old son wanted a bicycle. On enquiry it emerged that the cycle costed Rs. 1600. It may seem like a small amount today but in those days he didn’t possess it. He resolved he would gift his son a cycle.
Expenses on all non essentials were reduced and finally, after 18 months of toil, enough money had been saved to acquire a bicycle. Survival was a struggle. In the meanwhile he worked at the garment business of an acquaintance. The job didn’t pay much but it was warranted to supplement earnings. Finally, after a year, he left the job because the equity bug wouldn’t leave him.
Despite the laborious life he never abandoned his desire to learn, to acquire knowledge. He had been a big collector of annual reports. He wanted to buy financial magazines. But, they were expensive. Hence, he would work hard to secure a magazine that was reasonably priced. He believed that newspapers and magazines are the cheapest yet the most reliable sources of information.
One day, almost 2 decades ago, he was reading a financial magazine. He was impressed by the organised retailing industry.
Captivated by the retailing sector, in 2000, he invested in shares of Pantaloons for Rs 12 apiece. The major competitor in organised retail was Shopper’s Stop. Shopper’s Stop was attracting millions in PE money. Hence, he theorised that Pantaloons would succeed as retailing would migrate from the unorganised to the organised sector.
After repeated attempts he was able to get a meeting with Mr. Kishor Biyani whose vision was organised retail in India. I must reiterate that Mr. S still hadn’t achieved extraordinary success. But, he was trying.
Pantaloons’ first store was at Crossroad 1. One day, Mr S convinced his wife to visit a Pantaloons store to experience modern retail. His wife, however, wasn’t willing to visit the store since they didn’t possess the wherewithal to shop at such stores.
They had just enough money to commute via public transport to and from the store. However, he convinced her to visit the store and just have a look at the new face of Indian retail. He was trying the Peter Lynch investing philosophy.
His wife was mighty impressed by the extensive range of clothes, outfits offered. Also, the experience of shopping in an air conditioned enclosure was remarkable. He was convinced this form of retail would do well. It was only a question of when.
His patience paid off. From his investment in the year 2000 for Rs 12, the stock appreciated to Rs. 2500 in 3-4 years. A return of almost 20000% in 4 years. Truly incredible.
His next investment was in a company called SSI. He invested a significant portion of his portfolio in SSI. He still wasn’t financially secure. But, was patient, calm. He had decent unrealised gains.
But, past success in investing emboldened him to try his hand at trading. His gains in SSI were eroded by trading in a now famous fertiliser company. He sold his entire holdings in SSI at X and the stock appreciated to 35X.
He was subsidising his loss of speculation by booking his profits in tech companies. Not a very good strategy, in hindsight. And, he continued to speculate because there was a desperation to make big money. He still hadn’t made big money and he was exhausting his savings for day to day expenses.
In this tumultuous period he never gave up learning. He worshipped newspapers and annual reports.
In 2000, when everyone was focused on IT stocks he focused his concentration on a stock called Elecon Engineering. His investment was based on the capex cycle over the next few years. But, since hardly anyone was paying attention to stocks other than IT he got a wonderful entry price of Rs 27.
Along with Elecon he invested in Dynamatic Technologies at Rs. 27. He was able to detect the trend before anyone else. When market trend aligns with our strategy massive wealth is created.
And, he attributes it to luck if such a favourable alignment occurs. He was way ahead of the trend. His patience was tested. But, fruits of patience were sweet.
In 4-5 years he sold his holding in Elecon at Rs.4000.
One master tip- He never looks at his cost of acquisition. It leads to anchoring to the cost price. He looks at the current price and assesses the situation. If investment thesis is valid he holds. Else exits the stock.
He chose to be a contrarian and invested in leaders in the struggling sector. When the sectoral outlook improved gains were massive.
Criteria for investment : 1)Which are the emerging sectors?
2)Which sector can have positive trend in the market?
3)Most important is the price of entry and patience.
4)Good entry price gives margin of safety.
5)Look at shareholding pattern.
6)If mutual funds, FIIs have holdings,the stock is dissected enough, it is unlikely to be a megabagger.
7)Never place target on selling price.
8)Always set review prices.
9)If review target is achieved, review stock fundamentals. If thesis is still valid hold. Else, sell.
8)Annual Report is the Holy book.
9)All persons have strengths and weaknesses.
10)Find your strengths and focus on it. Refine it.
11)Always be a student. Keep learning. The day you stop learning the downfall commences.
12)Knowledge is supreme.
13)More than what to do, what not to do is more important.
14)Be an eternal optimist.
15)Don’t give up. Have faith.
16)Finally, stay invested in equities and trust the growth story of India.
And, the investor finally did make it big. He did very well for himself and achieved his dream of being an extraordinary success by starting from scratch.
It’s a true success story. The aforementioned investor, now in his late 50s, may not garner media attention. But, it’s a story that’s inspiring, motivating and reassuring that every person possesses the ability to succeed.
If I’ve erred in any part my genuine apologies. Many thanks

A brief guide to Mercer and his possible agendas. Will be updated frequently.

Update: July 8, 2017 Google Mercerinfo, it will bring you back here. You can use this subreddit as a way to educate family and friends. Please upvote or down vote posts and comment when you can to guide new readers coming in. Thanks!
This Subreddit was designed to inform people about Robert Mercer, his colleague, Stephen Bannon and how they used propaganda to influence the American Election. Brexit was engineered by the same team. Calexit was also a target, which failed, but expect a second try. Kenya, Australia and India are current targets. France was targeted, but the effort failed. The world is being re-engineered.
If you are new to Robert Mercer, don't read my post first. It will likely be a bit much.
Start with:
1) Reading/listening to the NPR program about Mercer.
2) The reclusive hedge-fund tycoon behind the Trump Presidency
3) The Rise of the Weaponized AI Propaganda Machine the inside story on Cambridge Analytica.
4) Bloomberg did a comprehensive, in depth report What kind of man spends millions to elect Ted Cruz
UPDATED July 8, 2017
If you don’t know who Robert Mercer is, you won’t understand what is happening in both US politics and in many parts of the world. Mercer goals are currently being carried out via his daughter, Rebekah Mercer and Bannon, his primary agent in the White House.
Mercer’s possible agendas include:
  1. Dismantling the government
  2. Changing the Constitution via a Constitutional Convention
  3. Accessing our personal information via ISP regulatory change (Mercer's hedge fund company uses consumer information to great advantage on the stock market, to the tune of 70% profit per year. There is a striking similarity between Renaissance Technology market efforts and Cambridge Analytica.) The news has been manipulated for many years on the stock market.
  4. Changing tax law (Mercer's hedge fund company owes 6 billion to the IRS)
  5. Supporting the agenda of the Council for National Policy (CNP), a previously secret group of alt-right Christian extremists. CNP are anti-gay, anti-Muslim and want public schools Christianized. Members of the CNP include Bannon, Betsy Devos, Kelly Ann Conway and the Mercers. VP Pence recently declared that he had joined the group on Twitter. They are recognized as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC.) Recently, SPLC has come under attack, by a flurry of alt-right news stories that seem to be a specific, organized attack. Of note, Rebekah Mercer sits on an anti-Muslim Think Tank.
  6. Destroying Climate Science (Interestingly, Exxon has devoted huge amounts of money to the same end.)
  7. Removing any safety net provided by Government programs (This is the Prosperity Gospel; if you are rich, you are the anointed of God.) Mercer believes people are valued, based on how much money they earn. The disabled are worth negative numbers.
  8. Manipulating the marginalized to embrace far-right principles, via fake news and hate groups, to create chaos and promote violence. This is a diversionary tactic from the actual power shift away from voters and to the 1%. Alt-right bots do more than just support Trump’s twitter account. They are prevalent on all social media sites, including Reddit and Facebook. If you are supporting alt-right beliefs, you are being used. Your opinions were formed by fake news.
  9. There is an advent of more draconian laws in Red states. It is unclear if this is part of Mercer’s agenda. Private prisons are funded by the individual states. A prisoner is worth up to 60,000$ per year to the private prison system. This is a shell game to turn the marginalized into cash cows, funded by tax payers.
Trump's link to private prisons proves why Citizens United must go.

Here is what members of Congress were paid, to give up your ISP privacy
Updated April 11, 2017. It’s no longer brief...
Robert Mercer is the man that no one knows about. Robert Mercer is the multimillionaire who propelled Donald Trump into victory. 1 In part, this was through the use of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) propaganda machine Cambridge Analytica (CA). 2 3 Although many sources report that Mercer owns Cambridge Analytica, it is currently unverified. He has contributed millions to the company.
Mercer introduced Stephen Bannon to Trump, at a time when Trump's campaign was floundering, in June of 2016, and Mercer changed the course of history. 5 The concerted efforts of Mercer's donations, Bannon's involvement via the power of the alt-right media outlet Breitbart 6 and Cambridge Analytica, with help from Russian interference in the American election, all helped to propel Trump to victory. Infowars, an alt-right media outlet, as well as Russia Today, contributed to the disinformation. 7
Mercer is an eccentric genius. His hedge-fund company, Renaissance Technologies, secretly guards their computer algorithms interpreting the stock market, for the past two decades. The company is one of the most successful hedge funds in the world. 8 Mercer makes about 132 million per year. Renaissance Technologies consistently earns a 70% return on investment yearly.
Many of Mercer's eccentricities have been captured by the investigative reporting of Jane Mayer. Mayer’s book: Dark Money. The hidden history of the billionaires behind the rise of the radical right, has been called one of the 10 best books of 2016, by the New York Times Book Review.
Mercer prefers to spend time alone with his computer and his cat. He does not enjoy talking to others. When accepting a lifetime achievement award, from the Association of Computational Language, in 2014, Mercer stated that he was unsure what to say in his acceptance speech, "That I would have to make an oration on some topic or another for an hour, which, by the way, is typically more then I talk in a month." 9 In meetings, he will be typically be silent and softly whistle to himself.
Mercer immerses himself in computer programming and AI is his current love. So why involve himself in politics? Currently, he is one of the biggest political donors in American history. 10 He has many unusual ideas, and his interest in politics is to change public policy. He is an avid supporter of a scientist named Arthur Robinson 11 and Mercer spent a great deal of money trying to get Robinson elected (for Oregon's 4th congressional district), on two occasions, with no success.
In 1999, Robinson published scientific data, that there was no clear evidence that CO2 was having harmful effects on the environment. 12 Mercer and Robinson both share the same love of climate science denial. Mercer has given at least 22 million dollars to organizations promoting climate science denial. 13 While Senator Ted Cruz was backed by Mercer, he made climate science debunking a major part of his campaign. 14.
Robinson alludes to longevity research, although the research is kept secret and is not peer-reviewed. To this end, Robinson has collected 14,000 samples of human urine, stored in refridgerators, with a generous donation of 1.4 million from Mercer. 15
Robinson was the president and director of the Linus Pauling Institute. He claimed that he, and not Linus Pauling, had done the experimental work, "Linus has not personally contributed significant research work on vitamin C and human health." Pauling is renowned for having received a Nobel Prize for chemistry and another for peace 16 Robinson had been asked to leave the Institute by Pauling and subsequently sued in retaliation. 17
Bannon and Mercer share some similar ideas. Bannon and Mercer both believe that government should be downsized to the size of a pinhead. 18 Mercer was apparently influenced significantly by Ayn Rand, as are many of the GOP.
Of note: Mercer believes that people are valued based on your net financial worth. If you are on social assistance, your value falls in the negative numbers. Using this measure, most of the world's greatest scientists and artists, have little value.
Mercer was sued by his house staff, after he would penalize them for small things such as leaving doors open, by deducting from their bonuses, in spite of the fact they worked long hours and he never paid overtime. 19
Mercer is the major shareholder in Breitbart, which Bannon took over, after the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart, the founder. 20 Breitbart is currently being investigated by the FBI for possibly colluding with Russia to manipulate Trump's campaign. 21 Breitbart is an extreme alt-right publication, with distinctive racist views.
Mercer believes that that the Civil Rights Act of 1964, was a mistake and feels that African-Americans were better off economically before the movement. He has also said that there are no white racists in America currently, only black racists. He has however worked to get more Blacks involved in the Republican Party, through donations to a super PAC "Black Americans for a Better Future." 22
David Magerman, a Renaissance partner and research scientist, became quite outspoken about Mercer's views, as he was concerned about Mercer's drive to reduce government. "His views show contempt for the social safety net that he doesn’t need, but many Americans do.” 23 He was subsequently temporarily suspended from his work. 24 Magerman is now suing for wrongful termination. 24a
in 2016, Trump and Mercer, through AI analytics, could pick out who the "soft targets" were on voting issues. Cambridge Analytica has collected 5,000 data points on 200 million voters. 25 People, who were deemed to be easily influenced, were targeted to receive news to put Hillary Clinton in a dark light and to promote Trump, i.e. via Facebook. Single issue voters; those concerned about gun control or fearful of losing jobs or found to have a racist bent, were targeted and their fears played on.
The combined power of Cambridge Analytica (which psychologically analyzed people and could identify where they were by state) and the Russian Troll farm 22 26 27 actively reached out to those people, in key electoral states, and helped sway those American voters who were felt to be undecided. The manipulation included artificial Facebook accounts, which would share normal pictures and stories, as well as persuasive media stories.
Using those dossiers, or psychographic profiles as Analytica calls them, Cambridge Analytica not only identifies which voters are most likely to swing for their causes or candidates; they use that information to predict and then change their future behavior. 28
News information would suddenly appear on new news media outlets that had no merit, but was intently designed to fuel disinformation.
5000 data points per person. Stop and think about how much effort it would take you to produce 5,000 data points on yourself.
Trump’s Project Alamo database was also fed vast quantities of external data, including voter registration records, gun ownership records, credit card purchase histories, and internet account identities. The Trump campaign purchased this data from certified Facebook marketing partners Experian PLC, Datalogix, Epsilon, and Acxiom Corporation. (Read here for instructions on how to remove your information from the databases of these consumer data brokers.) Another critical supplier of data for the Trump campaign and Project Alamo was Cambridge Analytica, LLC, a data-science firm known for its psychological profiles of voters. As described by BusinessWeek, “Cambridge Analytica’s statistical models isolated likely supporters whom Parscale bombarded with ads on Facebook, while the campaign bought up e-mail lists from the likes of Gingrich and Tea Party groups to prospect for others.” Statistical models from Cambridge Analytica also dictated Trump’s travel itinerary. 29
Mercer hates the Clintons. He believes they are murderers. He spent 1.7 million to help publish an anti-Hillary Clinton book. 30 Although, it remains unclear if Mercer truly believes this, or was simply furthering his agenda of putting a "Mr Smith" in government, and saw Hillary Clinton as a threat that needed to be discredited. Given the fake news that was propagated on both Facebook and Twitter, as well as the alt-right news groups, it is most likely that Mercer does not hold these beliefs.
How did Russian trolls know who to target? Could there be a connection to Cambridge Analytica, which harvests the information that the Russians would have needed, to guide their agenda?
There is recent information suggesting that Alfa bank may have been corresponding with both the Trump campaign and Betsy's Devos's husband's company Spectrum Health, via a server in the Trump Tower. 31 32. Erik Prince, Devos's brother, may have been a back-channel between Russia and Trump. 32 One computer analyst believes that the repeated communications between the servers, could have been the repeated transfers of a database of personal voter information. 32a If this was true, it would confirm collusion between the Russians and the Trump transition team to corrupt the election.
Cambridge Analytica has a British parent company, SCL. 33 SCL has been reported to have ties to Alfa bank, although those ties seem several steps removed and involve Vincent Tchenguiz, owner of SCL and his apparent connections with Kaupthing, a collapsed Icelandic Bank of which Meidur (now Exista) owned 25%. Exista has ties to Alfa bank, as reported by Ann Marlowe. 34) 34b Alfa is a Russian bank, currently under FBI investigation for potential ties to the Trump campaign team. 35
Mercer may have ties to Alfa Bank via another connection; Renaissance Technologies have invested in two Russian telecom companies, whose stocks were in rapid decline: Vimpelcom and Mobile Telesystems. Alfa Group owns a nearly controlling share of VimpelCom. 36 Vimpelcom has since become Veon on the American stock exchange.
A close look at Veon stock patterns, suggest heavy "dark pool trading" at times. This involves trading done in multiple small batches, so that the stock price does not vary significantly. Often the dark pool trading pattern, will trigger algorithms used by the automated hedge fund computers, which will purchase a stock, based on the increase in trade volume. Dark pool trading has been questioned, as it allows anonymous insider trading.
Are there any more possible connections with Russia? Mercer’s yacht was seen together with Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev’s yacht, who is reportedly a Trump financial backer. 37 You can track Mercer's yacht location. 38. I cover the connections between Russia and Mercer [here](Edit: This is covered in more detail here
Mercer was involved in Brexit, via his ally Nigel Farage and the uses of Cambridge Analytica. Mercer apparently offered Cambridge Analytica's assistance for free. 39 Farage was involved in Calexit, which failed when the leader, ran away to Russia. Calexit is important, if your goal would be a Convention of States.
Mercer and Robinson believe that we can survive a nuclear war by building bomb shelters. He feels that the Japanese actually benefitted by being bombed and he believes small amounts of radiation are good for us. Bannon actually wants world war III. 40
Mercer’s endeavours are now causing a huge divide in the US, polarizing the right and the left. Victims of his propaganda machine are defending Trump, Russia and racism. In fact, many extreme racists are being fuelled to commit violence, in the light of the seeming permission being given by the current government. Donald Trump removed White Supremacists from the Terror watch list, within twelve days of his presidency. Trump is aggressively targeting Muslims and creating an us-vs-them mentality. By playing on people's fears and desires, Trump won his campaign via single-issue voters, who were desperately seeking validation of their beliefs. And the validation they received has now created a government representing the agendas of 1,000 people and not the country itself.
America is a country of incredible, precious diversity. The American Constitution is one of the most powerful documents designed by man. A Convention of States is being promoted aggressively, by both Mercer and the Kochs to rewrite the Constitution.
Embrace your country. Embrace your diversity. America has never stopped being great. And don't let anyone convince you otherwise.
What government policies might be directly influenced by Mercer?
1) The deconstruction of government.
2) The new ISP regulation bill being rejected is likely Mercer’s agenda. He needs information garnered from companies like Comcast and ISPs to fuel Cambridge Analytica to make his company better able to iprofile people and subsequently target them to influence them in a particular direction. Republicans were bought to ensure that the ISP and Broadband limitation law did not come to fruition. 41
Companies like Comcast, which are broadband and hence not covered by the Cable Act, are selling all your information. This information could include phone calls, IMs, medical history, financial information.
Although your "personally identifiable information" is protected, Data brokers are already collecting information about you using re-identification algorithms that can link your personal browsing history to who you are. And this is currently legal. If the ISP's information is hacked, they are under no obligation to notify you. There is nothing to prevent Data Brokers from selling this information to AI propaganda machines like Cambridge Analytica or the FBI.
Here is the case that Comcast won which shows that broadband is not protected under the Cable Act. 42 Protect yourself by opting out of allowing your ISP to collect information. Protect yourself by getting a reliable, paid VPN service for your phone and your computer. Understand that ultimately, there is nothing preventing a VPN company from selling your personal information, except their reputation. But it is better then nothing.
3) Mercer is also a climate change denier. He believes that CO2 is good for the environment. He has been a political backer for Arthur Robinson who is a scientist that has published against climate change. Many news articles are now indicating that climate science research is now disappearing off the internet. 43 This is a travesty of extraordinary proportions. Much of that data will never be recreated.
Rebekah Mercer, Mercer's daughter, was part of the Trump transition team. Rebekah has been pushing to have Arthur Robinson to be the National Science Advisor. Recently, she convinced Bannon not to resign. 44
4) Protection of Mercer's Renaissance company- 6 Billion in taxes avoided. 45 46 Mercer funded an anti-Defazio SuperPac in 2010 and 2012. Congressman Peter Defazio proposed taxing every single stock trade. Renaissance Technologies execute 26 million trades per year. Defazio proposed taxing 3 cents on every 100 dollar trade.
Maybe, at the end of the day, it's all just about the money.
