Use of Cookies
I recently got this notice from Google: "European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.

As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities.

Of course I view this as a bunch of EuroCrap nanny state bullshit which is simply designed to criminalize anyone who doesn't bow down to their stupid fucking rules and proclamations, the bunch of dickless Napoleon dictator wannabes that these rule makers are (I know its not the normal working people who are doing this so present company is excepted from my rant!).  But in a bid to avoid needless legal difficulties with authorities who are losing power and who are desperate to control others and extract fees from people for minor infractions of their stupid codes, I will comply with the requirement.  So here goes.
  1. I don't allow ads on my blog like most people do but perhaps Google is putting cookies on your computer as part of the basic operation of their blogger platform.  I don't know how any of this works and so if you are concerned about cookies then please assume that Google is evil as Hell and is infesting your computer with billions of them in a way that will eventually make your computer actually catch on fire and then blow up.  In other words, assume the worst.  For all I know it really is that bad.  Now, if I were to assume the worst given the information you have just received, I would never venture onto this site again because, oh those evil cookies will burn your computer up some day for sure!  But if you want to assume full risk for that then you are welcome to visit here as often as you like.
  2. By coming to this web site you implicitly agree to all terms and conditions including but not limited to your computer actually catching fire and blowing up because of Google's use of cookies.  I'm sorry that I don't have time to have every person who visits economati blogspot or economatisubs blogspot fill out a waiver each time they visit and so this implicit acceptance of the terms and conditions will have to do.  At some point I expect to be hauled into some filthy French or Belgian nanny state court room to explain why I am such a criminal for not making every person sign a cookie waiver and I want it on the record that these nanny state assholes better not do that or I will indeed taunt them mercilessly to their faces.
  3. I'm sorry that all my regular readers had to be exposed to this vitriolic attack on government bureaucrat assholes but I feel it is my civic duty as a world citizen to push back on this kind of shit.

The opinions expressed in this Site do not constitute investment advice and independent advice should be sought where appropriate. The information provided on this site or in any communication containing a link to this site is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject the person known on Economati Blogspot (i.e. the Site) as "The Captain" or Economati Blogspot itself to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Neither the information, nor any opinion contained in this site constitutes a solicitation or offer to buy or sell any securities, futures, options or other financial instruments or provide any investment advice or service.

Disclaimer of Warranty and Limitation of Liability
Due to the possibility of human and mechanical error, inter alia, this website and all information and material contained in it is provided "as is" and "as available" and The Captain or Economati Blogspot do not and will not provide any warranties and representations regarding such information and regarding the website.  All information and opinions expressed herein are current as of publication and are subject to change without notice.

The Captain or Economati Blogspot cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy, validity, timeliness or completeness of any information or data made available to you for any particular purpose. Neither The Captain or Economati Blogspot will be liable or have any responsibility of any kind for any loss or damage that you incur in the event of any failure or interruption of this site, or resulting from the act or omission of any other party involved in making this site or the data contained therein available to you, or from any other cause relating to your access to, inability to access, or use of the site or these materials, whether or not the circumstances giving rise to such cause may have been within the control of The Captain or Economati Blogspot or of any vendor providing software or services support. In no event will The Captain or Economati Blogspot be liable to you for any direct, special, indirect, consequential, incidental damages or any other damages of any kind even if The Captain or Economati Blogspot have been advised of the possibility thereof.

Use of Terms and Phrases
At times and for the purpose of readability and brevity, The Captain or Economati Blogspot might phrase commentary about a chart wave form in terms of "if this happens do that" or in similar ways.  This should never be taken to be investing advice because there are no registered investment advisers associated with Economati Blogspot.  This language should always be taken to mean that someone doing chart prediction analysis for the purposes of trading would reasonably behave like that. It is a description of what an Elliottician would do, not specific instructions for an any reader of the blog or to readers of emails associated with the blog.

The Dangers Of Paper Assets, Trading and the Use of Common Sense
The Captain and Economati Blogspot often track and comment on the chart patterns of highly volatile stocks or ETFs or similar paperized financial instruments. The Captain and Economati Blogspot consider ALL paper based assets including stocks, ETFs, ETNs and other trade-able paper based assets to be inherently worthless, much like common baseball trading cards.  Because the paper based assets have no inherent value and only the value they might currently have is that which is temporarily placed on them by traders, all of them can someday actually become worthless or nearly so.  Because of this philosophy, any mention of common valuation metrics by The Captain or Economati Blogspot should thus be considered financial entertainment in the same way the the entire Economati Blogspot and related communications are solely for the purpose of financial entertainment.

Local laws and regulations
This Site is not directed at any person in any jurisdiction where for any reason the publication or availability of this Site is prohibited. Those in respect of whom such prohibitions apply must not access this Site. The Captain and Economati Blogspot do not represent that any of the materials at this Site are appropriate for use or permitted by local laws in all jurisdictions. Those who access this Site do so at their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws or regulations; legal advice should be sought in cases of doubt.

Plain Talk
The proprietor(s) of this website believe that lawyers are mostly evil and that legalese is sophistry.  The above legalize is there simply because of the establishment. Maybe you read it, maybe you didn't.  Maybe you understood it, maybe you didn't.

To avoid any confusion, please don't assume that what you read here or in any form of communication associated with Economati Blogspot is investment advice or that anyone affiliated with the Site or related electronic communications is a licensed investment adviser.  We don't want to advise you and legally we have no permission to do so!  We simply want to show you pretty colored charts and talk about the shape of the waves.  We do not claim to have knowledge of the future regarding stock chart movement.  Nobody can predict the future with any guarantee of accuracy.  If the chart models appear scarily accurate at times then look to Ralph N. Elliott who invented the Elliott wave system; we are just implementing his system albeit it with the experience of decades.  The views and commentary on this blog are not about investing at all but rather on gambling odds associated with herd movements as measured by Elliott Wave analysis of chart patterns. We'll leave the giving of investment advice to people who bought the license that enables them to legally do so.
