Your Questions About Paper Trading

Helen asks…

Why would individuals oppose taking action against the human trafficking trade?

I’m writing a research paper on the human trafficking trade. I can find ample information on the subject, but I need opposition to taking action against it. Why would individuals oppose taking action against the human trafficking trade?

John answers:

Think about it!

Possibilities include:

1. People are involved directly in the trade and don’t want to be found out. This includes everyone from the traders to people who enjoy the prostitutes or buy the slave labor.

2. People make money from the trade even though not directly involved, but still don’t want to lose the income (think banks, bribed officials, etc.)

3. People make money from the other things people in the trade do and don’t want to lose the income (so if the human traffickers also sell drugs, those making money from the drugs have something to lose too.)

4. People who don’t want resources diverted from their pet goal to others. (There are only so many resources available. If more are involved fighting human trafficking, fewer are working on illicit drugs, anti-terrorism operations, etc.)

5. Fear of reprisals from the traffickers and their agents.


Thomas asks…

Can anyone suggest to me where I can find some good stocks to trade?

I am thinking of doing some trading (perhaps swing trading) and I need someone to give me some stock quotes, maybe even small caps stocks that perform well under technical analysis to help me build a database fr my trading business. Please answer and thank you.

John answers:

News sources, including papers, and on line tools all do this for you. Just be aware that you usually have no better than a 20 minute delay in pricing, and the bigs are to the millisecond. You are disadvantaged in a data oriented strategy.

Maria asks…

Why exactly should the US lift the trade embargo against Cuba?

I’m in the process of a writing a seven page paper, and I’m looking for more material to throw in, so I’m also looking for more ideas. You don’t have to elaborate, just some basic reasons you think the embargo should be lifted. Thank you.

John answers:

Individuals trade, governments do not. Allowing American individuals to trade with Cuban individuals will raise the living standards of both the Americans and the Cubans who trade with each other. Cubans tasting the benefits of trade can only lead to good things vis a vis the totalitarian Castro regime, and if it doesn’t then Cubans have only themselves to blame. Legitimate governments exist only with the consent of the governed

Charles asks…

How does the issue of cap and trade relate to marketing?

Need a little school help here. I’m just looking for some more ideas to finish my paper.

John answers:

Emissions trading (also known as cap and trade) is an administrative approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants.

A central authority (usually a governmental body) sets a limit or cap on the amount of a pollutant that can be emitted. Companies or other groups are issued emission permits and are required to hold an equivalent number of allowances (or credits) which represent the right to emit a specific amount. The total amount of allowances and credits cannot exceed the cap, limiting total emissions to that level. Companies that need to increase their emission allowance must buy credits from those who pollute less. The transfer of allowances is referred to as a trade. In effect, the buyer is paying a charge for polluting, while the seller is being rewarded for having reduced emissions by more than was needed. Thus, in theory, those who can reduce emissions most cheaply will do so, achieving the pollution reduction at the lowest cost to society.[1]
There are active trading programs in several air pollutants. For greenhouse gases the largest is the European Union Emission Trading Scheme.[2] In the United States there is a national market to reduce acid rain and several regional markets in nitrogen oxides.[3] Markets for other pollutants tend to be smaller and more localized.
