Re: blog: buy low sell high

1st rule of investing : NEVER EVER trust a financial advisor. (they're only interested in selling their garbage so called "AAA product"). 2nd : NEVER take tips from anyone about a equity, if the person has insider knowledge it might pan out, buts that's illegal. 3rd : Never trust a company's Prospec...

@ Brig Since when is the WHO a credible organisation ?, they have flip flopped and been caught out in so many lies it beggars belief, first it wasn't a pandemic, then it was, and the list of their contradictions is endless, they aren't called the "Wuhan Health Organisation" for nothing.

Re: friendly file dates column name ?

Nikos. would it be possible to make the new date function independent of regional settings ?. I noticed that if the systems short date format is set to mm/dd then X2's date system emulates that, what I'm thinking of is keeping my OS system date format as mm/dd, and in X2 display it as mm/dd/yy. Or a...

double clicking the settings file will work but ONLY if your xplorer2 isn't running
