    This is a long shot, but does anybody have experience or knowledge of this company in New Zealand? My best googling skills are not good enough it seems.

    That too yes.

    But what about the 2.3% interest, per day!

    FFS!!!!!

    2.3% interest per day is IMPOSSIBLE.

    Unless you run a PONZI scheme.

    Aha, another Ponzi scheme.

    I had an enquiry from a friend in NZ about Mirror Trading International yesterday, a lot of people in NZ investing in it too, claiming 1.6% growth per day/ month whatever...US$200 buy in.

    The way I see it as well.

    But then there is this one fool I know of that has not parted with his money for 9 months now.

    Early "investors" in Ponzi schemes make money, take out their original punt and do not mind when it collapses.

    I suppose it depends on your integrity whether money made in this manner lets you sleep at night.

    I don't believe it has anything to do with integrity. If you get in and out early doors and make some money, good for you. Risk vs reward. If you get in late and get burned, that's the way the cookie crumbles. There have been plenty of examples to show people how risky certain investments are, so you should know better.

    Part of the risk you take.

    I wouldn't tho, I prefer tried and tested institutions for my hard-earned money.

    That is until the liquidator comes knocking for repayment of your ill-gotten gains.

    Definitely has to do with integrity if you convince other "investors" to join the scheme.

    Simply no words

    EDIT: Actually I have thought of some words... this is akin to selling a broken or dangerous gun to someone that you know is going to lead to heartache in the future. But hell it's ok you made your money and really it's the other guys fault for being so gullible..............Seriously

    I always have one question for these pundits

    Explain what is driving the market i.e. what is driving the demand for the underlying instrument. Because only demand can drive up unit price. There is no earnings behind the share, so how are we making a profit?

    I have heard many stories, all centered around crypto being the next world currency. That may be so, but until someone can explain to me what is driving the demand (other than sentiment), I have my doubts over these vehicles.

    Have I taken a gamble? Absolutely! And yes, I am making about 1.5% PER WEEK in unit "currency". Have yet to divest though. Let's wait and see

    I agree with you IF you "sell" in onwards i.e. convince other people to invest. However, if I am willing to take the risk with my own money then surely I am holding the loaded gun and not passing it on.
