“Perangkat penting itu bernama Tubuh dan Kesehatan Trader itu sendiri!”

Kebanyakan trader bisa menghabiskan waktu trading mereka hingga 12 jam / hari di depan monitor laptop atau komputer. Mata trader adalah bagian tubuh pertama yang merasakan gangguan, terlebih lagi dipicu oleh stress akibat loss, floating minus dan beberapa kesalahan trader saat trading.

Penyakit lain seperti sakit kepala, penglihatan buram, susah tidur, badan pegal, tubuh lemas, hingga kurang konsentrasi menjadi gejala yang akan berkelanjutan apabila hal tersebut terus diabaikan oleh trader. Padahal, konsentrasi sangat dibutuhkan sebelum mengambil keputusan trading.

Menjaga kesehatan secara extra sungguh diperlukan bagi trader, terlebih bagi mereka yang berpuasa di bulan Ramadan agar dapat beraktifitas normal. Baik berpuasa atau tidak, kesehatan itu baik adanya bagi kelancaran segala aktifitas trader sehari-hari.

China’s gains in retail sales, consumer prices and industrial production challenged the government’s assessment that the recovery isn’t “solid,” and escalated pressure on policy makers to let the yuan rise.

Inflation accelerated to an annual 3.1 percent pace in May, surpassing officials’ target for the full year, retail sales gains quickened to 18.7 percent and industrial production jumped 16.5 percent, government reports showed today in Beijing. The central bank said in a June 8 statement China still doesn’t have a “solid” recovery in domestic demand.

The indicators build the case for a stronger currency to help alleviate price pressures and quiet criticism that Premier Wen Jiabao’s government has a mercantilist policy that’s hurting the global recovery. American lawmakers said they’ll go ahead with legislation targeting the yuan peg just as U.S. and Chinese leaders prepare to meet at a Group of 20 summit this month.

“China’s recovery is clearly on track and overheating risks are still building as inflation accelerated and money and investment growth remains strong,” said Kevin Lai, a Hong Kong- based economist at Daiwa Capital Markets. “The government should move on the currency as soon as possible before pressure from the U.S. intensifies again.”

Asian stocks gained for a second day on optimism that the region’s rebound, led by China, is proving resilient so far to the European debt crisis that the World Bank said this week may cause “double-dip” recessions in some countries. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index rose 1.2 percent as of 1:04 p.m. Hong Kong time.

Yuan Bets

Bets on the yuan to strengthen against the dollar increased today after U.S. officials stepped up calls for China to end the peg of 6.83 that was adopted in July 2008 to shield exporters from the global recession. The yuan’s 12-month non-deliverable forwards rose 0.3 percent to 6.7625 per dollar as of 11:54 a.m. in Hong Kong, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The increase in consumer prices was the biggest in 19 months, while a separate report on producer costs showed the largest jump in 20 months, at 7.1 percent. The M2 gauge of money supply rose 21 percent in May from a year before after a 21.5 percent gain in April, the central bank reported.

Lending growth exceeded economists’ estimates, separate figures showed. Banks extended 639.4 billion yuan ($94 billion) of new loans in May, compared with the median forecast of 600 billion in a Bloomberg News survey of economists.

Rising Rates

Money-market rates rose after the figures. The yield on the one-year onshore interest-rate swap, a fixed-cost paid to receive a floating one, climbed three basis points to 2.3 percent.

Meantime, China failed to draw enough bids at a sale of treasury bills for a third time this year amid speculation banks sought higher returns to protect against inflation. The finance ministry issued 11.45 billion yuan of the 15 billion yuan of 91- day securities on offer at an average yield of 1.9062 percent, according to traders at BOC International Holdings and Agricultural Bank of China, who asked not to be identified.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said at a congressional hearing yesterday that a more flexible yuan would allow China to pursue “a more effective, independent monetary policy, which is particularly important now, with China’s economy facing a risk of inflation in goods and in asset prices.”

Property Prices

Data yesterday showed property prices rose at a near-record pace, with costs jumping 12.4 percent across 70 cities from a year earlier. Government efforts to crack down on speculation have had an impact on sales, which tumbled 25 percent in May from the previous month.

This week’s economic data suggest that China’s growth rate peaked in the first quarter, settling in at 9 percent or more in coming quarters, some economists said.

China’s economy will probably expand at “slightly over” a 10 percent annual pace this quarter after the 11.9 percent surge in the first quarter, Barclays Capital estimates. The pace will slow to 9 percent in the final three months of the year, Peng Wensheng, head of China research for Barclays in Hong Kong, wrote in a note today.

Industrial production growth eased from a 17.8 percent year-on-year rate in April. Urban fixed-asset investment rose 25.9 percent on that basis in the first five months of the year, compared with 26.1 percent in January-April.

The World Bank, in an economic outlook published June 9, forecast 9.5 percent GDP growth for the year, compared with 3.3 percent for the U.S. and 0.7 percent for the euro region.

Band Widening

Barclays forecasts China will raise deposit rates from the third quarter and borrowing costs from the fourth to help contain inflation, and anticipates a widening in the yuan trading band. “The exact timing is difficult to forecast and goes beyond economics,” Peng wrote in the note, referring to the political oversight of the yuan decision.

China’s export gains have spurred the ire of U.S. lawmakers, who pushed Geithner at a Senate Finance Committee hearing yesterday to apply greater pressure to his counterparts. Shipments abroad climbed 48.5 percent in May, helping yield a $19.5 billion trade surplus for the month.

U.S. government figures show America with a $71 billion trade deficit with China for the first four months of the year, up 5.7 percent from the same period of 2009.

“There is now a long trail of broken promises that can no longer be ignored,” Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, told Geithner. Lawmakers led by Senators Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, and Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, are pushing legislation that would let companies seek import duties to compensate for an undervalued currency.

Global ‘Distortions’

The Treasury chief noted in the hearing that China did let the yuan rise 21 percent against the dollar in 2005-08. Geithner said in his testimony that “the distortions caused by China’s exchange rate spread far beyond China’s borders and are an impediment to the global rebalancing we need.”

China probably has until the end of the month to strengthen its currency before Congress acts, Rebecca Patterson, the head of foreign exchange at the private banking unit of JPMorgan Chase & Co., said yesterday in a Bloomberg Radio interview on Surveillance with Tom Keene.

Acting within that time frame would address the peg before President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with Hu Jintao, his Chinese counterpart, and other members of the G-20 nations. Indian and Brazilian officials have joined the U.S. in recent months in urging a shift in yuan policy.

“The frustrations with China’s trade practices are growing by the moment,” Graham, the senator, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend.

"Cyberbullying" dan Kepribadian Ganda Kita

Sebuah wacana untuk direnungkan

"Stop tweeting about Ariel Peterporn, uncool ok. Please ……
Seruan itu mulai tampil di situs microblogging Twitter pada Rabu (9/6) malam. Salah satunya dari akun twitter yang menamakan diri Raffi Ahmad. Pendapat ini masih minor, tetapi setidaknya ada counter balik apa yang terjadi di Twitter.
Ya, kita semua tahu kan kalau perkara Ariel Peterporn sudah mendunia lewat topic paling popular atau trending topic di Twitter. Nomor satu pula, tak hanya beberapa jam, tetapi dua hari secara fluktuatif menempati nomor atas.
Memalukan dan makin membuktikan kalau kita suka mempermalukan orang lain untuk urusan seperti ini. Konon penyanyi Justin Beiber sampai berkomentar. Sosialita dunia seperti Paris Hilton dan penyanyi Pop Lady Gaga dikabarkan ikut penasaran.
Kabar burung lain, Steve Job, CEO Apple, juga bertanya-tanya soal trensding topic yang mampu mengusur iPhone4 ini. Tetapi berita-berita itu belum bias dipastikan benar dari mereka. Tak menutup kemungkinan hanya tweet palsu.
Jelas, trending topic ini merugikan Indonesia. Tambah satu lagi citra buruk kita sebagai pengonsumsi pornografi paling top, selain sebagai gudang pencoleng kartu kredit dan penipu di dunia perdagangan internet.
Cyberbullying adalah saat internet, telepon seluler, dan perangkat digital lain digunakan mengirim teks, gambar atau video dengan tujuan menyakiti atau memalukan orang lain atau merusak kredibilitas orang lain.
Setiap orang punya hak privat dan setiap orang punya aib yang tak layak diumbar untuk public. Ketika hak itu dilanggar, ketika kita menganggap pelanggaran tersebut biasa saja, inilah problem serius.

Merayakan Pornografi

terlalu berat cobaan yang menimpa generasi kita ini. Orang-orang masih menganggap, cyber adalah dunia maya yang terpisah dengan dunia nyata.
Kita seperti punya kepribadian ganda. Karakter kita di dunia nyata sering beda dengan kita di Twitter ataua Facebook atau di blog. Di dunia nyata, kita taat rambu-rambu social dan etika. Merokok pun tidak, nyolek cewek pun tak berani. Di dunia maya, kita aktif terlibat penyebaran materi porno atau cyberbullying. Hal yang memberatkan, ikut menggugah materi yang menyakiti pihak lain ke berbagai situs. Jika bias diumpamakan, didunia nyata kita seperti ramai-ramai dan bersorak-sorai mengarak pasangan bugil ke alun-alun. Lalu mempromosikan acara itu kepada orang-orang yang kita kenal, termasuk adik-adik kita yang masih kecil.
Itulah gambarannya ketika kita ikut-ikutan merayakan materi pornografi di internet. Bayangkan, adik-adik kita juga memantau dan melihat arak-arakan pornografi itu. Seorang murid sekolah dasar di Twitter berkomentar" Ariel Peterporn dan Ariel Peterpan itu sama enggah sih". Hmm, kedengarannya bego banget ya, tetapi ini tragis banget kan ?
Tragisnya bukan karena si adik ini beum menyadari soal apa yang sedang dibicarakan, tetapi karena kita tak membayangkan sebelumnya ternyata mereka yang memantau Twitter termasuk anak-anak yang baru tumbuh.
Pastinya, alangkah shock orangtua si anak itu jika tahu si anak melanjutkan pencariaanya di Google. –hal seperti ini sebenarnya tak kita inginkan, tetapi riil sudah terjadi.,
Apakah kita masih mau mengakui kalau kita ini bangsa santun ? apakah masih percaya kita punya etika? Masih bisakah kepala kita tegak, masihkah jari kita lincah mengetikkan pekik pembelaan terhadap identitas budaya kita, seperti yang biasa kita lakukan ketika perang komentar dengan netter Malaysia?
Ah, rasanya semakin nyata. Kita tak punya strategi kebudayaan apa pun menghadapi dunia global. Kita masih perang dengan diri sendiri. Puaskan, ketika kita mampumenabrak nilai-nilai yang ada, merasa bangga ketika kita mampu menjebol rekening karu kredit milik orang lain?
Ya, senang ketika berhasil ngecrack privasi orang lain dan sukses mempermalukannnya, entah privasi didunia maya dengan membobol akun facebook atau privasi di dunia nyata seperti menyebarkan materi porno koleksi pribadi. Sebatas itukah kita?
