Why you wanna babysit me?
Uh oh O-oh
I'll tell you how the end begun/ they talking leverage 10:1/
Now you don't make a living for me/ how you make decisions for me?/
Weather stormy/ thunder to come/ used to leverage 200:1/
They praying for my self destruction/Dodd and Frank/I smell corruption/
It's disgusting/ Old scam/ Fraud?/ Dog, I'm a grown man/ with my own plan/
Don't babysit/ Proposal reeks of baby s**t/
I need some room to make me rich/ So 50:1 you make me quit/
You're hiding behind consumer protection/ Kick us out/ you move the direction/
Shift the markets/ get your pockets/ fat as hell and rich from profits/
How you gonna tell me how to invest?/
Obama, please get me outta this mess/
Now I'm stressed/ This one's for ages/ bill is 2,300 pages/
Makes me want to get a lawyer/ Cuz I've got a question for the….
Why you wanna babysit me?
Uh oh Uh oh
I see Big Brother is watching/ my every move like my mother/.
I'm going under fast/ Who controls it?/ makes me wonder/
Rules to consume the consumer/ I can't move/ I'm the loser/
Dodd and Frank/ abuse us/ changed the odds/ No more rumors/
Leverage is 50:1/ Even 20 on some/
Now my money is done/ 9-to-5s here I come/
It makes me want to cry out/They're trying to fry my account/
This world is crazy/Why they always push the little guys out?/
This bigger government/keep us poor/ they loving it/
Tell you more I love my pips/ Met-a-Trader?/ forward this/
Hate my job/ I'm bored with this/ I can go so long with this/
Take profits/get all the chips/ We've got a new song for this/
Why you wanna babysit me?
Uh oh Uh oh
R.S. & L~Reece
I don’t need a nanny. I don’t need a babysitter. Look carefully at my URL: www.ADULTcontemporaryhiphop.com. You’ve heard L~Reece and me vent our frustrations on CFTC (Babysit Me), and now here is Part 1 of the “Behind The Music” special.
Lil’ Jon sells wine. Dr. Dre sells head phones. E-40 sells wings. The incredible Tech N9ne sells out shows (have you seen that dude live?). Your man, R.S. sells and buys currencies through the Foreign Exchange Market (Forex).
Next month (on October 18th) new CFTC regulations will take effect that I fear will make it difficult for me to continue as a successful foreign exchange trader. The leverage reduction proposal, and the possibility that UK subsidiaries of US brokers will follow FXCM in shifting accounts back to the US, isn’t getting enough mainstream attention in my opinion.
After several months of studying and testing, L~Reece (@LReeceHipHop) and I have gotten pretty good at catching pips for profit. We understand that some people run scams and frauds. We understand that traders can lose significant amounts of money if they have not studied and are not disciplined. That being said, we are adults who are aware of the risks associated with trading (potential traders who are unfamiliar with the risks of trading should type the word “Forex” into any search engine). Who are these guys at the CFTC to hide behind consumer protection and limit my opportunities for “my own good?” It’s like I said in the song, “you don’t make a living for me, so how do you make decisions for me?”
These new regulations might guarantee that trading is unprofitable for traders that currently have “R.S. size balances,” while having little impact on how big dog traders, with “Jay-Z size balances,” move. Earlier proposals were worse than the current one; back in January, these guys were talking about 10-to-1 leverage! Why do these people have the power (and the nerve) to propose this nonsense?
Put aside the controversial changes that directly restrict leverage; we could be pushed out of trading if Dodd-Frank forces us to work exclusively with US brokers. At present, it is easier for the everyday US trader to grow and achieve profitability with a UK broker due to factors like less leverage restrictions and the availability of platforms including MT4.
I am tired of the rumors and the ambiguity. My friends and I are still trying to get clarity on whether it will be worth our time to continue trading after October 18th!
Whether you trade Forex, the bigger issues are autonomy and unnecessary restrictions on our opportunities to take risks for profit. We are naturally entitled to freedom, so it is a question of whether this government is going to protect that freedom or diminish it. If I take a risk for profit, I can live with the consequences of my decision: good or bad.
Say it again with me. CFTC, why do you want to babysit me?
We’re not done here.
