Hi, Dave Tromp here. I love sharing my trading and investing research on this site. Just like I believe in financial independence as a way to personal growth in freedom, I also believe in openness and transparency. In that light I would like you to read and understand two disclaimers.

Trading and investing disclaimer

All information on this site and my social media channels (Youtube, Twitter, etc.) is for educational purposes only. None of the information I provide is an advise to buy or sell a security. Always do your own homework when it comes to investing or trading. And now more official:
This website and related social media channels are neither a solicitation nor an offer to Buy/Sell securities. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed on this website. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results. The financial information, news and research that you may receive from this site is for general advice only, not personal advice. Do not base an investment decision solely on the information provided. You should seek your own investment advice from a financial planner who will consider your personal objectives and circumstances. Trading Forex, Crypto currencies, CFDs, Binary Options or any other financial instrument is risky. You could lose all of your money.

Affiliate disclaimer

I sometimes link to or refer to products or services for which I may or may not earn an affiliate commission. I will try and indicate whenever possible if a link or referral is an affiliate link or referral. However, this is not always possible or I might forget. So to be save, just expect every link of referral to products or services to be affiliate links or referrals. I will never link to or refer to products or services of which I do not believe they offer a lot of value to you. Also note, that buying a product or service through my links does not cost you anything extra and you can always contact me if you would like me to give you anymore information about the product or service.

It is my intention to share my knowledge and provide you with information of value. If you have any questions for me concerning these disclaimers you can always contact me by using the contact form on the contact page.

Thanks for visiting my site.
I really appreciate it!

How to install Google Drive Sync on Ubuntu 16.04 and higher

Google drive is one of the many handy tools Google offers. It is a file synchronization tool that allows you to backup, store and share and access files in the cloud. I use it to collaborate on files with others or to sync movies that I can then easily publish on Youtube.

Unfortunately there is no native Google drive software for Linux Desktops. Luckily there is a way to have a proper sync setup on Ubuntu 16.04 and higher that uses the Google drive API and some Gui tools. Let me show you how I have this installed on my Ubuntu Desktop.

First I install the Grive2 commandline tool:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grive

No need to set it up right now. Instead let's first install grive-tools. This is a package that is only available up to Ununtu Vivid, but I have found that is works just the same on Ubuntu 16.04
Run the following from a terminal:

sudo su -c "nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/thefanclub*.list"
