Withdrawn funds from present broker.

Tempted to pay some taxes and keep money out reach for the moment. Bill’s intro to charts makes me aware of much learning to happen.

If I do move money straight over, think it will be IB Mark. Cost structure (1$ for 100 shares) sounds too good to pass over.

6am. sh/&, gotta go to work!

>WSJ has reported a story with interesting repercussions, if true. What do you think? Cyber-attacks are increasingly regular news in Europe. Am thinking of upgrading basic AVG antivirus to pro level for increased security as the amount of money our household moves on the net increases annually (and web pages become increasingly dangerous) Many crime syndicates created by end of Cold War. Chechan fighters = brutal killers (recent assassination on streets of Vienna). Russian mafia = involved all aspects of commerce. As witnessed by recent IE worm, still too many people inadequately protected. Easier to fleece people or attack them… Read more »

Morning Swiss, did you pick a broker? Not sure if your question about $ for ETF’s was answered, but at Chuck they are priced the same as any trade. USD 8.98. Did you pick up ABB or PWR?

dberryclan – Of course if oil prices increase as they should and will eventually, then DXO/UCO/USO will turn up. Stimulus package passing will help, but maybe not soon enough to push DXO much past $4. If you’re holding DXO in the green and want an oil ETF, maybe USO is better for longer term holding because of the big 2x/ultra volatility decay. If oil suddenly doubled for instance (highly unlikely IMO), then DXO could be only $10.76.

DXO/USO are too hot for me to handle for more than a day!!!

felt like a bear trap.

*the House approves the stim pack but it was led by dems. 100% republicans voted nay. that fight (Senate) is next week.

*Although the dow ended up 200 pts, s&p was strong, not much was up besides financials

*as our host mentioned, metals were weak

*overall volume was low

regardless I hope mkts do well tomorrow for all of us.

I’m very common by the measure you just stated. Honest opinion about myself. Sitting tight is tough. I have been right three or four times this past year 08 and did not sit tight and watched sizeable profits pass me by…. while I flittered around like a fly which cannot sit still. Currently, still see this old man, “hard to learn a new trick.”

Doing nothing is really tough. Ask someone in a monistary and they will say it is difficult to get used too.

Latest Candlestick looks slightly better, but I’m not convinced yet…

Hey Mack. I think the governments have a “Hail Mary” play in mind to cleanup after the flood of fiat money they have unleashed. It’s why many of us are expecting inflation eventually, since there is so little faith in government to actually be competant. Good trading to you, it’s my bed time.

By the way, I would actually buy physical gold and silver, but I trade out of my Vanguard IRA and the Vanguard says they can’t hold bullion. My idea was to buy a PM contract and have it delivered to Vanguard’s offices.

I sold 75% of everything today on strength. I am close enough to even to get out.

Going to sleep good tonight with my cash under my pillow.

The one thing I agree with, Johnny:

“I don’t know if the fed and other governments can vacuum up all the fiat money once the deflation comes to an end”

What IS their exit strategy?

A fine article. I was aware of the issue but not the continued festering. Thank you Bob 47.

Mack,
I beg to differ. PMs held up very well during the brutal 2008 trading year, while the stocks got clobbered as usual. I don’t know if the fed and other governments can vacuum up all the fiat money once the deflation comes to an end, but I don’t see PM’s going out of style in any event. I think they are a rock and eventually the miners will be back in fashion just like the PMs they deliver to the market.
