You're right it's a little scary, as is everything these days:)
I have to start here however.
Loonie? Par shmarr? Rand? Shcmand!!!
It's all in the POG IMO for Droopy or any of the Canadians.
XAU, HUI, TSXGPM, POG they're all at a crossroads or from a TA perspective at an apex of what I read as bullish triangles. I've placed my bet (well about 80% of it) but if I'm wrong and it turns on me, hopefully I'll be nimble enough to turn on it at least long enough to recoup those losses I've cut. I have a little cushion at the moment but was too early in and went through a down and up with it in the past four weeks so who knows, maybe we get just more sideways. I'll get out of that after a little bit as there will be no liquidity unless we go up now and for a period of about three to four months keep right on going up. For now it is what will tomorrow bring with the U.S. markets closed.
SOB - haven't looked at a KKD chart for a long time, but I recall it still being over $40 when they put the price
up a buck a dozen. Should have been a clue and it looks like the Loblaws distribution didn't help. Still like the smell when I walk by and you don't get that even inside a Tim's anymore GGGG. The Harvey's across the street still smells pretty good outside but not as good as when it still used charcoal. Speaking of the old days, I'm sure you won't care but those my age will be a little saddened to learn of the death of Sandra Dee. Think I probably listened to some of her music cruising up to Harvey's in the early sixties. There also used to be lots of Drive In Movie theatres around here to see her movies. You would have liked her squire, she was a tease LOL.
M - Don't be shy making those calls, no gurus here. As a matter of fact send me a PM to hit me over the head when you give up on the PM's. It's about that time we'll know if oil has gone down according to plan and I'll need a tutor. Are these two in oscillating mid term patterns?
Looks like some resistance every 10 points, but I'm expecting it to break out right to 250+. You'll notice I bought that BGO on Jan 20th for the same price as you. If you draw a line in your graph from the bottom on Oct 13 to the one Jan 7th, it defines the bullish triangle, just wasn't expecting the next down. That line BTW if extended would line up with the lower highs near the end of 2003. Anyway, I'll sell it if it breaks 2.60. Gotta let em swing 10% unless they all start tanking. Hope this helps.
Celebrity poker is over so it's time for bed.
