maybe people should use a camera for pictures and a phone for phone calls?
Hi, Johnragin,
below are some links referencing "purple haze," including Apple's response, some saying it's a problem, some not. Of course, problem or not perception counts.

Thanks, Budd, glad you enjoyed it....I did, too.

You're very welcome! I got a lot out of it, too.

google search has dozens of entries reporting the viewership of the 2011 Super Bowl.
certainly the entire world cup series would have more viewers versus the discussion here regarding one television show

Albertarocks, thanks for the well thought out comments, explanation and amplification of this material.
Best for a wonderful Holiday and New Year to you all.
Spain Guy is correct.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
My apologies for the error.
None. I don't like the 3X ETFs because of their daily reset and consequent tracking error. These are suitable if you're a short term/day trader.
I do, too
Thanks, Snake Driver, I will send your message along to him. I was an Air Force pilot and shared the same experience you had.. Best, John
Thanks so much for your good wishes. God Bless America.
Best wishes, JOhn
Thanks for writing. I know you're very proud of your son and thank him for his service during these difficult times. I agree with your assessment of the markets. Best, John
Thanks for your consideration and thoughtful comments. I agree with your outlook and opinion. All the best,
John
Good commentary, as always, Matthew.

thanks, Bill,
good analysis
I, too, see little connection between fundamentals and market action. And I agree on the point of the death crosses. I see this period as a short ray of sunshine in the "eye of the storm."
Going up on bad news is always a "good" sign.
In my opinion, I don't care if it's high frequency trading or sun spots that's making the market go up. The fact is that internals continue to strengthen in spite of the gloom. As you know, the news is always worst at the bottom.
However, I am certainly not a bull by any means. There is more very rough water ahead. This market will require nimble and competent abilities for success and those who posses those have the opportunity to profit mightily.
Hieryonomous,
All of 2009 was on low volume. The retail investor has left the building, maybe for good. Everybody needs to get used to more volatility and whipsaws ahead,

Definitely touch and go through here. Everyone's watching for the 200 Day Moving Average to be broken and held. If that happens, I suspece we'll see something of a buying stampede. FedEx on Wednesday will be big
Thanks for the comments and compliment.
Regarding Ultras, I would refer you to David Fry's recent excellent article regarding these vehicles. I have read many of the negative articles, as well, and certainly there are strong opinions on both sides of this issue.

Let's say that in a $100,000 trading account you usually risk 1% of equity, or $1,000 per trade. In a standard ETF with a 10% stop loss, you would invest $10,000 for a risk of $1,000.
In a leveraged ETF you could invest $5,000, use a 20% stop loss to account for the 2x movement compared to the underlying index and achieve the same 1% portfolio risk, thus effectively achieving a 1x portfolio risk with a leveraged ETF.
By cutting your position size in half, you can get 1x portfolio exposure risk to these markets.

Dave,
All the best to you and your family through this trying time.
Money doesn't matter next to health and I know that Francie will find her way back to a healthy future.
All the best,
John
Thanks very much, Proximo,
