Reports that China has approved new steel projects, a move that could boost steel prices, sends Peabody Energy (BTU +4.1%) to the top of the S&P leader board; BTU sells coal for making steel to Asia markets. Shares of fellow coal miners also surge: ANR +3.1%, PCX +4.6%, ACI +1.8%, CLD +1.7%.

    Ouch! Bad news for Obama and Nanny Bloomberg's $50m to the Sierra Club. Well, maybe the EPA can step in quickly and regulate any shipments in or out of the U.S. since "coal plants KILL people!" You've got to hand it to Nanny B, though. With "KILLER COKE" and "KILLER COAL" and the oceans rising across the sidewalks of NYC, he seems to regulate so effortlessly.

    I am retired living in central florida and my other "gambling" hobby is horse racing . I consider my forte being some-what in the mathematical area. I have BTU and VNR as my top picks and accumulated on a percentage basis on the downtrend
