    There is nothing worse than losing a child still in youth. My thoughts are with you and your friend at this time of loss.

    Aw gee, Maya- I was just getting used to having those (WRES) stock certificates around. I might feel guilty if they went to $6 and I wanted to sell my old friends. I might miss them-

    LOL!

    This is an interesting read from the Richmond fed dealing with a comparison between Greece and Germany economic situations and how they got there- where do they go from here.

    Conclusions are drawn so that even an economic Neander like me could get something out of it. Nice job by the Richmond fed's guy Robert Hetzel.

    Not a quick read but extremely thought provoking and I feel that it is probably accurate without hyperbole. It is done as a 'white paper'.

    Enjoy-

    "...consumption supply and demand..."

    Mark! That's heresy-
    Manipulation and flash trades is the name of the game here!

    LOL!

    There must be some way we can convince workers to die more rapidly-

    Hat tip to Mark on his posting of exit of euro vehicles in the last couple of weeks. I looked at what he posted and similarly vacated the hedged investments at least for the present.

    Euro was about $1.05 and now touching $1.14- quite a jump in a short period. Got out of the trades in one piece.

    (REED) with a big hop up today. I can't access news right now. Sounds like an analyst upgrade or Maya's good buddy Cramer 'Like'.

    LOL!

    >Maya-

    I'm thinking your take is on point.

    I struggle to find a business model that makes serious money for the company or has the potential to do so. I made a few bucks trading with it on the short side for two scalps but I just don't see it as a long term investment.

    Taking a look at (TWTR) but my crystal ball says stay clear for a while. Still a heavy downdraft in momo with any upside volume disappearing quickly.

    Hanging on with (MRO) even tho dn 3+% on 9.3Million shares- That's a lot!

    (MEMP), NE) and (STO) behaving today.

    Toe back in the water with (REED). Story looks good- Patience I guess is the rule of the day.

    Re(LUV)

    Ayup- Back in LUV again!

    Couldn't pass up a price of $40.60, down 3% for the day. Figure I will write CALLs again when we get a little pop in price (he says hopefully).

    >Mark-

    Thanks- Quite an essay by the G man.

    I can't by sure but I guess he likened the life of the current "Bull market" to the life of a 70 Y/O person.

    Sounds like the basis of a John Donne poem.

    >D-inv-

    Thanks for doing the survey- I will be out of the country for much of May with limited access to the 'net so I am just holding onto stodgy stuff with some some hedging as protection.

    If a goodly portion of the investing community feels that the adage is valid there will be a lowering in prices no matter what we think.

    Better be safe than sorry. Maybe even some long range index/ETF PUTs might be in order.

    Re: Diversification-

    Even with eoro dramatic jump greenback is still way high.

    Good time to re-enter AUD, NOK, CAD and NZD, IMHO
