    The biggest gainers on the NYSE are mostly gold and silver miners with (BVN) up 12% at the lead.

    I would guess that if the intent of the Chinese is to back the yuan they will need a lot more now.

    Why would they need to back it if they also did not expect a drop?

    I think you have it SHB

    "possibly a hint of vinegar"

    Would that be to sweeten you up a bit?

    Re: auto-link

    Not only useful but downright essential as far as I'm concerned.

    I would like to see a post from someone that finds the auto-link capability to be distracting! Would have to be a VERY glib poster.

    The first thing I thought of is what that does for the Chinese gold accumulation.

    Second I wondered what about the cost of gold extraction vs the prices now and finally what about the hundreds of marginal producers- Are they all done at today's price?

    Third I wondered how other PMs would be affected. Silver, Platinum and Palladium for example.

    >Alex-

    The Rights of Way were established 60 years ago in my area. The then owners were compensated to some extent but I will receive no compensation for an additional line as long as it fits in the existing ROW. If the ROW needs to be expanded that MAY be a different story.

    No matter what, I am still on the hook for property taxes, ROW or not. I gave thought to a subdivision that would place the ROW as one parcel for tax purposes and just default. Let the county take the property.... Hmmm.

    I am permitted to use the land for farming or graze but no structures other than a simple fence and no trees/shrubs are allowed which could exceed 6' tall. If I don't cut the turf a contractor comes through every other year and brush-hogs down to three inches.

    In reading through the article the author drew some conclusions that were not stated, that plans were made in the chance that the whole program failed. It would be a total abdication of responsibility if such contingencies were not prepared for.

    The German Finance minister stated that Germany would do everything in its power to assure that the EU remained viable.

    That statement should have been the lead in to the article.

    Another media histrionic IMO.

    >Hoop-

    Good link. Especially this part not in the headline but reading between the lines-

    >>>>

    " The truth about the EU budget

    The revision to member state's budgetary contributions stems from a series of accounting changes over a metric known as Gross National Income (GNI). In this process, it was determined that the UK had been under-paying relative to its wealth as it was more prosperous than first calculated.
    Yet for all the indignation on the part of the Prime Minister about Britain's surcharge, over the course of the 11 years in question, the one-off payment still amounts to less than €200m a year - or around 0.01 per cent of the UK's annual GNI - as pointed out by the FT.

    In comparison to the continent's biggest economies, Britain's contribution to the EU's pot was still €5bn less than that paid in by France, and smaller than that of Germany and Italy."

    >Silibilly-

    Thanks-

    The graphic is indeed so- Says it all.

    I have 3 24" gas lines- The Big Inch crossing my property with a fourth in the works for mid 2015. They are the old El Paso now owned by Kinder Morgan (KMI). This is the Maine to Texas run. I believe one is LP, one is LNG and don't know the third's load nor what the fourth is destined to carry.

    I know the shale product has a finite lifetime but don't know what that is. I guess it's long enough to build more pipelines.

    Kinder Morgan does look to be the most attractive with Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) neck and neck with them. Probably a little early though to make a serious commitment.

    Food for thought-

    Looks like that a minimum lower oil will be the story for six months and probably a lot more. We all know that the drillers, refiners, service outfits, transporters, storage tank farms and geophysical organizations will suffer. Consumers- at least as a direct lowering of fuel costs at the pump and in the basement will gain.

    I've been attempting to grok the impact (net) on the electric utilities, the gas transmission outfits and others.

    ISTM that the gas transmission outfits by and large MAY feel some impact but the demand remains, possibly increasing with a population growth but until the Hydrogen energy cell becomes available at Walmart, people will still need the stuff at the same pace as now. Those that also do exploration, refining and drilling will feel pain. The pure play transporters should be sanguine.

    Utilities and of course airlines will initially benefit as well, as we have seen in the last few days. An overall economic hit will happen eventually but will utilities be affected negatively in the long run? Trucking outfits? Car manufacturers?

    I think everyone has commented on these subjects and I would gladly welcome thoughts on my thinking.
