    Re (CPST) I agree- No clear near term direction indicated. It IS sitting above the 50 SMA which to me is a plus. I think I will hold out and stretch for closer to 2.30.

    Bot earlier today- (PPH) $29.50
    And (IBB) $229.10.
    Added to (ECYT) just before it was up a dollar this am.

    A bit miffed that (OTCQB:ULUR) is down $.11 to $1.49 but it IS very thinly traded so an investor wanting out might take a hit.

    Also, China looking pretty good- Bot (PGJ) at $29.50

    Y'all just keep that Ohio cloud sweat in Ohio!

    I've still got half a foot of white rain on the ground and don't need any more!

    Because of the snow we haven't been able to get the Christmas lights down so we're going to keep them up and light up on the holidays over the Summer. Neighbours think I'm a little eccentric anyway-

    Re: (OTCQB:ULUR) - Saw a dip this afternoon, down to $1.56, off $.04 so figured I'd add to my position & threw out a line and got 2100 at $1.56, 912 @ $1.57 and I have a replacement order for 988 at $1.58 but that's been hanging for a half hour 1.58O/1.60B. Don't think I will reach further

    Talk about a thin market-

    Re:(CPST)- Thanks, HTL-

    I guess somebody snuck in after the report from CNN was posted.

    Good to know the price is holding the line, at least for now.

    Doc did some commenting on (OTCQB:ULUR) at the end of January. He and I had at least 6-7 posts on it back and forth as we were trying to buy at $.84 which we finally did. I sold my stuff March 21 at $1.73 for a double plus and bought back in with three lots in the last week in March average price of $1.50.

    Currently $1.60

    Not a bad place to enter but maybe not in this market environment.

    FWIW-

    To those waffling about being buyers or sellers.

    An old formula (tried and found worthy) for whether or not to buy or sell in a market is to check the SPX and its 200 day SMA (currently at 1845). If the index falls below the 200 SMA that is a sell signal. The 200 SMA is currently 1756.

    Conversely if the index is currently residing below the 200 SMA a rise above the 200 SMA is considered a buy signal.

    Most conventions suggest using week-end or even month-end data to make a decision.

    Just checked the price of (CPST). I'm unsure if this is just the 16:00 price or if AH is reflected (probably not) but the Bid/Ask is $2.09/$2.10.

    I can't get AH prices on Fidelity after 20:00.

    WT

    EDIT: Answered my own question. CNN reported the last at $2.09 AH with 28.4K shares traded.

    The BATF would probably send a SWAT team to check out what the sulphur was being used for.

    "OK. Maybe Andrew Jackson said it. "

    Wasn't it a banker that wanted to kill him once?

    Having been a homeowner (3 homes in forty-eight years) for ever since I could vote I would like nothing better than to sell the hungry beast and find a long term rental with what I want and need for the next 10 years or so. Leaving a house to heirs seems archaic to me at this point. The younger crowd is a lot more mobile and the last thing they would want is an "investment" that stands a good chance of losing value. My kids have used those very words and want no part of home ownership anymore.

    Dozens of people that I know in and around my age group once thought the golden tears would be spent in the three generation home before the move to the inevitable care facility or whatever. Now they are thinking like me and don't want to leave the burden of a house to a partner nor to their children either especially one that may take a long time to move if at all in a lousy market.

    The trend I see is a gradual (maybe not so gradual) move towards a more urban rather than suburban or even rural lifestyle. Commuting and pleasure driving is now often quantified by how much gas is the round trip to work or the sight seeing afternoon going to cost in $4 gas?

    I agree with Trip's thinking in that houses are more and more becoming investor properties rather than individually owned and I believe either through foreclosure or outright purchase as we saw taking place here a year ago.

    I think this thinking is the new living approach and it may indeed follow the more European models as Trip laid out.

    >HTL-

    The numbers I quoted were for Friday close. The 20 day period and 2 deviations. Then I went to the 20 and 1. I DID use a forty and fifty day rather than daily- That must be the difference. I thought the BB period was all that counted.

    I will give the Daily/Weekly a shot- Thanks.

    Q RE:BB

    Been trying to back into your BB numbers and I can't get a fit. If I use (20,1) I get the following:

    2.105, 2.174 and 2.238.

    If I go to the (20,2) I get this:

    2.038, 2.174 and 2.304.

    Not being a big follower of BB theory I must be applying something different?
