    Re: (MEMP)

    Well, if you liked MEMP at $15 you have to just plain adore it at $11.50- down another 5.5% today.

    (VLO) however up another 1.7% today at $67.46 and (TSO) still climbing at $100 up 1% today.

    >Freya-
    Relative positioning trends are part of my analytical arsenal. The ratios of S&P vs the price of commodities (primarily oil) on a historical basis and the S&P vs precious metals.

    Not the end-all by any means, just another piece of the puzzle.

    >MJ-
    I guess I'm like Mark anymore. I sometimes find myself up at three am and nodding in the chair at 19:00. Getting up at 03:30 to catch a 06:00 plane flight has become almost pretty routine these days. I can probably adapt to sleeping in four hour shifts as I once did.

    I will never willingly give up the QC and hope Trip keeps it going forever. I sure would miss all my friends here if there was no QC.

    "...my favorite island"

    I can understand why-

    We have been there 12 times since 1990- NO building bigger than a palm tree allowed and NO jet-skis either plus 40 miles of beaches.

    >Mark-

    Hawaii (Kauai actually) will be my full time home this Fall. I close on a house in the Kapaa district on Kauai on 1 September. Selling the house in New York sometime.

    Want to see what would have happened if you invested in the S&P with reinvested divs at a certain date and wondered what it would be worth this year? Wonder no more-
    A really neat calculator for the "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda" group. That plus a lot more.

    I will be in Hawaii in September- Six hours behind the East coast. If I continue trading stocks it will likely be on more offshore bourses. I get up at 03:00 to trade Oslo now but I have not been trading much at all the last several months.

    Been considering currency pairs- Dabbled a bit when I was sure the dollar/euro was a solid long and it paid off. The nice thing about that arena is that it is 24 hours.

    >Mark-

    Thanks-
    Nice strategy. The only problem is fear of falling asleep!

    I think it would be a good idea to keep finger on triggah all time with Chinee reaction time being what is is.

    Is that ETF on the Shanghai or Hong Kong exchange?

    Do you trade there?

    One of my dogs is in the second bout of Lyme Disease in less than a year. We have to do the proscribed stick it down the throat bit as he chews everything and no longer will be fooled by bologna, peanut butter, liverwurst or sections of hot dog.

    My vet comes to the house and I asked her about the fact that a body will always test positive once infected and she said it would wear down in time, meanwhile a more elaborate test must be given to someone or somedog(?sp) previously afflicted.

    Oh yeah she did say something else- They have recently determined that Lyme Disease can be transmitted by sexual contact.

    I couldn't bring myself to ask whether it was dog to dog human to human or...ahem... between animal and human.

    Re: (MEMP) PUT Sells-

    One of my technical Buy/Sell signals is a downdraft through the MACD 0.0 line followed by a modest increase then a downdraft to a higher low price than the previous low moving up to increasing increments of increase. MEMP is in the last described stage and is increasing slightly- Hence my PUT sales.

    So far so good-
