  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! PORTFOLIO #15.......  [View instapost]
    OK, I'll take a look at those links, and get back a bit later in the week. I've used Excel and other spreadsheets for years, but never had to link them to real-time Data. I'd like to learn though as it would be helpful on my Watch-Lists.
    I'm going to be busy for a day or 2 on another project. As soon as I get my plate cleared, I'll message you JB.

    I'm not familiar with "Google" Spreadsheets yet. I would need to learn how to do the links and such. I know how to enter formulas and data into the Cells, but to do everything, I'll need some training.

    Skype would be a good way to train me if you are willing. I learn much better by voice teaching rather than reading due to the way my brain reacted to getting blown up several times in VN. Maybe we could set up a Skype session, perhaps later in the week or next week. In the meantime, do you have a link to something I can try to read to learn a little?
    Once I get the basics down, I'm sure most of it is rather repetitive cut/paste link setups.

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! Chapter 60.....  [View instapost]
    All I need is a few good days to get back out of the Red. JAZZ was up near $5 today early on, but couldn't hold on. I have been violating my investing discipline by setting Stops. It's really hard to break old habits and change my whole outlook. Now with my RLP, I'm doing far better at sticking with my discipline. I don't know why I get so defensive with paper trades, but make money trusting the Buy and Sell signals in this approach in RL.
    If you want to see the approach I am working on, I have it shown on my Blog.
    One of the most important parts of this discipline is to only sell at Price Target, or 3 months-something that is completely counter to setting Stops. Breaking this discipline just destroys the strategy. I'll be back up there well into the Black I believe unless the whole Market goes titsup.

    Whenever you get time, would you set/change my Sell Targets as
    (RYL) 46.41 (SNDK) 84.35 (QCOR) 86.74 (ETE) 53.39 (CBI) 92.8

    On another note. I have plenty of time to manage the new Challenge if you stay on this site after the Reset. I'm Retired, and can't travel much anyway and even on the road, I could do this from a motel (or any place I can get a Cell Signal) anyway. I even have Office on my Win Phone.
    I don't know what arrangements you are thinking of, but I could handle this spreadsheet easily enough.
    Let me know whatever you decide.

  • Most-Watched Stocks & ETFs On SA, Compared Via Market-Maker Risk And Reward Forecasts [View article]
    @PR
    I prepared an updated Risk/Reward tool for the 35 lesser knowns updated to 4/11, and posted it on my Blog at http://seekingalpha.co...
    The numbers change every time you generate a new one; but it's still useful with a little effort to match up the stocks.

    You can derive the Range Index pretty closely by following the change.
    Any movement lower or to the right indicates a lower RI. Conversely, (MIDU) has moved to the top of the page.

    I was meaning Abandon Ship if we see money flowing out to both bonds and Gold for several more days.
    It's still early in the evening on the overseas indexes, but they are still down. We'll know more in a few hours. Things look to be stabilizing and the USD is up.


    I am having a terrible time uploading a JPEG into my Blog tonight. Anyone have any tips?

    Index futures are down overseas tonight right now, but gold is up to $1327 right now. Another day or 2 of gold higher and stocks lower might be signs of capitulation. Zacks says go 100% Long in some article I ran across, so that is my Sell Signal.

  • The Right Time To Consider Insurance Company Stocks [View instapost]
    I thoroughly agree on the rise in NG approaching. As such, I will research the companies you mentioned, as well as others impacted heavily by rising NG prices with an eye to shorting victims, and going long some producers. I'll have to look up the name, but there is a Norwegian firm that recently reported a possible breakthrough in recovering frozen Methane from sub-sea beds. I'll ask my friend in Sweden to get the name and get back to you.
    (I am notoriously slow about getting certain things done, so please be patient with me)

    It's certainly not over John. We had similar problems here in NM where ranchers were overgrazing public lands. The solution here was to outlaw cattle coming within 20 feet of any natural spring or river, and fencing them off. There are few animals that damage sensitive "Semi-Arid" land as much as cattle except sheep.
    The affected ranchers here had even stronger claims to the federalized land, based upon Mexican Land Grants; but they lost eventually, much as this guy will. The real issue is that he could have taken the money originally offered years ago and bought land in the midwest that can support grazing. Out here it can take more than 150 acres per head to support grazing, where in Iowa it's rated heads/acre, not acres/head.
    You have to love these "Home-Grown Militias who claim rights that not only do not exist, but that not one in the Militia has actually served his country in a real conflict. They have never seen combat and think it's all exciting to carry an assault weapon and play war in the countryside, when they have never seen the mud and the blood and the tears. They have never smelled human blood, nor watched the life fade from the face of someone the love or have killed up close. They have not earned the right to claim "Ancestral Land" if they have never served to earn their rights. I can tell they have never served because those who have will go to any length to avoid facing hostile fire again except to save a life. NOT over a patch of desert land.
    As an aside, the first thing I told my wife after hearing about the Ft Hood shootings was that it would turn out to be senior NCO's that the guy had shot because they were doing something to show "power" over him. Sure enough it was 3 senior NCO's. They had given him only 1 leave day when his mother had died, and were hasseling him when he was trying to apply for a transfer. Probably the worst cause of low morale in Viet Nam was alcoholic senior NCOs bothering GI's just because they could. That is when the word "Fragging" came into our language. Most people think it was officers that go Fragged. It wasn't. It was Sr NCO's that never went into the Field, just hassled those GI's freshly back from 'the field".

    Great price on the Ribeye, my T-Bones were over $10/pound.

    I guess I can hit "Whiffle-balls" from the sand "bunker" on my side-yard. LOL
    I had to replace my lawn several years ago and Xeriscape to meet local water restrictions. (I live in High Desert)

    I want to buy my 100 (CBI) back at Open please. Since it sold at a profit, there would be no "Wash Sale adjustment" in "Real World Trading". I want to drop all the "Stops" as well please.
    I'll find something else to replace my ADS with.

    @OAG
    Don't forget that they burn a lot of coal to generate the juice to charge your Tesla. Wool is OK since it doesn't bother the sheep to get haircuts, but in summer I guess I'll have to spin my own linen from Flax. LOL
