  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! Chapter 82....... [View instapost]
    Reposted from the previous chapter at User7 request.

    "Ebola can indeed be airborne in the strictest sense, in that if someone coughs directly as you inhale, you can become exposed. Can it spread to an entire village that way? No. It is highly contagious while it is alive outside the body, but much like HIV, it can live for only a limited period of time. Essentially, once it is outside liquid water, it dies quickly. Quickly that is as compared to like Hep B, which can live on a counter top for weeks if not assaulted by a detergent, bleach, or other effective bactericidal agent. I use the term "bactericidal" kind of loosely there as they are viruses, not bacteria, but something like 5% bleach will kill the virus. Other viruses enter a "Spore" state where they are much harder to kill, but so far there is no evidence that Ebola can.

    Research continues though as to how it can be completely out of the Human Chain (by all evidence) and yet appear months or years later in the same region. The entire Vector chain is still unclear. "

    Darn it OW,


    "Research continues though as to how it can be completely out of the Human Chain (by all evidence) and yet appear months or years later in the same region. The entire Vector chain is still unclear."


    Now answers to this would be something that I think would put IT and other's minds at ease. But there is no such info. Instead, on the way home from work, I was treated to a "special radio" show as to how ebola is transmitted / don't worry blah blah blah. Which will freak out people more as everybody on the show was "it's all good, everything's fine" while evading questions like how it got into the country.


    They were basically saying that since everyone gets a temperature taken that leaves such&such country so it's a good protocol. Nevermind the incubation period before someone would show signs of infection. (I'm not digging on the local press minimizing this, but agree that it's not as bad as a nasty flu outbreak)


    If you haven't yet, please pass your posts along to IT's next chapter. "

    I agree, but if you look, we moved to Chapter 4 almost a month ago. You should maybe post there. Those are a good strategy as long as you don't hold the 3x shorts too long. The 3x Longs will be great once the correction stops. I used them a LOT in the first 2 Q's.

    The next question to be looking at is "What event will stop the bleeding?"
    There is no question that we are in correction, now we have to look for a catalyst to make us want to begin investing again.

    Too bad I cannot touch my portfolio without blowing the test, but I am going to take a Bath until we hit a bottom.
    In my RLP, I am 65% cash and plan on being 80% by Friday close.

    There really is no point in worrying , as if you get it, you are pretty much dead, and if not, no need to worry!!!

    In reality, this guy presents a unique test of it's ability to spread through a population when the patient is asymptomatic, as either 20+ people will get it, or no one.

    Coins, They gave us Plague Shots in VN every 6 months, but why so often if the immunization was effective, and why bother if not?
    I'll have to research y-Pistes (sp?).
    Pneumonia has so many different causative agents that it is again worthless to inoculate. Consider that Legionaire's Disease is a form of pneumonia, as well as many bacterial agents and even fungus. My lungs are full of nodules caused by a fungus common to chicken farms because I lived within a mile of 1 for 8 years.

    I see a fairly unstable market next week, but no big crash. Probably just like this week.

    Jinxed myself as well, lost everything today that I gained yesterday. I'm not worried though. As long as my stocks stay within the predicted worst case drawdown, and my sell target, I'm comfortable that they will recover before the 63 Market Days pass.
    Futures are up for Friday, so we should be ok.

    I just looked at SDRL's Chart and I don't even see a "Dead Cat Bounce". it's not a falling knife, it's a failing building!

    I'll look at the SEC filings as soon as I can, and do a little research; but it looks pretty nasty at a glance.

    That is exactly the reason that I switched to the methodology I am currently using. I finally have some solid, emotion free, Sell Targets.
    Making money has not been very hard since 2009, keeping it is. It just seemed like I was always selling just before the breakout, or right after a stock had lost 30% or more of the profits that I had once had.

    Anyway, that is why I do what I do. I always was at a loss as to when to sell.

  • Apple: Had Enough Reasoning / Guessing Why The Stock Must Go Up - Or Down? [View article]
    Tmigtkptmilmd
    The solution I have found is that along with the Intelligence Lists that Peter sells, you get quite a number of BTFs and other tools that can be used on ANY stock, not just the ones on the Intelligence List. I wind up using perhaps 30-40% of the BTFs on stocks in the Int Lists maximum, allowing me to follow a few stocks that I have other interests in. Some are stocks that have made me money in the past, and I like to check in on them on occasion. Others are like AAPL, Stocks that a LOT of people own, or at least want to, and by keeping tabs on them, I don't rely on an article with 1-2 day old Data. I have it right on my screen about 1 hour after the Markets Close.

  • Keurig Green Mountain Market Response Today Vs. MM Forecasts [View article]
    @pasquale
    I actually bought my current (1 cup size) French Press at the Starbucks across the street from the Denver VA in 95. I still like it better than my espresso machine to be honest. I can heat the water in a microwave in 1 minute, and inside 2 mins have great coffee.
    I know a lot of people have made a lot of money on Keurig, but I never bought any of the stock as I viewed it as a passing Fad. Maybe it actually will have a good holiday season, but I can't help but feel like I'm late to the Party, and the real party started the day this article was written.
