  • Why Twitter's 38 Million Zombies Could Impact Ad Revenue [View article]
    I am not sure what you mean by:

    ' how does one support Facebook and not Twitter, or vice versa?'

  • Why Twitter's 38 Million Zombies Could Impact Ad Revenue [View article]
    I joined twitter a few years back, sent a few tweets - no more than half a dozen, got bored and never logged back on until... this week.

    About 6 weeks ago my inbox started to get spammed with loads of emails daily from twitter. I gnored them until today when enough was... simply too many.... and so I logged into twitter for the first time in a few years.

    It turns out that they have added a long list of email options to profiles and, naturally, everything was set for me to receive all sorts of emails from twitter daily and weekly.

    I quickly switched off all those emails. Logged out and have no intention of returning.

    However, twitter can now claim that I am an additiona MAU on the basis that I have logged in just this once in X years.

    This makes me very suspicious of the figures twitter has been claiming about its MAUs - I wonder just how many people are like myself and have had to sign into twitter in the past few weeks simply to stop all the SPAM emails from twitter?

  • GLD: Whipsaw Not Likely Over [View article]
    The record breaking Commercial short positions in gold and silver tells us that someone is putting a great deal of importance on keeping the gold and silver prices down.

    To go against them currently seems madness IMPO.

    I don't see any reason to be angsting or worrying daily about the price of the PMs as long as these RECORD short positions are maintained by the Commercials.

    From what I am seeing it is obvious - the US Fed intends to keep pumping the conventional markets in the run-up to QE ending in October.

    The Fed wants the conventional markets at record highs so that, when it finishes QE, it can claim an enormous economical victory and justification of QE. Obama will be able to claim a political/economic victory.

    To this end 'they' want the conventional stocks at record highs and gold and silver held down.

    Seems to me that the game now is to step away from gold and silver for 6 to 8 weeks and to keep an eye on any - if one EVER comes - buying the dip opportunity on the conventional markets.

    This is a political game ladies and gentlemen - nothing to do with squigly lines, waves, charts, etc. It is all about politics IMPO.

    Fascinating post TT. So you think the bottom was in about 5% lower and that a buy signal has now been triggered?

    Is it possible that we are seeing a top in all markets this week and early next - I mean, once the S&P 500 is through 2000.... then some kind of correction in the S&P, DOW and gold/silver?

    Have to admit that I was expecting the massive commercial shorts in COTs to have had an affect on the price by now.

    Thanks for answering QP.

    It sounds, as I have always believed, that DUST is too hot for me.

    Thanks QP.

    Out of interest when do you actually buy DUST? I know that may sound a stupid question but if it resets daily then when do you buy?

    I mean, if you believe gold is gong to fall in price when do you place an order - once the fall in the gold price has begun? But if you wait for that to happen surely by then DUST has already moved up?

    If you get into DUST too early surely the daily resets mean you lose money if gold does not fall? I know that previously you have said that the daily resets do not add to much over a few days but I get the impression that buying and selling with DUST requires great skill or a heck of a lot of luck?

    So, probably not a good day to go long DUST :-)

    Tuesday smackdown? Haven't had one of those for a while.

    FWIIW, I think we will see a smackdown in gold in the next 2 weeks and hen we will begin a rally until at least Sept.

    Caveat - I know nothing. Just my two cents.
