  4. In reply to: crowman28 on Monday 04/02/08 04:57pm Hi Crow, my interpretation is a short squeeze during the last hour of a down day but it seems to work in the opposite direction as well. Dan or EB can probably explain it better cheers aus

  6. In reply to: kacy on Wednesday 23/01/08 12:35pm I think Guppy is observing from the charts what the sheep herders and the sheep did after the last corrections, and predicting that they will probably do the same things this time. cheers aus
  7. Hi EB, trouble is what is cheap....we dont know anymore...... new values might apply now ! remember last year when we sweated for a week on our 8000 DAX shorts http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/lmaosmiley.gif Dan thanks for reminding us about GSL ... we tend to forget that in these freaky markets the normal stop loss can gap down big time at open... it can be horrific http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/thumbdown.gif cheers aus
  8. In reply to: nifty49 on Friday 23/11/07 01:15pm Yes the patient is definitely in a coma.............alas might never regain consciousness mmm…. do we turn off the life support now or wait, “while there is life there’s hopeâ€ÂÂÂÂÂ. Still can’t understand why the company was spending all that money fixing the damned dam and bribing the local community when they must have known that they were running out of finance?? cheers aus
  9. In reply to: henrietta on Wednesday 03/10/07 01:14pm If we agree that LAF is now a penny dreadful .......the it must be "cream of the crap" after restructure it will be a producer unhedged ,debt free, and record metal prices. having said that LAF owes me heaps....but I will hang in at these prices cheers aus
  10. In reply to: bam_bamm on Friday 21/09/07 03:39pm Yes good to see .......It would be good if LAF could rearrange its hedging that would really help the SP cheers aus

  13. In reply to: early birds on Friday 03/08/07 06:19pm Hi EB/ Crow........ considering the DOW has bounced back they way it has you would think it would need some really good news now to go much higher than 13500 do you think? the ppt has done its job the time being? I fancy a short at 13500 but dont want to hold over the weekend Im short the FTSE at 6298 cheers aus
  14. In reply to: early birds on Wednesday 01/08/07 06:03pm I did really well with a short on PGL but that is the only stock I shorted .....this blinded bull market has really sapped my confidence heaps of short targets but then I cant press the trigger !!! http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/grrr.gif cheers aus

  18. From Colin Twiggs "Long Term: The primary trend remains up, with support at 12800 and 12000. Short Term: The index is testing support at 13250. Strong volume indicates support, but behavior of the S&P 500 indicates that this is likely to be overrun. " cheers aus

  21. In reply to: Danville on Friday 13/07/07 10:52am If the DOW was due for a pull back last session, it must be due for one now! my problem is that after a session like the last one I lose the confidence to hit it hard when the opportunity presents http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/grrr.gif Dan, maybe you could turn the NFI into an indicator....if its over 80 we take the day off! http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/rolleyes.gif cheers aus
  22. I echo crows thoughts..........if the DAX did go back up to 8000... load up the shorts again http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/devilsmiley.gif (it will be the 3rd crack at 8000 for me http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/weirdsmiley.gif got to get it right sooner or later?????? cheers aus

  24. In reply to: sugarman on Tuesday 26/06/07 07:45pm this from IG PDS refers to share CFDs, but the index would proberbly the same (I think) KB would know he uses IG for the XJO Placing a Non-Guaranteed Stop Order on a particular position can result in a substantial reduction in the margin requirement. The margin requirement is calculated as the difference between the current level of the position, $5.45, and the Stop Order level, $5.70, and adding a factor for market slippage. The market slippage factor is no more than 30% of the normal margin requirement (in this case 10%). In this example, the margin required would equal $2067.50 ($5.70 Stop Order level - $5.45 opening level = $0.25. $0.25 x 5000 shares = $1,250 plus additional $817.50 required for market slippage calculated as 10% normal margin requirement x $5.45, opening level x 5000 shares x 30% slippage factor = $817.50). Margin requirements for positions with Non-Guaranteed Stop Orders will not exceed the normal margin percentage requirement based on the current share. cheers aus
  25. In reply to: Danville on Tuesday 26/06/07 12:02pm Hi Dan this from IG PDS hope it helps The maximum interest rate that may be levied under this PDS is the relevant interbank or central bank cash rate target +3% (for long positions) or -3%(for short positions). The relevant interbank or central bank cash rates used are listed in the Contract Details on our website or are available on request. cheers aus
