    Metastock I like(d)....haven't used it for awhile.You need the software first (not sure what they charge these days...maybe you can tell me in your reply)But then you need daily data for the charting software (Metastock) which can be purchased from vaious companies.I used to use Paritech.
  2. Theoretical ex-rights was 2.54...how did someone arrive at that number? thanks Mercury

    LOOKING FOR THE BEST ONLINE TRADING FEES. THEY USED TO BE better...but over past couple of years I have seen remarkable changes. Maybe because there isn't so much competition anymore??? comsec wants .12% for trades over 25000$. Now why would a trade of $90,000 cost $108 brokerage (@.12%) when the computer work is the same for 10,000 as 100,000$? who has a better broker out there? thanks Mercury

    SIE

    Hello Frodo, I was looking at posts and saw SIE and thought I would see what people were saying...Saw your post and thought I would write something. Years ago I saw a takeover offer for SEI. Almost all the shares were transferred over to a Polish company, and those holding could sell out at the takeover offer, or switch to the Polish Company...which I did. The shenanigans that occurred there were quite astonishing....with wild manipulation to entice Europeans to buy the stock.....Australians who kept their shares, and there weren't many, were no longer informed of announcements , and it was only thru contact with a Polish broker that I found out what was going on... I no longer trust anything that SIE are involved with. If , and I say ""IF"" I were to buy this company's stock it would be purely on a charting basis which told me that something was afoot. But there will never be a lot of shares to buy....there just aren't many holders left I would guess. However, things may have changed...but I can't see how. Control is in Poland. (As I recall the Israeli, who was the major shareholder, and was involved in the Diabetes formula....did not sell his shares when PolishControl occurred, and it was my belief that he was staying in as part of the manipulation....And so I stayed in too. It was the biggest win I have ever had...but I wouldn't trust those directors at all..not at all...Just my thoughts )

    QUR

    Have been watching QUR from time to time. Seems to me that there is a chance that some very good news is in the pipeline...or they will have trouble raising the funds at this low price. Wait and see. A lot of tech companies doing OK these days.
  6. Glad to be NOT in this one. Will the banks pull the pin? something has to give...and it seems like it is giving now. Falling into a hole. What chances does the company have of surviving....any bankers out there with a thought?
  7. SORRY ....DIDN'T NOTE THE DATE.
  8. that 20% will be from PV and affiliates......can't see anyone in their right mind investing now with nickel prices as they are....and grades as found so far.
  9. MGX is holding its own....EB don't know why you would put MGX in the same bag as AGO. Can you illucidate a bit? thanks
  10. so if China were to devalue, as they seem to be doing already, it is for the purpose of selling more of their goods to other countries. This is turn makes manufacturing in Australia and America and other countries less competitive with China. does this mean that our money will move further down , or only that it is harder to compete with the YUAN.? Should Australia be worried?

    GMM

    Low volume trading (and only a couple days before Xmas at that).....but the SP has made a move that would NORMALLY be of interest...but the low volume is a concern. Having had two recent CR's it is not likely to have another soon (if ever) but the desire to taek profit and even free carry for some, may be high enough to subdue the SP . There will be a lot of persons who will score big as this company moves forward. the promise of quick production, (and the phantom of James Bay beckoning)...may be enough to propel this stock to higher levels in quicksmart time. Having looked at the SP and its breakout, one would have to think that people are in no hurry to sell........it isn't like there is a iceberg of sellers ..... GXY has a lower price target....yet it has more irons in the fire (at present) than GMM. The possibility that its brine production could move ahead sooner than later is something that will have lithium price watchers considering. Should any news come out about early production or a buyer for future production, and I would expect that the 16 ct target price might be right fairly quickly...and perhaps even beyond. The number of shares out there does not make that easy....yet considering the volume traded recently, and some investors names bandied about, it could be a tug of war between those who have great expectations and those who think GXY has risen too far too fast. The men behind GMM are certainly confident in their company.....and their recent CR was just enough and no more to get their production rolling. They don't want to dilute their holdings any more than necessary...as they have their sights set on the future , rather than just their director and management pay cheques.... Welll. that is my opinion....

    QUR

    They did mention another CR...question is....will they manipulate it to run up so as to get a better price....or just raise at 5cts? (or something like that)

    thanks for that Arty. Anyone out there using a margin loan account ...???...and what are their thoughts about their provider.? At present I use Leveraged equities but never get myself into strife as a result of using the margin loan to excess. As a result the company (leveraged equities) has decided that their income is not enough from me. Instead of a 20000$ loan or more over a year, they seldom get much interest from me. As such, they have decided to get monies from me by charging a $5 fee for each transaction I make unless I take out and keep a minimum balance of 20000$ in margin loans. does anyone out there use a margin loan account that does not have such fees (at present)? I note that Macquarrie charges a200$ fee if a margin loan is paid out within 4 months of starting. I often pay out my loans...ASAP....as I trade quite regularly and the loans frequently are paid back on those stocks which are allowed margin lending. Any input, as I decide what direction to go (or to stay ) would be appreciated. Mercury

    Triage suggested that persons can be caught out by a collapse of a broker such as BBY. just the stocks bought and sold during the T+3 window are at risk...is that correct?
  15. this is very good news .... but one must realize that the 100% survival rate is limited (at this time) to 60 days. Just the same, that is better than any other results from other companys' products. I am no expert, but if this 60 days is extended to years, then this company's share are going to be worth much much more. Holders will be thinking of this and one will see further announcements in the future regarding trials and results.

    GMM

    From Arties post in February to Now....things have not really changed much, except that the deal is not 100% for GMM but 50% plus a share of the Canadian Lithium project at James Bay . There are other details too. James Bay is not easy to get too if my geography is correct ....few roads. So fly in sort of stuff. And maybe in the winter snow/ice roads can be ploughed thru. That is in the future....when the money from the Australian mine brings about cash for further progress. There are, of course, many Lithium hopefuls now....and the future is certainly....not a certainty for James Bay. STill...GMM should be at a higher price come 2016 ....But you're right Fotios is no dummy. Got himself 6 million shares for .008cts each. Merc

    DYE

    If one goes back a bit, the price of the stock went down drastically when that bigger company basically took control. How they wield their weight is a key ingredient to the use of the products. But shareprices are often moved by perception and broker reports. These reports can give some big wins, and then the SP could drop again. One to watch.

    DYE

    from the reading I have done, the research is top notch. But the company seems to be under the thumb of others who have bankrolled it. And it is almost as if this is a company that is in conflict with itself. Like an automotive maker that must move along with technology , thus dinosauring its own money making products.....by replacing it with its new products. This is a hard thing to do. Losses of jobs, and shaking up the status quo. Especially when you have friends in high places and they would be affected by your revolutionary products. Friends are important. Timing must be right for introduction of such products. I can see huge changes for the world in the near future, and Dyesol's research could very well be a big part of it. But I don't hold. Merc

    very low volume, but any positive announcement would see it move quickly. Melua will be laughing right now. Doubled his money already.

    MZI

    judging by the posts for this stock, MZI is NOT on everybody's favorite list....and there are good reasons why. The stock has dropped to a very low price and with lots of shares (now consolidated) and one of those companies that likes to take advantage of a good track, showed up with investing money with high interest payments and lots of clauses (I don't know what they all were) to make sure they had a good chance of pulling off a big win should the company get into the winning circle. Well the winning circle is in view and they are taking advantage of their clauses to get shares at a low price. There might be a few investors / traders on this forum who may have some interest in this company, and I would like to hear their views. I had money in this one long ago.
  21. Coles and Woolies and Costco and Aldi I can see doing great compared to Metcash. And selling the golden goose (car parts and accessories) was desperation. Aldi tries to make its own stuff. Recently I asked about a couple of products that disappeared from their shelf. I was told that they were making their own product to displace the one that was there. (Aldi does not give much selection in many products there is only one to choose from....often it is theirs....and the margin is good I would think, and they can easily undercut IGA) . I can certainly see Aldi succeeding well. aldi are smart operators. And they don't have shareholders ..... so are beholden to no one...
