Climate change is soon going to cost governments trillions of dollars to combat.

They have a chance to stop global warming by spending billions now or wait and it will cost even more.

time is running out.

wont be posting much more if at all, its a waste of time.

The sad thing is that unless global warming is stopped immediately then the big corporates and the others will have nothing left anyway.

The planet's oncoming changes will wipe them off the map.

Even if they don't care for the environment then you would think they would have at least enough sense to care for their own skins.

They are too focussed on the big deal dollar.

Copenhagen was our leaders very last chance to combat global warming.
All they had to say was 'everybody adopt the vegetarian diet' and we could have made it.
Instead they were silent.

Now people are becoming incresingly aware of the methane pouring from previously frozen ice.

The sky is falling and it's past time to sound the alarm.
The only way we can stop the gas from escaping into our atmosphere is if everybody adopts the vegetarian diet.
There is no longer time left for green energy technologies to stop the gas;.

We have to look at the biggest contributor to global warming, the meat diet and simply switch over..
Even President Obama recognizes the environmental benefits and mentions saving a trillion dollars a year in hospital and medical bills caused by meat related illnesses.

Oh and the staircases along safety bay beach are collapsing into the rising sea.
its amazing to witness, 30 years ago i walked this beach and there was 20-30m of beachsand nice and dry to walk on.
Now the sea is eating away the sandunes.
There is no beach left at high tide.

It's officially time to freak, and still most of us are complacent..

The world's leaders are now well aware of the methane clathrates melting and venting this dangerous gas into the sea and atmosphere.

The UN secretary himself recently visited the arctic and saw the catastrophic melting taking place..

"Ban also noted that methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more heat-trapping than CO2, is escaping from reservoirs in melting permafrost and from the sea bed. In a study of such emissions published Aug. 29 in the Journal of Geophysical Research, a research team by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, underscored this. It concluded “that we may be greatly underestimating the methane fluxes presently occurring in the ocean and from underground into Earth’s atmosphere.” If so, this could drive global warming even faster than anticipated."

from

http://features.csmonitor.com/innovation/2...ut-of-the-sand/


and!


Over 250 plumes of gas have been discovered bubbling up from the sea floor to the west of the Svalbard archipelago, which lies north of Norway. The bubbles are mostly methane, which is a greenhouse gas much more powerful than carbon dioxide.

I guess it's already too late to stop global warming.

Some scientists are now stating more than 50% of total greenhouse gases come from animal agriculture..
Vincent Warwick, an Arctic expert at Université Laval, said at the time: "This is a dramatic and disturbing event. It shows that we are losing remarkable features of the Canadian North that have been in place for many thousands of years. We are crossing climate thresholds, and these may signal the onset of accelerated change ahead."

The ice melt of 2007 seemed to confirm Warwick's fears. Reports since then claim the Arctic ice could be gone by 2013.

We have already crossed some critical climate thresholds. The world not only has to drastically cut back its greenhouse gas emissions but also begin to take steps to deal with the inevitable changes that global warming will cause. The much-feared tipping points - which would cause massive icecap and ice shield melting, and plunge the world headlong into severe weather systems, causing broad devastation and rising seas - seem increasingly probable.

If you still have to consume animal products then the cost will be escalating global warming.

Methane is already seeping out of the sea and previous frosty areas.

It's the gas production we must reduce, and immediately.

animal agriculture produces 17% of total greenhouse gas emissions.

Turn vege and the planet will repair itself, eat meat and it's all over.

The world's leaders are slowly coming around, but too slowly!!

Even the most stubborn human cannot ignore the changes the planet is undergoing, from floods to fires to droughts and earthquakes.

We are rapidly running out of resources.

The food fed (and wasted) to farm animals is enough to feed two billion humans.

Just replace the animal meat with soya or mushroom meat, so simple.

Time is running out.

Meat and Dairy production cause more greenhouse gases than all the transport on the planet combined.

So if you want to avert a global disaster go vegan.

If the methane keeps escaping from the sea floor then it's game over for you.

Also stops the torture and killing of billions of innocent animals yearly.

Tonight could see the 10,000 fall.

The next couple of months or even by end november could see a crash to 7500-8000

Depending on if the financial system around the world stabilizes there could beb even more downside than the above numbers.

Big meat eaters here.

So perhaps Perth is first in line for some softening up.

The vege diet is the ONLY way to get out of the global warming threats we face now.

All other ways will take too long.

It's so easy, replace meat with tofu or vege (soy) protein and save lives, become healthier and save the planet.

Otherwise we have only 4 or 5 years left to live.

It's that urgent.

We are fightting for our lives.

See clathrate thread for one of the threats.

Methane is currently being released along the coasts of the countries from the sea bed, enough to make some us tired or feeling unwell but not enough to knock us off, yet.

The colder water cities may not notice, the warmer water cities may notice.

If we cross the line, masssive amounts of gas will be released from the sea and thats that.

There will be some big moves downside on the Dow then.

Only a month or two away from that.

Could the month of October be the background for the mother of all crashes?

Wer'e up to 50c and the chart is defying gravity.

This is shaping up to be one of those companies where their tenements are brilliant.

Out of Phosphate, tenements next to MAK only 3 times the size.
Coal with potential for 500m tons.
Or their 1.5 million oz of gold near Charters Towers about to be drilled further to increase resource.

Any of these assets values the current sp in excess of 50c and combined, the upside is staggering.

With land title approval hopefully coming up soon for Mt. Mulligan, this will give the sp a further rerating.

Jbeatty, over the course of a hundred years the sea bed changes and currents change.

Some areas along the coast become lower.

The same simplistic argument is used against global warming, some regions are experiencing record cold snaps so they say how can there be global warming?

A friend here in Perth runs a vegetarian restaurant and in response to the climate change/global warming threat has moved to free/donation only.

Today/Tonight interviewed the owner last week and will screen the program tomorrow night 7pm WA time.

The restaurant, One World Cuisine, is busy with lots of meat eaters amazed at how good the vege food tastes, they eat vege beef, vege sweet and sour pork, vege fish, sausages etc.

There are many who are trying out the new diet out or at least cutting back on the meat.

The worn out, old misinformation that vegetarians only eat lentils and grass is giving way to the realization that there is a huge variety of tasty foods to eat.

Doctors and scientists are recognizing that vegetarians have a much lower incidence of cancer and live healthier lives.

Plus we need all the trees left in the ground to create oxygen and take away co2.

Currently forests and trees are being razed to the ground make pasture for animal agriculture.

Hi Moosey,
Most people can now see the physical effects of global warming, whether it is record high temperatures over the past few years like we have had in Australia or the seasons moving out of balance. Insects and animals are becoming diseased or are becoming extinct.

Perhaps they may notice the sea rising, carving out the coastlines, some populated islands are even under threat with local populations being evacuated. I heard Indonesia have lost a few small islands already.

With the rising sea levels, tsunamis are more dangerous with the recent Indonesian and Bangldesh disasters an example.

I just wrote a letter to Kevin Rudd which was passed onto Penny Wong, Minister of Climate Change and Water about my concerns and the need to go vegetarian.

I received a reply stating that climate change is one of the Australian governments highest priorities and the plans they are putting into place to reduce greenhouse emissions.

Unfortunately most world government plans do not include a vege diet though word is getting out about the health benefits and the environmental sustainability such a diet offers.

Even Al Gore presumably does not want to give up his meat, so people are a much behind the times.
There are a number of meat substitutes made from soy protein or gluten, high in protein and taste just like meat and look like it too.

Of course they will have to tow the line too.

The Chinese are building one new coal powered power plant every week or two.

China released about 22.5 million tons of sulfur in 2004, more than twice the amount released in the United States, and a Chinese regulator publicly estimated last autumn that emissions would reach 26 million tons for 2005, although no official figures have been released yet. Acid rain now falls on 30 percent of China.


Japan may be 1,000 miles east of Shanxi Province, but the Japanese government is so concerned about acid rain from China that it has agreed to lend $125 million to Shanxi. The money will help pay for desulfurization equipment for large, coal-fired steel plants in the provincial capital, Taiyuan.

The Russians, Chinese and Indians leaders are fully aware of their part in global warming but their people want what we take for granted, cars, air conditioners, units, houses with the latest tv's and electrical equiment using gigawatts of electricity..
Thats a problem, how do we say you can't have these things?

The more immediate problem is the thawing clathrates, if they continue to release methane into the atmosphere then the planet's warming will accelerate past the point of no return.
The gigatons of methane on the sea floor held down by pressure and freezing temperatures is released en mass, game over for civilization and our share trading..
Then the sea rises, floods the coastlines, tidal waves crash into our cities and tornados far more powerful than ever are created.

Hence the need for immediate action to stop global warming.

Immediate as in right now.

Fortunately the world's leaders already agree that human's are responsible for climate change and global warming however they still shy away from implementing the easiest way of reducing greenhouse gases.

"Still, the G8 environment ministers said there is "strong political will" to reduce the greenhouse gases responsible for climate change during the G8 leaders annual summit set for July 7 to 9 on the Japanese island of Hokkaido."

That is adoptiing a vegetarian diet.

Animal agriculture is responsible for producing more greenhouse gases than all transportation on the planet combined.

Slaughtering animals is also unecessary, inhumane and cruel.

A lot of people put their heads in the sand because the threat is so big and frightening to face.

However we won't be trading or investing for much longer unless we make immediate changes to our lifestyles starting with our diets.

The problem with making forward valuations on an oiler's SP is that the vast majority of drill holes are 'dusters'

Most traders will buy pre news release and sell pre news release.

Russian polar scientists recently report methane clathrates off the coast of Siberia becoming POROUS and commencing to release methane gas into the atmosphere.

"Since methane is a potent greenhouse gas, more worrisome than carbon dioxide, the result would be a drastic acceleration of global warming. Until now this idea was mostly academic; scientists had warned that such a thing could happen. Now it seems more likely that it will."

"Natalia Shakhova also passed on the question of whether to expect a gradual gas emission or an abrupt burst of large quantities of methane. "No one can say right now whether that will take years, decades or hundreds of years," she said. But one cannot rule out sudden methane emissions. They could happen at "any time.""
http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/...,547976,00.html

Also when people from around the world report smelling methane gas, it may be formerly subsea methane they are smelling?

A few weeks later he rolls up in a Lotus sports car and had on a suit.
I asked his mate where did he get it from and he said he was hired high up in an IT company who gave him the car as a lease car.

It's not possible to pick a bottom as the future is never known.

Through current economic data and TA those with the resources and number crunching software can work out weightings, that is, the likelihood of a bottom.
That is as good as it gets.

Some people will pick it because at any given time someone is doing just that.

Looking at the Dow chart, 12,500 is support, if this fails with momentum then 11,500 is the next target.

If the Dow consolidates here and interest rates are quickly cut with other stimulating actions the market could stabilize and improve into 2008.

Gold stocks are looking great as are oil stocks.

3.5-4% inflation is still ok, check out the years 1972-1983..

Humanity has only a few years to turn back the warming process, otherwise the Arctic/Antarctic ice melts and no longer reflects the heat into space, the earth heats up quickly and appreciably, the Methane Clathrates melt, spewing giga tons of Methane into the atmosphere and wipes out 80 or 90% of life on earth.

A miniscule version of this occurred here...

This is a word to commit to memory, because it can make the present global warming look so tame, almost non existant.

Clathrate is methane gas stored in unimaginable quantities below the sea bed and under the thawing tundras in Siberia and elsewhere.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methane_clathrate

Scientists are privately and occasionally publicly freaked about this danger to humanity.

The previously frozen tundras are now partly lakes of water and sludge, if these dry the gas stays put, if they remain soggy then Oh Oh, look out.

If the sea temp rises much more then the frozen gas rises to the surface of the sea and directly into the atmosphere dramatically accelerating the warming process.

If this happens then a lot of the coastline will be underwater and typhoons the likes never before seen will be frequent.

We, as humanity have a tiny window of opportunity in the next year or two to change our lifestyles to clean and green and vegetarian.

Why vege?

Because meat agriculture produces more greenhouse gases than all the cars, trucks etc on the entire planet.

http://www.goveg.com/environment-globalwarming.asp

If we don't change now then we may commit 'Global Catastrophe' to memory while we still have one.

Gold appreciated 30% in 2007.

This year there will be added impetus from US inflation, falling US dollar increased fund and government buying, oil continuing to rise etc etc.

So a 50% increase is a reasonable ask, thats only 20% more growth than last year.

That'd conservatively give US$1200 per ounce during 2008.

However i expect market excitement will fluctuate it a bit higher, say $1400 peaking.

It's a great time for gold shares and a multi year gold bull market coming up.

The US market may drag on all shares if it drops much further but who knows it may stabilise.

Last month (November 2007) Canada's Africa Oil delegation visited the region to brief leaders on its planned oil exploration activities for next year.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/071218/worl...cs_puntland_oil

Puntland and the (TFG Government ) recognise and acknowledge the contracts by Range Resources and Africa Oil and their effort over the last 2 years on the exploration and development of Puntland's natural resources.

Set out below is the Africa Oil operations update released with respect to the oil and gas exploration project on the Nogal and Dharoor Blocks in Puntland into which Africa Oil is earning an 80% interest (from Range) and is operator.

Range is extremely encouraged by the progress Africa Oil is making and looks forward to further progress:

• Seismic has been successfully completed on the Nogal Block, Puntland
• First well expected to be spudded in first quarter 2008
• Drill program also planned for the Dharoor block, Puntland
• Africa Oil makes key technical appointment

http://harowo.com/2007/11/04/range-resourc...rations-update/

Looks like good times for Range resources next year.

Dow at 12800 would mean that it has officially, (10%), corrected from it's high of 14,000.

Traders should expect that at least.

All eyes will be on that line in the sand, 12800 to see if the market falls beyond a correction into a crash or churns for a while and then continues to progress beyond 14000, late this year into 2008 towards 15000.

The July Quarterly report updated Inco's progress searching for nickel at Roe Hills tenements.

'During the Quarter, Oroya’s joint venture partner in the Roe Hills Project, Inco Australia
Limited Partnership (Inco), completed a major drilling program comprising 477 aircore
holes for a total of 15,136 metres, testing the prospective komatiitic ultramafic horizons
over 36 strike kilometres. Drill holes were spaced at 100 metres across strike, inclined
at 60º and in almost all cases were drilled to refusal, providing good coverage of the
steeply dipping target sequences and fresh rock bottom hole samples.'

'Preliminary drilling results and interpretation generally confirm the favourable
lithochemistry of the ultramafic rocks for nickel sulphides.'

Mincor have mines 100km away in the same ultramafic style formations.

Carnilya Hill produced 47,000 tonnes of nickel for BHP and WMC in the same ultramafic style formations and they are only 50km away.

Inco have decided drill further and after EM surveying have discovered two new EM anomalies which will be drilled.

So far this news and the significance of the ultramafics being fertile have passed clean under the radar of investors.

Hi,
I was reading on the RRS thread some time ago that some people thought a bot was responsible for some sells or buys?
They were suspicious because the purchases were for the same amount and only small amounts.

Why does this happen?

Is this some type of automated trading?

I noticed in ORO's course of sales today that six 4000 share $104 buys have gone through during the day, why would someone bother ?

Investors used the announcement to offload some more holdings.

MST made a mistake long ago not roadshowing the tech to other customers, if only to move the US into locking in the patents for their own use.

Meanwhile years have passed and other techs are catching up and will eventually surpass it.

Hi Grommit,
Yes, i hold.

If i were a potential investor, i'd wait until the money situation is resolved..

Maybe management can raise money in some other way, partner, private investor?

If not, dilution and a temp fall in SP is usually the norm.

ORO are working hard on many fronts, increasing exploration properties, exploring Club Terrace VIC,Gold and other metals, Sofala,NSWGold and other metals, Steiglitz,Vic,Gold, commencing field study of Fraser Range WA, commencing study of Moruya NSW, Pambula,NSW and Gumble NSW for Gold and copper.

Inco were still drilling last month, up to 600 aircore holes for nickel.

So the potential for finding and developing a resource is excellent, remember the properties are either on historical mining sites, undisturbed since the gold rush of the 1800's or adjacent to producing tenements.

The question, is it worth $250,000,000 to take over Fox ?

The suitor would want a fair return on their investment, say 50%.

So that makes it 375M dollars of metal PROFIT that needs to be gained.

Starts to look less likely for a T/O unless more economic reserves are found.

I metioned yonks ago that Terry Streeter holds significant stakes in both WSA and FXR.

WSA is almost a 1 billion dollar company so can expand their production through a T/O of Fox.

Streeter of course is well placed to know if this is worthwhile or not.

Fox has yet to prove that their metal is economic.

With nickel at $23 pound it'd be hard not to turn a profit.

Then there are zinc and coppper discoveries.

Legend have large tenements here too so some consolidation would make sense.

US debt has ballooned from 1 trillion to 8.6 trillion in just 25 years.

Concerning stuff for the Americans.

How long before overseas investors bail and move funds back to Asia and the EU?

Soon enough there will be an Asian grouping and common currency much like the EU.

Such an odd little chart band rising from 11,500 to 12,500.

So tight.

I t looks a little like it was coaxed up there.


10 or12 PE ratio or so gives some upside, 20, too expensive.

Dow will probably soon drop back to 11,500.

A longer term target of 7000 is in place.

The metals bull market has some time to go before i would call it 'all over'

The real value of the US dollar is decreasing with inflation as well.

$3 a pound of copper will be the norm and base price in the near future.

The good ol days of cheap metals are over, sorry about that, but we will all need to get used to diminishing resources on the planet.

The quality of future metal mines and oil wells is also declining.

The easy resources have been found.

The copper will be the new gold and gold the new platinum.

Traders look for volume, some are ticker watchers and can pick up increasing volume and are aware when a stock is about to move, BEFORE it has moved.

Announcements are sometimes nectar to a bee.

Some use charts and scan for breakouts or abnormally high volume.

The middle of the day is normally quiet,

Morning or 2.30 t0 4pm are the times best for trading.

I can't trade much, it's not my style, it will be interesting to hear from those who can make a living from day trading.

Until the MOU is upgraded to a signed, done deal and the money is on the table it is still a very risky play.

There is lots of talk of big things to come and a very entertaining thread, yet we are waiting on some substance to back up all the words.

I would say that there will be further delays until the political situation in Somalia is resolved.

The good news is that a united Somalia could be on the agenda !

Hopefully the international community will step in and support this immediately.

That would be fantastic for the country and also for the neighboring, trading nations.

Also for RRS holders of course.

(200 Billion $$ trade surplus !)

So they would not be stupid enough to precipitate a US economic collapse.

Is the Puntland govt autonomous ?

Here it says the Puntland govt are seeking permission from the Somali govt to allow exploration.

'At the weekly Thursday Cabinet meeting in Garowe, the Puntland capital, President Adde said foreign exploration companies offered him $10 million upon the condition of getting the signature of Somali President Abdullahi Yusuf.'

'Puntland signed an agreement with a junior Australian exploration firm in 2005 but has been met with constant internal and external opposition.'

Reports out that opec will reduce supply by 500,000 barrrels per day from Feb 07.

With a finite resource, those with control of supply can really stick it to the world's oil consumers.

$60 per barrel is no longer adequate for opec.

$100 per barrel is a matter of when, not if.

It's interesting, historical and scary how fast it's happening.

Hi cy7,
it normal for the market to under value or overvalue shares.

Thats how people make and lose money, volatility.

ORO's management have already created value by expanding and working on their exploration tenements.

However the value is not yet enough to get the SP off the ground, it needs a bit more.

I am happy with the management's skills and progress and hold.

Back when i owned CBH at 25c and FXR at 26c ( again these co's have competent management) the market was not impressed with my enthusiasm and here at SS, there was little posting on either co.

Now 3 and 6 bags later everybody is excited and positive.

As an investor i have future targets, ignore the SP fluctuations and focus on the co's progress and subsequent value being created.

Eventually this translates into a higher market cap and investor's profit..

Hi CY7,
Here is another CSIRO link...

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story...086-643,00.html

A NEW gold rush is beginning in Victoria - and it's one a former senior government geologist says could produce discoveries to rival those of the fabled rushes of the 1850s.

Several companies, including majors like Gold Fields of South Africa and Newcrest Mining, are already drilling or pegging tenements looking for gold the original prospectors never knew was there.

Those old-timers targeted the rich quartz reefs and visible gold that was relatively easily found. But this time the hunt is on for what is called disseminated gold, or "invisible gold" -- lower-grade material widely dispersed and which is not obvious from surface indications.

But that gold is now economical to mine using modern mining technology.

CSIRO former head of exploration and mining Neil Phillips will tell the Mineral Council of Australia's first ever gold seminar next Monday that he believes huge quantities of gold remain undiscovered in Victoria.

The market agrees with you tibbs.

93M shares subscribed for with a shortfall of 3M.

Let's see how the SP does next week with those 1.6c shares being received.

Steiglitz, south of Bendigo is looking fairly promising for drilling, they held off drilling as the soil sampling showed gold over a larger area than expected.

Steiglitz has a 3 km strike length, up from 1km, ( sampling is going to be increased to 7km ?)and no drilling has yet taken place there.
120,000 ounces of gold was produced at Steiglitz by the early Victorian miners 1855-1911 at 24 gram per ton.

Steiglitz (situated between Geelong and Ballarat) is almost a ghost town today, but in the 1860's and 1890's it was a busy goldmining township with hotels, shops, churches and a population of over 1000. At the height of the 1860's gold rush, Steiglitz township had more than 1500 residents, four hotels, a newspaper and a variety of shops.

ORO has other, larger land exploration tenements also in the Bendigo province, 80,000,000 ounces of gold produced here to date.

The cave in at Endeavour shocked management into diversifying to reduce risk so now they have multiple projects on the go.

I can't see CBH running too many mines so they will cherry pick acccording to profitibility.

Since management is over east it makes sense to run the mines over there, SS may well be offered all or part to an interested party over west, that's my opinion.

I liked the Abc peak oil part where the Saudi's say

'Yes, we have plenty of oil capacity left and will be ramping up our production over the next few years'

and the American expert says 'Well why don't they allow us to do an audit on their fields, i wouldn't be prepared to take their word for it'



laughingsmiley.gif

These oil producing countries now have the westerners on their knees begging for oil.
That is a strong bargaining chip.

The Saudi guy summed it up by saying We can supply you, HOWEVER, costs are rising and it will be more EXPENSIVE.
Politely saying pay up from now on if you want our oil.
The smaller oil producing countries will now hammer the western oil burning countries but may not be as polite..
Having overseas companies 'owning' the fields won't stop the governments demanding a 200% increase in taxes.

As for the oil excess capacity coming on line, the present rising oil price does not give that much credence.

I'll have a proper read of the pdf, later, thanks. smile.gif

FXR on the radio, a 2 minute presentation.

Why bother for 2 minutes ?

Speaking of two's, i'm surprised FXR is not $2 atm, being a copper and nickel producer. biggrin.gif

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to twelve we go icon13.gif

It's going to be interesting over the next week or two to see if 8000 ton LME holds.

Any industrial or production delays will squeeze the Nickel price to record highs even sooner.

I noticed it's been very cheap, a little too cheap if you ask me !

There has been an unusual amounts of sell orders (if you get my drift) despite the fundamentals and high zinc price.

Look who has been buying lately, Toho Zinc , funny that the millions they've been buying hasn't increased the SP. grrr.gif

Aren't they supposed to make a takeover offer at 24% shareholding. grrr.gif

Great read, copper supply will become tighter and tighter from now on.

Interesting to note that head grade is declining across the board as well.

Bodes well for the metal bulls out there.

Hi favshare,
I once met James Morrison, bumped into him at a shop in Sydney, he was a friendly, genuine character.

I can play/jam the accoustic guitar in A minor pentatonic scale.

Though my rythym is mostly made up, a non musician would probably not really notice.

Now i like more positive music so i'll have to learn a nice major scale.

I see the nickel LME stock is holding below 16,000 ton .

Should it stay here, over $10 a pound we go.

Should it continue falling then a target of $14-$15 per pound is in place. tongue.gif

IMO. biggrin.gif

If China has an economic crisis, i wish Australia had the same.

There are plenty of extremist views out there.

China still has a very competitive Yuan backing the economy up.

America has raised their rates sixteen times and they are still alive.

So China raises their rates to cool their economy, hardly a crisis.

That is 5 billion estimated within five years, currently selling at 2 billion.

Still looking very good for this stock, can see some upside ahead.

So say as a guess, a 10c margin gives $10,000,000 profit on sales of 100,000,000.

That's quite good providing they can gain a larger market share.

Annual sales of 5 billion in safety needles gives quite some upside.

Looking very good for EMS investors !!

So, how to value the company?

What is their margin on the needle ?

How much does each needle sell for and how much compared to competitors?

Any investor have an idea?

Metal prices are recovering so it's looking good.

Just got to watch the Dow Jones index.

If it's stable (ish) or rises, all will be good.

'Lets all realise that US$ currency is totally nothing to do with future as its on the way down. if not sooner it will be later.'

It has a lot to do with inflation because if it is worth less, more of them are needed to buy overseas goods.

'it's usually absorbed by households depending on the need for the product & its alternatives.'

Thats a good point i never considered, the consumer can delay the inflationary effect by changing their type of purchase or going without luxury or entertainment items.

' Maybe new emerging asian economies may come out of nowhere'

India is preparing to be the next China.
Give them ten years to build factories and so on.
Guess what will happen to the price of commodities then !

QUOTE (IGO4IT @ Friday 16/06/06 08:37pm)

Hi IGO4IT,
I like the inflation thread as it covers all the bases and can be expanded into miner,manufacturer, retailer and consumer perspectives.

The manufacturers have in the most absorbed the increased cost of materials by better productivity and planning.
HOWEVER you will find that they eventually pass the increased costs on.
They being the small to medium manufacturer.
The big manufacturers can bulk sell and use scale to overcome increasing material costs to some extent.

The small and medium manufacturer who has to compete with the big companies have been hurting and are now being forced to pass on the cost to the consumer.

This time lag is one of the reasons inflation is tricky to control, they can ease it but then it breaks out elsewhere kind of like a bushfire, a spark or ember can set of a new blaze.

Keep in mind it may take several years more of rate rises before inflation falls consistantly.

Another cause is money supply, the US government has hidden the m3 supply.
Why?
If they knew how much new currency was being printed investors would pull out of the US dollar and the greenback value would crash.
What effect will the extra money supply have on controlling inflation ?

There is more to inflation than rising commodities.

Builders in America are going to increase the cost of building a new average sized home by $5000 because of rising materials costs including concrete and copper.

New home security is increasing as thieves can strip copper from the newly built home making the owner pay twice.

The rising prices are continuing to be felt and we can expect the interest rates to keep rising.

When we see a sustained fall in inflation then we can get on with the bull market.

Until then hang on or bail.

Keep check of monthly inflation here...

No one really knows what the future holds, we can just make educated guesses.

Sometimes we will be right other times, wrong.

When the big numbers fail it is a wake up call.

11,000 has failed on the Dow and with rising interest rates we can stare at 10,000 within 4-6 weeks.

5000 has failed for the all ords.

4200-4400 would be the likely targets.

watch 4750, a key support.

Looks like i'm the only one to see red ahead.

That's ok i don't mind being wrong.

Looking at 75 years of market history, the average Price/Earnings ratio for the S&P 500 for the last nine major market tops (excluding 2000's) was 18.55. The average PE ratio for the S&P 500 for the last nine major market bottoms (excluding 2002's) was 9.39. That gives us a mean PE of 13.97.

Sorry the US markets are not at a bottom.

We need the US stock market to fall 30-50% first.

Inflation is still rising.

We can expect another rate rise, late June.

Dead cat bounce on the Dow tonight.

Tough Savvy traders will probably sell down later in the session.

Oil back to $50 to $55 would be a welcome sight and ease the pressure.

Wer'e not out of the woods by any stretch of the imagination.

Metals look to have bottomed at least.

Yes, there is plenty of money to be made going short with this volatility.

There is market manipulation by the big boys who are making a fortune.

So far the correction is 10%, double the previous corrections.

Understandable in this Bull run.

There could be another 5% to around 4400, i can't see more than that at this stage.

There will be players gradually taking long positions in the present freeefall.

The fundamental world economic strength is support enough for the continuation of the bull market.

There is a cloud still in the sky, everybody knows what that is.
