Folau is at it again
He would be a prime example of the dangers of rugby. All those body slams and head clashes must take a toll on players' brains.
Maybe, some of the mental health budget should be diverted into a study whether there is a case for banning rugby.

oh, and while we're at it: Could wearing lycra on pushbikes have a similarly brain-debilitating effect?
I could think of one prominent "Celebrity" underpinning that causality, too.

Today's gap-up and recent volume make me think there's a fund raiser coming up again.
The last QR showed there's hardly enough cash in the kiddy to cover the director fees. That is definitely a no-no.

The first batch has already been issued to big instos. It will lead to a sizeable dilution.

I am more inclined to give the brickbat to the ASX today.
Nor only did they "hide" the return notice from suspension in yesterday's after-hours announcement, which many would have missed this morning, but they also failed to wipe the board of existing buy and sell orders, which is mandated after a suspension.
Adding insult to injury, they then had the gall to tell us to check our orders - 2 hours after their stuff-up! How would you feel if you had left a 19c bid over night that you were unable to withdraw while the stock was suspended!
It's a disgrace!

- more mutton dressed as lamb

not necessarily mutton. Schuldscheine have been around in Germany for yonks. Essentially an IOU, a Schuldschein contains provisions that "I", the borrower, have a say when it comes to repaying "U", the lender.
Coming from vestiges of the German sense of fair play, it is more balanced and gives the borrower greater rights than the standard US model, and therefore is routinely rejected especially by US lenders. As has been pointed out above, in the US variant of Capitalism, it is inconceivable that the owner of the capital could waste a nano-second thinking of the needs and interests of the borrower.
The different attitude was also the main reason why Karl Marx' Das Kapital stood a far better chance of stoking the fire of discontent among the working have-nots in London than it could have if published in Cologne.

An English father goes into his daughter's bedroom and sees a letter addressed to "Mummy and Daddy" on the bed. With a heavy heart he opens it and reads:

Dearest Mummy and Daddy,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm telling you that I've eloped with my new boyfriend. I've found real love and he is so nice - especially with all his piercings, scars, tattoos and his big American motorcycle.

But it's not only that, I'm pregnant and Ahmed said that we will be very happy in his caravan in the forest. He wants to have many more children with me and that's one of my dreams, too. I've learned that marijuana does not hurt anyone and we'll be growing it only for us and Ahmed's friends. They're the ones providing us with all the cocaine and ecstasy we could ever want. In the meantime, we'll pray for science to find a cure for AIDS so Ahmed can get better. He really deserves it.

Don't worry about money. Ahmed has arranged for me to be in films that his friends Leroy and Jahmal make in their basement. Apparently I can earn £200 per scene, and I get a £200 bonus if there are more than 3 men in the scene and an extra £100 for the sheep.

Don't worry, Mummy, now that I'm 15 I know how to take care of myself. Someday we'll visit you and Daddy so that you can meet your grandchildren

Your loving daughter,
Sarah










P.S.. Daddy, it's not true - I'm watching television with Jessica and her parents next door
I just wanted to show you that there really are far worse things in life than England losing The Ashes.

What "basic free charting service" would that be, please?
Who offers the service? And what does it cover?

How many chart templates?
How many saved charts with customised indicators/ channels/ trend lines/ Fibonacci Studies... ?
Does it differentiate between entry/ exit signals and scripted chart indicators?

Those, and lots more, were the features that set MA7 apart from the rest, and by all accounts I hear and read, the new browser-based Bourse program doesn't have a patch on any.

Congrats on your achievement, Flower. smile.gif
I'm only Over B...dy 70, and, given the shape my lungs are in (thanks, Wittenoom sad.gif ), unlikely to get to 80.

As to MA7 and Bourse, I saw the writing on the wall some time ago. I've been using Pulse for almost 10 years, initially in conjunction with the MA, but for the last 2-3 years as my main and only charting tool. As a frequent trader through OpenMarkets.com.au I get the subscription for free and it's at least as fast as webIRESS. Charts needed a little tweaking to get closer to Trinity, but there are other nice features, such as D-Boxes and Regression Channels that compensate for the loss.

I've never touched the new Bourse, but hear daily cries of despair from friends who try to transfer their current templates and trading methods across.

Marry Christmas, and a Happy and Prosperous 2018.

Being outclassed and belted all around the WACA by two Aussies is embarrassing. Especially when two Australian batsmen look set to exceed the entire English team's run total.

Well, it's pleasing to know that the Market makes up its own mind - and it's sweet with Capilano. (So am I tongue.gif )
Although the weekly chart starts showing Bearish Divergence, I'm holding on to my long-term position, but that doesn't prevent me from trading swings as well, selling at weekly Highs, then following Bullish signals on the daily chart to buy back lower. The percentages may not quite compare to the likes of EVE or OBJ, but once a range has been established there isn't much effort involved to wait for the bend at either end.

Did anyone follow this stock?
OK, some swings offered opportunities, especially if one followed the sentiment on "that other" Forum - and did the opposite tongue.gif
But Boy! Do these guys know how to play the gullible!Say nothing, but say it well enough and someone will buy.
Today's announcement a case in point: "We sold all our drones, and we'll make more for Christmas!" Great. But the crucial point was missing: What's the Profit Margin?
I can sell anything on eBay, for example. Set the starting price at 99c with free postage offered and wait for the bids. :D

But some buyers snapped up anything on offer up to 1.2c, the 50% figure on today's top gainers list was the light that attracted the moths. In the end, vwap remained at 1c, so it's odds on a lot of buyers got burned.
The counter bet, however, suggests that "someone" is buying in preparation for a backdoor entry with a new business model. Technically, there is the chance of a triple bottom, IF the price should bounce back above 1c and stay above 1c. The candle on August 7th - in shape and volume similar to today's - suggests otherwise.

Sure, pullbacks create volatility. At the speccie end of town, it's essential to be "on the ball" at all times, lest you zig when the market zags. The first half of November, I couldn't do that, so Cash was best kept in the Bank.
Let's see if I've now got the support level right. I'd started reloading earlier this week and topped up today just before 19c broke. The intraday price and volume increase gave me the cue. Note also how MACD momentum has its tail up and looks set to swing above 0. Next week will tell whether I was reading it right or was fooled by wishful thinking.

Last night, I watched a Party Boat with 200 Bankers and their families and friends catch fire and sink a short distance off Rottnest Island. As quickly as my tinnie's outboard motor could manage, I rushed to Fremantle Harbour to raise the alarm. To make sure, I contacted not only Police, Marine Rescue, and Ambulance Services, but also notified SES and the RAC Rescue Helicopter.
That was 10:30 pm last night. It's a disgrace that now, almost 24 hours later, still nobody has showed up.

I was becoming a little wary when PGM reached 19.5c. That had been strong resistance, and I'd rather see a pullback, even a gap close further down. For a number of reasons, not all of them related to PGM's techs or fundas, I am at present swing-trading this stock mainly intraday or over night, but am reluctant to hold a sizeable position for longer.

Cup and Handle - demands a pullback.

The Oxford Dictionary does list it in both spelling variants: anonymize as well as anonymise.
Apparently, the word came into being in the 1970's as a combination of anonymous and -ize.

If it's that easy, I'd like to lay claim to a combination of lipopygous and -ize, as in
Wifey trying on a new frock, asking hubby "Does this dress lipopygize my back?"
(Regardless of his reply, he'll be in the dog house.)

China can't get enough of Victoria's wine, with exports to the Asian republic jumping 40 per cent in the space of a year.

Red varieties made up the majority of Victoria's wine exports to China, worth a total of $121 million in the 2016-17 financial year, the state's food and fibre annual report revealed on Tuesday.

Victoria also exported more red, white and fortified wine overall, but bulk and sparkling exports fell.

Today's West Australian includes a 16-page full-colour advertorial supplement "WA, State of Lithium". The back page is covered by an ad "Tianqi Lithium / Creating Jobs - Adding Value / Supporting the WA Community"
That will probably turn every taxi driver into an instant expert, spelling the beginning of the end of the Lithium bubble.
But as an overview of the main players in the Li field - at least those with enough cash to spend on that kind of advertising - it may be useful to get your hands on a copy.

For several months now, the All Ords chart has displayed trend channels in Price and MACD that run in opposite directions. Usually, an enduring divergence like this sees the price chart follow the direction of MACD, and only a strong MACD breakout convinces me otherwise.
I noticed similar divergence across global indices in late 2007.

The debt is a loan to the inventor, who had developed the recycling plant in North QLD.
Due mainly to lack of local support, he took the plant to his native country, Egypt.
That timing could have also been much better because he ran into the "Spring Democratz".
At long last, the plant is now up and running, but Ramy Azer remains on site to supervise ramp-up of production.

I've had a decade-long connection and interest in this project. Initially, the expectation was for a manufacturing hub, creating "something" (from cardboard to high-quality panels) out of "nothing" (banana trunks commonly littering the plantation grounds and left to rot). During the downturn, I managed to stay above water by trading swings: buy on dips and sell just enough to retain a few free-carried or just below break-even.
I kept faith in PPY, not least because the BoD refused to bleed what little cash there was. I'm sure they will keep records and expect at some time to get a reward, but that will most likely be on the same footing as other long-standing holders: paid in shares.

To summarise:
I admire a good engineering solution that is environmentally sustainable.
I admire a board of directors that looks towards the future rather than their short-term wages.
That's why I accept the risk as rather small, compared to the potential rewards.

With the new CEO Allan Branch, I believe that the time for substantial rewards has come a lot closer.

I read it somewhat differently:
In earlier "updates", they had promised better wafers by September. Now it turns out, bulk delivery is yet again delayed till after the Jewish Holiday, whichever that is. Suggests to me, they won't be able to start a new integration batch till late October, if that. And what they describe as "different versions" that allow them to pick the best-suited ones, may well be marketing-speak for inconsistent quality across batches.
For holders' sake, I hope I'm wrong. But I'm no longer a holder myself. Just a realist who has seen most of :it" before.

The Health Minister attends the Opening Ceremony of a brand-new Mental Asylum. After cutting the ribbon, he asks the Head Shrink, "How do you determine which patients need to be kept inside this fine facility, and who can be released into the Community?"
"Oh, there is a simple test," replies the Doctor. "We fill a bathtub, then give the patient a thimble, a spoon, and a bucket and ask him or her to empty the tub."
"Ahh - I get it," smiles the Minister. "A normal person would choose the bucket because that's the quickest way."

Massive 'Spambot' Obtains 711 Million E-Mail Addresses Worldwide

http://www.snopes.com/2017/08/31/spambot-email-addresses/

I queried Troy Hunt's website https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and checked a few of my emails. Only one returned a positive result, but the associated password did not. Funny enough, an email address that I used till about 15 years ago also returned a positive. I had been forced to give up when the associated ISP went belly-up.

So, this could well end up as a storm in a teacup. It may not hurt though to take the news as a wake-up reminder and change some passwords.

If you want to slice rabbits, remember that the Latin prefix 'in-' can have two English meanings:
  1. the prefix 'un-' as in 'invisible' = not visible
  2. the preposition 'in' or 'into' as in 'insightful' = bring into sight.
It may require some insight to know what's what. An easy way to figure out if an 'in-' word with a Latin root falls into category 1 or 2: Take the adjective of the word in question and add 'un-' as another prefix before the 'in-'. If the result is not a proper adjective or only makes sense as a double negative, we're dealing with cat 1; if it turns out to mean the opposite, it's odds-on cat 2.
English being one of the most illogical and irrational languages, the adjectival form of a cat 1 noun may already use the English 'un-'. Example: inability, but unable.
But uninhabitable points to cat 2 - not fit to live in

I haven't seen a single incident where a poster - ramp, pump, or dump - has put a gun to another's head and said, "Buy high or I'll pull the trigger." Likewise, when a share price falls down, there is nobody forcing holders to keep holding and ignoring Stop Loss execution.
Each and every buy and sell order was placed willingly, as was every sensible rule ignored.

Where were all these protesters, where were the boy's friends and relatives, when he stole another man's property? What if they had taught him right from wrong?

That is not specifically a newbie question.
I have been a member for almost a decade, and I haven't found a logical explanation for the number of reads and posts on CUV and SLA. However, at one time I looked at the posts in those two threads, and I noticed the same contrubutors posting exclusively in the two threads and nowhere else. They also have a habit of acknowledging even the most trivial one-liner of their mates with a "Thanks", yet contribute nothing to any other topic.

There is one other stock forum where scores of one-liners attract "Likes" for even the most idle gossip. On that particular forum, SLA and CUV aren't discussed very much at all. These observations make it pretty clear to me that your second question is most likely the right answer. smile.gif

If nothing else, this kind of "discussion" adds considerable traffic to ShareScene's forum. And traffic keeps a forum alive.
For that reason: thank you, CUV and SLA addicts tongue.gif

"The secret to living long is this: every morning, go and sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on your grits."

The grandson paid close attention and followed his advice religiously to the age of 103 when he died.

He left behind 14 children,30 grandchildren,45 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great-grandchildren
and a 15 foot crater where the crematorium used to be.

On TAW, I'm taking a very long-term view.
Check out the weekly chart with Fibs: Assuming that 18.5 proves Holding Support, a break above the recent High gives me a Phi target of 46c. But one needs to be patient.

"I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government underwent a peaceful transition of power a few short months ago ... At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while Donald Trump took his Oath of Office.

However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 soldiers, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President. It was then that I realized how far America's military had deteriorated.

Every one of them missed the bastard ..."

Chart reaction is even more interesting. Buying the breakout (yesterday, and topping up today) should pay.

Yesterday was ETO option expiry day. Writers usually push the affected stocks as close as possible to the "max pain" level.
That explains the shenanigans in yesterday's trading.
Today, the exercised Calls and Puts hit the market, which explains the early sell-off.

As a rule, I stay away from the big end of town around option expiry and focus on smaller stocks. I find it easier to read and react to their charts without having to consider where writers and buyers of options may sit on the OI spread.

As the Angolan wet season draws to a close, mining and screening should become easier and more productive again. The chart suggests buyers may share that view as prices consolidate and accumulation becomes evident. Check out the Bullish Divergence in MACD over the two matching Lows 20/04 and 5/05.

From a Broker report, I gleaned the following information:

In the first week of May, Patersons have only bought TLG (at avg 69.5c); Canaccord and Deutsche have been the biggest net buyers, even after considering their sales.
Of course, that report groups only by brokers, not which clients did the buying and selling. But it's interesting insofar as the big brokers aren't cheap and therefore more likely to have clients listening to their advice. Coincidentally, Commsec and CMC were the major net sellers.

Does it have to fill?
Yesterday, I would've said "quite likely". And took profit at the top. Today, I'm no longer sure.
At least for the foreseeable time, and until it proves me wrong, I'll treat this one as a break-away or continuation gap. And bought some back. Still strict speccie rules. 75c support must hold.

I don't think today's High (currently 91.5c) is "it" yet. 87c is still quite a margin below even the first Fibonacci extrapolation.

as far as I can tell, amaysim (AYS) haven't let me down in all the years I've used their mobile service.
My "landline" runs as VoIP over my ISP Vividwireless. I've been with them ever since iiNet took over AAPT - and kept losing my line. Initially, I signed up with Vivid by Hobson's choice: they were the only alternative left in our suburb. It didn't take me long to congratulate myself to the best choice I could have made ...

There have been a couple of brief dropouts in 8 or so years, and I can recall 3 occasions when I couldn't make Overseas calls. Each such disruption but one was fixed within minutes of me reporting it. (The exception took 2 days because it was a technical issue after work had been done on my nearest tower.)

Good Morning, Salts,
I won't touch A3D at this stage. While it's possible that Shorters have a field day, the chart suggests it's more serious.
Let's take the High last November seriously and have Fibonacci project a target. That would come out still some 40% below yesterday's Close. I personally wouldn't take such a risk when the likely recovery upside is limited to about half that.

It's had two huge candles this week: yesterday's closed on its High, so I held my position overnight.

... but extrapolated Fibs and previous s/r levels are only guidelines. Therefore, when the morning trades showed a reversal "in between", I adjusted my Plan and took profit.
Based on the 1-minute chart (with a momentum envelope drawn in) I anticipated a pullback from the impulsive High - wherever it occurred. Interestingly, today's pullback included a 1.3M Crossing at $2 even. Therefore, I haven't bought back yet because I now see a chance of a total pullback that might even close this morning's up-gap.

It appears the Market reacts - albeit delayed - to Monday's announcement.
Like most investors, I'm not a medico, so it's only natural to wait for the experts. Most likely, one of the tip sheets or Fin reviewers picked up on it and offered an opinion late yesterday. If so, ASX would waste their time soliciting nothing but a standard reply "We know nothing, but you should've read Monday's announcement."
