the quote below is from one of
my favorite books
"Jesse Livermore" Worlds Greatest Stocktrader.


its on the second page in the preface



In 1923, seven men who had made it to the top of the financial success pyramid met together at the Edgewater Hotel in Chicago. Collectively, they controlled more wealth than the entire United States Treasury, and for years the media had held them up as examples of success.
Who were they?
Charles Schwab, president of the worlds largest steel company, Arthur Cutten, the greatest wheat speculator of his day, Richard Whitney, president of the new york stock exchange, Albert Fall , a member of the Presidents cabinet, Jesse Livermore , the greatest bear on wall street , Leon Fraser, president of the International bank of settlement, and Ivan Krugger, the head of the worlds largest monopoly.
What happened to them?
Schwab & Cutten both died broke ,Whitney spent years of his life in sing sing penitentiary, Fall also spent years in prison, Livermore,Fraser and Krugger committed suicide.

Donald McCullogh
Waking from the American Dream.


Rene Rivkin & Jesse livermore committed suicide
at almost the same age ;Livermore was 62 & Rene 61

ANZAC salute .....

..... and the ANZAC spirit lived on, reflected in this poem
from Outward Bound No 1 ... a journal printed on the
Queen Elizabeth on Anzac Day 1941, as the next wave of
Anzacs were being transported in a huge convoy,
from Australia to World War 2, in the Middle East:

ORDNANCE LAMENT

We are not really soldiers
We are only make believe
They gave us all a rifle
Our conscience to relieve
Our ship was built for pleasure
For folk of the idle class
We'll give them back their blinking ship
For just one shore leave pass.

- A77
Outward Bound No 1
AT SEA: ANZAC DAY April 25th, 1941.

-----

..... and after they had been fighting for 18 months,
the Anzac spirit was stiil going strong:

DOWN AT EL ALAMEIN

The lights on the desert so quiet and serene
The troops moving up in an endless stream
The barrage all set for 22:15

Down at El Alamein

The guns opened fire again and again
The object was gained by 4 am
The Afrika Corps will rest no more

Down at El Alamein

And when this War is a amemory
And gunners are gunmen no more
We will remember the desert for many a day
The Aussies, the Kiwis all in the fray.

Down at EL Alamein.

- Anonymous.

Above poems are excerpts from an airman's book,
"Through the Eyes of the Harasser", documenting
the activities and movements of the Aussie
450 Squadron ... "The Desert Harassers".

-----

A salute to the "simple men of simple faith, who
set out to fight for a Great Ideal."

happy days

yogi

Interesting food for thought !

australianIT.com.au article:

Forum poster sued for libel
Staff writers
MARCH 29, 2005

A LIBEL battle in London financial circles may have punctured the idea that posters to internet forums can remain anonymous.

Chief executive of finance group Collins Stewart Tullet Terry Smith won substantial damages from fund manager Jeremy Benjamin in the UK's high court after Mr Benjamin was found to have made false allegations against Mr Smith on the investment website the Motley Fool, Britain's The Guardian has reported.
Mr Benjamin posted the allegations under the moniker "analyser71", but was traced by lawyers representing Mr Smith, who used email and IP addresses to determine his identity.

A court order was used to force The Motley Fool to reveal details about "analyser 71", with the websites' owners having previously refused to provide the information, The Guardian report said.

Mr Benjamin's comments were seen by only 49 readers before they were taken down by the website, but the allegations made were extremely serious and may have been seen by influential people in financial circles, who may have passed them on to others, the court found.

The case is thought to be the first in which an anonymous internet poster has been successfully sued, The Guardian said.

hey all,

just looking at the asx site to confirm holiday / trading stuff.

- Thursday, Mar24 is an early close ... 14.05 (Sydney time).
- Friday, Mar25 market is closed.
- Monday, Mar28 market is closed.
- Tuesday, Mar29 ... not sure, ... it says TAS is open, but not specific about all States.

Is Tues a public holiday and closed market? When you work for yourself public holidays mean nothing ...

cheers
