Hi all

This forum would seem as appropriate as any for this remarkable photography at Obama's inauguration.

This is a photograph of the 2009 Obama Inauguration. You can see IN FOCUS the face of EACH individual in the crowd !!!

You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd. . . wait a few seconds. . double click anywhere . and the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up.

The picture was taken with a robotic 1474 megapixel camera (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera).

Everyone attending could be scanned after the event, should something have gone wrong during it.

The drop in posts is not surprising but great to see it quantified.

There are a lot fewer "gun traders" in a falling market than in a rising one. In fact, the number of posts from newly joined members i thought was a topping out signal (along with "GR33D" type number plates on Porsches smile.gif ..i think it was mentioned 12 months ago.

QUOTE (alonso @ Monday 18/08/08 10:37am)

Alonso-- A shrewd observation.

I dont know the actual statistics, but my own observations about the SS postings is that the BULK of them concern the speculative end of the market.

Hence, as the general market retracts, the speccies suffer the worst, etc etc.

Again without the stats, the mining speccies feature highly.

Having been through a few boom/busts in the commodity stocks, this time around my original brokers words ring in my ears.

" Whilst the biggest potential bang for your buck is in the prospectors, the safest area is THE PRODUCERS"---in that generally they won't go bust.

As credit has dried up, the speccies resort to mining their shareholders, not their ground, when the money runs out they simply shut up shop.

BTW: One of the great attributes of SS is that it encompasses all theories, FA TA, opinions, geo political influences, and is therefore still reasonably active.

Hi Alonso,

Red = Posts, Blue = ASX 200

As you can see there is a correlation (the big drop in December is due to people being away from the PC over Christmas/New Year)

Thankyou

Has anyone noticed, I mean I guess everyone has, a dropping off in the number of SS posts of late.
I put it down to the flight from the market and on the basis of absolutely no research whatever (my favourite modus operandi) I suggest there might be a direct correlation between market activity and posting.
Maybe this could be the basis of a new index - the SSP - by which we could keep track of market sentiment and periodically pull our hair out or get a transplant as the case might be ?
