  1. Betcha Potatohead is not getting a lot of sleep .. 😉
  2. I'm thinking the latter. My town does gold mining in a big way. "Sold" signs on a whole lotta real estate, loads of tradies with unfamiliar logos on their vehicles, boom just starting imo ...
  3. Blowout in coronavirus numbers in state of Victoria .. 723 .. aged care inmates dying like flies .. masks mandatory throughout state from tonight. Next state north, New South Wales starting to crank up on numbers and further north, Queensland just found a couple of infected teens from Victoria roaming at large in the community. Still ok here in the west .. no community spread although Australia's equivalent of Donald Trump reckons Western Australia should open the borders and has taken it to court ..
  4. No fear so far .. once that hits Trump is history. So unfortunately will be a lot of others.
  5. Coronavirus has broken out once again here in Oz with the the state of Victoria under siege. It started with a hotel containing quarantinees supposedly being guarded by security personnel but it turns out the latter were casual recruits, untrained and paid low cash-in-hand rates. Not only did they share food and a car pool among themselves but rumour has it, their bodies, with those under quarantine. Sounds like party time .. Most of Melbourne went back into lockdown but unfortunately many people headed for the NSW border before that snapped shut. Truckies reported convoys of campervans and caravans heading north to warmer climes. NSW is now showing signs of infection and not only that but they have just opened their border to QLD so the whole east coast could become raging pandemia. Still ok over here in the west, no community transmission. There's travellers returning from overseas but they are in strict quarantine from arrival.
  6. Ah, back in the days when kids were kids and Mama made your clothes ...
  7. Taken at Bluff Knoll, south west Western Australia mid June, very soothing 👣
  8. An outbreak in Victoria just as we're getting complacent ... Thursday was the ninth consecutive day Victoria has recorded a double-digit increase in the number of coronavirus cases, while some other states have gone weeks without a new infection. About 1,000 Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel have been called in to help with the response, with a focus on the state's hotel quarantine program. The Premier said ADF personnel would also help with transporting people from the airport to hotel quarantine and transporting tests to other capital cities for processing. The contact and tracing team will also be boosted to about 1,350 people. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-25/victoria-records-33-new-coronavirus-infections-testing-hotspots/12390870
  9. Agree fx .. on the charts tonight I have buy signals across the board: tech stocks, platinum and gold stocks, biotechs, you name it ..
  10. Lucky here in Western Australia: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-23/wa-coronavirus-landlords-rental-relief-package-announced/12176888
  11. There's a note for Texas on the Worldometers site: Texas: "The reported cases for June 16 include 2,622 new cases and 1,476 cases that were previously diagnosed among Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmates but that had not been reported by local health departments (887 from Anderson County and 589 from Brazoria County)."
  12. Here we go: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-12/first-time-share-investors-take-a-punt-on-coronavirus-recovery/12344008
  13. Another totally crazy day with All Ords closing +3.9%. This stock I bought almost 3 weeks ago @ .028 looking for a 10-20% profit. Sold today for +75%. I read somewhere recently that a whole lotta people without jobs are jumping into daytrading.
  14. I think that could be a technical thing. You watch what happens when one country has a holiday. Say it's India: it will do what it would have normally done on that day once it opens again. So people will say something like "hey why is India going down today when every other market rose?" I disagree re global concerted action. I'm a technician. 😛
  15. Not just Nikkei but Hong Kong and China. Asia has been leading the markets for a long time now. I can remember back in the Nasdaq bubble days it was all about what the US did but of course China has become a major player since then and markets have adjusted accordingly.
  16. Some crazy stuff happening .. this stock gained 300% at the peak today. Yesterday's close was 0.083c and it opened at 0.41c which is the price I paid a couple of years ago. I bailed at 0.39c before ASX put it into a temporary trading halt. It's a biotech which has apparently has some good results for an e-coli treatment.
  17. Life is slowly returning to normal here. Businesses are reopening, leisure centre is up and running (yay). The only covid cases we're getting in Western Australia are those people returning from overseas and they go into immediate hotel quarantine. We've run out of contaminated cruise ships but there was recently a livestock carrier with a stricken crew from the middle east. State borders are still closed and will remain that way for some time I suspect.
  18. Agree but not thinking long term investment, just a short term trade ..
  19. Exploration juniors have had a good run so looking further afield. These 2 look pretty good ..
  20. Some very toppy looking charts in the speculative sector after today's action. I'm expecting a downdraft starting tomorrow ..
  21. I think Trump is slowly being recognised for the narcissistic coward he is but he's also a bully and it just depends whether the American people will let themselves be dictated to. I suspect they can only be pushed so far...
  22. I just hate the way he blames everyone else. And how about hiding behind the bible? I'm not a religious person but I have to admire this bishop: Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington said that she is "outraged" after President Donald Trump visited her church without advance notice to share "a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus." I just want the world to know, that we in the diocese of Washington, following Jesus and his way of love ... we distance ourselves from the incendiary language of this President. We follow someone who lived a life of nonviolence and sacrificial love." "We align ourselves with those seeking justice for the death of George Floyd and countless others," she continued. https://www.9news.com.au/world/donald-trump-criticised-by-bishop-of-washington-church-after-protesters-teargassed/f923de99-b7c9-4e73-95d8-adce3fec8955
  23. Hey speak for yourself! I'm working on living to 100 with quality all the way .. 🤩
