This is getting out of control. I am spending entirely too much time deleting avatars and posts. If it is not suitable for reading by your 11 year old child or grandchild, please do not post it.
Repeat offenders will have their posting priveleges suspended.
Good morning, everyone, from the Night Visitor (hopefully only through tomorrow). What I just quoted is so important that it not only deserves to be repeated from Friday but done so on the front page of the opening commentary for the week.
I have commented a number of times prior that what we all have here is something quite unique and special not only in terms of the technical information available but also the emotional support it provides in an environment that continues to be difficult for almost everyone.
We must not take what we have here for granted or else we might eventually find ourselves without it. There are certain pitfalls and dangers inherent in a community of our nature. One of them, which I've spoken about before, is the business of letting our personal egos get out of hand to the point where other members are offended and upset.
Another one is that which Doc spoke about last Friday afternoon. He shouldn't have to be spending his time deleting posts and avatars; he has more than enough things to do in terms of running this place as well as doing his technical work to keep him occupied without having to be concerned about this as well. Which leaves it up to all of us to conduct ourselves at all times in ways appropriate to this message board.
Because, if we don't, and things get out of hand to the point where enough people get upset and decide to leave, that could very well be the beginning of the end of our community. Trust me on this. What we have is precious but what we have is also fragile. To repeat what I just said, please do not take all of this for granted. It has taken almost two years under Doc's leadership to evolve and grow to this point, but would take a lot less time to self-destruct or at least be seriously damaged if we do the wrong things here.
So please follow his rules regarding this subject and if you have any doubts about the propriety of something you're about to post it would probably be better not to post it.
And Doc, I'd like to suggest that you take the Bad Behavior notice you had posted in the previous message board and update and repost it here at the head of the main menu, perhaps with a title along the lines of Appropriate Message Board Behavior or Posting Rules And Guidelines.
With that said, please continue to keep Doc's Dad in your prayers. He still needs your support and every last one of them helps the cause.
I hope the day is good to all of us. I'll be back in town after sunset and you'll next hear from me early tomorrow morning. Though I won't be with you in person today, I'll certainly be with you in spirit.
gold was at 356.85, now at 355.25, some say 358 should be a top, we will see.
Futures did go up a bit this morning, but finally they couldnt hold it after it broke thru 912.50 and they sold it of, right now S&P future at 905, could be a play of big DAX institutional traders, fridays high was 3123, as it was reached they pumped the futures to suck those break out traders in, at 3143 they reversed the whole thing, DAX right now at 3048
Dollar again with a punch in his face, euro just 20 pips away from making a new multi year high.
And who was right about this? Yes, Doc was it! Congrats!
If we see today the result of the 14b drain from friday, then L.O.B., but gut feeling says trading day isnt over, could become quite tricky today.
Good Morning! Tanks Glad! Unfortunately, we have no choice but to remind a few folks individually from time to time, which I had already done. I think the message got through.
The vast majority of stoolies have shown nothing but exemplary behavior, and even those who strayed should not need constant reminders. If the moderators do their jobs, everyone else need not give this a second thought. That's what we have moderators for, and that's why I sent a note to them privately. I don't want the overwhelming majority, who are great contributors and good stoolizens, to be the least bit bothered.
It's up to us to take care of it. So the rest of you need not give it a second thought. I would only ask that if you do see something that you feel is patently, obscene, pronographic or offensive, use the notify moderator button at the bottom right corner of the post. This will enable us to take carer of any problems on a timely basis.

Upgrade of the Semi Equipment group???? My god, does it ever stop??
Suggested reading: " Devil take the hindmost" A great book about speculative manias dating back to the Dutch Tulip mania of the 1500's.... its uncanny how history continually repeats itself in the markets, no matter the century or location of the events...
1055-1071 remain my cited NDX levels to watch for reversal and top of wave 2 (of 3 of 3 of 3)...

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny
Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

Anthony caused pearls to be dissolved in wine to drink the health of Cleopatra; Sir Richard Whittington was as foolishly magnificent in an entertainment to King Henry V; and Sir Thomas Gresham drank a diamond, dissolved in wine, to the health of Queen Elizabeth, when she opened the Royal Exchange; but the breakfast of this roguish Dutchman was as splendid as either. He had an advantage, too, over his wasteful predecessors: their gems did not improve the taste or the wholesomeness of their wine, while his tulip was quite delicious with his red herring.here
