    MKT down, VOL Down, folks NOT dumping?

    ...Average trade size is normally over 1k during
    the first 10 minutes of the day, then gradually
    decreases. Today it was under 600 at 9:37. Which means that
    any "dumping" is being done by small-timers. Sell
    orders on the Island (link below) normally outnumber buy
    orders 2:1. At this moment, they're about equal. Looks
    like the stock should be headed back up
    soon.

    The Island, by the way, is free and you don't have to
    sign up.

      Welcome back!
      Next buy signal on AMZN is
      @69.
      After that 71, where I do expect some resistance unless
      their is massive short covering above the 71
      area.
      You are right, in that there are no big boys selling
      here.
      If the DOT index gets some legs today, we'll see a
      rally in AMZN.

      Good Luck Jim,

      house

        During an estate sale from September 17 to
        19, Hart Galleries in Houston, Texas, will auction an
        original surviving luncheon menu from the RMS Titanic. A
        Houston-area man bought a painting of Titanic near
        Southampton, England, 28 years ago for $40 to $50. The
        painting just happened to have the menu attached to the
        back and was forgotten by the owner while it was kept
        in a closet until the movie Titanic renewed his
        interest. While the painting proved valueless, the menu is
        estimated at $75,000 to $125,000 and was featured on PBS'
        Antiques Roadshow. This item is one of many that will be
        auctioned during a three-day estate auction beginning 4:30
        p.m. PST on September 17 and 10 a.m. PST on the 18th
        and 19th. The Titanic menu will be featured on
        Sunday, September 19.

        T.W. Conroy & Associates in
        Baldwinsville, New York, will present a two-session estate
        auction September 24 to 25. Among the many rare and
        valuable items featured is a pair of lamps removed from
        the Titanic just before she sailed. The lamps were
        installed by electrician Roland Madisson, and were found to
        be nonfunctioning during a test of the lighting
        system. They were removed just before the Titanic's
        fateful voyage. This event begins at 3:30 p.m. PST on the
        24th and 10 a.m. PST on the 25th. The Titanic lamps,
        valued at $75,000, will be featured on Saturday,
        September 25.

        On October 20 at 5 p.m. PST, Profiles
        in History of Beverly Hills, California, will
        auction a letter on Titanic stationery, hand-written by
        Father Byles, the legendary figure that led prayers as
        the ship sank. This heroic priest was en route to
        officiate at his brother's wedding in New York. By some
        accounts, Father Byles was offered a seat on a lifeboat but
        refused. Instead, he guided passengers to the lifeboats
        and provided solace to those who went down with the
        ship. Addressed to his housekeeper and mailed just
        before the ship sank, the letter describes the ship in
        all of its glory. Valued in excess of $100,000, the
        letter will be auctioned during the company's first
        historic document sale.

        Using LiveBid, Internet
        participants can bid in real time with auction attendees via a
        live Web cast. Interested Internet bidders can easily
        pre-register at http://amazon.livebid.com by clicking to the
        three separate auctions. The deadlines for Internet
        registration for each auction is 5 p.m. local time the day
        prior to each event. A complete catalogue of auction
        items is available on the site.

        ``Everyone knows
        the legend of the Titanic, but rarely do people have
        the chance to own a piece of this kind of history,''
        said Matt Williams, director of live auctions,
        Amazon.com Auctions. ``We are honored to make these highly
        desired one-of-a-kind items available to our customers on
        the Internet.''
