    bought some EWU

    I bought 200 shares last month. My timing wasn't the best but I bought as a buy and hold with the hope that the UK would raise interest rates and Europe get itself back on its feet by mid next year....and of course collect an attractive dividend along the way. I still feel relatively optimistic even though things seem to be not going in the direction I expected. I'm wondering if I should double up on my shares should the price drop closer to $18.

    With things this volatile and who knows what they'll be like after 2PM and 1 nanosecond today...what's the entry price? $68 and change or is $65 coming or something even closer to $60?

    I guess that all depends on whether there is good reason for all the selling. I've bought into a few European equities and UK etfs including SAN in the hope that next year Europe will get back on its feet and until then collect what are currently rather nice dividends. What's your feeling about Banco Santander? I think the new CEO has that extra incentive to succeed given who her father was. I just don't know if that's enough to counter the current headwinds. Any thoughts.

    It takes TWO to be Manipulated

    The frightening part is that everything seems to be manipulate. From the largest Vanguard funds to Fortune 25 where do you hide and what do you do....other then to try and ride the coattails of the criminal elite and make your 2 cents along the way.

    Uncharted Territory

    I tend to disagree. I bought the stock after listening to the CEO's last conference call. I don't think he's in unchartered waters at all. To me it was a Warren Buffet moment. I like the CEO, I think he has a good grasp on things and I believe he knows how to deliver. As another poster mentioned and I totally agree, this stock like virtually everything else out there is a small cog in totally rigged market and its just about your sense of where the real thugs want to take the share price and knowing how to use that to your advantage.

    rate of decline

    Do you really see it that way? It seems like the media is just screaming oversupply, bulging inventories, lack of demand etc. And all that while Libya and Iraq are in total chaos due to the never ending failures and miscalculations of US foreign policy. It seems to me that it would take ISIS overrunning Saudi Arabia in the middle of the night to create a real oil price shock. And in fact they seem to be pretty good oil salesmen themselves so maybe even that wouldn't matter.

    Light Oil Glut Continues

    I'm just curious. With a monthly dividend that exceeds 6% by what is acknowledged to be a well run company....why sell and take a loss.

    You seem like a pretty smart guy when it comes to oil but I'm not so sure about your politics. I look at it as one snake two heads. Both the DNC and RNC take corporate bribes from the same people, both parties have plundered this country, both parties have now lost three wars (Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam) and both parties are totally corrupt and incompetent. The label Democrat or Republican is meaningless, they are both money laundering front organizations for same people and god only knows why we can't even get close to figuring out who THEY are. Robert Anton Wilson Jr. once said "if you can see's not THEM" and George Harrison of all people commented that whoever you vote for....the government always seems to get in. Do we live in an Orwellian Police State managed by a totally lawless and corrupt phony government absolutely yes. But really...if you think John Boehner, ignorant drunk, addict and corrupt #$%$ he is is any better then the delusion and totally corrupt Nancy Pelosi I'd have to disagree. The only answer in my mind....arrest the entire US government.
