Even at what I was good at in baseball was hardly enough. On the ABV% Ok, nice to step up on those #'s and its even nicer that you did real well with dinner. I'm not an IPA guy but I do enjoy the others and in many times, these 12-16%ers are realy nice. Its a beautiful thing.
If I wasn't a member......HELL NO I would have never gotten in this thing. It was pure luck that they (CBOT) demutualized after seeing how the merc did. While I owe them alot for all that, really, I don't owe them anything. Thank you for your kind offer. You know how it goes, got to stay within your means...Thats what my Mom taught me....she is a smart lady although worthless when it comes to money management. She got killed by our government with bad policy and zero interest rates. Thats the gratitude much of that generation got. What they got was the middle finger. And you, I sure hope you are doing well and getting better each day. Also hope your doggies are doing well too.
I agree with you on CME it just lets you know who's boss and dolders out frustration quite a bit, but on well, it is about making money for sure. GOOG may suffer to go higher if the market continues to do what its doing however GOOG is already given back 10% so downside is limited given where the RSI stands now. If you could scratch out some 685's I would certainly do that. I am not looking at small charts now so I don't know what those are saying. GLD, been a tough 4 years on the upside with it. It does appear however that higher prices start to get it pretty overbought would be all I see wrong with it. Looks like that market is saying that rates will never go up.....they might be right as ridiculous as that seems. Thanks for your kindness Poles..
Poles, you could have seen it a mile away......this thing was bee lining it for a 3 box reversal and a wack to the 200 day moving average (bad chart) and thats what we got. Its a very rigged stacked deck here at CME. Always has been.
The slime that said it should be at $200.00 yet he'd sell his Mother's soul and BAIL OUT at under 100. AAPL shareholder's will be much better off without that farce in it.
Thanks, could use some luck. That low pole reversal came out last week. I can't hold much faith in the small chart giving a buy signal now however. The .50X1.50 to me looks like it really needs to give back some as its up 11 boxes from the low and is in the area that we broke down. The 1X3 with a 95 print just gets it to bump up against the downtrend line. If its going to give a buy signal by going straight up it needs a 98 print which sure isn't gonna happen. My guess is that no matter what the report is will be that they play games and take it down some which may not be that bad because it will then give the opportunity to give new buy signals at lower prices. We'll see.
That div raise won't do squat and buybacks are worse. Don't know what they need to do. Its tough coming up with new products thats for sure. Give it up in margins and any growth slowdown and it spells trouble.
In hockey losing by a goal is a blow out. Thing was, it was being played in St. Louis and for the Hawks to win 3 in a row was a tall order. Coming off a Stanley Cup year, they are just worn out plus the team wasn't as good because of the cap issues. They'll be back next year. And hey they did a good job as it was.
Contrary to what Zhacks said, CME has beaten estimates by 3% or better the last 4 quarters. Should that repeat itself we just might beat estimates again by .04. From what I just looked at on yahoo, analysts over the past 3 months have increased EPS from 1.03 to where it stands now at 1.15 so maybe they have the number reigned in pretty well. Can't you just see sell the good news coming as I say with that sense of cynicism. CME has rallied back pretty well going into the number which has been good. I will tell you what has bothered me for a good year now is that analysts have not upgraded their price targets which stands at 100. Given that we have had such a good quarter you'd think that the targets would have been raised. Maybe a good quarter here might bring that about. In the meantime Fed (waste of time) announcement due out tomorrow and who knows, come Thursday morning maybe the market will be down 150-200 and take away the wind from our sails. We'll see.
Yeah but you had action. I bet you couldn't even watch the game unless you had some action. Still not sure why you took the Hawks however.
Funny, funny how? Do I amuse you, what the F is so funny,........you make me laugh.....But, you yeah, that was good, even for me.....BIG evening to you and a GREAT WEEK AHEAD.......
Our biggest fear is getting an envelope from the IRS and you got one. Awful. You run a clean ship and still they look at you with a fine tooth comb only to be proven wrong when its all said and done. Guilty before being found innocent is their motto. You need to owe them millions and then you can stay away from them. Good luck with that. Think maybe to have your accountant deal with it? Now for GOOG and earnings reports. Over the years I have owned things through the good and the bad on those and am used to what comes with the territory since they are so unpredictable. As long as the fundamental outlook stays in tact, I stay with it. Basically have owned GOOG from 500 to now at 718. Giving back profits is never good but it is house money. GOOG may just need to work down the RSI and the stochastics before it turns an has a rally but with the 3 month chart looking so oversold a rally is possible now before maybe resuming lower prices. The weekly chart didn't suffer much damage...at least yet. Now there is an upside gap that will need to be filled on the daily that is. Your Son needs to find his comfort zone on things. One thing is clear he, or anyone, can't trade stocks like they do commodities. Just too many dissimilarities between the two. Bring on CME's earning report.
