Re: Elan (and others...) - Arezi Questions...

Then it seemed that there was little or no interest.

I think just about everyone(MIers) want to encourage you to stay active on the board.

Re: Current PE Ratio's of ETF's

This data looks odd. PE of IJJ is not 74.90.

Re: Bear Catchers Combined

90% of 42 equity ETFs hitting new highs within the last 3 months is completely consistent with a bullish BCC combined state.

I'm missing something if there's something unusual/unexpected about that?
