When checked yesterday at 7:30pm EST the blue line had ever so slightly crossed the red, yet when I look now it appears as if they had never even come close. Are these charts affected and updated on a delayed basis by after-hours trading? This is not [more]

Re: 99 Day Rule

Anyone going to actually act on this signal?

Yes, but not immediately. When the 99 day high finally moves downward, it is time to start watching a lagged trailing moving average signal.

Re: Best Gold Trust: PHYS, OUNZ, or GLD?

I have owned CEF in the past. Its vaults have independent auditors, and the bullion is really there and not loaned, doubly owned, or any other shenanigans.

The Central Fund of Canada (which holds both gold and silver bullion) is considered a [more]

GTR1 and Yahoo again?

This link had been working just fine until this week.
Yes, the screener would time out, but then I would back click and run it again and my results would be there.
Now I get an error message and cannot get any results.

Re: Medicare 'observational' status

Tim,

When you are not in a position to refuse Medicaid and Medicare, which barely pay enough to keep the lights on, you cannot compete with hospitals that can. Only negotiated prices with private insurance providers based upon a [more]

I think it's a Turin Test. I'll speculate MrCherryO is a machine.

Trading GDX

Like many here, I think it is matter of time before this sector gets a big run.
In the meantime, look at a 2 year chart of GDX: it is on a cycle of dropping <21 and peaking >24. I'm in for my second round right now, buying at ~21 [more]
