Re: OT: CBI

Okay, this CBI story is getting *really* interesting now.

Clearly, a serious (and possibly completely fraudulent) short attack has really gotten traction now --aided by the collapse in oil prices.

I can't help but wonder if it's [more]

Re: Volume?

Thanks, Jim.

And you're right, it wasn't in the least bit snarky; it was a straight and simple question. (Unfortunately, like most any utterance, it's open to radical misinterpretation by idiots.)

Re: Volume?

Seriously? I'd kind-of assumed that probably wasn't significant enough to be the cause.

Is entry into Singapore s big enough deal to draw so much attention?

Volume?

Does anyone have any thoughts about the huge BRK trading volume of the past couple days?

Re: Wow.

I don't know what the hell this is, but --after 6 years of waiting, since the last time BRK was reasonably priced-- I'm enjoying it.

A Little Historical Perspective:

I was cleaning up some old files yesterday, and came across a bookmarks-file from a browser I haven't used for some time.

Re: No sellers?
