Contest #2

First of all, I don't want to hear any sht (yet) about how "Turd blew that one". My recent attempt at predicting the future is in regards to gold, not silver, though I expect silver to come along for the ride. Gold is still well above $1800. IF it falls below 1800 and heads to 1700, I'll be the first to admit my error in judgment. Until then, my advice is to please refrain from the I-told-ya-sos and other smartypant remarks. Otherwise, you're going to end up looking like a jerk and you'll be laughed straight outta here.

Btw, here's an updated hourly gold chart. Still is being compressed by the main short-term trendline.

I had to make a judgment call on contest #1 and I've judged the winner to be "ragandbone".

Submitted by ragandbone on September 14, 2011 - 11:36am.
172 countries...
But not:
Chad
Eritrea
N Korea

The correct answer is 176 out of 196 and the three countries guessed are correct. The full list is:

North America (1): Greenland
Africa (13): Chad, Niger, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Gabon, Namibia, Somalia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Eritrea, Malawi
Asia (3): Turkmenistan, North Korea, Tajikistan
Oceania (1): Papua New Guinea
South America (2): Guyana, French Guiana

"Ragandbone", please email me your mailing address at tfmetalsreport[at]gmail[dot]com.


OK, onto contest #2. The top 5 countries that visit TFMR are: US, Canada, UK, Australia and Germany. For another, autographed yellow hat, name 3 of the countries that make up 6-10.

GO!

Seems that we are suffering another mini-raid

Seems that we are suffering another mini-raid to compress the price under the line.

Also I was looking at SVM earlier today, trading under $6, and a lot of volume, how long will it last? Don't own the stock, but sure it looks like a great point of entry right now.
