Getting Worn Out

Fri, Oct 7, 2011 - 9:39am

I'm glad we have this new site and I'm thrilled that so many are enjoying it and learning from it. This site is about and for you, not me. But frankly, I'm getting a little worn out.

Here are your charts. I'll be out the rest of the day at a fundraiser for an acquaintance who died from cancer last year at the age of 42. Have a great day. Live your life with joy. TF

Live your life with joy

Thanks TF. Words to live by.

Relax. Take some time off if you need to. Nobody expects 24/7 coverage.

Peace and Aloha to you and your family.

@DPH - AMEN! When trading

@DPH - AMEN! When trading like that shows up, you either have to think - Stop the rise! or HFT trigger. And it's also stuff like that which makes one stop posting for a while until you have even a reasonable thought about what's going on.

And right now, I don't have one, so I'll just keep quiet and read.

Guest Host

Hey Mr Ferguson,

If you're getting worn out maybe you can get a guest host in once in a while to make the daily blog post, to give you a little breathing room, let you take a little rest. I've seen a good handful of users here who could probably act as a quality guest host for a couple days without causing the place to fall over :)

I'd hate to see you get burnt out! Keep the faith!

Harmonic wealth

Wealth can be categorized as follows:

spiritual, physical (as in health), intellectual, relationships, and financial (acronym - SPIRF)

All of will be wise to continually assess our needs and manage our balances in all five.

Have a good day, fellow Turdites!

78.48 on Pigitha

Dec 11 quote.... breaking down. Losing this level looks like 78 is possible. That should be the impetus to send gold over $1665 and silver past $32.50.

The long bond would be approaching 140 as well. If it loses that level, then 137.50 is possible.

@$6Ag: yes, a break above 142.80 on the 30 year T-bill would be bad for anyone short.

@Keg: ...maybe someday we'll find a cure....

We probably all know too many people whom we've lost to cancer, and more who are struggling with it now. There is some progress: check out

and watch the movie Burzynski if you can find it, to get a feel for how corruption in the FDA and Big Pharma have contributed to the toll.

Sounds like you just chastised TF for whatever reason.

Dude's hurting today and you have a problem with what....? That wasn't necessary right then was it?

Or was that the intent? To spur a response and stir the hive up. Thanks for your "advice".

Step back and take a breath everybody

Hiya Turd,

I've been posting a few times, mostly about the psychology in the gold/silverbug community because I'm pretty clueless about charts. ;-)

Long term I agree that the present Ponzi scheme can't continue, but it seems to me that waaaay too many gold&silverbugs are getting waaaaay too caught up in this whole worldwide conspiracy against PM's etc.

Everybody is expecting this whole thing to collapse any minute with gold zooming to $10000,- and silver north of $100,-

Well, it doesn't and it won't... Even houses of cards have some stability, you know.

Have some patience, you're excellent with charts and you have some very valuable insights and in the long term I'm totally on your side, BUT PLEASE GIVE THESE CONSPIRACIES SOME REST TURD!

Everybody has their vested interests, including us gold&silverbugs! When prices go down some complain about raids and EE's, when prices go up perhaps the C/C/C and EE complain about us nutcases buying PM's.

The truth, as always, is probably somewhere in the middle, and even if it's not in the middle, the truth will some day come out...

Have some faith in the long term, stop starring at computer screens trying to push/levitate prices higher by telepathy and hopium.

I really enjoy reading this site and your comments/insights, although personally I'm getting a bit worn out by idiots pasting YouTube videos, totally unrelated nonsense and posting "first" while hat tipping themselves for it.

Market orders never never!

To the new investors, never buy using a market order, always place a limit order! If You really want to hit a fast moving target ie. chase a bid place a good lead limit bid on the ask. ie 10 cents above the ask. Never enter a market order, ever! You can get scalped big time paying 2.50 for a .43 cent call! I witnessed some poor sap paying 300% over the bid ask today! A very unhappy camper I'm sure! A ripper of a weekend to all ;) fogg

THE Reason for Gold & Silver decline!

It's because I've been watching it consistently every 5 minutes. When I turn off the computer and stop looking for a long period of time then come back, it's always higher. Never fails! And, there ya have it....
