After a long day of boxing and shipping hats, I'm glad to finally sit down and bang out an update. Lots to talk about but not very much time. Let's get to it.
First and foremost, don't ya just love support that holds and holds and holds? $1705 gold is just that. The significance of that level goes all the way back to September. Here are some of the charts we've used in the time since:
And now here's today. Gold once again held 1705 as support and looks to go challenge 1740.
I found it interesting that, this time around, silver didn't challenge $31 at the same time. I printed off a chart and look what I found. It's not much but it's something:
OK. Next up, a procedural/content question. As the war drums beat louder, I've caught myself paying closer and closer attention to the headlines of the day. I've noticed that between my prowling and the readers, we seem to stumble upon notable headlines earlier than many other "news" sites, including at times ZH. Shall I change our format a little? Currently, I create new threads only once/twice per day and those threads become "Main Street". What if I were to always make my main, PM posts "sticky" and yellow at the top of the page and then use the space below to start discussions on each new, relevant/scary headline I see? Would that be too much comment/content dilution? Let me know what you think.
Speaking of headlines, here are just a few from today:
Next, have you noticed that the TurdMart is now open for business and just in time for all of your holiday gift-giving needs?! Seriously, though, I hope you like it. It's not a finished product but there are at least a couple of items there you might enjoy. The site only makes a 10% comp on each purchase so it's never going to be a big moneymaker. It's mainly there just for fun.
One last thing. By now, many of you have noticed the biblical "address" at the bottom of each page. I'm not trying to make a religious statement with it. It's simply something that has helped me through some challenging times in my life. Well I ran into a new one today and it seemed to fit perfectly with what we have created here. I won't quote it in this post because I think it would be more fun for you to discover it yourself. When you have a moment, look up Proverbs 11:14 and let me know if you think the wisdom of the verse is worth including on the homepage somewhere.
Have a great day. I look forward to getting your feedback in the comments section. TF
