this is catch-up, imho -- they were mildly positive in the last session, as was the Dow.

However, things could be snowballing.

I wonder what sorts of thoughts are going through Timothy Geithner's mind -- wait, no I'm not.

This Yahoo! Fincancial chart will update every time you refresh this page. It will also reflect the current day, so if you're reading this thread and it's not August 5th, 2011 (in Japan), then this chart won't match the discussion because you're looking at your current day's NIKKEI chart.

It’s going to be another bloodbath tomorrow.
Jobs report comes out tomorrow. It’s not going to be pretty.
I got out several years ago.

Singapore and Malaysia are slightly up. The others are crashing.

The bigger problem is that, at our current point of moral degradation, an American Spring would be dominated by the Left who feels redistribution is going too slow.

The left can try, but I think they would meet more opposition than they realize.

I'd like to see it brought to a head and get it over with once and for all. Plus, it would be great to have them start it. jmo

“I got out several years ago.”

So did we. Paid off the small loan we took out on the house, bought gold & silver and bought a new truck for cash, not a check, CASH.

We are debt free and it feels good.

I’m right with you but I bought guns and ammo instead of gold and silver.

I’m sorry, I just don’t understand why you insist on giving delayed quotes.

Insist. I don't insist anything.

If they're late they're still better than the ones you post...I can't seem to find ANY that you've posted...what's with that?

If you have better quotes than me...postem!

It won't hurt my feeling a bit.

I did that 10 years ago. Some of the stainless steel items sell for twice as much now.

Timmy Geithner and the rest of his crowd are only interested in one thing - themselves.

Why don't you just post them?

Why are you giving me the link?

You seem like a nice person but you don't need to be talking to me in such a bossy tone.
I'm just to damn old to be bossed.

Post them yourself or run along now...quit messing with me.

Didn’t want to mention how much $$ went for other ‘items’.

Blam I wasn’t trying to be bossy or mess with you. The link is for real time overseas quotes. Sorry if I offended you but I trade for a living and delayed quotes are like reading yesterdays newspaper.

Well to be fair, Asia always follows the US. They have to sell off their market to get it in line with ours.

My advice.

Don't use info and advice off Free Republic to make trades.

Whether the market is up or down (no technicals) is about all anyone should be looking for at FR, IMO..

I haven't analyzed my holdings in a while. In 1999, it was "normal" for me to reload 1200 rounds each week. My wife and I would shoot 400 rds each during the week. Since moving to Idaho, the weather and work schedule have left little opportunity. I've been been stuck working a contract in San Diego since June 21, 2009. Almost no time home since then. It's getting real old.
