    Houston ... we may have a problem...:eek:

    Currently DOW is down 408 points.
    Have a nice weekend :p

    Edit:The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell the most since February, while the FTSE 100's biggest drop in four years led declines across Europe. Benchmark stock indexes in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey and Sweden sank more than 3 percent.
    Currently DOW = - 361

    "Housing market fears"

    I'm glad the whole Rinker thing is finished. I'd hate to see how the share price would have stood up to this.

    Now, if the Mexicans would just send me the rest of my money I'd be happy.

    Time to buy!

    I've got some more cash waiting to buy additonal Navra units, and now seems a good time. Does anyone know what days unit price you get if you wander in off the street with your form and a cheque? Do you get yesterdays close price, today's close or something different.

    Yep,

    I agree. Its a big correction and one based on concerns in the US around credit squeeze as a flow on from the failures in the sub prime mortgage market. Lets just hope that credit squeeze doesn't eventuate and result in profit downgrades in the US across the board. If that happens then the global economy will suffer to the same extent.

    I think the credit squeeze argument is over-cooked, but maybe that's just the bull in me coming to the fore.

    Tropo, what's your support levels on a long term channel?

    Cheers,
    Michael.

    We are still well in the range (weekly chart).
    I did not run my numbers as yet (I see supp.around 5861 + -) but as long as XJO is above 6000 not to worry.

    Hehehe, thanks Tropo, you started my day with a giggle. :D

    Yesterday ended $5k down, and today another $13.8k. Still plenty of profit in the portfolio yet. Nothing really turned my head in terms of wanting to buy in though. At 3.50pm I bought a few PPT shares which actually showed a small profit on closing.

    I must remember bank interest comes out next Tuesday and it will be 32 days interest this time. I don't want anything overdrawing, those fees are nasty.:eek:

    Whats a stop! :p

    Went shopping today, came home with some more MCR and got some RIO, as well as a punt on a speccy miner :eek:

    Worst thing about these sort of pull backs happening on a Thursday (US time) is that we have to wait to Monday to react to their Friday. :rolleyes:

    Good luck to all those invested in the market! Roll with the punches. :)

    Hopefully the Navra fund will be putting some of that cash to good use.

    PPT is a good buy Brenda. I've been holding it for about four and a half years. With all the money pouring into funds they should go ahead well.

    I tried them once, didn't work for me. I like it when everyone else uses them though because as their stops get hit it gives me an opportunity to buy. :p

    Geez I hope this doesn't start a stop loss argument, because that would be a dead loss. :D
