    Indeed that is funny, and if it wasn't for currency risk (and I don't follow currency), I'd probably go long on Apple too (being an apple fan boi, I want apple to continue its rise).

    I thought the prediction was going to be about the Australian market ! :(
    Is it tipping over... or is it just having a bit of a breather before taking off again? (Some new highs would be nice so I can at least raise my stop losses up a notch)

    Above article is another example, how "good" predictions are, no matter what market we are talking about.
    Actually weekly XJO developed almost symmetrical triangle pattern. Time will tell which way the market breaks (up or down).

    Number looks phenomenal always from any hands in the market.

    Profit looks always nearly zero for years and for nearly all of tech insane minds.

    What is the reasons tech fails to work? It is the question to upset the genius to put you into ignored list!

    If we could not protect anything else we have to protect our own feeling. It is last line to be a self-esteem man or woman!

    However no fail-safe is a one way road to the hell finanically in the market. The lines and patterns are too fragile to support the castle in air!

    ***
    In Casino you could meet some senior gamblers. They play there with some lines and techs, which let them excited. However don't worry their life since they know what they want and would get!

    They are wise enough to leave the money aside for necessities, no more and no less. The most important thing is they don't have any responsibilities for their kids anymore. And then they bet based on the guesses from the lines and patterns.

    It is not bad since it help to keep the capability to count the lines or patterns for a long time and keep the life happy.

    ***
    Australia is a fantastic place that if you want you could gamble in the stock with you loved tech.

    So it should be a trend that more and more experienced gamblers in the market do the similar things as those in Casino. It is a good way to reduce the brain aged at least.

    For a quite long time I do wonder why there are a lot of Chinese gamblers in Casino here but few in the stock market. Now I know they are limited by English! Before 2004 I gambled based on the line and pattern in the stock market while I thought I was a investor!

    No boundaries for gamblers!

    ***
    Tech is tech and business is business. Business needs the techs and should use the techs under the right time and place by the right people!

    Could you figure out the logic from this simple words? Could we turn the market as our last Univ and make the life more colorful with better mental framework and achievement in profit?

    Don't upset too much! Life is good and gambling or not are options only! Do what you want and get better and better for what you want!

    ***
    I do want to own a little Casino in the market for the gamblers! It should be my business!

    The problem is how to turn myself from a gambler in Casino to a owner of a Casino! So that I could trustfully predict some would be in and leave some money on the table! You play the lines and patterns on the card and I get the money on the table. A business makes everyone happy!

    Unfortunately I am not a owner of any Casino now.

    I swear if I could be a owner I would not upset you anymore since you could be my customers! It is insane to fight against your customers!

    Since AAPL is heading to new highs (and therefore no resistance levels), I'm actually thinking of signing up for comsecs international shares thingy, so that if I did have some spare cash (I don't I'm fully invested, bought into BRU today with the cash from ILU and a MND dividend) I could buy a handful of Apple shares.

    Now... what is the likely effect of the U.S. currency if I purchase Apple stock?

    If you could not help but peeling into my post, you would be completely understood and welcome.

    Don't worry and you would get what you want as anyone else intentionally or unintentionally. We just make or lose what we deserve to.

    I am just thinking about how to get my paper profit at the April 2011 back and lock it into my houses as reasonable and rational as possible so that I could be a full time market student again. I do feel the challenge not outside but inside me.

    It is not too much, just $180,000, to the winners. Unfortunately I am a poor who became poorer last year! It is worse that I am still not happy about my mental framework. This immature framework distracts me to act idiotically and insanely time by time.

    You make losses and you have to get the losses back through self- and environment-awareness. No any other way you could go if you don't want to stop losses everyday.

    Hope fortune with your adventure in American stock market.

    There is an IB platform www.interactivebrokers.com
    You can open an account using AUD and they will lend you USD for trading and this way there are no currency fluctuations.
    Cost is low (around $1 in and $1 out depends how big is your account).
    Cannot comment on commsec, but I heard that they charged around $20 in and $20 out which is a highway robbery :mad:
    Decrease your own cost at all time. Another rule of trading/investing !

    Thanks for the link Tropo, I'll check it out. For international trades Comsec wants to charge $65 per trade. :(

    Re BRU I noticed that in a scan of stocks over $2. Saw the dramatic recent trend, and noticed that there is no resistance on this stock. So far since the 20th, the stock is up 13% :)

    It can gap though... and anything that can gap up can and probably will gap down at some stage...

    " For international trades Comsec wants to charge $65 per trade."
    It's outrageous!!!!!

    "...and anything that can gap up can and probably will gap down at some stage..."
    Not necessarily so - but at some stage I would expect BRU (nice doggie:p ) to pull back.
