Got the following important Information from Comsec: Market prices not updating and no orders executed 27 Oct 2011 ... We will keep you informed of any updates as they happen. *** Do you wonder what happened in ASX. Is it a exercise for XAO to close its door collectively or a system tech hiccup? All of Aussie in market and finance have expected XAO down for quite long time. If everyone does expect the same thing, it would make something happen under some conditions. Sometimes the tings would move into their extreme and once the things are in their extreme they would change toward to the opposite direction sooner or later. We are told by the sages in the market: 1. You can not timing the exact rock bottom as you can not timing the exact peak. 2. You shouldn't buy or sell for the absolute rock bottoms and peaks. However it seems all of retail market players tend to go a little bit far. They tend to remove the "absolute" and "exact" from the statement above. Truth or false are decided by this trick word, "absolute" or "exact" in my view. What perceptions become popular implicitly in the retail market players? 1. You can not timing the market 2. You can not profit to pick up a rock bottom 3. All of bargain hunters would fail in the market. 4. It is more risky to buy in the rock bottom than at the peaks So traders said you have to exactly follow your system's signals; value boys said you have to buy and hold; all of retail players said no playing for bargains!; Sell if anything has priced at discount; Sell all if all are in discount. Few know the difference between failure of rock bottom or failure of picking up rock bottom. Someone told me I have not sense at all. I agreed with it in full. If I have any sense, I should sell at the peak and lock the profit before the inevitable crash or correction. Do wonder who have the senses in the market if we just twist the words and don't know the tiny gaps between the truth and false. *** Is no timing becoming the excuse not to think? Let's cry for darkness in the rock bottom with the Sun rising under the horizon and cheer for brightness in the grand parties with the sinking Sun. Let's take what system could give us. We are alive for system and are dead when the system crashes down to ground! Let's curse XAO due to ASX failed to pause its trade processing. Let's die in the hopeless darkness since EU, China, and US have nowhere to go except the hell! *** XAO hopeless or you?
