Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Skin Trade - Wide Range Intraday in Prices


"No one today likes truth: utility and self interest have long ago been substituted for truth.  We live in a nightmare of falsehoods, and there are few who are sufficiently awake and aware to see things as they are.  Our first duty is to clear away illusions and recover a sense of reality.  To recover a sense of reality is to recover the truth about ourselves and the world in which we live, and thereby to gain the power of keeping this world from falling apart."

Nikolai Alexandrovich Berdyaev 


"It is precisely this — high-powered computers and the swagger of those who operate them — that is causing worries over high-frequency trading’s increasing sway.

Landon Thomas, Inquiry Stokes Concern over Trading Firms that Shape Markets, 3 September 2009 


“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

Gore Vidal


They were running the stops in the metals and big cap tech today.

There were some wide ranges in prices.

The better to skin the small specs out of their positions.

Kind of reminds one of end of month action. 

Get right.   Sit tight.

And stop listening to fools and shills for the moneyed interests spouting nonsense. 

Have a pleasant evening.
