  1. yep that is what I see.... a sea horse!!! lol
  2. what do you guys think of facebook 8%+ dip on the add boycott. Temporary or will it pop back up quickly. They have already made some moves to curtail hate speech but is it enough? Same with Twitter to some extent but that has been selling off for a few days already.
  3. It looks like the stock traders are in full force now on this thread. Is anyone interested in splitting off a new thread for "Trading the Stock Market" so investors dont have to wade through the daily posts and updates on a stocks price movement? Or is everyone happy with the way things are? (I would add a poll but dont know how) Appreciate anyone's input. (investors or traders or both) Personally I am looking to start some day trading a few hours before work and am in the research stage and will move to paper trading soon. I think a separate thread would be beneficial for ideas, research, strategies, rips etc that focus on technical analysis.
  4. Has anyone read this book? Its a good read. My dad owned it and I read it twice. A #1 bestseller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice.Pulitzer Prize–winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the eighties’ biggest names on Wall Street—Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine —created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America’s most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice.
  5. Nuckin Futz Sorry for the late response. This has to be one of the best replies I have ever seen on CDC Thanks for the information. I have been digesting some of it and have started watching some youtube videos on the subject. Its a whole new area I never knew much about. Thanks!
  6. Cool I was just reading how hydrogen will be the future and not electric. They just need to get the cost down of producing hydrogen through electrolysis using renewable energy rather than converting natural gas which is cheaper now. they figure 10 years.
  7. I know insurance companies are driving up premiums... because they are losing money on the investment side due to low interest rates and on the claim side due to the high number of claims that may or may not be caused by climate change such as increased flooding, hurricanes, Forest Fires etc. I thought of picking up an insurance company down the road a s a hedge against inflation and rising rates. If interest rates climb they will start making more money on the investment side. Is this a thing or am I wrong?
  8. Im likely to never be a day trader but I am curious about it. Would you care to explain why you stopped (no worries if you dont)? what does it take to be a day trader? Any online resources or books you recommend?
  9. Should be the Skate logo instead of the Orca
  10. Hunters on Amazon Part Schindlers list, part Inglorious Basterds, part Oceans Eleven, part comic book hero, add in some seventies vibes Hard hitting scenes of holocaust, mixed with over the top violence, mixed with some camp If the first scene puts you off then you should pass on the rest. The second scene is a discussion on Darth Vader.... enough said Some great acting and some of the most vile characters I have ever seen, Including the Secretary of State and the American Nazi psychopath.
  11. Island cases going up now to 111. Right after Long weekend. Coincidence? .... maybe May long weekend we should shut ferries down to non-essential travel. I know Easter long weekend travel via ferries was very low despite news reports and social media saying otherwise. 15,000 people only which I think was 90% of normal but still those all cant be essential trips. Geographically we have an opportunity to shut Covid down on the island and start reopening the economy. One of the steps would be shutting down the ferries to all but essential services. Even if it is just an experiment it would be worth trying.
  12. What's next storage in rail cars? If it's not already done?
  13. Does anyone have insight into the renewable energies sector? What about TransAlta (RNW). Has rebounded off its lows however Dividend is around 6%.
  14. I see a few posts on people using TFSA accounts for day trading/short term trades. Makes sense however if you are not into day trading but rather long term investing what are the best strategies in your opinion. Dividends, Growth?? I was thinking of investing in dividend stocks in my TFSA for some tax free income in the future.
  15. Obviously it wasnt the only problem but it was the first problem and sharing a border with China they decided to shut it down early. There is a reason why their outbreak is delayed. Unfortunately many other mistakes were made (like all countries) and now it looks like they are going to be in real trouble like USA and Italy.
  16. I have been thinking if I could volunteer and deliver groceries. Kind of like our boy Podkolzin
  17. Too bad really because they closed the border to China early so they really had a jump start on everyone on containing the spread.
  18. Simple really. One person can wait outside the store and help carry the groceries home. A shopping cart inside the store will suffice for one person to get everything needed. A grocery list will make sure that the one person inside the store does not miss anything. Shopping alone is a recommendation from health officials and I've watched video from store managers pleading for people to shop alone - meaning no couples and no kids unless circumstances require that. Personally it does not matter to me. Last time I went shopping I saw several older couples - I have no issues with that. However there are some people who are deathly afraid of being in close contact with people in the store and overcrowding is a real problem for them. Also the less people the better in protecting staff. I was in the the baking aisle alone when a older lady entered the aisle. I was having a hard time finding yeast of course so was going up and down the aisle. I noticed she was very nervous as I started to get closer to her and she said the aisle was one way only. I knew this but said I was having a hard time finding something. I was a bit annoyed she was calling me out for going the wrong way when I was searching for something lol. I offered for her to pass me but that clearly revolted her by the look of disgust on her face. She very clearly did not want to be close to anyone. I ended up backing out of the aisle and let her pass so I could go back to looking for yeast - which of course was gone.
