I'm way in over my head on most of this stuff, but can someone explain to me why this chart looks different from, say, this one?

Why is there a floor from roughly 2:45 - 3:05PM on the BigCharts graph and then an instantaneous jump up? Just a glitch? Do they get their market data differently? Data overload? Thanks in advance.

Romania is to cut wages and pensions in the public sector later this year to comply with an IMF-led rescue deal.

Romanian President Traian Basescu said the "programme to cut public expenses was inevitable".

Public sector wages will be cut by 25% and all salaries, including the minimum one, will be affected. Jobless benefits and pensions will be slashed by 15%.

Romania is the recipient of a 20bn-euro aid package from the IMF, the EU and the World Bank.

The country, as well as two other bailed-out states, Latvia and Hungary, have missed targets for cutting their deficits by significant margins.

yeah i noticed !


gold is up 22.4 $, in € = i'm not sure because the USA is $ centric


too bad my $100 buy in...at my PM fund wasn't executed YESTERDAY...
at this price i will have spent 15% more money for the same merchandise, if nly i was 24 hrs earlier...or had a 'wire' investment protocol in place...


all i can feel smug about is tha Gold-PM will be up big-time in the next 100 days as the BS 'system' collapses around us on a daily basis

Yeah, I should have kept my short euro from 1.42 - but I was smart and used all margin to blow up on gbp/jpy - it was a rush though

1.26 was my target on EUR USD - I think this is the bottom, if not there is going to be major problems with EUR USD going by monthly charts.

I know it looks ugly now but this is the breaking point for EURO IMO

I have been reading your posts for quite awhile and have been impressed as all heck. How did you learn all this? Are you a pro trader?

Hell no, I don't have the capital to be considered pro.

And I am emotionally unstable (witness my moves in gbp/jpy, but I was up for 24+ hours too though at that point)

But I am good with pattern recognition and luckily I know how to program. So I don't make discretionary decisions. I do have programs with private entities that give me a meager living currently. It could always be better, one day it will be.
