In God We Trust / Emini Futures Trading - Friday February 26, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)



"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God"
(Psalm 20:7, NIV)




See those people polishing their chariots,
      and those others grooming their horses?
      But we're making garlands for God our God.
   The chariots will rust,
      those horses pull up lame—
      and we'll be on our feet, standing tall.
(Psalm 20:7-8, The Message)
The Psalm sums it up far better than I ever could. For the sake of a closing statement, please stop trusting in your own chariots or horses. Remember the Name of the Lord your God. May the Lord answer you, May He defend you, May He send you help, strengthen you, and remember every one of your offerings and sacrifices. May He grant your heart's desire and fulfill ALL your purpose. For this is the abundant life which He came to give...

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Seven - Serenity

(continued)
Tempest-tossed souls, wherever ye may be, under whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this - in the ocean of life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming. Keep your hand firmly upon the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul reclines the commanding Master; He does but sleep; wake Him. Self-control is strength; Right Thought is mastery; Calmness is power.

Say unto your heart, "Peace, be still!"

American Dream or American Idol? / Emini Futures Trading - Thursday February 25, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(SFEG)




"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives"
(John 12:24, NLT)
"Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over." 
(John 12:24, The Message)
So much of what we want to do for God we try to do by ourselves. Our motives are right. Our heart is right. Our plans are made with prayer. The problem is that we end up doing everything except the crucial thing: we are not willing to die. Our identity gets involved in pulling off our plans. Our hopes and our feelings about Christian service get tangled up in our success in the plan. Jesus reminds us that there is no harvest without death -- the seed has to be planted and die before it can germinate and grow. Jesus submitted everything, including his fears and his friends, to the will of God. It cost him his life. It won him the harvest. What have you not surrendered to God? (Listen Now)

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Seven - Serenity

"How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood! It is a question whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by lack of self-control. How few people we meet in life who are well-balanced, who have that exquisite poise which is characteristic of the finished character!"

Yes, humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is tumultuous with ungoverned grief, is blown about by anxiety and doubt. Only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled and purified, makes the winds and the storms of the soul obey him.

I'll Do It His Way / Emini Futures Trading - Wednesday February 24, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(SFEG)

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts"
(Isaiah 55:9, NIV)
"I don't think the way you think.
   The way you work isn't the way I work."
         God's Decree.
"For as the sky soars high above earth,
   so the way I work surpasses the way you work,
   and the way I think is beyond the way you think.
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies
   and don't go back until they've watered the earth,
Doing their work of making things grow and blossom,
   producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry,
So will the words that come out of my mouth
   not come back empty-handed.
They'll do the work I sent them to do,
   they'll complete the assignment I gave them. 
(Isaiah 55:8-11, The Message)
Let me ask you a question. Are we sinners because we have sinned? Or do we sin because we are sinners? Man sins for the simple reason that he is a sinner. It is not that he becomes a sinner as a result of sinning. This is why God said, "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord... for He will abundantly pardon" (Isaiah 55:7). Since God's thoughts and man's thoughts are so different, God asks us not to misunderstand this point. (Listen Now)

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Seven - Serenity

(continued)
The calm man, having learned how to govern himself, knows how to adapt himself to others; and they, in turn, reverence his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely upon him. The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Even the ordinary trader will find his business prosperity increase as he develops a greater self-control and equanimity, for people will always prefer to deal with a man whose demeanor is strongly equable.

The strong calm man is always loved and revered. He is like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land, or a sheltering rock in a storm. Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet-tempered, balanced life? It does not matter whether it rains or shines, or what changes come to those possessing these blessings, for they are always sweet, serene, and calm. That exquisite poise of character which we call serenity is the last lesson culture; it is the flowering of life, the fruitage of the soul. It is precious as wisdom, more to be desired than gold - yea, than even fine gold. How insignificant mere money-seeking looks in comparison with a serene life - a life that dwells in the ocean of Truth, beneath the waves, beyond the reach of tempests, in the Eternal Calm!

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Seven - Serenity

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.

A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought-evolved being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought. As he develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect, he ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised, steadfast, serene.

Trade Stalker / Emini Traders Boot Camp

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)



"I've lost so much money trading...I'm throwing in the towel!"
"I wish I'd found you years ago BEFORE I went broke trading!
"I make some money, then I give it right back...what am I doing wrong?"
"If I lose any more money trading, my wife's going to make me quit."
We get emails like this on a regular basis. It's really sad,
heartbreaking actually...especially since we've had the
solution for them all along. Unfortunately, alot of times by
the time they find us, it's too late. Don't let this be you!
These guys didn't have the right tools or experience to
compete. They had big dreams and high hopes of being a
successful trader, quitting their day jobs, building their
nest eggs. Unfortunately, big dreams and high hopes just
aren't enough to be successful trader.
So, here is the solution on how to become a SUCCESSFUL
trader.
Mike is willing to show you EXACTLY what his set ups are,
and how to use them. He'll show you how he finds his nightly
support and resistance levels. He will basically "give up
the farm" to 8 traders who are ready to make an appreciable
difference in their trading profits. Spend the week picking
his brain, and he'll show you how he's been able to make a
successful living day trading and how you can too!
Mike's week long "RBI Trading Camp" identifies every trick
and technique he's learned over the past 27 years that has
allowed him to gain an almost unfair advantage in Day
Trading.
You as a trader need to know the secrets that Mike
reveals during camp in order to compete with the
professional "big" trader's out there who are dominating the
market. http://www.tradestalker.com/RBI-Trading-Camp.htm
Can't travel? That's Ok..."RBI Trading Camp" is held in
Mike's virtual trading room via Hotcomm, so you have no
hotel, no meal, or travel costs. You attend from the comfort
of your own home!
To learn more about how you can trade alongside Mike for a
week, please go the webpage below. Better hurry though,
there's only 8 spots available!
"RBI Trading Camp" will be held MARCH 7TH - 13TH.
No other course out there even comes close!
To Your Success,

Dead or Alive? / Emini Futures Trading - Monday February 22, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)

"…faith without works is dead"
(James 2:20, NKJ)
"Do I hear you professing to believe in the one and only God, but then observe you complacently sitting back as if you had done something wonderful? That's just great. Demons do that, but what good does it do them? Use your heads! Do you suppose for a minute that you can cut faith and works in two and not end up with a corpse on your hands?"(James 2:20, The Message)

The Son did not leave Heaven to become a man and live among His creation to draw a Church full of Soul-led pew-sitters into eternal glory. He came to “seek and save the lost.” (Luke 19:10) He came to be the perfect blood sacrifice, The Lamb of God, to pay the price and penalty for the sins of all who will believe. His death on the cross paid that price as all sin was placed on Him as He died. He was raised from the dead on the third day then forty days later was ascended to the Heaven. Just before He ascended, He gave a command to His disciples and us as well.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 ESV)

Jesus came to make disciples. He is telling us we need to be His disciples and be dedicated to making disciples as well. The remaining eleven apostles (Judas Iscariot betrayed Christ and killed himself) went from a group of Soul-led, vacillating, hardhearted believers who were mired in unbelief to eleven Spirit-led, faithful, tenderhearted believers who changed the World. They were able to do this because they devoted themselves to Christ and submitted to the control of the Holy Spirit. As they submitted, they were able to “go and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28:19)

One of the results of our faith in the Lord Jesus is a changed life. We’re no longer slaves to sin, no longer held captive to the things of this world, and we want to show our gratitude for being given the gift of salvation that set us free. This creates a desire to do good things for others, showing our love for them as a reflection of His love for us. We don’t have to force this, it just happens. (Listen Now)

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Six - Visions and Ideals

(continued)
In the beautiful words of Stanton Kirkham Dave, "You may be keeping accounts, and presently you shall walk out of the door that for so long has seemed to you the barrier of your ideals, and shall find yourself before an audience - the pen still behind your ear, the ink stains on your fingers - and then and there shall pour out the torrent of your inspiration. You may be driving sheep, and you shall wander to the city - bucolic and open mouthed; shall wander under the intrepid guidance of the spirit into the studio of the master, and after a time he shall say, 'I have nothing more to teach you.' And now you have become the master, who did so recently dream of great things while driving sheep. You shall lay down the saw and the plane to take upon yourself the regeneration of the world."

The thoughtless, the ignorant, and the indolent, seeing only the apparent effects of things and not the things themselves, talk of luck, of fortune, and chance. See a man grow rich, they say, "How lucky he is!" Observing another become intellectual, they exclaim, "How highly favored he is!" And noting the saintly character and wide influence of another, the remark, "How chance aids him at every turn!"

They do not see the trials and failures and struggles which these men have voluntarily encountered in order to gain their experience. They have no knowledge of the sacrifices they have made, of the undaunted efforts they have put forth, of the faith they have exercised, that they might overcome the apparently insurmountable, and realize the Vision of their heart. They do not know the darkness and the heartaches; they only see the light and joy, and call it "luck"; do not see the long and arduous journey, but only behold the pleasant goal, and call it "good fortune"; do not understand the process, but only perceive the result, and call it "chance."

In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result. Chance is not. "Gifts," powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort. They are thoughts completed, objects accomplished, visions realized.

The vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart - this you will build your life by, this you will become.

Trading is about being okay with ambiguity. It's about tolerating confusion. It's about sitting with discomfort and being at peace with it. It's about not having an exact script of when to trade or not to trade, or what's really a high odds trade, and being okay with that. It's about exceptions to the rules. It's about contradiction. It's about uncertainty. (read more)

Stand Your Ground / Emini Futures Trading - Friday February 19, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(XLF)

"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand"
(Ephesians 6:13, NIV)
"Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet."
(Ephesians 6:13, The Message)
 
The apostle Paul encourages Christians to be equipped to fight against "the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Listen Now)


As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Six - Visions and Ideals

(continued)
Your circumstances may be uncongenial, but they shall not long remain so if you but perceive an Ideal and strive to reach it. You cannot travel within and stand still without. Here is a youth hard pressed by poverty and labor; confined long hours in an unhealthy workshop; unschooled, and lacking all the arts of refinement. But he dreams of better things. He thinks of intelligence, of refinement, of grace and beauty. He conceives of, mentally builds up, an ideal condition of life. The vision of the wider liberty and a larger scope takes possession of him; unrest urges him to action, and he utilizes all his spare time and means, small though they are, to the development of his latent powers and resources.

Very soon so altered has his mind become that the workshop can no longer hold him. It has become so out of harmony with his mentality that it falls out of his life as a garment is cast aside, and with the growth of opportunities which fit the scope of his expanding powers, he passes out of it forever.

Years later we see this youth as a full-grown man. We find him a master of certain forces of the mind which he wields with world-wide influence and almost unequaled power. In his hands he holds the cords of gigantic responsibilities. He speaks, and lo! lives are changed. Men and women hang upon his words and remold their characters, and, sunlike, he becomes the fixed and luminous center around which innumerable destinies revolve. He has realized the Vision of his youth. He has become one with his Ideal. 

And you, too, youthful reader, will realize the Vision (not the idle wish) of your heart, be it base or beautiful, or a mixture of both, for you will always gravitate toward that which you secretly most love. Into your hands will be placed the exact results of your own thoughts; you will receive that which you earn, no more, no less. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.

"Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful"
(Joshua 1:8, NIV)
"And don't for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you'll get where you're going; then you'll succeed."
(Joshua 1:8, The Message)

People looking for prosperity, people who are looking for success, God has given you the rules. Meditate on it, observe it, and thus shalt thou make thy way prosperous, for these are the rules to prosperity. These are the rules to success. These are the conditions upon which you can know the power, the presence, and the victory. (Listen Now)

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Six - Visions and Ideals

(continued)
To desire is to obtain; to aspire is to achieve. Shall man's basest desires receive the fullest measure of gratification, and his purest aspirations starve for lack of sustenance? Such is not the Law. Such a condition of things can never obtain - "Ask and receive."

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your Vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. Your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.

The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

Battered Trader Syndrome / Emini Futures Trading

Battered Trader Syndrome Test





Are you
Frustrated?
Scared?
Broke?

Desperate?


Of course you are. 

The real question is  - "Can you admit it?" 

Well... can you?

If so, you've come to the right place.

The good news is, even though you're (all of the above)
THERE REALLY IS MONEY TO BE MADE TRADING!


What you need more than anything right now is someone who can understand just how messed up you really are and still love you. Well...we were equally messed up and we do love you... in a Jesus way.

Now the Alkie's and Narco's (where I am still in good standing) have some rules. Actually they call them Steps. Now these steps are how we get better.

The pink elephant in the room right now is asking you, "Do you want to get better?" Or in Jesus speak,  "Do you really want to get better?"


If you said no - 
continue with
Frustrated
Scared
Broke
&
Desperate
(and close this window on your way out)

If you said yes, or HECK YES! then welcome to the First Step

1st Step
We admitted we were powerless over our Trading - that our trading had become unmanageable

How It Works - The fact is that most traders, for reasons yet obscure, have lost the power of following their rules in trading. Our so-called willpower becomes practically non-existent. We are unable, at certain times, to bring into our consciousness with sufficient force the memory of the suffering and humiliation of even a week or a month ago. We are without defense against the first trade that violates our rules.

Be Sure To Come Back for Step 2.

ps/
There are NO trading secrets! Anything any good, is already in the public domain. The key is finding someone who can help you interpret the real truth vs. a vague impersonation of what walks like the truth and talks like the truth, but albeit in the light of day is mere quackery.

Ancient Trading Proverb:
Behind every Legendary futures trader is one freakishly wealthy broker.

We Shall Overcome / Emini Futures Trading - Tuesday February 16, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(SFEG)

"For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith"
(I John 5:4, NIV)
Art Linkletter once said, "Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out." It isn't that some people have it better than others. We all have our trials and tribulations. I have observed though, that some of those people with the worst sufferings in life seem to have chosen to have the most positive attitudes to deal with them.
Attitude is the way you mentally look at the world around you. It is how you view your environment and your future. It is the focus you develop toward life itself. The power of a positive attitude is not a position of flighty disregard for the struggles in life. Not at all. Rather it's a position of strength that acknowledges the struggles and moves beyond them. A positive attitude takes you OUT of self-pity and into effective living. It doesn't take you out of pain and suffering, but rather takes you beyond them and in spite of them, into a creative affirming place of being.  (Listen Now)

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Six - Visions and Ideals

The dreamers are the saviors of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers. It cannot let their ideals fade and die. It lives in them. It knows them in the realities which it shall one day see and know.

Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage, these are the makers of the afterworld, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, laboring humanity would perish.

He who cherishes a beautiful vision, a lofty ideal in his heart, will one day realize it. Columbus cherished a vision of another world, and he discovered it. Copernicus fostered the vision of a multiplicity of worlds and a wider universe, and he revealed it.

Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

Deliverance / Emini Futures Trading - Friday February 12, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(GLD)

"People who do what is right may have many problems, but the Lord will solve them all."
(Psalm 34:19, NCV)
Is that not a reason to love God? But you see, you can only love Him if you know Him; and you can only get to know Him, in a sense, if you've experienced His person in the very elements. Daniel says: 'The people that do know their God shall be strong, and shall do exploits' - but you've got to know God, you've got to understand something about who He is. An imperfect knowledge of God is like the tail feathers of a peacock: highly ornamental, but not much use in high wind. (Listen Now)

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Five - The Thought - Factor in Achievement

(continued)
Intellectual achievements are the result of thought consecrated to the search for knowledge, or for the beautiful and true in life and nature. Such achievements may be sometimes connected with vanity and ambition but they are not the outcome of those characteristics. They are the natural outgrowth of long an arduous effort, and of pure and unselfish thoughts.

Spiritual achievements are the consummation of holy aspirations. He who lives constantly in the conception of noble and lofty thoughts, who dwells upon all that is pure and unselfish, will, as surely as the sun reaches its zenith and the moon its full, become wise and noble in character, and rise into a position of influence and blessedness.

Achievement, of whatever kind, is the crown of effort, the diadem of thought. By the aid of self-control, resolution, purity, righteousness, and well-directed thought a man ascends. By the aid of animality, indolence, impurity, corruption, and confusion of thought a man descends.

A man may rise to high success in the world, and even to lofty altitudes in the spiritual realm, and again descend into weakness and wretchedness by allowing arrogant, selfish, and corrupt thoughts to take possession of him.

Victories attained by right thought can only be maintained by watchfulness. Many give way when success is assured, and rapidly fall back into failure.

All achievements, whether in the business, intellectual, or spiritual world, are the result of definitely directed thought, are governed by the same law and are of the same method; the only difference lies in the object of attainment. 

He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little. He who would achieve much must sacrifice much. He who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.

No Fear / Emini Futures Trading - Thursday February 11, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(SFEG)

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline"
(II Timothy 1:7, NLT)
Are we afraid? (Does the sun rise in the east?) There are days when our fears are so slight as to be scarcely noticeable, and other days when they muscle everything else out of our minds. Some of our fears we readily understand. The company we work for has merged with a larger company and not all management and executive personnel are going to be retained. Our child seems unwell and we have just enough medical knowledge as not to be put off by our friends’ reassurances that there is nothing wrong. We are afraid that the psychological booby-trap which we have known of for years and which we have disguised, stepped around or hidden; that situation where we do not cope and where we appear so helpless, weak and silly – we fear it’s going to become publicly evident and we shall be humiliated. We are afraid that since we are not married yet we are never going to be married. (I also meet people who are afraid that since they are married now they are never going to get unmarried.) And then there is a different kind of fear, unattached to any specific object or occurrence. “Existential anxiety” is the term mental health experts use. Existential anxiety is that niggling, lapping, semi-conscious awareness of our fragility, our frailty, our ultimate powerlessness in the face of life’s accidentality and our own mortality. 

The preacher keeps reminding us that “Fear not” is the most frequent command on the lips of Jesus. His telling us to fear not, we feel nonetheless, has as much effect on us as...(Listen Now)

Chapter Five - The Thought - Factor in Achievement

(continued)
He who has conquered weakness, and has put away all selfish thoughts, belongs neither to oppressor nor oppressed. He is free. 

A man can only rise, conquer, and achieve by lifting up his thoughts. He can only remain weak, and abject, and miserable by refusing to lift up his thoughts.

Before a man can achieve anything, even in worldly things, he must lift his thoughts above slavish animal indulgence. He may not, in order to succeed, give up all animality and selfishness, by any means; but a portion of it must, at least, be sacrificed. A man whose first thought is bestial indulgence could neither think clearly nor plan methodically. He could not find and develop his latent resources, and would fail in any undertaking. Not having commenced manfully to control his thoughts, he is not in a position to control affairs and to adopt serious responsibilities. He is not fit to act independently and stand alone, but he is limited only by the thoughts which he chooses.

There can be no progress, no achievement without sacrifice. A man's worldly success will be in the measure that he sacrifices his confused animal thoughts, and fixes his mind on the development of his plans, and the strengthening of his resolution and self reliance. And the higher he lifts his thoughts, the more manly, upright, and righteous he becomes, the greater will be his success, the more blessed an enduring will be his achievements.

The universe does not favor the greedy, the dishonest, the vicious, although on the mere surface it may sometimes appear to do so; it helps the honest, the magnanimous, the virtuous. All the great Teachers of the ages have declared this in varying forms, and to prove and know it a man has but to persist in making himself more and more virtuous by lifting up his thoughts.

I Have A Dream / Emini Futures Trading - Wednesday February 10, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)(FCX)(SFEG)

Santa Fe Gold News
Santa Fe Gold Supplies Trial Shipment of Flux Material to Arizona Smelter for Precious Metals Recovery
Business Wire(Wed 9:35am)


This is not the first time SFEG has done business with Freeport-McMoRan. (well sort of) Let's step back in time to this -  
AZCO AGREES TO US $40 MILLION TRANSACTION WITH PHELPS DODGE.

And this - 
Santa Fe Gold Corp (OTC Bulletin Board: AZMN), formerly Azco Mining Inc., a U.S.-based mining and exploration enterprise focused on gold, silver, copper and industrial minerals, today announced that effective September 12, 2007, its new ticker symbol will be SFEG for trading on the OTB Bulletin Board.

And this -
Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold to Acquire Phelps Dodge, Creating the World's Largest Publicly Traded Copper Company


And now today - 
Santa Fe Gold Corporation (OTCBB: SFEG - News) today announced it had agreed with Freeport-McMoRan Miami Inc. (“FM Miami”) to supply a trial shipment of 3,000 tons of high-silica flux material to FM Miami’s smelter located near Claypool, Arizona.


Did you follow that?
On January 16th we offered a Technical Perspective of Santa Fe Gold Corp. Now that the .92 projection has been fulfilled, we anticipate higher prices moving forward. Here is a reprint - 


Technical Perspective 












On a weekly chart we readily find 3 points of support and potential support. It is quite possible that support was found On Friday at $1.16. That price represented the 50 Period SMA and dual Fib confluence and is exhibited on the chart as A. If that support is to hold we should see price move higher Tuesday after any resting market orders to sell are filled on the open.

Should $1.16 be violated have a look at B. There we find the 200 Period SMA, the bottom of the price channel and another Fib confluence. Due to the time decay factor we are looking at a price somewhere between .92 and $1.00.

Finally we have C which is dual Fib confluence between .80 and .82 and would represent a 50% retracement from recent highs.

Because of the fundamental nature of what has, and is yet to transpire, it will be quite interesting to see how well technical analysis serves us in the short term. While these price levels are not predictions, should we see a break of $1.16, resting buy orders could be placed at or near the above mentioned prices for investors seeking entry.

 

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Chapter Five - The Thought - Factor in Achievement

All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts. In a justly ordered universe, where loss of equipoise would mean total destruction, individual responsibility must be absolute. A man's weakness and strength, purity and impurity, are his own, and not another man's. They are brought about by himself, and not by another; and they can only be altered by himself, never by another. His condition is also his own, and not another man's. His suffering and his happiness are evolved from within. As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.

A strong man cannot help a weaker unless the weaker is willing to be helped, and even then the weak man must become strong of himself. He must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another. None but himself can alter his condition.

It has been usual for men to think and to say, "Many men are slaves because one is an oppressor; let us hate the oppressor." Now, however, there is among an increasing few a tendency to reverse this judgment, and to say, "One man is an oppressor because many are slaves; let us despise the slaves." The truth is that oppressor and slave are cooperators in ignorance, and, while seeming to afflict each other, are in reality afflicting themselves. A perfect Knowledge perceives the action of law in the weakness of the oppressed and the misapplied power of the oppressor. A perfect Love, seeing the suffering which both states entail, condemns neither. A perfect Compassion embraces both oppressor and oppressed.
