While I should of followed the buy indicator, I jumped the gun and bought out after my margin had increased 20%.
I followed the EMA short indicator crossing the medium indicator as a buy/sell trigger. I circled the point at which I set my sell order, and when I bought out.

I didn’t know the best way to share this considering I don’t have the email addresses of all those I am camping with. But here is some info on the chances of rain for this long weekend:
The hemispheric long wave pattern has remained stable in recent weeks. There are five main troughs. Currently the most significant troughs are near the longitudes of South Africa, the Indian Ocean, Western Australia, eastern Australia, the south Pacific, and the southeast Pacific.
Over southern and eastern Australia the cold front events with potential to bring widespread rain are now expected about 3 October to 7 October, 9 October to 13 October, and 26 October to 30 October. Rain events originating in the tropics and moving south are possible about 29 September to 3 October, 7 October to 11 October, and 28 October to 1 November.
Over Western Australia the strongest cold fronts should occur about 3 October to 7 October, 9 October to 13 October, and 16 October to 20 October.
Where did this information come from you ask?
A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist
named Jon complimented the Mexican fisherman on the quality of
his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.
“Not very long,” answered the Mexican.
“But then, why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?” asked
The Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet
his needs and those of his family.
“But what do you do with the rest of your time?”
“I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, make love to
my wife. In the evenings I go into the village to see my friends,
have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs. I have
a full life.”
The American interrupted, “I have an M.BA. from Stanford and I
can help you. You should start by fishing longer every day. You
can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue,
you can buy a bigger boat. With the extra money the larger boat
will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on
until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling
your fish to a middle man, you can negotiate directly with the
processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. You can
then leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los
Angeles, or even New Jersey! From there you can direct your huge
“How long would that take?” asked the Mexican.
“Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years.”
“And after that?”
“Afterwards? That’s when it gets really interesting. When your
business gets really big, you can start selling stocks and make
“Millions? Really? And after that?”
“After that you’ll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near
the coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish,
make love to your wife, and spend your evenings drinking and
playing the guitar with your friends!”

This week I managed to watch a few of the games, and as per my review system, I am only going to review the games I watched. I hit up the Gabba for the Lions vs Blues game, got to see the Lions from 2011 which was as much fun as 2011 was. I watched Richmond vs Collingwood, Saints vs Suns and the Geelong vs Hawthorne blockbuster.
The first quarter of the first game gave hope that the games of round 2 could indeed match up to the opening round. When the blues put on 5 goals to none in the second term alarm bells where ringing for the Lions and Vossy would of been sweating. If only it had stopped there. Blues ending up running up 18 goals to 2 after the first quarter beating the Lions at the final siren by 91 points. Generally at no time did the Lions look like an AFL team. Throughout most of the game, the Blues certainly look like top 4 contenders. Their running game is outstanding, with players like Betts, Garlett, Yarran and Judd there is an amazing amount of pace and skill. If you add to the fray Scotland, Gibbs and Kruezer you have an all star team that certainly showed that on the night. They put on pressure like a boulder on a baby, the Lions got squished just as easily. They were kicking straight to the opposition, Luey had an opportunity with a break and picked out the one blues player that had no-one within 50 metres of him. But for the amount the Lions stunk, the Blues certainly showed their skills. They didn’t let off the throat for the entire game. Lions stopped challenging and that is something more reminiscent of the Suns then of an established AFL team. If you take anything from this game, it is that the Lions still have a long way to go to be a contender. The fallout includes Simon Black breaking his and is looking to be out for 4-5 weeks. Not a good thing for the Lions best on ground on the night.
Oh what a game. The Cats and Hawks rivalry is alive and well. It was Hawk(ins) vs Hawks as the Cats key forward stepped it up a notch booting 3 majors which accompanied J-Pod’s 5 to show the Cat’s still have it and Hawkins is one of the up and coming superstars of the game. It had the pace and desire of a final as both teams refused to yield. While Geelong was brilliant the Hawks lost their concentration which you would have to say is the real reason they lost on the day. The lead jumped back and forth numerous times in the first half with the highest margin just 2 goals. The hawks took the lead into the second half with a 9 point lead, a pair of early goals for the Hawks too the lead out to 21 points, the games highest margin. Geelong managed to get back in touch tying the scores before late goals to Rioli, Suckling and Whitecross took the hawks back out to an 18 point lead going into the last quarter. Buddy had a chance to kick the Hawks well in front and swing momentum with a running shot from the sideline but he opted to dribble it with the ball sliding in front of goals and Osborne opting to pick up the ball rather than soccer it through which gave Lonergan a chance to smother the effort for a behind. This seemed to demoralise the Hawks and Geelong wresteled the lead in a fourth quarter fightback that saw them kick the only 4 goals of the last period taking home the win by 2 points.
Clarkson really summed up the day pretty well in his post-match conference: Ultimately it came down to us not taking our chances in the last quarter,” he said. “We know we’re thereabouts, but we were playing against a very good side. They’re resilient and strong, and very talented.”
That’s my Round 2 wrapup! Will try and watch more of this weeks games!
The Giant rookies fared well against the Swans, Carlton ran out winners over Richmond, the Hawks took out last years minor premiers, Lions surprised a few downing the Dee’s, Adelaide took the expected honours over the Suns, Freo knocked off the 2012 premiers, North missed out against the Bombers, Eagles trounced the Doggies and Port got up over the hapless Saints to finish the round. An amazing first round where a few games came down to a single kick, one after the siren, some great performances from veterans and rookies alike and 2 suspensions being handed out.
What I loved about the Giants game was the heart they showed against overwhelming odds. My bet is Sheedy breifed them on stature rather than stamina. Everyone knew the Giants stood little chance of getting first blood in the opening game, but many tipped them to go down by a lot more. Sure 10 goals might seem like a lot, but if you take out a third quarter romp by the Swans the game was fairly competitive, albeit a little sloppy to watch. Giants lacked the engine to run out the 4 quarters but not once did I see a Giants player giving up. Rookies Bugg and Greene showed their true value racking up 27 possessions a piece and Kennedy topping the Giants possessions with 28. The three managed to get more of the ball than veterans Palmer (25), MacDonald (24) and Cornes (25). If they can string that together week to week the Giants may get more than a few wins in their first year. The Swans on the other hand looked a little nervy and they still lack any decent defensive pressure. They certainly restricted the young Giants scoring options, but you should expect that from every team against the Giants this year. Swans have some great players, Kieran Jack was outstanding for the bloods, but Goodes didn’t look to be in his normal vintage form. Hopefully the Swans can brush off first round jitters to keep their campaign rolling.
The second game I watched was the Carlton Richmond game on Thursday night. This actually was a closer contest then the 44 point scoreboard margin would indicate. The first three quarters was an ebb and flow game with both teams showcasing that they have really stepped it up in 2012. Cotchin had a great opening quarter for the Tigers in the middle but Carazzo started wrapping him up soon after so the Tigers alternated Cotchin and Martin into the goal sqaure, leaving Riewoldt at half forward. Lachie Henderson had an outstanding game playing on Riewoldt and the 4 goals Riewoldt kicked doesn’t really show how dominating Lachie was in defense. Yarran already got in a favourite for goal of the year when he took the ball on the wing and widened the boundary running 60m before kicking the goal from the pocket. The ball clearly crossing the line but the goal stood and it came at a time where the Tigers took a real moral hit after coming back from 5 goals down. Blues ran out easy winners after Yarran’s wonder goal, kicking all but 1 of the last quarters goals. Kruezer had a great game in the navy blue, but Judd looked a little under-done after a shaky pre-season. Blues looking good so far, am not looking forward to the Lions playing the Blues tomorrow night!
I only saw bits and pieces of the next three games of the rounds; Collingwood vs Hawks, Lions vs Demons and Adelaide vs Gold Coast. The standout from the Hawks game was not just Cyril Rioli taking flight over Shaw, but that the hype surrounding the Hawks this year is well deserved Buddy is in best form, kicking a bag (5) of goals. It was a valuable win for the Hawks not having beaten the Pies in their last 4 encounters, and looking to face the Cats next week they have the chance to 2-0 up on 2 of the best teams in the competition.
I was at Nobby Beach surf club for the Lions vs Dee’s game and got to see a good chunk of the 2nd and 3rd quarters. I had tipped the Demons to take the game, and thought it might be by a fair bit after Stynes state funeral the week before. I think everyone got a shock when the Lions took the lead into the main break. The contested footy was tilting the Demons way but their clearances and disposals to forward options were severely lacking. The Lions, without Browny, seemed to have an abundance of forward options with Merret playing forward, Rockcliff pushing up and Polker kicking a few as well. The Lions ran away with the game in the 3rd and 4th quarters which is something they haven’t been able to do in a few years. Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch the 4th quarter as some retard at the surf club changed the channel to another game. Hudson looked to compliment Luenberger well and it can be safely said that Mitch Clark is not the silver bullet to the Demons problems.
The only other game that I caught any of was the Adelaide vs Suns game. Adelaide obvious hot favourites after taking away the NAB preseason cup, taking away the win. The suns actually looked a lot weaker than I would of expected after a fairly good pre-season getting some fitness into their young side. Ablett was at his best as always getting another best on ground performance for the suns, but their defense still lacks a lot of oomph without veteran backs Bock and Campbell in the back line. The Crows poured on the points in the first quarter and I must say the Suns fought hard to get back into it, but only stemming the flow rather than making up ground. Suns might end up getting back to back spoons this year as its still too early to say they have a leg up over GWS.
The other games seemed to be all corkers with the Eagles Vs Bulldogs game being the only one that featured a final margin greater than 4 points. It came down to a kick for McIntosh sprayed the shot and North Melbourne went down to Essendon. Port suprised St Kilda beating them by 4 points at AAMI stadium. Bulldogs look well out of sorts, and Eagles look to be top 4 contenders when they ran out winners by 49 points. The talk of the round was the fiery clash between the Cats and the Dockers with 3 incidents going to the Match Review Panel (Scarlett and Ballentyne for striking, James Kelly for rough conduct), a strong fightback from Geelong before going down by 4 points to a strong looking Freemantle outfit.
I have thus far resisted blogging about Skyrim because really, I have nothing new to offer on the plethora of wiki’s and fan sites that are run out there. However, I am compelled to post something of my characters journey in game, and my thoughts and feelings on the game. I am playing on the PS3 so that clears that up. I would like to get it going on PC for modding purposes though.
So my character is a Breton named Elgorin. I didn’t have a set plan of what type of character I would play, but like the idea of conjurring a wolf sidekick. Turns out the wolf kind of sucked past level 5, but anyways. Being a Breton the character got a bonus 25% magic resistance, and doesn’t look like a slimy criminal Argonian.
I started out having played very little of Oblivion, and never completed Morrowind, so took a little while to get into the groove, but the first thing that struck me was the beauty and scale of the game. The landscapes, sky, foliage… everything looked amazing, and most things were interactive. I was harvesting butterflies, mountain flowers, mining ore all while on my way to Riverwood, the starter town. Ok to some that is boring but I am one of those obsessive players that likes to collect and craft, and leave no stone unturned.
And with that in mind one of the first things I did was explore the world collecting ingredients and materials for smithing, alchemy and enchanting. Occasionaly I fought off bandits and what not, and did the odd quest, but my goal was to make a full set of awesome armour and enchant it with something that suited my game style. Random loot is for chumps.
I set up shop in Whiterun, aka Erodas of Rohan, and got aquainted with the forge there and began going on hunting and mining operations to create some good armour and forge my fortunes. I had heard that the Jarl, Balgruuf, will offer you land if you do some quests for him so I went and had a word with him.
Whats that Balgruuf? There is a dragon nearby? Attacking a tower? Billy is stuck in the well? Of course I will sort this out, I am Elgorin the great… Breton… guy. So I go and check out this alleged tower thinking its probably just a filthy argonian someone thought was a dragon or something.
ZOMG! A dragon is attacking the tower, run and hide, RUN AND HIDE. I emerge from the tower as the last remaining guards have almost killed the dragon. I summon my wolf, draw my sword and have at this scaled beast. Sure enough I get the death blow. A hard fought battle, good job boys. Oh you all died… well you should of heeded my warning of running and hiding. Poor form.
I go back to Balgruuf and declare that the dragon is dead and I absorbed his power in some form of awesome light absorption thing. He didn’t seem all that impressed with my excitement and tells me to visit some old folks home on top of a mountain.
To hell with that, I need to find some gold mines to get some septims y’all. So I spend the time after that adventuring in the rich silver and gold mines of the Reach. Getting blinged out, and becoming a Master smith. Dragon attacks occur on a fairly regular basis, which is good when other folk are about to attack it while I run and hide. Occasionaly I am forced to fend the dragon off on my own. The nerve of some people.
So I eventually work my way to a stage where I weild unnatural power with my awesome armour and weaponry that I crafted myself. So I go and speak with the old grey dudes up top top the mountain (it seems an awfully cold place. If I were to retire it wouldn’t be to a snowy mountain, it would be to a sunny tropical island). Anyways so I go and see them about upping the anti and maybe facing a challenging scenario.
They put me onto some giant lizard guy called Aldi or something of the sorts. He is a wiley folk and it takes me a while to actually find him, not that long to dispatch him. Yah chillrend!
So I think maybe I broke the game.
I have been playing on Master difficulty since about level 40, and I am level 56 now and haven’t really come across a situation where I am ever in any danger, or can’t kill my enemy in a couple of hits. When capturing Solitude (Viva la Revoluzione!) I could literally just wander around with handfulls of imperials attacking me and I never lost more than 10% health. The only time that occurred was when attempting to murder Galmer and Ulfric. Some god protects them and they will only yield, they decided to fight back so I just shouted them across the courtyard into a fire.
So I broke the game, and I never even took an arrow to the knee.
Sorry no screenshots… downside of console gaming
In the other fixtures across round 1 span across to the next week. Richmond play Carlton at the MCG, the Hawks take on the Pies the next night at the MCG, the Dee‘s will likely down the Lions at the ‘G the next afternoon and that night Gold Coast take on Adelaide, Kanga’s take on the Bombers and the Cats travel to the Dockers. Closing the round on the next day is the Bulldogs and Eagles and Port Adelaide hosting the Saints. I took the liberty of highlighting my tips for the first round, but with so far to go it could change.
As far as the White Ribbon cup goes this Saturday, here is what I want to see in the game:
- Falou given a tagging role. We know he can tackle, we know he is fiery. When Sheedy commented that he was going to unleash the raging bull to tag Goodes, I want to see him back it up. His skills in reading the game aren’t great and giving him the sole job of staying within touching distance of Goodes would be a great measure of how far he can go in this game
- GWS rookies to really turn up. They really need their rookies to fire early for people to stay interested. They don’t need to win the game, but they need people to say “wow that guy can play and this is his first professional game”
- I hate to say it, but I want Luke Power to have a blinder and show Vossy what an idiot he was letting the triple priemership player go.
I will try and capture some thoughts for future posts while attending the Lions games this year. Hopefully we can pull out a few wins!
