So your pumping "Food and Drug Retailers" and "Forestry Products" as low volatility products?

Or are you saying that we should not spend so much time worrying about money.

Or are you trying to say that miners are really good at digging great big holes?

Or are you trying to say that it is amazing that the Mortgage Writs still have the capability of losing 4.45% of a number that approaches 0 but cannot quite get there.

Or are you saying that life insurers went down because we are going to live forever and thus will not need their services, or that will live shorter lives and thus will collect more heavily than they thought?

What exactly is it that you are saying which speaks for itself?

Russell....all those things and more depending on how many voices one has in their head!

Yearly moves in a day---volatility, and unpredictability is what the sector data scream. Or perhaps a shrill Dr. Smith saying clutching young, brave Will Robinson (between the doc and danger of course) while the robot says, "Danger, danger, Will Robinson."
