On January 4, I posted that the Israeli shekel and the Norwegian Kroner where the best plays against the USD in the Forex market, I said if the USDILS breaks below 3.49 we go to 3.40 very fast, did so in 1 week, now if it breaks 3.40 whoever is sitting on shekels will be happy and we'll see 3.20 ,  current price 3.4044.
USDNOK down to 7.99, I am still short both , see today's charts below

USDILS  Monthly chart

USDNOK Monthly chart
USDNOK short  down to 7.87 working nicely , down from 8.40 in 3 weeks, bigger down move in progress,

IB had no shares available to short, so how in the world did you short KODK  with IB?
Did I say I shorted KODK with IB? And even if it was with IB, did you try to short at the same second that I did  :)? I have been trading for too many years and learned to use several brokers, in answering your question I listed the 2 brokers I use the most, never said I used IB to short KODK. Anyhow this trade is done and closed, I am keeping an eye on my BTCUSD short , it is down close to $2700 tonight, lowered my stop, but it looks the downside will accelerate . This trade will really ring the register. Getting ready to exit my remaining position soon.

Brief Trip report
Just visited Houston with my wife for a residency interview.

Flew in Thursday morning on southwest with companion ticket (finally posted!!) rented from Hertz (used autoslash to get 45$ rate for 3 days) and had a very smooth car pickup experience. Headed towards johnson space center. Took the tram tour there to the historic mission control, vehicle mockup building (9), and rocket park. New mission control wasn't on the trip. Also toured the shuttle and 747 exhibit but had no time shows. 9/10 experience.

Headed afterwards to Saba for lunch
jachnun 7/10 -served with salad
pizza 6/10
pesto pasta 9/10
mozzarella sticks 6/10
However, service was excellent and the bill was reasonable.

and Saba's grill to pickup dinner for later
shwarma lafa
can't rate objectively because they were eaten later cold.

Bunked in the Marriot medical center and was upgraded to Presidential suite which was a nice room with kitchenette, dining room table, small card table area, couch, and 2 bathrooms.
There was some issue with checkin time, but was given a temp room after asking for it.

Next day I interviewed, grabbed lunch at greens:
jalepeno chickpea burger - tasted ok, cheese wasn't fully melted
Chicken parm- soy chicken with spaghetti- chicken was delicious spaghetti less so.
vegan oreo and banana nut cupcakes- 10/10

Spent shabbos in the UOS community which was incredibly warm and welcoming despite still recovering from Harvey.

Motzash we went to Zoo lights in the Houston zoo which was fantastic. Essentially they light the zoo up with a bunch of led's and other colored lights, some coordinated with the music playing. They develop a guided path and while most of the animals are asleep, its a fantastic stroll.

Picked up Genesis despite them being closed for school fundraiser so props to them for making it work.
Bruce burger- 9.5/10 good burger, good pastrami, amazing beer batter onion rings.
spaghetti and meatballs- 5/10 sauce was decent but my wife thought the meatballs were rubbery

Spent the night in the sheraton 4 points hobby airport. Nothing bad to say here, not sure if its worth it compared to the other peri-airport hotels. 5 min drive to hertz and took the shuttle. sitting in airport about to board.

Peace out Houston twas awesome!
Thanks, nice and good luck.

Are there any other Netherlands cities worth visiting for a few days? Thinking about a week trip but that's probably too long for just 1 city. Couple + baby.
1 week is too long for just Amsterdam, have been there many times.  I did not visit other cities in the Netherlands, but always did other inter Europe and UK.

I thought ELAL only takes pilots from the IAF
Years back I know for sure this was the case, only IAF pilots, military pilots are more skilled and fly better jet planes whether cargo or fighters , compared to the pilots coming from general aviation schools and operators.

You can call the # on the back of your card and they will override and allow payments by phone from as many accounts as you want.

Can someone explain to a simple person why $low just shot up?
(Bought it a few days ago :D)
LOW had a strong resistance at $83-$86, after it went above on strong volume these were all time highs with no sellers trying to get out to break even, also momentum buyers who buy new all time highs jumped in, it is currently overbought and I'll not chase it here.
