Using a touchscreen?  ;)

One of the worst things Steve Jobs did to society, is make people focus both eyes and two hands on a small device, that literally takes over people's lives.

I trade currencies via Forex, not ETF's, I have been short the USD/NOK and USD/CAD for a few months, nice profits,the GBP/USD has more to go on the upside, there is resistance at around 1.33-1.34, if it takes this resistance then next target is 1.385.

Sounds like put options might be worthwhile

Watch 90 support, if it holds just place a stop below, if it breaks 90 on the downside can go all the way to 55.

This company has been Enron-ed.

They exist to create trust and they botched it, then botched the response in mulitple ways, plus have a CFO who will be grilled for insider trading. Now they're picking fights with the media. Public outrage is just starting to heat up. I really dont think they will survive.

Totally agree, from a trading point if it breaks under 90 the downside move will accelerate.

Pretty good prediction above. 90 did turn out to be a support level (so far)

I bought at 91.15 with a tight stop at 88.90. This is a short term trade.

Why not a trailing stop?

Because fundamentally I agree 100% with what you said, it can rally a few points to get buyers in and then gap down big one day soon , i only bought 300 shares and already sold out at 98.75,small quick profit.

Equifax Sacks 2 Executives, Gets Devious to Stop You from Getting a Credit Freeze.They’re terrified a mass credit freeze will crush revenues.Shares of Equifax dropped another 4% today, including after-hours, to $92.70. They’re now down 35%, or $50, from the happier era that ended at 5pm EST on September 7, with the confession that it had found out six weeks earlier that the most crucial personal data – “primarily names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers”
 So far, at 120.4 million shares outstanding as of June 30, the six trading days have cost investors $6 billion. No one cares about consumers. They’re just the product. But $6 billion matter.
Now heads are rolling. Oh no, not CEO Richard Smith. He is not leaving the company to spend more time with his family. Instead, Equifax announced Friday evening that it sacked two lower level executives. I mean, not sacked. Chief information officer, David Webb, and chief security officer, Susan Mauldin, “are retiring,” it said, “effective immediately.”

They fired Mauldin? There's got to be someone more expendable than the chief Music major at that compqny. Who is going to play violins on the deck?
