This is a test, this is only a test.
This is a test of the Fools Advisor SKY is/isn't Falling Network FASIN. Also short for Fasten Your Seatbelts and Hug Your Knees. This is only a test. It has only been ran on a Saturday to minimize confusion. Fools should be out enjoying the weather, watching/playing sports, spending time with family, counting their money, building thier bunkers, buying C-rations, calibrating their options calculator or whatever Fools do when not on CAPS.
If this had been Portefeuille or one of his many alias that helped propel him to the top TEN then you would have been alerted by: " ... " in the title and not *** Be advised that if you are alerted by Portefeuille or one of his ali then you need to read the post carefully and then discard it. Saving it to your "following" tab will only cause confusion as it will be indistinguishable from his other blogs with the exact same title and outdated in a short time.
If this had been a Class 5 SKY IS FALLING Alert, you would most likely have been alerted to Alstry for an Alstrynomics update. Do be careful here as well. With an average of 4 blogs per day, you must be careful to ensure you are reading the correct alert. If you aren't sure howver, it's not a big deal as they all start to sound the same after a few blogs.
You might also have been directed to Abitare for an equally dire, but more understandable blog.
For equally BEARISH, but not nearly so gloomy news, and often news you should know, you may have been directed to Dwot a long time CAP's favorite who has been bearish, but not bitter.
For ugent Elliot Wave Analysis (EWA) you would have been directed to Goodvibe4Ever's community. Be careful here. Look at the information or guidance, but don't try to understand it unless you have weeks to invest. Should you wish to learn EWT then you would be directed to RussWild a patient teacher with excellent basic tutorials. EWT is very useful, but if you receive an emergency alert, time may be short. Be advised as well that Eliott Wave Analysis in a recession is very volitile. It attempts to predict what may have happened, use archaic Roman Numerals and One, Two, Three, X's (tic-tac-toe), to divine what just happened and then predict what might happen. The odds are that by the time that you find the blog, the information, the swish of the tea grounds, MARs, and the market have moved on, most likely contrary to the prediction, but never fear the 1,2,3, A, B, C's (and X) will be adjusted accordingly.
WARNING. The Goodvibe4Ever community's latest forecasts are often hid in a shroud. You may enter, but be very careful. The CIL is THIRD Dimension where great minds lurk to interpret the charts. There is a mix of astrology, pathology, theology, investology, ETFology, particularly FAS/FAZology, Foolology, etc. To my knowledge there is no Alstryology, so in some regards there is comfort in this third dimension.
For additional EWT you may be directed to Binve while similar to the GV community, the discussion behind the EWT is clear and explained to those who have trouble with their ABC's.
For general Technical Analysis, or interpretation of the trends, you might be directed to Goldminingexpert Goldmining is his specialty, but making market calls is another specialty worthy of a read. Of late GMX has been bearish, with the markets screaming to January 1st levels. While some see this as a natural correction from the overdone March 9th lows, others believe it is too much, too fast, to be healthy and a correction is needed.
For an example of how being Bullish at exactly the right time (March 9th) can be for your portfolio, and an example of a use of bullish ETF's you might have been directed to UltraLong His meteoric rise in three short months to the number 2 CAPs Slot has been a shining example of Market Timing and leveraging ETF's. While the odds of timing the market nearly perfect on a Bull or Bear call is slim, UltraLong just may have done it. Of course some meteors follow set patterns and some come crashing down. Will a bear market extinguish the flame....stay tuned, maybe UltraShort will rise.
For an astrology update, you may have been directed to Kstarich. Gold, Silver, and oil are specialties inclined to drift with the planets in a never ending variety of induced influence.
For a good read, often non-investing, but full of useful info you might have been directed to Mary953. Mary is one of my all time favorites and I learned the most from her when the market was at it's worse. Mary, unfortunately Blogs all to rarely, especially at tax season, but has some great blogs in her archive for new players.
There are many more CAP's players that you might be alerted to in the event of an emergency.
There are many "specialists", such as GMX for miners. Another example is zzlangerhans and aracer for biotechs and pharmaceuticals. When they disagree I have to dig in with DD or stay away. When they agree then look out. (Check out BDSI on Monday). And many others.
Bull, Bear, TA, EWT, Astrology, Specialist Gurus, multi-profile wizards, etc. Please be advised that none of these CAP's players have all (any) of the answers. IN most cases, they are real people behind the facade.
There are many more that you could directed to in an emergency. Please add your favorites and when we should be alerted to them in the comments below.
The CAP's community is the greatest in the world. Any comments above are all in fun. While you may disagree with some, (most, okay all), thier blogs are open for the world. Don't ridicule what you don't understand, start your own alerts blog if you have other views. Add to, take from, give back to, just don't try to break our community. It takes a diverse community to entertain and cover all the investing bases. WE as a community are ready to share our opinions, sometimes very generously and always openly. If an actual SKY is FALLING emergency occurs then you can trust that we have it covered!
TSIF (The SKY isn't Falling).
(My opinion, I have lots of them as well, mostly wrong, but I think this one is correct, although we might get a thunderstorm soon).
