Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat has the last laugh
By Colin Freeman
Last Updated: 3:01pm GMT 19/01/2008

He was the strange television reporter from the country no-one had never heard of, and they were the unsuspecting Americans who helped him in his quest to learn the ways of the West.

The residents of a Romanian village have already sued over being depicted as inbred peasants in Baron Cohen's film.
Now, having mercilessly lampooned his interviewees in his film Cultural Learnings of America for make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakstan, spoof newsman Borat Sagdiev is having the last laugh over those who failed to see the joke.

A US court has thrown out a lawsuit against Borat’s creator, the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, brought by one of his unwitting victims - who says she was left embarrassed and humiliated after being duped into appearing in the movie.

The claim was filed by Kathie Martin, an etiquette tutor from Birmingham, Alabama, who attempted to teach the apparently sexist and bigoted Kazakh some modern American manners.

As the resulting film footage showed, the task of turning Borat into a Southern gentleman was doomed to failure: in the movie, he proudly shows her . . .

Free Chapter Tuesday-- Gann Simplified

This week’s free chapter is from Gann Simplified by Cliff Droke. Be sure to check back next Tuesday!


Gann’s Chart-Reading Technique

Gann was a big believer in using financial charts to judge the soundness of common stocks and commodities. “All of the information that affects the future price of [stocks and commodities] is contained in its fluctuations and you need nothing more than its record of prices,” he used to say. Most of his work was based around various ways of interpreting the chart, and without it, his forecasting success would have been largely impossible.

Momentum EA

Momentum EA Puts Up Shocking Numbers
Submitted by Jason Fielder on April 1, 2010 – 9:05 pmNo Comment.

Every once in a while, I have what I’d like to call a “moment of clarity”. Recently, I was thinking about how to use what MetaTrader has already given us (in the way of indicators) to build a complete system with. As I was thinking about what indicators to put together to logistically create a new system, I thought to myself — “why not make a system simply with two of the SAME indicator?”. Thus, the “Momentum Cross” system was born. As it was being coded and tested by my system developers and myself, I didn’t know what to expect. The results shocked me, and I felt like I just HAD to share it with all of you.

As some of the other trading labs, the rules to this system are relatively simple as well. I only use one indicator, but I use two of them (with different settings):

#1 - Momentum indicator with the setting of “1″ on Close price
#2 – Momentum indicator with the setting of “8″ on Close price
NOTE: For the long and short examples below, when I say “#1 momentum indicator” and “#2 momentum indicator”, look at the above #1 and #2 for reference.

For a long: The #1 momentum indicator is currently GREATER than the #2 momentum indicator. The previous candle must have the #1 momentum indicator SMALLER than the #2 momentum indicator. So, as soon as they cross on the current candle, if the current candle is a LONG candle (current close is above current open), then go long as soon as the 2 indicators cross.

For a short: The exact same entry rules for a long (#1 momentum indicator going above #2 momentum indicator on THIS candle, etc.). Except, if the current candle is a SHORT candle (current close is below current open), then go short as soon as the 2 indicators cross.

It seems odd and awkward to have 2 different momentum indicators, and having to compare the values on each tick. So, to make things easier, we took the liberty of the “weekly indicator” to build you a FXI-MomentumCross indicator!! This will allow you to have a MACD-style indicator that is simply the 2 momentum indicators on top of one another. Check the weekly indicator for this week if you would like this indicator (optional to run this system, not required).

When I tested this, I tested 2 different variables:

1) Left the “fast” Momentum indicator at 1, but tested the “slow” Momentum indicator (everything from 3 to 10). The “8″ setting was consistently best, so ALL the tests were run with a “1″ in the fast momentum setting, and a “8″ in the slow momentum setting.
2) Tested the stop loss and take profit, at a 1 to 1. On the hour, tested everything from 20 to 60. On the 4H, tested everything from 50 to 150. And on Daily, everything from 50 to 300.

We tested on both a short term timeframe (everything from December 2009 to present date), and a long term timeframe (everything from January 2007 to December 2009). Check the results in the video below to see me walk through how this system performed, and what to look for.

Bulls keep the faith in Check Point

Bulls keep the faith in Check Point

Bulls keep the faith in Check Point
March 15, 2010 Mon 12:05 AM CT

Check Point Software keeps rallying higher, and the bulls aren't losing faith yet.

optionMONSTER's tracking systems detected the sale of about 5,000 July 32.50 puts for $0.90, pushing volume in the strike to nearly three times open interest. The trade reflects confidence in the software company, which would have to lose 9 percent of its value through expiration for the investor to lose money.

CHKP rose 0.17 percent to $34.76 on Friday and is up 6 percent in the last month. The maker of data-security products has been climbing steadily along with bullish options activity in the past year. It's now trading at its highest levels since March 2002.

The trader may have chosen the 32.50 strike to write the puts because it's close to the $30 level where the shares found support last month after correcting lower.

The transaction follows a similar transaction on Feb. 25, when an investor sold October 30 puts to earn premium. The activity reflects an expectation CHKP will hold its ground and implied volatility will decline, eroding the value of the options sold short.

A straddle was also written in December, which follows the same pattern.

Implied volatility has been steadily waning in CHKP and now stands at the lowest level in at least three years.

nine months' hard labour

Kylie Minogue's ancestors lived in Thornbury and worked on Bristol trams
Monday, February 01, 2010, 07:00

Australian pop star Kylie Minogue's roots have been traced all the way back to the town of Thornbury, but her relatives were not all quite so well behaved.

The ever-popular singer's great-great grandfather appeared at Thornbury Magistrates' Court 120 years ago on charges of indecent assault, reports in a national newspaper have claimed.

Morgan Riddiford lived in the village in the 1890s, with his widowed mother Sarah and two sisters, according to the genealogy website Findmypast.com.

Born in 1875, he was brought before the South Gloucestershire court when he was just 16 years old, along with 18-year-old co-defendant William Sainsbury.

Court records in the National Archives show the pair pleaded guilty to an indecent assault on 14-year-old Mary Ann Tandy.

They were charged with "beating, wounding, ill-treating and doing other wrongs to her".

Riddiford and Sainsbury appeared before Mr Justice Mathew at Gloucestershire Assizes in November 1890, who sentenced Miss Minogue's ancestor to nine months' hard labour in Gloucester prison.

The court was told that the pair had been out following a group of girls in Thornbury with a third boy, 14-year-old William Smart, one Sunday evening.

Mary, who was one of the three girls being followed, was in the service of local farmer John Clarke. When the boys set upon Mary, her father Lewis heard the screams and ran to investigate.

Smart fled the scene but later gave evidence about his two friends, the court records show.

After his release from prison, Riddiford moved to Bristol to work as a tram inspector, and married a local girl, also called Mary.

According to the 1901 census, he lived in Bristol when he was 26.

The Minogue dynasty moved to Australia when Kylie's grandmother Millie Jones emigrated from Maestag, South Wales, years later.

Millie's daughter Carol Jones married Ron Minogue and had three children.

Kylie would go on to star in the Australian soap Neighbours before selling 68 million records in her hugely successful pop career.

She was awarded the OBE for services to music in 2008.

Her sister Dannii is one of the judges on The X Factor talent show programme.

Minogue sisters` convict past unveiled - Monsters and Critics

Minogue sisters` convict past unveiled

Minogue sisters` convict past unveiled - Monsters and Critics: "Minogue sisters` convict past unveiled

Aussie pop-princess, Kylie Minogue was pictured smiling for photographers as she left her West London apartment to go to a recording studio. - Earl/Clements/Splash NewsBy Philippa Bourke Jan 27, 2010, 1:15 GMT

The Minogue family tree came to light on January 26, Australia Day.

The lineage of the talented sisters who were discovered in Australia but have found fame and happiness in the UK was revealed to be a mix of both countries.

The Daily Telegraph in Sydney claims the discovery of a convict relative will have the British in a state of glee. A census from the year 1891 showed the sisters' great-grandfather Morgan Riddiford was a convict at HM Prison Gloucester in England.
The same search turned up the name of their mother, Carol Jones, on passenger lists from a 1950s emigration program. Jones was born in Wales and moved to Australia at age 12 with her parents. She sailed on a £10 ticket in 1955 to start a new life in the Antipodes.

Jones married Ron Minogue before settling down in Melbourne, Victoria. Kylie said: 'People come up to me and tell me they think I'm more British than the British. I've lived here [in the UK] for more than 10 years and I feel totally at home – though in my heart I'll always be an Aussie.'

The addition of another Minogue was recently revealed with the announcement of Dannii Minogue's pregnancy to British football player turned model Kris Smith. The child, she has already vowed, will be born Down Under."

S. Collins buy on GLD

Don't Miss the 2010 Gold Rush
by Sam Collins 01/11/10

SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) -- This exchange-traded fund (ETF) seeks to mirror the price of gold bullion.

As early as April 9, 2009, at $86.33, I put GLD's target at $125. On Dec. 3, GLD rose to a high of over $119.

Now, with gold trading at $1,139 an ounce, with an end-of-the-year target of $1,300 from S&P, our original target of $125 seems to be achievable.

Buying now could result in a healthy profit as buyers rotate back into gold.

Fair Use Day


AALL's Washington Blawg

Coverage of First Annual World’s Fair Use Day
Posted: 14 Jan 2010 12:09 PM PST

The First Annual World’s Fair Use Day (WFUD) took place on January 12 here in Washington, D.C. in a free event produced by Public Knowledge. It included discussions with artists, documentary filmmakers, lawyers, activists and musicians interested in celebrating and supporting the concept of Fair Use for artistic and cultural expression. This was a unique way to hear about projects employing fair use topics from the people who created them. Examples of speakers include:

Irish artist Dan Walsh who created “Garfield Minus Garfield“, an almost existential reworking of the Garfield comic strip
Chris Burke, producer, This Spartan Life, which uses video content from video games like Halo for an entertaining talk show
Musician DJ Earworm who creates music mashups combining the top Billboard songs of the year, which also appear on his YouTube channel
In addition to talking to creators, the event highlighted legal and policy work in this area, such as the work of the Center for Social Media at American University and their efforts in various areas of best practices. At the lunch talk, Professors Peter Jaszi (American University) and Anthony Falzone (Stanford Center for Internet and Society) responded to audience questions surrounding fair use topics. Even in discussing failed defenses in a fair use case involving a Harry Potter Lexicon, Professor Jaszi sees positive developments. He called this a victory for fair use, saying that the federal court’s decision should help refine judicial tests for fair use factors, especially in the Second Circuit. For instance, he says that loss of licensing revenue is gone from the factor analysis here.

Look to Rebecca Tushnet’s blog for a detailed summary of the entire event: Part One | Part Two. You can also read a Wrapup on TechDirt, and all recordings from the events will be online at WFUD.info.

Mark your calendars for January 2011 for next year’s event.

Collins call on NFLX

Cozy Up to Netflix

ShareThis Tweet This
Free Trading Guides

Netflix (NFLX) -- This provider of online movie rental subscription services in the United States has been in a bull market since November 2008, when it double-bottomed below $19.

Since then, the stock broke through a double-top in January 2009, which launched it not only to a new high, but confirmed a long-term triple-top breakout.

Recent profit-taking has pulled it back from the high of $61.65, but any weakness should be viewed as a buying opportunity.

Investors may wish to take a half position now, and then a full position if NFLX pulls back below $50.

The target for traders is $67, but long-term investors could see much higher prices.

TT(VCM?) Recomendation - NG

The Technical Setup: Team Trading buy setup (VBS). NG has been in an uptrend most of this year. A sharp pullback at the beginning of December, after making a new daily high, tested the five dollar support area. The next rally rocketed to test the prior high, with a bullish wide range bar (+WRB). This pullback has four red bars, a 50% retracement, and is right to the rising 20 period moving average. Friday, the stock gapped bullishly over the prior small red bar, triggering the buy setup. We will look for follow through to that move.

The Play: Traders can buy NG as a swing trade over 6.17, with a protective stop under 5.80. We will look for targets of 6.79 and 7.49.

Sam Collins calls Buy on GDX


Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) -- This exchange-traded fund (ETF), which attempts to replicate the price and yield performance of the Amex Gold Miners Index, is in a bull market with the bull market support line at $44 and the 200-day moving average at $42.

This has been a very successful trading stock for the "Trade of the Day." After initially recommending traders take a half position, our last comment on Nov. 4, with the stock trading at $46.64 was, "A full position could be initiated below $40. The trading target remains unchanged at $50 to $55."

The stock didn't pull back to $40, but did run to $55.40.

Now GDX appears to be in buying range again after a healthy round of profit-taking and a reversal off of its major bull market trendline, coupled with a stochastic buy signal.

The trading target, for GDX is $52, but crises or renewed inflation could result in much higher prices.
