    So, I am trying to post a chart, as I frequently do, but Teck Talk will not post my chart. Why?

  2. Ana Says:

    Please reply to my question, Teck Talk, why will you not post my charts?

    Why do I have to try many times before you post my comments?

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    Ana
    It’s a conspiracy. And just because you’re paranoid that doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you. But what do I know. I’m still homeless for awhile.
    Actually the problem must be electronics. Nothing more finicky than that. Tomorrow we have a Best Buy tech coming out to my partners place to sincroniz our new TV remote and cable remote as most of the time the TV just doesn’t work right. Electronics can drive you crazier than an out house rat.

    #3. Ron/BC

    Yes, I might be paranoid.

    Why are you homeless?

    I thought you would be singing to your partner,
    “I’d buy a big house where
    We both could live.”

    I also had another chart indicating the small head and shoulders on a shorter time frame inside that large triangle formation.

    Oh well, other day traders could probably see it too.
