Yep, I can't even look any more. I'm just sitting around watching reruns of Andy's Gang.

Well, I removed the post as much as I could, just because I don't need the BS. Art G has been banned from the forum, and I was trying to put some perspective out there. Hopefully this area of the forum doesn't become like the Soapbox........

FD don't stop posting here, I really think you add reason to the posts on this forum, and I found your post of NEOG a very interesting company.

other than some technical analysis, if you look at a chart of any of the indexes you'll see that it's a huge day with a very low intraday low and a nice rally off that low on HUGE volume. on a 3 year chart at stockcharts it seems like the highest volume of the last 3 years.

days like this are historically reversal days where the pro's start getting back in while the retail investors start selling.

Or...it could be a "Dead cat bounce", or a "sucker rally".........

Realize that what you hear about the market in these pages does not go very far toward dispelling that mystery.

Maybe Suze Orman can dust off her "crystals" and give us a reading for the times ahead. I recall CFB made a lot of important decisions using his Magic 8 Ball..........

With respect to confidentiality, I think there is a difference between a fund manager who has $500MM AUM and a smaller investment advisor who might only have 30 or 40 clients. I don't know which situation FD falls into, it's up to him to decide what is in his clients' best interests. He can post what he wants.

My point was just that...even if I were not named, I would not want my doctor sharing information with a bunch of non-doctor strangers on what ailments he was currently treating (if my treatment was included). I wouldn't want my lawyer talking about his current case load with non-laywer strangers (if my case was among them). And I would expect the same sort of confidentiality from my financial advisor as well.

Soup, with all due respect. I don't get what you're saying. How would anyone be able to put this together and know they're talking about you.

You are correct, you don't who I am, how many clients I have, what my AUM is, and its none of your business, frankly. As far as confidentiality rules, I haven't violated any, other than what your sense of confidentiality is.

Since you don't have an FA, your expectations of what you would do if you had one are just that......hypothetical. You can always put me on ignore or contact me via PM rather than drag this out in the open. The fact that you chose to do neither is YOUR issue, but I guess I should have expected it.........

I would be willing to bet, all the above happens quite often.

Surely, you had the laptop with you under the blanket, in order to take a peek at the forum to do some moderator edit?

Not only does it happen all the time, there's nothing wrong with it, and no breach of confidentiality. I do remember that much from the HIPAA class. However, if you are truly this paranoid about it (and this is the pot calling the kettle black), you should request this level of confidentiality from each of your professional service people directly, and probably in writing. Of course, that would just guarantee that at the next barbecue your doctor would be saying "can you believe what this one patient of mine did?".

Get a confidentiality statement from your doctor/lawyer/fa's spouse too
