ok, so here we can talk and freely express our opinions of the markets.

Ok my feeling is that it looks like we got a major correction on our hands, the FTSE is down 1% and the Dow is likely to open lower, most likely close lower as well.

We should see a correction down to 4550 initially maybe lower, but i think we could see a correction of 10 - 15%.

Bears may be back in town!

You could be right, but just because its October dont mean
a correction is automatic.

How do you figure the AO at 4550?

any one else watching history channel at the moment. they are showing the Bernie Madoff bio. the guy was a complete A-Hole!

I wonder what the penalty would be in the Australian legal system for a guy that all out stole 65 billion.

kind of makes you not want to trust anyone with your $$$

At long last, a bit of good old fashion :eek: volatility returning to the markets, lets hope it's lasts unlike the other false start, anyway how does 4200 sound.

Don't think we will see a retracement just yet, those green shoots have not had enough weed killer yet, but the debt is growing daily.

If there is and I do not have a crystal ball I see support around 4350 - 38% retracement and where there was a small amount of consolidation.

I sure if we all chant together for a retracement it might come true.

Either way I can only trade what is in front of me at the time.

Nun, the truth always come to the surface after alcohol. Give us your wisdom.

Don't wait till you're sober, i take it the banter thread is a free for all. :D

lol .yeah and no i reckon

i think chris has made this thread to actually talk shop but without the constraint of the normal rules in another thread

all things affect the xao/xjo .theres a lot of components , so its good to have a spot to discuss them components without getting pinged for it ( no offense to the moderators). rules are rules after all :D

it would be nice to get reasons for calls or charts or any other thoughts to do with the perceived directions ppl post .

just nice to have a thread where they may be a lot more leeway may be allowed when a discussion takes off on its own direction as they so often do on this forum

I'd think we'd need some bad news to really push 10%-15% correction,

given a 10-15% correction would be a bigger move than a 10-15% correction a couple of months ago.

seems mostly like a breather/taking profits, given that the news wasnt all that bad last night considering the 3% fall.

I'd never trust anyone with my money anyway, regardless of Madoff's antics.
i'm referring to my parents... shady, real shady.

and of course i never trust anybody with anything, especially my money. maybe thats whay I live alone on a farm in the middle of nowhere....

If this thread is just going to be people making unsupported assertions and chatting at random about things unrelated to the thread topic then you might as well take it to the live chat room because that's where this sort of chatter belongs.

Joe, the thread title is XAO Banter thread.
Doesn't it serve the purpose of allowing a little light hearted comment stuck away on its own which can be easily avoided by those wanting only the serious commentary on the XAO in other threads?

If Solly can have a frivolous general chat thread, I can't quite see why this one doesn't fulfil a similar purpose.

I don't mean to be argumentative or difficult, but am just a bit puzzled on this.

Has anyone thought to make a DOW/XAO Thread as they serve hand in hand. The dow is a good indicator on where the xao is heading,People will argue we don't follow the dow,and we have decoupled from it,But ive traded for the past 6 years now and used the dow as a good guide on where we are heading.Hmm as the dow currently a 132 points down in the futures.Points to a change in momentum and the xao will follow,question is will 4525 hold up on the xao when trading resumes.

Julia,

I guess what I was saying is that I think the chat room is more suited to random "banter". That's its purpose after all.

That said I will let it run and hope for the best.

personally think it will take a lot more than bad jobless numbers to set this correction snowball into motion a proper yet.......

im finding it hard to read anything more than short term currently tho
