I noted with interest the handover of Iraq back to Iraqis occurred 15
months from the invasion date - half of 30. Sept next year is 30 months
from march 03, so you can bet news will come out at this time that is
relevant to Iraq. Would not at all be surprised for example if on this
date the former President was sentenced or executed for example.
Emotions will run to time frames. Note the handover was two days early
and timed in with the degree count of Jan 27.
Rates adjusted up slightly in the US - we had the perverse situation
there whereby if that had not been done, the market would probably have
been a bit upset and tanked for a few days. The market knows the fed is

Berlusconi, Italy's richest man - and he's the PM - wants more immigration

assuming history repeats - and this maybe a big assumption - (but i

building has in the past ALWAYS opened in recession, or very close to
it. Corner stone has been laid - 60 months is a good time frame for

coh > 23.80 (probable takeover bid coming if that happens soon)
plenty of breaks coming now
Azaria just keeps coming back to haunt us - well we are a year short of

for the Azaria date chronology
date when the inquest started, and then the first finding on feb 20, to
the day of the disappearance for interesting numbers
2nd inquest at 70 weeks
2nd trial at 108 weeks

This may be last email for a while - plenty of study now. See how the
china thing caused the mid point retr. on many stocks. Mkts are in a
bull phase, so there will be more of this along the way. Two key times
to watch for significant new highs, then a retr, are Aug 6 and Jan 15
