Occasionally I'll run across a claim that a stock "bounced" or "found support" off a 10-week moving average or a 30-week moving average, etc. And while some stocks do appear to do that, I have to wonder if it's only a coincidence when it happens. What say the MT stock pros? ...

| Political Talk|| Honestly, I thought the debate over free markets was over - RidiculousHype on 12/5/13 at 7:57 am|
But apparently there are still people who believe, despite the overwhelming evidence, that the free market is not clearly the greatest economic system man has ever devised.
First it was that "income inequality" video that "went viral" last year - a real nice piece of propaganda. I just shook my ...
| Money Talk|| Gold? - RidiculousHype on 12/4/13 at 7:53 pm|
Gold has been a popular short of late, with $DUST making huge gains the last few weeks. But the spot price is about to hit a double bottom of $1200 last reached in June. Question now is does it keep falling below that level of support or does it bounce hard and resume the long term up-trend (looking...
| More Sports Board|| Crack in the FSU armor? - RidiculousHype on 12/2/13 at 10:46 am|
I noticed they had only modest success running the ball vs. Florida, with 4.0 yards per carry. Florida's run D vs:
LSU 4.5 ypc
UGA 4.5 ypc
SCar 4.7 ypc
Mizzou 5.5 ypc
If FSU has to play the SEC champ, and they become 1-dimensional, they may not be as dominant as they've looked. And I have...
| SEC Rant|| I can't believe we're even having this discussion - RidiculousHype on 12/2/13 at 9:05 am|
About whether a Big 10 Champ should get in ahead of an SEC Champ. I don't care that one might have a loss and the other might not.
Have people forgotten that the SEC has won the last 7 national championships? The man vs. boys "game" between Bama and ND last year; an ND team that had already b...
| SEC Rant|| Ark fans: 2 questions and a comment - RidiculousHype on 12/1/13 at 12:08 pm|
Q1. Over the years it always seems like LSU is the more talented team but Ark plays us better than expected. From your point of view does it seem like no matter the talent/records disparity that you play LSU tougher than you play other SEC teams?
Q2. If yes to the above do you think the timing of...
| Tiger Rant|| Make your predictions now: Which of the following mobile QB elements - RidiculousHype on 11/25/13 at 7:46 am|

B) Shotgun zone read
C) Under center speed option
D) Play action/bootleg

| Political Talk|| Obama's performance in the 1st Debate was a foreshadowing - RidiculousHype on 11/18/13 at 2:43 pm|
of his performance in his 2nd term. He is disinterested, disengaged, possibly depressed. His press conference last week reminded me a lot of that Denver debate. He shouldn't have sought a 2nd term if he didn't want the job. I think he spent his whole political life climbing to that next job up a...
| SEC Rant|| Is Auburn the worst 10-1 SEC team in history? - RidiculousHype on 11/18/13 at 2:09 pm|
Don't get me wrong, being 10-1 in the SEC is elite status.

I've read in a few places that the Obamacare disaster is going to pave the way for single-payer, or even that it was intentional to get us to single-payer. I'm here to tell you that nothing could be further from the truth.
The American people, relative to the rest of the world, is inherently dis...

If there is a buyer for every seller, then how is wealth actually created?

But is this wealth creation? I mean I could buy a taco for $2.5...

Almost every chain restaurant started as a local mom 'n pop. They had to have done something right in order to grow and expand nationwide.
There are some bad chain restaurants out there. And over time they decline and die. Market forces at work.
Local can be great too. But I'm not one to...

A discussion came up in a now-anchored thread about whether single payer would or would not be a break from U.S. economic philosophy.
The U.S. has largely been a free market, capitalist nation throughout most of its history, and much more so than most other nations. To be sure, the New Deal and ...

Carney often refers reporters to departments within the executive branch. I've heard him refer reporters to HHS, Treasury, State, etc.
Does every administration do this? Carney is the White House spokesman, but if he refers questions to all these other departments, then what is left for him t...
