Dollar Doldrums

By -

Just a reminder that I am beating the drum for folks to test an iPhone app I’ve been developing. Here’s the post in case you missed it.

I’m not really sure what it might mean for equities, but I think the US dollar is going to start really heading south. The dollar index, as shown below, peaked a number of weeks ago. Since then, it has been – – to put it kindly – – sloppy.



Calling All Testers

By -

Well, I’ve dropped more hints about my “project” that a Hollywood agent drops celebrity names, so I might as well come straight out and ask for your help.

I’m looking for people to test a new mobile app I’ve been developing. This app is just one aspect of a new business I’m working on, but it’s a vital one. The requirements for beta users are simple:

  1. You need an iPhone or an iPad with a cellular connection;
  2. You should enjoy getting out and about in your town;
  3. You need to print, sign, and mail in a non-disclosure so that my project is kept secret (please write the email address you use for your iTunes account on the form in the space provided).

Click here to download the non-disclosure agreement.¬†which is a Word document. Mail it in to Tim Knight, 555 Bryant #711, Palo Alto, CA 94301 and I’ll be in touch via email about next steps.

A number of you have already written, expressing interest in testing this mysterious new creation of mine. Now’s your chance! Thank you very much.

We’ll see how today goes, but if triangle resistance holds again today then we will most likely see at least a test of Tuesday’s low at 2083.24. SPX 15min chart:
