I really meant to post this update over the weekend so obviously it’s not going to have the impact as this stock spiked over 4% today, but I think there’s more upside in this one to be had. Technically it has a very clear channel forming and it should have no problem getting back to the upper trendline. Low float of 22 million will surely add to the volatility but I think there’s a much better chance of this going over $37 then revisiting $32. The RSI has been behaving bullishly as it oscillates between 80-40.  20% of the float is short so as this moves higher many of those shorts could be forced to cover which again could add to the upside move. Keep your eye on this for follow through after today’s move as this thing could just be getting started.

Annual EPS (BNRI)

I want to thank one of our subscribers, for bringing to my attention the latest alert from conspiracy writer Benjamin Fulford-July 7, 2014

Read the full article here

The video presentation of Christine Lagarde in the article is presented as an occult message to the power elite using numerological theories.  In the video she presents the number 7 in multiple date sequences.  In my view the entire presentation is comical and has nothing to do with anything, except to confuse people who follow Fullford.  The purpose was a distraction from the real number sequences that will materialize instead on August 10th with Mars at 8 degrees 23 minutes Scorpio and with Venus transiting the same position in October.   I wrote an article on Easter 2013 illustrating the combinations of number grids that were present in astrological planetary transits that coincided with the October 1929 stock market crash, the attacks on 911, the stock market crash of 2008, bank failures, war and the confiscation of gold.  The numbers 8 with 23 are significant along with the numbers 911.  The number 8 in numerology is know as the number for wealth and 23 is the number for man and his DNA.  The shocking events mentioned above all coincided with planets transiting 8 degrees and 23 minutes of a sign.

George Bush Sr. announced the New World Order for the first time on 9/11/90 and it was on 8/23/11 that gold fell from a high of $1911.  It was on 8/23/01, just 19 days before the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings on 911, when Jupiter was transiting 8 degrees 23 minutes Cancer (Jupiter 8 degrees 23 minutes on 8/23/01) when CIA director George Tenet receives a briefing about Zacarias Moussoui titled “Islamist Extremist learns to Fly”.

Bank Failures, Gold, And Wealth Confiscation

  • Stock market crash October 29, 1929– Uranus 8 degrees 23 minutes Aries.
  • October 1, 2008 Lehman Brothers collapse– Venus (rules assets and money) 8 degrees 23 minutes Scorpio.
  • October 27, 2011 MF Global collapse–Venus 23 degrees 8 minutes Scorpio.
  • August 2, 2012 Knight Capital Group collapses– Uranus 8 degrees 23 minutes Aries.

The next pass of Venus to 8 degrees 23 minutes Scorpio is on October 30, 2014.  I have stressed the potential for volatility and international currency instability beginning near October 7th, 30 days prior to Saturn’s return to 24 degrees Scorpio and the anniversary of the judgement of Peshu Alga mentioned in the Astrology Update: June 1, 2014.

Note to readers: I’ll be away for a few days. The normal detailed options analysis of the S&P 500, and its implications for the stock market, will return Sunday July 27.

As of July 17, the S&P had not breached the 1930 level – an important level because of its effect on Long Call* and Married Put* option trading, and the historical implications those option trades have on the emotions that drive future stock prices. Long Calls and Married Puts won’t suffer losses unless the S&P falls below 1930 over the next several weeks.

Historically, as long as at-the-money Long Calls and Married Puts are profitable, bullish traders are so confident that they buy every dip.

Options Market Stages 07-17-2014

Last Sunday, evidence was presented here that short-term pullbacks in the S&P 500 are not likely to interfere with the ongoing Bull market rally unless the S&P falls below the 1930ish range. A move below would likely create a brick wall of resistance at the recent high, as traders would tend to acquire a “sell the rip” mentality, at least temporarily, after a breach of 1930.

Last Sunday’s complete analysis is available here: Stocks Digesting Gains And Nothing More

As long as the S&P does not fall below 1930 in the next several weeks, any sell-off, no matter the cause, can be argued to be nothing more than normal digestion of recent gains in stock prices. The analysis in the link above continues to apply.

As long as a trader is practicing good risk-management (with proper position sizes, stops, and/or options as hedges) there is no reason to panic, at least until Long Calls fail to profit; and even then, panic is likely unjustified unless Covered Calls fail too.

Unlike many traditional forms of market analysis, the options analyses presented here do not change. They are not affected by economic news, no matter how severe. The consistent view provides traders with a semblance of certainty – something to cling to in uncertain times – which can provide an edge by helping avoid potentially damaging trades based on emotions.

*All strategies involve at-the-money options opened 4 months (112 days) prior to this week’s expiration using an ETF that closely tracks the performance of the S&P 500, such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY)

As individuals and companies rely more and more on mobile communications devices such as smartphones and tablets, so the number of apps that are available has increased, carrying out everything from banking transactions to finding the nearest coffee shop.

Today’s consumers are demanding apps that are well-designed, user-1friendly and perform well. Maximising mobile user experience or ‘ux’ is essential if the app is to achieve its key objectives, which are to generate new business, enable easy access to stored information, and to monitor the progress of transactions in real-time.

Not so long ago, it was only larger financial institutions, such as banks and multi-national investment companies, that could afford to design and implement secure online access software for their clients. However, as the mobile app industry has matured, there are now numerous software development companies specialising in designing reliable, high quality, bespoke, affordable applications with ux at their core.

Today, small investment companies that fail to develop an app for mobile devices across multiple platforms will find themselves at a serious disadvantage. It has never been easier to acquire a bespoke app designed to source new investment opportunities and monitor existing investments in real time, from almost anywhere in the world and at any time of the day or night.

The first step for small investment firms that decide to introduce a mobile app is to identify a company they can work closely with to design and develop the most effective solution. A quick search of the internet will reveal literally dozens of app developers, so it will be necessary to spend some time checking out which areas they specialise in and obtaining a list of previous customers who are prepared to provide references. Ideally, speak to friends or business colleagues who have employed such companies in the past.

A software development company such as Worry Free Labs, LLC will first ascertain precisely what type of customer experience is required. In the case of investment companies, the app user is likely to be a ‘hunter’- someone looking for specific information or to carry out a predetermined task. (more…)
