You've already been in the rabbit maze - Elliot :-)

In passing nothing on Gann is valid unless you have a consistent scale chart - meaning a hand chart
(unless you know some tech magic I haven't found)
Good trading to all

Al_Dente wrote:$300 Billion Cash Repatriated in Q1, GS Expects Eventual $1Trillion in Buybacks
In the first quarter alone, multinational enterprises brought home about $300 billion of the $1 trillion held abroad, according to a recent Federal Reserve study. A good chunk of that repatriated money went to share repurchases — for the top 15 cash holders, some $55 billion was used on buybacks, more than double the $23 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017.

[add:]
So the buybacks are being done with repatriated cash
?
That's better than debt, right

Source of funds for buybacks is sort of confusing. The difference is if it is taxed by USA or not. Media calls it overseas profits but actually the money is not held in Europe it is here in dollars. It will be interesting to see how much of the untaxed remains at year end.

I still think eventually a lot of debt on the balance sheet will be trouble. Fed Reserve Governor Lael Brainard, who seems to be the one to deliver the really wonky policy speeches as well as being the unofficial co-vice chair said today that they will be inverting the yield curve. So cheap debt will be going away relatively soon. As well as (according to the big boys) earnings increases, so higher interest payments and steadily declining earnings in the future. Then you can ask how that reduced share count is working out when they explain the per share numbers. :twisted:

chatter from the AAPL event:
6.5" iPhone XS Max probably weighs more than Tim Cook.
they think he's wearing triple white Yeezys
XS is the most splendiferous thing on the planet
they haven't announced the price yet...

Couple of interesting stats from Tim Cook:
-Apple Stores now have 500 million visitors per year passing through their doors (not sure if that includes online)
-Apple is "about to" ship its 2 billionth iOS device

Second time in two days I have read this in two different places:
Hindenberg Omen signs: it’s coming, it’s coming.
That’s like saying Christmas is coming. I see signs that Christmas is coming, it’s coming.
“It ain’t a Hindenberg until it’s a Hindenberg” [paraphrasing Al Brooks], and even then it’s 50/50

10yr yield $TNX is approaching 3% (30.00)
Recall the last few times at 3% was “the end of the world”

event is over

Apple's rivals typically sell most of their devices for much cheaper. Samsung's smartphone average selling price totaled $373 in the second quarter, while Huawei's was $278, according to Canalys. But some of the cheaper phones Huawei has launched still have higher-end components.

Twitter Feed says vix smash is what has moved us out of the congestion and into the green, not $400 Apple watches that will tell your kids your heart has stopped.
