I see Barrons, Forbes and IBD have stories (behind paywalls) that mention the Evergrande story is affecting the crypto market currently.

Most of those crew members are low paid labor from places like Malaysia, China, the Balkans, and places like that.

I suspect the crews don't spend much time off of the ships when in port, as they are only in port for something like 18-hours at the most if the port is modern and productive.

The labor contracts on many of these vessels don't give them much time off like US flag carriers who operate under US labor rules do. I suspect a shipping company like Maersk requires vaccinations.

The ship crews are typically young and lean, so they are not at high risk for severe outcomes from Covid-19.

It's something a shipper should take into consideration, but it's nothing like the risk on cruise ships.

The wealth management products in China are a problem, and things like Evergrande expose them.

Tampa Bay Bucs have scored 30 or more points in their last 9 games, which has never happened in NFL history.

The SPX and NDX are getting into the range that the DAX and CAC were at today, -2.3% to -3% on the day.

Dry bulk cargo ships spend many more days than containerized but true most crew stay onboard. They are not allowed to, in most cases, disembark by local/international laws even if they want to. Still, what happens on ships doesn't always stay on ships.

IVPAF had been almost continuously above the 100dma since June 2020, climbing even when the other copper miners started declining. Now touching the 200dma. Copper is now at the bottom of its channel. schrts.co

I began buying at $7.3 (the 100dma), and added equal-$ buys on down (latest at $6.49). If copper goes below $4, and IVPAF’s 200dma fails, I will increase the spacing between buy-prices. On upmoves, I will sell my higher-priced shares at 7-8$.

Here is why aluminum will not replace copper:

Copper price:
4.12 now
2.10 5y low
+96% = trough to today

Aluminum price:
2860 now
1420 5y low
+101% = trough to today tradingeconomics.com

Thanks AJ,

Time to be patient.

I only have one sold put this month.

I sold an XOM 55 put for 3.20. If assigned, my net purchase price would be $51.80.

$3.48/$51.80 = 6.718%. I'll take it. If thhe market let's me. 25 days off.

We See.

Bob

Dug this $SPX chart out of old spot in my folders that I forgot about, and updated it over the weekend.

It is the usual OHLC but on bottom I have Up/Down% advancing/declining volume calculated and plotted. IOW which of the two on a daily basis is greater. For instance today, currently, 92.09% of total volume is declining volume. This used to make comparisons to past days/weeks to see if move is genuine or not.

We are getting pretty close to 50 quickly on BHP . I track RIO, BHP, and GOLD, and will start to track them more closely, hope they get even lower for a longer term buy.
