WannaBe: Err... This tournament starts July 22, and that means no game(s) yet, as the opening ceremony have not been held. The tournament site's time zone is different than time zone.

Munch ado about nothing.

  thegoodanarchist: < keypusher:

But the problem, as I understand it, is that there is so much money in index funds that they are beginning to distort the market, and when the crash comes a lot of people are going to panic.>


Accumulate dry powder. There will be a time in the next few years to go bargain hunting in the S&P 500.

Maybe sooner! Dispersion in market internals not looking good.

  WannaBe: <thegoodanarchist> Good Luck in Reno!! Put $2 on the Hard 13 for me. =))
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: That's bad advice <Wannabe> is giving you. Here's the real deal: When someone is coming out place a heavy bet on hard-way 8. That's the best little bet in town.

  thegoodanarchist: Outstanding day today at the craps tables. Up $800 and I walked with it.

Also the Reno Aces are at home and I saw the Wednesday game against Tacoma.

The visitors took an early lead with 2 runs in the top of the first, but the Aces took the lead for good with 4 in the fifth, including a three-run homer.

Game ended with a Tacoma batter striking out, and a final score of 6-3.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <thegoodanarchist> Cool beans, when I stay at Harrah's sometimes I get a room that looks right at the Aces' field. =)

There is a Pho Noodle place right across the street (next to the liquor store) that's pretty good and cheap.

Else you can walk to Club CalNeva for some cheap food, too!!

Be there in 2 month for football kick-off. Pai-Gow table, here I come. Wheeeeeee.

Remember what happened to SFG last year!??!

  WannaBe: This is 'cute'. I read that Snapchat (SNAP) have closed Monday's trading $16.95 below IPO price $17.00 Some have speculated that is because the lock out period's ending soon.

So, I got curious and wondering how long a lock out period is for IPO stocks. Turns out it varies, anywhere from 90 to 180 days.

And also it's (fairly) common for the price of the stock to fall and volume of trading to go up first day after lock out expiration. (Early investors want to cash in their chips and collect some profit!!)

And this lock out period is not SEC rule, it's company and the under writing bank(s) that determine how long it is. (Did not know that...)

So I learned all that from this article:

Funny thing is, (if you didn't read the article), the first day after lock out ended, FB fell to a low of $19.69 which was about <HALF> the initial IPO price! Half!?

Oh, today, FB closed at $153.50, aren't you glad you sold shares to get IPO profit? =))
