Three Days of Combobulation
Friday was holiday - Siches Toire, then Shabbes and in the evening we went to the Roman Anfitheater of Beit Govrin, some flamenco show with choripanes and empanadas. The place is nice and cool, but the guitarrists - a disaster. Today I spent two hours in the bank and investing, then a Client called me desperate that the plt file I sent to printing could be opened and he wanted to submit it today in Lodim. I spent the whole day trying to solve the problem, till my friend Arch. Ram Segal told me to check the kind of printer they had... It was discovered that they have an old HP 750 C that is unable to open more advanced files. I started to download the antique driver but later checked an old computer and there it was. I resent the file but by then, 5 PM, the printshop was closed. A day gone.
Once more I have some spare money to invest, and searched for something speculative. I frequent several bursa forums (forii) and got the idea of TAO Warrant 6 from Soher Yom (Day Trader), a prominent participant in our chats. Israeli forums are very friendly, the tone is respectful and helpful, and I found that there are local gurus who impart their knowledge freely and honestly. Not like American forums, where people are aggressive and insulting. So this Daytrader person explained me why he expected a "pritza" (outbreak) and that he himself bought at 25 shekel. The price was already 27 and rising, I spent an hour trying to talk to the bank to order a purchase, but my trader happens to be on vacations. A girl did the buying for me at 27.5 and it ended the day at 29.5. The Daytrader commented that I should operately directly inthe bursa with my computer. Tower lost height in today's trade, it was a correction or profit taking, or the stock changed direction. All in all, the portfolio sensibly finished higher, paying the bottle of red Pinot Noir wine I am going to open now. L'Haim, Sahkan Yom!
