From ‘MarketWatch’, close of market, Friday, August 25, 2017. Click ENLARGE and study.


There was a sharp $15 drop on Thursday, August 24, 2017 but as the afternoon wore on buyers piled in and the loss was cut in half. [I just happened to luck out and do a decent option trade, around noon, when it was close to the low of the day. {Smile}].

On Friday it went down all day, albeit not dramatically — just drifted downwards slowly. But, it closes BELOW $950 at a 3-month low.

Yes, it could drift lower. $925 is realistic. But, I don’t think it will go much below that — BUT I could be wrong.

Day ‘MarketWatch’ Says Amazon Is Set To Drop Below 10% It Goes Up 1.43%

by Anura Guruge


LEAD story on ‘Marketwatch’ Tuesday, August 22, 2017. Click image to access original.


Amazon (AMZN) went up $13.61, i.e., 1.43% on that day, i.e., August 22, 2017. Data from ‘MarketWatch’. Click to ENLARGE and view here.


It was pretty AMAZING but I had a hunch that this would be case. Yes, AMZN at $953 was cheap after the recent sell-off.

However, I have to agree that AMZN will go down, quite a bit, before the year is out BEFORE coming STORMING back into the $1,150s! I am writing options even higher that that! {SMILE}

So be CAREFUL. We will see $940, if not lower, before the December 31, 2017 — per my hunch. You have now been officially warned.

10,000th Picture With My Full-Frame Sony a7 II.

I got my full-frame Sony a7 II, from Cameta Camera, on May 10, 2017.

So it has taken me 98-days to take 10,000 pictures. That comes to an average of 102 pictures a day. That is NOT bad.

I did, however, reach the 10,000 mark on my Fuji X-E2s camera, last August, in 76-days! So that was 22-days quicker.

One BIG difference. The Fuji was the only camera I had during that period.

I now have 3 cameras — one of them a brand new Sony a6500.

I have to say that I am extremely impressed and happy with my Sony a7 II. It is one heck of a camera. Best camera I have had … possibly ever!

10,000th Picture With My Fuji X-E2s Camera — In 76 Days!

by Anura Guruge

Attribution WILL be enforced.


Exactly the 10,000th picture shot with my Fujifilm X-E2s.

Filenames have cycled back to ‘DSCF0001’!

I got the camera, from Amazon, on May 18, 2016 — and didn’t start using it until the next day. But, I will take May 18 as my ‘Day 1’ with this camera.

I had had it for 45 days (1 month and 2 weeks) when I shot my 5,000th, picture with it. 

5,000 in 45 days works out to 111.11 pictures a day. If I go with 44 days (which is the real number) it comes to 113.6 pictures a day — and I did NOT miss a single day.

 

I went from 5,000 to 10,000 in 31 days!

This comes out at 131.5 pictures a day.

I am sure there are others that take more pictures a day. But that is a LOT for me.

I am nearly done with this camera. I have had it with Fuji.

But I do NOT feel too bad. 10,833 pictures (since I shot 875 pictures today) is a fair amount. I kind of feel that I have got my monies worth.

Fidelity New Mobile APP Is Definitely More User Friendly & Useful.

by Anura Guruge


fidelitynewapp


I ‘used’ Fidelity’s (much vaunted) new mobile APP on my Lenovo Android 10″ Pad this morning. Sure more welcoming and informative than the old one. I liked it. At least had some useful market data in the opening screens — which was nice.

Easy enough to use. Responsive too. Didn’t use it much or for long — as is my wont. I was just scanning stock prices … SMILE. Not sure (and I could be wrong) whether they have done naything major when it came to the account ‘Positions’ display. I tried to reduce it to see more columns but that didn’t work. That was annoying. When viewing ‘Positions’ I like to see as many columns, if not all, in one go. That they have added a NEW ‘analyst sentiment’ column, with color coded boxes for: very bullish, bullish, bearish & very bearish is NEAT. But that is way over. I would like that on my desktop view too. [Yes, I will call up and request … though nothing will happen. They just ‘yes’ you to death!]

Anywho … not that you will have a choice (since the APP will automatically update) … give the new APP a spin. Definite improvement. And that is always something.

Did You Know That You Can SCAN The Screen Of A Mobile Device — On A Scanner?

by Anura Guruge


Yes, I know that if I can hit the ‘Power’ and one of the volume buttons I could get a screenshot of an Android device. But I have never done it and once I got one I still needed to get it to WordPress (i.e., this blogging platform).

Well a few minutes ago while chatting with a WordPress ‘Happiness Engineer’ about the cropped header on my new Panasonic Lumix ZS100 blog I really wanted a screenshot from my 10.1″ Le Pan so that I could show her what the cropping was like. Occurred to me that I might be able to scan the screen on my scanner! Couldn’t see what real damage it could do. The camera was off so the bright light should not have bothered it. Plus the Le Pan is on its last legs and I will be getting my new 10.6″ Dragon Touch X10 in a FEW minutes! So I tried.

It worked. I did scan in color but it came out b&w. But that was OK. It showed the cropping. So I achieved my goal.

Appears that with the theme I am using, EXPOUND, different types of cropping occurs depending on the size of the end device. On a 6″ header appears FINE with no cropping. On a 10″ the header is cropped! Well, I got around that, but that is another story.

For now the moral of the story is that in a pinch you can get a quick screenshot of a mobile device by scanning the screen on a scanner.

Yes, I know that I could have taken a picture too — with a camera.

I got five of these these 20% off codes as part of the convoluted negotiations that involved me getting a Sony RX100 II (M2) from BuyDig.com last week.

I do NOT need these 5 codes. I actually have a 6th code somewhere and most likely get another next week! Yes, I do a LOT of transactions with BuyDig.com. Plus, if I want $10 off, I will just call and beg for it — and they will give it to me. They know I am a good customer.

So, I will give these 5 codes to you. They told me I could. Friends and family — and anybody who reads this blog, by definition, is a friend.

So IF you want a code just e-mail me. You know how. Hope this helps.
