      I love your breaking fundamental analysis.

      I would post it as market analysis at Forex Factory breaking news. They would love it, as they loved my story about Greece. LOL. I made that joke :).

      lol john,whats ur joke,i wanna hear

      thanks jaguar

      people dont look at small things,they think that they are not worthy their time,but thats the reality of the debt crisis,when u buy,ur mostly buying from a shop that still hasnt paid for the goods,theyll pay for them when they get the money from us,but what people dont want to buy the goods,u have extra inventory,depreciating assets,expiry date is closing soon,u have to put the price down,so when u pay the supplier,u will prob be late and charged interest on ur debts,so all the little profit that the boss was supposed to make gets killed,

      in an armageddon crisis this will come true,but i dont see any of that down under,nz and aus just released rising retail sales 2.5%

      maybe usa and greece,i even doubt germany will be into a shit like this,

      john good that u reminded me before of that new media has to make news to survive,otherwise if we dont watch their crap they wont make profit,

      u2 live in europe,have u been experiencing a crisis as they say in the media,

      Anyway I am not certain that is good idea. Because:

      http://code.google.com/apis/predict/docs/general_discussion_forum.html

      The question was:

      "Hello,

      I've just came by Prediction API which is something of a great interest to me. I run a company which focus on this kind of solutions, supplying clients with prediction/recomendation systems. Thus, I'd love to ask a few questions.

      Actually the quality of training/prediction is still not amazing. Training process doesn't accept any parameters other than learning data itself so I am wondering what algorithms do you use (SVMs, neural networks, Bayesian networks)? You must be using some implicit learning parameters - how about exposing them to public in order to make learning more efficient?

      I will keep an eye on this interesting project. Hopefully I might be of some help."

      The answer was:

      "The Google Prediction API auto-tunes its parameters to give the best results for your specific model, so you have less up-front work to do. Regarding the algorithms, we are constantly evaluating and improving their type, extent and performance so we don't comment publicly on the specific algorithms used by the prediction API.

    Meeting lots of interesting folk here in NY and one well-informed person told me this afternoon that one of the PIIGS central banks is busy, 24/7, printing their old currency notes again (just in case).

      Dow Jones News

       By Stephen L. Bernard 
       Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES 
       

      NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Goldman Sachs introduced a new recommendation Friday to buy euros against the dollar.

      Goldman's Thomas Stolper suggests buying the euro with an initial target of $1.40 as European policy makers appear to have made progress in recent days toward reducing near-term uncertainties. Greece naming Lucas Papademos as its new prime minister and Italy moving toward a new government headed by Mario Monti are encouraging signs, Stolper writes in a note.

      The euro was at $1.3735 in late morning trading in New York, from $1.3617 late Thursday, according to EBS via CQG.

      Goldman has set a narrow stop on the recommendation at $1.35.
