Related?: Dead Fish Cover 20-Miles of Arkansas River

Via: Today’s THV:

Arkansas Game & Fish is trying to figure out why 100,000 fish in Northwest Arkansas turned up dead. They were found along a 20-mile stretch between the Ozark Dam and Highway 109 Bridge in Franklin County.

The 20-mile stretch along the Arkansas River where an estimated 100,000 drum fish were found washed ashore and floating looks much different now.

Keith Stephens with Game and Fish explains, “We got a call last week from a tug boat operator that found the fish out on the river along the bank, in the river channel and we immediately dispatched somebody to the area to take a look.”

Investigators from local and state agencies took samples from the affected area. Stephens says fish kills occur every year, but the magnitude of this one is unusual, and disease could be the cause.

1000? 2000? 5000?

The count is all over the place on this one.

With their vague allusions to Biblical plagues and a classic Hitchcock movie, flocks of dead birds falling from the sky make for an especially gripping whodunnit...

It's probably related to the oil spill.

Vix was interesting today for such a strong point rise

I read/heard a lot of really silly shit the last few days, no need to rehash it all, but I think this, from Neely, would be well worth the consideration right now:

No matter who you are, no matter what approach, technology or system you use, you can only trade in one of three ways...

1. Trend Following (buy on strength, sell on weakness)
2. Top/Bottom Picking (sell into new highs, buy into new lows)
3. Bargain Hunting (buy on pull backs of an uptrend, sell on rallies during a downtrend)

Most people, consciously or subconsciously, pick only ONE of the above three strategies; then, they try to get the market to "behave" and fit their trading style. THAT is the reason most do not consistently make money trading. Each strategy is effective only about 1/3 of the time. When your preferred approach does not fit current market conditions, you will lose money (or breakeven) about 2/3's of the time.

The ONLY way to overcome this problem is to learn to adapt your trading style as the market demands it. This is what NEELY RIVER Trading Technology is all about and why I depend on it to such a great extent for the success of the NEoWave Trading services. Most people fail to realize that a good wave count is NOT enough to trade profitably on a regular basis. You need to know exactly how to place stops based on which trading "style" is most effective in the current environment. If a market is trending, your stops and exits must be different (no matter what the count is) than if the market were in a "bargain hunting" or "top/bottom picking" environment.

So, what is the trading style used in the NEoWave Trading service? If you are a long-term subscriber, you have noticed the style that I use to enter, exit and move stops constantly changes. I'm never stuck in a "trend following" or "bargain hunting" or "top/bottom picking" mentality. My approach changes and evolves as NEELY RIVER conditions tell me they must. This is why my stops, from a wave theory perspective, may frequently not make sense, but usually work anyway.

Andy, just FYI, saw your note on the other thread and wrote short reply. (Basically just "acknowledged".)

Andrew Luck does look pretty good.

Would be nice to see two Houston QBs win the Rose and Orange Bowl.
