Trade indexes not individual stocks - Indexes generally have much lower volatility than individual stocks and for this reason, I rarely use this strategy on individual stocks. Using FFIV as a recent example, on one particular day, there was a negative news report and the stock dropped about 20%. While possible, it is incredibly rare that you would see an index fall by this much in a single day, but it occurs more regularly with individual stocks especially tech or small caps stocks. The bid-ask spread is also lower for indexes meaning you sport wristbands are not suffering a liquidity premium. Cold Souls: Rated for PG-13 for nudity and brief strong language. 97 mins.

Fishing is another popular pastime in Lorne. Beach fishing can be good but most anglers seem to prefer the Lorne pier where you can catch just about anything. Whiting and Flathead are a common catch and in winter you can get on to a school of Snapper. Squid can also be caught by jigging at the end of the pier. If you don"t have any luck there is no need to worry because the local fishing co-op is right near the pier and they do very good fish and chips. Wherever your Labor Day weekend plans take you, be careful on the road. Holiday traffic will be heavy and there"s construction around town and across the state.

BEIJING - A meeting was held in Beijing Sunday to celebrate the 70th founding anniversary of the People"s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy, which falls on April 23.

Participants to the meeting reviewed the PLA Navy"s history of developing from almost nothing to becoming strong, summarized its experiences on combat, reform, transformation, and military struggle preparedness, and looked into the bright future of building it into a world-class navy in the new era.

It was pointed out that the PLA Navy has gradually developed into a powerful modern navy that can effectively safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests.

It also vowed that officers and soldiers of the navy will make their contributions to speeding up the navy"s transformation and development and building it into a world-class force.
