It is starting to move up off the bottom currently because of the pending tropical waves in the caribbean and east atlantic.

ACCUWEATHER is reporting that 1 of those waves is 1-2 days away from being named a tropical depression in the caribbean.

The trick to these stocks is to get in before it runs. Now is the time, because as soon as they name the 3rd storm of the season, it will run to .14 easily and if it turns into a hurricane watch for .2 break

Been in for a few weeks now... I know you can't predict the weather per se, but you have to know we will get hit by hurricanes just like every other end of summer on record.
 
Posted by gloomiath on :
 
been in this one for a few weeks as well along as trading it a few times.

any recommendations on getting in? my previous trades would give me a partial fill then the bid/ask gets raised leaving the rest of my order behind.

so just now i put an order in for all or nothing, good till cancelled at .115 hoping they would fill me on that and they just raised the bid up past me
 
Posted by SincereX13 on :
 
I set my price at .11 and let it sit as good until canceled. Took about a week but they did eventually fill me at the bid. This mini run today I think is just accumulation so you may get .115 eventually over the next few days. Ha, you can watch the weather channel and make your move that way... clear atlantic let you bid sit, tropical depressions abound hit the ask [Smile]

The reason for the beginning of this run is that the national hurricane center is on the verge of naming a tropical depression in the atlantic.

The naming of that storm will send this above .14 in minutes IMO

Here is the latest report on the tropics...This week is sure gonna be exciting, thats for sure, many storms a brewin in the atlantic.

A cluster of thunderstorms off the Carolina coast is associated with an old frontal zone and an upper-level trough. This feature will slowly shift offshore and it will take some time to develop.


A strung out tropical wave in the Caribbean is positioned from near 83 west and 15 north to near 73 west and 20 north. It is generally tracking west at 15 knots, although the eastern end of the wave is heading more to the northwest across Hispaniola. This wave is causing several showers and thunderstorms over this area with the heavier rainfall over Haiti into Jamaica and eastern Cuba. This system is becoming more and more elongated with time and will split with one piece moving northwest and the other moving due west. Development of either split looks unlikely, but the west moving system could gather some strength with low shear over the region.


We continue to track an impressive tropical wave centered near 55 west and 13 north. It is moving to the west-northwest at about 15 knots and has a center of circulation that can be seen on a visible satellite loop. It is causing plenty of thunderstorms near the center of circulation and looks like a tropical depression already. However, African Dust to the north of the wave and some east-northeast shear aloft may be keeping this feature from developing more robustly. Shear conditions will be less than favorable for the day, but could turn more favorable as the wave heads into the Caribbean. This wave has become less organized in the last 12 hours, but still contains moderate shower and thunderstorm activity. A robust tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic is located along 23 west and south of 12 north and it is moving west at 15-20 knots. This system will head into a little shear on the south side.

Here we go.

Tropical Storm Chris just named in caribbean. Set to hit cuba within a day or so and hit the florida coast within 5 days.

Watch the hurricane stocks soar over the next couple of days.

2 more tropical storms have formed in the pacific as well. Can you say "August"

I really like this one (though there are more like NLST which I also own shares of) because this one has not yet gained any major $$$ this year. Others like NLST already had their little run (not saying they will not run again with hurricanes).
 
Posted by MillerTIME on :
 
yep matrix, i own nlst as well quite a bit, but i love ECCI because it has the bigger percentage gains.
NLST is at .4 and it ran to .475 on trop storm beryl

ECCI went from .1 to .14

ECCI went to .16 on trop storm alberto earlier in june

So i would like to see somewhere in the range of .14-.16 in the coming days as Chris comes closer to florida

if it strengthens to a hurricane, it could hit .2
 
Posted by MillerTIME on :
 
.121 x .129

The big resistence is at .129-.13. We break that and its off to .16

The weather channel is saying that Chris will "slowly strengtehn over the coming days" and could become a Hurricane before it reaches florida

I'm sure most of you have this link already, but it generally has the best information....stuff from the National Weather Service, but also all of the forecast information.

http://www.crownweather.com/tropical.html

The models all have this going in the Gulf, which means lots of time to strengthen, particularly since we have been sitting under a high pressure ridge for some time, and that usually makes them sit out in the Gulf longer.

FWIW....

I'll bet all of you that sold are kicking yourself in the ass now.


So far, Chris has proved to be a tenacious little storm. In the face of what would seem to be adverse environmental conditions, the tropical storm has strengthened. Top winds are now 60 mph with higher gusts (a report came in from the NHC just a little while ago). The NHC is calling for Chris to approach hurricane intensity but that is several days away- and a lot could change.

Tropical Storm Chris strengthens By COLIN JAMES, Associated Press Writer
30 minutes ago



ST. JOHN'S, Antigua - Tropical Storm Chris continued to gain strength Tuesday as it approached the eastern edge of the Caribbean, prompting a run on groceries and gas as people prepared for the third named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.

ADVERTISEMENT

The storm had top sustained winds of nearly 60 mph as it passed over the Leeward Islands, and was expected to gather strength as it approached Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. Forecasters said it could become a minimal hurricane later in the week.

Long-range forecasts put the storm anywhere from south of Cuba to Florida by late in the weekend.

As skies darkened and rain began to fall, people began the familiar ritual of stocking up on gas, food and candles. Tourists at a resort just outside the Antiguan capital said they had no plans to evacuate.

"I am not going to panic," said Maxwell Stevens of New Brunswick, New Jersey. "I will take it in stride."

A tropical storm warning was posted for all the Leewards, including Antigua, Anguilla, St. Kitts and St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, the Hurricane Center said.

At 8 p.m. EDT, the storm was centered about 45 miles northeast of Barbuda, moving west-northwest at 13 mph. It was expected to pass over the northernmost Leewards during the night and skirt the northern edge of Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

The U.S. National Weather Service said Puerto Rico would begin to experience strong gusts of wind and heavy rain Wednesday afternoon. The Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico could receive up to eight inches of rain and could experience flash floods and mudslides, forecasters said.

In the central Antiguan village of All Saints, people were determined to spend the night celebrating the annual Carnival festival, which locals refer to as "the dance."

"Nothing stops the dance. The weather is good for the dance whether it rains or not," said bar owner Derol Thomas, 38, as he had a pre-party drink with friends Tuesday evening.

The first named storm of the 2006 season, Tropical Storm Alberto, swept over Florida in mid-June, then plowed northward along the U.S. coast past the Outer Banks. It was blamed for one drowning.

Last season was the worst in more than 150 years of records. A record number of tropical storms and hurricanes formed, including the devastating Hurricane Katrina.

Here's your Hurricane.
Hurricane stocks are going to go insane today.


CHRIS FORECAST TO BECOME A HURRICANE AS IT MOVES JUST NORTH OF HISPANIOLA AND CUBA

The latest info from the NHC continues to show that Chris should become a category one hurricane in about 36 hours. They leave the intensity at that level from then on out due to several uncertain factors along the path of Chris. The track has not changed too much and it looks like the soon-to-be hurricane will move just north of Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and Cuba over the next five days. This would place the Turks and Caicos Islands in the path of Chris and eventually the southern Bahamas

someone asked about last year this hitting .75...

it did go from .07 to .75 in weeks but that was because of Hurricane Katrina.

Keep your sell limits conservative and you will do well. dont get too excited or you will miss the top. If its just a low level Hurricane, i doubt it will break .25, but if it gets real serious and becomes a big hurricane you never know.

Its not like this is a pump and dump rumor. The storms for real and its heading right towards mainland US, Florida most likely. Between now and Friday we are definitely looking at Category 1 to 2 since conditions are favorable. Just tune to weather channel, they have updates every 10 minutes.

From CNN.COM

Tropical Storm Chris could become hurricane later today.

MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- A hurricane watch has been issued in the southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands as Tropical Storm Chris approaches, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm currently has top sustained winds of 65 miles an hour with higher gusts, but is showing signs of strengthening. Forecasters say Chris could become the first hurricane of the 2006 season later today or tonight.

There were no immediate reports of major damage or injuries as the storm crossed into the eastern Caribbean and headed toward the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

Man, I wish I would've gotten into this earlier. Is .15 too much? Yeah this is a stupid question I know. I have all my investing money (not much) in MA and that went up 10% today so I'm thinking of trying to get in on this...

I like this for the rest of the week, and the next couple of months as well...Chris could become a hurricane tonight and that will bring in a lot of buyers...hurricane plays are going to heat up...millertime is right, buy the silence...
 
Posted by SherriT on :
 
I live in one of the areas watching the storm VERY closely (just went to buy supplies in fact)...this one has nothing to keep it from becoming a 3 or higher. Cat. 1 or 2 is usually just a bad storm in comparison to normal severe thunderstorms around here. However, the other thing to note is the size of this storm....Katrina was only a 4 at landfall, but the sheer size of the storm caused it to affect three states. Chris isn't small either....
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Sorry SherriT but Chris is very small compared to most tropical systems. Also, chances are it will stay south of Florida. There is a huge ridge to the north of it that will cause it to move more W than WNW. Many models bring it over Cuba and many forecasters think it will head that way. Once it gets into the Gulf, it has pretty much no chance of going north due to the enormous ridge over the SE CONUS. Live in the SE? What's the temperature outside? It's hot as hell because there's a huge ridge in place that isn't disappearing anytime soon. Once (if) it gets into the Gulf, it will head due west towards southern Texas or Mexico. It will most likely strengthen if it makes it into the Gulf but will not hit any major populated area if it misses South Florida.

utvolsfan. i just want to make a comment, i wont argue, just want to make a point.

First off i have been watching the weather channel every hour on the hour, and vist weather.com accuweather.com nat hurricanecenter.com and continusly.

And the hurricane forcasters have it heading straight for south florida at a Cat 1 storm, possibly a 2 or 3, depending on many factors

Then yes you are correct they have it forcasted to blow accross south florida and come into the gulf and hit texas or north mexico.
and your comment of not any populous cities there is ridiclous as you have Absolutely no idea how high or low it will go. A little bit to the north and it would hit houston.

Throw in the warm gulf waters of 88+ degrees and you will get a heck of a storm. just my opinion. but all opinions are welcome
 
Posted by SherriT on :
 
So how often have you been in hurricanes or prepped for them in Tennessee? (Only way you could be a VOLS fan *grin*).

All that you say is true about the high pressure system and the ridge keeping it moving West, BUT it makes no difference whether it hits the mainland...if it gets in (any part of) the Gulf, it messes with the oil rigs...period. Any hurricane that has hit in Texas or the central Gulf Coast usually comes from the west side of Cuba, or the straits of Florida.

Oh, and last year, when Katrina hit, it was still hot as hell...called the dog days of summer, and we get it every year just like we get hurricanes nearly every year (at least recently). I've had 2 tropical storms and 4 (strong) hurricanes come through my backyard in two years, and have a good memory of what they looked like on TV and in person.

No matter...you have your opinion and I have mine. We'll see who comes closer on Monday....
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I work with the National Weather Service.. but hey I'll shut the hell up if you want me to. I'm not trying to bring you down or hurt this stock or anything. No need for everyone to get so defensive. I'm actually thinking of getting in on the stock. I'm simply stating my opinion as well as many other experts' opinions on this storm. Every network you watch gets its tropical forecasts from the NWS so it doesn't matter what channel or webpage you look at. There are certain independent forecasters that may forecast differently but if its on TV, its direct from the NHC and the NWS so you might as well stick with www.nhc.noaa.gov - Don't just look at the forecast maps.. read the discussions as well.. As of last update, the pressure in Chris has risen a good amount to 1007MB. This is a big rise. Seems odd, since it looks to be organizing itself. I doubt the AF RECON report but that's what it says. I'm not against you people.. goodness

Discussion from NHC

"WHILE A RATHER STRONG MID-TROPOSPHERIC RIDGE BUILDS
TO THE NORTH OF CHRIS. THIS KIND OF FLOW PATTERN WOULD STEER THE
TROPICAL CYCLONE ON A GENERAL WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TRACK. HOWEVER AN
EVEN STRONGER RIDGE WOULD LIKELY DRIVE CHRIS WESTWARD. INDEED...
THIS IS THE SCENARIO OFFERED BY THE GFDL MODEL WHICH EVEN TURNS THE
SYSTEM WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD FOR A WHILE. WHEREAS THE GFDL IS A
HIGHLY CREDIBLE MODEL...THE MOST PRUDENT COURSE AT THIS TIME IS TO
USE THE CONSENSUS OF ALL OF THE DYNAMICAL MODELS."

Note: The GFDL is a model made specifically for tropical cyclones. It is a very credible model but hasn't been doing that great so far this year, so it may end up being wrong.. but it does have the storm moving WSW for a time into Cuba. Also, I'm sure it was hot as hell in New Orleans before Katrina but there was not a gigantic ridge over the entire East Coast. It is virtually impossible for this storm to head anywhere east of the Texas border if it reaches the Gulf. Look at a satellite image or any upper air map. This ridge is HUGE and that's why there's record heat all the way up into NYC.

Look at the computer models. The only one that has the storm coming close to south FLorida is the UKMET..granted the UKMET has been calling tropical systems pretty good this year.

I agree, skip, all opinions are appreciated...

Really, I meant no offense utvolsfan13, and I would MUCH rather this thing not come in the Gulf, I just don't think there is anywhere else for it to go.

For the non-NWS employees and non-interested-except-for-stocks people, you can see good graphs and charts at www.crownweather.com/tropical.html, including all of the models utvols mentions. The paragraph he copied from the NHC basically says the GFDL is normally good, but it can be wrong, so use the concensus....of course, the concensus is always to forecast 30% chance of rain every day down here even during a drought. (yes, that was catty, but you would understand if you live here).

Point of fact: Katrina hit Mississippi - New Orleans was flooded because they didn't see fit to take care of the levees. MS and AL got FAR worse of the storm surge and wind, and we are completely SICK of hearing about how badly New Orleans got it. I'm in AL, and I saw two story homes about 10 miles south of mine (and I am considerably inland) with the bottom floor missing or invisible.

Sorry all, I got on my soapbox for a moment...back to the stocks....IMHO, not everyone is following this as closely as myself or utvolsfan13, so I think the prices of any hurricane stock will rise, if not this week, then surely between now and mid-October. Safe play at least if you can consider holding if necessary.
 
Posted by Thunder29 on :
 
The weather channel juat said a good possibility of going through the straights and they also comparied it to a strong compact hurrican of a couple years ago. More compact,stronger winds! Now its movement at this point is caused by the high which could push it into cuba, but once in the gulf it should get stronger(god only knows what it could turn into). IMO once on the back side of the high it could be pulled straight north. I think it's rong to cheer for this so I can only say I hope those in it's path where ever it goes does the smart thing!
 
Posted by SherriT on :
 
I said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it hitting Florida. I said it was coming into the Gulf and that should be enough to keep everyone interested in the storm and the hurricane stocks for at least a week (and or kick off the season to play this kind of stock). A Texas landfall would do just as much as a Florida landfall. Florida landfalls are "old hat" by now....

good post Sherri...

I think people will see the word hurricane and will start buying stocks like ECCI...whether this particular storm hits or not, it will spark interest in this stock...happened last year, will happen again...
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
SherriT,

Tropical systems will definitely be on the rise soon. Hurricane season officially starts June 1 but a lot of people fail to realize that it really doesn't start getting into gear until around August 1. There have been lots of strong waves coming off of Africa so far this year, but the waters of the Atlantic have been too cold thus far. This wave formed east of the Windward islands, which is climatologically a bit odd. Normally storms this early form in the Gulf because the waters are a lot warmer. The trade winds across the Atlantic are also becoming a lot weaker, making conditions for tropical development much better. I was looking at these stocks about a month ago but decided to just sit around and see what they did. Today, I decided to randomly check up on them and now I'm the idiot. Thinking about sitting this potential 'cane out and gettin in when another Tropical Depression is about to form. They're usually pretty easy to spot but no one ever mentions them until they're actually formed. It's also usually pretty easy to tell if a Depression is heading for favorable waters. To reiterate, if this thing is in good condition once it hits the Gulf, it should get much stronger. If it happens to skirt Hispanola (doesn't look likely) or Cuba (quite possible), it could get broken up a lot. We'll see what happens in the next few days. Looks like a trough will be returning to the east coast in 10-14 days, so any tropical development in the Gulf at that time will need to be closely watched.

something to think about and assess on this and other h. plays

CHRIS will be a hurricane tomorrow, probably not a big one, but on path to hit south florida....the timing is what's tricky becasue it will be getting close [U]over the weekend[/U], and monday could either be a massive day of buying or a big dip day, depending on what it does and how high the pre run up will get.....just some thougths to think about when playing these

good post weatherbill...I have a feeling this pre-run up will be big because people saw what happened to the hurricane stocks last year, and they don't want to miss out. The volume today speaks to that, A LOT of people bought in today and will continue to. GLTY!

I got in a couple months ago at .11. I'm not looking to sell my 41,400 shares until .35 because I want to make 10k or more. This storm is projected to hit Florida this weekend, very intesting like weatherbill said.

Well I live in south Florida and besides stocking up on Hurricane supplies, I'm stocking up bigtime on ECCI shares and the other hurricane plays. Good luck to evrybody.

Hello weathermen!

Well, Timing isn't everything but it sure helps when ya wanna make $$$.
Sieze the day folks(imo) The season is just heating up and the prices are 'bargain basement" again (IMO)....It's not about 'Chris"
We are most likely, NOT, going to escape the season ......and when they start to form on a more regular basis (anytime) for the next few months...........ECCI will pay handsomely....

I agree, chris got everyone excited about these, it's just a start. The next storm will have these hurricane plays flying again. Now is the time to get cheap shares IMO

also to note is how much buying there was all day yesterday, at levels higher than the current price. those folks, myself included, will likely hold as we know this will go up much higher as the storm season gets more active...

Yup, but it is only going to take one big one to move this, and they are predicting at least 3 for now.

SincereX13,

I agree. If this were a long term stock, that news would be bad but it's obviously not. If you read my posted forecasts yesterday, it may seem that I may know what I'm talking about. People were posting that Chris was "big" and it looked like "Hurricane Charley." All complete crap. It was a very small storm, subject to big fluctuations and was nothing like Charley. If you are going to compare hurricanes that form in the same general area, then almost every hurricane looks like every other one. There is nothing forming anytime very soon but if you know what you're doing, it's not very hard to predict when a depression is about to form. I'll try to keep the board updated and take the unfair criticisms as I go.

Ouch someone gave me a 1 star rating. I guess that's because my only posts were about how Chris was going to turn west and probably go over Cuba, therefore losing steam.. Ouch

Yep. You posted what they did'nt want to hear.. an honest opinion or the truth. Happens alot here,if its not cheerleading or in line with the pump. Notice the moderators dont accept "votes". Go to the newb forum. Tex,one of the mods, has some excellent info you should read. Allstocks is a stock DISCUSSION board, which is a rarity among the pump-only stock boards. But some cant seem to accept that and have to act as thugs. It endangers "their" shekels.lol Welcome

You definatly have knowledge about hurricanes and I do look forward to hearing what you have to say as the weeks move on. No unfair criticisms from me... I do however wish you had been wrong in this case [Smile]

By the way, you can turn the thing off by editing yer profile. Some actually believe it has "merit" or "says it all" about you.lmao. Says more about the thugs and their gangs so I leave mine on,jokes on them!!!By using multiple ID's and collusion with "fellow travelers", they vote themselves "credibility",suddenly,with just a few posts a few days after their "born-on" date. One such on this very thread. Anyway, dont let it bother you. If you opinion is honest, stick to yer guns.

Thanks for the messages folks. I'm kind of glad I wasn't wrong in this case because I didn't get in on these in time. (Sorry to y'all though) I'll definitely let everyone know when it looks like the next depression will form. Right now there's nothing out there that's looking very impressive. Gonna watch this though, but don't think anything will come of it as of right now. http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/east/gmex/loop-avn.html

While things are quiet, why do y'all like ECCI more than NLST as a hurricane play? I was looking at their webpages and NLST is more "out there" with their relationship with storm rebuilding. They've also got lots of offices around the Gulf Coast.

5 Stars for Everyone on the ECCI thread because they know the hot sectors and the hottest stock in that sector!!!

there he is! 5 stars for you too MT. ha! back to 4 for me, thanks! [Wink]

good stuff...ask is starting to move up...

I think folks like ECCI because it is closer to it's bottom that NLST. NLST had some mini runs lately, whereas ECCI has stayed around .11-.13 for a while. I think they will both be great plays here shortly...

UT, ECCI and NLST I give about the same rating. NLST i believe is a much better company but in the small cap market its all about momo and how the stock trades, and ECCI upticks and bounces like a frog on a lillypad when it starts running.

The OS and float on ECCI is low and allows the stock to run fast and make quick percentage moves.
Both also have Heavy volumes.

ECCI went from .108 to .17 on this last run
NLST went from .4 to .65

They are both about the same, i like ECCI better because i know the stock quite well.
Godd question

Yep guys, UT is right, there isnt much in the way of atlantic/gulf/caribbean action currently besides for Chris who is about to be downgraded to a trop depression.

There are a couple trop waves out in the atlantic and gulf, but no development is likely. That said, doesnt take long for one to develop imo.

A post is required here...

We never discussed it dissipating, we discussed where it would go with the assumption it was going to stay some kind of tropical system....we both missed on that account (although you did bring up the shear)

I do stand corrected about the size of the storm...indeed small compared to others. I pulled out my printouts of radar I'd saved, and was mistaken.

Anyway, I didn't want you to think it was unfair criticism - I really didn't mean it that way - healthy debate was my intention. Except for the part about New Orleans - that touched a big nerve here....I'd apologize about anything but that ;-)
 
Posted by SherriT on :
 
OK, so I did a bad job of apologizing...your information is always welcome here...
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Hey SherriT,

Sorry I came off like that. Won't happen again. Only thing that concerns me about ECCI is looking at what happened last July and August, when there were plenty of hurricanes. ECCI actually went down until Katrina hit. Probably won't happen again though since everyone saw it rise so much after a big hurricane last year and wants in.

In other news, Dr. William Gray and his team of hurricane seasonal forecasters at Colorado State University have updated their forecast for the season. The news is slightly more encouraging but still indicates a very active period ahead. The lead author on the project, Phil Klotzbach, and Dr. Gray, forecast 13 additional named storms with seven hurricanes forming and three of those hurricanes becoming cat-3 or higher. Their forecast of landfall probability of a major hurricane is also above average for the entire coast as a whole. Numbers aside, it looks like an active peak to this season and we still have a ways to go. Being ready is always the best course of action- no matter how many named storms end up forming. For now, Chris is the only concern in the Atlantic and the east Pacific has no storms that appear likely to threaten land areas. I'll post more here this evening.
 
Posted by MillerTIME on :
 
One thing i wanna say is that if anyone has any questions for me, id be more than willing to answer them for me.

I do hope that many stay around and trade ECCI up until around Sept 12. We should be making some good bank (knock on wood). Although it will take patience and the ability to buy the silence.

I will help out as much as i can and post my buys for yall.

It sure will be a Fun month and a half.

UTvolsfan will be our inhouse hurricane specialist and hopefully (come on UT) give us the heads up on any trop developement before it hits the press.

In exchange UT i will give you the great buy points and sell points!

For the record i have completely flipped this stock 3 times now.!! Weee

Yeah vols fan, that is because only after Hurricane stocks did the main otcbb players begin trading the hurricane stocks.

Then as you can tell the big traders traded up NLST early in the year following katrina in prepartion for the hurricane season. (bill panetta created that run.)

This year is completely different as all traders know about ECCI and NLST and how they trade in relation to the developments in the tropics. In the otcbb market its all about momo and eyes and ears, and when everyone knows what stocks move during certain circumstances they go back and back to it for continual moneymakers.

Good observation
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Hey MillerTime.. I'd really appreciate that. Right now I don't own either, becuase I just started looking at them yesterday and am still trying to figure out when would be good to buy. I've got all my investing money in Mastercard, which did me nicely yesterday (Up 10%!). At 3:58 yesterday, my mind was spinning as I was about to sell MA and buy ECCI before the market closed. (I still figured Chris would become a minimal Hurricane before hitting the Gulf and I knew investors would jump at the word "hurricane") I couldn't get myself to buy a stock that was up 20% though.

Another thing i want to say is that another great trader to watch is this renroobb.

This AHOLE renrobb was the first to be talking about ECCI. LMAO HAHHAH. the reason i call him an ahole is that he was posting threads on it back in june i believe while i was trying to load the boat (buy shares)! lol, so in fact he had started a thread on it before me and probably saw the potiential in it before me.

Renrobb, we will be looking to you throughout the next month and a half! Hope you have done well thusfar

Ditto here. I was having a bad day...

I think you are right on about the stock - my only question is how many people are going to hold until the active period passes in hopes of a landfall?

Chris remains tropical storm on path toward Cuba
Fri Aug 4, 2006 10:19 AM IST

By Jane Sutton

MIAMI (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Chris retained its strength as it headed west toward Cuba on Thursday, prompting authorities to post storm warnings -- meaning severe weather was expected within 24 hours -- for the Turks and Caicos islands and the southeastern Bahamas.

Forecasters had thought Chris would fizzle into a tropical depression before nearing U.S. oil facilities in the Gulf of Mexico, but they said the storm's maximum sustained winds remained near 65 kph and little change in strength was expected through Friday.

At 11 p.m. EDT (0300 GMT), tropical storm watches, meaning storm conditions are expected within 36 hours, were posted for the central Bahamas, and the northern coasts of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

With Chris only a minimal tropical storm, forecasters' main concern was the up to 5 inches (13 cm) of rain it could dump in mountainous areas.

Chris' center was about 100 km east-southeast of Grand Turk Island, the capital island of the Turks and Caicos chain, at 11 p.m., and heading west near 19 kph. On that track, Chris was expected to pass north of the Dominican Republic and Haiti and near or over the Turks and Caicos on Friday.

It would then cross Cuba and reach the Gulf of Mexico by Monday morning.

Energy prices had eased as Chris weakened. Oil and natural gas prices had risen on the possible threat to drilling platforms and exploration rigs in the Gulf, where hurricanes Katrina and Rita fueled up on unusually warm water before slamming into Louisiana and Texas last year.

The 2005 hurricanes shut a quarter of U.S. crude output and sent oil prices to record highs.

Experts have predicted this year could see another active Atlantic hurricane season, although nothing like the record 28 storms seen in 2005. Chris was the third tropical storm of the 2006 season.

Forecasters lowered their activity predictions for this year Thursday. The Colorado State University team formed by pioneer researcher William Gray predicted up to 15 tropical storms would form in the Atlantic-Caribbean basin, with seven growing into hurricanes.

Earlier forecasts had anticipated up 17 tropical storms, with nine strengthening into hurricanes.

excerpt from a AP news story on the hurricane season...

"...There is, however, a considerably higher-than-average probability of at least one intense hurricane making landfall in the United States this year, 73 percent. The average is 52 percent.

Researcher William Gray said Atlantic Ocean surface temperatures are not quite as warm and surface pressure is not quite as low, both factors in the decision to revise the forecast.

“Overall, we think the 2006 Atlantic basin tropical storm season will be somewhat active,” Klotzbach said. “This year it looks like the East Coast is more likely to be targeted by Atlantic basin hurricanes than the Gulf Coast, although the possibility exists that any point along the U.S. coast could be affected.”

Gray and his team say hurricane activity will continue to be above average for another 15 to 20 years.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami in May predicted 16 named storms in the Atlantic, six of them major hurricanes. As of Thursday, there have been three named storms."

great time to position in hurricane stocks
NLST, ECCI, WEGI, BUGS - still lots of room to run

my preference is NLST (annual low .09, annual high $3.20, currently trading at .46)

annual low high current
NLST.. .09 . 3.20 . .46
ECCI.. .07 . .75 . .125
WEGI. .067 . .79 . .39
BUGS. .01 . .075 . .014

PM for you UTvols...

I use Choicetrade, $5 flat trades.

About to use it to buy more shares of this pretty soon...

I use Scottrade as well. They charge $7 + 1/2% of the principal. I have been very pleased with the service....I may try another service, but think I will always keep this account too.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
SherriT,

How much do you pay for pinks on scottrade, like NLST? Does ECCI warrant a higher commission?
 
Posted by SincereX13 on :
 
all pinks are 7 bucks a trade plus 1/2% of principal. So if you were to buy 1000 bucks worth of ECCI or NLST your commision would be 7 bucks plus 1/2% or another 5 bucks.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Awesome thanks a lot.. headin over to the local scottrade office right now with a check...

Anything under $1 is $7 + 1/2% of the principal, so a $500 trade would be a $9.50 total commission. Maybe not the cheapest, but I can always drop off another check at the brokers office without a wire fee, etc. and be ready for business tomorrow, so there are pluses in my book for the extra charge.

(Of course, I'm sure DC probably has a local office of all, but here in Mobile, it's just the big players...)

Tropical Depression Chris currently has winds of 35 mph and a pressure of 1012 mb. Chris is located at 21.3 N and 71.6 W or about 45 miles of WSW of Grand Turk Island. It is moving West at 13 mph but, jogged NW early this morning. Chris was downgraded to a depression earlier due to lack of convection and only a 29 kt flight wind but, convection has redeveloped. This new convection will likely make Chris a tropical storm again. Chris is forecasted to slowly strengthen now until the gulf of mexico despite expected interaction with Cuba.
 
Posted by skip on :
 
next named storm will move this significantly IMO...great flipper until a storm makes landfall...
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Chris is NOT forecast to strengthen as it heads towards the Gulf of Mexico.
From NHC
"THE INTENSITY FORECAST WILL NOT
INDICATE RESTRENGTHING BACK TO TROPICAL STORM STATUS PRIOR TO
NEARING THE NORTH COAST OF CUBA. INSTEAD IT WILL WAIT UNTIL THE
SYSTEM ENTERS THE GULF OF MEXICO IN 2-3 DAYS. THE INTENSITY
FORECAST FOLLOWS THE TRENDS OF THE SHIPS AND GFDL MODELS
CLOSELY...BUT SHOWS LESS STRENGTHENING NEAR THE END OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS HIGHLY
CONTINGENT ON CHRIS MAINTAINING A CLOSED CIRCULATION...WHICH MAY
NOT HAPPEN."

He is still experiencing shear and development is being hindered by the upper level lows nearby. If Chris survives to the Gulf of Mexico, he has a chance to regain Tropical Storm strength but he's looking very ragged.

Thanks a lot sherrit. I openned an account with them today and dropped off my check at the office. Should be ready to roll Monday afternoon. Couldn't believe my brokerage service was trying to charge me $140 for a $700 trade.

The NHC has written the last advisory on Chirs- it is no longer a threat to anyone and regeneration looks unlikely. In this case, dry air and strong upper level winds (at times) won out. The Atlantic just wasn't ready yet but that may be about to change. The long range models (some of them) show development out in the east Atlantic next week. Water temps are planty warm in most areas and the dry, dusty air coming off of Africa is becoming less and less of an influence on the tropical waves. I think we have about a week to 10 days before we see the lid really come off in the Atlantic. This is not hard to see considering that at that time period we will be entering the climatological ramp up towards the peak of the season in September.

DEEP TROPICS GETTING TO BE MORE ACTIVE AS CONDITIONS BECOME MORE FAVORABLE

I think there is a decent chance we will see our 4th named storm this coming week. A strong tropical wave and associated low pressure area way out in the deep tropics looks to be gaining strength. The NHC indicates that additional development is possible and most of the computer models see this system developing as well. Overall, the look to the atmosphere is becoming more favorable for deep tropical development. This is, of course, to be expected as we approach middle and late August- perhaps it will start slightly earlier this year. I also want to comment on water temps. They are well above normal just off of the Northeast and portions of the East Coast. In fact, the latest sea surface temperature anomaly maps show that almost the entire Atlantic north of 30 degrees latitude is well above normal. How this impacts the meat of the season remains to be seen. We are about to enter a much more active period of development and I will be staying on top of things very closely. The next two months or so will certainly define what this season is remembered for- one way or another. I hope that everyone has done what they can to be ready- the lid is about to come off the pot. I will have another update later tonight.

A low pressure area in the far eastern Atlantic, about 800 miles WSW of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands, bears watching. It's showing some signs of organization, and further development is possible over the next day or two as it continues to move westward.
 
Posted by stocktrader22 on :
 
Well the price is pretty stable here, and most people are holding on...there should be even a nicer pop with a new tropical storm or hurricane on the horizon

A Tropical depression is going to organize later today or early tommorrow. http://www.weather.com/newscenter/tropical/?from=wxcenter_news
 
Posted by renrob05 on :
 
BUSY WEEK AHEAD

The way things look now, it will be a busy week for us as the tropics get ready to heat up. We have a system in the central Atlantic that looks to be on its way to becoming a tropical depression within the next day or so. Most computer models drive this feature off to the west and towards the Lesser Antilles. How strong it will be and exactly where it will track are questions that are tough to answer right now. Let's see what the NHC says about it all over the next day or so- there is plenty of time to watch and see how things pan out.

There is also a tropical wave impacting areas of the NE Caribbean Sea- including Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. The wave is moving along fairly quickly so the weather should improve in that region soon. The NHC does not indicate any development from this system as it tracks off to the west and west-northwest. The remainder of the tropics are quiet right now and this includes the east Pacific. I will post another update here later today.

Posted by pennyaddict71 on :
 
I agree, I think we're going to have a good week... NLST was red today, this is the best value hurricane play by far, also its proven to move just as good if not better than NLST when a storm hits and it hasn't been run up 500% like NLST has.
 
Posted by 100stacks on :
 
IMO if we get a hurricane this could blew to .50, what are your thoughts?
 
Posted by SherriT on :
 
I don't think it is a question of IF we get a hurricane, I think it is a question of WHEN. We are just getting into the active period of storm development - from my recollection, the largest number and/or intensity storms have almost always been the latter part of August, SEPTEMBER, and early October.

I suspect our resident expert will start giving us some updates once the depression is officially numbered. It's so far out there, should give us at least a week of discussion.

(The mental case in Alabama can't believe she is hoping for a storm...LOL)

The system east of the Windward Islands is just not looking very impressive. Lots of dry air and dust from the Sahara impeding development. The NHC is set to release its mid-season forecast update at 1100EST today so that's a big thing to watch.

ECCI is VERY strong. The crazy thing is that there really are no sellers at all. So we go on for an hour or so, no sells, but get a couple buys and uptick, then again no sells for hours and it continues to uptick.

There really is not too much to worry about right now in the atlantic but this float has been bought up so much and in the hands of so many traders that this thing is slowly rising on low volume. I expected it to be in the .115 to .125 range until something was named.

But instead this stock is rising slowly in anticipation because of a lack of sellers. That is a strong stock.

Oh no doubt this is gonna go insane. It was at .14x.145 yesterday on NOTHING really. Any word of a named depression and we will be at 17 in now time. THen a hurricane hitting mainland US - is anyones guess.

ECCI is also getting close if not already the clear cut favorite for Hurricane Plays. Its between them and NLST.

I'm holding til after the 11AM NHC announcement on their new forecast. They'll probably lower their season estimate a bit and I'm hoping that will drop NLST and ECCI a bit so that I can get in at a good entry price. If not, I may have to deal with getting them at these levels.

NOAA just released updated report. Keeping with its predictions


With the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season upon us, experts from NOAA are reiterating their prediction for an above-normal number of storms. NOAA scientists warn this year's relatively quiet start is not an indication of what the remainder of the season has in store. "This year's three named storms may pale in comparison to the record nine storms that formed through early August 2005, but conditions will be favorable for above-normal activity for the rest of this season—so we are not off the hook by any means," said retired Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Ph.D., undersecretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. For the entire 2006 season, which ends November 30, NOAA is projecting a total of 12 to 15 named storms of which seven to nine will intensify to hurricanes, including three or four becoming major hurricanes—rated at Category 3 or higher.

But Mayfield stresses the hurricane season is still young. "The peak of the season goes from about the middle of August to the end of October," he said. "We're not at the beginning of that peak yet."

He stresses people in coastal areas always should be prepared for a hurricane.

Yeah, I've been sitting on this one.. Haven't gotten into it yet.. Waiting for it and NLST to drop.. Tropics are dead right now.. completely dead.. That system that ran into the windward island was doomed.. Looked good on visible and infrared but was clearly an open wave on water vapor imagery. Ran into a bunch of shear and poof! gone. Waters are warming a bit in the Atlantic though, as upwelling is slowing. Also, a couple cold fronts will be dropping through the SE next week that could stall off the east coast and potentially make things interesting

I'm watching the Weather Channel closely for any signs of action before I jump in.
By this time last year we were 2/3 of the way
through the alphabet already.
We're not even into the D's yet and all the major
storms (typhoons) are in the Pacific this year.
Very odd to have nothing straff the U.S. by now.
Law of Averages then says the Atlantic should
become real active real soon.
I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Lucky SOB!!LMAO

Well, guys, i wanna see if i can help out some of the more inexperienced traders, and one way i believe can help out is to post my buys and sells.
I have bought and sold this stock (completely in and out) for the past couple months starting in may.

I have recently completed my buys on this next runup, and here are my complete buys...

08/04/2006 13:14:48 Bought 25000 ECCI * 0.1213 -3,040.50

08/07/2006 11:56:33 Bought 30000 ECCI * 0.129 -3,878.00

08/08/2006 14:15:07 Bought 9000 ECCI * 0.132 -1,196.00

08/09/2006 12:43:26 Bought 22000 ECCI * 0.137 -3,022.00

08/10/2006 13:59:01 Bought 5000 ECCI * 0.13 -658.00

Current porfolio is 91,000 shares at an avg share price of like .1293.

Anything within .108-.15 is a great buy and should get you great money in a week or so. Trick is to not get to caught up in the hype and stick to your sell targets. Yes it hit .75 last year but that was katrina. The bigger the storm the higher it will go but keep your emotions in check and you will do much better
 
Posted by MillerTIME on :
 
for the record we closed on Friday at :
.135x.14
3x2

With about 9 buys coming in at .14. The new resistence level is at .17 and after that is .20.

The KEY point is to buy BEFORE any mention of a storm. Buy the silence, because this thing begins upticking like a frog jumping to a lilipad. It is a low float and the MM uptick on 0 shares during its run.
 
Posted by MillerTIME on :
 
Chart is looking great...

Began Jul 24th at its bottom of .108 and started upticking, all the way up to .17 which is new resistence.

Then it retraced as is expected but held its new bottom at .117 and has now consolidated within .13-.14 forming an interm bottom gearin up for the next run. The next run should take us near or past .20 depending on the storm.

All the indicators have relatively bottomed and have lots of room to run up.

Hopefully next run is past .2 and then a retracement to a new bottom of .15 before it goes for 1 big run.

Last short report showed MM short over 1M shares of ECCI which should give us a great short squeeze on the next run.

LOL, sorry for all the posts, but now on to the storm updates.

For the past couple of weeks we have had a high level of "wind shear" in the atlantic and gulf. The last couple of days have had this shear diminishing, creating more favorable conditions for storms.

In addition we have also had a high level of dry air, which inhibit growth of storms. Now that we have had many t storms and moisture cross the atlantic it is getting diluted and therefore more favorable to storms.

We have 3 storms or "invests" to watch out for. Both entering more favorable conditions in the coming day or two which could lead to a trop depression or storm by monday or tuesday.

--#1 93L is off the coast of florida and is a stalled storm that is projected to develop and hit the carolinas, or hit florida and cross into the gulf or head to bermuda. Could get very interesting if it hits the gulf waters.

#2 92L is in the lesser antilles and is a better organized storm and is heading into more favorable conditions as well in the coming days and could develop into Debby as well.

#3 a Trop wave coming off africa on sat night. Long way to go with this one.

Could wake up tommorrow to something more organized or possible Debby.

.1375x.143

HOD Is .143 with the buys coming in currently.

Watching the tropical distrubance off the coast of florida. Beginning to have some convection and a center of circulation. it is beginning to head south slowly which is beginning to worry many that it could miss florida and head into the gulf of mexico. Waters there are 88-92 degrees with LOW wind shear. Look out if that occurs.

Also wave coming off africa looking organized with 35 mph winds, experts saying could become debby within a day or two.

A BROAD SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AREA IS LOCATED FROM JUST NORTH OF THE NORTHWESTERN BAHAMAS AND EXTENDS NORTHEASTWARD OVER THR ATLANTIC

A VIGOROUS SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AREA IS PRODUCING NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND HEAVY SQUALLS BETWEEN THE WEST COAST OF AFRICA AND THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS. WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 50 MPH HAVE BEEN REPORTED WITH
THIS SYSTEM TODAY. ALTHOUGH ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE ONLY MARGINALLY FAVORABLE FOR ANY SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT TO OCCUR...A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD STILL FORM BEFORE THE SYSTEM REACHES THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS TOMORROW. INTERESTS NEAR THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF THIS SYSTEM AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWEST TO NORTHWESTWARD AT 15 TO 20 MPH.

For anyone still looking to get in, id advise to get in before its too late. This is going to run within the next day or so, and maybe as early as later today. I personally do not see anything much lower than where we are now until the season is over. This stock is inching up everyday with fewer sellers and more buyers. Just slow and steady upticks. Would like to see a close today of .145+


And if you are still not in, you may want to read this link, looks like we will have a trop depression anytime now. Watch this stock fly on that news...

A flare-up of heavy showers associated with a low pressure center about 125 miles southeast of Myrtle Beach, S. C., is being monitored closely. Air force reserve Hurricane Hunters are tasked to investigate the disturbance this afternoon. It's possible a tropical depression could form later today or tonight if the convection--the heavy showers--persists. Upper-level winds are light (minimal wind shear) and the disturbance is near the Gulf Stream (plenty of warm water).

per weather.com

Air Force Recon is flying into this as we speak. See if they name it a depression later on. Could get interesting
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Best bet on this one is for it to form really quickly and move inland... Conditions are going to become unfavorable over the next couple days for development.. Couple weeks til September.. a one year chart of ECCI will make you feel better.

From another board.


Well everybody don't be discouraged by the lack of storms, so far were already ahead of schedule based on NOAA's numbers and September should be a hot month for storms. Check out this excerpt from Dr. Jeff Masters ****.

"The relatively quiet hurricane season we've been enjoying is not going to last. A very active period will start, as soon as the atmosphere destabilizes a bit more. If one believes the long-range 2-week outlook from the GFS model, the current quiet period should last another 4-12 days. Around August 21, I expect it will appear that a switch has been thrown, and the Atlantic will be very active indeed. Expect our first hurricane in the Atlantic by August 26, and a very active September. However, I do expect we will get many recurving storms that will miss land, and that this hurricane season will be similar to the ones we experienced in 1995-2003.

Hey 100stacks.. This one is looking like the most impressive Cape Verde wave so far this season. We are definitely getting closer to the time of the year when these form. Lots of models recurving it to the north soon, but I'm not buying it. Looking at the steering patterns, it just seems unlikely at this point. Also, the models have recurved a bunch of the recently emerged Africa waves and they've just continued on a western path. NHC is interested in this one..

The lid is gonna blow.


By AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Frank Strait


A new tropical depression has formed in the eastern Atlantic, and it will impact the Cape Verde Islands over the next 24 hours; a tropical storm warning is now in effect for the Cape Verde Islands. At 5 p.m. EDT, the center of Tropical Depression Four was at 12.5 north, 21.5 west, which is 250 miles southeast of the Cape Verde Islands. The depression is moving to the west-northwest at about 12 mph. Maximum winds are estimated to be 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph, and the minimum central pressure is estimated to be 1007 millibars, or 29.74 inches of mercury.


Currently, conditions in the easterly Atlantic are favorable for this depression to strengthen slowly. There is little wind shear and the clouds of dust coming off the Sahara have diminished over the last few days. The waters in this area are warm enough to support a tropical storm, but not by much, with surface temperatures close to 80 degrees and not to substantial depth. The depression should reach tropical storm status Monday night or Tuesday, and the next name on the list for the Atlantic Basin is Debby.


Steering currents will take the depression to the west-northwest for the next few days, and the waters are not much warmer in its path, so it is reasonable to expect only slow strengthening. However, when this feature reaches 40 west, which should occur Thursday night or Friday, the waters become warmer and the warmth is much deeper. So, it could strenghen considerably at that time. At this point, it appears that an upper-level trough of low pressure will begin to steer what should be a tropical storm by then on a more northeasterly path by this time, taking it into the middle of the Atlantic.


There are a few other features to keep an eye on in the Atlantic basin over the next few days. The most impressive one is over the western Caribbean, where thunderstorms are clustering along a tropical wave near 85 west, south of 20 north. The wave is moving west at about 10 knots, and will affect the Yucatan Peninsula with thunderstorms through tomorrow. There are still a couple of computer models that indicate that a depression could form in the Bay of Campeche or central Gulf of Mexico in the next couple of days from this feature.

NHC FORECAST SHOWS TD #4 EVENTUALLY BECOMING FIRST HURRICANE OF THE SEASON

Tonight's discussion from the NHC was interesting. It suggests that TD #4 could become a hurricane in about four days as it moves on a NW track out in to the open Atlantic. However, the forecaster mentions that there is a chance the cyclone could move more westward than the big global models indicate. If this is the case, then we might not see this system curve out to sea as early as indicated thus far. Right now, the only land areas that will see effects of TD #4 are the Cape Verde Islands. Once clear of that region, the system will have only open ocean to deal with as it slowly comes together. Obviously, we will have many days to watch and see how things evolve. Elsewhere, the tropics are of little concern- even the east Pacific, which is very active, has no immediate threats to land. I'll post more here early tomorrow morning.

The hurricanes were rough on anyone down in this area. But, I am looking at it this way...if I can make enough money trading stocks, I can donate more money and time to organizations that help get through the crisis when the next ones come....

thats a good way oflooking at it fer sure, and we all may as well face it hurricanes aren't goin away , so we may as well profit from them [Big Grin]

This new storm is supposed to take days to develope, so I think we slowly go up here as the days roll on. The more it develops the higher the pps.

There are several things that could happen with TD #4. Currently, the NHC forecast is calling for it to become a Tropical Storm soon. The models are still turning it towards the northwest, as is the NHC forecast..

There is a trend to look at in the models though. Compare the 12Z models runs on Monday to the 12Z model runs on Tuesday.

12Z Monday

12Z Tuesday

A clear shift to the W by all the models, they still have TD 4 going NW, but the trend is a big thing when it comes to weather models. The newer models do seem to turn it to the N more towards the end, but their positions are all to the W of yesterday's models. Oddly enough, the faster this strengthens, the less chance it has to make it across the Atlantic.. If it strengthens, it will likely get turned more to the NW by a weakness that is forecast to develop. If it gets sheared apart at all, it will lose some of its organization. This may allow it to continue on a western track and eventually redevelop as it nears the Caribbean. It has a harsher environment for development in front of it. The hurricane models are calling for strengthening, but again, it has a tough environment coming ahead.

NHC will upgrade TD 4 to Tropical Storm Debby at the 11PM Advisory.
 
Posted by renrob05 on :
 
It's official. Debby is here.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
The NHC and the models have shifted their forecast track for now Tropical Storm Debby to the West. The weakness that was forecast to develop to the North of Debby is much smaller than the models had depicted.. If Debby can stay on a western enough track, it may bypass a trough that will be coming off the east coast. Here is the NHC discussion.

quote:
THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 295/16. ALTHOUGH THE GLOBAL MODELS
ARE IN REASONABLE AGREEMENT AND TIGHTLY CLUSTERED THROUGH 48-72H...
THE MODEL CONSENSUS HAS SHIFTED WELL TO THE WEST OR LEFT OF THE
PREVIOUS TRACK...DUE IN PART TO THE CONTINUED WESTWARD SHIFT OF
THE GFS...GFS ENSEMBLE...AND GFDL MODELS. THE BAM MODELS HAVE BEEN
ATROCIOUS AT BEST WITH A LARGE RIGHT-OF-TRACK BIAS OVER THE PAST 36
HOURS...SO THEY WERE NOT EVEN CONSIDERED IN THE FORECAST PROCESS.
THE GFS AND GFDL MODELS APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN OVERDEVELOPING A WEAK
MID- TO UPPER-LEVEL LOW LOCATED ABOUT 550 NMI NORTHWEST OF DEBBY.
THIS FEATURE IS SO INDISTINCT AND MUCH SMALLER THAN THE CIRCULATION
ENVELOPE OF DEBBY THAT IT IS HARD TO LOCATE IN WATER VAPOR IMAGERY.
IN CONTRAST...THE NOGAPS AND UKMET MODELS HAVE BEEN DOWNPLAYING THE
UPPER-LOW AND DISSIPATE IT COMPLETELY BY 48 HOURS. GIVEN THAT THE
UPPER-LOW AT BEST IS MOVING WESTWARD AT THE SAME SPEED AS DEBBY...
ANY NORTHWARD INFLUENCE BY THIS SYSTEM ON DEBBY SHOULD BE LESS THAN
DEPICTED BY THE GFS AND GFDL MODELS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK
WAS SHIFTED WESTWARD...BUT NOT AS FAR WEST AS THE GUNA...GUNS...AND
CONU CONSENSUS MODELS. AS MENTIONED IN LAST NIGHT'S DISCUSSION...
IF DEBBY DOESN'T REACH 20-25N LATITUDE IN 72-96 HOURS...THEN A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH AND FORECAST WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
WILL BYPASS THE CYCLONE...AS ALLUDED TO BY THE 18Z UKMET MODEL RUN.

wheres the stock going is my concern
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Climatology argues for Debby being a "fish system" or one that never reaches land.. Of more concern is the invest east of the Winward Islands. It is currently strengthening and heading towards the Caribbean and potentially the Gulf of Mexico in the long run. Keep an eye on this one.

Posted by cactus33 on :
 
actually they just said it was going to be first hurricane, whats ecci doing down here? Im in again on this...
 
Posted by cactus33 on :
 
Tropical Storm Debby is slowly gaining strength in the eastern Atlantic. Winds are up to 45 mph as of the 5 AM EDT advisory. The storm is expected to continue tracking toward the west-northwest while slowly gaining strength. Debby could become a hurricane within 72 hours.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
It could be the first hurricane but that doesn't change the fact that it most likely will not affect land. 2 storms in history that formed in this area actually reached land and they were initially moving SW. This will most likely be a fish system but again, the one east of the windward islands is of much more concern to the Caribbean and the Gulf.

Posted by renrob05 on :
 
There is another storm forming. The one utvolsfan13 is talking about.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Wave east of the windward islands is continuing to become better organized. Conditions expected to remain favorable for strengthening as the system moves towards the west-northwest and the Caribbean. NHC says it could possibly declare it a depression or name it a Tropical Storm on Thursday. An Air Force RECON plane will check it out tomorrow.

 -
 
Posted by renrob05 on :
 
Of greater concern now is the tropical wave/low pressure area that is approaching the Windward Islands. It looks as though this will go on and develop in to a tropical depression and likely a storm. In fact, the GFDL computer model shows it becoming a strong hurricane as it heads in to the northwest Caribbean Sea. Even the NHC's intensity model shows this becoming a hurricane. Needless to say, we will want to keep a close watch on the future of this system. People in the Windwards can expect squally weather for the next day or so as the wave and its energy passes through the region. The Hurricane Hunters should be out tomorrow and will give us a clearer picture of what is happening with this system.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
97L (most likely soon to be Eduardo) looks to be the real deal. This system is the biggest threat so far this season. It is heading into ideal conditions for development. If it makes it into the GOM, the western side seems more likely than the eastern. Watch this one carefully.

What lat and long is this system at now utvolsfan13
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
144 hr CMC forecast.. Note: 144 hr is a long way out and the reliability is low.. Also of note is that the Canadian model has been doing better with tropical systems than many of the other models so far this year.

Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
100 stacks,

System is currently at about 17N 57W. IF it continues to develop, it will affect the Caribbean first. From that point, there is a lot of land that can potentially affect it. The Yucatan Peninsula and Cuba are the barriers to the Gulf. If it develops and then tracks over land, it will weaken as it does so. Once (if) it emerges into the Gulf of Mexico, it should continue to strengthen.

hey guys, where do i punch in my zip code and see the forcast for my area on this thread??? Is that possible yet? LOL just kidding... good work guys, very enjoyable atmosphere in here. but it is kind of interesting that we hope for hurricanes to be formed and hit the US so we make money, no? usually its inevitable so i guess it doesn't matter, might as well invest thats what i think anyway....

so anyway, they say longisland and NYC are going to be hit big in years to come, they always have survival tips on the news here (im on LI now). I don't understand that, seems as though they always fizzle out if they get this far north, so i just laugh whenever I hear that stuff. today I was thinking it would be cool if it happened to me up here and I had invested in a bunch of weather stocks at that same time. literally -raining money!! haha ok im done, GL!
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
I wouldn't say I'm hoping for hurricanes.. just know that they're going to happen and making forecasts based on what I see... not trying to will the systems to do anything (that won't get you very far). The media hype about the NE is exactly that... hype. It's the "well we don't know when it's going to happen but it will happen" situation. You can pretty much say that about anything that has the slightest possibility. Even Max Mayfield said something to the effect of, "Well we don't know if it will be this year or in one hundred years." Same with the hype around the next possible big earthquake on the New Madrid fault in Western TN and Eastern MO. I read an article a couple months ago that said "Scientists say there is a 90% chance there will be a major earthquake on the New Madrid fault within the next 50 years." I went on to read the entire article and it pretty much stated that they had no idea when it would happen.. just that it would at some point.. and that they wanted people prepared so they issued that scary warning.. The media can make anything look scary. 50 years ago they were talking about how the Earth was cooling uncontrollably and how we'd need to come up with an idea of how to warm it or else we'd all freeze. Even yesterday, when it was pretty obvious Debby was going nowhere, the headlines on national news channels were "TROPICAL STORM DEBBY STRENGTHENING." Who cares right?

Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
It still has a long way to go before it gets into the heart of the Caribbean or even close to the GOM. Right now it seems like it may be a bit too close to South America for any significant short term development. The eastern Caribbean has also historically not been the greatest place for the development of tropical cyclones. Once it reaches the central Caribbean, things should really start to take shape.

I think it's up to this storm in the caribbean if this takes off early next week. This little run today shows that the bottom of ECCI is 11 cents and has no where to go up when around that. NLST didn't budge today because their bottom is way less than 40 cents.

It's not NLST anymore.. It's NSMG.. Up 10% right now and was all the way to .48 at one point

This system has a little shear it has to work its way through in the eastern Caribbean... The Eastern Caribean hasn't historically been a very good place for development either. Once it gets into the central to western Caribean, things should really take shape

utvolsfan13 so if this projected path is right it looks like this could be in the gulf in 5-6 days. If it makes the gulf it strenghtens and becomes a hurricane and then will hit the US 90% of the time.
 
Posted by cactus33 on :
 
It does look that way..
This is the time of year when hurricanes start cooking, they hit early last year. maybe the brunt will come late this yr. seems unlikely their will be no hurricanes at all this yr affecting USA.
Looking for this stock to do well tomorrow too.

Sustained winds of 39-73mph. Seems powerful to me at this point.

Tommorrow I bet it closes in the .15 to .155 range. What does everyone else think?
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
If you take a look at the charts for NSMG and ECCI, you'll see most of their gains came last year after storms hit. Either people started paying attention then or they figured their services would be needed. This year, I'm assuming it will be different (as we've already seen) since people know what the stock has potential of doing. Even though it took landfall before the stock would rise last year, this year should be different.

A vigorous tropical wave is making its way through the Windward Islands and was investigated by the Hurricane Hunters earlier this afternoon. They have found a closed circulation at the surface along with sustained winds of 35 mph. It has thus been deemed Tropical Depression 5. Squally weather (heavy rain with wind gusts of up to tropical storm force) will continue for the Windward Islands along with Trinidad and Tobago through the late night hours but conditions will improve during Friday

As of 8:30 pm et



Tropical Depression 5 has formed in the eastern Caribbean. Squally weather (heavy rain with wind gusts of up to tropical storm force) will continue for the Windward Islands along with Trinidad and Tobago through the late night hours but conditions will improve by Friday. If this system becomes a tropical storm it will be named Ernesto. The system will move toward Jamaica over the next 3 days, then possibly toward the Gulf of Mexico by early next week.

This is exactly what I am thinking... these stocks will move on the hype of an impending hurricane this year and probably tank after it hits. I'm hoping to be able to flip this 3 to 4 times in the next two months, but I'll be content to get at least one good pop.

They just compared Tropical Storm 5 (ernesto) to Hurricane Ivan in 2004 on the weather channel. Hurricane Ivan went to the gulf of mexico then hit US land just like this storm is projected.

dont say that . i hope its not like ivan . me here in cayman got hit badly with ivan 80% of the island was damaged . i hope history doesnt repeat again.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
It's not a tropical storm yet. It's not Ernesto yet. The NHC does not make forecasts past 5 days so it's not yet projected to hit the U.S. Chances look good that it will, but the NHC keeps this as a Tropical Storm all the way to the Yucatan Peninsula, past the Caymans.. already making it not similar to Ivan. In no way am I saying that this thing isn't going to develop and or hit the United States. It's just not a tropical storm and not Ernesto and not Ivan.

I expect a BIG day on friday maybe over .16?
 
Posted by renrob05 on :
 
(State College, PA) - Tropical Depression 5 is nearly tropical storm strength; once Tropical Storm Ernesto forms, the question is, "Will the storm then intensify into the first hurricane of the year?"

WEEEEEEEEEE.

Have not sold 1 share.

VERY VERY VERY STRONG.
2.3 M Volume

I expect it to consolidate in this area for an hour or two, then uptick a cent, consolidate and right at the end of day it will have a huge runup with volume going into the weekend.

If the strom strengthens and is still forcasted to hit the US, you will see a MASSIVE gap. maybe .2+ on the gap alone and i am being conservative

holding too..


Tropical Depression 5 continues to move rapidly west away from the Lesser Antilles. An analysis of morning satellite imagery indicates that showers and thunderstorms have significantly increased around the very small circulation and the very small significant wind field. An upgrade to tropical storm status (named Ernesto) could occur at any time. The Air Force Hurricane Hunter Aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system this afternoon.

For now, it appears the widespread squally weather will remain south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, but a few showers and thunderstorms on the outer fringes cannot be ruled out. While a westward movement still continues, the system is forecast to make a turn more toward the west-northwest within the next three days, approaching Jamaica. Environmental conditions are forecast to become more supportive for continued development, and a track threatening the Gulf of Mexico by early next week is possible. For now, interests along the Gulf coast states should simply monitor and be aware of the system.

For now, interests along the Gulf coast states should simply monitor and be aware of the system.

hold my shares too, I want it All. So far the storm track has not changed at all could be in GOM by early next week.

another shake....
 
Posted by MillerTIME on :
 
This is not a shake, it is called consolidation and is healthy for a breakout stock. It needs to breakout, consolidate, then run. consolidate, run some more. it is putting in a bottom here in the 14 area before it takes a run for the 16 wall. then it will more than likely consoildate in the 15 area.

did you guys see NOAA's latest track? It looks like next week this will hit Texas or Louisiana.

Thanks Penny for that link, seems like this could be the 1st big landfalling hurricane of the year.

***here goes another guess. Hurricane hunters have exited the storm and have found 50 MPH suface winds. I will give you the confirmation if/when they give their report on the Offical wind speeds.

I believe 39MPH is a Trop Storm

no problem Miller, happy to help. I found a really good forum at www.flhurricane.com Thats where I found that chart. Next week should be fun for all of us.

You don't have to know what any of that means.. just the part that says Tropical Storm Ernesto.. We have our fifth named storm come the 5PM advisory. Significant strengthening does not appaear likely until a later period. Ernesto's heaviest convection is currently away from the low level center of circulation. Another LLC will most likely reform under the convection. The ull to the west of Ernesto, which is causing the shear, should move west as Ernesto does. If the LLC reforms under the convection, the forward speed will slow a bit and it may move a bit more north.. The slower Ernesto goes, the better chance he has of developing, because the ull can move west and the shearing environment will lessen. Once it reaches the western Caribbean and GOM, things should really start to heat up.

TROPICAL STORM ERNESTO DISCUSSION NUMBER 5
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL052006
500 PM EDT FRI AUG 25 2006

REPORTS FROM AN AIR FORCE RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER INDICATE THAT
TROPICAL DEPRESSION FIVE HAS STRENGTHENED INTO TROPICAL STORM
ERNESTO. THE AIRCRAFT FOUND 48 KT WINDS AT A FLIGHT LEVEL OF 1000
FT ABOUT 40 N MI NORTHEAST OF THE CENTER...ALONG WITH A MINIMUM
CENTRAL PRESSURE OF 1004 MB. THIS WIND WOULD NORMALLY SUPPORT A 40
KT INTENSITY. HOWEVER...THE CENTER WAS COMPLETELY EXPOSED AT THAT
TIME...AND THE 48 KT WINDS WERE NOT IN SIGNIFICANT CONVECTION.
THUS...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SET TO A MORE CONSERVATIVE 35 KT IN
AGREEMENT WITH SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM TAFB AND SAB.

THE EXPOSED CENTER IS TO THE NORTH OF THE PREVIOUS TRACK...AND THE
NEW INITIAL MOTION IS A SOMEWHAT UNCERTAIN 285/14. OTHERWISE...
THERE IS LITTLE CHANGE IN THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY OR THE TRACK
FORECAST FOR THE FIRST 72 HR. ERNESTO IS SOUTH OF A LOW/MID-LEVEL
RIDGE OVER THE WESTERN ATLANTIC...WHICH SHOULD KEEP THE SYSTEM
MOVING GENERALLY WEST-NORTHWESTWARD. MODEL GUIDANCE SUPPORTS THIS
SCENARIO WITH A TIGHT CLUSTERING OF TRACKS THROUGH THE NORTHWESTERN
CARIBBEAN AND THE WESTERN END OF CUBA...WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE
GFDL WHICH CONTINUES TO CALL FOR A TRACK OVER THE LENGTH OF CUBA.
SOME SPREAD APPEARS IN THE GUIDANCE AFTER 72 HR...WITH THE GFS
BUILDING THE RIDGE ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO ENOUGH TO TURN ERNESTO
WESTWARD...WHILE THE ECMWF AND CANADIAN MODELS HAVING ENOUGH OF A
WEAKNESS FOR THE CYCLONE TO TURN NORTHWARD. THE UKMET FORECASTS A
CONTINUED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD MOTION THROUGH 120 HR...WHILE THE
NOGAPS STALLS ERNESTO OVER THE CENTRAL GULF OF MEXICO.
THE NEW
FORECAST TRACK IS NORTH OF...BUT PARALLEL TO...THE PREVIOUS TRACK
FOR THE FIRST 72 HR BASED ON THE NEW POSITION AND MOTION. IT THEN
CALLS FOR A SLOWER NORTHWESTWARD MOTION OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO IN
RESPONSE TO THE GUIDANCE SPREAD.

SATELLITE IMAGERY STILL SHOWS UPPER-LEVEL SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW JUST
NORTHWEST OF ERNESTO. THIS SUGGESTS THAT THE CURRENT SHEAR WILL
CONTINUE FOR ANOTHER 12 HR OR SO...WITH TRANSIENT BURSTS OF STRONG
CONVECTION LIKELY. AFTER THAT...THE LARGE-SCALE MODELS ALL
FORECAST AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OR ANTICYCLONE TO BUILD OVER THE
NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN. WHILE THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN THE
DETAILS...PARTICULARLY IN THE EXACT POSITION OF THE ANTICYCLONE AND
A SOUTHWARD-MOVING CYCLONIC SHEAR AXIS ON ITS NORTH SIDE...THE
SHEAR IS LIKELY TO DECREASE ENOUGH TO ALLOW ERNESTO TO STRENGTHEN.
THE INTENSITY FORECAST THUS CALLS FOR SLOW STRENGTHENING FOR THE
FIRST 24-36 HR...WITH SOMEWHAT FASTER STRENGTHENING THEREAFTER.
THE NEW FORECAST CALLS FOR MORE STRENGTHENING OVER THE GULF OF
MEXICO THAN PREVIOUSLY FORECAST DUE TO THE FORECAST UPPER-LEVEL
WINDS AT 96 AND 120 HR. ALTHOUGH THE SHIPS AND SUPERENSEMBLE
GUIDANCE CALLS FOR LITTLE CHANGE IN STRENGTH AFTER 96 HR...THERE IS
A CHANCE THAT ERNESTO COULD BE MUCH STRONGER THAN CURRENTLY
FORECAST OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO.

Thats a big if though, mother nature is in charge. seems like they dodged the bullet all summer, usually when that happens theres the mother storm that comes in and does the damage of 3 hurricanes. Glad I live in the southwest, couldnt handle stressing about that..

ERNESTO FORECAST TO BECOME MAJOR HURRICANE IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

The NHC is now forecasting Ernesto to become a major, or category three, hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. Before it gets there, however, it will likely pass very close to or over Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the western end of Cuba. It won't be long now until a hurricane watch is issued for some of these locations.

Ernesto continues to get better organized and it has fought off several negative factors over the last few days. One of the biggest obstacles in its way has been fairly strong upper level winds that act to blow off the deep thunderstorms that must develop over the core of the storm for it to strengthen. These shearing winds are forecast to relax to near nothing over the coming days- leaving a pattern that would support another nasty hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. I realize the implications of this and feel bad for people who are still trying to recover from Katrina, Rita, Dennis and Ivan. The fact is that we have reached a busy time in the hurricane season and we knew this was a remote possibility- and yet, here we are. Before getting too worried about Ernesto, let's see what happens over the next few days. Right now it is a tropical storm and has a ways to go before reaching that major hurricane status. I would simply encourage people who live along the Gulf Coast, from Florida to Texas, to keep an eye on what's happening. There are plenty of sources of information out there now and you know you can count on us to provide the latest info as well. Should Ernesto indeed threaten a landfall in the U.S., we are prepared to head out for our field observation and reporting using our weather instruments and remote camera system. I just returned from Mississippi where Jesse Bass and I set up a 10-meter wind tower at the Bay-Waveland Middle School. We are now back home and are getting equipment ready for a possible trip back to the Gulf. I will post updates here all weekend long. Hey, at least the rest of the tropics are quiet for now. Debby is weakening and the east Pacific is free and clear of any threats to land. I will have more here later this afternoon.

yea, lookin more and more like its gonna hit the gulf, i cant even imagine the firestorm on wall street if this hurricane is big and nails the refineries along texas and so on. Combined with iran fears... oil will skyrocket. and nat. gas too imo

TROPICAL STORM ERNESTO DISCUSSION NUMBER 8
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL052006
1100 AM EDT SAT AUG 26 2006

THE LAST REPORT FROM AN AIR FORCE RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT
AT ABOUT 09Z INDICATED A CENTRAL PRESSURE OF 997 MB AND MAXIMUM 850
MB FLIGHT-LEVEL WINDS OF 60 KT. MICROWAVE DATA FROM THE WINDSAT
SATELLITE AND MORNING VISIBLE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT ERNESTO REMAINS
PARTLY SHEARED WITH THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER NEAR THE WESTERN EDGE OF
THE VERY STRONG CONVECTIVE MASS. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SET AT
45 KT IN AGREEMENT WITH SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM TAFB AND
SAB...AND THIS COULD BE A LITTLE CONSERVATIVE.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS 285/12...A LITTLE SLOWER THAN BEFORE. OTHER
THAN THAT...THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN...FORECAST REASONING...AND
FORECAST TRACK FOR THE FIRST 72 HR ARE ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED SINCE
THE PREVIOUS PACKAGE. DURING THIS TIME...ERNESTO SHOULD MOVE
WEST-NORTHWESTWARD NEAR JAMAICA...THE CAYMAN ISLANDS...AND WESTERN
CUBA. THE FORECAST TRACK IS MORE PROBLEMATIC AFTER 72 HR. THE
LARGE-SCALE MODELS AGREE THAT THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE GULF OF
MEXICO WILL WEAKEN AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH DIGS SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH
THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. HOWEVER...THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN HOW
MUCH WEAKENING WILL OCCUR. THE ECMWF AND NOGAPS CALL FOR ERNESTO
TO RECURVE OVER THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO...WHILE THE UKMET SHOWS
ENOUGH RIDGE TO KEEP ERNESTO MOVING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD. THE GFS
AND CANADIAN MODELS ARE IN BETWEEN...CALLING FOR SLOW MOTION OVER
THE CENTRAL GULF.
COMPLICATING MATTERS FURTHER IS A LACK OF
RUN-TO-RUN CONSISTENCY. GIVEN THE UNCERTAINTY...THE FORECAST TRACK
AFTER 72 HR CALLS FOR A SLOWER FORWARD SPEED...WITH A MORE
NORTHWARD MOTION THAN IN THE PREVIOUS PACKAGE. OVERALL..THE NEW
FORECAST TRACK IS IN BEST AGREEMENT WITH THE FSU SUPERENSEMBLE.

THE LARGE-SCALE MODELS CONTINUE TO FORECAST THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
LARGE UPPER-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE ALONG THE FORECAST TRACK
...ALTHOUGH
SO FAR THEY HAVE BEEN TOO FAST IN DOING SO. IF THE MODELS ARE
CORRECT...THE CURRENT 15-20 KT OF WESTERLY SHEAR SHOULD DIMINISH
DURING THE NEXT 12-24 HR AND ALLOW ERNESTO TO STRENGTHEN. THE
INTENSITY FORECAST CALLS FOR SLOW STRENGTHENING DURING THE FIRST 36
HR...AND STEADY STRENGTHENING THEREAFTER. THE INTENSITY FORECAST
CALLS FOR ERNESTO TO REACH 100 KT INTENSITY IN 120 HR...IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THE SHIPS AND GFDL MODELS...AND THE STORM COULD GET
STRONGER THAN THAT. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE INTENSITY
GUIDANCE...FOR AS OF YET UNDETERMINED REASONS...CALLS FOR LITTLE
INTENSIFICATION AFTER 96 HR EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE NO OBVIOUS
INHIBITING FACTORS.


IN SUMMARY...ERNESTO COULD BECOME A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS HURRICANE
AS IT MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF
MEXICO. INTERESTS IN THESE AREAS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE
PROGRESS OF THIS SYSTEM.

The centers of tropical cyclones tend to dodge Jamaica.. The mountainous terrain often acts to make the centers of the systems wobble around the island. Not to say, Jamaica doesn't get the wind and damage... the centers just often miss it.

The track forecast is subject to a VERY high amount of error once it reaches the Gulf of Mexico. The models are all over the place.

Definitely wouldn't say it's forecast to head towards New Orleans at this point. Even the NHC discussion says that their forecast once the system reaches the GOM could be way off. It depends on several factors. Just gotta wait and see

Whats a good oil company to get into in the pennies for a hurricane in the gulf?
 
Posted by Duckhunter on :
 
The model forecasts are usually way off for hurricanes until a day or two before landfall.. obviously the model initialization data is sparse over water.. even near islands its not as good since not all countries have weather observing networks like we do. The models are only as good as the data that goes into them. I remember a couple years ago when I was still in school we had to plot the actual track of hurricanes VS the model positions for the entire track of a storm because our professor wanted us to see just how far off the models usually are for long range forecast. Usually 3-5 day forecasts are off by several hundred miles. I just got into ECCI on friday even though I've been watching it for a while. I've been waiting for a storm like this that has a pretty good chance of making landfall of a hurricane, due to the odds I doubt it'll be near as devastating as Katrina (although anything is possible) but even if its not the hype alone as it approaches the Gulf States should make for a decent run. Ernesto should hit land as a hurricane as long as the forecast of low wind shear continues, however thats subject to change too. The intensity forecasts can be off just as much as the track forecasts.

If you go on wikipeda (what a great site) and search tropical cyclone prediction model it'll give you some basic information on the models shown in ut's picture above it also has a link on the bottom to a good NWS site that explains the track and intensity models.

Good lord.
 
Posted by cactus33 on :
 
getting a lot of press, and people are getting worried that it will plow into the big easy. not sure if they can handle another blast right now..

mixed opinions out there about the levees
 
Posted by Duckhunter on :
 
The probabilities of it making a direct hit on NO is pretty low.. possible but theres alot of coastline there for it to hit. the forecasted track will most likely bounce around the next few days before getting more consistent as time goes on. Theres no certainty it'll be a major hurricane either. Right now the day 5 intensity forecast shows it to probobaly be a cat 1 hurricane it'll depend on the exact track and how much time it'll have to strengthen in the gulf i.e. if it moves hard north once in the gulf and right into land there wont be alot of time for it to pick up strength. The problem with watching the weather channel and major news stations is that they treat every hurricane now like Katrina, mostly for ratings purposes. Keep in mind Katrina is the most expensive hurricane to ever hit land, the conditions for that to happen again would have to be just right. For example if a category one hurricane hits the Florida panhandle which is a area much better prepared to handle hurricanes than the LA coast the damage done will pale in comparison to what happened in NO and the cost will be much less. Although damage on the scale of what happened in NO will happen again the odds are it won't be Ernesto. The stock will most likely rise but don't count on the stock hitting the price it did last September. I'm going to look for a nice gain on the hype and possible moderate damage for now unless the forecast in a few days does still have Ernesto hitting a ill prepared area as a storm of good intensity.

This is just IMO though and its based more on my knowledge of weather than stocks. I suppose the hype alone from any landfalling hurricane could bring it to the high of last year, but I would think it would take a storm with similar damage estimates of Katrina to do it.

if the big easy gets hit again really bad, maybe a sign to just leave the place...

Posted by cactus33 on :
 
good info duck, but on the other hand, you always want to take stuff like this very seriously after the katrina disaster. a lot of people downplayed katrina and we all saw what happened. Thats why its being heavily covered in the press. Plus the fact that there is even a chance of hitting new orleans is freaky. just dont think they are ready. Im seeing that this will be cat 3, not 1.. but its anyones guess. Chances are ernesto will be underestimated and people will be bumper to bumper again trying to flee. I hope not, I dont want death, just people that want ECCI water to drink ect.

1 hour, 16 minutes ago

NEW ORLEANS - The head of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conceded Saturday that despite aggressive efforts to repair the levee system in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, it was unclear whether the it could hold up to a sizable hurricane this year.


Lt. General Carl Strock, the commander of the Corps, said the agency was carefully tracking Tropical Storm Ernesto, which was spinning in the Caribbean and projected to reach hurricane strength by Tuesday.

He was confident the Corps had done all it could to repair and reinforce 220 miles of levee walls, but he conceded he couldn't be sure whether the system would withstand Ernesto if reached Category 3 status and struck near New Orleans, as Katrina did Aug. 29, 2005.

Gov. Kathleen Blanco, who appeared at a news conference with Strock, said her office was carefully watching the storm and would order evacuations it they became necessary.

She said that although she is not happy with the current strength of the levee system, she believes as much work as possible was done in the year since Katrina.

It was too soon Saturday to predict whether Ernesto would hit the United States, said Michael Brennan, a meteorologist with the hurricane center in Miam

intersting points in the article which was released 1 hr ago

Hurricane Katrina was a Category 3 storm when it came ashore in Louisiana last August 29 and devastated the city of New Orleans by breaching its levees. It killed around 1,500 people on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

At 5 p.m. (2100 GMT), Ernesto's maximum sustained winds had risen to 60 mph (95 kph) and it was moving toward the west-northwest at about 13 mph (20 kph).

MIAMI (Reuters) - The fifth tropical storm of the Atlantic season, Ernesto, could become a dangerously powerful hurricane in the oil-producing Gulf of Mexico next week around the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, U.S. forecasters said on Saturday.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said forecasting Ernesto's future strength was riddled with uncertainty.

But very warm waters in its path as it approached the Gulf, where a quarter of U.S. crude oil and natural gas production is located, could lead to significant strengthening, the Miami-based center said.

"This could result in Ernesto becoming a powerful hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico," said hurricane center forecaster Lixion Avila in a bulletin.

Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Cuba issued hurricane watches as Ernesto bore down. A hurricane watch means hurricane conditions can be expected within 36 hours.

ARRRGGGGHHHHHH Can I just say I am SICK of hearing about New Orleans. Yes, they don't need to be hit again, but do you think the MS coast does, or AL coast does? AL has been hit with 3 storms all Cat. 3 or higher in the last 2 years, including Katrina.

All I can say is, I hope that ECCI makes a good return because I just may need it to go toward my hurricane deductible.

I may be wrong, but I think that article was incorrect. As Katrina approached, they kept comparing it to Camille from 1969 because they were both Cat. 5 storms, and Katrina had one of the lowest pressure readings on record, if not the lowest. It was a Cat. 4 when it made landfall...

It really is a mute point this year, because if Ernesto even hits Cat. 3 strength, with the state of things all along the central Gulf, it won't take much.

The current models have it hitting land 6 days from now on Friday around Noon et. The effects won't be felt until then and I think ECCI will be taking off really BIG the following week about 10 days from now. Until then this upcoming week I still think this could fly, but if you want to get above .50 youre gonna have to wait until the 10 days I previously mentioned.
 
Posted by cactus33 on :
 
reasonable thinking 100stacks....

Most likely run the strongest AFTER the hurricane, as ECCI goes to work and gets even more attention.

pretty sure you said the same earlier, or at least someone did.

I say within 15 minutes of the open you will see it at or near .2. This is the real deal folks, and on the Trop Storm Chris alone it hit .17. Now were talking about a Cat 3 Hurricane hitting LA, MS, AL or FL. The buying pressure on this stock will be enormous.

Couple that with the fact that nobody in their right mind would really be selling too much on monday with it intensifying throughout the week.

You could be right, you have no chance of me selling early to mid week. Good statement no one will be selling. Who knows this could get crazy, few knew about this stock last year, now everyone knows about it. Do you think we could see the volume over 10 million any day next week?

Great great post 100 stacks.

This is what i was gonna post. THIS was the reason it hit .75 last year and why it is the hurricane king this year. It has proven results and Hurricanes actually create revenues.

Just a guess, i would say the closer it gets to the mississippi gulf coast the higher this price will go because if it knocks out the water system again we could see .75 yet again this year.

7M volume on the day it ran up to .17 on Trop Storm Chris.

Monday we will be seeing the opening bell off of a weekend full of fox news 24/7 hurricane updates of CAT 3 forcasts all over the gulf coast states including many saying a possible New Orleans Diaster hit.

Id say 3 million in the first hour alone.

10 million is very possible, but i wont say its a guarentee.

One things for sure, it could get crazy on monday. I compare ECCI to a frog on a lili pad when it starts to run up. Its like a frog and just hops and hops to each lillipad and the higher it goes the longer the hops are. .17 to .175, to .177, .18, .185, .19, .2, .22, .23


One thing i will say is i WILL NOT put price targets out there because absolutely anything can happen. Some people are saying anywhere from .2-.75 on this run. Anything is possible.

Earlier fears that Ernesto might barrel toward New Orleans, near the anniversary of Katrina's landfall, were eased with the latest advisory, but it was bad news for residents of central and northern Florida.

Ernesto is now forecast to make landfall as a major category 3 storm on the coast of Florida, move northeastward and still be a category 1 storm well inland.

Morning evil people wishing for a category 3. (Well I am too, LOL). Anyhow, My local forecast in Miami is saying Ernesto is now Category 1 at 75 mph. Don't know how this will gap tomorrow but if it does gap up bigtime, I'll wait for a retrace back to .14's before I get in.

latest path has it going over cuba which will probably weaken it a lot then it will end up in the gulf of mexico but won't have much time to stengthen because it will quickly run into florida

the projected path takes it right over the entire length of cuba then it will either emerge over the gulf of mexico and strengthen or if it goes more east it will quickly run into florida so it won't have much time to strengthen - all depends on how quickly it turns to the east

Cuba will not slow it down.


As of 8 a.m. EDT, Hurricane Ernesto had maximum-sustained winds at 75 mph, making it a category 1 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. Ernesto was located about 115 miles southwest of Haiti and was moving to the west-northwest at 9 mph, and is expected to continue to strengthen before making landfall in western or central Cuba late Monday night into Tuesday morning. By late Tuesday, Ernesto is expected to enter the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and possibly intensify to a category 3 hurricane - a major hurricane - before heading into Florida by Friday.

Renrob just a minor correction on your post here. Cuba will slow it down temporarily. Hurricanes always slow down over landmasses especially those with mountainous regions like Cuba has. We're all excited but don't get carried away.

Now everything else you said was on point.

Oh dude I feel your pain. Lets hope the forecast change for your sake.
 
Posted by Duckhunter on :
 
your not screwed yet theres 4 days left for the forecast to change more. Cuba will weaken it.. since being over land always disrupts the convective currents that strengthen/maintain hurricanes, but it can re-strengthen once over water again. I feel bad for you guys on the coast though those long term power outages have to suck. No air conditiong is no way to live.

Chances are you are going to get something your way. loot, I'd watch closely and bail if you can. If i didnt have work or hard commitments there I'd bail now. what sucks is that this stuff is so unpredictable it could miss you and blindside some city near, never know. What usually happens is everyone leaves to late and then you see the 20 mile back ups. I dont know how you live there, I know its nice, but hurricanes would be too much for me. hang in loot, and good luck !

I lived there since Aug 2003 from NJ. All the hurricanes seem to miss me, but this is the first projected path in my area. We'll see.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
Ernesto is definitely in a weakened state right now. It's interacting with Hispanola and Air Force recon hasn't found hurricane force winds yet.. may get downgraded to a tropical storm. Once it gets away from Hispanola, Ernesto should strengthen again, perhaps reforming a broader low level center of circulation. The broader the LLC is, the better chance Ernesto has of surviving over Cuba. It's exact track will be VERY important. A few degrees difference will decide if Ernesto is over Cuba for 12 hours or 24 hours. If it can hold itself together through Cuba, there is nothing to stop rapid strengthening in the GOM. I wouldn't trust the forecast beyond 2-3 days as of right now. The models are all over the place and a ridge in the SE United States could deter Ernesto from taking a north/easterly track. Many models show Ernesto getting into the GOM, and then meandering here and there with no real steering currents. It's general direction in the next few hours will be very important in determining how long Ernesto will be over Cuba.

In anticipation of the approach of Hurricane Ernesto later this week, evacuation of visitors to the Florida Keys has been ordered. No watches or warnings are currently effect, but a hurricane or tropical storm watch may be issued later today.

could this whip around, strengthen veer east slightly and then slide gently back and clobber miami? I guess anything is possible. not sure how evacuating miami would go..

Right now it looks like Ernesto will be a cat.3 hurricane when it hits Florida. The projected path has it going through Florida then back into the Atlantic and then hitting Eastern South Carolina as a Cat. 2.

Posted by Duckhunter on :
 
If it keeps to the forecasted track (yeah right) it isnt to likely that it'll hit Florida as a Cat 3.. cuba will weaken it and there isnt enough time in between cuba and florida to strengthen to a cat 3. The probability table made for the current track has it as a cat 1 hurricane hitting florida however if the track shifts more west and goes for the panhandle or areas west of that then there could be more time for it to strengthen to a Cat 2 or greater, we'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks Cactus, as you can see with my delayed response I had to bail out to go to the local Publix supermarket and Home Depot to get more supplies. You sort of get used to it living in the southeast. Its like those L.A. people and the earthquakes, they'll never leave. But I won't be stupid, if its a killer storm, I'm gettin the hell outta dodge.

I'm not sure if I should go somewhere or stay. I know they said earlier that it could be a Cat 3 when it hit's the US, has anything changed? This is all I could find for florida...

"It certainly looks like it's going to impact a significant portion of Florida before it's all over," said Max Mayfield, director of the National Hurricane Center.

Basically at this point no one knows how strong it will be after cuba..
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
I don't think I'd recommend anyone to evacuate right now.. Ernesto is barely a Tropical Storm south of Cuba right now. It's center is currently between Hispanola and Cuba.. The convection around the center has had a nice burst in the past couple hours.. Though Ernesto is very weakened, he appears to be strengthening a bit before he runs over Cuba. He should emerge from Cuba as either a Tropical Depression or a Tropical Storm. Many current models are showing Ernesto go over southern and western Florida. These models may shift west on the next run. The ridge over the SE doesn't appear to be weakening as significantly as the models have been assuming. Definitely in the wait and see stage right now.. I expect it will head a bit more west than the track shows right now. (As of 1100PM Advisory)
 
Posted by 100stacks on :
 
If you're right, Ernesto will have more time to strenghten in the GOM correct?
 
Posted by pennyaddict71 on :
 
Good Sunday morning!

There are many problems associated with Ernesto's new track and maybe only
one or two good ones. Having taken a jog north-northwest yesterday due to
wind shear and eye reformation, the good news is Jamaica and the Cayman
Islands appear to have dodged a direct hit. Bad news: Dominican Republic
and Haiti receive much more rainfall than anticipated resulting in
landslides and extreme flooding, especially in deforested Haiti. End
result there: Many lives lost and more displaced.

Good news: Interaction with the mountainous areas of Cuba will slow down
development of Ernesto before emerging in the Gulf of Mexico. Bad news:
Again flooding will be an issue and heavy rains will fall all over the
length of Cuba.

Good news: The official forecast track has now shifted significantly to
the east with the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, and to a lesser extent,
Mississippi now the potential targets. Bad news: These areas are still
recovering themselves from several hurricanes over the last few years with
Ivan a standout.

Devil's advocate stance: Remember when Hurricane Katrina was forecast to
track into the same area as Ernesto once it made the Gulf, only for the
NHC and NWS to realize to everyone's horror that the actual track was well
to the west of the first track and you know the rest.....

Be prepared, smart, informed and safe!
Dave

This is the new projected path of Ernesto. This new track has it over Cuba less which would sustain the winds. This new path would effect the entire state of Florida with either cat.2 or cat.3 winds. All of the Eastern seaboard will also see cat.1 or cat.2 winds all the way north to Virginia.

I'm expecting BIG THINGS in the next few days. On Oct.19 2005 ECCI opened at .16 and closed at .31 with vol. of only 2.7M because of Hurricane Wilma that looked like it was heading to Cancun, Mexico. Hurricane Ernest looks like it is gonna be a Cat.2 hurricane (maybe Cat.3) that will effect all of Florida, and parts of the Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina coastlines. I'm expecting ECCI to approach .30 very soon with volume around 10M. Of course this isn't Katrina, but Ernesto is getting tons of publicity on every news station.

"We do expect it to reach the Gulf, maybe as a Category 1 hurricane, possibly a Category 2," said John Cangialosi, a meteorologist with U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.

The convection still looks healthy over Eastern Cuba.. Once Ernesto gets over the water, he should start to strengthen pretty quickly.. Currently being pulled north by a low, but may get a more westward component as the low retreats and a ridge builds in the SE.

Do you think it is going to make landfall that far east in FL, or do we still have much of a possibility of it getting into the central/northern Gulf?

Emerging off the coast of Cuba 10+ hours earlier than expected. He formed a new COC North of the coast to escape the mountains and headed DUE north instead of the NW track many had predicted. This Guy Ernesto is unreal, he cotinues to amaze forcasters who are getting it handed to them imo.

here is the Gitmo satillete

Another thing is some are saying it will be heading WEST now because of a "high ridge" ??(dont know if thats what its called) and enter the Gulf of Mexico.

I know this is exactly the opposite of the 11AM advisory that shifted it east, but LMAO, who the heck really knows whats going on with this storm.

Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
It almost seems dumb to trust any forecast anymore when it comes to Ernesto. Pretty much every track forecast that has come out has been wrong. The steering currents are pretty weak in the area, which is why no one can figure out where he's going to go. If the weakness over the SE retrogrades and a ridge builds, Ernesto could turn more to the west, as the NHC says. Once it emerges over water, things should hopefully start to clear up.
 
Posted by utvolsfan13 on :
 
This thing looks like its already exiting the northern coast of Cuba.. Ernesto has been notorious for reforming its center further and further north as it has progressed. It looks like it may already be emerging over the ocean north of Cuba. It was forecast to be over Cuba until late this evening. The convection in Ernesto is also still very persistent. There is a chance that this could ride up the SE coast after it heads towards FL. If it makes it off the Midatlantic coast, it may end up stalling. This could be a big rainmaker for much of the eastern United States for a prolonged period of time. We'll see what happens..

****: Miami area braces for Ernesto

By:
Preston RudieMiami - There is still a great deal of uncertainty over what Tropical Storm/Hurricane Ernesto will do to the Miami area. But already, Miami-Dade County has cancelled classes for Tuesday and Wednesday and Broward County has called off school for Tuesday.

It's already being reported that some lines are forming at gas stations around the area, as people scramble to prepare. Last year, you'll recall Hurricane Wilma caught many folks in this area off guard and while some officials say Ernesto may be nothing more than a Category 1 if it strikes the Miami area, consider this: when Katrina hit Florida last year as a Category 1, it killed six people in Broward, and five people in Miami-Dade counties. It also left more than 1.4 million people without power.

We are currently heading to the National Hurricane Center in Miami and will have more during Tampa Bay's 10 News at 6.

On other note, already today the National Guard has activated about 100 members, mostly for planning purposes. But the state and local officials in this part of the state are leaving nothing to chance.

Well,
Looks like Ernesto will remain a tropical storm..
maybe a weak Cat 1 when it reaches FL after crossing the FL straits (lotta rain for the east coast and nasty wind).....one possible scenario could see it hug the East coast and intensify to as much as Cat 2 before hitting SC on Thurs........or it could go out to sea.
We'll see

So this thing is definite coming for us most like as a category 1 or 2.

Not sure if this will do anything for the price of ECCI, but check out all this rain the HPC has predicted for the next 5 days.. Over 10 inches in Miami and DC. Over 13 inches on the Delmarva peninsula, Richmond, and Norfolk. Could also regain hurricane strength before a secondn landfall on the East Coast.

The earlier forecasts had it in my backyard, and I was one of its biggest cheerleaders [Wink] Now if it HAD hit and the power was out more than a couple of hours, I would have dog cursed it with vigilance....

Mr. NWS, are you here? I wondered if you have any knowledge of that wave in the Atlantic Rob mentioned above....other than it is there [Wink]

NWS sees two waves..

quote:
A TROPICAL WAVE IS LOCATED SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES SOUTHWEST OF THE
CAPE VERDE ISLAND. DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM..IF ANY...IS
EXPECTED TO BE SLOW TO OCCUR AS THE TROPICAL WAVE MOVES SLOWLY
WESTWARD.

AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS LOCATED ABOUT 1200 MILES EAST OF THE
NORTHERN LEEWARD ISLANDS. SHOWER ACTIVITY WITH THIS SYSTEM IS
LIMITED...AND DEVELOPMENT...IF ANY...IS EXPECTED TO BE SLOW TO
OCCUR AS THE LOW MOVES WESTWARD.

Both have potential but aren't rapidly turning into anything yet.

I think that the NHC is purposely giving us erroneous information about Florence's forecast in order to load up on ECCI, NSMG, & WEGI at these levels, and tommorow morning they will announce that Florence will go due west for a US east coast landfall as a CAT3 storm.

It's not like they are ever held accountable for their constant inaccurate forecasts that they post on their website concerning these storms.

As jimmy said, the Peak of Hurricane season is Sept 10th. So we just past the peak, and will have a good month or two to go.

The indicaotrs are all on the bottom and some over 1 year lows. This is what is called buy the weakness sell the strength.

It would appear your new call has lost
a lot of ground amidst all the hype.
Glad I wasn't on board.
Just because we're having a few tropical storms
doesn't mean any of these will pounce.
Most of these plays skyrocketed after Katrina.
A Cat-6 as it should've been called.
A once in a lifetime storm in a class by all herself.
The season to date has been eerily quiet.
It will take a simular storm to Katrina to
make these stocks move beyond the hype.

you do realize the season is only 1/2 way over? NLST ran from .11 to over .65... I think a 6 bagger off of nothing but a few tropical storms is pretty damn good. If we get a storm these are alomst always a sure thing to run, look at how predictable this stock is. I'm holding until next year if need be.

The eighth tropical depression of the Atlantic season has formed almost 200 miles south of the Cape Verde Islands. This will likely become the eighth named storm of the Atlantic season and the name will be Helene. This system should gradually strengthen and may become a hurricane over the next couple of days.

thanks Beechwood for your comments. LMAO. HAHAHAH

I called this back in may or june i believe.
Have enjoyed runs of
.1 to .16
.108 to .14
.108 to .17
.105 to .155

More than doubled my portfolio and earned so far more than $7,100 on this stock alone in the months i have been trading it.

The bigger the storm the more the stock runs. Yes Katrina made this run. FROM .07 to .75. LOL we wont get that again, but 50% flips and 100% runs every other week i will be just fine with!

ECCI has been arguably the #1 trading/ biggest consistent mover of the OTCBB/ pink sheet market for the summer. It has had the biggest volume runs and the biggest consistent percentage gain runs over the other summer stocks.

Glad you werent on the board either! AHAHHAHAH

How yall been lately. The tropics are certainly heating up.

Trop Depression #8 will be upgraded shortly to Trop Storm Helene.

We will then have
Hurricane Florence
Hurricane Gordon
Trop Storm Helene.

In addition there is a big wave coming off africa and some of the models are forcasting this to develop as well.

Also in the Bay of Capache in the SW Gulf of Mexico there has been some circulation with a system since this morning and we may get an invest on it shortly if it can show the beginning of trop depression formation. GOM conditions are very favorable to developemnent with high mositure content, high SST, and low shear.

In addition there is also a trop wave N of South America that was looking better organzied this morning but has fallen apart a bit recently. Could develop.

Peak of Hurricane Season Sept 10th. Just past the halfway point.

ECCI .09. Chart at montly lows , indicators bottomed close to before the .75 run. MM have probably covered down here and will run it up quickly.
Once a system develops that threatens US, we will go past the 9s, 10s, and 11s within a couple of hours because nobody will be selling and it is historically light on the ask there.

Have a good night

Even farther out in the Atlantic, Tropical Depression 8 is steaming westward at a good clip several hundred miles SW of the Cape Verde Islands. The depression is forecast to slowly strengthen (becoming Tropical Storm Helene) and is expected to take on a more west-northwesterly track. It may eventually reach hurricane intensity, but would still be well out in the open waters of the central Atlantic when (and if) that happens.

"this stock has nowhere to go but up". lol.
That's what a lot of people were saying when
this thing was hovering around .12 to .16 .
Then it dropped like a brick to half price.
A good buyin point?
Possibly but to shaky.
I didn't buy then and I'm not buying now.
I suspect more than a few MM's have short positions in this one and recent numbers
seem to bear that out when compared with
concurrent postings herein.
I think WEGI is a much better hurricane play.

CAT 3 Hurricane Helene. May want to keep a closer eye on the forcast track. Throughout the weekend it has shifted farther and farther west with each model run.

Latest NHC 5 day cone at 11Pm has also Shifted track west after the 5th day i believe as all models now have it missing the 1st TROF forcing it westward.

Here is the cone, i will have more on this in the morning as i will want to see another run of models.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at3+shtml/024650.shtml?5day

Also 95L invest is up on the Navy site. Dont think it will be an issue though

ALthough, Tropical Wave coming off africa. It is the farthest south so far this year, could possibly affect US. With it being the farthest south starting point, it allows for it to track west and possibly hit US. could become a depression within 1-2 days.

HOLY SMOKES! Unbeivable. i Still own all 104,400 shares. So all yall who are crying just think of me LMAO!

It really has reached the point of, not even worth selling. The RSI is the lowest its been in over a year and its at 25! Way oversold.

#1 (knock on wood) but this is a complete RETAIL FIRESALE. Tons and tons of people bought this up back in the mid summer and now they are selling out and getting scared. THIS IS NOT DILUTION. DOMS IS THE DILUTER as many of us know by watching a couple of weeks back. He is at .16.

Next, what is occuring is just not any buying pressure. Nobody wants to buy it because there is no hurricanes. But people are selling. No buying and some selling = price drop. Add to the fact it keeps dropping and people keep getting scared.

If you look at the chart from last season it didnt even really drop during the off season. Lowest it went was .07 so if it really comes to it, i may even think about holding it. LMAO. WOW.

Now, the FUNNY part. we are ONLY 10 days past the peak.

About 3 hours ago they named a new 96L invest that is expected to develop currently into a 110MPH Hurricane. The thing with this, is look where it is, it is the farthest S storm yet. It is below 10N and on the same latitude as Northenn South America. And there is also a Wave Train coming off africa within the next 3 days.

THe place to keep an eye out is the GOM and caribbean these days, as all the development will mostly hit S Florida. And some meterorolgists are worried about this front that is coming down, and thinking it may stall once in the caribbean. Creating Tropical Storms.

Well i will be back, i dont blame ANYONE for selling because this is some crazy ****. Good luck to all.

And here is the thing, once/if a storm develops that threatens land, the selling will stop and the buying will go crazy as we are way oversold. I honestly think it wont take more than 3 hours to get it over .1. Then who knows if it will get back to its old highs of .17. i doubt it.

The 96L is tracking westward, still unorganized, which is good for US landfall, because if they develop quickly they turn north, if they dont they trek westward and head into the Caribbean and then they develop.

Ahhhh...hah
Well,
I admit I am not the hurricane expert here....BUT....from the experts that I read I see that Invest 96l is expected to follow Gordon and Helene northwest and out to sea...........So is that all she wrote...........Not Hardly!
Seems the next wave off Africa (behind Helene) WILL be the one to WATCH and conditions allowing westward progress (threatening USA)will have improved..I'm learning here...we'll see??

LOL, isnt that funny jimmy, i have become the same way. (not nothing anything about weather/hurricane patterns, but now i can tell you about the ULL in the BOC that will travel NW because of a TROF over the CONUS. LMAO hahahah

And yes you are correct, it is becoming more and more apparent that this 96L will not be a threat, but the way immiedately behind it will develop and the ridging is being forcast to build back in which could bring it right into the US East coast.

As i posted the GFS had forcasted that this wave was going to slam right into S Florida within 2 weeks, then the next run it pulled it north of the bahamas and now its not forcasting that. So we will see what the next couple of runs say, as we know nothing is set in stone at this point with it farther out.

Also there are some waves that will probably be making it into the caribbean without developing, which is a hotbed for devlopement. So keep an eye out there. Anything that develops there has a FARRRRR greater threat to the US than these Cape Verde storms

STATE COLLEGE, PA, May 15, 2006-The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center, led by Chief Forecaster Joe *******i, today released its 2006 hurricane season forecast. An active hurricane season appears imminent, which could have major repercussions for the U.S. economy and the one in six Americans who live on the Eastern Seaboard or along the western Gulf of Mexico.

For the 2006 Hurricane Season-which traditionally runs from June 1 through November 30-*******i and his team are forecasting that six tropical cyclones will make landfall in the U.S. Five of these landfalling storms are likely to be hurricanes, with three being major hurricanes of Category 3 or greater.

"The 2006 season will be a creeping threat," said *******i. "Early in the season-June and July-the Texas Gulf Coast faces the highest likelihood of a hurricane strike, possibly putting Gulf energy production in the line of fire. As early as July, and through much of the rest of the season, the highest level of risk shifts to the Carolinas. From mid-August into early October, the window is open for hurricane strikes to spread northward to the more densely populated Northeast coast. At the very end of the season, southern Florida also faces significant hurricane risk."

"There are few areas of the U.S. East Coast and Gulf of Mexico that will not be in the bull's eye at some point this season," said Ken Reeves, AccuWeather's Director of Forecast Operations. Ironically, though, the region that was hammered the hardest last year-the central and eastern Gulf Coast-has one of the lower probabilities of receiving another major hurricane strike in 2006."

Added Reeves, "This is not to say that hard-hit New Orleans has nothing to worry about. Because the city's defenses have been so compromised by Hurricane Katrina, even a glancing blow from a hurricane elsewhere could spell trouble for the city."

5 landfall hurricanes? man, was that estimate waaaaaay off. there is still a chance of landfall for the remainder of this year, but, IMO, better luck next year.......

Ecoloclean Industries Announces Indication of Acceptance of Its 'Diesel Pure' Device to Be Used in South America


By PR Newswire
Last Update: 9/25/2006 11:39:27 AM Data provided by

CRYSTAL CITY, Texas, Sept 25, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Ecoloclean Industries, Inc. (ECCI), announced today that World Environmental Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Ecoloclean Industries, Inc., has received confirmation from a large equipment distributor in Bogota, Colombia, indicating the completion of their final evaluation of the "Diesel Pure" device and their plans for preceding with plans for the distribution of the "Diesel-Pure" unit throughout Colombia, Chile and other South American Countries.

South America has much greater fuel contamination than the U.S. While a shift to compressed gas as an uncontaminated fuel source alternative is the current direction being taken, the expense of conversion many companies and individuals will face is cost prohibitive. The "Diesel-Pure" unit is a mechanical device that can be mounted on any combustion engine using a liquid petroleum based fuel (gasoline and/or diesel). Once the fuel passes through the unit and into the fuel intake system, all dirt, water and debris is removed delivering 99% pure fuel to the engine. There is a filter to replace, however, the life expectancy of the unit is over 1,000,000 miles or 35,000 hours of run time. A demonstration video can be viewed at http://www.diesel-pure.com .

The "Diesel-Pure" unit has the capability to remove water, silt, sand and other contaminants commonly found in diesel fuels, and can also be used to clean gasoline, transmission fluids, motor oils and JP8 jet fuel. Ecoloclean Industries, Inc. has a unit capable of processing large volumes of contaminated fuels and is completely portable and available for immediate use. This unit is mounted on a trailer and can begin processing contaminated fuel within a matter of minutes after reaching its destination. A 1,000-barrel tank (42,000 gallons) of contaminated fuel could be processed in approximately 2-3 hours and ready for immediate distribution and use.

The equipment distributor in Bogota has indicated that Ecoloclean Industries, Inc. will be paid a licensing fee of approximately $25,000 per quarter for the rights to manufacture these units. Additionally, Ecoloclean anticipates that they would receive $15.00 to $25.00 per unit as a manufacturing fee for each unit sold. All units will be manufactured in Colombia or other South American Countries, relieving Ecoloclean Industries, Inc. of any manufacturing, export fees and/or associated costs.

Holy smokes was that buying pressure LMAO. like 50,000 shares all day, and then boom all the sudden i look and were at .078, 08, 084 and having monster volume come in. In a little over 30 minutes we went over 1.25M. WOW.

Pretty big news, and the crazy thing about the run was that it mainly was NOT retail buying. It was MAXM, SBSH, BEST, etc, not really UBSS or NITE on the bid.

That chart sure is a beauty and lots of people are now buying into ECCI calling for a break of the .1 resistence this week.

GFS now for 5 days forcasting a Hurricane to enter the caribbean late this week and early next week and some of the runs have it hitting South FLorida and others East coast of florida.

Would like to see ECCI close at .075 or above today to keep building the chart. man it looks good right now, all the indicators turning off the bottom with the MACD getting ready to cross and the SAR at .103.

last year early september this thing ran like mad, notice any similarities in the weekly chart looking at now and then? granted hurricane season was bad last year, but this company has other options, ones we are seeing unfold. i still expect more news.

Great day today. Continuing its inching up - preparing for monster breakout.

Look at that chart - textbook.
Higher highs, higher lows.
MACD close to crossing signifying major reversal
Indicators all turning up off bottom
SAR dropping and will probably be at around .099 tommorrow

Buying pressure was there all day today.
tons of chatter about an imment breakout for ecci on the various boards.

I like the situation. Lookin for .1+ in the next 4 days imo.

Have a good night all.

Currently there are 3 areas on interest.

one 96L is in the central atlantic, probably will become a depression or minimal trop storm but probably no threat to land.

two, new african wave coming into c atlantic. GFS and other global models were intensfying this into a hurricane and had to apporcahing the islands for days on end, with some models having it hit into both south or east florida

three, SW caribbean, down near panama there is a "blob" that is beginning to ciruclate and the NOGAPS intenfsyies it into a storm as well, and with the climatology pattern we have now, most storms that form in this part of the year in this area, normally hit florida. Texas is near 0%. and the odds go up the farther east you go. keep an eye out on this one.
 
Posted by 100stacks on :
 
I was watching the weather channel last night and when they had the tropical update they said over the last 100 years depressions have formed something like 130 times in September and 110 in October. The catch is that in October they formed closer to the US>.
