    The only difference between the historic data (1930/1960/1990) and 2008 is that, we are in globalized economy now. The crash you are seeing now is much much different than what anybody has seen before.

    Crude prices are crashing because the demand growth projections Goldman sachs had was based on availability of which is not the case now. So, demand for crude is lower and hence oil prices are crashing. Look at GM and ford. They are going down too, because auto sales are doomed for next 2 years.

    The problem why Gold will go up is multifold.
    China, OPEC countries have huge dollar reserves and hence would like to diversify their dollars. The run up in Gold is just because China and few Oil exporting countries were buying Gold. Gold still has more room to rise. I am talking about physical gold and not the paper gold (GLD ticker symbol).

    United States has to print dollars to meet the present crisis. At the same time, it has support those currency papers with Gold. Without Gold backing, dollar value will be crushed.
    I am goldsmith and i do know the history of Gold going back to decades. I also read several books to top it all.
    See the value of Gold after making inflation adjustments. Don't just look at the per ounce value in dollar terms.

    Unless you look at money supply (m3), you will not be able to get a grip on Gold value.
    Google on term 'brenton woods' and do some reading.

    The only way Gold can be crushed is if
    a) United States sells all its Gold holdings.
    b) If some gold miner miraculously says that they found a mine with billions of ounces of gold and which can profitably extracted.

    There is one theory floating around. United States may sell some of its gold reserves to make up for $700 Billions. However, there are buyers out there who would love to take that Gold. China's biggest headache right now is, what to do with their Dollars.

    United States long term bonds are going to yield nothing and will be worthless.

    We can go on this forever and fill these pages.

    Look at 1930/1960/1990 history you would understand why it make sense buy US bonds during stressed time because yield will go down and price will shoot up

    Eventually they will get out when they find there is no purchasing power on other side of globe. learn How gold crashed from $840 -$170 between 1981- 1990 and why gold price was stable between 1991-2001.

    Gold price would not shoot up when most of the developed countries banks are in trouble like 1989-1992

    I would not suggest more than 5% of your net worth in gold, but you should know your appetite

    China has to lend more of its reserve to western economies otherwise its own export will be in peril, so they would not invest in gold...

    Learn relationship between crude and gold, crude would go back to$50/barrel , so Arab govts would have not money to buy gold...

    Russians were stronger in 1970's and US crushed them to no where ,800 banks failed in 1990 and Japanese were stronger than today's Chinese economy but US smashed in 5 years

    If you understand how US crushed you would not laugh you would be happy that you are in best part of earth

    Moreover I am not saying I am right on everything , I am just writing what I feel , time has to judge our predictions.

    Do you know why economists are not best paid executives than scientist?

    You would understand laughing and bet would not make sense on capital markets.

    Sen. Jon Kyl, an Arizona Republican who worked with Kennedy to negotiate the compromise, said he will push to allow more temporary workers into the United States if they are needed.

    Also on Thursday, the Senate voted to raise the fees businesses pay for visas for highly skilled technology and science workers to $5,000 from $1,500. The money would be used to finance a scholarship program.

    The Senate will complete its consideration of the bill after lawmakers return from a week-long break. The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to take up its own version perhaps as early as July.

    hi october2001,
    Did you use PO box as address on I-485? I had heard USCIS does not accept PO box as address in I-485.
    Apparently not. If he did, the welcome notice would had got to him at the first place.

    As mentioned In Logiclifes first post in this forum,
    Organizations who have Millions of dollar In budget for pushing and lobbying their Issues failed also for whatever reason ( He did not mention reasons ).
    Does that mean that having a fat budget does not Impact the outcome ?
    What It proves Is Its really the Politics, election, People's focus on the Issue which matters and NOT the lobbying with big fat budget.
    And If its the case then our issue will be taken care of on its own merit when all above factors are in our favour, regardless of lobbying.

    Just a thought, I hope I am not upsetting the general trend of praising efforts.

    We need active participation from members for the action item listed on this thread. CHC member are taking a very hard stand on the 3 bills introduced by Lofgren. If members (esp. constituents) don't call in large numbers and urge the CHC members to support the bills. The 3 bills may not even see the house floor. CHC members want only one immigration bill (CIR), nothing else is accepted.

    Please ask u'r friends and colleagues (who are constituents of CHC lawmakers) to participate in this crucial action item.

    There is radio talk guy Sean Hannity (Convervative Republican). He is very popular for his straight and truth talk on radio. He comes in 7:60 AM on radio from 3PM to 5 PM EST.

    We could send an e-mail or call and request him if he could take time to talk about our problem. He is very much against Illegal Immigration. He always supported legal immigration. He himself is an immigrant. Most of the people in Congress know him. Probably this might be a good idea and hope he will talk about our problems and this wrong propaganda about us not paying taxes.

    For more information about him you can check
    I would stay away from this guy. He hates all immigrants; he supports the legal ones when he wants to bash the illegals. He is on FOX everyday. People who might listen to us are people like Margaret Warner on PBS.

    another common tactic is to bounce checks on pretext that signature on check does not match that on signature card.

    one more is to freeze the accoutn for inactivity > 90 days.

    I have been victim on more than 1 occasion for each of above tactics. Each time its annoyance ( writing letter. nothing gets done online), fees charged and increased blood pressure.

    Unfortunately switching costs are high due to time taken to open new accounts and there is no guarantee that others are any better.

    You are right. I was also a victim of account being frozen. It is really frustrating to see that your account has been frozen when you have to urgently send money. They do not even notify the customers before the account is frozen.

    The replies that you get for your questions are standard replies or something which does not answer your questions. You have to go back and forth a couple of times to get your job done.

    Glad to know that they are not a monopoly now and customers have more choices.

    Here is what I have understood from my lawyers -
    DOL decree, if adopted, will prevent any further labor substitution.

    Any labor approved after the decree is adopted cannot be used for substitution.

    Any 140 application based on labor sub will not be denied until USCIS adopts a similar resolution - it is unlikely that USCIS will do such a thing as it will lead to lawsuits from lawyers and folks already in the queue

    People with already approved 140 do not need to worry at all.

    I am laying down the facts here such that people can make educated decisions on what they want to do.

    There's a book put out by three 'scholars' from the Manhattan Institute with an innocuous title and everything else inside it anything but! The debate is being pushed to dangerous new grounds - while many openly say that all of America's immigration problems began in the 60's, code for colored people allowed in legally, one author said it was 'wrong' to link opening up immigration to all races (by abolishing hemispherical quota) and the civil-rights movement. Ofcourse he didn't say why. They always have to make a big point about Kennedy predicting that immigration wouldn't surge with the 60's act but why the 'surge' is a bad thing in itself is never fully explained - making use of hazy data and cause and effects that are highly diffuse to be really a true 'cause/effect' is the scholarly methodology used.And ofcourse he also argued that previous waves of immigration are different from the current ones but when the argument is brought up that immigrants eventually assimilate suddenly history is no guidance - in other words don’t look at history now! Given the complete lack of spine or commonsense of IV browsers, one can only hope this is just an ugly cycle that plays itself out and decent people recover their sensibility

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$GOOD EVENING GC$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Deadline = April 30th, 2011
    Goal = 5000 votes on survey (see I-485 filing w/o current PD thread) and momentum to continue with this campaign.The survey is a platform to gather and push for launching action items. Based on response by 04/30/2011 - IV will decide whether to even proceed with initiative or not.
    Actions - 1) Vote on survey.
    2)Email with PD, ph#,email & subject "I485 filing impacted�,
    3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")

    Dear IV Members,

    If you believe that your success depends on your immigration process - whether it's the ability to file I-485 earlier or to get green-card and citizenship sooner or whether it's the ability of your spouse to work - then you have to believe that your success somehow depends on the success of Immigration voice and these 170 volunteers in DC next week.
    As you may know, we are just one more week away from hosting Advocacy day in Washington DC where about 170 members of Immigration Voice will conduct nearly 250 meetings with offices of Senators and Congressmen. Such events cost money. If we have enough contributions, we can spend as per our budget of nearly $ 50,000. If not, we will have to cut back on the event spending and reduce the magnitude and size of the event.
    If you are not coming to DC next week, please do your part and contribute funds to Immigration Voice. It not only finances the event properly, it instills pride and confidence in the members who will be there in DC that there are thousands of willing supporters behind them who could not be there physically but are 100% with them in their determination and resolve.

    For background click here -> Announcement about April 2011 Advocacy Days (
    Contribute to Advocacy Event on the Capitol Hill ( (All one-time contributions will go towards organizing the Advocacy Days event)

    Hello IVians,
    As we all await our GCs, I thot we can explore some investment vehicles.

    Does anyone here have experience with commodity trading?
    Can we trade in commodities on H1 or L1 status?
    Is it too risky like forex trading?
    Who are the online brokers offer commodity trading?
    Is there a minimum account balance / trade required every month or so?

    Pls share your experience. Thanks!

    Commodity trading is probably the most "fundamental driven" (as opposed to being driven by chartists) out of all trading activities I have seen. So theoretically, you are at the least disadvantage in commodities market against the big guys if you know your fundamentals right.

    However, the very reason there is less technical trading in that market - lack of liquidity - again works against the average Joe. The most liquid of them - the Crude Oil future in Nymex - has a minimum lot size of 10,000 barrels - worth about $60k now. Any smaller sized derivatives (think of miNY futures etc) - come with significant liquidity or transaction cost penalties.

    All in all, I personally think that a rational investor should prefer a market with the following criteria:
    1. As much liquidity as possible. A liquid market will make stop loss the least painful. If you are a rational investor - stop loss is your lifeline.
    Commodities market is not very liquid. The most liquid market in the world is FX - followed by equities.

    2. As little special advantages for the big guys as possible.
    The worst offender here is FX. Since these things are not traded in a listed exchanges - the big guys don't have to publish anything other than the bid and ask prices. Talk about a transparent price discovery. :confused: . Commodities market - specially the electricity market - used to have a lot of the opacity which benefited the big guys a few years ago. Some of the recent regulations have done away with much of this. I have personally worked on creating some of these so called "Chinese walls" mandated by new regulations.

    That's all of my 2 cents. :)
