Monday was a great start to the week. The Feds were beginning their two-day meeting on Tuesday, with many investors and analysts anticipating an interest rate cut. This helped Wall Street advance yesterday, showing signs of strength from investors, despite surging oil prices.

But that was yesterday. Today, analysts and investors alike traded with mixed signals today amid light volume as both parties feeling uneasy after a drop in consumer confidence, refrained from making any major buy or sell decisions ahead of the Federal Reserve's rate decision.

Crude oil prices retreated $1.95 to $91.58 a barrel, after hitting a record yesterday above $93 a barrel. Gold also fell, and the dollar was mixed against other major currencies.

Blue Note Mining Inc. (TSX-V: BN) continued its strong trading today, despite remaining relatively unchanged in afternoon trades. They recently announced last week that, further to its press releases dated October 23, 2007 and October 24, 2007, it has priced its public offering of units. The Company has agreed with a syndicate of agents led by Desjardins Securities Inc. and including Salman Partners Inc. for the issuance by the Agents of 71,500,000 Units at a price of $0.56 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $40,040,000 with net proceeds used to repurchase and repay certain debt obligations of the Company and general corporate purposes.

Opal Energy Corp (TSX-V: OPA) fell as low as $0.21, down over 10% in morning trades despite reporting yesterday the progress on certain current activities in South Texas. Opal Energy Corp., through its U.S. subsidiary Opal Energy Inc., offers an aggressive, disciplined and results-oriented vehicle to invest in the U.S. Exploration and Production "E&P" sector with a particular focus on natural gas exploration targets in South Texas. Texas has long a been the "black gold" mine of N. America and focus in the surrounding areas continue as more juniors are expecting to hit the next jackpot.

Westernzagros Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: WZR) continues their strong trading after commencing trading last Monday. Last Thursday, they reported the continuance of discussions with the Minister of Natural Resources of the Kurdistan Regional Government with respect to various amendments that have been requested to the existing contractual terms of the Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement. The amendments now proposed by the Minister include a reduction in the working interest held by WesternZagros and additional bonus payments. WesternZagros cannot determine the outcome of these discussions at this time. If these proposed amendments were to be implemented, they would have an adverse impact on the Company's interest. Mixed signals are being shown by investors, yet share value remains relatively unchanged.

Despite oil's relentless march higher in recent weeks, many analysts argue that the price increases are being driven by speculation, not the underlying demand and supply market fundamentals. News headlines from Turkey, Iran and, on Monday, Mexico, contribute to this buying frenzy.

Many analysts argue oil prices have risen to levels that are eventually due for a correction.

The weak US dollar was also supporting energy futures.

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors.

The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks - right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly. Visit to See Special Report #1: The Pick of the Decade - free when you sign up! or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

It's also about adding stocks to your portfolio that have little or no effect against the state of the economy.

It's about technology

The world as we know it has changed. Gone are the days of tradition and old school values. Thanks to technology, people no longer communicate via a simple phone call or meet their life partners in social settings. Take a look at some of the most recent headlines.

Technology has been the only sector continuing its steady climb and relatively unaffected by economic pressures.

Social networking and user-generated content has taken over the world. And big shot web start-ups have become multi-billion dollar profits for their creators and shareholders.

We all know that the tech boom is back and back with a vengeance with Web 2.0 start ups leading the way.

The big boys are snapping up the little ones much like Microsoft did in their early Windows days. The next few years are going to be intense and believe us when we say that, "the tech boom is back and bigger than EVER!"
