Real time snapshot gif ..

Off topic, but that's so cool! How did you do that?
I don't know with Windows as I am on Linux.
With Linux I used a screen recorder to capture in ogv format, named to out.ogv ..

First install this:
sudo apt-get install imagemagick mplayer gtk-recordmydesktop

That's the required stuff, ImageMagick, MPlayer and Desktop Recorder. Then use Desktop Recorder to capture a portion of the screen/application to use as the screencast. After the Desktop Recorder has saved the recording into an OGV video, MPlayer will be used to capture JPEG screenshots, saving them into the 'output' directory.

In terminal:
mplayer -ao null out.ogv -vo jpeg:outdir=output

Use ImageMagick to convert the screenshots into an animated gifs.
convert output/* output.gif

You can optimize the screenshots this way:
convert output.gif -fuzz 10% -layers Optimize optimised.gif

another way to optimize gif is to use gifsicle: gifsicle -O in.gif -o out.gif I just tried and got 100x reduction in file size.

(If you are using Ubuntu, Byzanz will do the job for you - but you need to install from a ppa as not in the repos.).

yes, it seems like buyers are concerned about the investigation into SNH in Germany - people don't trust management any more, perhaps with good reason

what link are you using Moonraker?

Agreed, the investigation is holding the price back, plus DAX is down. However index tracker funds still need to include SNH which should lend good support.
Price should go to R90/R100 in 2 months or so.

Looks like 'long' because he is taking physical delivery of the shares; with 'short' he would be delivering ?

I know right? I will never understand the markets. If there ever was a reason to believe that the SA economy is heading for rock bottom, now would be that time. Yet the market is not doing poorly at all. In fact I am well up for the day. MAKES NO SENSE!!!!

most shares that have earnings that are USD related (or any foreign currency basically) should be up, as for every USD they earn, they now get more Rands

Because you have rand hedge stuff - the SA Inc stocks are suffering. Eg. local REITS down 8-10% following the long bond yield which is up to 9,5% from 8,8% yesterday. Offshore REITS like CCO RPL NEPI all up nicely.

I understand that principle but then why is Santova struggle like that today? They have a pretty serious offshore stamp. And what I mostly struggle to understand is why the ALSI did not take a nosedive today. It has been trading pretty flat all day and was even up for a while.
