    INO.com News - Bernanke: Inflation Low, Economy Still Needs Support From Fed

    That screaming whistle you hear is the FRN dropping like a stone. @ 10:58 EST it was -$0.345 (44%) lower than opening and it opened at -$0.02 from yesterday's open. Coupled with China's interest rate adjustments and unrest and uncertainty in the Middle East...the pot is coming to a boil.

    That is 0.345%. (Otherwise, gold would be in the 2500 range.)

    It was -$0.345, I am quite positive. It has bounced back up a little...currently trading at -$0.14 (-0.18%).

    If you don't believe the FRN values are dropping, just take a look at how the food prices are climbing.

    I recently was disgusted to find that my favorite material: 6061 T-6 aluminum rod ( 3/4 inch) went from $27.40 to over $75.00 here for a 12 foot piece! Since when did aluminum become a "precious metal"?
    I saw wheat products went up 127%, and a lot more increases in almost everything!

    What is the weight of the piece and i can tell you how much it should be for the aluminum?

    China is having a severe drought and may need to Import wheat this rear. If the drought doesn't let up it may endanger other crops there later in the year.

    No idea on the weight...
    I cut it into 30 inch pieces anyway to load into my lathe.

    The weight the 6061 T-6 aluminum round stock, 0.75"x144" is 7 pounds. I can get this stuff for about 33 FRNS for a stick. Dragonfly, you are getting taken to the cleaners.
