I did not know that TD was a Canadian bank. They have taken over a number of banks in North Jersey and there are ads on all of the NYC TV stations for some time now. The Regis and Kelly ads are really pretty good !!!!
No clue why the banks in general won't take coins. Seems if you don't have an account with them, you are stuck.
I have a bunch of rolled coins to go to TD bank and give it a go. If that fails they go to the supermarket and I hope Rabbit is not in line behind me !!!!
My understanding is, that in the US, coins cannot be refused as "legal tender" !!
On your SPX/FXI post:
Looks like SP 1300 is getting pretty close.
I had a long micro gold as an experiment as volume has been increasing. Bot at 1413.2 and closed this morning on a dip at 1421.2 (mistake) but could not pay attention today and my trailing stop got hit this morning.
Anyway, went to 1435 and is still holding up aroung 1430. No clue, on things for balance of week. Will likely wait for Bernanke speak to congress and NFP friday. Something is going to give and I don't want to be on the RR tracks !!!
CLJ11 is back over 100 and I don't think Libya or anyone has stopped shipping crude.
