Euro tunnel rip off




On my recent trip to France and Spain I did some internet research before I started, looking at prices of getting my car to France. I found I could go by ferry or via the tunnel for around £40, and as the news was talking about a storm coming I thought the tunnel was safest. I didn’t want to book as I had to get around London on a Friday evening, so thought id just turn up and sort it out then. To my amazement when I showed up I was told the tunnel would cost me £161 as I hadn’t booked! It was getting late and I wanted to go so had little choice but to pay it, but never again. I keep hearing about the company that owns the tunnel loosing money, but that is no way to break even, but a way to loose all their customers.

I went by car for the first time in years as I had to carry a large solar panel for Sunseed in the south of Spain. I went their as a volunteer in 99, then back as a Eco Construction and Maintenance Coordinator, and have visited many times since as advisor and then Trustee. Its actually my 10th trip. Pictures of it can be seen at http://sunseedtrust.stumbleupon.com. Their website is at www.sunseed.org.uk

This Blog is really nice and informative. We are pleased to know this

Informative content on this useful blog created by webmaster.

As we all know major stock market exchanges in India are

BSE
and NSE. Full form of BSE is Bombay stock exchange covering SENSEX
where as

NSE is
National stock exchange covering Nifty and Nifty stocks.

Now a days USA is facing recession which is affecting world market and
recently we have witnessed major fall in Nifty and Sensex.

In this fall many investors were trapped and loosed around 50% to 70%
of their portfolio which is a major issue and need to be taken care
of.

Stock market is risky and will remain risk always still one can
minimize risk factor in it by using proper stoploss. As the name suggest
Stoploss , it stops the losses
which one can incur in the market.

There are few levels which we call support and resistance level which
we suggest one should strictly follow for coming days if they want to
survive in stock market.


Right now Nifty is direction less

Major suport-4660 below it next will be 4400.If breached then 4000.

On upper side Res- 5025 closed above can take Nifty to 5150-5200 . 2-3
closings above 5200 means 5400.

We suggest strictly follow these level and enter in market as per these
levels as these are very crucial levels technically.



Please feel free to contact us for any query.


Have a Nice trading days ahead.
