Soapstone firebricks exceed standard specification for firebox brick and residential fireplaces. 2½ inches is the minimum thickness recommended for an operating wood burning fireplace. For a decorative or gas fired fireplace 1¼ inch bricks can be used. There is no better material for the absorption and retention of heat. Soapstone is non flammable, won’t stain like marble and granite, will not stain or trap soot.
Classicflame Electric Fireplace featured on CBS Early Show Home Is Where the Hearth Is - Hot Trend, Eco-Friendly Fireplaces The Avignon by Classicflame Electric Fireplaces was recently featured on the CBS Early Show as part of their “green and clean” series. The segment introduced eco-friendly alternatives to traditional wood burning fireplaces. The segment was hosted by CBS’s Harry Smith who brought on David Gregg, the Senior Editor of BehindTheBuy.com which generates the amazon.com sales trend report and researches new product trends and consumer reviews. After researching the top electric fireplace brands in the industry, Gregg selected ClassicFlame as the standout category leader. ClassicFlame was the only electric fireplace brand represented in the segment. “It’s no secret that our electric fireplace inserts are energy efficient and can save consumers on their heating bills, but being recognized for this on a national stage has confirmed our message, and has driven business for us at both the retail level, and through consumer demand.” according to Bill Caples, Vice President of Sales & Marketing ClassicFlame Electric Fireplaces are an energy efficient alternative to traditional wood burning units as the flame effect is generated using all LED technology. During the cold winter months, it is also an efficient zone heating source and will warm only the room you’re in without wasting energy, or money, by heating other rooms that are rarely used.

When to use a Positive Displacement Pump When to use a centrifugal or a Positive Displacement pump (“PD Pump”) is not always a clear choice. To make a good choice between these pump types it is important to understand that these two types of pumps behave very differently. Performance Flow rate versus pressure 250 Head Feet By looking at the performance chart to the right you can see just how different these pumps are. The centrifugal has varying flow depending on pressure or head, whereas the PD pump has more or less constant flow regardless of pressure. 200 150 Positive 100 Centrifugal 50 0 0 50 100 150 Capacity GPM Flow rate versus viscosity Percent Another major difference between the pump types is the effect viscosity has on the capacity of the pump. You will notice in the flow rate chart how the centrifugal pump Flow Rate loses flow as the viscosity goes up but the PD pump’s flow actually increases. This is because 100% the higher viscosity liquids fill the clearances of 90% the pump causing a higher volumetric 80% efficiency. Remember, this chart shows only the Positive 70% effect of viscosity on the pump flow; when there Centrifugal 60% is a viscosity change there is also greater line 50% loss in the system. This means you will also 40% have to calculate the change in pump flow from 0 100 200 300 400 500 the first chart for this pressure change. Viscosity cSt...

Introduction Foreign exchange (forex or FX for short) is one of the most exciting, fast-paced markets around. Until recently, trading in the forex market had been the domain of large financial institutions, corporations, central banks, hedge funds and extremely wealthy individuals. The emergence of the internet has changed all of this, and now it is possible for average investors to buy and sell currencies easily with the click of a mouse. Daily currency fluctuations are usually very small. Most currency pairs move less than one cent per day, representing a less than 1% change in the value of the currency. This makes foreign exchange one of the least volatile financial markets around. Therefore, many speculators rely on the availability of enormous leverage to increase the value of potential movements. In the forex market, leverage can be as much as 250:1. Higher leverage can be extremely risky, but because of round-the-clock trading and deep liquidity, foreign exchange brokers have been able to make high leverage an industry standard in order to make the movements meaningful for FX traders.

The Market for Foreign Exchange MONEY REPRESENTS PURCHASING power. Possessing money from your country gives you the power to purchase goods and services produced (or assets held) by other residents of your country. But to purchase goods and services produced by the residents of another country generally first requires purchasing the other country’s currency. This is done by selling one’s own currency for the currency of the country with whose residents you desire to transact. More formally, one’s own currency has been used to buy foreign exchange, and in so doing the buyer has converted his purchasing power into the purchasing power of the seller’s country. The market for foreign exchange is the largest financial market in the world by virtually any standard. It is open somewhere in the world 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. The 2001 triennial central bank survey compiled by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) places worldwide daily trading of spot and forward foreign exchange at $1.2 trillion dollars per day. This is equivalent to nearly $200 in transactions for every person on earth. This, however, represents a 19 percent decrease over 1998. The decline is due to the introduction of the common euro currency, which eliminates the need to trade one euro zone currency for another to conduct business transactions, and to consolidation within the banking industry. London remains the world’s largest foreign exchange trading center. According to the 2001 triennial survey, daily trading volume in the U.K. is estimated at $504 billion, a 21 percent decrease from 1998. U.S. daily turnover was $254 billion, which represents a 28 percent decline from 1998. Exhibit 4.1 presents a pie...
Chart time frames Chart types 1 The X axis runs horizontally along the bottom of the chart providing a timeline for everything that has happened on the chart. The most recent price action is shown on the right side of the chart and the most distant price action is shown on the left side of the chart. CHART SETUP Let’s start from the very beginning and take a look at how a forex price chart is set up. Once you understand the basics, you will be much more successful applying more advanced concepts to your technical analysis. The Y axis runs vertically along the right side of the chart providing a price scale for the price movement on the chart. Lower prices are shown toward the bottom of the chart and higher prices are shown toward the top of the chart. Forex price charts are built on two axes—the X axis (horizontal axis) and the Y axis (vertical axis). When you put the two axes together, you can see at what price a currency pair was trading at a particular time in the past. For example, you can see that the EUR/USD was trading at 1.4000 on 20 September 2007. 2 CHART TIME FRAMES Saxo Bank forex charts give you the ability to analyze the price movement of your favorite currency pair anywhere from a minute-by-minute basis to a month-by-month basis. You have the flexibility to choose which time frame is best for you. If you are a shorter-term trader, you will want to use shorter time frames for your charts. If you are a longer-term trader, you will want to use longer time frames for your charts. For example, a trader who is looking to quickly jump in and out of trades for 10- to 20-pip profits would most likely want to be watching a 1-minute or a 5-minute chart. A trader who is looking to hold onto trades for a longer period of time to take advantage of larger price moves would most likely want to be watching an hourly or a daily chart. Some traders even choose to use multiple time frames so they can see how the movement of a currency pair looks from various points of view. We will discuss this concept in detail in a later section. 3
