Can anyone break down the info in this report "line by line". Especially the ''numbers'' (+6 1/2, +11, etc.) and also "natts" and "pointers". This was off a RAP newsletter. Good info, just wish I could interpret it!


A "Newbie" like me would sure appreciate it !!!

----------------------------------------
+6 1/2 -11: Demand for +8 natts in the $200 to $275 range.
--------------------------------------------
+11 -16: Demand for 10- to 14-pointers in the $500 to $300 range (from VS1 to SI2).
---------------------------------------------
1/5: Overall movement very slow except for some demand for white goods in the $300 to $375 range.
-----------------------------------------------
+1/2 -1: Demand for natts at $150 for 50 points only. .
------------------------------------------------
Princess: Demand for -7 at approximately $275. Demand for +7 in the $250 to $300 range. Slow movement for 1/4 and 1/3s in the $400 to $550 range. 1/2s in the $850 to $1,200 range and one carat goods in the $1,000 to $1,500 range.
----------------------------------------------------
THE ROUGH MARKET:

-11: Syndicate, Russian and Chicapa open-market rough selling in the $21 to $63 range.
---------------------------------

------------------------------------

-6 1/2 less than .065 carat size
+11 -16 over .11 carat size to less than .16ct size...

natts: knotted rough, difficult to cut, many have black inclusions, too.
points .01carat weight. 10 pointers are .10ct weight for example

Overall the demand for poor goods is beign reported as strong....
