Watch the breadth on the heels of the FOMC..IF it doesn't fail, we should sail.
What's the point of having silent letters in a word?
What if a word was made up entirely of silent letters?
And what's with "it's spelled "xyz" but pronounced differently?" Why don't they just spell it the way it's supposed to sound? Is my real name really Xavier (but spelled T-o-d-d)?
Hoofy just walked by and mentioned Snoop's article about how the overbought condition is being alleviated (as the market bases). It's a valid point and must be respected. Boo countered that there hasn't been any follow-through momentum since the acne emerged...which is a valid point as well.
The action in the brokers is a huge tell for the overall tape. They've broken out technically and are acting great but some pretty serious underlying issues remain. Kinda sums it all up, eh?
There is a lot of buzz (and call buying) in Hewlett Packard (HPQ:NYSE) today.
The only true failure is not to try.
Isabel has a serious attitude.
I haven't gotten much flavor on Friday's expiration but, in form holds, the price action will be most reflective in the next couple of sessions. As I've said in the past, I think "gaming" a direction is futile--there are too many crosscurrents. I've found, over the years, that expiration exacerbates volatility as the Minx sprints through strike price levels.
A lot of people did a lot of bad things during the bubble--there is no denying that. It was only after the bubble burst and fortunes were lost, however, that it became a focus. I sense that the same phenomenon is occurring now but as long as the world's largest thermometer keeps rallying, few will question the manner in which it was achieved.
I can't believe that I just bit my lip. After 34 years of chewing, you'd think that I'd have it down by now!
There is a 1:30pm meeting of an asbestos study group today.
Bennie the dog.
The average ear of corn has eight-hundred kernels arranged in sixteen rows.
I'm all for the proactive rooting out of terrorism--trust me. I'm curious, however, in how the markets (or the world, for that matter) would react if we turn our guns towards Syria and introduce the prospect of a multi-front Middle East war?
The most popular sport as a topic for a film is boxing.
I bet on Sugar Shane Mosley...but took 8-1 odds on the knockout. I figured that De La Hoya was the technically superior fighter and if it went the distance, he'd win the punch count. Despite the outcome, I still believe that to be the case.
The vision of Minyanville is creative education and philanthropy. In the months ahead, you'll begin to see that content evolve.
The "consumer over cyclical" trade is reverting today.
Would you rather do something you love and make little money or do something you hate and make a lot of money? (No, you can't choose both)
If Elmer shocks the world and raises rates, hold onto your helmets.
If Dick Grasso didn't set his own salary, it's hard to fault him for taking the money. Wouldn't you?
