Musings from the front lines.



Editor's Note: Todd posts his vibes in real time each day on our Buzz & Banter.

After a nutty strut that included twin epidural shots in my back, a marriage license at City Hall, and a bevy of housekeeping activities, I've turned my attention back to the tape as we navigate our wild world. 
My current approach--trading surgically, whether it's leaning against the syndicate bid in Facebook (FB) on the first test or buying JPMorgan (JPM) into last week's earnings and selling the news—allows me to avoid sweating each and every tick as I’m more inclined to identify advantageous risk-reward (we do so each and every day on the Buzz & Banter; click here for a free trial!).

Be that as it may, I’ll offer some top-line vibes as we edge through the Thursday dew:
