Todd Harrison: Things I've Learned

The purpose of the journey is the journey itself.


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

It's Friday. December 13, 2013. Markets are flat today; either the calm before the storm or the beginning an onerous stalemate into the new year. 

The holiday season is also upon us and for many, a respite awaits. Folks seem to be looking forward to a little downtime more than I remember in past years; you know it don't come easy.

I don't have any grand thoughts or intuitions to share that I haven't shared in this space almost every day for the last 12 years. I've seen a lot of markets in my time and this one is right up there. It's fascinating, frustrating, and moving fast, perhaps too fast. Neil Young once sang, "It's better to burn out than fade away," and all I can say is, I hear you, man. 

In the absence of something original or unique, I thought I would dig deep into the troves for some old school vibage.

Have a great weekend, and fare ye well into the bell.
