More Random Thoughts!


Hit 'em hard bombers and this time put some STANK on it!


  • This is the ride Hoofy is hoping to sport into year end.

  • Lotsa fade trades today--first by the bulls, then by the bears. Pressers and guessers likely got whipped (again) and there's a lesson in that (no overtrading please).

  • Crude is just plain rude--it's up 3% and pressing to new highs. The drillers have jumped 3% on the heels of that move.

  • After the "Popeye" comic strip started in 1931, spinach consumption went up by thirty-three percent in the United States.

  • Lots left on this week's trading radar.

  • If your time horizon and risk profile don't overlap, your profits may fall through the cracks.

  • A huge short base has built up in the Yankees.

  • "The S&P closed yesterday at 1103.23, which is just above the support at 1101 (September 28). However, the near-term momentum indicator made a new reaction low (below the September low). This new reaction low is (a) a negative divergence in that momentum is deteriorating faster than price and is (b) intimating that the S&P 500 will break below support at 1101." Minyan John Roque of Natexis Bleichroeder

  • While I'd love to see Clemens face the Yanks, I've gotta root for the Cards as a function of JB.

  • Google (GOOG:NASD) is getting tagged for 5% in front of earnings.

  • Baseball during earnings? Unfair.

  • Citigroup (C:NYSE) $43 is a level to watch as an over/under into the close.

  • The focus shifts back to the rude crude as the bulls try to hold it together. While the camel must be having backaches by now--and there is definite muck in select sectors--the broader tape has absorbed the supply. Indeed, breadth is balanced and the futes are on either side of unchanged.

  • I wonder if they're from Red Dye?

  • The United Healthcare (UNH:NYSE) pressers are learning the hard way that risk is two-sided.

  • The small caps are back at the 200-day (RUT 570).

  • Do you think they'll seek asylum in the 'Ville?

  • Aunt Fannie (FNM:NYSE) banged her keppe right at technical resistance ($69-$70).

  • I've gotta scoot for a midtown meeting on the bell. Good luck into the close and LET'S GO YANKEES!
