Quickie Random Thoughts


Enjoy fright night!


  • The semis continue to lead by example. A lot of these names are extended but, still, it's awfully hard to find fault with the charts of Intel (INTC:NASD) or Analog Devices (ADI:NYSE).

  • This tape is thinner than Kate Moss on a hunger strike.

  • The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. Think about that.

  • The bulls are doin' everything they can to bust the market through resistance and create an upside vacuum.

  • "Unsticker?"

  • IBM (IBM:NYSE) is trying for gap fillage.

  • If Fannie Mae (FNM:NYSE) can't compute their earnings correctly, how can we expect anybody else to?

  • It's better to burn out than to fade away.

  • Not much has changed on the macro front.

  • We're seeing a rotation out of storage stocks and into software names.

  • The action in the transports bodes well for the broader tape.

  • There's some dead wood in Redwood (MSFT:NASD).

  • Breadth is alright. Not fabu, just alright.

  • Shinola.

  • There is definite month end posturing in motion.

  • It certainly "feels" as if they wanna gun 'em into the close--but how many traders playing it that way? And if we don't break on through to the other side, will there be "trapped longs?"

  • Fare ye well into the close.
