Macke's Randoms


"Say.... um... Todd.... where did you leave the key to the liquor cabinet, just in case there's an emergency?


Pinch-Hit Randoms

  • Don't fight the Fed.
  • The trend is your friend.
  • To the Mighty Succo re: the Dolla... you "pegged" 105 and 100 as big Yen levels to fear... at what, if any, point would the currency-heads regard the Euro's rip vs. $ too much of a good thing?
  • Man... my Kerry call was simply as bad as it gets.
  • With all due respect to Hoofy... that leather works for me in a meaningful way.
  • The Talented Mr. Collins just took a break from his "Daddy's Out of Town" critter-kegger w/ a dejected Boo and a couple hormonally amped bovine ("How's the peepin', Tom?") to offer that if payrolls hit, performance-anxiety could really set in to light this rocket some more.
  • Then again...
  • The sharpest rallies take place in bear markets.
  • Don't fight the tape.
  • In response to the emails.... nope, my chart Doctor (doctor) did not, in fact, nail the bottom.
  • He did, however, get all wicked bullish n' stuff at 1120.
  • And I gotta tell you, I'm really, REALLY not seeing what folks could be getting excited about from a fundamental perspective. I'm thus all ears on technicals, goat entrails, astrology or anything else you got to offer by way of explanation.
  • Beyond the obvious ("underperformance fear, gotta put the cash somewhere... et al"). Those I've got.
  • "When reached for comment, a company spokesperson offered, 'As long as it's still 5% real fruit we simply don't see the problem.'"
  • When I just read Random Thoughts, as opposed to wrenching them out of my head as I am now, I always wondered if Todd-O thought of Hank Kingsley's newsletter while doing these (If you don't know what I'm talking about... that's probably for the best).
  • Overbought markets can stay overbought longer than most anyone thinks.
  • The SPX high of the year remains 1163.23 on March 5.
  • As of 15:44, anyway.
