Random Thoughts


Just another day at the office!


  • Gold stocks, after a strong opening, reversed hard to the south side. Gold, the commodity, remains flattish and flirty with $400.

  • The news is always best at a market top and worst at a market bottom.

  • Mind the gap below S&P 1063.

  • It ain't cool being no jive turkey so close to Thanksgiving.

  • Flow's Diner: I just saw 500,000 hit the tape on the buy side.

  • Is this the "pop and drop" that I spoke of last week? Quite possibly--but that doesn't necessarily mean it's today's business. So you know, I'm eyeing S&P 1067-1075 on the upside and (a close below) S&P 1060 on the south side.

  • Breadth remains minty fresh as there are better than two winners for every loser.

  • What are cranberries gonna do for the next 360 days?

  • I would have swallowed the Raiders miserable season a bit easier if only we beat the donkeys.

  • Amazon (AMZN:NASD) is trading with the retailers (rather than the internets).

  • The dollar index (DXY) is back above 90 (after trading with an eight handle this morning). My biggest fear for Boo is that a strong "counter-trend" rally spurs the greenback.

  • In 2000, I opined that the entire dynamic of Wall Street would become a long, hard road. As it stands, I still believe we're in the early innings of that process. I certainly hope I'm wrong but, if I'm not, trading talk and market banter will illicit dirty looks at dinner parties before it's all over.

  • Can the Minx keep going? She can do whatever she wants---she's the Minx! That's why it's so important to incorporate the right discipline into any trading approach.

  • The weather forecast called for snow in Minyanville today but, thus far, the skies are clear.

  • I think volatility measures are approaching 'once in a lifetime' levels.

  • Discipline over conviction.

  • Bonds are gettin' thumped.

  • I'm being told that there's a new online dating service floating around Minyanville. It's called CDate.

  • As past resistance equals future support, there are prolly a ton of "sell stops" set below S&P 1060.

  • I'm happy to report that Bruiser and Slurpee are alive and well.

  • Trading "not to lose" is the quickest way to lose money.

  • John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley....what a shame.

  • Europe is up between 1-2%. Blimy!

  • The longer the Minx sits up here (with good breadth), the better the "odds" that she closes strong.

  • I could feel myself getting fatter this past weekend. This is a tough stretch for diets.

  • And so it goes...
