Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes


(CSN&Y)

Snapper gave it the ol' college try but when it was all said and done, he didn't have the juice in his tank. The techs traded heavy from wire to wire and the traction in the banks simply couldn't carry the load for the entire market. Still, the Minx closed well off her lows and I'll power down my eight screens with two legs in my bear costume (50% conviction on the short side) and a rather substantial amount of chocolate in my belly. I'll tell ya, if I keep eating like this I'm gonna have to get a bigger column!

The NDX is now down over 7% from Monday's high and there will inevitably be a point when the dip buyers pause to reassess their strategy. We know that the recent rally has squeezed a lot of bears out of their shorts and sucked new money into the market. The fate of the year-end tape will rest with how these longs react to adversity and how many buyers are left out there. As it stands, and I say this with the utmost humility, the Razor Burn thesis is still viable.

Alas, we'll take it one step at a time and try to enjoy the journey along the way. It's certainly easier said than done and I'd be fibbing if I told you I don't fall prey to the frenetic pace sometimes. There is, after all, a lot going on! A savvy gal I know reminded me recently that if we worry so much about getting there (wherever 'there' might be) we'll likely forget that we're here. It made me stop and think and I'm hopeful that passing along the thought will help you do the same.

Before I scoot, and in the interest of a continued interaction with the readers, I wanted to pass along a "top ten" list that my buddy Jordan forwarded to me. It made me smile and, well, smiles are good.
