Random Thoughts


Hoofy! You're not acting like the bull I fell in love with!


  • I always have my best thoughts in the shower. Not in an American Beauty sort of way (sicko)--in an epiphany sort of way!

  • Every day, there seems to be "carrots" in the bull camp. Today, it's the dryness in the semis and financials.

  • I've traded without shoes for over four years.

  • Remember DAX 3000? Say hello to DAX 2500.

  • Two-thirds of the world's eggplant is grown in New Jersey.

  • There goes yesterday's low in the S&P.

  • Tony just pinged me to say that there are so many "market strategists," he was thinking of changing his title to "market guy." Is that like "cable guy?"

  • Pop Quiz! What was the name of the bar that Derek Zoolander told his pop about the black lung? Send your (one) answer to and the winner gets a snazzy new Minyanville tee!

  • Add the retail complex to the "dry traders" list.

  • The action in gold reminds me of the "old" days when SUNW used to spring around 5 bucks at a time.

  • A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. I can relate. Relate to what?

  • Pharma, across the board, acted sloppy out of the gate.

  • The internals are edging towards--yup--2:1 losers over winners.

  • A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

  • Covering too soon and missing incremental profits is better than covering too late and chasing the squeeze.

  • If you begin to incorporate workouts into your schedule, it'll seem less like working out and more like a natural part of your day.

  • Am I scared? Yeah...I gotta be honest, I am. Could that be bullish? Absolutely.

  • Opportunities are made up easier than losses.

  • Despite the breadth, technicals and looming unknowns, I'm not pressing 'em here. IF I'm gonna play from the short side, it's gonna be fading (rallies) not pressing sell-offs. That said, I don't see compelling evidence of a Snapper either. Recipe to do less.

  • Sashimi for lunch!

  • Fokker's dad calls him Fokker. That's great!

  • Iraq? Matters. Terrorism? Matters. Are those the only reasons that the market is struggling? No shot.

  • I'm in the mood for a gaggle of Grey Geese!

  • Ben Affleck is the bigger star...but Matt Damon is (by far) the better actor.

  • We've got a BIG announcment coming regarding a new charity auction--keep your eyes peeled!
