Jittery Critters


How am I supposed to juggle all these balls with one tail and no hands?!?!?


Apparently there was a Reuters story that an EU parliament official (Vice Chair of EU Foreign Affairs Committee) has given (Hanz and Franz) Blix evidence that Iraq is acquiring and making WMD's (from sources inside Iraq). I haven't been able to track it down but I wanted to pass it along. So you know, I first heard the chatter just as the 5-day gips (charts) cracked to the downside--I've just been having system issues as I've tried to post.

I continue to schvitz when looking at the coiling stochastics (bullish) but, as it stands, I'm sticking with the Shim Sham. As such, and barring any major last minute movements, I'm going to hop home with one leg in my metaphorical bear costume. I'm quite aware that I'm leaving plenty of room for (self) second guessing but successful trading is an ever-changing mix of "tells," discipline and instinct--and no matter how hard I try, I'm just not ready to turn my lid around and trade 'em from the long side. Hey, I'm not always right--but I'll always be honest.

I've got some a level meeting after the bell so I wanted to take a moment and thank Casey, Dan, Debra and the rest of the Minyanville "behind the scenes" brass for their splendid work to date. Every level of Minyanville--from soup to nuts--takes pride in what we do, how we do it and, most of all, how YOU, the customer, are treated. To my entire team--you're a classy bunch and I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the top notch work!

For the rest of our faithful Minyans, I'll circle back first thing and we'll toe the line and walk the path together. Remember, it's important to balance and, with all the muck we've been trudging through recently, we all deserve some good times with good friends. The tape will be here tomorrow...take the time to treat yourself well--you've surely deserved it.

Have a peaceful night.
