Random Thoughts


Fear the Turtle!


  • Is the Texas two-step into the bull suit too cute? Maybe--but the tape felt a little "pressy" when we broke S&P 840 and critical support zones typically aren't taken out when we're this oversold. Still, rather than use lower prices to scale into longs, I'd rather define my risk (via the stop).

  • Full disclosure: I never made it to the gym last night--I was at my desk until 9 and then went straight to my buddies birthday dinner. Hey Lionel--do you remember proposing to your girl last night?

  • Signs of dryness: telecom, semis, retailers, transports. Signs of heavy hands: Citigroup, cycicals, energy.

  • The internals need to improve soon...the longer we "sit" under support, the more likely the path of least resistance in the afternoon is down.

  • Another quiz? Why not! What are the names of my two Abyssinian cats? First right answer gets their choice of a free Minyanville Tee! Send your (one) guess to . Good luck!

  • IF Snapper and Hoofy can muster some jig, I plan on rolling my stop up with the tape.

  • Do I think gold is too extended? For a trade, yes...but I have no edge per se.

  • Giddy up!

  • More germs are transferred shaking hands than kissing. Quick! Somebody tell Kim Dispigna!

  • N's over S's...N's over S's...N's over S's. Got it?

  • Joe Satriani is the greatest guitarist nobody knows.

  • Is there a chance we eventually slip into a depression? Yes.

  • Don't shoot the messenger!

  • Spending time with friends is the greatest cure for a bear market.

  • I've made an executive decision--Fokker stays. God help him!

  • This tape could get squeezed more than a case of charmin!
