Random Thoughts


This is my type of tape!


  • The Double Gap Ranch resides under S&P 875 and NDX 1045 and each time we tickle them, locals press the short side.

  • Congrats to Roy Williams and a classy Kansas team on a phenomenal year.

  • The fearsome foursome (dollar, bonds, crude, gold) are in no man's land.

  • Fresh Ding Dong (Saddam is dead) chatter made the rounds earlier and caused that brief spike.

  • I live my life by two main principles: good things happen to good people and everything happens for a reason.

  • The breadth was drekky early and while it's not stellar, it started to turn the corner.

  • Snoop Tone wrote a phenomenal morning piece.

  • The banks have acted relatively dry all morning.

  • I was having Raider flashbacks last night during the last few minutes of the game.

  • The good news? When we find our way to the other side of this muck, we'll all be better traders for it.

  • The hedge fund hot potato continues as funds usher QQQ and SPY back and forth.

  • You know you're getting old when staying up until midnight to watch a game is considered pushing the envelope.

  • I'm being told that the bigger hedgies are still short. It's one guy who's telling me but he would probably know.

  • S's over N's (and BKX over SOX).

  • VIX at 30 -- I think "stock replacements" (long or short) make a ton of sense here.

  • Names I'm involved in? Goldman Sachs (GS:NYSE), Citigroup (C:NYSE), Wal-Mart (WMT:NYSE), Procter & Gamble (PG:NYSE), UnitedHealth Group (UNH:NYSE) and Fannie Mae (FNM:NYSE) -- but please understand that I'm "trading around" my May puts.

  • 'Cause I'm the MELO, the fellow, the one that likes to say hello....

  • If you've never had a Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3, you're missing out on one of life's most simple pleasures.

  • M Street musta been nuts last night.

  • What stood out about yesterday's action? How quickly the bottom fell out of the market.

  • If you're staring at the futures and buying, I mean selling, I mean buying, I mean selling -- dude, relax. You're holding onto the handlebars too tight.

  • I sorely need a vacation. Why? Because I don't want to take one and that's when we need one most.

  • Gerry McNamara -- are you kidding me?

  • I received my Minyanville framed posters today and WOW! Casey continues to amaze me with her production abilities.

  • Silk, Jeffrey, Silk.

  • Oops, NYSE breadth edging back towards 2:1 negative.

  • Everything in my trading bones tells me that further downside is a question of "when" not "if." That doesn't mean I won't try the upside at times, it just means I'll be quicker to take profits/cut losses if they start to trade lower.

  • Hey Syracuse lacrosse, the bar has been raised!

  • Why do I like May puts in names with twisty stochastics? Because they're good directional gauges and lousy timers. May buys me time.

  • Over the years, I've learned how to ignore/avoid bad energy.

  • I covered my short and went long Boeheim in '96 when he took an undermanned team to the final four.
