Fare ye well into the bell!


  • He's definitely NOT a Minyan.

  • Do folks follow technical analysis because it works or does it work because folks watch it? Either way, Dow 10,400, S&P 1140, BKX 98 and Nazz 2015 remain trading magnets nestled in the muck.

  • Alrightee then! Collins, trooper that he is, downed two full bags of Minyanville chocolate chip cookies in five minutes...but left one and a half cookies uneaten! Call me a softie but I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. Now, if he can make it to the bell in tact, I will donate $1,000 to both the Ruby Peck Foundation and the Greg Collins stomach pump foundation!

  • We've got a spate of Beeks next week as the absent minded professor offers up the trade balance (exp. -45B), advanced retail sales (exp. 1.1%, ex-autos .6%), the CPI (exp. .5, ex-chow .2%), empire manufacturing (exp. 30), Wolverine confidence (exp. 91), housing starts (exp. 1950k), building permits (exp. 1970k), industrial production (exp. .8%), capacity utilization (exp. 77.4%), beige book, claims data and the Philly Fed (exp. 25).

  • Yes, I'm wonderin' if that's reverse dandruff in the Philly Bank Index (BKX) too.

  • Hey Collins, wanna smell some cat food?

  • On the earnings front, General Motors (GM:NYSE) will drive Monday, Circuit City (CC:NYSE) and Oracle (ORCL:NASD) will report Tuesday, Bear Stearns (BSC:NYSE), Biogen (BIIB:NASD), Best Buy (BBY:NYSE), Lennar (LEN:NYSE), KB Homes (KBH:NYSE) and Jabil (JBL:NYSE) will spew Wednesday while Adobe (ADBE:NASD) and Solectron (SLR:NYSE) release on Thursday.

  • Some days will be watershed. Today wasn't one of 'em.

  • The brokers are still trying to digest supply.

  • Most of my stochastics are lofty (negative). They can twist (the most vicious "legs" of a move often occur in the final phase) but I wanted to give you a heads up.

  • Strong finish by silver (+2%).

  • Be good to others and better to yourself.

  • Hey, Kool-Aid!

  • Have a peaceful weekend!
