Random Thoughts


Don't you mean "Daisy Parton?"


  • Pull up a 14-day tick chart (gip) of the S&P please. 984ish is triple bottom support. If we breach it, it'll will become our new resistance.

  • Human birth control pills work on gorillas.

  • The Dow Jones is outperforming both the S's and N's (as a function of the industrial weighting). If you're trading the ETF's, the DIA might be a good relative hedge vs. the QQQ or SPY.

  • If the VIX (VXN) were a chart, would you buy it or sell it?

  • Congrat's Pepe! A beautiful bouncing baby girl!

  • November 12.

  • The Wall Street Journal reports the U.S. may call up the National Guard as the uprising in Iraq worsens. According to the article, about 10,000 soldiers might be headed to Iraq this winter. Does this raise the hairs on the back of anybody else's neck?

  • The lifespan of a squirrel is about nine years.

  • Boo's developed a twitch. Can you blame him?

  • When is the last time there was fear in the market? (fear of missing doesn't count)

  • The OSX has perked up (finally)...but will it last?

  • We're seeing a rotation into specialty healthcare today.

  • There's a lot of "ho humming" about Freddie Mac (FRE:NYSE) and Fannie Mae (FNM:NYSE). Enron didn't matter either...until it did.

  • If (big if) the S&P can't turn higher, it'll put in a double top that would make Dolly Parton proud.

  • XBD 550 is support for the brokers.

  • I keep hearing about how nobody believes in the rally yet...but all the sentiment figures indicate that EVERYONE believes.

  • The Puppies (PPH) hold the point & figure breakout (so far).

  • I don't think I've ever sneezed just once.

  • Cheesecake is overrated. Soufflés are underrated. And I have no idea where flan came from.

  • Just a heads up: I've got meetings for the better part of tomorrow afternoon. I'll post if I can, but duty calls.

  • Philly Fed 8.3 vs. estimate of 7.
