Pinch-Hit Randoms


Enjoy the weekend!

  • In New Hampshire, you cannot sell the clothes you are wearing to pay off a gambling debt.

  • Banks, bonds, bucks, and bullion.

  • Good for you, Sparky!

  • Note the 3-month uptrend on Newmont Mining (NEM:NYSE) at $39ish (short-term), and the "open gap" from July-03 around $33.5 (intermediate-term)

  • Why do slim chance, fat chance, and no chance all mean the same thing?

  • I can't wait to ride my mountain bike to Crested Butte for Minyans in the Mountains. Any one want to join me from Aspen to CB?

  • Do what you love and love what you do!

  • Professor Reamer has thus far nailed the XAU meltage. No mush intended--just doling out some well deserved snaps.

  • Cal Ripken Jr.

  • The scariest part of this pullback is the VIX level. What will it take for people to show their fear?

  • Going Postal!

  • Worry is interest paid in advance on something that may never happen.

  • C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats!!

  • A fly on the wall often gets swatted. Who'd want to be that?

  • The QQQ needs to hold at 34. A break below that would be a big blow to Hoofy and his pals. 34 held in March and May and provided a good entry point for the bounce into resistance.

  • In all the talk about the Bells profiting from ATT's (T:NYSE) recent decision to depart home service, emphasis has been placed on the biggies Verizon (VZ:NYSE) and SBC (SBC:NYSE)---but ignored is poor little Alltel (AT:NYSE), the little sister Bell in the Southwest. But AT is doing just fine---up nicely without benefit of all the chatter.

  • Daisy misses Dr. Dots & Plots

  • "Great, Custer had a plan too!"

  • "Warning: do not use if you have prostate problems." -- On a box of Midol PMS relief tablets.

  • Silver - A tough day for white lightning. $6.25 held as support, big resistance at $6.50. The internals look rough as Elmer jawbones the dollar. Silver started the week at $6.75, so you do the math. Ouch...

  • I theorize the root cause is whale flatulence

  • "Don't sell yourself short're a tremendous slouch."
