Random Thoughts


I love dull tapes!

  • Ho Ho Ho!

  • "It took Deere (DE) nearly 6 years to finally move above its 1998 high. The width of this 'base' (35) added onto the breakout level of 64 "counts" to a forecasted technical target of 99. An "investment" stop of 65 makes sense to us." -- Uber-Minyan John Roque of Natexis Bleichroeder

  • Bear Call!

  • Where the heck is Osama Bin-Laden?

  • Refined expectations.

  • NYSE internals--surely helped by the fixed income jig--are sittin' 2:1 positive.

  • Please watch the yella metal as we edge through the Thursday dew. It's trickled through some reverse dandruff (bullish) and has set its sights on Gold $430 (the 200-day).

  • What can Brown do for you?

  • Storage, once again, trades a bit laggy.

  • I'm just a bill, yeah I'm only a bill...

  • Is Google (GOOG) digesting or exhausted? $289ish is a level that's held for over a month and a breach below would speak volumes (on volume).

  • Stan!

  • Keeping a finger on the pulse of the psychology of war.

  • Please keep an eye--a very close eye--on Citigroup (C) as it probes the '05 lows. As the heaviest component of the BKX, which is the focus of the financials, which are the highest weighting in the S&P, it bears attention as we truck through the muck.

  • Mauldin on his mind.

  • We gotta lotta feedback on this morning's opening mailbag regarding China. I've discussed this dynamic numerous times, offering ample food for thought on OUR protectionist policies and the perception of the US from abroad. I simply wanted to share the "other side" of the trade with hopes that it provoked thought. It seems to have done just that.

  • The wishbone option.

  • As discussed in yesterday's Buzz, my focus has become increasingly bifurcated as we edge closer to MiM2. And as honesty trades at a premium in the 'Ville, please know that I'm doing a bit less "tape" and a bit more "prep" as we edge to Ojai. We've taken great strides-Tom DeMark's attendance put a pep in our step-and there's lots to do before the critters step on stage. Thanks for sharing this journey with us.

  • Hoofy cologne?

  • Hedge fund hot potato.
