Random Thoughts


Thanks Toddo!


  • I would like to put the speculation to rest. Daisy has never even been in Jackson, Michigan!

  • Despite the green seas, the financials still "feel" as if they're under distribution. It's early (and it could change) but they're relatively soft.

  • On a 21-day S&P chart (SPX index GIP 21 on Bloomie), there's a very defined trend channel from the August 6th lows. The top end is currently sitting at 1010 while the bottom end is floating around the G-Spot (S&P 1000).

  • Did you know that Berger was in Swingers?

  • Wait, the stronger dollar is good for stocks too?

  • They're finally fixing my air conditioner....just in time for September.

  • That SOX 400 buy signal was powerful signal and will act as support on a re-test.

  • If you're looking to fade (read: sell) this rally, S&P 1010 is a natural stop level.

  • Nose hair is nasty but ear hair is nastier.

  • Heading into September, the box score reads as follows: Boo 2, Hoofy 3, Sammy 2, TBA 1

  • The retailers are starting to sprout pimples (red spots). That's not to be confused with acne (breakouts).

  • Fleck, Succo and I might have to talk Boo off the ledge if he's gonna join us for tonight's bear, er, roundtable.

  • Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes.

  • Breakouts are a two-sided sword. Either they work and it seems obvious in hindsight (SOX) or they're false and catch everyone leaning the wrong way.

  • The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

  • I'm watching Bank of America (BAC:NYSE) and it trades heavy. Still, the overall market breadth hangs tough.

  • Gas futures are up 8%.

  • Redundant thought: If a Viagra gets caught in your throat, do you get a stiff neck?

  • Just for old times sake, let's put one leg in the bear costume (25% conviction on the short side) with a tight S&P 1010 stop.
