Fare ye well into the bell!
- BJ and a smile!
- The "game" of pepper in Washington DC illustrates how thin and fragile sentiment is. Still, those kids are in need of a serious "time out."
- The semis--up 2% and testing the downtrend this morning--have given back most of their gains.
- "It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." --Henry Ford
- Mini-Minyan Mailbag: "Toddo, Long time no speak. With regard to your Semis comment (the short side is crowded), I urge you to check out the put/call open interest configuration. It is NOT saying that sentiment is bearish at all. The SMH put/call is in the lowest 10 percentile over the last 53 weeks despite SEMIS having gotten crushed...Short interest tells a similar story. Just wanted to share. Peace to you. Minyan Faysal from Beirut Lebanon."
