  • From my favorite point and figurer: " Incredibly, as of 1:46 p.m. no semiconductor buy signals for this group. remains bearish for short-term and very bearish for longer-term as this inability to generate new buy signals reflects a serious lack of participation and demand within the group.

  • PPI ex-food, energy, healthcare, tuition, toothpaste, schnitzel...

  • At a camping area of Baker Lake, WA, Fish and Wildlife agents found a black bear passed out - surrounded by a pile of three dozen empty (clawed and bitten-open) cans of Rainier Beer - a local brand.

  • This weekend don't forget to hoist a BUD in memory to Swine.

  • SOX 370 is a fairly important (down) trendline and the semis reaction to that level will be telling for the tape.

  • Every time I hear that NASDAQ commercial, I think of the critters. "I remember a time when people said 'Financial cartoons? It just doesn't make sense!' Dell, Starbucks, Microsoft, Minyanville--listed on NASDAQ."

  • Just play the song!

  • Be easy on us, Ivan, it's been a tough month.

  • Is that a pledge pin on your uniform?
