Doin' It Bloggystyle: Gurus, Starbucks, Some Ideas, Damn Protectionists, Stray Cat Strut


Minyanville brings together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering pretty much everything from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

What say the gurus?

  • Brad Sullivan sees continued elevation in volatility... relatively speaking.
  • What goes up in the 1st quarter... keeps going up, says Ticker Sense.
  • Dr.Brett compiles a virtual Boxed Set of great articles in one link.

Coming soon, a Starbucks (SBUX) store in each new ETF.

  • And more to come, says Barclays (BCS), via ETF Trends. But rest assured, all have real investor demand behind them.
  • Russell Kinnel says "not so much." Beware of the great ETF land rush (Hat Tip Abnormal Returns).
  • Roger follows up on some commodities.

Some Ideas
  • Thoughts on different time frames via Michelle B. at Trader Mike.
  • Stockbee on ways to trade earnings.
  • Kevin notes the relative outperformance of EEM.

Damn Protectionists!

Free up trade, and the Mets could have turned Steve Trachsel into Johan Santana.

  • Financial Armageddon sees the Protectionist temperature rising.
  • Daily Reckoning on how it hurts the US Dollar.
  • Speaking of the dollar, Brad Setser notes voices in the Gulf are starting to question the region's tight peg to the dollar.
  • Speaking of Setser's, Wassabi Brian?"
  • "Setzer spoofed himself in a 2002 episode of popular animated series The Simpsons. He voiced himself as a "tutor" at a fictional "Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp" attended by Homer Simpson, and delivered the amusing line (after his animated version participated in chasing Homer in a motorized devil's head) "I hope you won't judge the entire Brian Setzer orchestra based on my actions.""

What do I tell the kids?

  • Lauriston wonders whether the Plunge Protection team even exists.
  • Trader has live demonstration at MGM Grand, earns $139, 000. Says "That's real money, not some simulated trading portfolio." Howard and Crossing Wall Street notice one problem. The demo was on a Saturday.
  • Gil Meche? Worth every penny.
  • And tip of the cap to Comcast (CMCSA). No Extra Innings package on my system? No problemo. Free MLB TV for me, baby! And anyone else who subscribed last year. Way to stick it to MLB by subsidizing me to still pay them.
