Doin' It Bloggystyle: Elizabethan Playwrights, Measure for Measure, The Tempest, As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing
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.
William (Big Papi) Shakespeare
Yes, 443 years ago today, William (Big Papi) Shakespeare was born. And actually died 391 years ago this day as well. Ah, Shakespeare, I remember you well from all those Cliff Notes I read back in high school. All's Well that Ends Well.
- Dr. Brett on questions you should ask to handle trading performance slumps.
- Trader Mike asks whether Dow 13,000 really means everyone is richer.
- James Picerno wonders what happens when the Momentum trade fails (hat tip Abnormal Returns).
Measure For Measure
- VIX and More with some insight into the SPX:VIX ratio.
- The main takeaway? Careful reading too much into the relationship.
- I couldn't agree more. The S&P can go to whatever, the VIX can't. It's a statistic. Selling the market because the S&P:VIX ratio is *high* works often enough to lead to false conclusions.
- Airlines heavy says Kevin.
- Some OEX and NAZZ Fibonaccis from The dk Report.
- Chart thoughts galore, courtesy of Fallstaff... I mean Fallond.
As You Like It
- What Would Sheryl Do (if she traded options)? Sell some FSLR puts no doubt.
- Lots o' IBD Winners notes Dave.
- Some volatile stocks due to report that are kind of risky with real money but perfect for CNBC play money, via Tradeking.
Much Ado About Nothing
- What do Shakespeare and Cheeta have in common? Both were born in April and neither has been in my kitchen. Anyway, Cheeta speaks in honor of his 75th birthday.
- Gwen Stefani unfortunately has never been in my kitchen either, but if she ever shows up, this list of her demands will come in handy.
- Who's replacing Imus in NYC? Sounded like Mike and the Mad Dog this morning (Imus was on a sports radio station locally). If you have never had the *privelege* of hearing them, The Big Lead fills you in here.
- In honor of M and MD and their uncanny ability to get carried away with very small sample sizes, let's just parse the first 10% of the bizarro Yankee season for a second.
- They have come back twice from late four-run deficits to win. Once was a 6-2 deficit with two outs and no one on in the 9th. Both ended with A-Rod walkoff homers.
- They blew a 4-2 lead with two-outs/no one on in the 9th with Mariano pitching and giving up a three run homer to a backup infielder named Marco Scuttaro. Who only has like one other hit all season.
- They blew a 6-2 eighth inning lead at Fenway on Friday, again via Mariano.
- They gave up homers to four consecutive batters last night, which hasn't happened in the AL since 1963. Joe Morgan helpfully pointed out that both times all four homers were in the same inning. He probably thinks all walk-off homers are at home also.
- Wait a sec, they are all at home.
- Yes, that's a really odd 17 game stretch. They'd be like 6-11 or worse without A-Rod, or 10-7 with A-Rod but without Mariano. Go figure.
