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 just about 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.


Down In a Hole
No Excuses
  • The Mess That Greenspan Made has another entrant into the growing chorus or Greenspan critics.
  • Speaking of The Man himself, Jeff Matthews writes on The Undertaker trying to bury his past.
  • Paul Kedrosky has this analogy. "When I was growing up my mother used to say the same person caused every mishap around our house. That person stuck a screwdriver in the TV, broke the talking robot, hid the dirty dishes under the fridge, poured lemonade on the Roger Whittaker album, etc. Who was it? NotMe -- or Not Me, to be linguistically precise, because that it was what my brothers and I used to always say when accused: "Not me! Not me!"
  • Just an aside from personal experience, but that doesn't work as well when your siblings are 11 and 14 years older and don't live at home any more.

Over Now
  • 24/7 Wall St. wonders whether OPEC sees a recession.
  • Maybe they were yapping with Sir Alan. The Capital Speculator writes on the latest warning pundit.
  • The Green One is still way more optimistic than Merrill (MER) as Barry notes.

Would?
  • Zachstocks is banking on LFT.
  • Contrary Canary charts the IBD names trading under $20.
  • CXO Advisory looks at the merits of staying out of the market when it is below the 200 Day MA (hat tip Abnormal Returns).
  • Short answer is that it helps avoid volatility, but doesn't do much for overall returns.
  • Dr. Brett breaks down market moves by time of day.
  • Under the Volatility Hood: Financial Edition, via VIX and More.
  • Big Wag of the Finger to Schwab (SCHW) shoving ex-CyberTraders to the curb. And in an unrelated story, Trader Mike is looking for a new broker.
