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.


Signs that the Apocalypse Already Happened

  • Worden's T2108 dips below the 20 line, via Trader Mike. What's that? It means under 20% of NYSE stocks are below their 40 Day Moving Average.
  • The Dow drop gets front page treatment on Drudge, via Bespoke.
  • Dr. Duru wants us to give the market some credit.
  • I am buying index gamma and discussing the spiked VIX, and can't manage to work the rumored romance between 34 year old Alyssa "Annie Savoy" Milano and 24 year old Russell "Turtle" Martin into any post.


Signs the Apocalypse is Still to Come

  • Some unfavorable comparisons to the Feb 27th smackdown and bounceback via Stockbee.
  • Count me with these other sites that Downtown Trader notes as getting comment spam plugging some palladium stock.
  • Goldman Sachs (GS), "the world's largest hedge fund," is turning its prop trading desk into an in-house hedge fund, via FT Alphaville.


And Some More Thoughts


Back to the Future

  • So yesterday, it was noted A-Rod hits a homer in tonight's completion of the Yankees-Orioles game that was suspended a month ago, then technically home run 499 a couple nights ago becomes home run 500.
  • Why? Because officially the completed game tonight goes in the books as if it all happened on June 28th.
  • What does it mean? Really nothing, I mean you'd be hard pressed to say a homer tonight really wasn't Number 500.
  • How about this for a potential quirk that can't happen tonight, but can theoretically in other suspended games. A pitcher could both be the winning and losing pitcher in the same game.
  • Let's say the Yankees are playing the Tigers, and it's tied going into the top of the 8th, and the Yankees put in Kyle Farnsworth. He proceeds to give up a run, but completes the inning. Then the game gets suspended before the Yankees bat.
  • The Yankees then trade him to the Tigers, as has been rumored anyway. Aside from shaky relief, he apparently forgot to get The Boss his calzone from Paisano's.
  • The game resumes a month later, with Farnsworth now in for the Tigers in the bottom of the 8th. Players already out of the suspended game are not eligible to return, but players added to them team subsequently are eligible to play.
  • He proceeds to give up two runs in the bottom of the 8th, then the Yankees hold on for the win in the top of the 9th. He is the pitcher of record for the Yankees, since he was the last guy in before they took the lead, and he is the pitcher of record for the Tigers since he blew the lead for good.
