  • Did you know that we've officially opened the gates to the Minyanville Holiday Festivus to benefit Children's Education?

  • Will that document serve as "Exhibit A" when burnt investors file their lawsuits against investments gone awry?

  • Will the non-confirmations of this rally-namely the banks and transports-prove prescient with the benefit of hindsight?

  • Or do traditional measures no longer "matter" given Hammering Hank's fire hose of liquidity?

  • How long can the dollar rally before the asset class slippage drips from commodities to equities?

  • Particularly since the CRB, S&P and DJIA all rallied precisely 13% (trough to peak) since August.

  • What's worse than staying up till midnight after a long day to watch your favorite baseball team choke out of the playoffs?

  • How about a kickboxing trainer at 6:00 AM the following morning?

  • Did you see that the probability of the Halloween FOMC ease dropped from 75% to 40% following Friday's data?

  • So, the high-yield leverage loan pipeline has declined from $230 billion to $192 billion?

  • But it's still $192 billion?

  • Can you imagine how big that actual pipe must be?

  • So, private-equity buyout firms such as Blackstone (BX) and Fortress (FIG) are getting the wink that they'll avoid a tax-hike this year?

  • The IMF has quietly reduced the growth forecast for next year from 2.8% to 1.9%?

  • This is considered news?

  • I mean, honestly, hasn't this been going on since I first stepped onto a Wall Street desk in 1991? (Absolutely)

  • OK, OK-sigh!-how bout some snaps for the tribe after their stellar playoff performance?

  • Aren't you glad that someone (outside of Minyanville) is finally asking this very pertinent and potentially problematic question about modern day financial cronyism?

  • Are you ready for the FOMC minutes today at 2:00 EST?

  • How bout Bill Poole at 1:30 EST, Janet Yellen at 3:40 and Pinalto post-close?

  • How do I short jawbones?

  • Google has a larger market-cap than Goldman (GS), General Motors (GM), Freeport McMoran (FCX), Baidu (BIDU) and Starbucks (SBUX) combined??!?

  • OK, it's roughly the same market-cap but still-that's nuts, right?

  • Did you know that we've officially opened the gates to the Minyanville Holiday Festivus to benefit Children's Education?
