Doin' It Bloggystyle: Canada, Bulls and ESPN...
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 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.

No, T.O . hasn't bought one yet. And on with some links.
- Ticker Sense takes a look at Gaps Past in Research in Motion (RIMM). It's going to need some afternoon magic as the average open to close move is an additional 3.6% tack on.
- Combine it with Oracle (ORCL), and 24/7 Wall Street is getting a little giggly on tech.
- Canadian and solar? Must be an oxymoron. Nick at Schaeffer's takes a look at CSIQ.
- Fallond digs into the Bullish Percent readings.
- FT Alphaville writes on the new volatility regime (Hat tip Abnormal Returns... or his Brazilian soccer name, Retinho).
- Forget about volatility as an asset class. I'm with Aleph Blog here. It's the options that are the asset class. That's a much better way to look at it.

VIX and Picks and Pans
- Is the VIX decline Real or Memorex (by Memorex, I mean just skewed by the holiday)? I say a little of both and VIX and More concurs.
- Real or not, though, Rob Hanna and Dr. Brett study the market outlook when you have such a weak VIX amidst a mediocre (until today) market.
- Technical Insights and a perfect storm brewing in the IWM for 2008?

- This is sure creative, a Playoff to determine an NCAA football Playoff, by Matthew Sussman.
- The number 9 seed, for example. "ESPN's 10-team bracket. By this, I don't mean implementing this 10-team system. Instead of having the two teams play football against each other, the learned ESPN counsel of Mark May, Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso actually decide who wins the games by talking about them once a night on SportsCenter."
- OK, number 11, "Reality TV-style voting. Money and ratings meet fan-teractivity. Starting in November, 10 teams are [gulp] selected. Each week fans vote online or text message the names of a team they think shouldn't play for the national championship. Then, in four weeks, we have two teams left over. And of course, it's all broadcast on prime time.
