Doin' It Bloggystyle: Resolutions, Off-Hour Returns and Playoff Problems


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.

Back to The Future

Some bigger picture predictions for 2008 from...

Resolution Trust

  • A Dash of Insight has a couple of resolutions here and here.
  • No more sports gambling, says Contrary Canary.
  • Kirk reminds me of the January barometer.
  • How about making 2008 the year we realize we don't have to have an opinion on everything? Food for thought from Morningstar via Abnormal Returns.
  • And I think I like Alpha Trends' approach the best: Don't bother with the predictions, just react to what's happening.

Study Hall

  • Make money while you're sleeping? Interesting chart here via Dr. Brett comparing off-hour returns to daily moves over the past half year.
  • More Dr. Brett, with this eye-popping chart that shows you could have captured around 110% of the returns in 2007 by simply buying Tuesday's close and selling Wednesday's close. So far that's underperforming in '08!
  • Slope of Hope has some bearish-looking Diamond patterns.
  • Bill Rempel studies a mix of some trading systems.
  • My First Million at 33 writes on controlling risks.

Bowling for Soup

  • I'm totally against a college football playoff. The whole season is a playoff. This season was just about the best ever in terms of multitude of do-or-die games, and teams not winning those do-or-die games.
  • A playoff at the end of the season? USC-Stanford, West Virginia-Pitt, Oklahoma-Texas Tech, LSU-Arkansas: All would have been rendered meaningless.
  • OK, the last one turned out to be just that, except it sure seemed like LSU was done when it happened.
  • The most popular next step is some sort of "Plus One" format, but what does that solve? As Dan Shanoff asks, who plays the LSU-Ohio State winner? Georgia? USC? Oklahoma? Virginia Tech?
