Re: Flying high

Wow I'm so impressed. If it if it wasn't for Xanax I would never get in the plane. So I guess you'll be trading in your cute little Miata for Cessna?

Re: Are We Having Fun Yet?

I would like to have a plan for the next fast falling down trend. Is there a way to spot a V bottom rather than a W bottom?

It is no longer technical is it. It really is Ebola fear.

Just because it is not a topic of conversation in the hinterlands doesn't mean an outbreak wouldn't have huge economic consequences.

Re: Watching the Market... NOT

I wasn't crazy about the selling volume at the close. It felt to me like no one wanted to hold through the weekend , to see how the market opens on Monday.

I think we are all watching that level and trying to decide what to do. If SuperBear was around, he would be telling me to wait for confirmation, be careful.

Re: I have had a good 12 months

Yea, risk tolerance isn't the same as it used to be.

I still believe we are in a bull market so I haven't sold a lot of my recent picks.
