Re: November 6

I remarked earlier as how it "felt" like fall of 2007. Staring to feel more like 2008!

I think the ebola threat is overstated, but it sure makes a great news story. Looking for The Hot Zone to show up on the bestseller list [more]

Re: November 6

Actually, I like Bullet's idea except how do you know today's low is the October low?

Yesterday looked kind of climaxy to me... huge range, VIX over 30 and 'tis the season to buy.

Re: Watching the Market... NOT

Anyway, the risk premium is really widening between Treasuries vs Junk and between big blue chips and everything else.

Bet there are some credit default swaps that are showing interesting behavior but don't really know how to follow them. We [more]

Watching the Market... NOT

Have had all the grandchildren in town and then went to the mountains with my youngest and his wife and four year old. Have been out of the loop for a week now.

Volatile, isn't it?

Re: Bill Gross and Pimco

I'm thinking fall of 1993...

If I knew, my name would be on the door. I will grant you there doesn't seem to be any alternative to U.S. stocks these days.

A real correction would sure be helpful.

Sally, I was going to post about this too. There is some sort of investigation of PIMCO going on. Not only did Gross up and leave, Mohamed El-Erian left too. Check this out....

Beat the Reaper

My high school class just had its 50th reunion. There were 144 classmates, of which 21 are deceased. This seemed like a high number but I think it is probably pretty typical.

Interestingly, only two of 144 wound up on the east coast [more]

BABA

You gotta love a company named after Ali Baba. (Ali Baba was a poor woodcutter who discovers the secret of a thieves' den).

Open, sesame, or, in this case, up twenty five bucks!

Re: Blue Skies

I just connected with a guy on Linked in who was doing some work for us at BONY back in the day. His office had a view of the trade center. After nine eleven we didn't hear from him for two days. Finally, he called from Long Island where he had set [more]

Re: Pulled Pork

The 'que came out great. I was alarmed when I first tasted the pan drippings. Like, no flavor.

But I reduced it in a pan, thickened it with corn starch, added a little salt and it was really good. Would make again.

Re: stock charts:Arms Candle Stick

One of the problems I have with the tools I have previously used in charting is that the market has been so "balkanized" by dark pools and fast traders and ETNs and such that we don't really know what the volume is [more]

Pulled Pork

Anyone made pulled pork in a slow cooker? I am about to try a recipe for the Redskins... er, I mean Washington opener on Sunday. Wish they would just change the team name and be done with it.

I'm like Naj... I root for the home team, but I have never had a Virginia wine that was worth the price.

Re: Washington Wine Country

Naj, that Bluecoat gin from up your way is excellent!

Re: Washington Wine Country
