DON'T BOTHA ME

Market on pause while the big boys on vacation. Last years vacations were cancelled or abreviated and lost time is being made up. They were under great duress last year and weren't going to be cheated after feasting on the sweet bread of retail shorts and fava beans.

But we small fries are traders and fighting, besides we don't have enough money to go on vacation after the butchery of last year (other than Joe). I also like the casino and prefer this to being stripped searched at an airport and having my orifices probed by some TSA lackey. But to each their own.

Love the DTO action yesterday and today. Trading in this range is a little comforting but be careful they can get this to 85 near term.

Nice reading last night. How bout that story on the Fed being the de facto "BAD BANK". I love it. Now they have the treasury backing their balance sheets of toxic mortgage assets by taxpayer (you and me) backing of Fanny and Freddie. DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!

Keep focused not to heavy and try and trade EGO and ANV on gaps. Accumulating if the really take hits. I don't own LCC here. gl gang

BTW I am one happy camper minus a kidney stone...yeeeehahaha.

  1. Grats on conquering the mighty stone. I managed to lose control of my car on a seemingly well-tended road yesterday.. Luckily I fishtailed my way into an empty parking lot.

    Gotta take those curves slow, but not as slow as this market! Yawn!

  5. Kidney stones-man's answer to the pearl. I hope you kept it. Would look nice on an earring or nose piercing.

  6. I guess it's all relative, TLR did really come down, but still up 60% from where we bought it (rub it in gently ;-) ). Going to get me some more, and maybe give SSRI another chance. Still holding GG and ABX (core). I've been busy so long I see some newcomers on the list, EGO and ANV? What's with ANV, aren't we supposed to stay away from US based comps?

    Anyway, just teasing and thanx to palmer and kli as always.

  7. Most of these probably came from Joe ...so my guess is that is where ANV came from. I believe that is one that Soros holds.....I believe....anyway EGO and ANV are really performing well.

  8. The stone-passing is a good thing to have behind you. I'm still working on picks for my 2010 plan, kind of feels analogous to passing one. I think Joe did flag ANV quite awhile ago, I latched onto it later, it has been a good horse. - Analyze.

  10. Homerrulesall if your no-brain comment is to me, go to hell, your IQ is half mine on your best day. - Analyze.

  11. Homerrulesall, ignore my previous comment, I took it the wrong way, I am going stare crazy and have have been working for 16 straight hours on my 2010 model, I get sensitive with sleep deprivation. Just the "pay more attention thing" got me going considering what I am working on here. - Analyze.

  12. Hi Analyze - my fault for not realizing this really isn't a message board. My comment was purely in regards to me just not paying attention to who's saying what these days. Apologies as it indeed could have been mis-contrued. I do see you've asked me to ignore your declaration on your IQ being twice mine so I will.

  13. Homerrulesall - thanks for the response, my comment was inappropriate regardless of the context. Let's make that history, the focus is on being successful going forward, hopefully I can provide some decent picks and perspective in 2010 that will be beneficial within the other posts here. - Analyze.

  14. History it is, and I certainly would appreciate any input and perspective you would have on the coming year. Sleep is important by the way, funny coming from me as I average about 4-6 a night but I know I could use alot more, kind of catches up after a while. Moving on...
