<< Return to page 1 - Bad News = Another Rally

So many markets, so little time is all I can say. I’m sure there are some favorites missed but you just need to remind me.

The news? Fahgett about it! BAC needs $35 billion, Chrysler bond holders get stiffed, GM isn’t a functioning enterprise, DIS reports a 46% decline in profits and the stock rallies because, you guessed it, this beat estimates.

Every time I think the market rally has run its course there’s another Emeril Lagasse “let’s kick it up another notch” moment. So, we go with it because that’s what the system tells us to do. Every time I try to fade my system it costs me, whether I'm not being aggressive enough or just not making indicated trades. But we’re all human and after 35 years of doing this you’ll forgive me for saying that I’ve developed some attitude. Yeah, a technician with an attitude—sounds dangerous.

Now dear readers please understand that we’re not looking for any sympathy and Francie will probably be upset I posted her situation for all the world to see. Nevertheless, I wanted you to know that postings may become intermittent. This is all I’ll say on this subject.

I don’t know if there will be a post tomorrow as I’ll be moving about.
