I think I should go back to being distracted. Plus get a new calendar. :D

Every investor's nightmare is to become The Guy Who's Always Wrong. Ie. if you see he's bullish, you should short and if he's bearish you should buy.

It would be very funny if I turn into The Guy.

'That Guy' was in Saudi when I was there......told him that he could ensure lasting world peace by investing in the armaments industry.

Have you got a prediction for next week? I'd like to see a couple wrong calls before I start a Fade WynnQuon strategy. :) :)

Another decent week, so far so good! :)

This is not to annoy WinnQuon by the way - I just want to point out that market gains are underreported in this pessimistic environment.

Yea the press is reporting Madoff, corruption in Ilinois, and bailouts.

Let's hear it for the DJIA!

From 8655 to 8581 in just a week...

BTW I guess we should exclude the TSX. This week was an anomoly.
