Tomorrow is Friday Night and you know what that means, but read on and see if maybe you, the readers, can add to the post.
Ask a Question
I had a few things I was going to write about, but I am not feeling it. More of the same it seems every day and it matters less all the time. A 1.6% print for GDP would be terrible, but it's great for now at this stage of the recovery. FX moves being made all around and Mexico writes Dollar options now? Ok. The mortgage document fraud stuff is now getting more coverage, but I already told you how that will play out.
I saw this headline when I got home:
Awesome Month For Stocks Ends With Frightening Thud: Here's What You Need To Know
When I looked up the closing numbers, it was barely down! Must be a bull market if a tiny dump makes headlines.
Most of all I guess I want to know what you, the readers, want to know about.
Between tonight and tomorrow around 7pm (eastern), submit questions or areas you would want my opinion on in the comments or via the email to the left. I will answer anything and everything that I can tomorrow night before the show. I will give you my take on anything. I cannot say I will be right or that I may even be able to offer something depending on your question, but I will do my best. This is your chance to "interview" Economic Disconnect! I know, try to contain yourself.
I actually wish bloggers would do this regularly, I would love to have a chance to get an inside look at how a writer I like thinks. I think my blog is small enough that I can handle the whole 5 requests I will get, but I can see how larger sites could run into trouble.
Questions can include;
-Targets for stocks
-Targets for metals
-My likes, dislikes
-Personal Experience (keep it clean!)
Let it fly and I promise to get everything answered. How many times will you get this chance? Along the way I may get an idea what people are thinking about and wondering about right now and that may guide some posts going forward. I do get something out of it!
If nothing else, just leave a Friday request so I know folks are out there!
When I was not at Wikipedia, FINVIZ, or my blogroll here is what I clicked today and into tonight:
-Most complete beer 'proteome' finding could lead to engineered brews
-It's not legs or breasts that make men go weak at the knees - to catch a fellow's eye, show a bit of arm (BALONEY!)
-Ok I wrote this one in jest (not really): "Study shows that TARP and QE Money used as a total tax holiday for taxpaying Americans would have led to an amazing economic recovery, as proven by Chi Square analysis"
-The Sauciest Moments from the Best Ever Month of Sci-Fi Burlesque (NSFW oops!)
-Ok, One Financial! Mish gets a letter from a REAL LIFE business owner, the kind the FED never talks to, and here is what he has to say (summation):
So QE actions by the Fed have no effect on us. Interest rates could go to zero and it still would not matter. What we are NOT seeing are credit card rates going down - now THAT might help us somewhat.Keep buying those bonds Boom Boom!
-Can Bacteria Make You Smarter?
-Could computers and robots become conscious -- if so, what happens then?
-Zacatecas 8 Reale Discussion
-BBQ related: "September 4 Ingredient Challenge" done well by the maestro.
-Ha! Paper money swappable for gold!
-Or pure fiat!
Have a good night.
