I have tomorrow off to get a 3-day Birthday weekend going early. Tomorrow is Friday so get requests in for whatever kind of thing floats your boat; music, film, literature, science, etc.
Swing and a Miss
I was stopped out or sold all my stocks yesterday and I was a bit pissed that I had to eat losses on all of them. It did keep me out of today's grinder though. I broke a few trading rules this week but the biggest one was that I really did not like anything when I did screens on Sunday night but I figured I would try a few things just to have something to follow. If you don't like the setups you are putting on, you are a fool to open them. I am that. In a never ending melt up Bernank market miscues and broken rules can be ignored. In a meat grinder they get amplified. I will sharpen it up.
A Fine Mess
I have to be honest, between the awesome pic for Macbeth by a Storm Trooper and the outline why QE 3 will happen in last night's post, it went off with zero notice. Maybe it sucked. I thought it was good. Anyways, here is my run down for tonight.
The news headlines are fast and furious. With so much going on it is little wonder the markets are nervous, though it took about 2 months of bad news to get there. The headline that shook the world? Here it is:
Paris calls for targeted Libyan air strikes
And yes, Paris as in Paris FRANCE! I wonder if the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is still working? Did you know it was named after a true gold bug? Oh, the dripping irony here.
If you are looking for news during these wild times you can use the regular news feeds but the two I like Drudge Report for breaking stuff and the best cover site on the Web, Instapundit if you want deeper news stories that are not covered everywhere else. Don't bug me with political comments, both Drudge and especially Instapundit get the job done.
I may have more later, but for now that is all.
Have a good night.
