Had a great day off and took care of a ton of things around the house. Got to watch a bit of market actions as well. Pro Tip: take a mental health day every now and then.
Missing Day in Markets
On Wednesday going into the two days of Euro news cycle the market was poised and ready to roll higher. Then Thursday happened, and things looked like a return to the bottom end of the trading channel. Today that's all over and gone, Thursday may well turn out to be a "just kidding!" kind of signal. I got stopped out of two small longs on Thursday. Looking over the markets today I entered into two small short positions because I think that things were a bit overdone. Full homework night Sunday night and I think a bunch of things look good to buy. Hence the small short for a bit of surprise protection. This market keeps one guessing.
Thursday May Have Disappeared, but Friday Never Does
A whole day may have gone missing, but the Friday Show never does.
Voyager 1 to Enter Interstellar Space
As if the space news could get any better, Voyager 1 is about to get free of the local environment where our Sun affects space, and into the open interstellar space. Some visual cues for what that means:
Some funnies for laughs.
I don't think this will end well in the snow:

My friend Josh Brown, The Reformed broker, has been sick this week and it was a bit scary as he dropped off the map for a bit. Luckily Josh is doing ok, you can leave him a message on this post. One of the comments mentioned they were going to start a "save Ferris" movement and of course it put me in mind of that great film.
My favorite scene (of many) in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is the Abe Froman scene:
I really like the new version of the film "Get Carter" and a great exchange happens at the 0:45 mark of this clip between Stallone and Rourke:
Melodies on free flow.
Reader Gawains was looking for some U2 and "Vertigo" from a Live 8 show in 2005 and this one is hot!:
I was in the mood for a little Bruce Springsteen and "Radio Nowhere" will do just fine:
How about "Rhythm of Love" from the Scorpions:
Who is that model in the video?
Arsenio Hall had some great shows when he was on. How about Anthrax doing "Only"?:
Ok two to go.
My Dad would always play this song last at night before going to bed. Kenny Rogers with "She Believes in Me":
Close the show with Robert Tepper's "No Easy Way Out" as it sums up the trading range:
Have a good night.
