One of my simple pleasures in life is reading the Daily Post, which is Palo Alto’s own little daily newspaper. It’s a morning tradition for me to walk the dogs, grab the (free) paper from a newstand, and read it during my pre-dawn breakfast.
On yesterday’s paper, this photo and caption on the front page caught my eye:
One of my favorite people of all time, Norm MacDonald, somewhat famously embarrassed Courtney Thorne-Smith in this Conan interview back in the late 1990s. If you haven’t seen it, you absolutely should watch the whole thing, or if you have seen it a dozen times, like me, you will enjoy watching it again.
I remain heavily short the market, with a mere 4 of my zillions of positions still in the red (and by only a tiny amount). One of my favorite shorts is Brinker International, the company that owns purveyor of vomitous junk at Chilli’s as well as some other unfortunate venues. Here is the topping pattern:
Here’s a longer-term view, which includes an analogous pattern before. The symbol is EAT.
The latest bloodthirsty attack by the religion of peace caused the ES to collapse by a tiny fraction of a percent for a couple of hours last night, but bulls seem to have a penchant for terror attacks, so all is well again. In spite of dead children and hundreds of injured innocents, the bulls are bidding up assets to prices never-before-seen.
As a chartist, I find the symmetry of these triangles rather interesting, although obviously I’d prefer we not break to the upside.
