I’ll See You on the Beach

First, on this important day, we Slopers remember the brave soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. Sixty-five years have passed since that day, but the world is still benefiting from the blood spilled in the name of freedom.

Second, I've been hemming, hawing, and hedging over the past few months, but I draw the line today. I'm a blue-blooded bear again. I have a handful of scrappy lottery plays left, but I'm a weak hand and they all look vulnerable. I think our time is finally at hand for an honest-to-God meaningful move down. Not necessarily anything life-changing, but not a 3-hour dip like we've had in the past either. I offer these charts as my evidence, and beyond that have nothing to say except have a good weekend.
