So far, so good. I'm playing it safe (understandably……….) and have taken profits on my TWM long, my QID long, and I've gone long /ES with a tight stop (this would be closed out no later than today's close).
I follow the energy markets closely, and I think crude oil topped out in the low 70s. This is going to help us.
After a nice, swift fall, the equity markets seem completely mired at about -140 on the Dow. Fine with me! They can bloody well stay there all day if they like.
We're near the bottom of a range that's been grinding around the entire &#*%^(*#$)* month of August. Since I know God reads the blog daily, I'll just say breaking beneath this range is the Right Thing To Do. So get to it.
Last night, Mrs. Bear and I went to see the new movie Julie & Julia, which is based on the real-life tale of a young woman who sets out to do every single recipe in Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year's time. It's a terrific movie, and I highly recommend it.
The movie obviously has a lot to do with cooking, but the companion topic was a real surprise to me – – blogging! The "Julie" in the film is a blogger, and a portion of the movie is dedicated to her interactions with her readers and commenters. Mrs. Bear kept ribbing me since a lot of the anecdotes seemed straight out of Slope.
Anyway, my bottom line is doing great so far today, so let's see if this Friday can give this week a nice finish.
