August, Die She Must

By -

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain
May she will stay
Resting in my arms again
June she'll change her tune
In restless walks she'll prowl the night
July she will fly
And give no warning to her flight
August die she must
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold
September I remember
A love once new has now grown old

Well, August is behind us, and in spite of the 14% rise in equities that the Federal Reserve has inconsiderately crammed down our throats over the past 7 trading days, I still end with the best month in a year. Thank you, Dr. Bernanke, for your munificence is allowing me to keep some of my hard-earned profits. You're a real mensch. Shalom, baby.

This will be my last post until after the close (if I have a moment in the interim to put up a guest post, I will), because I am ungodly busy shorting the living hell out of the market.

I offer you my ideas for today – only the A's, because that's as far as I've gotten! Surely this alone is worth the subscription fee you guys pay each month for this site. Or, if you somehow managed to break into Slope for no charge, click a few ads for good karma.
