Slope of Hope Blog Posts

These are listed in reverse chronological order.

Herewith I present to you a couple of pictures that Vittorio was kind of enough to send me from the pre-Slopefest activities. The big event is tomorrow, and I'll be popping by for dinner (my affection for Vegas is well known, so set your kitchen timers). Thanks for a fantastic week, everyone, and I'll see a few of you tomorrow night!
Well, given my disposition, this is a "man bites dog" kind of post, but I've put together a large long position on the Euro via FXE, and I've also got a long position on crude oil (USO) for the ride. These items are, errrr, not much affected by Internet IPOs, and I think it's high time for a nice bounce.
I assure you, my ultimate goal is to short the bejesus out of everything in sight once we get a substantial lift in commodities. Until then, I want to try to benefit from some of the "extraordinary measures" that are bound to be taking place soon.
