These are listed in reverse chronological order.

Mark Hulbert has a piece this morning at MarketWatch in which he de-correlates the first Fed interest rate hike from any supposedly corresponding stock market movements. I agree with some but not all of what he writes. Let’s take it a chunk at a time.
I have been waiting (impatiently, which is kind of how I roll) for the USD/JPY to break. I think the time is here. I would normally post this in Slope+, since it’s a really good idea, but I’ve been all thumbs lately with my FOREX trades, so I figured I’d risk it on the unwashed masses instead. In any event, I am (once again) long the Yen; if we can get a good break of the pattern below, it’s party time, and my Slope+ forex curse will be over.
