Well, things are awfully quiet, as you might expect. We’re in the throes of what is basically a four-day weekend. I’m not especially fond of this time of year, since it’s filled with gift-buying, card-writing, meal-prepping, and so forth. I don’t mind the decorating so much, since it reminds me of my childhood. I finished that off this morning. But I really prefer the normal, boring M-F grind of the rest of the year.
In any event, I’m going to be putting together four videos this weekend. Yep, you guessed it – same drill – – two for Slope Plus folks only (one Saturday, one Sunday) and likewise two for non-Plus folks. I am (surprise!) short 90 different positions, and I’ll be sharing every single one of them with Slopers (well, again, Plus will see every one – – those who are not subscribed will see somewhat less than half of them).
So I’m going to occupy myself with making those, and they’ll be ready bright and early Saturday. In the meantime, if you just have to watch something, you can click on this link to see how difficult it was for me to just have a cup of coffee and read the paper this morning.
My largest short position is on emerging markets, which today is threatening the trendline that extends back to the August 24th “crash” low.
