ETF Musings

By -

With the Dow exploding 0.07% today, it doesn’t exactly make for electrifying market discussion, so I thought I’d share a few thoughts about some select ETFs. These happened to load in reverse alphabetical order, so here we go……..

Consumer Staples has been a pretty big point of frustration for me. Over the past couple of weeks, it’s been terribly strong, managing to reach its intermediate-term descending trendline. Frankly it needs to weaken, and fast, in order to maintain its bearish configuration.



Broken Wings

By -

I have been traveling since Thursday (I’m usually active enough that people can’t tell, so I didn’t make a big stink about it this time), but it is sort of like blogging with one arm tied behind my back.

Anyway, the retard-o-thon of the fake “market” continues unabated, although virtually all of my 36 shorts are profitable (they were 36 for 36 earlier in the day, but the idiot government-funded fucktards stepped in). Anyway, one of these shorts is Buffalo Wild Wings, purveyors of fried, sticky-sauced garbage to the grotesque American palate and our morbidly obese lower-middle class. I suspect they, like everything else out there, is doomed, sooner or later.

Have a nice day.
