In a dynamic, fast-paced market, I am a fount of thoughts and ideas. In this light-grey, creeps-up-each-day, zero-volume of market we have, it’s one hell of a thing to try to think of anything to say. Pity me!

Here is a new ratio chart I just created between the $RUT (Russell 2000 small caps) and the /US (continuous contract of bonds). The similar reversal patterns of today and the pre-financial crisis are alluring.
