  1. Some folks on the interwebs are circulating a Forbes link to an old story (like years) about Chine local govt financing vehicles (LGFV)s being a way bigger problem than Evergrande. Every few years the amount goes up by some equally uncountable number. When I first sawr it a week ago, I searched and found the same story going back at least 7 or 8 years, always quantified in the trillions of dollars. So, in short, c'est du n'importe quoi.
  2. Exiting my Yom Kippur cocoon to declare that Jimi, you're a genius!
  3. For what very little it's worth, the "time-in-market > timing-the-market" crowd is really lathered up in the various subreddits.
  4. 200 miles north of Calgary was cold af, with the sun rising around 9am in the winter. Matter of fact, the folks I hung out with in Edmonton didn't bother with winter coats because they didn't consider being outside as a serious option - they'd put on wind breakers, get in the car in the garage, drive to the mall, run from car to mall and then perambulate for a few hours indoors. Bigger issue for them was sweating while doing so - hence the windbreakers. I was also the first Jew they'd ever met, which was apparently a big deal for them around holiday time. One of the uncles greeted us with a big "Happy Chanuk....oof" that was cut off when his wife elbowed him. But they kept the rye and gingers coming, and it was all good. Pretty chill place. But cold-af. I thought Rome was at Club Med latitude 🙄
  5. Glad you're feeling better. Canuckistan is closed for the day, but I only noticed at around 11am 😄
  6. This feels like tic-tac-toe.. would love to make a move, but the best one is not to play. Like WOPR in Wargames...
  7. It's tanking! -4.2 points in the past hour! Mon dieu 😱
  8. Notes of fecundity. Ikea is an apt metaphor for nuclear family life under the ?trope ?bromide formerly-known-as-the-american-dream. A writer more capable than me could maybe make something out of that.
  9. I don't follow volumes, p/c ratios, the DickArms or any of the other indicators anymore, but this feels slow like molasses. Guessing all the pigmen are busy vacationing in their condo pools or at the Hamptons.
  10. Matter of fact, I had just finished closing my last bearish position and selling some naked puts on Suncor. Add that to your list of scary short term bearish indicators 💩
  11. Along with a few pix of cargo ships tanking, mushroom clouds, Wile E. Coyote Acme-fails or cliff-dives, etc.
  12. Didn't expect to need those lower sport levels in this morning's subscriber report 😮
  13. If the market tops and reverses as Doc visits Auschwitz today, I might have to become spiritual, light a candle or install a mazuzah or something.
  14. This move definitely breathed some life into all those aging options expiring soon. Not much else from the looks of it.
