It Was

======

 

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,

 

it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,

 

it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,

 

it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,

 

it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,

 

we had everything before us, we had nothing before us,

 

we were all going direct to heaven,

 

we were all going direct the other way.

 

In short, the period was so far like the present period...

 

This was written by Charles Dickens, from the novel, "A Tale of Two Cities," about the times of the French Revolution.

 

Sounds very much like today doesn't it?

 

There is nothing new under the sun.

Thanks Glad and good morning.

 

Your opening message reminded me of "Adam Smith" ("The Money Game") postulating that everything you need to know about the markets is in the The Byrd"s "Turn, Turn, Turn" (the song is adapted from The Bible, Book of Ecclesiastes) :

 

 

 

To every thing, turn, turn, turn

There is a season, turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die

A time to plant, a time to reap

A time to kill, a time to heal

A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything, turn, turn, turn

There is a season, turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down

A time to dance, a time to mourn

A time to cast away stones

A time to gather stones together

To everything, turn, turn, turn

There is a season, turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time of love, a time of hate

A time of war, a time of peace

A time you may embrace

A time to refrain from embracing

To everything, turn, turn, turn

There is a season, turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose

A time to rend, a time to sew

A time to love, a time to hate

A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

good morning. Is it correct that CSCO is down 1.72% after hours or is something wrong here?

 

Check this out. What is the world coming to?

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- A man was charged with trespassing in a mall after he refused to take off a T-shirt that said "Peace on Earth" and "Give peace a chance."

 

Mall security approached Stephen Downs, 61, and his 31-year-old son, Roger, on Monday night after they were spotted wearing the T-shirts at Crossgates Mall in a suburb of Albany, the men said.

 

The two said they were asked to remove the shirts made at a store there, or leave the mall. They refused.

 

The guards returned with a police officer who repeated the ultimatum. The son took his T-shirt off, but the father refused.

 

"'I said, `All right then, arrest me if you have to,'" Downs said. "So that's what they did. They put the handcuffs on and took me away."

 

 

 

 

 

Downs pleaded innocent to the charges Monday night. The New York Civil Liberties Union said it would help with his case if asked.

 

Police Chief James Murley said his officers were just responding to a complaint by mall security.

 

"We don't care what they have on their shirts, but they were asked to leave the property, and it's private property," Murley said.

 

A mall spokeswoman did not return calls Tuesday seeking comment.

 

Monday's arrest came less than three months after about 20 peace activists wearing similar T-shirts were told to leave by mall security and police. There were no arrests.

Great presentation by Oyster again this morning on Crapvision Europe.

The anchors have really grown to respect him and didn't try to put up a

bullish fight today.

 

Either we have a short spike up because of the late pm TRIN reading

or we just collapse now but in any case it all leads to the same place.

MUCH LOWER.

 

Glad to have you around Oyster. :)

small one for me too in my IRA (stupid 200 shares of Sears), figure a 50c pop isn't too little to expect, but might be a buck or two. 10 year low 19.71, my cost 20.13.

Anals Subscribers-

 

Your suctors and stoolwethers are posted. Very few of you are using this feature. You are missing something good. Opportunities on these charts tend to stick out like a sore thumb. For example over the past week the Homebuilders Suctor was trading at its upside cmap and clearly at the very top of a long term channel. There have been other such "sore thumbs" on these charts in the past.

 

This feature helps Doc a great deal in his market analcystics, but they are there for YOU! Use it or lose it, as they say.

 

Can I get an AMEN?

 

I say, Can I get an AMEN?

AMEN!

 

And Bearman and chibear -

 

It's always nice to know when my opening hits the mark.

 

And "Turn, Turn, Turn" is one of my favorites, chibear.

Doc - I only trade the Spoos at the moment.

 

However, it is useful to get additional info by gazing at the big constituents of the index.

 

Looks like we are going down (v. short term retracement aside).

 

Please keep up the good work Doc - it is worth a look everyone!

 

Mark
