I've gotten off the subway and am walking down Pine St. (a block north of Wall) to my office and low and behold, NY Attorney General Elliott Spitzer and one of his shlubs is walking the other way up the sidewalk. I stop him, introduce myself and tell him "don't just fine 'em, procecute 'em and make the system transparent to give individual investors like me an equal playing field with all other investors (like that is ever going to happen). That was all I could think of at the moment to say. He smiled, shook my paw and said he is trying. (I also said, "by the way, get a coat and a hat it's cold out here (the guy is wearing nothing but a dark summer material suit and it is 28 degrees out!)). He was going towards the stock exchange.

have heard that there's a case of BullzDisease going around. symptoms include uncertainty, nausea, and constant reevaluation. if someone near you exhibits these symptoms, try to be patient and supportive.
remember, that's what friends are for.

Quod Severis Metes
Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the Matrix. You are the eventuality of an internal anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts, I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably, here.
You haven't answered my question.
Quite right. Interesting. That was quicker than the others.

DAX should have gone to 3260/70, but it didnt, high was 3222.
Shorts MUST attack today.
I read an article today about crash in 1987. Bobby prechter also was featured and he said "no, the market wil move on up and go to 3600, but then before the end of the year 1989 Dow will loose 90% and a depression will begin bader than after 1929."
yes bobby, if i would have listened to you i would be a clochard right now!
