OPEN MOUTH operations in full swing...Donald Evans said today that we will see a continuation of the downward trend in oil prices as new capacity continues to come on line, and OPEC said they will bring an additional 1 million barrels per day to market in the coming months.
Then THE BOYS got to work stuffing the price, and created the illusion that these words were actually true...despite the fact that everyone knows they're not.
All Lies...All The time.

The Globe and Mail is running a poll today as to whether Blair, Bush or Howard is most likely to be defeated.
I voted for Howard to get the ax, but that was the least popular choice.
Fully 60% of respondents voted either for Bush ... or "all of them" to be jettisoned.

Part of our trip was to attend the wedding of a Pal's son who is a 24 yr old Broker with a national Company. So the reception at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Victoria was chock full of sharpies in silk suits. When the Master of Ceremonies introduced the Vice-President of the Company I turn around and there at the next table is "Marty"-Marty and I go back 20 years he still has the same tan but less hair. Marty smiles and says Papa Bear how are ya-Brian smiles and says fine Marty still screwing the masses?? A young guy at the table says Marty you guys obviously have a history-we both nod. The young guy follows me around the rest of the night telling me how much money he can make me in the market. Same old, same old-the beat goes on!

NYSE Seat just sold for $1.15 million - down $100,000 from most recent sale.
If NYSE Seat sales are dropping in value everytime they change hands (they are), what clearer indicator do you need for future market direction?

The runup in crude and subsequent decline going into the convention has a very foul smell to it.

FBI has 60% fewer agents available in california to pursue white collar crime as a direct result of Homeland Security issues they are tied up by.
Probably just a coincidence, eh?
Let's see, who benefits from that?
Amazingly - some are making out like bandits while the rest of the country cowers in fear.
