Side note: They don't do good action flicks like that anymore. It's all about the cgi and big budgets nowadays.

Anthony caused pearls to be dissolved in wine to drink the health of Cleopatra; Sir Richard Whittington was as foolishly magnificent in an entertainment to King Henry V; and Sir Thomas Gresham drank a diamond, dissolved in wine, to the health of Queen Elizabeth, when she opened the Royal Exchange; but the breakfast of this roguish Dutchman was as splendid as either. He had an advantage, too, over his wasteful predecessors: their gems did not improve the taste or the wholesomeness of their wine, while his tulip was quite delicious with his red herring.here

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and and transient causes, and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, which evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations , pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

The old Dowser is approaching an interesting place on the daily chart. That blue ema is the 365. It's already taken out the 150 and the 200. I would expect some sort of pullback once price tags the 365. Plus this will be the third attempt at that 9500 to 9800 zone. Will we get a bearish engulfing, doji, shooting star or any other bearish signal. We'll see. :D

And just for the record, without posting a chart: treasury prices are still looking bearish. :ph34r:

2 months ago i was net short probably around 110%.
I got blown out of most of my positions but ended up with a SMALL gain across the board.
My entry was around 930-950 on S&P. I had put options on a number of high beta stocks and also have a number of short ES contracts out (also scalped in and out a few times for small change).

I rarely go beyond 80% net short, but I was convinced the market was heading south over the next few months to test some of those fib levels down below. As i watched S&PEE's decline get halted at the 200 dma for a total of 3 times, i had a bad feeling about things. On July 15th as S&PEE blew out the 925-928 zone to the upside i got stopped out and exited almost all my short positions. My GS put options were blown away a few days prior. My stops and exit points saved me from something like this....

"Lightening doesn't strike more than once
As most of you know I carried some large leveraged positions without managing for long time. My mistakes grew in time and yesterday my account reached its limits.

This was my first intermediate term trading attempt on futures. There are many reasons for my large draw-downs but mostly psychological.

One of the first books I read when I started trading was Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Jesse Livermore. As I read the book, I got an image of a trader who learned from his mistakes as he made and lost money. Each failure followed by larger win and loss because the type of the mistakes he learned from were proportional to his account size.

"This is a sensitive time for us, and [Blankfein] wants to make sure that we're not being seen living high on the hog," a source told the Post.

What's the world coming to if a Pigman can't live high on the hog?
