Welcome to the "I just turned my computer on at 6pm" edition of the Virtual Office.

I've been at the beach for the last 12 hours. It's been wonderful. Also, I splurged on a (used) Robert August longboard. The last couple of days the surf here has been small and the waves have been dominated by old dudes with long white hair on longboards. It's time I got me a piece.
Anyway, people made money again! This bodes very well for the market in September. The market has been good to trade the entire month of August, a month that is typically very slow for traders.

Meanwhile, volume was lighter today than it was yesterday. 1,279,614,000 shares traded today on the NYSE.

Tomorrow I will probably post only the VO again. I appreciate your patience as I take some time off to chill out and get ready for the maelstrom which will be the stock market this fall.
