Virtual Office, $14,889. Dow, +76.17, 13815.56.

Misstrade, $14,400 on 16,500 shares traded.
Me, $422 on 49,800 shares traded.
Denarii, $121 on 4300 shares traded.
Bubs, $0 on 800 shares traded.
Akalawoo, no trades.
Evolution, vacation.
OBAT, -$54 on 7000 shares traded.

Well today has to be one of the oddest VOs ever posted. Everyone basically treads water except Misstrade who turns in a big one. Guess he knows some people on the "inside" eh?

Anyway, so it looks like the market wants to keep going higher. For all the money going into mutual funds (according to Bob Pisani $10 billion in inflows yesterday), you'd think there would be a little more upside volume to this rally. We traded, about 1.6 billion shares today. Better than a couple of weeks ago, but still a fraction of what we were trading to the downside in August. Who knows?

Anyway, more earnings tomorrow.

Meanwhile, how about oil? $80.51. People are all talking about the rate cut and forgetting about oil...

GAIA En Fuego

Closing in on a new all-time high up at $24.68. I always love it when you can make investments and feel good about them at the same time. This company promotes yoga, healthy living, sells organic clothing and furniture and also sells solar stuff.

It's my longest term holding ever, so I'm pretty happy about the strength of the last two days.

As for today, I'm a little disappointed in myself. I thought I was having a great morning and expected to be up a couple of grand. Unfortunately, it's more like a couple of hundred! I just got a little more chopped than I thought in some crappy trades today, like LNN and RWT...

I'm going to go finish the book I'm reading, Maverick's by Matt Warshaw and come back in the afternoon.

UPDATE: You can read Howard's post about GAIA here.

A Nice Morning Of Clean Surf

It was beautiful out there... however, my toes are starting to get cold. It may be time to start looking into "booties."

Check out this really cool site. Basically, it shows in slideshow format images that are being downloaded to blogger. It's just random, but fun to watch.

Anyway, time to get my trade on. Dow 25,000 here we come!
