"The Fly" Is ALIVE! Dead Weekend Open Thread

Have fun! Talk to us. This market is in trouble, let's hear your thoughts.

As for me, I'm in the city all weekend staying at a friend's apartment who is away. I'm loving it.

I'll try to throw some comments up, but until then, talk amongst yourselves.

UPDATE: Monday morning after a crazy weekend and I'm up to my eyeballs in shit. Meanwhile, "the Fly" is suppossedly "burning his blog to the ground" at 10:00am.

If true, I'll miss stuff like this a lot...

"In many ways, we are all stupid fucktards, trying to find our niche, our special skill-- to make enough money so that we can fly to the moon in a monkey suit."

What a wild friggin day.

I left the market at around 3:00 or so when it was down 92 points. I was extremely angry with myself for missing what I thought was going to be an easy rally to the close. I had to leave early today, to get to the city.

Anyway, I can't believe it sold off so hard that last 40 minutes or so... crazy stuff. Glad to see that next week will be another interesting one because I messed up some huge opportunities today.

I won't be posting a daily. I'm amazed I found the time to post this. Why do I feel a weird responsibility to this blog?

Congrats to the VOers for posting a great day.

Have a good weekend. I'll throw an "Open Thread" up. Please babble away.

Market Weaker Than Congressional Democrats

Perhaps this will change into the close, but for now, the market blows.

Should we close at the lows, stock up on food this weekend. And visit your local Walmart to pick up some assault rifles in order to protect your family from the "American refugees."

NOTE: After giving $2000 back to "mother market" I've lost my mojo. We'll be in the city all weekend and I may make an early exit. In that case, the VO will be very late tonight. I'm currently up $2150. If I drop below $2000, I'm gone.
