Holy shit today sucked. Where'd the volume go?

Suddenly, the market is in suck mode. Hopefully, it wakes up tomorrow. If not, it could be a long boring week.

Maybe everyone is watching and waiting to see what happens in the primaries... I don't know. I didn't really see "Super Tuesday" as a catalyst for stock market movement, but I guess it's possible.

Super Tuesday... Super Bowl... can't we get some new words around here to describe big events?

What I do know is that the volume today was completely pathetic. We didn't even get close to trading 1.5 billion shares on the NYSE. I don't think it has been this slow since the holidays.

Anyway, so we have a new member of the VO, Timothy Sykes. Some of you like him, some of you don't. He's "controversial..." dude went short Wallstrip... who does that?

Meanwhile, I'm currently in negotiations with other famous people so that I can start a "Celebrity VO." First on my list... Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson... Not many people know this about "Hank" but he churns the shit out of his Schwab account.

True story.

You know DT,

Your site and the VO is getting referenced in articles for readers to see, I don't see the Fly with any PR.

I believe you have the 1st tier blog and the Fly has a 3rd tier blog who has gotten to the low point of allowing anybody to post. Even technical analysis which he claims he hates is a regular feature on the very front no less a member in the VO cemetary.

Astute analysis there...

"the Fly" has lowered the profile of his blog by opening it to the masses.

My blog is on the rise. Soon, "the Fly" will be blogging for me.
