Cinco De Mayo Sucks Balls

No volume. Quiet. Like dead people.

We're tracking for a very low volume day.

can u tell me what makes a wetsuit a 'steamer' vs 'semidry' vs regular?

pete,

No... I only use wetsuits. I have a 5"4" and a 3"2".

I quickly checked and the only thing that seems to make sense is the zipper placements... "semidry" would probably be used for very cold water.

thanks.

i have a drysuit, 4/3, and 3/2- just never knew what it meant on some suits w/ those other labels.

I don't know anything about wetsuits, but I am looking forward to your egregious moderation tomorrow at iBC.

Do you trade in an office, DT, or remote, BTW?

Dinosaur Trader said...

I have to go to the shop sometime this week to pick up a repaired board. I'll ask. Now I'm curious.

pro,

Remote.

Looking forward to the elections as well. You should email me so you get the list of questions I mentioned in the PG. Extra coverage.

Took a nice long nap. Glad to see I didn't miss anything. What the heck's going on with volume? Is it normally this bad during earnings season?

Dinosaur Trader said...

jorge,

No, volume is just really shitty right now, no matter how you slice that shit.

On days like this you need an unusual volume screener to see what's movin'. I playing in YHOO at market open then got out when I arrived at work. We may see more movement soon as we're close to 200 EMA on SPX (b/o or collapse).

I've experimented with a number of wetsuits and have to say O'Neil is DA BOMB!!!

BD,

I've been really happy with my Xcels, but I have a friend who also loves O'Neill.

found online explanation i think- steamer- just a wetsuit w/ wrist/ankle seal. semidry- somethink like Bare Polar 1/2 suit- lower 1/2 neoprene/upper drysuit bag setup.

o'neills are good- but for wind water sports- Promotion out of oregon have nice slick skin suits
