Still a quiet market out there, but with significant movement in energy names... in fact, today kind of felt like the 'ole, "sell financial, buy energy, ags and commodities" play from earlier this year. Only problem with that is that the ag names mostly dropped...

Also, FLR knocked the cover off the earnings ball ripped, creating "pin action" rallies in SGR and JEC.

My real office was at 50/50 again... the VO got a little smoked. However, score one for the kids from Mississippi. Perhaps in the ultimate irony, when I'm poor and they're rich, we'll trade houses or something... developing...

Anyway, it's that day I hate... the house is about to be overtaken by ravenous 3-year olds since we're hosting "playgroup."

Have you ever been to one of those drive-thru safaris at a theme park? You know the kind where a wild group of Baboons run out from a cluster of trees to rip the headlights off your car? Playgroup is like that... so I need to get the heck out of here... However, I'll have an extensive daily post up later this evening.

FLR was tough on me... big swings.

Yeah, looks like after that gap up that it wasn't an easy trade.

JEC was better... but I wasn't involved.

I haven't gotten to the Coors Light yet... a few more flat to negative months though, and I'll be there.

I'm still enjoying a Guinness here, a Dos Equis there.
