Virtual Office, -$304. SPY, -$2.40, $139.39.

Me, $105 on 27,600 shares traded.
Denarii, $29 on 3000 shares traded.
Retardo, nada.
OBAT, -$28 on 9800 shares traded.
Tokyo, -$410 on 1289 shares traded.

Oil ripped again. It's now at $133.73 a barrel.

Everyone is blaming everyone else for the rise. The new buzz on CNBC is that it's the "index speculators..." Ooooh! Scary! Blame the heartless "index speculators." And if not them, BLAME CHINA! That's always safe...

Ignore that dude in the Hummer with the magnetic yellow ribbon and the American flag though... he's cool.

Anyway, it's only a matter of time before some sad "index speculator" gets called in front of Congress to testify. I wonder what an "index speculator" looks like...

There was good "juice" in the market today. We almost had a respectable volume level, as we traded nearly 1.4 billion shares on the NYSE, and the VIX rose a point, to 18.70. LEH is below $40 again and the talking heads are starting to yammer about the "ongoing" credit crisis... maybe the summer will be interesting afterall!

And what the fuck is up with Mike Huckman's stupid glasses? He's now a man who officially looks like an old lesbian.

As for the VO... shhhh! It's asleep.
