Virtual Office, -$1546. SPY, +1.02, $141.85.

Ainkurn, $93 on 300 shares traded.
Denarii, $68 on 3600 shares traded.
Retardo, no trades.
Me, -$97 on 7200 shares traded.
OBAT, -$126 on 18,400 shares traded.
Timmay, -$170 on 5000 shares traded.
Sanglucci, -$1324 on 17,800 shares traded.

The Virtual Office is currently out of order.

Another day of losses, which is becoming far too common. This market is stuck. There's no conviction on either side... no fear that the market is about to dip to 12,500 and no greed hoping that the market is about to rip to 13,500.

So we sit here at unlucky number 13,000 on the Dow, just biding our time and churning our accounts. The summer looms like a boring 4 hour foreign film... if we can't make money now, what will become of us in June and August?

Okay, onto an important matter. As you know, I am "live blogging" the election this evening over at "the Fly's" place. I will be posting endorsements and such, keeping things real and hopefully fun. Please come visit, I'll be posting there until midnight. And when you do, please place a vote for Green Writer.

Why Green Writer? Well, this dude has posted his ass off in the Peanut Gallery, without a whole lot of fluff or fanfare. He's like that minor league ballplayer who gets promoted to the big leagues when he's 35... everyone knows he deserves to be there, he just needs to get his shot. Plus, he discusses stocks, not options; I agree with his environmental outlook, and he's the underdog.

Please go give him a VO bump now... it will take all of 5 seconds. Just visit that link and you'll see where you can vote on the upper right side of the screen. Thanks.

NOTE: As of this post, GW has 29 votes. Let's get him up to 50.

Slow Posting Today...

It's gonna be a slow day here at Dinosaur Trader blog, as I write/edit a bunch of shit for my "employer."

Please visit "the Fly's" blog this evening as I "egregiously moderate" the big election.

I will offer an endorsement along with today's VO.
