Barry Manilow, "Copacabana"

Awful. Worse, I'm not even sure if I'll get that history post up tomorrow. Time has been short.

The RO Report, "Surfing" Edition

When I surf, I generally use my longboard. And waves that are good for longboarding tend to be more forgiving than a good shortboarding wave which is typically steeper and faster.

Due to some utter stupidity during my last hour of trade, I nearly "manservanted" myself on a day I knew wasn't good for trading. As punishment, I took my shortboard out and head to the shore. I'm an awful shortboarder and I took some nasty wipeouts...

Anyway, the RO managed to have a solid day. The early morning run in gold and commodities was played well by a number of traders.

Out of 28 traders today, 17 were gross positive or 68%. 6 traders made over $1,000 gross and 4 traders lost over $1,000 gross. I was #23 of 28. Disgraceful.

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader A, $12,907 on 75,800 shares traded.

2. Trader D,
$7,245 on 123k shares traded.
3. Trader B,
$6,164 on 129k shares traded.
4. Trader C,
$2,813 on 74,400 shares traded.
5. Trader E,
$2,508 on 20,100 shares traded.

"Chambermaid" - Trader Z, -$2,720 on 49,300 shares traded.

2. Trader P,
-$2,319 on 24,200 shares traded.
3. Trader 10*,
-$1,811 on 2000 shares traded.
4. Trader V,
-$1,671 on 59,200 shares traded.
5. Trader R,
-$694 on 37,500 shares traded.

And here for Brian's take.

Could a storm be brewing?

See? Jon Stewart can grill the Dems as well.

"Starfish Hitler" Slows Publication of "Sympathy For The Maria" History Post

I made a valiant effort, but was unable to defeat this thug in time to publish my weekly history post. It will be up tomorrow.

For the remainder of the day, I will resort to my third-tier blogging skills to provide you with enjoyment. Perhaps I will punish myself by watching a Dennis Kneale segment.
