Built To Spill, "Car"

I wanna see movies of my dreams.

The RO Report, "Birthday" Edition

It was a pretty crazy week around here. The SPY had nearly a 10 point range and finished at the high, I went from being down on the year to green, and Jon Stewart taught Jim Cramer that you can be informative and funny at the same time.

You have to either hand it to the bulls or wonder where the fuck the bears went... I'd say that after the bounce on Tuesday that the market has acted pretty perfectly. Still, despite the good action I lowered my exposure in my swing account.

We're still in a bear market.

Anyway, it wasn't a good day for the RO. The market basically churned around. One bright spot was the volume, which came in over 1.5 billion again. So out of 26 traders today, 15 were gross positive or 58%. 5 traders made over $1,000 gross and 6 lost over $1,000 gross. I was #4 of 26. Happy.

Tomorrow is my birthday. How about you show me some love by Digging some of my old articles if you haven't already? One. Two. Three. Thank you very much. Have a great weekend and I'll see you all on Monday.

Week In Review: Jim Cramer versus Jon Stewart Edition!

The little blue guy represents you.

High-speed rail finally coming to the US. Of course, California leads the way.

Sure unemployment is soaring but the Treasury Department needs lots of help and fast. Send resumes.

People still like the dollar... Funny. I remember back in the fall, people on "the Fly's" site were saying we'd be on the Amero by now.

The problem, according to this humble blogger, is that poverty is just too much fun!

Wow, Washington makes a promise and then reneges... first time ever!

The Reformed Broker, a man who knows all about anal rape, gives Bernie Madoff some advice about which prison gang to join.

Look, if you ever get pulled over for drinking and driving, don't use the old "It's cool, I'm a country" excuse.

Remember that dude from who was always talking about naked short selling? He seemed way into conspiracies and stuff? Here's what he founded to expose the financial media... Deep Capture. Obviously, he didn't think about the unfortunate double-entendre possibilites of that name.

There is a bottom to the market. You can find it at foreclosure auctions all across the country.

Brian from Alphatrends imagines what a possible bottom might look like... the part that is ensquared (is that a word?) in yellow is fictional, but I like it.

How can you not link a site called Gloomberg News?

Finally! The Condo Fucks have a new album out. It's called Fuckbook. Okay, actually it's one of my favorite bands, Yo La Tengo in disguise. Best fake band name ever?
