Where are you, Mole~?

Fujisan here.

Mole is nowhere to be found for the past 20 hours and the number of the comments have been accumulated more than 500 counts.  In the mean time, Isaiah is asking me to do a comment cleaner, so there you go.

Mole, if you are somewhere out there, please hurry back home.  We are all waiting for you~~

The Games Continue

3:11pm EDT: While the Yen was busting higher today the ole’ buck took it up the rectum:

However, as long as we don’t breach that red line the bullish scenario is still in play – wish they wouldn’t tease it out so much but that’s the name of the game of course.

The 10-year treasuries are bouncing back nicely – as predicted a week ago.

Another perspective on this – the 10-year treasury yield (TNX) – we sliced through an important diagonal support line like butter and to my chagrin we didn’t get a retest (thus far). If we do I’d be shorter than a midget in a limbo [...]
