Petit Voyage

Stainless steel rats all over the world can rejoice – for Mole is going on a little day trip tomorrow. In case you’re not getting the joke: Word has it that every time I leave somehow equities tank – it’s roughly a 2:1 ratio. Well, I hope this time won’t be an exception and we’ll see a little plunge tomorrow. In the market that is – let’s avoid a repeat of the little ‘incident’ that occurred last time I took the train to San Diego.

I swear – it wasn’t my fault – I slipped on a banana peel and fell on the ‘steam forward’ lever. Ahem…

Defcon 2

This morning’s gyrations produced a bear trap of biblical proportions. I can only imagine how many grizzlies rejoiced when the former low of 1039.83 was breached by 13 cents – just to then having to watch their legs being chopped in a matter of minutes. I can’t help but admire such an evil setup. I hope you all were watching the Zero as it continued to be extremely skeptical throughout the entire morning drop.

The most meaningful chart for me is one I presented a few days ago:
