The Higher We Soar

It is Friedrich Nietzsche who we attribute to having said that ‘the higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.’ He actually went on to coin several other flight related quotes, but as ole’ Friedrich kicked the bucket in late 1900 I doubt that he actually ever boarded anything resembling a real aircraft. Because had he done that he would invariably have rephrased it to ‘the higher we soar, the smaller appear the ones [on the ground] who cannot fly.’

Clearly and rather understandably being a product of his time Nietzsche contemplated flight from the perspective of an earth bound observer. Because I can tell you from [...]

End Of The Road?

A slowing of the trend in the S&P 500 over the past few sessions has evolved into a more pronounced sell off overnight, and by the time you read this my ongoing E-Mini long campaign may have already met its maker. And that would be perfectly fine as we’ve been riding this rally way beyond expectation. And I mean that in a strictly technical sense and not an emotional one. A 3R or 4R winner is considered a very good run these days, especially given the increase in intra-day volatility over the past few years.

Still Room To The Top

It’s lonely at the top, so the saying goes. But we’re not even at the top yet and I am already noticing a distinct lack of good company. I was pondering a bit yesterday on the fact that I hadn’t seen a single joyful comment regarding the ongoing two week plus rally, especially given that there hasn’t been a single attempt to produce an obligatory correction. What I did notice was a heck of a lot of chatter regarding the miners and pretty much everything else. The big elephant on the trading floor remains to be this relentless equities advance which for some reason is barely being talked about. Not counting of course the obligatory MSM clickbait attributing it [...]

Precious Little

So much noise and so little substance. Never has the world wasted this much time mentally masturbating over 1st world social or moral issues, which in my recollection were settled several generations ago. Does really everything have to be questioned or overturned? Is this really all we have left after apparently having passed the zenith of Western civilization decades ago? Almost to emphasize the very point I made in last Friday’s post, Milo Yiannopoulos has now apparently found himself in the crosshairs of the mainstream media for alleged pedophilia related remarks he made sometime last year.
