How time flies! A little over a year ago I introduced our Evil Speculator Statistical Tool (ESST), which offered everyone free instant access to comprehensive historical statistics on literally thousands of stock symbols. I don’t know about you guys but I find statistics delicious and cannot get enough of them. Although quite unique in its offering the ESST kind of lingered hidden away somewhere deep in the mirky bowels of the blog as I moved on to other projects. Well, that is until now.
Today marks the 17th anniversary of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and beyond the human death toll ended up causing at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Many other people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases in the months and years following the attacks.
Welcome back! As you all probably know over the weekend we’ve shifted all operations to a new hosting provider. And I can’t believe I’m actually saying this but the migration turned out to be a lot less messy than anticipated. Thus far I only had to kill two sys admins, after that everything seemed to be working just fine. The new server appears to even have a bit more muscle than the old one and our pages are loading extra snappy this morning. But wait, that’s not all!
It’s Monday and I wish I had some good news to report. But I’m not going to sugarcoat it, you know me better than that: the next two weeks are going to be rough. For one I just checked the event roster and it’s looking pretty ugly there, with a veritable laundry list of potentially market moving events scheduled every day this week starting tomorrow.
