First one who tells me what this means gets a gold star. Seriously, I’m pretty tired of spoon feeding you guys – and if I see another ‘Anna/Berk/Mole, do you think that…” post I am going to hurl.

So, sacrifice a chicken (not a stainless steel one) to your favorite deity and pray that the buck stays above 75. For the record – prayer and hope rarely make for good trading strategies, especially if it involves Satan, trust me on that one.
