right now I've got the Soda being rejected today by key upside resistance

the next two weeks or so seem very crucial for market direction

If SODA can break upward about $1 from today's highs I believe it could challenge for $49 again if overall market conditions can consolidate and move higher from here. This is my chart, haven't touched it in months and but my markers are coming back into play now:

I'm not back involved again yet but watching pretty close

as for GMCR has a big gap still open down around $43, I haven't looked at it yet since about 4:15 but it still hadn't quite gotten there last I checked

David Einhorn just made bank, as he was short that name as of mid October

I swung long today about 3:30 using some Dec SPY ATM calls

I found enough evidence to think I had a good probability on them for at least a few days, VIX, tick and trin today, among other things.....

I'm still bullish intermediate term however, 1150, even though a lot of people are calling for it, hardly seems out of the question first.....time will tell

@ben @ Amen

The YOU ARE HERE thing was a hoot... I gotta admit it had me going at first when I got ahold of it...

Looking back, I have to laugh... The site read...

highly advanced global position locator algorithm known as "Internet Global User Exact Specific Site," or "I-GUESS" for short...

That should have tipped me off, but I wasn't in to my 2nd cup of coffee yet...

I'll try to have at least 3 cups before I put up my NFL Picks this week...

They come out tomorrow (because we have THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL featuring)...



I don't have a lean yet... But I'm thinking towards...

MF Global, Repo-to-Maturity and Large Bank OBS exposures

Chris Whalen makes the observation that GAAP accounting rules allow banks to under report EU sovereign debt by putting the bulk in OBS vehicles. So MF Global may have opened up a bigger can of worms.

ben22 said...

I'm no fundy pro by a longshot but it would seem to me that GAAP allows lots of companies to do all sorts of under/over reporting

ben22 said...

wow, JoePa is out effective now

I remain shock right now

Anonymous said...


that's is a big turnaround..

I had heard, on the Radio, earlier Today, that "Paterno intends to finish the Season.."


cv said...


I think he's (at the moment) TIED with Amos Alonso Stagg for the most number of college games coached...

So if that's the case, he won't get the record by himself...

ben22 said...


thats crazy, didn't know that

I had really thought once he announced he'd retire at the end of the year that would be that, I said a day or whatever ago that I figured they'd let him "step down" and bow out that way.

its all hard to watch

Andy T said...

I'm sorry Ben.

I can see both sides of it, but from State/governor perspective, everyone has to go after this deal.

As jay bilas said this morning..."60 year old man....10 year old boy....shower...". How much more detail did you need?

The supporters of JoePa point to the fact that he reported up the chain....

But, let's face it, if someone told you about a long time friend/coworker doing "something" in the showers with a kid, would you still associate with them?

That's the main issue for JP.

He had to go...

Andy T said...

I'm out the next four days..

Stay short em if you got em....

ben22 said...


I was the right thing to do, not sure if you have heard but apparently Mcqueary basically saw him raping the kid in the shower and I'm sorry but WTF????

and he apparently told Paterno what happened so, I mean I have no idea what exactly he told him, maybe he didn't tell him everything but regardless he had to do more than he did, like you say, old guy with a kid in a shower and you really don't even need any more graphic description

its absolutely disgusting

I just really still can't believe any of this, but this is the world.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time
Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended
our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost
forty years."

"It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world
if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years.
But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a
world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite
and world bankers is surely preferable to the national
auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

"The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral
Commission -- founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller -- and the
Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open
world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against
terrorists. They are fighting against citizens."
