I didn’t want to jinx Barry’s initial short call on Friday (not that I believe in that kind of stuff) but I was thinking how he posted several trades during the summer and was almost always spot on except for being several days early during certain turning points. Here we are again… emd commented on Dec 4 lots of data coming out tomorrow. i’m thinking of adding some shorts this afternoon, but honestly, i’m gun shy at this point. i can only get smacked in the face with a 2X4 so many times. vhehn commented on Dec 4 got to give cramer credit. he said back up the truck during the friday selloff. he was right this time. Michael C. commented on Dec 4 Son, we live in a world that has wants. And those wants have to be guarded by men with money. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Mr. Ritholtz? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for the short sellers and you curse the hedonic adjustments. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: That the short sellers’s death, while tragic, probably saved money. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves the market and economy. You don’t want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me guarding your wants. You me there. We use words like goldilocks, leveraged buyouts, debt offerings…we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use ’em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very market I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I’d prefer you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a phone and put in that buy order. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you’re entitled to. scorpio commented on Dec 4 Moskow on still babbling about the Goldilocks economy in the face of last week’s #s. cant fight the FRB, which wants inflation, asset or otherwise. as long as there are still a few #s out there composed by the private sector (Chicago PMI, ISM) we might get a realistic look at the economy. but the extent the FRB and the Commerce can get their hands on definitions and collection, their #s will be Goldilocks. enjoy. Michael C. commented on Dec 4 got to give cramer credit. he said back up the truck during the friday selloff. he was right this time. Funny, I don’t give a quarter credit when I call heads and I’m right. Barry Ritholtz commented on Dec 4 I am a stones’ throw from the stop losses from Friday Bob A commented on Dec 4 If ‘vhehn’ was a stone’s throw away from me, and I had a stone, I’d throw it at him. Not like he’d notice with all the rocks in his head.
