Turd in Backwardation

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 1:08pm

That just sounds painful, doesn't it? Yikes! However, as the title suggests, I am personally in backwardation today as I feel the best way to summarize our current position is to give you my conclusion first and then work backwards from there.

Of course I'm not going to suggest that you attempt to catch the falling knife, however, those still trading may soon see an opportunity to buy.

And this matters how? And why, exactly, do you care? Seriously. You need to ask yourself those two questions.

Driving Mama Ferg

Monday, May 7, 2012 - 9:31am

Just a quick note this morning as I will be leaving soon. Mama and Papa Ferg were visiting over the weekend and it falls to The Turd to drive them home today. I'll be checking things and checking in via iphone as we go through the day. Let's just hope that things don't get too crazy.

Compilation of Comments

Friday, May 4, 2012 - 4:38pm

For a weekend open thread and discussion, I though I'd give you a compilation of the comments I've added throughout the day to the previous thread. I do this for three reasons:

  1. There are some pretty good insights that would be missed otherwise by those who only read the main threads and not the comments that follow.
  2. I'm too lazy to type a new thread.

As we barrel toward another fun-filled BLSBS Friday, I thought it was time to contemplate where we've been, where we are and where we're going.

Fine. You win. I've been wrong, all along.

Funeral For A Friend

Tuesday, May 1, 2012 - 10:26am

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of a legend. Today, after a long battle with splinters, my sidekick, the ruler, gave up the ghost. I've been through countless Sharpies and reams of paper but my trusty ruler has always been by my side. Ruler is survived by his longtime companions Compass and Protractor. He will be sorely missed.
