Botid,

Good morning- watching it from Zero degree weather. Another 8 inches of snow tomorrow. May delay my move.

Dear John,
I hope, it all clears a bit for your time.
Did you order the truck and everything already?

Good Trading

John said...

Boris

I am frugal unlike the younger population. I ordered a POD which will arrive 30 dec and be pulled out 2 Jan. I will load the POD myself , with the help of a couple of friends. It is quite a system they have but my street is almost blocked with snow. The city is not plowing side streets , I will hire a snow plow myself to get the street clear so the POD truck can get in. I will save at least 5,000 dollars doing it this way.

Dear John,
I must have done that countless times, as a young family in USA we moved a lot, lived in 8 states at different times ant traveled all of them , almost(:-

Thanx, everything will work out.

John, no snow here where I live in ohio but unbelievable cold. They are saying 50 degrees here on friday. Maybe you will get some of the heat wave. waldo.

John said...

Waldo,

When it gets above zero here today, I will be happy. In one of those patters, when it warms up- it snows and then gets brutally cold. I am surprised you did not catch the snow.

אנטי-סופיטליסט said...

went north of me but the snow belt up east of cleveland got some and northern pa. got it also. The market just acts like it doesn't want to move, maybe it's froze up also. waldo

jimww said...

Dear John take your time , The sun will be here waiting to warm your bones. There is quite a bit of snow up north in flagstaff in case you get nostalgic for it. Jim

boris said...

Dear Waldo,
The market is in a tight coil, just like the analog we discussed,
If it is broken on the upside , it will have the same consequence. Somwhat Lasting move up!

Good day gentlemen:

Before I left for Santa Monica in 1977 I lived in N.Y. That January the temps never went above 32. I remember the news sign in Times Square reading -8 with the wind chill factor.Then in February we were sitting on the beach in Santa Monica.(Me and my Georgian friend)The funny thing was, we were the only people on the beach.My friend asked me how come no one else was on the beach. The only thing I could figure was "relativity":-)
We went from an Artic chill to basking under palm trees. The Los Angleans saw it as winter and you wait for the summer to go to the beaches.So John, old mother nature is just saying good bye to you.She wants you to remember your last month in Chicago,but she's going to embrace you in a warm hug at your new destination.
.............
Meanwhile my new computer with Vista has a "compatibility" problem and I can't use my trading platform,so back to my laptop.I'm not so compatible myself today,so I may return it for a XP version.
Good trading,
And in case I lose connection again...
Happy Hanukkah,
Merry Christmas

John said...

Klaatu,

You are correct- Chicago's way of saying good bye.


old john

boris said...

Dear Klaatu,
Happy Hanukka and Merry Christmas
to you and to all our readers, as well.

Nice story, and Feel for Santa Monica. I love that place. Of course, I am crazy for San Diego, but there is the best Fish restaurant on that beach street, dam it forget the name(:-

Every time I go do Santa Monica, it is religion for me ( family) to have a LOBSTER there.

INCREDIBLE!

Good Trading My Dear Friend Klaatu

Boris, IF is a mighty big word when it comes to this weak market. although I have been buying a little today expecting a santa claus rally. waldo.

אנטי-סופיטליסט said...

All I am seeing on my 5 minute futures chart is bear flags, the market will have to get above 880 before it has a chance of moving higher and that would be a nice little rally from these levels. waldo.

boris said...

Dear Waldo,
Unfortunatly market works with if and but.

If the market did not have IF we would all be BILLIONERS(:-

IF is not just a part of a human logic, it is the essense of the markets. In fact we should pray that it as simple as few ifs and buts. Because, it really is more complicated than that.

It only comes down to if after we found a good analog, or else it is hell of nested if , if and else and if end else...(:-

Dear Boris,
I think I know the place, but can't remember the name either. It was on Ocean Ave.I think it had a Blue awning.I remember a great fish chowder special on Friday's. Another fish place was the Enterprise Fish Co., also off the beach in the Ocean park area. I lived a block away. Went in one day and a very intimidating muscle man sat down nearby. It was Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Good trading,
Klaatu

boris said...

Dear Klaatu,
Exactly Ocean Avenue.
Exactly Blue awning.
Yes!

It is a high(er) class restaurant, perhaps highest class in that block and/or street ( I can not swear on that)

אנטי-סופיטליסט said...

Dear Boris,
Yes. It and a place called Michael's were the best.It always attracted me with its beautiful exterior and nicely place tables inside. By the time I left there were a lot of new places with "Chez" in the name
:-) along Ocean Ave.

boris said...

Dear Klaatu,
You make me home sick For CALI.
Thank God, I will be there within next few weeks

אנטי-סופיטליסט said...

Boris-
One last thing.While I drove over to post office I remembered a movie with the "blue" restaurant in it.
In the comedy classic,"VACATION", Chevy Chase,near the end of the movie, drives his car to pick up a gun.He makes a u-turn and parks right in front of the restaurant. I think a few people here know the movie. I think the cross street for the restaurant was Santa Monica Blvd.

boris said...

Dear Klaatu,
Thank you,
I think, I saw the movie, but do not remember most of it(:-

Good Trading Dear Klaatu

Goodafternoon/Evening Boris....

Pulled some dough from an atm and got a stack of brand spankin' new notes, with consecutive serial numbers to boot. Am I a victim of 'quantitative easing/ZIRP'?

The ma lines are all converging..
Are we gonna see fireworks again?

Seems that the buck is on shakey ground once more with daily oscillators turning against the benbucks.

Time to abandon ship, you know, the USS Obama, once again?

Dear Jim,
TelAviv was the same last couple days.

I guess the SUN is angry at somebody on the earth(:-

boris said...

We are getting what we wished for , Decline, Perhaps a bit larger one than hoped, but not out of the probability at all.
So, we are now set to get our signal, and then it is the question of trading around it. Trying to find best entry place that one can defened in case we are wrong

Good Trading

jimww said...

Dear boris The Sun is hideing it's face from mankind......only for a little while ...thank the great spirit.

אנטי-סופיטליסט said...

I agree Boris, didn't think we would get this magnitude of a selloff this week. all well. waldo.

boris said...

Well Dear Readers,
This did not end too bad after all, which is in the spirit of the ANALOG.

Good Trading

Vishal said...

Dear Boris, are we looking for more downside ? Or should we get ready to buy ?

cheers

אנטי-סופיטליסט said...

Dear Boris,
Great guidance today.
Thanks,

I bought small amounts at the last two APs. I am down a slight bit but they were small lots.
