A Fly Oath

Following this post, “The Fly” will cease his foul mouthed rants, until the Dow touches 11,000 again.

In other words, I will not curse until this God forsaken market drops 600 points from here.

So, either I will be a clean mouthed poor guy, or an egregiously rich-er foul mouthed malcontent.

Developing…

UPDATE: Bill Miller from Legg Mason, Inc. [[LM]] got fired from a pension fund today. Good news, as always.

    I may never curse again, according to some people.

    I know, sarcasm. Sure, the oil bigs are going to save the dow and never collapse. The banks will recover too.

    No profit taking after an up 330 day? This market has the feel of a sentiment change to me. They’ve been selling the materials/commodities/energy names aggressively on great news and buying the beaten down “shithole” stocks on horrible news.

    We’ll miss your expletive filled posts.

    In compensation for your sudden loss of available vocabulary, I offer you the Shakespeare insults dictionary and the Shakespeare Insult generator to inspire commentary worthy of a home-school locker room.

    Oil down + dollar up + lack of new doom = market goes up

    Dollar up = market goes up = oil down more + market goes up more and all of this is “built in” waiting on more input, good or bad.

    Any financial BS, merlin appears

    Any Iran BS, merlin appears

    Slow moving economic data, merlin peeks out the window

    After merlin appears, PPT reels in the slack and we go up again. I think that’s the trend.

    Gentleman Fly, still liking TCB?

    This stock acts like my wife in a shoe store (I want these(up), no these(down), no these(up)) and in the end I get stuck with the bill.

    The PPT is just out biding their time, hoarding crude for September. Methinks they’re going to need quite a bit to power the Mystery Machine with all the travel they’ll be doing.
