What's Coming Around the Bend?

  • The market started off strong out the gate, and since has reversed and is languishing around the flat line. When markets start off strong and fade as the day goes along, it smacks of distribution by the big fellas.  Even with bullish sentiment running extremely high, there seems to be an undercurrent of "I want to get out before it tanks."  There is some thought that folks will wait until a new tax year to book profits.  On the otherhand, the profits are there now and may shrink if one waits.  As I heard someone once say, "One way to avoid taxes, is to let your profits go to $0."
  • There is a new addition to the links on the sidebar:  Wall Street Fighter.
  • Sell signal is on at Jason's.
  • The Christian video game, "Left Behind: Eternal Forces," is creating a bit of controversy.  Players are charged with recruiting, and converting, an army that will engage in physical and spiritual warfare with the antichrist and his evil followers.  Also, After you kill somebody you need to recharge your soul points and to do that you need to bend down in prayer.  Sort of a "Grand Theft Auto: Spiritual Warfare."
  • Speaking of spiritual warfare, Fox websites received more hits than Yahoo websites. 
  • Are music sales slowing down at the iTunes store?  What does this mean for Apple and their stock?  iPods continue to dominate in the MP3 player market, although I'd think the new cellphones that combine features will eat away at that.  Plus, I think at some point the new smartphones will take over.  Can't text your buddies on an iPod.
  • Thinking about the TV show "Heroes," I was thinking about the guy who can read minds.  Have you noticed that when anyone can read people's minds and thoughts in the movies or TV, that the thoughts are always in the person's voice?  Yet, sound is created by air flowing through the vocal chords.  So what would a person's thoughts really sound like?
