Tuesday Night Randomosity

  • Just what the heck happened with the Emerging Markets - $EEM today?  I guess we could blame the rising dollar.  There are fears (again) that the Fed (gee, amazing) may respond to the better-than-expected economic data by “tapering” the QE.  Yes, we’ve been hearing and worrying about off and on for… years?
  • Anyway, $EEM sold off today and looks like the Asian markets are getting hit on Their Wednesday as I type.
  • So, Aaron Rodgers has a fractured collar bone.  OUCH.  That can’t be comfortable.  The good news is that it’s not on his throwing arm side.   But still.  Ouch.
  • I’m still in cash.  Cash!!!  The stock market really didn’t do much today.
  • Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford, admitted that he smoked crack.  But, well, it was during one of his drunken stupors.   Yeah, I guess that makes it okay.  Who’s more trustworthy than a mayor who goes into drunken stupors and smokes crack?  It’s not like he lied about you being able to keep your health plan, if you like your health plan.
  • So, uh, $TSLA – Tesla dropped 12% after hours on their numbers.  They say because deliveries fell short.
  • Dwight Howard was jeered at a Los Angeles CLIPPERS game.  I am not sure what that means.  Exactly.
