    While China can still stimulate its economy, the Fed can only fondle ours. 

    Don’t forget, bull markets climb a wall of worry.  If true, some AFB’ers are going to push us higher.

    Didn’t know the collective AFB had _that_ much buying power.  LOL


    If we all put our money together, we could buy…...

    Mav, just you alone!  :-D

    You must have me confused with people who drive nice cars because they can afford them.

    And as for the lamp post:

    (...)
    So you are all in?

    Just when does your crystal ball show AAPL reaching $1,000?  I would say there is plenty of time for many whipsaws and changes in market sentiment to occur between now and then.

    I’m never all in. :D But rarely do I hold unhedged calls, and I’m holding them right now.

    I need to see what happens between now and SEP’12 to get a sense of $1000 potential.  I suspect we may need to see the jaws of death (again) at least once before then.

    You just spurred me to put market sell orders on my entire portfolio.  (Which Jim Cramer, who I do follow in part for entertainment/circus value, says I should never do.)

    The unhedged calls part, that just brings to mind the Twilight Zone or the parallel universe I’ve woken up in where the more disciplined traders are also more bullish than I am.

    Which do you think it is?! LOL  And don’t remind me about Screamfest August 2011!  Which…was actually kind of “fun” for me, in an insanely perilous kind of way.

    Well, looking at the futures, I’d say I obviously have a screw loose… wink

    For your consideration, meet a young trader known simply as “Mav”, who has until now lived an existence of risk avoidance that has been the envy of his peers. But on this day Mav awakes to find that he is unhedged….perhaps unhinged….and though he thinks he resides in the AFB, in fact he now lives in ....The Twilight Zone….....

    Apple just can’t catch a break here…red futures near earnings.  Ever the optimist, I’m hopeful it’s a “I hate Mondays” sort of thing.

    Note to Europe:  Get it together.  We’ve been waiting long enough.

    Answer me these questions pronto:

    1.  Straight-edge or Phillips?

    2.  Your address so I can Federal Express the item from #1 to you.

    In looking back to past periods of price action around earnings, it appears we may have an intra-day high this week that will be favorable to Friday’s close to allow us to hopefully shed those positions targeted for closing out.  We will know soon enough.  I, for one, will most likely be replacing unhedged calls with higher strike BCS’s.

    Sure wish, similar to the the crop report in the movie Trading Places, I had Apple’s earnings report before Tuesday.  However, I can do without since I can also do without being placed in a cage next to a real-live amorous Gorilla.

    Good luck to all!

    Just when does your crystal ball show AAPL reaching $1,000?

    Like all TA, right after it happens. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    to be balanced, FA crystal balls aren’t working right now, either.  that could change on tuesday night, however.
