Some Days Just Throw Me Off

My guess is that the bulls are doing a three-day ropes course thingamajig somewhere in the outback, far, far away from any news. Economy in U.S. Grew 4% in Second Quarter vs. 3% Estimate ADP Employment Report Shows Job Growth at 218,000 in July Euro...

Oil, VIX, and Summer Time Moves

The VIX and oil prices seem unshakeable. In the last month of geopolitical “crises” around the world both have moved little, and whatever movement they did have to the upside, has been retraced. Both the market and the oil market have absorbed the bad...
