Long Weekend.... and Frontier Oil

I will not be posted until after the long weekend as we head into the Memorial Day holiday. I want to wish all my readers a safe and enjoyable long weekend as you enjoy yourselves, family and friends combined with good food and good weather are hard to beat !



I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for taking time to stop in and read this blog. Your emails with thoughts, questions and insights are much appreciated.



Before I go I want to leave you with a wonderful snippet form one of my favourite books, Panic on Wall Street by Robert Sobel. It comes from chapter 11 entitled, 1929: The Making of the Myth.*

* A myth, according to most sociologists, is a belief which is held by a group to be true, and is accepted on faith rather than on examination of relevant evidence.

Sort of aptly describes the current calls for the credit crisis being over, a myth, plain and simple.


By the way if you missed getting in of Frontier ticker FTO yesterday, you are getting another chance with today's low volume pull back to the breakout.

I will take advantage of this and am adding a another unit long here at $28.40. leaving me with a 3 unit long position.

Good speculating to you all and continued success in all your endeavours !
