A little luck getting long the SDS but sometimes you need that when the house is crooked. And believe me Paulson, Bernanke, the SEC, congress, et al are as crooked as they come.
Ditto here with the luck on the Dow getting long the DXD. Please notice the lack of volume. You think some lights are going on in equity land regarding what is going on.
Now these guys do know what is going on. And they do not like what is happening. They may nix the bailout plan as they vote on it with their feet as they stampede for the exits.
What a blastoff. I patiently await a correction.
This chart of nat gas, ticker UNG, is looking better and better by the day.
Good speculating to you all and never forget that "an investor is a speculator who made a mistake and will not admit it".
