AUGUST PUNCHED


Markets closed tomorrow but oil markets opening this afternoon so someone can trade the oil markets and help the CME make some money as others may suffer.


And how about that GOP keeping Dubya and Cheney away from the Minn. Why wouldn't anyone want Cheney to go?

I've tried numerous times to sign up but when I try to post the second time the site won't let me back on.

I enjoy reading your daily updates. They sometimes reafirmes trends that I'm seeing but they always make me think. You did make me a few bucks with an APPL trade a while back.

A fund manager on CNBC was touting that his fund was up 6%. I'm disappointed with my +4.8% but feel better seeing how others are doing.


Go Gators!
