More blood in the streets today, most likely. The S&P formed a swing low Monday. I hope we don't take out the prior lows. I am tempted to go to cash.

Premarkets are UP? Hunh? Maybe I'm reading the tea leaves wrong.

I didn't go back in.  The "rally" was too tepid to be very convincing.  We're going to get another downleg.  Maybe today, we'll see.  Meanwhile, my small pile of FRNs are safe in the Credit Union digibit computers.

I'm a libertarian myself, at least by disposition.

I'm a neo tribalist , at least by disposition.  Until we have a significant dieoff though, neo-tribalism is impractical.  Meanwhile, I'm a COMMUNIST.  BOLSHEVIK.  TROTSKYITE.  Better Red than Dead.

Bolshevik or Menshevik? I'm probably a Menshevik.

I think equities are ignoring the potential bond market problems associated with a high CPI number. Markets are up. I'm keeping my eye on the bond market. The 10 yr is hovering at 2.9. If we get a close above 3.03, I look for more red ink in stocks.

I am possibly going to cash. I am green on one of my two positions and poised to sell that one if the markets suddenly turn.

Update:

I got busy and didn't post this (above), but I sold my green position, and I'm still holding one stock that's underwater.  Technically it looks great now, but if the bond really does spike, I'm out.

I don't think a foot massage will help much.

I read the article from IS.  Pretty long.  I am surprised you would identify yourself as a Menshevik.  Based on the definitions IS pitches out, I am definitely a Bolshevik.
