Thank you good buddy. Let me know when consider selling. Oh, I filled up this morning @ $3.55 a gallon. Now, time to mow the front lawn.

Guys like you should farm the lawn mowing duties out to kids in the neighborhood, making more time to chase birdies and eagles.........

Biting the market timing bullet and filling the tank today--I'll look for the "compliments of Ziggy" line printed on the receipt....

Your probably right. It's almost too hot for anything. Hugging the a/c right now. Glad that's over.

Golf at 6:00am, beer at 11:00am, then a nap............

I played in a golf outing recently with a good ole boy from Thibodeaux, Louisiana. He thought our 85 degree day with a 70 dewpoint was "mahvelous"................

I bet he did. When the time comes and I'm no longer looking after good ole Mom, I plan to travel up north during August. Find a place to perch and just enjoy some decent weather. BTW, no desire for 6:00am golf. I'm in for the 11:00am beer and nap though.

On an unrelated matter, I traveled to Orange Beach, AL over the weekend to hear Willie Nelson and BB King in concert. BB is 82 years old but can still play, sing and tell stories. I believe Willie is in his early 70's but he sounded just the way he did 30 years ago. Nice outdoor concert with a decent Gulf breeze keeping us cool. And I didn't have Monday morning work hanging over my head. ER life is good.

Wisconsin is lovely this time of year, usually low to mid 70's if you are on the Lake Michigan, hotter inland (up to 10 degrees hotter)..........

I'm ever so grateful. Especially in light of the fact that last week I changed my mind about buying the USO and bought a small bit of some DUG instead. So, my gas is cheaper and I reaped a little profit shorting oil at the same time. Muchisimas Gracias

Just as no one ever got fired for choosing IBM, no one ever went broke by looking at my market moves and doing the opposite.

Boom, goodbye inventories, hello prices! I think this goes along with my post (#120) about the inventories/pricing chicken/egg situation. Ziggy, you overestimate your powers!

USO at $102.37, September oil up $4.58 at $126.77

A fairly rare event these days to have the market bounce up when oil prices also rise by a steep amount (+$5/barrel).

$4.19 in paradise. Gas prices in Hawaii always rise a bit slower than the rest of the country, and decline at glacier like speed. Although, I do get a kick out of our prices often being cheaper than California.

Yeah, but the exhaust coming out of our cars smells as sweet as a flower, while Hawaiian exhaust smells like old surfboards and spam.

Oil market caught in bullish-geopolitical, bearish-economy tug-of-war - BloggingStocks

"From a trading perspective, this market is as risky as it has been in about two years, which means you can lose money in a hurry, and that's for professionals," Dietz said.

Obviously we should steer clear of these professional money losers.

"We have a saying in the oil market when the data says the market is divided that goes 'don't just do something, stand there.' That's how things are right now."

I didnt know Bogle was an oil trader.

Thought I would bump again with a comment about USO at $95.48 and oil at $119. That's about a 17% drop since ziggy's purchase, sorry to bring it up.

Oils going to $70-80 a barrel. Dollars going to pick up a little steam too.

Just remember you read it here first...

Wow - oil at $118 and change!

Looks like ziggy did indeed nail the top (at least for the time being).
