"Honey, why aren't you buying any more?" Because God told me the bear was over.

A dead cat bounce. My guess, a rally before on more downward stint. Then a rally in the fall. Ok, let me put up my Ouija board.

Thanks godoftrading. I feel sooo much better now to know that the BEAR is gone back into the woods! We can all move out to the sleeping porch tonight and rest peacefully with the memory of the shortest BEAR Market ever in the rearview mirror.

It's Wednesday, the bear had the day off.

Rumor has it he was out golfing at the Mortgage Bankers Association summer outing.

Is there a thread rating that carries less than one star?

Or that revokes previously-issued stars?

Eh, never mind, he's probably just done another hit & run post.

Nords - maybe this is the part where 'you just happen to mention your BRK and maybe you just happened to suggest to Warren to add BUD and beef up WFC in time for recent events' . Ok maybe stretching it a tad.

Or maybe a cute animal with a pancake stack to perk things up - 92 degree's and I don't wanna mow the yard yet.



heh heh heh - the bottom, bear rally, Saint's to the playoff's this year, - I still don't wanna do yardwork right now. .

Another grenade-thrower who just posts and runs away-- is there something about the word "discussion" in the term "discussion board" that's causing confusion?

Maybe he's Jonathan Lebed...
