Its time for that classic blog, Sad Guys on Trading Floors

I love it when Charles does his De Niro impression.

BLURMONSTER IS EATING THE MARKET

BLURMONSTER IS EATING THE MARKET

I don’t know what the hell this big blue shape is, but I can tell you one thing. I ain’t very happy about it.

Jeff Goldblum stars as a brilliant scientist who uncovers an alien code hidden in market trading data. Will he and Will Smith prevent the alien destruction of the global economy? Independence Day Trader, coming this fall.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Reading faces rather than tape for trading profits? Probably much more insightful emotionally – and markets are, as we are discovering, very much emotional.

  2. This must be where all the papers get their ‘guy with head in hands’ photo from every time the market takes a dive

    That isn’t Charles doing his De Niro impression. It’s John Santiago.

    But why should traders be sad? As Eddie Murphy said in “Trading Places,” “You guys are bookies!” They make money on commissions, not the direction.

    Speaking of Jeff Goldblum . . . I remain fairly certain that he and Lakshman Achuthan are brothers, or, at the very least, first cousins.

    On another note . . .remember folks, this is a global slowdown we are entering, not a global stoppage. The good old U.S. of A. traditionally is blessed with the most dynamic and responsive marketplace on the face of the Earth, and she will get herself back on her feet posthaste (and even more posthaste if we reverse the trend of LBJ-inspired (and big government Republicans) bloat, or, to be more precise, gaming and using the system).
