Heads Up: I am traveling all of next week

Those of you who have been blog readers for a long time know the uncanny correlation between my travel and market dislocations.

The ugliest example was the flight back from Dallas to NY during the flash crash. Landed — hmmmm, down 300 — but had no idea what happened. January 2009, February 2011, August 2011 — all pretty dicey. And I was on the road for many months in 2008, and markets were lower every time I returned.

Readers have repeatedly asked for a heads up — so this is it.

Now, of course I don’t believe in this, and the correlations are surely coincidental. But before you dismiss this, recall the words of Niels Bohr, Nobel Prize winning Physicist (1922). He had a horseshoe above his door, and when a visitor asked him about it, he mentioned it was a good luck charm.

“Do you really believe in that?” the visitor asked?

Bohr replied “Of course not … but I am told it works even if you don’t believe in it.”

I’ll still be posting, and tweeting some photos — but i wont be back until the 27th!

Enjoy your 3 day weekend!
