The men folk took off for West Virginia for a dirt bike ride with some others. This trip is one that is much anticipated, and they try to go 2 times a year. Last weekend they were rained out. It's just me and my girls. My daughter just stepped out the door for her plans. But earlier, we took a nice walk with the canines. Lovely warm, Indian Summer evening.
Below is a picture of Malcolm Smith (left) and Ken. Malcolm Smith is in his 70's and Ken is likely in his 60's. The picture was from a couple of weekends ago from Hatfield and McCoy, where these men are still enjoying this sport called dirt bike riding.
Malcolm is considered the father of dirt bike riding. It's a terrific picture of two men passionate about this sport and still engaged in it.
I'm going to make some good use of my time away from having to take care of the needs of others and get some stuff down around the house.
I'm going to spend a quite evening looking at charts. We are bumping into resistance...here's a previously shared chart.
There's a picture in my head that we could carve out a whomping big "W" bottom which would fit well with a gnashing and thrashing economic scenario. I wonder if we will have 1 more push up...a last gasp so to speak, or if we've already had it. Perhaps MarkM's model will tell us?
I'm pretty much of the mind that either direction would not surprise me.
Glenn asks about a quick way to see changes in sectors from week to week. One way to do this would be to use this view of the PerfCharts on Stockcharts (click on graphic to be transported).
Also, Finviz offers a nice graphic (click to be transported)
And finally, one can go to the Market Data page in the WSJ
