Wee in the Early Hours POst

(Yes, I should be in bed, but it's a dog thingy. While I wait for them.....)

Long time reader might remember when I shared a very personal story about my brother's suicide. Tim at Slope of Hope has had some guest posters recently. While I had no intention of being a contributor, I stumbled upon that post while rummaging around in my archives. It occurred to me that it might be a post of value. So I sent it to Tim (who I call Toshi!). It is word for word the post I wrote here (including my imprudent use of the f-word, not once but twice).

I see a couple of comments asking if I'm the Leisa who used to post on Bill Cara's blog. The answer is yes. I used to comment extensively there, on Tim's blog, Barry Ritholtz's blog and Roger Nusbaum's blog. Each of those places gave me an opportunity to write my meager thoughts. Bill Cara and Nona 2000 (who, introduced me to several blogs) were particularly encouraging of me in my efforts to start a blog. I wrote before Tim or Bill became blogging rock stars and their comments section a veritable Woodstock.

I took a look at the model. All we've done so far in this decline is relieve the EXTREMELY overbought conditions and achieved "more normal" overbought conditions. My sense is we have a 65/35 chance at a ~10% correction. Internals are not that bad except for the obvious shift on beta. Biggest concern still is the volumes on up v down days. Psychology has also changed. New longs have a lot more risk here than, say, July-Aug.

Okay the GDP figure has been released and it turns out GS did the reverse quadruple double negative psyops on us as Leisa intuited.

Now we get down to real business.

L, thanks for letting me clog up your blog with comments for awhile. As it turns out, rumors of my demise had been greatly exaggerated. Gotta run now.

Best,

MarkM

MM, it is a great joy to have you and Glenn posting in this quiet little space! The woodshed is always nearby, and I've swept the cobwebs.

MarkM, you have been a voice that has been much missed. It feels like old times having you post again.
