Like I said many days ago, the Fed hike is priced
in (a 25 bp hike anyway), and the markets would
rally once uncertainty is removed. Today many jumped
the fun to try to get in ahead of the FOMC decision,
and we all saw the result.
Barring a 50 bp
hike, which analysts and former Fed govenors (who ought
to know) polled have assigned less than a 10%
probability, the market bottom as of two weeks ago is in place
and new lows will not be seen in major
I do believe we are at a short term top however -
hourly RSI and momentum indicators are into extreme
overbought territory, and the Dow, S&P, and Naz are at
strong resistance levels. We should see a selloff this
week, possibly starting as early as tomorrow, but it
will be mild and come nowhere close to previous market
lows. Any dip you see here is the last chance to buy
this market for many weeks to come, IMO.
think PIXR is a strong buy anywhere near here. If it
dips to 36-ish or even to 34-ish on a market dip this
week, it is a better buy, but I would not hold out hope
for prices below 36 at this point.

about how Pokemon is going to affect Toy Story
II. Wouldn't want my current positions switched
around at this time (I am more in Pixar than KIDE), but
still a little worried. Ran across yet another Pokemon
media article with the following quote:
Pokemon deck is hot. Kids are going nuts over it,� said
Ronald Rule, president of U.S. Playing
Also, Burger King has another tie-in for the Pokemon
movie like they did with RugRats (which was quite
sucessful). I am hoping Jobs will soon announce some other
plans to increase revenues, as I think we are going to
be let down by TSII. I know it will now be
impossible to meet my original expectations.

site" and found there's a trailer there...here's the

TS2 will start to show in movie theaters? We are just
3 short months away from the movie, so I wonder
when they will start their advertising and
when greenspan raises interest rates not by 1\4
but by 1\2 point this tuesday. We will see pixar at
$29 possibly by the end of the week. Don't get me
wrong pixar is a great stock and anybody who buys it at
around $29 will make lots of money. I've made big
bucks$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$on pixar but now only shorts like me will make
money. I will go long when it hits $29 at the end of the
week. Aren't greenspan and mitchell the two ugliest
people you've ever met? Thank god they are too old to
