    Bad trade executions

    Hey -- look at the 30-year treasury bond index (^TYX), and go to the one-day price chart. It's the wierdest looking thing I've ever seen. Maybe I'll call it the "Benron Comb".

    • Yep--not many teeth in it--he doesn't need them :). Interesting with West Texas Crude and the Benron Buck both up big today. Maybe Uncle Bucky needs a rest--we shall see. He almost got to the top of the narrowed bollinger bands.

      • I watch the dollar index pretty closely. My intention has been to shift some of my US bond money to an international bond fund when the dollar seems too high. That way I get a substantial boost as the dollar drops in value (at least in theory). I've played it that way successfully a couple of times. When the dollar index recently got to about 84, I was tempted to do it again, but didn't have the nerve to pull the trigger. Too much back-and-forth European news. Good news one day, disaster the next. But in hindsight, I should have gritted my teeth and bought some of the foreign stuff.
