    "buckle up"

    Damning evidence. I wrote way back when that the volume during capitulation was 5-10x average; maybe the average wasn't large enough for him? Anyhow it's all BS on his part to cover up the real reason - it was an emotional move on his part since he didn't like what the Fed was proposing/doing with QE and they weren't doing it his way (remember PARs? oh and go back and read these pounding-the-table WMCs). Funny now he talks about the effectiveness QE can have on market action like it was textbook fundamental knowledge.

    Hope there's no bullets in that gun by the nightstand (Mulholland Drive movie).

    Bowflex symbol

    Hahaha, of course! Great slogan at the end, hope they trademark it.

    Only $4000. 30 minute talk time and only 10 hours to charge. I'm sure minutes were a real bargain too.

    Had a heck of a time posting that. Seemed like 'they' didn't like combining bat and wing into one word. Or maybe it was when I first tried to add a Bowflex link and it domino-ed after that, but I've successfully posted inactive links (leave off the h..p stuff) before but with a stern warning.

    I just received their junk mail catalog and it has a sideways W bat wing (remember the issue with the Williams pinball upside-down W bat wing?). I received Bowflex junk mail before so either I just noticed this or it's new.

    IMO he didn't because he let his emotions take control. I could see it real time with his pounding the table about what the Fed was doing was wrong (should do it 'my' way) and how it would sink us into depression. Funny now that he acknowledges QE as being something potentially positive for market action from a risk perspective, as if he knew it all along...
    I think the fund would have been OK without this fundamental mistake, as it had before the hiccup.

    Nice 3 dB 'buy the dip' recovery, did you cause that? lol
    Suckiness aside, Swindle Lake/going private may have had something to do with it.

    Thanks for the reply and info, useful to me down the road with my old equipment.
    Yeah lucky you with the housing growing faster than the infrastructure. Well I've had my share of pain with it over here in north FW, but at least one major artery is complete and the other is moving right along. Nice but tricky toll/freeway hybrids, I bet lots of folks take the wrong exits on these Hot Wheels tracks.
    Hope all is well.

    P.S. I hope he didn't go short here...

    His minions probably don't monitor this useless nonsensical MB anymore since you overwhelmed it into your personal blog.
