Please accept my sincerest apologies for failing to publicly acknowledge our fallen heroes this past Memorial Day. No excuse I could offer could justify the oversight. Along with you, I salute the many men and women who have proudly and selflessly served in our military to protect, defend and secure the freedoms and liberties we enjoy each and every day. Their bravery in making the ultimate sacrifice will forever be appreciated and they will always be remembered and celebrated and never taken for granted or forgotten.
I got my LABU stock called away today. That's exactly what I wanted to happen. It was touch and go for the last half hour but that little buy program just before the close did the trick. I ended up making a bit more money by selling the calls than I would have if I had sold the stock at the close. I made a decent amount of money for no longer than I owned the stock. I am still very nervous about the market. You can't tell me those few banks that have revealed they have bond duration problems and have big losses are the only banks that have that problem. They could only be the tip of the iceberg. I don't believe what the market cheerleaders, hypsters, and pumpers in the business news media , the Fed and the treasury are saying that everything is ok and nothing to worry about.
