Are we having fun yet?
We have been running in place for two days now. One or two days does not make a market; but for Traders in a hurry, the pace is obnoxious.
By the middle of the afternoon session, we had decided that this was the opposite of the frog in boiling water routine. I called it fish in frozen water.
15:07 E: opposite of frog in boiling water
15:07 E: marginal lows still though
15:08 E: can we call this fish in freezing water?

@eminiwizard I saw some turtles today in the cattle fields. I didn’t catch them but know how to find them now. Thanks for the tip! #EMWS
@lyndella thank u the box turtles (ones with shorts on) were slow turtles too lol #EMWS
@dkrebby just favorited your tweet: we liked scalping short side, but market pace awful http://bit.ly/gCrzaz #EMWS
For the record, No I did not participate in hitting my target after hours.
When I work, work; when I play, play.
You want to leave open positions on while you go to golf or whatever, be my guest.
Took a walk on the beach with my wife.
Had a great swim in the Gulf.
Ran into an old friend at the Merc whom I used to work with way back when.
Enjoyed a brew at The Pub and some fish and chips, while Lady Huskies gave Purdue a lesson.

George, twins and family had a great stay, flew out this morning. They looked like the boat people when we dropped them off at the airport.
Youth; such energy.
Happy Bday Pop.
