Hey - you can watch TV and repeat the crap they say there - congratulations!

OTOH: does that qualify you to get a C- in an Economics 101 class? No.

Jim: I just looked at T and IBM- they can double from here to match the price-to-sales of GE. If yardeni's year 2000 recession predictions are correct then everything except IBM will crumble away, leaving IBM like the core of an extinct volcano - it will suck money from all the other big-caps to fix the problems it created at someone else's expense. -ggg-

Some one e-mailed me this,
>>Guide to Windows '98
>>
>>Congratulations on your purchase of Windows 98 (C), the latest
>>version of the world's #1 computer operating system from Microsoft. Before using your new software, please take the time to read these instructions carefully. Failure to do so may further limit the terms of the limited warranty.

>>Windows 98 (C) represents a significant technological improvement over Microsoft's previous operating system, Windows 95 (C). You'll notic immediately that "98" is a larger number than "95," a better than 3 ercent increase. But that's not all. Windows 98 (C) contains many features not found in Windows 95 (C), or in any competing computer operating system, as if there are any. Among the improvements:
Faster storing and retrieving of files (not in all models), enhanced "Caps Lock" and back-space functionality, smoother handling, less knocking and pinging, an easy-to-follow 720-page User's Guide, and rugged weather-resistant shrink wrap around the box. Most important, Windows 98 (C) offers superior compatibility with all existing Microsoft products. We're betting that you'll never use another company's software again.

>>Windows 98 (C) comes factory-loaded with the latest version of Microsoft Explorer, the world's most popular Internet browser. And despite what you may have heard from the U.S. Department of Justice, Windows 98 (C) offers you the freedom to select the Internet browser of your choice, whether it's the one produced by the world's largest and most trusted software producer, or by a smaller company that will either go out of business or become part of the Microsoft family.
>>
>>Configuring Windows 98 (C) to use a browser other than Microsoft
>>Explorer is easy. Simply open the "Options" folder, click on the "time bomb" icon, and select "Load Inferior Browser." A dialog box will ask "Are you sure?" Click "yes." This question may be asked several more times in different ways; just keep clicking "yes." Eventually, the time-bomb icon will enlarge to fill the entire screen, signifying that he browser is being loaded. You'll know the browser is fully loaded when the fuse on the time bomb "runs out" and the screen "explodes."
If at any time after installation you become disappointed with the slow speed and frequent data loss associated with other browsers, simply tap the space bar on your keyboard. Microsoft Explorer will automatically be re-installed--permanently.
>>
>>Windows 98 (C) also corrects, for the first time anywhere, the "Year
>>2000" computer problem. As you may know, most computers store the
>>current year as a two-digit number and, as a result, many will mistake the year 2000 for 1900. Windows 98 (C) solves the problem by storing the year as a four-digit number and, in theory, you won't have to upgrade this part of the operating system until the year 10000. However, the extra memory required to record the year in four digits has prompted a few minor changes in the software's internal calendar. Henceforth, Saturday and Sunday will be stored as single day, known as "Satsun," and the month of June will be replaced by two 15-day months called "Bill" and "Melissa."
>>
>>Please also take the time to complete the online registration form. It only takes a few minutes and will help us identify the key software
>>problems our customers want addressed. Be assured that none of the
>>information you provide, whether it's your Social Security number, bank records, fingerprints, retina scan or sexual history, will be shared with any outside company not already designated as a Microsoft DataShare partner.
>>
>>We've done our best to make using Windows 98 (C) as trouble-free as
>>possible. We want to hear from you if you're having any problems at all with your software. Simply call our toll-free Helpline and follow the recorded instructions carefully. (The Helpline is open every day but Satsun, and is closed for the entire month of Bill.
>>
>>If we don't hear from you, we'll assume your software is working
>>perfectly, and an electronic message to that effect will be forwarded to the Justice Department. We'll also send, in your name, a letter to the editor of your hometown newspaper, reminding him or her that American consumers want software designed by companies that are free to innovate, not by government bureaucrats.

>>Again, thanks for choosing Windows 98 (C).
>>
>>Satirist Tom McNichol is waiting for his computer to boot up.

Tom ; I don't know, I got all tangled up in the TA and wound
up with a double alligator, and upside down gin bottle formation,
all converging on a quadrangle that looks like Bill Gates..

Seriously;
My signals are mixed but saying an S&P 1120low to 1190 trading range for a bit.

I look at that too, but I read it different than most people,
what came out of equity is history, What went in the Money
Markets is what I look at..the cash is there pal, and it's
above it's 4 week moving average right nicely.
3% gain or better this week from Fridays Low..
Jim
PS I first made that call 10am Friday, I'll stick with it
till I see something else.

Jags; amgdata.com then click on news, it's just a once
a week update. Read it the way you like, but I've found that the
Money Market flows are the most important. When it gets high
that's money looking for a place to go.
Naturally the equities would have out flows, as the market
went down, now if they had more inflows than the MMs and the
market had gone down I would be worried.
To me it did just what it should have, being the markets dropped,
but the build up of cash in the MMs is bullish for the next
week. When you have a lot of money going into equity and out
of MMs to the point the MMs fall below their 4 week average,
then that is getting bearish.
Note the previous week the 15th..that's one of the reasons on
the 16th I was saying short the market.
This is no holy grail but along with some other indicators
I see us going up this week, however we could make 1120 S&P
before the snap, but I dove in on the long side Friday.

Hi LG, Eliades hasn't been on KY in 6 months - another battered and discredited bear? -ggg-

It's very possible we are in crash mode.

Message 5311645

We are 6 months above a long term trendline mean, the 87 and 29 markets were 3 months above the mean.
