Turkey Day Week

Good Morning. I hope you had a chance to hear Charlie Gasparino of CNBC on the “Stocks and Jocks” show last week. If you did not, you can listen to the archived show at Charlie has a new book called Sellout and is one of our favorite feisty financial editors. Read about his interview with us here.

Well, this week has turned out to be a bit more hectic than planned. Friday (Options Expiration) was busier than usual and with a shortened holiday week, I thought I’d open up the forum to you, the readers (and hopefully, listeners) to submit your ideas for show topics, guests, or just general market and sports questions you would like me to blog about or for Dr. J and I to cover on our show. Here are two more questions: 1) Is the turkey pardoning by the President still relevant in 2009 and 2) will you be spending more, less or the same this year on holiday gifts?

Send in your feedback, ideas and comments to me at I will try and get in a blog post a little later this week, assuming there is a calming lull before the holiday storm. It will be interesting to see how retail sales fare for the upcoming “biggest shopping day of the year”.

Dr. J is with me, and we have a great and growing group of guests as the show gains momentum. I would encourage you to listen and participate, there is a lot going on affecting the market that we should all be understanding and talking about.

Where Is Our Adult Supervision?

Good morning. Last week the market continued to advance, but at a very reduced rate. The SPY finished the week at 95.08, up from 94.55 or .05%, and is now up 5.3% from the 2008 close of 90.29. Rising commodity prices, especially oil, and a series of economic numbers that are showing generally a decreasing rate of deterioration seem to be fueling the rally.
