One trading day remains in the year that saw “The rally off the March bottom” and to be honest, I find myself so relieved I could run screaming naked out the door and through the snow; buuuuuut since I have no desire to offend my poor neighbors [or spend a night in jail] I shall refrain. I’m merely sick and tired of hearing the phrase every two minutes. Come to think of it, I’m tired of a crappy USD. I’m tired of Maria Bartiromo saying “imporent” on nationwide TV as if it didn’t contain another “t” in the word [how much is she paid anyway?]. I’m tired of bankers receiving unbelieveable bonuses which I will be paying for via higher taxes. I could go on and on because I’m female [and damn good at ranting], but then it dawned on me I should be thankful for the good things that took place in ’09.

I will resume posting after the New Year but I hope you all had a profitable year, learned a little more about the market than you knew before and I wish you health, happiness and prosperity in 2010.
