I actually agree about neutral, but I think on the low side of neutral(!), which will be taken as somewhere between a meh and a miss. Who knows.
Shiite, I see that the waning dollar has sent up those gold funds high enough that I feel like selling them, on the theory that i can buy them back for less when the election dust settles and the dollar rebounds, sending the price of gold lower. They have crept up throughout the day today. Tough choice for me.
Sold. Hope to buy them back for less before year end, in probably greater quantity. Did not see that coming, that was lucky, too good to pass up. I get the distinct feeling that i should have held them, and that I just burned myself.
Bought SPXL on a last bet, hope to sell tomorrow.
With that I am shutting things down for the year unless there is a major event, or unless the critical index levels are breached again this year. I could lose on this last one, but what the heck, my last is always a hail mary. It is just a simple bet that people want their bonuses. Did not bet that much, not at all confident.
