After an historic week, I'm very much looking forward to relaxing with a mint julep while watching The Kentucky Derby. Instead of hourly and daily charts, I'm spending the day today with The Daily Racing Form. If I get time later, I promise to give you my Derby pick. Can't promise the same general accuracy of my PM picks but ole Turd has certainly been known to play the ponies from time to time.
For now, here's your reading list for this weekend:
First, my South American buddy, Gonzalo, has penned a great new missive:
Gonzo also links a very interesting interview of the great Bill Black:
Mark Steyn wrote this great piece a couple of weeks ago. He's just great. I wonder if he's a Turdite?
Silver was obviously the big story this week. First, here's a take from Santa:
Next, Jeff Nielson chimes in and he's pissed off:
Trader Dan has a great chart on the gold:silver ratio:
He also has a great gold chart:
Ole John Browne wrote a good piece yesterday:
We're always talking about fundos here and this article sums them up quite well:
I thought that this was kind of interesting:
And, hey, it may not matter anyway. The end is near:
I've received a lot of positive feedback regarding the WebBotForum interview I gave a few weeks ago. If you need some background noise today, you might check it out:
Finally, in the interview, I mention that I'd nearly chosen the pseudonym "Colonel Angus" instead of "Turd Ferguson". Many have inquired from where the Colonel Angus name originated. The link is below. Personally, I find this and the infamous "Cowbell" sketch to be the funniest SNL skits from the last 10 years.
For laughs, here's "Cowbell", too:
OK, that's it. If I can come up with a Derby pick I'll let you know.
Have a great Saturday! TF
