1. There’s a complete obsession with jobs data.
So assuming govt reopens tomorrow, when do we get Sept. jobs report? Monday?
@ModeledBehavior Lets get that September jobs report out and then weâ€™ll all reassess where we stand.
If DL raised to Nov 22 without end to govt #shutdown, you can say goodbye to Fed #taper this year. No jobs report for Oct or Nov
2. And the debt ceiling.

3. Using ticker $ymbols to call out longs and shorts.
Anyone shorting $AAPL around $500 for a fall below is crazy. Going higher into earnings. Pause here good for a nice short squeeze to come
Added $500 calls $aapl weekly; short $goog $900/$910 weekly call spread, $SCTY all time highs, sold $14.50/$15 $BAC Call spread.
@BretKenwell I usually take positions off for .05.. but if I have an $AAPL or $GOOG short option .90 or lessâ€¦ I take it off.

8. Guys, INFLATION!!!!
10 minutes until the latest Chinese inflation data. http://t.co/XeP0OJ5UB3
http://t.co/Ny2yLb1RX7 The average household needs extra cash to stand still with the rise in infaltion
Gerald F Seib
Infaltion still relatively tame: Producer price index up 0.5% in May, core up just 0.1%. http://t.co/ooNp1Ik9kd via @WSJ
Watch This Closely! This Could Cause Infaltion! Equals Higher Rates!! More Money Printing? Here’s How It Could Happen http://t.co/1sdsSROryr

10. Opinions about Summers’ downfall…
White House caved on Syria and Larry Summers, now we need a big cave on the #Obamacare individual mandate by October 15th, debt ceiling deal
11. …and Yellen’s rise.
Email from a strong Yellen supporter who despaired all summer of a possible Summers pick: “There is a God.”

Can somebody make a chart of the S&P and match it to the S&P from a different year and then draw a conclusion? Thx.

14. Retweeting, favoriting, quoting, and generally musing about Carl Icahn.
It’s nice that in his old age, Carl Icahn has devoted himself to charity work on behalf of financial journalists
So apparently Carl Icahn’s daughter tweets for him. I’m so disillusioned
“I appreciate that you called me a great investor, too bad I can’t say the same about you” - Carl Icahn
