I have to apologize to all my readers for my disappearance from last Tuesday, 7 August until today. I was hospitalized for a Sickle Cell crisis from Tuesday through Friday, 10 August. It was the first time I've had a crisis that bad in over 3 years. Of course, I missed all the fun in the markets, which really sucks ass. But I have to apologize to you all since I know that I'm supposed to be on the front lines, commenting on what I see. For that, I do hope you'll forgive me.
