Yelp gained over 8 dollars today on news that it would be sold. According to CNBC the company will be sold to either Google, Facebook, or Apple. This is funny because I can see Google snooping around the places you eat. Sending you coupons, to the restaurant where you just ate, on every site you log in on. But none the less, Yelp gained over 21 percent with a high of 48.73. Whoever knew about the news and got in at 12:40pm EST "GOOD JOB". Even if you had a lonely 100 shares you made good money if you caught the move. Acquisitions can be your friend or your enemy I have noticed in the past. Regardless the market was nice today. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 82.08 points today. It was very choppy at the start of the day but around 10:30Am EST it started its move upwards from support at 17812. It went up then started to creep down around 1pm. I would say something about the S&P but as a trader you already know S&P and Dow Jones Travel together. They are roll dawgs. Regardless the trading session was good, entertaining at times, and educating. I have been learning to keep my stops and most of all be patient.55
What is going on with this Pollen folks? !GET A GAS MASK!. Mother nature is trying to kill us. I was driving home, after I dropped my daughter off. I seen the information projector on the interstate. You know the thing that tells you how many wrecks have happened, don't text etc. It said "Air Quality Alert, Don't Travel If You DON'T Have To." You know me I shrugged it off and made it home in time to trade. My lungs are good, I don't have any ailments that I don't know about. So I get done for the day around lunch and as I do everyday I roam through the refrigerator acting like I'm going to make something, but I never do. So I set out to go get my daughter from Head-start. I get in my Truck and roll the window down, because it was a nice day. I pull off and start driving. I start looking around and there is Dust everywhere. I'm like what the H is going on. I quickly roll my window up and as I'm rolling my window up the pollen attacks my truck. I got in my truck and started sneezing immediately. The sad thing about Nashville is that it sits down in a bowl since its only about 500 feet above sea level. So this pollen will terrorize us for a few days. Also, the news got me scared because Anti-histamine medicines are supposed to be linked to Alzheimer. Well I guess I will worry about that when I get older. You guys have a blessed day. Somebody let me borrow their nose.
