We are FLAT for the weekend!
We hopped out of the Aug 700 puts (OEZTT) at 17 1/2.
Was hitting 17 1/4 about an HOUR ago and we sweated this one out.
Toad Update 7/23/99 #1 13:03 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped into 10 contracts of the Aug 700 puts (OEZTT) at 15 1/2.
Will let you know when we hop out.
7/23/99 9:30
It's Friday, the bagels are great - market isn't sure where it's headed yet. Stay tuned...
7/22/99 Evening
Let's see, we figured the market was going to go DOWN and then come back up after Dr. G spoke - because, the market had all the interest rate information figured in already. SO, when the market started going back up - a shy Toad decided it was time to protect the assets and hop out. Not a bad plan - most of the time.
Didn't figure it would tank on Dr. G's notes and then rebound when he was done talking. NONE OF IT MAKES ANY SENSE.

Let's go back to RULE #2 Neither a Bull nor a Bear be...   Don't try to figure out this market, just go on the signals.   OR maybe we shoulda stuck in there and held on 20 minutes longer. Guess we go back to a BUY AND HOLD MENTALITY. NOT!

After today, I'm definitely ready for Friday and BAGELS!

Toad Update 7/22/99 #3 11:14 EMAIL and ICQ
THIS
is what I expected this am. Market took a sharp drop and our puts OEZTB (that we sold) are running up big time. SO the market is doing what I wanted and I just lost $325 - just doesn't seem right.
Hope you held on a little longer than the TOAD!
Toad Update 7/22/99 #2 10:20 EMAIL and ICQ
We are out of the Aug 710 puts (OEZTB) at $16.
Will let you know when we hop again.
Toad Update 7/22/99 #1 10:09 EMAIL and ICQ
We have a sell in at 17 1/4 for the Aug710 puts (OEZTB) - want to be out before Dr. G speaks.
We will lower the sell if we can't hit 17 1/4 - will let you know when they go.
7/22/99 9:30
Good morning, GLOBEX is down and Greenspan is up - let's see what happens to our puts today...
Toad Update 7/21/99 #3 16:04 EMAIL and ICQ
We are holding over until the am.
Didn't expect or appreciate the run up in the last hour - NOTHING like yesterday.
The A/D stayed on our side and we expect to see a drop in the morning. The market wasn't following the indicators today.
See you in the am.
Toad Update 7/21/99 #2 13:40 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped into 10 contracts of the Aug 710 Puts (OEZTB) at 16 1/4.
Will let you know when we hop.
Toad Update 7/21/99 #1 12:10 EMAIL and ICQ
Pulled our order on the Aug710 Puts (OEZTB) was trying to hop in at 14 and we really missed it....
Now going at 15 1/2 X 15 3/4 and the lunch bunch is in play.
SO, still flat and a little sad.....
7/21/99 9:30
Globex is up slightly - how about an UP day? Stay tuned...
7/20/99 Evening
Geez, we wanted to hop today, but with all of the good news we felt a PUT might turn on us. Most thought (Toads included) market would RALLY late in the day - WRONG!
Someone on CNBC (Joe) thinks today was an Oliver Stone Conspiracy Theory Day!

WOW!     Finally an explanation of a VERY strange day.

Others said this was a Sell on the news day.    I like Joe's theory better!   See you in the morning.
Toad Update 7/20/99 #2 15:45 EMAIL and ICQ
Mrs. Toad says my charts look like a bad heart condition today. I think she's right and I don't see a rally coming before 4:00.
Going to call it a day,         a long day, and see you by the pond tomorrow.
Toad Update 7/20/99 #1 12:34 EMAIL and ICQ
Have had our finger on the buy button several times this morning, following Aug 720 puts (OEZTD). Just not comfortable with the "taking profits" mentality.
Still watching.
7/20/99 9:30
Good morning, expecting things to move downward at open. We'll watch to see what happens after that. Sitting by the pond...
7/19/99 Evening
FLAT and glad of it - slow, summer market. See you in the am.
Toad Update 7/19/99 #2 15:54 EMAIL and ICQ
Drifting, floating, low volume, soft ... All words describing the market today. Gives you a good idea why we're still flat.
Hope we don't have a "Humphries-Hawkins Watch" all week, it's too boring.
See you in the morning,
Toad Update 7/19/99 #1 13:02 EMAIL and ICQ
Around 11:30 or so we were considering the Aug 730 puts (OEZTF) - probably at 14 to 14 1/4.
Market started some funny stuff and we didn't get comfortable enough to hop - they shot up to 15 1/4 and now are back to 14.
CNBC thinks it's the low volume today...    Glad we are still FLAT. Stay tuned...
7/19/99 10:30
Good morning, back at our home pond; slowed down a little this morning changing from our traveling computer back to our home computer. By the pond, watching - stay tuned...

For all of you who wonder why...    Read this: Options Expiration Friday!

Toad Update 7/15/99 #2 12:34 EMAIL and ICQ
It's lunch time and Mrs. Toad talked me into calling it a day. Probably a good idea for all of us; a lot of risk and sucker plays out there. It's OEW and tomorrow is dreaded OEF (Options Expiraton Friday!) We ALWAYS take off OEF and recommend the same for you.
I will post the article about taking off on OEF on the site tonight.    Have a great weekend - we are outta here.
Toad Update 7/15/99 #1 11:11 EMAIL and ICQ
It's still OEW and the market is UP on CPI news, UP on Earnings and DOWN on other earnings. Overall we have the A's leading, Tick negative and Trin on the bullish side.
It still feels like OEW.
7/15/99 9:30
Good morning - looks like another day; what are we gonna do today?
7/14/99 Evening
Have speculated today that maybe we should take off OEW. We coulda hopped out with $1 - but we were trying for $2. Hmmmmmmmmm. Maybe 2 isn't a good idea during OEW.
See you in the morning.
Toad Update 7/14/99 #3 14:03 EMAIL and ICQ
Just confirmed that we hopped out of the July 720 puts (OEZSD) at 4.
Had our sell at 6 1/2 after it hit 6 1/2 - lowered it to 6 even and it kept going down. Doesn't look good for PUTS.
I hate OEW.
Toad Update 7/14/99 #2 11:36 EMAIL and ICQ
Weird market, we may hop out with a 1/2 or 1 instead of our usual $2.
UNLESS it starts to go in our direction again. Watch this one closely; remember it's OEW!
Toad Update 7/14/99 #1 11:03 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped into 10 contracts of July 720 PUTS (OEZSD) at $5 1/2.
Will let you know when we hop out,
7/14/99 9:30
Good Morning, looks like the market is going up today and we were looking at PUTS yesterday. Glad we don't EVER (mostly never) hold over and glad we don't try to predict the market. Stay tuned...
7/13/99 Evening
Does this feel like OEW to you also??
On top of that, my Intel had disappointing numbers - bummer. Tough on us Amphibian Americans here at the pond....
See you in the morning.
Toad Update 7/13/99 #2 13:23 EMAIL and ICQ
Don't know if this is Argentina, Summer Doldrums, or OEW (Options Expiration Week) or whatever.. screwy.
We have considered the July 720 puts (OEZSD) SEVERAL TIMES. Thought they were probably a good deal at 6 1/2 - or maybe at 6 or maybe at 5 3/4. Market is mostly meandering sideways and our favorite, Intel is reporting tonight.
Geez,
    looks like a put,
    maybe a call
    - or perhaps,
    nothing at all.
    (Toad Poet!)

Toad Update 7/13/99 #1 11:17 EMAIL and ICQ
"Don't cry for me Argentina"... Sorry Madonna (Evita), I just had to do that.
    The morning drop reminded us of two things:
    1) We can't catch a fast move in the morning - if we could, we would probably regret it.
    2) Really glad we didn't have the 720 calls we were considering around 1:30 yesterday.
Flat and still watching the pond.
7/13/99 9:30
Good Morning, market is likely to take a hit today with the Latin American news. We'll keep an eye on things...

CNBC called this a real "summer Monday" - Y   A   W   N...
Looked like it wanted to start moving a couple of times today, but just when we would get our little legs warmed up for the HOP - nothing hoppened (sorry).
Looks like we will be FLAT one more day.
Toad Update 7/12/99 #1 11:30 EMAIL and ICQ
Appears to be a slight downward trend although the market hasn't really made a commitment yet, so we won't either. Staying FLAT, so there...

Hey!
Etrade is back up! Oops, market is about closed.
I QUIT. We are not gonna hop this late in the day.
Seriously looked at the July720 calls (OEZGD) and they dropped $1 in just 10 minutes. I was just looking, not buying. Yesterday's put is down to 3 1/2 - urp.
Have a great weekend - see you Monday morning.

For some strange reason, I wanted to repost this from our 6/7/99 Evening update:
    We frequently receive requests for recommendations on internet broker services. Generally, we respond by listing brokers that we know some of our Toadsters are using. We do not specifically recommend anyone.

    Last week, on CNBC, Julio Gomez, of Gomez Advisors, spoke about his Internet Brokers Scorecard. You can find the scorecard and additional comments on each broker at:
    Hope this helps, particularly if you're not happy with your current broker.

Toad Update 7/9/99 #2 13:14 EMAIL and ICQ
Etrade is down.
At least here at the pond it's down. We have seen it before where we are up and other parts of the country are down - so don't know how widespread it is.
Have switched to schwab or I could call in to etrade (yea, right! - just got a status update and that took 10 minutes.)
Still watching the pond.
Toad Update 7/9/99 #1 12:24 EMAIL and ICQ
At least the Bagels are exciting today. Had the good ones with the dark spots - still don't know it they are flies or raisins - but they are tasty.
So, where is the market going today - - - - do we trust the A/D line?
Still flat and hungry....
7/9/99 9:30
Good morning, it's Friday - is everyone having BAGELS today? We are! Cyber Bagels courtesy of Bagels for All     By the pond, watching. Market wants to go up...
7/8/99 Evening
We didn't hop out this morning when we were EVEN and when the market started to climb, we couldn't move fast enough to hop out. Missed opportunity.

Thought the market was going DOWN and the A/D line confirmed it ALL DAY problem is - the market never really sustained the downward momentum. Someone shoulda told the market; WE were talking to it ALL DAY!

Thanks to all of you who said nice things - and from Mrs. Toad:
you are a     D   A   A   A   A   A   A   Y   T   R   A   D   E   R     ...

Toad Update 7/8/99 #2 15:18 EMAIL and ICQ
That's it - we dumped the July 715 puts (OEZSC) at 6 1/8.
Yes, they went for 8 1/2 this morning and we were trying to get 9 1/2.
OEX might go lower, but we wanted OUT. We are FLAT (and a little thinner.)
Toad Update 7/8/99 #1 11:42 EMAIL and ICQ
Had our sell set at 9 1/2 today on the morning run. It never hit it and we stayed in past our welcome...
We are going to see if we get a surge at lunch-time and then dump the July 715 puts (OEZSC) for what we can get. Only way we will stay in is if the indicators start to move with us again.
UGH.
7/8/99 9:30
Good morning, we are thinking DOWN thoughts, stay tuned...
7/7/99 Evening
Yes, we are holding over and no we won't get much sleep here IN the pond. Let's see what tomorrow brings, see you here.
IN the pond!

Toad Update 7/7/99 #3 15:52 EMAIL and ICQ
Yep, I'm holding over. Coulda hopped out when it hit $9, but we had our sell set at 10 1/2 and thought we could hit 10 or 10 1/2 today.
So, we are holding over (ugh), unless someone dumps the market - and it doesn't look like that will happen. Why not get out now? The A/D is STILL favoring the D's and the tick keeps going negative.
Let's think DOWN thoughts until the am.
Toad Update 7/7/99 #2 15:02 EMAIL and ICQ
Sure looked like that sucker was coming back to us - our July 715 puts (OEZSC) are gong for 7 3/4 now. That puts us down $625.
What are we gonna do? This has been a tease all day.
We will probably wait to see if the 3:00 crowd dumps the market and then make our decision to hop out or hold over - ugh.
Toad Update 7/7/99 #1 12:30 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped into 10 contracts of the July 715 puts (OEZSC) at 8 3/8.
Will let you know when we hop out.
7/7/99 9:30
Good morning, pretty flat opening is forecast, let's see...
7/6/99 Evening
Yes, the calls would have been a mistake and the puts would have been OK. The puts finished at 10 1/2 after hitting a high of 11 1/2 - didn't trust the market and our signals were not strong. The A/D line changed from 15/14 to 14/15 - not much conviction for the Toad. So, we might have carried the puts over and the market sure looks like it wants to go UP! We are FLAT and waiting for the am. See you by the pond.
      Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to Toad, happy birthday to you.

Toad Update 7/6/99 #3 15:17 EMAIL and ICQ
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH. (A Toad scream!)
Pulled our order on 10 contracts of the July 720 Puts (OEZSD) at 8 1/2 - DIDN'T BUY THEM. Market looked like it wasn't gonna go down any more...
Guess what, IT DID! The 720 puts are up a buck already. What a wimp!
Still flat and watching the pond.
Toad Update 7/6/99 #2 13:46 EMAIL and ICQ
OK, I did look at the July 720 calls (OEZGD) and CONSIDERED them at $11.
BUT, we didn't trust the tick, trin, A/D, OEX or the lunch-bunch.
Still FLAT and happy about that! The July 720 calls are now: 10 X 10 1/2.
Toad Update 7/6/99 #1 12:42 EMAIL and ICQ
We have picked up 3 OEX points since the lunch-bunch hit the market. What's it gonna do from here?
Not sure, so - we are staying by the side of the pond for awhile yet.

Like I said earlier: naaaaaaaaaaahhh. We didn't want to hop into those calls. Glad we didn't - they are going for a buck less than where we woulda hopped in.
Good day to be FLAT. If we woulda held over this weekend - it's a THREE DAY weekend. Ugh. We don't sleep well when we are in the pond.
Flat and ready for the 4th fireworks.
(don't tell Mrs. Toad, I paid someone to replant the bushes.)
Toad Update 7/2/99 #1 13:15 EMAIL and ICQ
Looked at the July 710 Calls (OEZGB) and almost considered hopping in around 12:15. Then realized the lunch-bunch was here, plus with the low volume today - we need to be careful.
Didn't do it, market appears to be trending up and the A/D is slightly favoring the A's. Hmmmmmm... May be able to pick up 1/2 - naaaaaahh.
Still flat and watching.
7/2/99 9:30
Non-farm payrolls up - Globex up slightly - bagels are great - let's see what happens today, stay tuned...
7/1/99 Evening
I got a reprieve on the bushes - looks like I'll be working around the house this weekend...

Market today was plain weird, after I sent out Update #2 - the market took off and I considered hopping into the July 700 calls (OEZGT) - and didn't. Notice when we go into the 700 to 795 range we are trading OEZ's.

I'm about ready for Friday and BAGELS!

The A/D hasn't been very convincing today and the rest of the indicators have been ho-hum also. Need I even mention that this is a weird market?
We are staying FLAT - and going to replant some bushes around the pond tonight.
Toad Update 7/1/99 #1 12:08 EMAIL and ICQ
The purchasing managers report today worried some - so what are we gonna do today?
The lunch-bunch is just coming in - hmmmmmm.
Tick negative, market up, Trin Bullish, A/D line is slightly UP (toward the A's), volume UP - stomach growling, need lunch, what are we gonna do the first day of July?
Let's eat lunch and keep an eye on the pond. Stay tuned.
7/1/99 9:30
Good morning, looks like a slight retrenchment is in store - at least for the open.
6/30/99 Later in the Evening
Just checked   -   we are UP $11,384 THIS MONTH and 188 % this year!

6/30/99 Evening
Mrs. Toad and I went shopping right as the market closed today. Back now with some new duds for our upcoming trip.

Now, about the market today; I had NO IDEA which way the market was going to go. It's even worse than that, I had my buy screen up with an order ready to go on the July 685 Puts - they were running around 11 X 11 1/2. Now you know why the Toad doesn't gamble. What ever happened to Buy on the Rumor (yesterday) and Sell on the News? (today)

I didn't think the rally would last today - felt the market was having a short, dramatic spurt up and then would wind up about 50 points down for the day. SO, when it didn't hit my sell point of $18, I lowered it to get out. OUCH!
Our July 690 Calls (OEYGR) that we hopped into at $13 and hopped out of at $16 - hit $20 today! Had some Toadsters stay in longer today and they got out at $18 plus!

We are green, FLAT, and happy. See you in the morning.
Toad Update 6/30/99 #4 15:26 EMAIL and ICQ
What a chicken Toad I am. I just checked the July 690 calls (OEYGR) and they just hit $18 1/4 and the ASK is now 18 1/2.
SCW, SCW, SCW - hey, we are FLAT and didn't LOSE!

AWWWWW, they hit a HIGH of 18 1/2 ........ sniff, sniff. sniff., ribbitt, ribbitt.....
Toad Update 6/30/99 #3 14:42 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped out of the July 690 Calls (OEYGR) at 16.
Had the sell set at 18 (Hey, at Toad can dream, can't he!) and missed the 17, etc. So we are out at 16 and we can live with that.

Finished lunch, sorta waiting around the pond today, for something, maybe the FEDS! About an hour to go.

Stay tuned.
6/30/99 9:35
Good morning, CNBC "briefcase indicator" says FOMC will raise rates by 1/4 point - DUH! - so does the rest of the world. Stay tuned...
6/29/99 Evening
We were tracking calls all day and everytime we thought we were getting close to hopping, our signals turned. The final spurt during the last hour was too fast for a Toad to catch and we SURE didn't want to get caught holding over the day before the FOMC interest rate decision. Market too tricky for a Toad, let's wait to see what happens with Dr. G tomorrow. Dr. G - THE MAN        See you by the pond in the am.

Toad Update 6/29/99 #2 15:45 EMAIL and ICQ
Who woulda thought - the day before FOMC and the market takes off. The prez is talking about increased government spending on Medicare and the market takes off. Four days before the 4th of July and the market rockets. (The 4th of July reference was from Mrs. Toad - she loves fireworks!)
Geez, 1/4 point is priced in and what happens tomorrow?
We will be here - market backing off now... hmmmm..
Toad Update 6/29/99 #1 13:08 EMAIL and ICQ
Well, its FMOC day one and we are staying FLAT for now.
Looks like most are just watching, no commitment until the FED commits.
We WILL hop if we see an opportunity - that's our commitment.

Everyone seems to be waiting for the FOMC; we don't really expect much of anything to happen today. Sitting by the pond, waiting, waiting, waiting ...

Market has been in a trading range since the pop up this morning. Look at a chart - we entered the range at 10:30 and nothing really happened since then.
Hope we don't have to wait until the FOMC gets done!
Still sitting by the pond, watching.
Toad Update 6/28/99 #1 12:10 EMAIL and ICQ
No hop yet. Too fast for a Toad to hop on the run up.
Market has backed off, the TICK is negative and the A/D is 2 to 1. CNBC says volume is seriously weak, lunch bunch is in and the Fed meets tomorrow. What's a Toad to do?
This one's staying FLAT right now. Stay tuned...

Let's hear it for the SPURS! GO Spurs!    Back from ESPN Center, saw the first half there - too crowded for Toads. GO SPURS!
Spurs!               Spurs 78, NY 77       NBA CHAMPS!               Spurs!

That's it, we're done. Going to see the mouse and then the Spurs.
Followed the July 670 and 675 puts today. Our entry woulda been right where it is now, woulda gone against us 1 1/2 and we'd be HOLDING OVER THE WEEKEND. Mrs Toad would be turning red (she has been in the sun today!) so we're glad we're FLAT for the weekend.
Go SPURS!
Toad Update 6/25/99 #2 14:02 EMAIL and ICQ
No hop yet. The lunch bunch took the wind out of the market's sails. Both the AT (Apprentice Toad) and I don't trust this market enough to get into a put right now. A/D still favors the As.
The AT is raring to hop and Mrs Toad is out by the pool. She says if the market doesn't do something soon, she's heading to Mouseland.
AT and I agree.

We are at Mickey's place - miceland.
We are here at Embassy Suites. We are going to Mickey's place later today and will watch the SPURS at ESPN center. So, if you're around Disney World this weekend, look for two short, green amphibians hopping around - the cute one with mouse ears is Mrs. Toad!
As we mentioned earlier, we're using the "travel computer" and if you are on ICQ - let us know if you DID NOT receive your test message via ICQ.
Market shot UP on open, backed off and now is going sideways. Stay tuned . . .

Sitting by the pool - notice we always find water.
6/25/99 9:30
Good morning, looking for an UP market at open. Stay tuned...
6/25/99 Early
Guess where we are today!       Mickey    Orlando!
6/24/99 Evening
Folks, don't get me wrong, I'm happy for all the people who got out HIGHER than the Toad. Why should it bother me.... that the July 670 Puts (OEYSN) ran up to 15 1/4 today - after I hopped out at 14!

Remember a Toad's favorite color - GREEN!       Can't complain when we make some!

Also, remember our favorite food - BAGELS Cyber Bagels courtesy of Bagels for All - 
see Links page for more info.   - in the morning! See you then.
Toad Update 6/24/99 #4 13:41 EMAIL and ICQ
OK, I was wr... wr....wr..... WRONG.     (Mrs. Toad made me say that!)
The OEX DID go lower... and the option (July 670 Put) did go HIGHER.
Hey, we made some green and we are FLAT.
Toad Update 6/24/99 #3 12:47 EMAIL and ICQ
I'm out of the July 670 Puts (OEYSN) at 14.
Had our sell at 14 1/2 and it NEVER got to mine.
Lowered it to $14 cause wasn't sure if the market will stay down this much today.
SO, we are FLAT!
Toad Update 6/24/99 #2 11:28 EMAIL and ICQ
I'm in - just hopped into 10 contracts of the July 670 Puts (OEYSN) at 12 1/4.
I know, it's 1 1/4 higher than I wanted awhile ago. Guess my mouse is a little slow today. URP.
Will let you know when we hop out.
Toad Update 6/24/99 #1 11:15 EMAIL and ICQ
I DIDN'T get filled on the July 670 Puts (OEYSN) at $11.
Chased them a little and I'm still flat.
Will let you know when we hop.
6/24/99 9:30
Good morning, no surprise on May Durable Goods numbers (+1.4%), GLOBEX down a little, sounds like a down opening. Stay tuned...
6/23/99 Evening
Let's hear it for the SPURS! GO Spurs!     Spurs!  Spurs 96, NY 89  
YEA! See you in the morning.
Toad Update 6/23/99 #3 15:33 EMAIL and ICQ
So, you thought when I said it looked like yesterday that I was gonna hop into a PUT - didn't you?
NO WAY - look at the indicators and at the market - SUCKER PLAYS. This market has been in a trading range since 10:00 with no breakouts.
Not gonna do it today - take a nap.
Toad Update 6/23/99 #2 14:30 EMAIL and ICQ
Geez, this looks like yesterday.
Earlier had been looking at CALLS but all signals said PUTS.
Deja vu all over again. (Yogi Berra)
Stay tuned and Good trading.
6/23/99 9:30
Good morning, looks like a down market at the start and then.... stay tuned.

This definitely qualifies as a Frequently Asked Question, so we will add it to the FAQ pages:

    1.     If you have a cell phone that can receive emails (lots of people do) then we can email our updates to your cell phone.
    2.     If you have a pager that can receive emails (lots of people do) then we can email our updates to your pager.
      We maintain two different pager lists - one for the pagers that receive 240 characters and the other for the pagers that receive 80 characters. The 80 character pagers receive an abbreviated message that just says:

Any questions? If none, we will see you in the morning.
6/22/99 Evening
The July 685 Puts we hopped into today hit a high of 14 5/8 after we hopped out. You know what we say: We are happy and it doesn't bother us... bother us.... bother us........
You see, we were trying to RAISE our order to 14 1/2 when we got filled!     bother us.... bother us.......

We are glad we didn't hop into CALLS earlier today - Oops, just checked the charts, we coulda made a buck on the July 685 Calls today.... hmmmm     BUT, if we woulda tried for more - we would be DOWN as they closed at 12 1/4.   You know what else we say: SCW... SCW...
Toad Update 6/22/99 #3 15:44 EMAIL and ICQ
I'm outta the July 685 Puts (OEYSQ) at 14, was trying to RAISE my sell and I got filled.
I'm FLAT, will let you know when we hop again.
Toad Update 6/22/99 #2 15:04 EMAIL and ICQ
We just hopped into 5 contracts of the July 685 Puts (OEYSQ) at 12.
May just try to get $1 and hop back out - keep your eye on the market.
Will let you know when we hop out.
Toad Update 6/22/99 #1 11:48 EMAIL and ICQ
We had an order in for the July 685 CALLS (OEYGQ) at 14 3/4 and we chickened out. Why? Everything we look at says this sucker wants to DROP and we hate trading against our own signals.
Market looked like it wanted to go up - but right now everything else says it's going down.
PLUS, we have the lunch-bunch looming.
6/22/99 9:30
Globex is down, looks like we are set to open lower this morning. Stay tuned...
6/21/99 Evening
Yep, glad we didn't trade. If we had, we woulda been holding over. Most of you know, we have a small problem with holding over. It makes us nervous to stay in the pond overnight - bad things can happen when we are in...

Grandma Toad is back from Littleton, Colorado - has some pictures of Columbine HS and the flowers, bears, etc. - they could still use our prayers out there.
Spurs are playing again tonight - in a hostile environment! Spurs!  Spurs 81, NY 89   - Bummer.
6/21/99 13:50
Will update the site after we get back from the airport.
Toad Update 6/21/99 #2 15:32 EMAIL and ICQ
NOT gonna do it. This is a day to stay out of the pond. Low volume all around and the options we have been tracking haven't done much today.
When it looked like the start of a rally - it fizzled. When it looked like... well, it wasn't a trading day.
Have to leave for the airport right at 4:00 to pick up Grandma Toad. (Mrs. Toad's mother.)
Will update the site later tonight.
Toad Update 6/21/99 #1 13:21 EMAIL and ICQ
Sort of feels like a Monday around the pond today.
The market is down some, OEX is only down 1.55. We are watching and listening - nothing yet.
6/21/99 9:30
Good morning, hope y'all had a great weekend like we did - Little Toad was home!    Looking like the market wants to go UP (or is it DOWN?), let's see...
