S&P500 change since start 1/17/05: +27.4% My NAV change since start: +181.7%
The markets were volatile today.
Oil was up.
The jobs report was stronger than expected, at 166,000 jobs (slightly above the population growth of the country, so not fantastic, but expectations were way lower). Frankly the jobs number is so massaged--and so changed by later updates and adjustments--that it's a wonder the number receives as much attention as it does.
Between those two things, the worries were that the economy would slow. The market started down. Late in the session Citigroup announced an emergency weekend board meeting, which mollified the markets, especially the routed financials. The markets ended slightly up. Of course, liquidity has been injected into the system, too.
Gold and silver started flat but ended higher. My portfolio followed the commodities upward.
I'm still doing that Marketocracy faux portfolio. It's doing quite well. Check it out here. Lots of similiarities to my very very real portfolio here--lots of commodities stocks. But a broader mix of others too, since it's supposed to be more of a mutual fund, and not a sector fund either. As of now, if the M100 (made up of a rotating mix of the best-performing faux portfolios, and turned into a REAL mutual fund) included my fund, it would be doing better than it is! This is especially true of the long-term, as you can see by the chart.

I have been taking splenda for several months. Just lately I realized that the moles on arms and especially legs had increased.By a sudden impulse while visiting my doctor for something else I showed the increased moles to him on one leg. He pointed out that two of the moles did not look good, he sent one small part of one of them to the lab and it came back as pre- cancerous. Both moles have been removed since. No more splenda for me.,777082,http://adroit.blogdrive.com/archive/602.html
