Market Reports! (Reprise)

Today I’ll be speaking and moderating a panel at The Big Picture Conference 2011 at the New York Athletic Club in NYC.  The few breaks in the action will find me checking quotes and returning client emails and phone calls so you can expect a quiet day here on TRB. 

And speaking of checking quotes, this morning I linked out to Felix Salmon’s dissection of those market report headlines that the mainstream media jams the interwebs with each day.  I find them to be pointless and misleading at best.  On September 28th I did my own send-up of the genre, reposted in its entirety below, enjoy! – Josh
