Today Is the Day – Major Stock Market Signal

Yesterday: Wednesday, June 20, 2012 – was the summer solstice.  I’m sure there’s someone out there on the vast Interwebs who will tell you that there is some sort of stock market signal embedded therein.  But today, Thursday, June 21, 2012, there is a much more glaring signal staring straight at you.   I wrote about this several weeks ago, but I’m not sure anyone was paying attention.

That’s right – tonight is the debut of the Snooki and Jwoww show on MTV.

Look, if the world can withstand this crap, I am optimistic for our future.  Or maybe I’m pessimistic that this show gets made at all.  Whatever – anyway, if Greece, Spain, The Fed and Facebook couldn’t sink this market, and we fend off the obvious apocalyptic omen of Snookie & Jwoww, well, it has to be bullish for the markets, right?

I asked loyal reader and pop culture expert, Bones, for his thoughts on this issue, and he replied succinctly:

“Brownian motion does not capture the fat tails that are Jwoww and Schnooks.”


disclosure: I’m mostly hedged.  I may wait until the Friday morning market reaction to Snookie & Jwoww before making any big asset allocation decisions.
