August, 2006........

No valuation
worth our consideration.
Oh, such frustration!

September, 2006..........

Markets pause again,
Overbought or oversold?
That is the question!

It seems the market
has more paws, or is that pause
than a centipede.

October, 2006..........

The Dow 12,000:
What does it mean? Anything?
Or nothing at all?

November, 2006.....

Markets rise and fall,
Old "zen" was peak of tech stocks.
Of course, this is Dow.

Fish swim in large schools.
They need to be careful of
swimming in small pools!

When the lemmings jump,
Most die. With a parachute
of cash, soft landing.

3rd Quarter Earnings
have been excellent. But the
prices reflect that.

The number of posts here
is inverse of the market

AIM board is quiet
like watching a sleeping cat
or watching paint dry

Contrary action
surfaces in all aspects
of our investing.

AIM Board is quiet
giving me time for day dreams.
Some are productive.

Buy from the scared, sell
to the greedy. This yin-yang
is the Tao of AIM.

Hi AIMster same thought
AIMing is like Zen
The Tao of investing

AIMing is like Zen
Nothing to be done
Nothing is left undone

Market down today.
My account is up today.
What does it matter.

Market down today.
My account is up today.
Does it mean anything?

Market down today.
My account is up today.
Am I brillient?

Market down today.
Will it go to my head that
my account is up?

I post very often,
butt can knot spel verry well.
Think any less of me?

Stocks are volatile.
Some day we will be no more.
Does it all matter?

FOREX is active,
but high volatility
comes from leverage.

How will your head feel,
if the market soars upward,
but your account falls?

Emotional trap.
Against such be vigilant,
lest you be AIMless!

Half empty, half full?
Point of equilibrium.
Like the AIM hold zone.

Banked profits equal
equity current value.
Perfect place to be.

Re: Canadian Haiku.......

AIM Canadian,
Buy low, sell high, eh, hoser?
Beauty way to go!

Doughnuts, back bacon,
Crullers, and lots of beer, eh?
McKenzies live on!

Elections cycle.
Pendulum swings to and fro.
And the band played on.

Pelosi and Bush:
Who would have thought, such a pair?
Markets give a damn?

"Puppies of the Dow",
Can offer tail-wagging gains,
Unless in doghouse!

December, 2006

Worrying traders
watch twitchy market action
with anxiety.

Year End Strategies
create some compromises
for the AIM User.

Tax Loss Selling is
a common activity;
so not contrary.

Contrary buyers
sometimes find precious jewels
in tax seller's trash.

A Short-term trader
sweats time, buy-and-hold, sweats risk.
Is there an answer?

In AIM is balance.
Knowing when to buy, to sell,
Contrary motion.

Go against the grain
Of common investing myths
Is its own reward.

There is a season
To buy or sell, AIM will choose
With it's own logic.

Never risk too much,
The reward comes in due time,
As gains will compound.

Excellent series
of philosophical truths
investors should read.

Yield curve inverted;
economic stress showing.
Should we be concerned?

A hold zone's hold zone!
Two buck's value change today!
Portfolio yawn!!!

my hold zone blues have vanished.
Daily interest!

For those of us who
recall FOREX, the condom,
kids, cash, still risky!!

Buy from the Scared; Sell to the Greedy.....
