We got some pho and hit our usual bookstore, Magus Books, good shop.
Out before sunrise for a long walk on a chilly Sunday morning, here are some boats in the Shilshole Bay Marina. The tide was high, and the Puget Sound water was very clear.

A statue of Leif Ericson stands guard over the boats.
This apartment block is almost finished in Ballard. It's funny that they had to wrap it around this shitty gas station. The only good thing that can be said for it is that it appears to use real plywood instead of the usual chipboard garbage.

One block north, they have just got the hole in for this beauty. I'm sure it's needed, yes, of course.
|Moar apartments now, moar!|
The Olympics were out in the crisp air.

This week is important in the markets because we still do not know if the January 1 Bradley turn date did indeed mark a top and a turn, much less the top. We need some follow-up and confirmation. We need some carnage on the indexes before op-ex, to get us down in the 1720s on the SPX before a big bounce.
It's still very early, but we need some big red candles soon.
