$450M Thursday – A Least It’s a Nice Frame

$450,000,000! ; ; That's a lot of money to spend on a painting and yet another justification for my daughter to go to art school! ; It just goes to show you how rich the rich are gettin as the previous record for a painting at auction was $300M for Kooning's "Interchange" 2 years ago and this painting was previously purchased in 2013 for "only" $127.5M – how's that for...

A down week? What is that? ; Since when do markets go lower? ; Well, they don't generally (any more) and this market hasn't had a down week since the first week of September, when the S&P was at 2,450 so it was a nice 150-point run (6.12%) before pulling back and the 5% Rule™ says we can expect a 30-point weak retracement to 2,570 and that's exactly what we got but 2,570 is still a 5...
