Thinking and Linking on a Saturday Morning

* Why dividends matter; what hedge funds really provide; and other important market themes from Abnormal Returns;

* My open letter to Edenbridge;

* Which banks are in trouble; questioning the market bottom; and more good link updates from Trader Mike;

* Kirk tracks stocks in play each morning;

* Chris Perruna reviews Brian Shannon's text on technical analysis across multiple timeframes;

* Thanks to an alert reader, who passed along this article on the brain as a muscle;

* What happens after a drop following a bounce from Quantifiable Edges;

* Jeff Miller links the Best of A Dash;

* Declan posts an interesting trading strategy;

* Nice to be one of the top three. I think. Even nicer for a Duke grad to be compared to Coach K, even if it's a bit over the top. Here's an interesting trading post from SMB.

Thanks for these, a bunch are really interesting (esp. Declan and SMB).

I liked the "drop following a bounce" posting. This is the sort of analysis I do a lot. If one believes in the cyclical nature of the universe, there should be something in that.

And speaking of historical similarities, check out striking similarity of the weekly Dow chart of this past week and the week ending 3/28/08 on any number of different technical indicators. If that particular history repeats itself, I'd be looking to put on my long hat soon...

Hi Michele,

Yes, you have a very interesting hypothesis here!
