Cheney Booed LOUDLY, Throws Out First Pitch At Washington Nationals Home Opener

From the AP:

He stood directly in front of the mound and released a ball that hit the dirt in front of home plate. Nationals catcher Brian Schneider scooped it up.

Cheney wore a red-and-blue Nationals jacket that seemed bulky, perhaps filled out by a bulletproof vest. Security agents ringed the top edge of the outdoor stadium.

Quick Cubes Update (and OPTC bonus!)

As mentioned in my most recent Cubes (NASDAQ: QQQQ) posting, the air is thin above the $42 level, which the Cubes are now back below. Also note the new low in the Money Flow indicator. On the plus side for bulls is the late day rally that developed into the close that brought the Cubes up off the lows, as you can see from the lower shadow on today’s candle. Also on the plus side is the fact that many leading stocks that had been fallen back into their bases or been beaten back to their 20-day or 50-day EMAs started to try to bounce yesterday. See the continuation of the post to see an example.
