    I was too busy to buy anything, not even lunch. :mad:

    Interesting that many markets are telling you "meh" at this point.

    The markets (numbers only) or media's spin?

    Mostly the stock and commodities markets, definitely not the media. I fully expected stocks to tank, except for energy, and some commodities to have significant gains. While the fat lady hasn't sung on these latest geo-pol events, the lack of reaction indicates that I know a lot less about this herd than I thought. This situation reminds me of Carl Spackler, when he found the turd in the pool, took a bite, and said, "It's no big deal."

    Maybe I should send in my rezy to Motion & BigBird.

    I think the consensus is that the war was already priced in before today.

    The ETH I bought this morning had a nice jump! Though I believe we're still going to see more free fall.

    if only there was a way to automatically buy stocks at a preset price limit. Maybe call it a "limit order"

    but high gas prices should be good for EVs, right?

    For established manufacturers I am sure.

    The supply chain required to build an EV relies heavily on petroleum. Sure they might get increased sales, but their manufacturing cost are going to go through the roof. For a start up, or a company that is reinvesting heavily, this will be a very tough situation. This just hurts everybody at a time when most are already on the ropes after the past 2 years. There are going to be a lot of industrial auctions in the coming months/years.

    Anyone know what's going on with BABA today? I have been delaying my decision to buy as it kept dropping but it's now at a point where I think I want to go in.
