DJ Art Cashin's Remix Of A Christmas Carol

Tyler Durden's picture

From Art Cashin

‘Tis three days before Christmas and at each brokerage house
The only thing stirring was the click of a mouse

Down on the Exchange the tape inches along
Brokers bargained and traded as they hummed an old song

The Fed struggled and struggled to make payrolls renew
They went back to their playbook and began QE2

The new airport pat downs put some folks in a funk
Prompting one fellow’s warning don’t dare “touch my junk”

A lady named Kagan has joined the Supremes
And Rahm left the White House with mayoral dreams

Chelsea had a big wedding Bristol Palin just danced
While “Toy Story” returned to keep millions entranced

A volcano in Iceland kept some planes on the ground
And Rangel got censured but he’s still around

We had an election and the House made a switch
There was even a slogan saying “I’m not a witch”

Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga there’s little to cheer
But it’s Christmastime Alice and Santa is near

So stop looking backwards have a cup of good cheer
And kiss you a loved one raise your hopes for next year

And amidst all the trading Christmas themes we will heed
And share our good fortune with families in need

And tomorrow they’ll pause as we wait on the bell
To sing a tradition a song for old “Nell”

Don’t let this year’s problems impede Christmas Cheer
Resolve to be happy throughout the New Year

And resist ye Grinch feelings Let joy never stop Put the bad at the bottom
keep the good on the top

So count up your blessings along with you worth
You’re still living here in the best place on earth

And think ye of wonders that light children's eyes
And hope Santa will bring you that Christmas surprise

So play ye a carol by Mario Lanza
Unless you are waiting to celebrate Kwanzaa

Sure Hanukah’s ended and Ramadan’s gone
Different folks, different holidays may their spirit live on

Whatever your feast is we hope you all still
Find yourself just surrounded by folks of goodwill

Thursday, as the bell rings hark to your heart’s call
And as Santa would shout Merry Christmas to All!

Love it.

Art is like your Uncle who has bet and worked at the track for thirty years and has seen every fool and winner and every nag and champion come and go ten times over.  I'd listen to him over Warren Buffet or another bookie any day.

Great perspective.

Thank you Tyler and thank you Art Cashin,

Merry Christmas.

And your point is.....? Art has been bearish since the bounce began in March 2009 but knows that countertrend rallies can take their own sweet time. He's also an old timer that you youngins could only dream to know as much as he has forgotten. His napkin charting has been spot on and while many commentors here love to act like he is too old for the current game, stop fooling yourself,  Art knows. He knows what is happening. He's not selling the Fed nonsense. He's not selling anything when he talks...he's just Art. 

So for all you youngins out there that think you know so much, respect your elders. Art is worthy of all the respect he gets. If he said the sky was falling and it didn't then you would all think he was a fool. But the sky is falling and he knows it and whenever he makes a statement (like we are in the most bullish time seasonally so it is unlikely the market will go down), it is for a few days forward--not the next 6 months or a year.

I enjoyed Art's post. Glad Christmas is almost over (40 minutes) so we can all get back to real life.

The Official Obama Party Approved Christmas Carol.

Sometimes, we can only laugh at the 'Hope & Change' agenda.

Is Art expected to wear skin colored undergarments....?

I thought art was the W.C. Fields incarnate (or decendant).  Intelligent, drunk and narcissistic.
