4/13 – 2:40 p.m. New York time

I’m closing down my trading desk, with no new positions in my holdings and no exits in sight. The U.S. markets will next be open on Monday, April 17.

4/13 – 10:40 a.m. New York time

No prospective trades have developed since today’s opening bell, neither entrances nor exits. I anticipate that this last day before the Good Friday market holiday will be a very slow one for my trading desk.

4/12 – 8:30 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective new positions for action on Thursday.
