I spent much of today learning about RSI (Relative Strength Index) and its use as a momentum oscillator to help identify overbought and oversold stock, bearish and bullish divergences, failure swings, uptrends, downtrends, and reversals. It’s complex stuff, occasionally confusing, but once it begins to make sense, it’s fascinating to spot the patterns. My goal is to master a basic understanding of a different technical indicator each day. Next up: MACD, Bollinger bands, Fibonacci retracement and, if I’m feeling particularly daring, Ichimoku cloud!
I received a delivery order from a wholesale meat producer that usually services restaurants. I think I may have accidentally ordered 10 lbs of wings which, it turns out, is considerably more than what I assumed my buddy Ivon and I could put away at Wild Wings. Thank goodness for that extra mini freezer I picked up.
And while we’re on the subject, I’d just like all the fried chicken restaurants in Toronto to know that people don’t just eat fried chicken at dinner. Sometimes, they would LOVE to have it for lunch too.
So tell me, what favorite restaurant meal are you missing?

And Amazing People With Whom I Have Worked…
The brilliant Greg Whiteside was the computer and playback supervisor on #DarkMatter, surprising us every morning with a new image on the Raza mess triptych. He also built a biodigester, donating the fertilizer to a local community garden. pic.twitter.com/975wNmHlHj

Restaurant meal I’m missing: Blueberry buttermilk pancakes from Jim’s (local San Antonio diner chain). Probably could order them via delivery service, but restaurants will open at 25% capacity on Friday in Texas.
Ok, regular Joe Buffett, have you figured out what to invest yet?
Enjoy the wings. That’s a lot to last you for a while. LOL
You’re shorting gold again, aren’t you? Me? I’m buying stock in snack foods…
As for restaurant meals, I’d have say that I miss sushi, prime rib, and grits. At this point, I’d take it all in one sitting. 😉
What are ‘grits’ JeffW? In Australia it’s just what I cleaned out of the corner of the rooms.
We didn’t close down the restaurants in Oz, like they did in NZ. So you can get anything, I noticed though people started learning how to cook. What IS this the thing about making bread?
I miss sitting down in a restaurant – apart from Pizza, that’s what restaurants are for. The pizza place we generally like to eat there too, though because we like teasing the cook, as is customary.
The vet is open thank goodness, I’ve been back and forth there 4x the last 10 days.
I miss the start-ups, teasing the staff, teasing the people at my table I miss the business, the chit chat, the ups and downs. I miss Wednesday and Thursays when we make community lunches, which are so good. The 500 or so people bustling around. But – we have it so very good down here.
I wish though I was home in New Zealand. I miss the beauty.
Grits are coarse ground corn that is used as a base or side dish for various dishes in the American South. I like mine cheesy with a lot of butter, and I occasionally mix my eggs in too.
This might help give you a better idea:
There is a family owned Moroccan restaurant in my neighborhood (which is primarily Moroccan immigrants). On Fridays they have the best couscous lunches. Their tagine is amazing too. Also downtown there is this divine burger place… great. Now I’m hungry. :-/
I don’t get out a lot anyway, but I miss chicken and waffles from Pig and a Jelly Jar, and the chili verde and onion rings at No Frills Diner. I am not certain of the Pig is even open, very much a hole in the wall place. No Frills is doing take out, but they are across town and I do not drive. Delivery would suck, onion rings are best fresh. I used to have Chinese food delivered about one a month, a treat, but China Star has closed. Most of the local Chinese places are closed, which is sad.
I did order local chocolates online, and coffee from Kauai. The hot sauce guy was kind enough to bring an order right to my door. I ordered some jams and chutney online, and am looking at Etsy offerings. My nephew had me order flowers and chocolates for his wife for Mothers Day, because she keeps too close on eye on the credit card to surprise her. I even ordered flowers for myself for May Day. Trying my best to support the economy!
I miss our Chinese buffet. 🙁 Most of the other stuff, we can get take out.
Do you remember that mustard/butter wing recipe Drea talked about? That might be a good one to try out for some of those wings.
Here’s one that is mainly for legs but I bet it would be just as good for wings: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/spicy-roasted-chicken-legs-recipe-2074738 You could always add more spice.
I’m almost back to 100%. Once it’s safe for me to be around her, I’ll pop down for a mom visit. Both our states are slowly opening up.
Here’s an interesting story: https://dailycaller.com/2020/04/30/illinois-governor-jb-pritzker-wife-family-stay-at-home-order-florida-reporter-question/
It was in the Financial Times about 20 years ago that I read an article where a fundamental analyst challenged any Technical Analyst to predict the plot of the right side of a historic price chart. Nobody took the challenge. Technical Analysis creates a great story for people to follow but there seems to be little evidence that it is stating anything more than obvious human behaviour (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technical_analysis#Empirical_evidence).
