@theMarket: Markets Retrace December Losses
By Bill Schmick,
09:04AM / Saturday, January 19, 2019
It was a week where lackluster earnings battled with the Fed's willingness to hold off on rate hikes for investors' attention. The Fed won. Investors bought on the dips and helped to push the markets out of correction territory.   From a technical point of view, however, all the U.S. indexes are overbought, extended, and in need of some kind of pullback. Traders know this and have been shorting the market as it climbs, betting that we will see at least a 100-point decline in the S&P 500 Index. It hasn't happened — yet.   Normally, markets will do what is most inconvenient for the greatest number of traders.   In this case, the indexes simply keep going

'Green Book': Because Look Out Old Macky's Back
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:43PM / Friday, January 18, 2019
There it was, the perfect opportunity I thought I wanted — staring me right in the face. A quadruple bypass procured the day after Thanksgiving 2018 can have that effect on a film critic.   What more reason could I conjure to call it a career, to be done with this movie reviewing stuff and finally retire to that long-fabled cabin on the lake in Vermont where I would idyllically pen those 36 essays and short stories with which I had been threatening the world of belles-lettres lo these many years?   But then the words of professor Halberstadter, my mentor back at Olde Ivy Film Criticism College, slowly interceded.    "Always remember the oath you took,
