In my last column I mentioned that the McClellan Oscillator was one of my favorite short term market direction Indicators - could (legal) Insider Selling be a longer term one? As I've noted recently there seems to be a huge lot of this selling, mostly by Board members and Officers - Monday it was revealed that Jeff Bezos has sold $1B of his stock, while Sheryl Sandberg sold half of hers!

And on this tax day word comes out that Nuveen Co. has been bought by the TIAA-CREF fund - I've been an investor in Nuveen Closed-End Funds for decades (depending on interest rates) for CA tax-free bonds. They were the pioneer in this area.

Finally, if you are up late celebrating your big tax return (or not) and cast a bleary eye at the moon - it is really Red tonight and early tomorrow - not your bloodshot eyes.

Have a Happy Easter!
