What the heck is going on? Some of the craziest things I’ve ever seen have occurred this week. In France, a 30 year old at a bank traded over 7 and 1/2 billion dollars in losses. If thats not enough, he was able to hide it from the bank itself. NUTS. Absolute nuts.
I know a lot of people out there have watched their portfolios dwindle this new year. I managed to pull in about a 10% gain. I had been shorting the technology sector using Ultra Index ETFs, specifically REW. I sold on Wednesday, The market appeared to have some short term support. I am very much on the fence as to where we go from here…. Thursday may provide more questions than answers.
After frustratios over having to view the video and/or download a pdf file to view the winning numbers, here are the safeway numbers for each week of the giveaway. I think you need to match at least 6 sequential numbers, with the big prizes matching all 8. See www.safeway.com for details.

This Citibank card (found here) seems to have a great deal.
- 5% cash back at grocery, gas, and drugstores.
- 1% cash back everywhere else
- 1% cash back on cash withdrawls
A few restrctions apply to this card, as all. The max you can earn per year is $300. And, they only send checks in $100 increments. But still, it is nice to see a Master Card with cash back rewards as lucrative as this, especially since American Express and Discover Card aren’t accepted everywhere.
