If the bears cannot even bring their act together with the help of Italy and France being downgraded, then this is a lost case

but on the other hand, the volume is really light, which means this market is easily being manipulated to the upside

That is the frustrating part for the shorts who are needed for effective capital markets.

Of course the more you push it higher the larger the eventual fall.

as for myself, i have made more money by writing options than by buying options. i have basically given up on buying options with your own money :P.. that's because lost all of it :P so now i fund the buying part with writing.

What do you think the targets are for 1) c of IV and 2) II of 3?


If wave (IV) of ED it needs the overlap below 1266.75 and should bottom in the area of the gap fill at 1257.68
If wave (II) of (3) anywhere in the range 1260-1238, maybe between the 200 and 50 dsma, but not larger then 64.69 points and time wise it should take less then 8 days

will be interesting to see what money flow was like today. but you have to wait until everything settles post close to get a confirmed figure. there was negative money flow on the DJ TSM float yesterday until things settled...then you saw it was actually a positive flow...

as of now DJ TSM float is a wopping -636...

but again, this could make a dramatic change after settlement.

I believe the "island" is disqualified because today's range has overlapped yesterdays. A gap is no longer present.

SPY is not going over $129.10 today. :) they might just close over 129 to screw all the call holders :) ...

CPC still low, so image how low the Normalized CPC could go tonight. I'm not worried about bears. There'll be a payback time. We'll see.

yes, the HF traders seem to spend the money from QE 1000 on buying the dips

so it is hopeless to be short until a real breakdown on decent volume is to be seen sometimes in the not so distant future

Semi's are weaker than the rest of the market, can sometimes lead on the downside and lag on the upside...
