    Nice shorting opportunity, near the top of the trading range and into continuing weakening fundamentals...

    Today's rally is largely based on marginal news (JPM,China,PPI) that is not as bad as it could have been, with very low volume, and not something to get all that excited about! Indexes should give back at least half their gains by the close ... the rest on Monday.

    Just making sure the numbers are in the right place for next weeks options close. Just buttering up the bread and sqeezing the shorts.
