    Now may be a good time to dip a bit into the TVIX or VIXX & HDGE some bets. If XLF or KBE banks rally they will RUN. Can't see it with EUO

      : If the Euro banks are starting to freeze up their money markets & Merkel coming outright w/outlook for 2012 we trade on emotion. Not Logic

      : I know. I've been cost dollar averaging on BAC so I feel nice at 5.75. I think it goes to 7 but if EUO continues I hope to see support at 6
