On and off in the stockmarket since 1969 . More or less full time since 1991 . Made lots of money in options trading in the 90s . I expect this stockmarket to receive a reality check very soon one which the NYSE board seems to be anticipating with its cct breakers set at 10% -30% for this quarter . Too many overheated bluechips have had their valuations raised as if we are in a boom period rather than the edge of a depression .
