            Mkt is about to enter a "feel like a kid in a candy store" phase where many stocks will become quite attractive.

                After blowing up the biggest bubble in history, the Walstreeters must be working on some new major debacle. I wonder what they are up to now

                            I bit a slice of AAPL today at around 450. I know it's a falling knife so it was a small bite.

                                Trimmed down some positions today: F, IWM. F looks technically extended here. Fundamentally it is still cheap stock.

                                    My bet for the fiscal cliff: all tax cuts extended, all spending cuts postponed. Can kicked down the road. Bullish for economy and market.

                                        Stock market acts as if fiscal cliff deal is certainty. Intrade odds deal to happen before Jan 1: 9%. Who is right?

                                                Market makes a feeble attempt for a closing mini-rally. No much conviction though.

                                                            Will AAPL fall through the long-term support around $520 or will find again a floor here?
