    A lot of the commodity complex opened at highs and now trading near lows (FCX, POT, OIH, PCXCQ.OB...)

        A near negative day wouldn't surprise me. Just looking for a mid-morning bump defense to keep SPY above 128.50 & CTL's above $56.

            A bit of an odd de-linking between SPY & IWM over the past 40 mins. IWM ~0.38% below highs while SPY barely off highs. Someone's wrong.

                A bit of a Frankenstein mkt today. Better jobless claims, dollar down, yet the risk-on trade in the QQQ's/tech is down.

                    A buyout is pretty much the only option for GOOG to get that high because the fundamental earnings story isn't strong. A bit of a crapshoot.

                        Roughly SPY 116.85 is next support level. A break through there opens door for possible eventual test of 115.75, etc...

                            A name like NFLX has had several rallies lasting ~2 weeks with ~20 point moves before any giveback. Let it exhaust itself before acting.

                                Buying Puts on a hot stock like POT hurts although stock holdings up > Puts down. A stock that's up $6 in 3 days can reverse on a dime.

                                    The only people hyperventilating are short. A test of SPY 113.20 (recent high) is likely. Back to buying dips as opposed to selling rips.

                                        A quick burst above 1106 which leads to a very late dive to end around 1100 is something I think is possible. Watching and waiting.

                                            Chinese PMIR is important to how this qtr starts off. A soft number is mostly priced in after the downward Leading Indicators revision

                                                GS acted well despite overall mkts and banks are up in after hrs. A def FinReg bill = real est. then P/E can be applied & can move higher

                                                    Have limit orders for stuff that I picked up late yesterday & near the lows today. A quick pop followed by a quick drop & then who knows

                                                        A lot of confident bears out today. Confidence breeds complacency. I've bought some Puts and some Calls today as I see risks on both sides.

                                                            A positive end to the market would be that it doesn't move in either direction more than 10 S&P pts in the last few minutes of trading.

                                                                A weak Euro will eventually draw foreign buyers into Spanish real estate. They overbuilt but that coast line is too attractive to stay empty
