        Two minutes ago (10:49) one of my positions on Scottrade vanishes. I check executions and it says it got stopped out just after the open.

                Stopped out of DD and CELG for small gain. Stil holding AAPL, close to getting stopped for nice gain from $379. Considering Cyc. Consumer.

                    Why do we care about potential downgrades by the same rating agencies who rubber stamped all those nasty CMOs a few years ago?

                                    Uneventful day. Sat on my hands while AAPL, CELG and DD did a little work for me. Slow and steady.

                                            Continue to reap small rewards for getting back into AAPL in the 370s. Otherwise uneventful. Continued hesitation about V, GE.
