Shock and Awe

That is how this show is run now.

Spent the wee hours analyzing the upcoming Q4 2011 earnings calendar.

Interesting.

I calendared about 75 of the SnP500 I trade and Jan 23 is Numero Uno on the hitlist. 

Interesting.

The day before the FOMC meet starts.

I bet that Q4 suffers more than Q3 but the FOMC does nothing.  No announcement of nothing.

Europe on the back burner.  We see 1300+.

I was on track in my Oct 25 blog and then got sidetracked for Thurs Oct 27 when it spiked, I got spooked.

Remember, it is all managed.
