    no, seriously.

    they put up their "look at continental, exploded when oil went <70".

    i looked, saw no other news, and a chart which sure looked stretched intraday. a couple different entries (edit: SHORT entries) over the next 20 minutes...

    and poof! it went back down.

    i would have missed it if not for cnbc.

    ok, i know that's not how they promote themselves. but this one trade makes up for listening to mindless political blather or "well, we won't settle this argument today in 3 minutes, can we have you both on another time?"
