  2. yes. typical behavior before the selling starts.....

  3. The traders in the office was saying the same thing! I took a nap, and the others went for an extended lunch.

    I tried shorting the SPY this morning, but got run over, so I'm a bit tentitive of shorting the close. Market's feel like a slow grind up.

  4. there may be some action going into the close.

    30 minutes to go.

    Chicago Weather is just heavenly today - this may be the prettiest day of the ENTIRE year, not just the past 4months. I would not be surprised if it being Friday in addition to the glorious weather, traders just punted.

    I just got back from a bike ride and I am now going to put my top down, get a capuccino cheescake with a double expresso on an outdoor cafe with my family.


    nitro :cool:

  10. lol...and it's not hard to do that in the windy city either. Driving a tractor trailor in Chicago is even more fun, with all the unmarked low underpasses, it can become quite the challenge when you make a wrong turn and get lost during rush hour.:D
    Such is life.
