  2. No matter what the poll will show-sentiment is too bullish for a meaningful rally. Loads of people are stuck long and I must of heard 10 times today of how we can "rally 10% from here." We can rally 10% off of 1145 too....

  8. Are you performing any technical analysis on your trades? $20 for C was clearly too high. Are these long term trades (buy and hold)? Also, who is to say that you have to pick the ultimate bottom.

    Until we see what happens with student loans this semester, I really see no point in stocking up long term on financials.
  9. yep
