Thats a pretty large hammer on this chart. If you draw the lines on this chart, you can see a downtrending upper/lower trend line. This means to me that there will be plenty of good times in the short-term where shorts will be covering and scrambling. Im 75% certain that this is the bottom, but, if its not, then there will be one more painful and long down-trend sometime after this bounce is done. Probably will go down to 1150. I think the XLF has bottomed now. Now Robbie or Landis you can feel free to make your odd comments on this thread. Ivanovich, yes, this thread is actually about trading. No need to move to chit-chat.
