  1. Then we'll get to see a long-needed selloff instead of this inexplicable upward drift each afternoon. Seriously, I see more and more headlines about this but I don't think they know what they're asking for...
     
  2. What I'm noticing is a pattern where on Fridays out of the money options are being bid up. There's always a little bit of this, but lately it seems to be more pronounced. People are very nervous, it seems, about holding over a weekend.
    That says to me there's a lot of fear out there. The rise will continue until the fear is dissipated.
