    I think we're going to test new highs.

    Hard to believe with oil, katrina, economy etc but I think we stand a good chance and then its up to seeing how hard the squeeze is whether we break into new uptrends.

    Trading wise == bullish, real life == majorily bearish.

    Trading is so funny.
     
  2. Yeah!
    (as long as you don't have to ask at ET's to go long? or short?)
     
  3. ===================
    Thats actually quite typical ,
    of good bull markets/shrugs off bad news;
    reguardless, OCT teck stocks tend to downmove notably:cool:

    And even though it didnt happen last OCT;
    still tends to be a good pattern,
    OCT tek stocks usually dip so much =good buy.:D

    The market has yet to discount the possibility of a recession caused by a sticker shock at the gas pump. I almost drove off the road when I saw the price of regular unleaded at a local gas station - $3.31/gallon. The gas station was nearly empty, and the roads appeared to be half deserted.

    If rattled consumers stop driving their SUV's from one megamall to another chasing cheap chinese-made stuff like there were tomorrow, the US economy may cave in along with the stock market. All bets are off if there is a shortage of gas.

    Yesterday, I took some chips off the table reducing my exposure by a third. I am looking for a Labor Day rally to unload half of what is left.

  8. I'm sure you've heard the saying...

    "the markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain liquid"

    Just a thought...
