This is just like spring of 96. Market down, good new bad new scenerio. March 8 96, China test fires ballistic missiles two weeks before Taiwans first elections, emplyment data comes out, 700,000 new jobs, bonds are down limit at the market open, big selloff that friday, I think 2 circuit breakers hit. Look at the historical chart and you would never know it happened if you were not trading then. I posted before this is a lot like that time period. Rapid attnetion paid to news and development of "sunspots" as market has been locked in equilibrium.
