    Not a flash, but a response to a news event. In the current episode of the the "Cliff Hanger" series the House could not get enough votes for Plan B. So they are recessing and will be returning after Christmas.

    I was sitting at my machine starting on my taxes when the other screen had a huge spike down. The little extra I just made will help with the tax bill.

    Bad day tmrw. Fiscal cliff worries are gonna hurt the markets. No vote until after xmas. Lots of worried people are gonna go flat to protect gains. Cutting it close if they don't do anything until after 12/25.

  9. this is a non event. imho

    ....unless your long/short ES tonight lol

    Non-event? It looks like the recent run-up we've been having is based somewhat on early fiscal cliff resolution. Now that the rug has been pulled, traders are gonna protect their gains, especially year end.

    Do we retest the nightly lows? Be interesting to see tomorrow when real volume comes in.

    Russell has been particularly strong lately, I'm hoping for a big dump. :D
