same store sales were poor and there is some negative news on MERILL and to a certain extent Lehman even though their are reports about them being aquired again. any trades should be short lived because i see alot of volitility(whip saws) today. MOST IMPORTANT however,is watch the market at about 2:30-3:00 . the big jobs report come's out tomorrow morning so traders will be positioning themselves for that report. personally i would look for a sell off around 3:00 .
