    Tyco CEO Out

    US equities are slightly higher in early trading on mixed corporate headlines. Tyco International's (TYC) CEO is resigning, while USA Interactive (USAI) is making a $4.5 billion offer to purchase three companies. US Treasuries are slightly lower ahead of the manufacturing PMI and construction spending figures, while world markets are mixed.

    A few problems came up that have kept me from trading this morning. I should have time to trade this afternoon.

    On "feeling" and watching L2 interest I think if I had traded my normal 2K size I would have covered this around 43.74 or 43.75. So I gave up approximately .02 - .03 increasing my share size to 5K which was still more profitbale to do so.... on this trade.

    Today was a great trading day in which I was unable to trade until the last part of the afternoon. Today's decline is very unsettling considering we just broke some major supports. I will get into more detail about that tonight or by market open tomorrow.
