    What do you think about Fed meeting on this day. If they lower interest rate or left it as it is, I expect big swing in the market. What is your strategy, buy straddles?
  2. basis


    Wtf? Is Jack Hershey a babelfish bot?
  3. Gonna visit the Korean girls and get a good massage and a happy ending or two.
  4. LOL!
  5. Duck and Cover
  6. Go long.

  7. long ahead of the number with some downside put protection as a hedge.

    a) no change = no news. sell off 100 pts, comes back the next day. fluff.

    b) 25bps = mild support. really no change.

    c) 50 bps= dollar tanks, equities supported. (most unlikely scenario)

    I'll Buy if the market (ES) goes up or I'll sell it if the market goes down...:D

    I wonder if we'll get the normal 3 spikes rule (5min/3min chart) on the news release? First Spike is the true direction the second is the muppit fade and the final third is the lock and load back in the direction of the first spike.
