Good Morning

Stocks quoted in this article:

As I noted Friday...our entire office made a big move over the weekend and I am now dealing with the aftermath. However, my internet access is restored and I have access to my quote system so I thought I should start the day. Things may be a bit sporadic this morning but I will do my best to stay on top of the day's action.

S&P futures are more or less near fair value so it looks like a flat open after Friday's selloff. Gold is down a point to 427.2. Oil is up 87 cents to 58.14.

Have a Nice Weekend

Stocks quoted in this article:

As I noted earlier...our office is shutting down early today so we can move our entire operation across town this weekend. I have just been notified that time is running short. Our network will be shut down shortly and I will lose access to the blog so it looks like this is my last post for the week...unfortunately. I will be back up and running sometime Monday morning....

... with the indices still searching for an intraday bottom. Major support still sits near 1160 on the SPX so there is some "wiggle room" here....

As I said, I would like to begin sharing information...even if I haven't figured out the optimal format. My initial thought is that I would like to post your emails as is, without any comments from me. Later on I may offer my own thoughts, but I don't want this to be interpreted as either criticism or endorsement. The idea here is to foster discussion and help you see other perspectives...

Alexander says - "I have been using your daily update on moves outside stocks volatility bands for some trades. Specifically, what I have done for the last two years is to buy select names that broke below their volatility bands and sell anything that breaks above. I especially favor indexes and when quite a few indexes appear such as today's list that has been a good buy signal."
