    Futures up strongly as the dollar is very weak against the euro.  Across the board from the banks to transports to the small caps to the indices on daily / monthly charts things are looking rather bullish.

    The first full trading week of this new year closed upward. This could bode well for the rest of this trading year.


    We can only hope.

    Thanks Artman for your “colorful” post!  Anyone realize in a few weeks we have NO Fed Chairman.  Kohn will step in while either Bernanke is confirmed or someone else brought in.  Right now Congress is not moving on a vote to renew a term that ends in a few weeks.  Markets hate uncertainty and that’s a lot of uncertainty.  Amazing how directionless our “leaders” are….

    Well this market is crazy this week.

    Had to bailout given the sharp drop.  Will need to stay out for the rest of the week.  Hope to buy back in the mid 205 if we get there.

    You’re amazed? Remind me to pass out “I voted for Stupid” buttons to get the word out next election.

    In other news F rocked all the awards in Detroit and kicked over $12.00 a share and I’ve just been informed that Minnesota is colder than Siberia.

    low volume options related activity.  Stuff we can’t control nor totally understand.  This proceeds earnings and a tablet launch and we knew it would come - well here it is… Enjoy for a few days possibly a week (ouch)....

    Thanks for the reply. Any downside targets? Wouldn’t mind buying some more to increase my long position as close to $200 as possible.

    Disclaimer: I was one of many that bought in the 80’s & 90’s but sold around the 120’s because I convinced (through no TA whatsoever) that there would be a reversal. Waited until the 180’s to get back in.

    Doh…

    It’s impossible to predict but common for the big hedge funds to swing this down then load up.  My theory is you buy a little more as it goes down, I bought some Feb calls today with the stock in the high 208s.  Options Expiration is this Friday.  If it goes into the 207s I’ll buy more.  I think we’re too close to earnings and the islate launch to see a big drop into the very low 200s.  but we’ll see.

    Following your lead, bought 20x calls (Feb) $210.  Don’t let me down.
