    Tonight I’ll try to watch the perseid motor shower we’re supposed to get, with my iPad 2 in hands and the Star walker app open (the app in the commercial where you see the stars in the sky). Supposed to be around 2:00 AM eastern time.

    Perseid meteor shower competes with fool moon on friday

    Hey iPad (or anyone else), what’s the next key S&P resistant / support levels we are playing in? Are we in a range?

    Levels after that?

    Thxs

    Edit;  Is it 1100 - 1200?

    My bro is bringing over some home craft brew. At the cost of his brewing HW (~$15K) each glass has an NRE of something North of $50. Have to drink a lot to bring down that NRE/glass #.  :wink:

    Bullish over 1190—-> target 1200-1220
    Bearish under 1170—-> target 1100-1120

    Not looking beyond that at the moment because too much changes daily.

    Excellent taste Lovey, for a “house wine”.  Have enjoyed several glasses of the same label while drifting away on the back porch after a long week….ahhhhhhh. Oh rats, its still 4:30 here on the west coast. rolleyes

    Hark!  There’s an intruder in our midst!  I think he mugged Mercel and stole his E, replacing it with an A!

    Be on the look out!!!


    EDIT: I should have known that acquiescence to keeping-an-open-mind business came a wee bit too easily this morning…  Would the REAL Mercel capitulate so easily?!  Be, even, dare I say it…?  Sweet?!  Suspicious, I tell you…suspicious! 

    :D

    Kahlua on the rocks here. 

    I liked seeing today’s afternoon action, seemed almost too normal.  Basically, we could have all just fallen asleep on Sunday, and return tomorrow, and we would be roughly at the same point in our portfolios.  I personally didn’t make any money this week, just shifted a few short term Oct11 spreads to Jan12 for a small loss.
