AS I SEE IT: The Dow opened 100 points lower and sold off from there closing down 246.79 points, but the S&P held better on the day because it sold off after the Dow closed yesterday. Traders did sell the rallies again today but I thought the S&P toughed it out and held support fairly well. Traders I know think it is possible for the Fed to react in here someplace if this market continues to deteriorate.

After all the huff and puff for the week the S&P was only down 14.75 points. The 1400.00 area is support so I want to see how the market reacts off that level. Someplace in here I think the market will catch a bid and the reaction could be big even though the trend is lower.



Have as much fun trading as I do!
