Looking Forward To This Week

Normally, I'm not chomping at the bit to get back to work... I'm a pretty lazy guy when it gets right down to it. I like to spend time with my hobbies and my family, not working.

However, I can't wait to see how things unfold this coming week. There is so much drama to the market right now. It's a great story to watch unfold and to be actively involved (trading) in the story makes it even more gripping.

I woke up at 4:30am Saturday morning all amped because I thought it was a work day. No kidding. I can't recall the last time that happened.

The downside of all this market volatility and intrigue is that I may have to put off our planned vacation by a few days. I just can't step away from the market right now.

Anyway, here is February's decline as reported on CNBC. By the way, the uptick rule was taken off the books in July. So we were getting weird swings well before this recent volatility. Hmmmm... the Hybrid Market went live in December though... coincidence?

Oh, and just for perspective, even if we drop 1000 points on the Dow tomorrow, we'd still be above the lows of February.
