Today was a real grinder.

We had solid volume as we traded close to 1.8 billion shares, but it was a battle. Every time the buyers tried to step in even a little, the sellers overwhelmed them and took the indexes just below the prior level. Then the buyers would have another go and the sellers would win again. Besides the open, there weren't any real dramatic moves one way or the other intraday, just a slow and steady trend down.

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Evolution has made a nice comeback from his New Year's hangover. It's great to see him pull up with a big one to end the week. Sanglucci and OBAT also had nice performances.

The rest of us kind of sucked. Especially me. I got pulled into most rallies today, and lost.

Anyway, have a great weekend.

Great Job Evo. Cal and Dal trending down all day. I almost bought CAL thinking it was due for a bounce. Glad I didn't.

Thanks HPT, I actually bought AMR once or twice during the day thinking the same thing, but it went nowhere.
