It was a slow, low volume, low volatility day in the market. We traded just over 1.4 billion shares on the NYSE and the VIX dropped .78 to 22.90.

It's like, over the weekend, people forgot that the market is going to zero, and decided to come in and buy stocks today with very little conviction. This created a very wishy-washy type of day.

But despite the overall trading malaise, there were some ridiculous moves made in the Agricultural and Fertilizer sectors. These sectors just keep on giving volatility to stock traders.

Meanwhile, the VO basically got smoked. You'll find that in this type of trading environment that the cream really does rise to the top.

More on my "huge" day later...

Looks like Evolution over traded today.

You know, for fun, you should track the VO overall daily earnings/loss to see how it does.

Food for thought.

You can call it the VO Hedge Fund.

KC,

That's a great idea, really, however, I'm just not organized enough.

I think Moom keeps a spreadsheet. Perhaps if he's reading, he can post it sometime.
