Well it was a wild one.

Ben "the beard" Bernanke did not disappoint the markets, cutting 50bp in the FED funds rate and another 50 at the discount window. And the market completely ripped on the good news.

Until it sold off like a motherfucker.

Volume was dead all day but took off after 2:15. The close today was amazing... financial stocks got completely crushed.

The VO did well. Not one red trader today... always a nice way to end the day.

I, for one, am very happy the FED is now behind us. Time to start trading again!
