Virtual Office, $5317. Dow, -306.95, 12,159.21.

Sanglucci, $2460 on 31,000 shares traded.
Evolution, $1532 on 67,400 shares traded.
Me, $1235 on 47,000 shares traded.
OBAT, $134 on 13,200 shares traded.
Akalawoo, $58 on 1 contract traded.
Misstrade, $0 on 2500 shares traded.
Retardo, no trades.
Wincity, no trades.
Denarii, -$52 on 1200 shares traded.


I'd be crazy to call a bottom, but I'll say that we're close to at least a short term bottom. The last hour of trade saw huge volume and capitulation like selling.

Question is, who the hell wants to buy here?

Anyway, we traded about 2.2 billion shares on the NYSE today. The VIX finally caught up with the action, skyrocketing 4 points up to 28.41. The fear is here.

As for the VO, it was pretty quiet concerning all the amazing action. I guess it was a day for the prop traders.

Short post. I'm shot, and on babysitting duty.

Yeah, RC, I'm happy I made some money.

MOS trading up a point AH... Anything can happen between now and the open though. Good luck, BD. I hope it treats you better than GAIA. I guess it's a tough environment to be buying any stock. Just look at FSLR!

Thanks, guys. I bought MOS on a bounce at $79.50. It's at $82 after hours. I'll probably get knifed tomorrow, though.
