Virtual Office,$2480. Dow +96.41, 12,480.30.

Dehtrader, $1164 on 3600 shares traded.
Sanglucci, $556 on 51,600 shares traded.
Me, $513 on 7600 shares traded.
OBAT, $206 on 11,400 shares traded.
Wincity, $41 on 400 shares traded.
Retardo, no trades.

Volume is really screeching to a halt ahead of the FED meeting tomorrow. We traded about 1.5 billion shares today and the VIX fell. In other words, it was a potentially slow day for traders.

However, I'm not complaining about the volume and the VO did well. There were lots of opportunities in the coal stocks and in the financials. Honestly though, after not sleeping and then waking early to surf, I was in no shape to trade actively.

My brain felt like mush. Besides, I had an blog war to wage.

Who knows what happens tomorrow. I still think the cut last week was to support the plummeting market. That was a mistake. Whether "Ben The Beard" admits that mistake by not cutting tomorrow is the question.
