The volume in the market really seems to have settled in to a norm. Every day it seems we're trading between 1.4 and 1.5 billion on the NYSE. In a way, I like the consistent volume. I wonder how long this will keep up.

As I posted earlier, the FRE and FNM news really spiked the market midday. Many traders in my office just cleaned up with those trades. Congrats to those who were able to take advantage of that volatility. And speaking of volatility, we got a bounce in the VIX today, up .82 to 22.72.

The VO had a crappy day, but no disasters, so no real problem. Update: Ducati did well...

Finally, everyone hates Gasparino as he's ruined trade in the last hour of the day. You can pretty much count on an irrational spike when he starts to talk. What a mess...

NOTE: Daily post will either be late or non-existent... I'm going out to dinner with the missus. We have a babysitter...

Ducati is off to a nice start!


Stocks like that trade in loose correlation to each other. Can't always guarantee lockstep.
