The real office got smoked today. The morning was a chopfest, the afternoon was a chopfest... there were only a few good times to trade today. If you had the discipline to identify those times, and not trade during the chop, you could have made money.

The VIX is dropping out of the sky... it's now down below 22.

Meanwhile, volume was strong in the early going and tailed off in the second half of the day.

Gasparino tried his best to spike the market in the afternoon, but all he did was throw an "ass rape" candle on the futures at around 3:25. It seems that's when he talks every day... I now will watch that time like I watch other economic news, because you never know what the fuck he's going to say.

Gasparino is pissing me off now too.
I hear CNBC is going to put him on air and now its like, shit I better be flat before that guy comes on. This is exactly what type of reaction CNBC and the big boys want.

I love what "the Fly" says about him, that he's "tired looking."

He's also turned into a huge argumentative shithead on air.
