Look, I'm just as confused as you are... and if my "proprietary market research" on who you are is correct, that means I'm pretty fucking confused.

In the last year, we've witnessed a few instances of these completely low volume huge rallies... after last February, after last August, and now. It's like, for months at a time the sellers take off to go visit sex clubs in Thailand, or something.

We rip on low volume, and then the sellers come back and we tank on high volume... wash... rinse... repeat.

Could I pin this on the hybrid market somehow? The inverse ETFs? The uptick rule?

All I know, is that the derided "degenerate OTB guys" that "the Fly" bashes on, are eating his cake right now.

Also, and this is unrelated to the market, I did a little experiment today. Over on Timmay's blog, I linked my "The Bookstore Monster" post with the words, "hot, eager, naked college chicks" and got at least 11 hits.

Anyway, I'll have an extensive daily post up later tonight... I have some shit to go over, because I should have made ten grand today.

OTB means "Off Track Betting."

If someone calls you an "OTB guy" he didn't mean it as a compliment.
