Three days in a row for the bulls, impressive. The volume was about 15% higher than the 3 month average too. I like volume, always have, it needs way more though if this can be considered “real.” I had a nice day with longs in BGU and ISRG but took a small loss in FAZ near the end of the day as I tried to pick a near term top in the financials, maybe tomorrow. The S&P is now up about 13% low off the 666 figure that we printed last week. Lucifer must have got long some OEX at that level.
The ECB said they will consider quantitative easing and Bernanke is evidently going on 60 Minutes on Sunday evening. Let’s hope he doesn’t fumble like he did with Maria Bartiromo that time. I may have to be a little net short on Friday.
Madoff went to court today and claimed “it was me and only me”, when in the history of humankind has any crook ever said it was only me? You only say that when you are protecting someone else, unless of course you think Bernie has had an epiphany and is now a good guy and is telling the truth. When the story first broke, I asked where the accountants were, this is a bee’s nest, so stay tuned.
The S&P closed right on 750 and will be fascinating to see where we go from here. I could make a good case either way, but I’ll just wait for Mother Market to make the next move.
