As you can see from the charts, I unleashed my proprietary algorithms and was able to trigger an orgy of buying! Some our billing today as a successful retest of the lows---the fullness of time. And perhaps the fullness of the moon has contributed to such mischief!
But the market will always surprise the most number of people! There was a treasury auction and that was not terribly successful. Perhaps the bubble in bonds is conflating a bit, and money is moving into a a very oversold market.
At any rate, these moves appear to trigger stop losses (for both the longs and the shorts), and the result is: mayhem.
I did a little "Custer" trade. WCG, a stock that I've been watching, had a major meltdown. I almost bought it at $19 or so. Well, I thought that it was a real bargain an 11.12, and when it went down to six and change I thought....well, ....best left unsaid! But it recovered, and my position was small. I'm still holding.
