Oh Man ... this is too funny. I'm playing the exact opposite. I've been long MS since Dec, for an almost double. For Goldman, I'm looking at some puts if GS goes higher. For the long term, I'm less bearish on MS and more bearish on GS.

I think anyone playing these stocks is gambling. If the market holds up for the next few days, then I'll be All in for a major bull run to 9000-10000. The probability has come down significantly for retesting the Nov lows. Friday was a good opportunity for the bears to do it.

Then maybe DOW to 7500 again by summer. Buy on the Dip, I don't see the Dow hitting 6000 in the short term, it will take a longer time horizon for that to happen (assuming the economy continues to deteriorate).

Both FCX and X are buy/hold if they come down lower, both stocks have very good balance sheets and are undervalued (especially X).

Good luck!

If support is broken between 795-800, then we will most likely re-test the lows. I still think it's unlikely, and I'm buying on these dips, (with close stops of course).
