As far as my winning. I'm consistent.
45W and 8L is my worst month, and that was last OCT--I kept trying to guess the bottom.

RTP and BHP Billiton are whipping in the aussie market tonight. No idea what spurred such rise.

Be careful with X tomorrow.

botd, we rolling the ms feb puts to march?
damn geitner

It seems like the bulls are trying to start another rally ?? Geithner and "Bad Banks" is something the bulls can use. Watch out for the Fed, could give Geitner an extra boost. I wouldn't be shorting anything right now. I switched all short positions to LONG right before Geithner was sworn in. Strong support on the dow at 8000, and it doesn't look the bears want to bring her down below that for the time being.

CNBC puts Roubini on front page for today's headlines. I take that as a contrarian indicator. We may have a major rally today.
