YM 880 short. Will hold it for a minute or two and see what happens. May have triggered it too soon. Getting flinchy.

Did that cause ES left unfinished biz at 42's. WIll hold this YM until ES cleans up the 42s'. Will hold the NQ's til 2245 area and take one off. Might add a second YM short there. Will see what it looks like when it gets there.

YeeeHa!!! ES is squeezing and the curve is bleeding as the Fed does the twist. Still very long, but what if Berlusconi disappears and is later photographed bouncing slavic hookers of his knee in some non-extradictable retirement home for deposed tyrants in the Emirates? Looks like I picked a bad day to stop sniffing glue!

rwhitt....just a suggestion that I hope you honor.

Many of us use the Trading Forum Chatbox to keep up with what people are doing throughout the day. So, each time you post to your journal and click on the submit button, we see a link to your post. At the present time there are 40 total posts in the Trading Forum Chatbox with 29 of them being your's. That overwhelming number of posts by you in your personal journal renders the Trading Forum Chatbox useless to the rest of us. So, my suggestion is that you not click on the Submit button until the end of your trading day. That would alleviate the problem we now have and still give you the journaling capability that you obviously want. Sure would be nice and considerate.

Thank you

Hey, you have been asked nicely to stop. Why don't you?

You are going to piss off the whole board and possibly end up getting banned...

I am sure you mean well, but you are rendering the chatbox updates useless.

Don't think I won't hunt you down!
