we = my wife(nystateofmind) and myself -f16 is back at school -

i love the bank institution cmt fund -as if any of them could pull off our returns it would be a miracle -if i would ever become involved with any of those mike i would not be able to post here do to conflict areas i am sure - but the institution i find the funniest ,as many of us probably would be institutionalized as crazy as this market can drive 1 at times - heres my guess burried in this ramble of thoughts - november 3rd es 1349 -i am sure i made a mistake by not taking that 1464 shorting area -even with a 15 point stop on my 30 min es trade it seems quite safe at these levels , time will tell and thanks for the concern BigMike
