Thought the selling had peaked, but the buyers seem hesitant - maybe the tide is starting to turn now.

They literally waited to the last minute - just like those demon ebay snipers - the likes of which I might have personally had a midicum of a vague semblance to - once upon a time.

What's a midicum?  Well - the 'I' and the 'O' are adjacent on the keyboard and I'm a blind old bat with poor motor skills - so...

Is that it - the rally is now saved and back on course?  Hard to imagine the Qs could just pick up and dust themselves off from that decline.  I'll be staring dumbfounded as usual while they plow ahead to 400 and beyond.

Good luck at drawing or choosing 'the' meaningful trendline.

Really difficult to be LONG this market but another plunge near to ES 4400 will entice me.

Getting interesting fills today, starting a short build at 4492...

OCTOBER CALLS
WILL SELL some when it goes up
Want to build a large position, hedge partially, depending on what it does from now to mid September. It may rally to new ATHs

NVDA now back to testing the 400 level. Will buy CALLS if traded below 400
Looking to buy CALLS in some other TECH stocks ... but not AAPL unless below 170

Date?
