Staying in the Turret
Looks like I picked the wrong time to get away from the office. I just cancelled a little time off, set to begin on Monday, and I am heartsick. But I am also a professional and professionals don't desert their turrets in times of crisis. This is, by the way, a real crisis.
On any other day I would be encouraged. But this kind of hammering has your head ringing and I can't tell whether there is just an absence of selling or something real going on.The last hour felt like someone or many people were going out of business. It would seem to me that if you were on margin you probably did get closed out whether you were an individual or an institution. I think we will discover that somebody big blew up and that's the selling we saw.
