Pete Najarian said that volatility is returning to the markets as gold stocks and other commodities trade down.

On Wednesday's "Halftime Report" segment, Brian Kelly said the markets look like they have shrugged off the problems with Dubai and Greece. He thinks the bigger problems for the markets going into 2010 are if problems develop in Britain and Japan. He recommended playing this uncertainty by going long the dollar and short the
