Well, really, not much to say. My only question: If you were thinking of moving to trading as a full-time profession a few months ago, are you still thinking the same thing now? Let me know.

On a different note, here's a plug for my friend, James O. Rohrbach. You might remember I mentioned James a few months ago because he publishes one of the few newsletters I take the time to read. James is a "market timer" and issues very straightforward signals as to when to get in and when to get out. His latest signal was a "sell" on Sept. 21, and from that close until midday Monday, the Dow was down 1.7% and Nasdaq was down 4.4%. Not too shabby, James.

For those interested, James can be reached at http://www.investment-models.com/ .

And, with that, a few charts:
