Big down day in the US markets today as the trading desks flushed out their weaker positions and got ready to pump up Facebook tomorrow for what could work out to be the mother of pump and dump operations. I do not expect the fat lady to sing tomorrow, but I think she will start warming up for what could be remembered in a few years as the end of an era, a watershed event.
Let's see what happens. I do not expect a down day in the stock markets tomorrow but I could be wrong. Equities are short term oversold.
Tomorrow is also an options expiration.
