Numbers I'm using on Thursday

1115.25 -1117

1108 - 1110 *********


1089 - 1091

1082 - 1084

let see if the reports and O/N can help refine these a bit
flat at 95.75...if I had one more I would try and hold for that triple in O/N.....but outta ammo...!! 96 was a key number but minor...!
Did anyone read about the CSCO halt. Appears the liquidity at the top of the book exhausted and some trades higher were questioned, but eventually let to stand. CSCO ended the day near the low if my screen correct. I'm not sure but the first release I read came about the time of the low today.

Another funny thing today. GS seemed to be the only bullish bank stock I watch. Read several that think it's going higher than today. I don't care but thought it interesting how it acted. Read there is a lockup period after earnings and that's why it's down recently? I'll watch it AM. Any red and it's a warning to me.

I bring these two things up because in the context of Friday, it might matter.

Did you note how the selling pressure lifted at the Europe close but the initial reaction was less than fast? End of month might not matter if they're selling prior to their August holiday period.Will be interesting to see AM before they close tomorrow.

I mention these things as anomolies. I defer to a chart but recognize what I consider could be manipulation, if one believes in such fantasies.

Some fed gov said today he's against anymore monetary support for the economy and the fed has done a good job. Sounds like a nail to me. Hope it's not the last?
