    Bad day today for the world's financial markets

    The Dow briefly dipped below 10K right at the close...ended down 268 on sovreign debt news. All the European indices were down big too. Greece, Spain & Portugal all have heavy debt & are facing liquidity concerns. Some analysts are even predicting the UK's credit rating to be downgraded this year. All these countries have tried to spend their way out of recession...sound familiar??

    But if you watch the market and are a day trader you can make some extra cash on the recent swings.

    The market has needed a pullback in BIG way. We drifted higher nearly everyday since mid Nov to late Jan. This is the price that is paid for an extended run. This news has been known for a long time and the market had been a buyer of bad news for a while. CNBC tries to pin news to everything the market does. The fact is we'd been selling off on great earnings reports and news since Alcoa and Intel reported. Personally I think it's just a correction after 10+ months of heading up.

    Right now we're sitting on a trendline support area of the last 2 pullbacks. I believe we will head down to 1020-1035 on the S&P, and test the 200 Day (1020) or 23% retracement (1035) of the entire ralley since last March. Last year was a replay of 2003 and so far this looks like 2004 all over again.

    Personally, I'm expecting to be a buyer of the SPY at 102-103 via a 115 calendar spread. Long Jan 2011 115 calls and start shorting the March 115 calls and every following month as needed.

    Yeah, I could probably do that if I put some research into it...
    I always like the idea of easy money...

    No $ is easy. I trade stocks & options for a living...nothing like moving in & out of 6 figure trades alll day to raise your blood pressure. I actually welcome the volatility because it's damn hard to find trades when the markets don't move, but the reasons behind the volatility are F'n scary. I'm usually the eternal optimist because I believe the markets are more powerful than our gov't will ever be, but lately my faith is starting to waver with the amount of debt we're piling up.
