    Good Morning,

    A high volatility blow off day. US Markets soft in the important Last Hour. News Corp on Bigcharts off around 22-23c for the ADR

    Bad reaction in Europe especially to OPEC's intent to reduce output 900,000 BBL daily ....... German DAX has dropped 10% in four days !

    The old VIX now VXO, shot parabolically upward at 1130hrs NYT in a large white candle, easily the biggest in three months now on the old measure ... see $VXO on Stockcharts.com, and new code for the old VIX is now VXO on Bigcharts.com



    Nasdaq specs getting chewed
    Island 100 list


    NEM and gold doing well out of this
