    Frank, Thanks for the intra-day updates. I just have a question, I can see where the market will probably move higher tomorrow. How does this fit into the next 5 session, going into options expiration, mo. end, and qtr. end?

    • JLD,

      I’ll check for options expiration tonight, but such a major down day like today (at time of writing) regularly provides at least a short-term edge on the then following session (the major market indexes regularly recoup some of its losses on the then following session).
