In a shocking day, the range from high to low was 2.8 points [based on half-hourly sampling]. Perhaps the only day in the last 10 years, not a day removed from the holiday with such a low range. (Of the eight others, all were within a day of Labor Day, July 4th, President's Day, or Memorial Day et. al.). "Happy days," I can hear Stubby saying, "men and women and children, place your orders. It don't matter what you do, you lose when I take the other side."

    Your comments are greatly appreciated from one who used to spend half a day 12 hours studying the markets and working in them. Now as my life has taken a different path your genius and insights are enourmously helpful to me.

    wannabe from India brings some unusual sightings from this part of the world to MDP’s notice,

    1)first ever closing below 20 of VIX in India
    2) the 5 day range ( 5 day max- 5 day min )is the least in this decade on Nifty

    PS: MDP - Modern Day Polymath ( I prefer addressing MDP rather than Chair )

    The Chair has that very appropriate connotation of derision in it — but thanks, although not justified, albeit Artie was one. vic
