  • Excellent biotech column, David. Well done.

  • The metals act swelled, er, swell a day after gettin' beaten with an ugly stick. My first instinct is to point to the breakdown in the dollar but these moves seem relatively outsized.

  • The banks are retesting BKX 96 which "should" act as new resistance (it was former support).

  • I remain hopeful that Professor Weldon will soon make his Minyanville debut.

  • "I think we're going to be stacked. It's not about your position, it's about your disposition.

  • Earnings tomorrow are relatively quiet but General Electric (GE:NYSE) will take center stage on Friday.

  • Keep your eyes peeled for Fleck--he'll come rompin' through the 'Ville tonight.

  • The RTH (retail holders) broke the 200-day moving average recently but their stochastics are "hooking" at the bottom (bullish). I think traders are gonna see alotta these types of situations--levels vs. oscillators--as we edge forward into the second half.

  • Have a peaceful night.
