From the depths of the financial crisis comes THIS story about Meredith Whitney upgrading C to Hold. At least now I know why my puts are down. In 2008 markets hung on her every word about the financials. GS was down on a 200 point rally day! Which leaves MS on Friday as the last of the Kuchka. IBM and INTC fall after hours, they usually do but in this environment it may not amount to very much. TLT barely budges. And GLD cannot get out of its own way. Buying is not what I want to do amidst these cross-currents.
