Although GOOG-MMI tie-up is only good for MMI, it does somewhat calms the market.

Who would have known GOOG getting into hardware business?

You just love rhetorical questions... you and I both know that GOOG isn't getting into the hardware biz.

With the purchase of MMI, HTC, Samsung and LG will no longer have to pay Microsoft for $25 per android handset sold on open source OS

With that IP portfolio I think GOOG might be coming out ahead.

Just realized you were the one who posted the other thread in OT. D'oh.

Sure GOOG buying MMI is for the patents, but the fact that it owns 100% of MMI means GOOG is officially in the hardware business, UNLESS it plans to close down the shop and layoff everybody there except for the patent-dreamers.

HTC and Samsung are already paying MSFT, there's no way out for them, IMO.

Closed above 1200, 1250 is next. I was ready to pull the trigger on SDS (S&P500 ultrashort) if we didn't close above 1200.

You may need to keep adding short term I'm thinking up a bit before we turn back around again. We for sure will be turning back around again but I am not so sure if we do so this quickly.

Doesn't look like that level means anything... traders can always make up excuses to justify their moves, right or wrong.

Watch and learn, we're headed for 1250 next.

Bought some SDS at close, since we couldn't close about 1200. not that much though, I think we still go to 1250.

Sold my SDS, but no balls to go long, maybe at 1120.

Was begging my wife to sell her NTAP when it was in the high 50s. Oh well.

You should have just slapped your wife instead of begging her.

In my mind, that would be greedy, foolish or a bit of both. Why risk the gains that I've already made, which I worked hard for (research and risk wise)? There will be a time for FAS - it may well be tomorrow - but it's not worth the risk right now IMO. Plus, I'm still holding a significant position in YANG.

I have a good feeling Silver is about to pop from here. That $50 mark should be retested soon. SLV calls should pay well if all goes right. SPY puts are great as well these days. I was wrong about oil.

Rumor is of an emergency Fed meeting today, that's why stocks are up.
