    I have learned over the past 7yrs that I should never call anything a bull trap.

    Anybody want to make that call? :D

    correction?

    We are so used to low volatility that starting to consider a 3% drop as a correction. hahaha

    Back in the days..anything less than 5% is just a normal sell-off within the trading range. haha

    I'm a grinch. Fridays are not happy, especially since we've been building cars every Sunday. Friday is the start of 5 work days/nights in a row (Fri-Sun day shift, Mon-Tues night shift). Pardon my French, but fuck fridays.

    CNBC - We are correction territory.

    Oh please, I think everybody has forgotten what a correction is.

    Indeed. I have been trying to tell people this in the trading chatroom but they can't get themselves out of the BTFD mindset.

    They will be reminded soon enough. This is nothing. Not even remotely a correction.

    A correction would have us back below November lows.
