HEY John-

I bought FSLR today 30min before close! up 10 point from where i bought. Renewable energy bill passes and granted $17billion tax credit where solar benefit the most. FSLR close well off the lows today. Any chance the stock hit bottom with todays action where the stock close well off the lows!

i thought he was going to breakdown and cry at one point. That one little segment in time where he got real with everyone.

I think we might get a very slight gap down, but also believe the market will be heading higher, minus BAC. I do have vested interest as I am 100% long for the next 1-2 days.

Thinking about SHORTING bank of America right at the open what do you think JOHN?

hmmm...I generally do not recommend that kind of action. The first 30 mins of the day are the most erratic and violent. The only time I put in orders at the open is if I'm covering into weakness or selling into strength.

If you are thinking about doing that, do it in small lots -- don't put your entire order in all at once. This will test the waters, 1) if you're wrong, you lost little, 2) if you're right, you can always add on more.

Again, analyze the risks, for example, we could get a major intra-day rally in the morning, or BAC will gap down 10% and attempt to fill the gap at the open. The first 15-20 mins will determine that.
