Today is a good day to buy some stocks on the cheap if you have been waiting.

i think US equities right now are a pretty shaky investment...i dunno why you would buy

not saying I'd sell either, just that there's going to be a lot of volitility in the near future and I'm not comfortable takign on a position

Care to elaborate? Some of them? Nearly all of them? Where did I specify only US equities? Multinationals are going back up after this mini-correction. I am referring to some short term traders right now and anyone who wants a long term position in some of the more solid US banks and a select few tech stocks. I even like the price of some of the retailers heading into the holiday season.



Now all that being said and asked; in my positions thread I have been concentrating on puts so on specific stocks I agree with you. I just bought MSFT $37.50 puts, made money on my GS puts and plan on buying puts on Google and buying December $110 calls on Garmin.

I increased my position in XMSR substantially and am planning on getting back into UA at any price under $58. Also would buy YHOO under $30.

would today be like an especially good day to put a load of money in a broad index?

Doesn't not selling pretty much equal buying? Other than transaction costs and taxes that is.

I would see if the S&P 500 holds above it's most recent resistance level. Personally I'm not a real index type person but there are some people on here that really follow them closely so I hope they chime in.
