Heading into the open there is some bearishness persisting – but not much, nonetheless, it is something that doesn’t seem to happen much these days – so I’m thrilled! My short stake is getting a little bit bigger these days with my largest position being in Yahoo (YHOO). As it stands right now, I am about 57% vested. I may look to add another position to the portfolio today if the bearish dynamics persist.

Outside of a Home Sales report that is due out this morning, you also have the Fed beginning their two-day meeting that concludes tomorrow with the FOMC Statement at 2:15pm.

Keep a clear head out there, the market is bound to continue it volatile behavior in the coming days – embrace it – it is where a lot of profits can be made.

In case I didn’t mention it before, my stop-loss in gold (GLD) has been raised to 117.53.
