    I covered a small part of my shares on the early morning dip below 141. Near the end of the day I re-shorted a smaller amount than I'd covered. I also started a put position. After hours I decided to exit the really small odd lot I'd re-shorted late in the day. When I posted buy to cover that odd lot of only 50 shares, in between the bid and ask and where an ask had appeared briefly, immediately there was a bid one penney higher. I removed my order and the bid a penny higher disappeared also. A few minutes ago, I put in a bid for that small 50 share odd lot for 144, even though it's better to wait until Monday. I just wanted to even out the position. My bid didn't even show up. Thus, a seller would be selling for 143. 59 (or was it 143.56?) couldn't sell at 144 even though I was willing to buy to cover that small amount at 144. Since I shorted some shares much higher, I'd still have a profit covering at the ask, but I'd prefer to wait until next week and may even keep that extra 50 shares with the rest of my position.

    However, this incident, along with many others, suggest that trade here hasn't been market driven.

    Also, that Motley Fool video on the summary page is interesting.

    Next week it will be time for CRM to follow the correction paths that AAPL and AMZN have taken.
