    Market trading on technicals!

    Straddle makes a lot of sense today - challenge to find decent buy-ins (and sells) on each side. Good luck!

    The entertaining part is the contrasting comments from competing talking heads who have the business objective of capturing ears and eyeballs.

    Following the -20% debacle in 1987 I recall one somewhat honest pundit predicted "The market will go up or down, unless it stays the same."

    I do believe it is time to add for long-term holdings, but a bite at a time - not all at once.
