I sense that this wasn't it, but that we're pretty close. Those were two pretty spectacular rallies fed by people waiting to go bargain hunting -- showing the pent-up money waiting on the sidelines to buy with a vengeance. And the subsequent selloffs, while indicative (often) of not having the bottom just yet, the decreasing ferocity of the selloffs -- especially given the relative mildness of the closing bell sell off -- suggest to me that most of the determined sellers are done. The huge waves of selling looked fatigued.

Then again, maybe I'm FOS and talking out my butt. Could be!

It's terrible when you get excited about it "only" being down 1%.

How do you know it's a "he"? I can't imagine two rhinos trying to reproduce. Ouch.

Ugh, I need to go back to the fitness forums
