Yep. Futures are down by 450 something. Black Monday. 600 point drop in the DOW is my guess. I am going to buy some puts at open and sell them later in the day. Maybe on Netflix, maybe on Amazon, or Chipotle, or perhaps Salesforce (they didn't drop on Friday).

I am still sitting on cash which I am planning to invest tomorrow.

I have never been any good at market timing; instead, I am just following my plan.

Weird...

AMLP was down 6% like a minute ago and now its only down .85%...

Flash crash?

If everything tanks and can stay down for at least another year I'm set.
