Hey folks. Futures gapping down pretty nicely -1% across the board. Europe getting taken down also wiht -1% across the board.E xpect a sell off into the morning. Whether it continues is anyones guess. The price action will tell us. The GDP report was slightly weaker than expected. I am not of certain that really mattes as I dont know of a single person that thinks or feels this economy is growing at 3%. GDP has a hundred variables. We’ve seen it fly up just from inventory restocking before so take it all with a grain of salt. the price action will tell us if this dip gets worse. As you know we are still in bear market trading. Cash levels of 50% are best. Daytrading, scalps are less riskier in this environment.
Key levels to watch $spy 108-108.37 there are multiple levels of support from spy 108 down to 104 so it wont be an easy path to break the market down.
Beware of reversal today as often these days serve as a catalyst for a market takedown in the morning and then aggressive buying steps in later.
The watchlist from the videos the other day is still intact. Remember in the focus list stocks to look for low volume orderly pullbacks to support.

2010 estimates now range around $2.3 leaving the stock at 4.8x eps. With over $2 in net cash, TER has an Enterprise Value of just $9 or a meager sub 4x eps. Would it be crazy for the valuation to triple to 12?
