The Market consolidated yesterday on light volume and you could see more
drift today. CFC turned out to be a great short as it went down all day.CFC
is down $0.50 in early trade and could continue to drift lower as they
have given away the store.
WFT, RIG, and GSF led the OIH higher and should be bought on any weakness
IBM was also very strong and can be bought on any early weakness.
Durable Goods orders were much better than expected but seem to have no
effect on the futures.
Oct Crude can not seem to get above $70, so it should be a good short
unless it trades above $70 for more than one hour.
