I have a curse of usually being too early. That said, it looks like in the last couple of days, the Euro has least for now. Fortunately, one of my rules is not to enter a position unless it's higher than the previous day (saved my a$$ Monday).

I recently read an article from a long-time technician who said that one of his favorite (and most predictable) set-ups is when a stock closes higher than the high of the day in which a recent (30 day?) low was established. Proves to be a fairly reliable short-term trend-reversal indicator. Oil and commodity stocks seem to trend stronger than other sectors. I'll see how things open next week. I'll be looking at UCO. Looks like it could move back up into the 12 area without a lot of strain.

One thing I can just about guarantee, the strength in the dollar is the equivalent of the Emporer's new clothes. When this gets widely accepted, you will see oil prices follow gold. Along the same lines, keep an eye out for eanings estimates to begin to be marked down because of the strong dollar. Tech companies particularly vulnerable.

Does it seem to anyone else that this Administration (in Washington) is more concerned about protecting the Civil Rights of Terrorists and Illegal Immigrants than protecting the welfare of it's Citizens??

Here's a side of the story which the mainstream media seems constantly to avoid telling the rest of the country.

From an Arizonan State Senator:

I'm Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen. I want to explain SB 1070 which I voted for and was just signed by Governor Jan Brewer.

Rancher Rob Krantz was murdered by the drug cartel on his ranch a month ago. I participated in a senate hearing two weeks ago on the border violence, here is just some of the highlights from those who testified.

The people who live within 60 to 80 miles of the Arizona/Mexico Border have for years been terrorized and have pleaded for help to stop the daily invasion of humans who cross their property. One Rancher testified that 300 to 1200 people a DAY come across his ranch vandalizing his property, stealing his vehicles and property, cutting down his fences, and leaving trash. In the last two years he has found 17 dead bodies and two Koran bibles.

Another rancher testified that daily drugs are brought across his ranch in a military operation. A point man with a machine gun goes in front, 1/2 mile behind are the guards fully armed, 1/2 mile behind them are the drugs, behind the drugs 1/2 mile are more guards. These people are violent and they will kill anyone who gets in the way. This was not the only rancher we heard that day that talked about the drug trains.

One man told of two illegals who came upon his property one shot in the back and the other in the arm by the drug runners who had forced them to carry the drugs and then shot them. Daily they listen to gunfire during the night it is not safe to leave his family alone on the ranch and they can't leave the ranch for fear of nothing being left when they come back.

The border patrol is not on the border. They have set up 60 miles away with check points that do nothing to stop the invasion. They are not allowed to use force in stopping anyone who is entering. They run around chasing them, if they get their hands on them then they can take them back across the border.

Federal prisons have over 35% illegals and 20% of Arizona prisons are filled with illegals. In the last few years 80% of our law enforcement that have been killed or wounded have been by an illegal. The majority of people coming now are people we need to be worried about. The ranchers told us that they have seen a change in the people coming they are not just those who are looking for work and a better life.

The Federal Government has refused for years to do anything to help the border states . We have been overrun and once they are here we have the burden of funding state services that they use. Education cost have been over a billion dollars. The healthcare cost billions of dollars. Our State is broke, $3.5 billion deficit and we have many serious decisions to make. One is that we do not have the money to care for any who are not here legally. It has to stop.

The border can be secured. We have the technology we have the ability to stop this invasion. We must know who is coming and they must come in an organized manner legally so that we can assimilate them into our population and protect the sovereignty of our country. We are a nation of laws. We have a responsibility to protect our citizens and to protect the integrity of our country and the government which we live under.

I would give amnesty today to many, but here is the problem, we dare not do this until the Border is secure. It will do no good to forgive them because thousands will come behind them and we will be overrun to the point that there will no longer be the United States of America but a North American Union of open borders. I ask you what form of government will we live under? How long will it be before we will be just like Mexico , Canada or any of the other Central American or South American countries? We have already lost our language, everything must be printed in Spanish also. We have already lost our history it is no longer taught in our schools. And we have lost our borders.

The media has distorted what SB 1070 will do. It is not going to set up a Nazi Germany . Are you kidding? The ACLU and the leftist courts will do everything to protect those who are here illegally, but it was an effort to try and stop illegals from setting up businesses, and employment, and receiving state services and give the ability to local law enforcement when there is probable cause like a traffic stop to determine if they are here legally. Federal law is very clear if you are here on a visa you must have your papers on you at all times. That is the law. In Arizona all you need to show you are a legal citizen is a driver license, MVD identification card, Native American Card, or a Military ID. This is what you need to vote, get a hunting license, etc.. So nothing new has been added to this law. No one is going to be stopped walking down the street etc... The Socialist who are in power in DC are angry because we dare try and do something and that something the Socialist wants us to do is just let them come. They want the "Transformation" to continue.

Maybe it is too late to save America . Maybe we are not worthy of freedom anymore. But as an elected official I must try to do what I can to protect our Constitutional Republic . Living in America is not a right just because you can walk across the border. Being an American is a responsibility and it comes by respecting and upholding the Constitution the law of our land which says what you must do to be a citizen of this country. Freedom is not free.

In the catch-a-falling-knife category, I'm looking at some USO calls. Oil prices have been compressed, not because of supply/demand fundamentals, but because internationally, oil is priced in dollars and the dollar has had a huge rally especially vs. the Euro. Some of the FX traders I follow say the Euro is THISCLOSE to major long-term support. Any release of pressure on the Euro coupled with historical seasonal strength in oil (almost always rising prices from here until lateJune/early July) and any perception of future supply constraints, due to the probability of increased government oversight of offshore drilling, make USO attractive for at least a short-term bounce.

The May 35's at just 66 cents are awfully tempting. Even if it just recovers what it lost today (3% or so) you would have a double...and yes they only have a five day life span. I'll see where this opens on Monday but I have a gut feeling I should have acted this afternoon. And, oh-yeah RSI(2) is just about zero.

Plan B might be a short May/long June calendar spread, perhaps on the 36 calls for a net debit of 82 cents. Oh well, we'll see.

Good luck everyone.

In my state (Illinois) on certain holidays, like New Years Eve, it's very common for police to set up numerous traffic stops where all drivers are stopped, asked for drivers licenses, vehicle registrations, proof of insurance and checked for DUI. Not very many complain about this "abuse of power" because it serves to make the roads safer.

I've spoken to some neighbors who spent the winter in Green Valley, Arizona - it's about 30 miles north of the border. There were occasions when they were very concerned for their safety and wouldn't venture outside the gated community where they had rented a house. In conversations they had with some of the full-time residents, there was a unanimous feeling that the illegal immigration problem was out of control.

I'm in agreement with a radio talk-show host who said "I don't mind if they come in but they should sign the guest register and we should keep track of them. By requiring some form of registration it at least gives us an opportunity to keep out the bad guys.

Thanks. As it turned out, I was a little early on FTO, After I bought, I watched it slide to within a dime of my stop before it recovered. It's likely to still be good for a couple of weeks (seasonal factors) but I wanted to cash the ticket before the weekend.

Big pharma acting well today. Dipped a toe into BMY with a few May 23 calls. Stock is close to support, just above the 200 day MA and RSI is bouncing up from a 13 month low. Short-term target - 25.50-26.00.

Out of FTO @13.77 (was in @ 13.22 a couple of days ago). One of my rules is that if you get 4% in a day (especially a Friday) you take it. Interesting how it started to turn up before an analyst upgrade????

Alcoa (AA) bouncing off 200 MA - RSI turning up. Could be good for 5-10%
