Thanks Jeff - it's funny how when things are going great, everyone hopes for a pullback that they can buy and then when the pullback happens, it always seems like capitalism is totally breaking down and no one wants to buy those dips.

Kass is very proactive - sometimes it works, sometimes not but there is something to be said for taking the variant side, if you are cash heavy and can manage your risk with position sizing and a bit of patience. Harry Schiller over on realmoney trades almost exclusively that way, buying sell-offs at key gaps down -- or vice-versa -- and then selling into strength later. He's one of the most consistent traders over there but I don't know how he did during the meltdown in '08 ... though he does have an 'uncle' point when he is wrong. I'm rambling ....
