Bottom Line: The short-term chart presents two opposite possible outcomes, but the medium-term (stronger) time frame points toward a correction of modest duration; therefore, an upside breakout is unlikely to be sustained. The long-term (strongest) chart tells us that, regardless of how severe a correction we experience, the bull market will ultimately prevail

Regulators shuttered First Federal Bank of California, based in Santa Monica, with $6.1 billion in assets and $4.5 billion in deposits, as was as Imperial Capital Bank of La Jolla, Calif., with about $4 billion in assets and $2.8 billion in deposits.


First Federal in SM was a big player in socal liar loan/subprime mortgages.

Not anymore.

Well, experience is the best teacher, although that is usually far harsher than learning from instruction.

Here are some folks who learned something from experience that wasn't harsh. The big banks learned from experience that the taxpaer will bail them out of any fubar thing they do.

IF...we go down Monday

Question yet to be answered is if Wednesday's high on the spx is a lower swing high. Breaking the Dubai low might get the coaster in motion.

As for Dec. 16 being a potential lower swing high on the spx maybe rotation will come out of two latest high flying sectors

Transports Dec. 16 swing high?
http://www.StockShar..._1261261224.png

Utilities Dec. 14 swing high?
http://www.StockShar..._1261261318.png

or even the HMO's as a Dec. 16 swing high
