Amazing rally in retail. Just amazing. We talked yesterday how it was absurd that Costco (COST) kept going down, or the dollar stores for that matter. Of course, in this market that's about all it takes.

At the same time, when the VIX got cracked and Apple (AAPL) said it would continue to raise its dividend things shot up higher.

To me what matters is that they cracked the VIX again and if we get a benign inflation number tomorrow I sense that the VIX will collapse some more as bond prices advance.

No one is going to trust a market that swings this much. We need to see smaller swings and a further dry up in VOL volume and I think we will be in a better place.

We just can't bless too much positivity given how erratic and thin everything seems to be.
