Testing the Water, long SKF and EFU

As per my notes above, I need to be long this one. Citigroup raising more and more money, The people claiming the credit crisis as almost over will look back at the days of subprime as pleasant when the Alt-A/Prime pay option pay ARM fiasco gets some steam. I am getting long 1 unit of SKF at $99 with a stop at $91.74

The MSCI EAFE index ticker EFA is ralling into resistance. Call me a skeptic but with all the facts surrounding the global mess, equities seem to been anything but a bargain. That being said I will not stick around long enough for it to be fatal if I'm wrong. The risk reward seems to justify some exposure here.




I am getting long 2 units of EFU here at $76.20 with a stop at $71.72

I mistyped in the open positions section my stop on EAT it should have been reading $24.14 my apologies.


Good Speculating to you all.
