I wonder if the light volume is because the boyz are waiting for the LEH settlement tomorrow. The banks are not following this "rally" (hence the light volume?). Tomorrow may be more upside before the next leg down. I think I'll await tomorrow before my first SDS purchase. I hate drawdowns.

could very well be. Never hurts to wait, as patience is an excellent virtue. Yes nobody likes drawdowns. continued speculating success to you.
