    Unless IRMA, RNK or parties unknown do dirty rotten things, my guess is that markets pull back to 2456 Fib pivot today or tomorrow and then rally on Opex Friday to around 2480. Absolutely nothing behind that BUT SPECULATION!

    But hey, you heard it here first..

    Futures are heading down fast this morning with Irma getting ready to hammer all of Florida. Hopes and prayers for all in harms way.

    Depending on action today, and what the storm does through Monday, assuming it peters out by Tuesday into a tropical depression, and the timing of the tax reform push, this could be a buying opportunity setting up (pssst... hey RF! You paying attention? )...

    Futures are up big, expected that this week, but not today :0/ At any rate, likely moving in today, any thoughts on an allocation? I is strong as the dollar weakens, but why is the dollar weakening and will it continue? Seasonality considerations? C fund stronger in the fall than S? I generally default to the S fund...

    A similar pop occurred the early in July, looking at the S-fund chart; if this move 'rhymes' we could run up to the most recent high...

    Easier decision for me. I bought S on 8/24, will be up 2.5% or so by today, so I went 100% G and will wait for the next downturn to rebuy. Just glad I had a repeat of the high on 9/1, when I couldn't make an IFT due to other things going on.

    Tom's commentary for 12 Sep is interesting regarding market performance on 9/11 and 9/12, so the buying opportunity may be Tuesday. Unfortunately I am on the road tomorrow and will not get an opportunity for a buy in, but that could be a good thing. So for the time being, I will hold my position on the lily pad.

    Good luck if you decide to take the plunge in the morning...

    SSDave, nice gain! As you said RF, could be an 'exhale' this morning but futures are up. Looking closely at the open gaps, may see if the market moves to close before making a call. It seems action stopped at resistance yesterday... we'll have to see if it breaks through with any determination.
