*I wouldn't make too much of this though. This is the catalyst they were all waiting for to get that 10% correction. Keep your eyes on the futures this evening. Tomorrow is Friday afterall. And next week there will be some bailout from the European Union to help prolong the inevitable. It will be 2008 all over again, mark my words. So cash and patience are king. The S&P 500 has only turned back at 33% so further on the downside is only a little leg. Watch for short covering Fri early and only a mild day. Sunday news will also be key.
