Another weak day for the dollar and upbeat economic news from China gave investors more reason to keep buying stocks. A drop in the dollar lifted gold and oil prices after Federal Reserve officials signaled that borrowing rates would remain low.

Let me tell you my line of thinking on this and...

I took the opposite approach and thought maybe the heard would all be wrong. I bet tomorrow they will be. UPDATE: I sold 1 covered call on my Klac stock. Should be able to cover it in the morning.
