The title of my article this week: -  was supposed to reflect the increasing Greed of stores to hold Holiday sales for most of the week, not just on Black Friday. My acronym - STUD, or Shop Till U Drop didn't intend to mean things like the Chicago shopping mall where a shopper shot his wife and killed himself at the mall!

 Last week set new highs for all indices yet again, despite the Friday selloff in stocks. Volume was down with the Holiday, but not in quality - the 2 handle in the ratio of NASDAQ to NYSE (speculative if high) broke to below 2 last week.Breadth was still positive - Advance/Declines and New highs/lows. Insider trading was not available (N/A) due to Thx, but gold rallied $50 today (Monday).

ETF monthly figures were out for Oct. with Stocks and Bond funds at new highs. Int'l stocks and Margin Interest fell. Here are the numbers:
