Maybe our Con-gress (as opposed to Pro-gress) should stop using the term "Party" for their groups- to be taken more seriously! Kicking the bottles down the road - gov't shutdown delayed till Nov.5, Dec.11 gov't spending deadline, Repubs looking for a leader, Fed hiking rates...

  Nice snapback rally (shortcovering?) so far - even today, following the strong breadth of last week- 9:1 advances over declines, although the high McClellan Oscillator was overbought. Insider selling was large after a quiet Fall.
