15 to 20 looking like a good trading range for the VIX. 17.5 puts us right smack in the middle.

We need to see the dollar index start flying higher to shake the rest of the fluff out of the market. After a couple days of big dollar gains, it should be time to start leaning back into the market after the 6 or 7 week breather.

BKS was another big winner with the MSFT investment.

ETP probably made a good buy, just to get access to SUN's pipelines. They probably aren't paying much for the refineries who knows. I doubt they could build 7500 miles of pipelines for much less than $5.3 billion today. I don't know, but it works out to $700K per mile.

They could probably spin off the refineries if they didn't want to keep them. Maybe they could put them in their tax deferred MLP division. One way to improve spreads is to get rid of the taxes. I don't think any of the independent refineries make much sense in today's market. VLO and TSO should find some partners too.

KO says they are not buying MNST. Would be a great acquisition, but it's way outside the price range where KO could ever make the deal profitable at 10 times revenues.

Gas prices snuck in a 3 cent decline today to get back to $3.11 on the June contract.

Traders are going long nat gas and shorting gasoline right now. Boo, higher nat gas prices, Yeah, lower gasoline prices.
