The draconian (sucking the money out of our wallets) health care cost increases loom on the horizon and season lays ahead. The giant headwind of higher oil prices leaves the market in a vulnerable position - like Wile E. Coyote after he has run off of a cliff .

The stop will move down over time and the typical 3 times the 11-day average range is my intended risk-measurement yardstick.
