Have you noticed the New York Stock Exchange is instituting monumental technological change that is causing the floor population to fear for their jobs?

Computerized matching of orders has handled 97% of the trading volume of the stocks involved initially in the transition and the entire exchange listings is expected to be in the system by Dec 1st.

CAL advanced strongly on "earnings". The chart displays the higher high, lower low, higher high, lower low, higher high pattern known as an expanding formation which has often turned out to be an important top. Will it happen this time? Time will tell.
