What I have learned or reminded of trading over the past couple of days

1. Investors are looking to dividends, safety, and liquidity in the stocks they buy.  Makes a lot of sense.  Investors are scared of companies that will have a hard time finding financing or have to pay high rates.  FITB a mid size bank just financed a billion dollars at an 8% rate.  That sounds a bit hard to profit taking a loan at that rate. They have single A credit.  That means that smaller size banks will have even harder time.  Bernanke said some banks will fail to function.  Mortgage markets are appearing to slow as rates offered increase over recent weeks

2.  Be patient, and try to get the best pricing on your trades.

3.  Investors and people have a hard time looking far into the future.
