Volatility Spike: Real or Memorex (again)?

Here’s the weekly view. It does not look like the end of the world, does it?

I don’t want to be flippant in the face of the market because a) it has already ripped me a new one this week (to the extent I am in, which was not much of an extent) and b) I am the guy with the potential Q4 top projection hanging out there, after all.

I am leaning against my projection and think this is a routine and healthy market pullback (parameters noted in an update). But the market will actually decide that. I think I have some pretty good short and long-term tools that will keep us right after this shakes out.
