Continuing to look for "leading" technical signals that pointed to the market's recent crash.  It's always interesting to see how the country's "best" investor did.  Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway had a couple of interesting jumps in its stock price during the period in question.  Comparing the percentage performance of BRK/B to $SPX, we can see two big jumps in 2007 (chart above) and one jump in 2008 (chart below).  Of course, not all jumps in BRK/B are signs of an impending crash - but these charts show that they shouldn't be ignored either.
