AS I SEE IT: This light volume day was not very impressive after the rally in the market yesterday. The S&P has turned up, so prices should rally from here if this move is for real.

The E-mini S&P gave me three good trades today using the Soaring Phoenix Market Trading Strategies even though the price range was very small. The Oil, Gold and Grain futures markets were also very good for day-traders today.
