AS I SEE IT: The S&P started the day lower, rallied up a point and a half above resistance, and then sold off into the close. With interest rates creeping up almost daily and oil prices up near two dollars a barrel, this market held up very well again today. Options Expiration takes place tomorrow, so on Monday we’ll see if the market can continue to rally or if the overbought condition takes hold.

The markets are on the move so trading was very good in the E-mini S&P, Grains, Gold, and the Oil market today.
