AS I SEE IT: The S&P gapped up on the open and continued higher to resistance before selling back below Friday’s close. The last two hours were spent rallying back up near the highs of the day. It is still trading below the up-channel lines for the second day in a row, so now we’ll see if it can trade up into that channel or continue lower.

The Oil futures were the big news today, as the July contract closed down 2.05 at 63.15 after being over 2.50 lower mid-day. The grains had good trading ranges today and they should continue tomorrow.
