AS I SEE IT: The S&P opened a little lower this morning, but after the first hour’s trading it moved higher in a perfect channel until mid-day. The last two hours of trading brought it back down about 6 points from the high. The daily S&P chart shows that the trendline off the recent highs proved to be resistance today. The short, intermediate, and long term charts are still in a buy zone using Soaring Phoenix Market Strategies. Only the day-trade charts have turned down here. Tomorrow I’ll be watching the first support below today’s low.
