AS I SEE IT: Interest rates that were a little higher and an Oil market that was a little lower couldn’t keep stocks from rising today. The market sold off early to short-term support and rallied, stopping out short-sellers as the day continued. This bull market continues, and unless today’s low is taken out on a closing basis in the S&P contract, short, intermediate, and long-term trends are still up for me. The day-trading trends are still down with the first resistance at 1540.00 in the E-mini S&P contract using the Soaring Phoenix Market Trading strategies.

DayTrading was very good today in the S&P, Nasdaq, Oil, and the Grains.
