AS I SEE IT: The market sold off today as traders worried about sub-prime loans, higher taxes for the rich, and the higher Oil market. Large brokerages and banks led the way down. Day trading trends are still down, and the short-term support prices were taken out during the day, but the S&P closed back above those numbers again.

Soaring Phoenix Day-Trading Market Strategies had a very good week because of the large trading ranges and nice price patterns in the E-mini S&P, Nasdaq 100, Oil, and the Grains.
