AS I SEE IT: The strong up-move that started yesterday continued today into the FOMC Announcement at 2:15 ET. The Fed left interest rates where they were, but the market usually gyrates wildly after these announcements are made as traders look for any changes in the language. The market high came right after the announcement, and the low came at the close. Sub-prime loans are a worry, and many traders are waiting for the next shoe to drop. However, this is the end of the quarter and window dressing is in full swing. First support in the S&P futures will be in the 1514.00 area tomorrow morning.

Day-trading profits were good here at Soaring Phoenix today, but day’s like yesterday spoil us when we have average results.

Have as much fun trading as I do.
