AS I SEE IT: Overnight the market gave us another great bear flag formation on day-trading charts, and when that formation was broken early this morning the market headed lower, closing near the low of the day. Very short-term market strengths are oversold, but we’ll see how many traders want to go into the weekend holding long positions.

The volume is above average, so the E-mini S&P, Nasdaq 100, and the Bond futures trading ranges should be exaggerated tomorrow, just like they were today.

I don’t know when I’ve had more fun trading.
