AS I SEE IT: The market rolled over and came down hard today because of poor retail earnings, sub-prime worries, home builders selling off, and the financial stocks getting hit. The tape started getting heavy after the overseas markets opened.

The Soaring Phoenix Trading Strategies gave me sell signals early this morning in the E-mini S&P. By the time the regular trading session opened the E-mini S&P had already taken out the first support price and continued on down after Mr. Bernanke’s speech to take out the second support price. Now the S&P has turned down for me in the short-term, and first resistance is in the 1529.00 area with the second resistance in the 1536.00 area.

I day-trade the E-mini S&P, Oil, and the Soybean contracts everyday. All three of them had great price formations and trading ranges today.

Have as much fun trading as I do.
