AS I SEE IT: Well, so much for my prediction that the market had a chance of turning over today. The turn down lasted about an hour after the open before the market gave me buy signals. It moved in a channel higher the rest of the trading day. I was watching the Bond market trade lower giving us higher interest rates, and the Oil market continued its rally closing near the $73.00 dollar mark. This market continues to attract buyers on any little price break no matter what is happening to interest rates or Oil prices so far. First support in the S&P will be in the 1527.00 to 1528.00 area on Monday morning.

Day-trading was good again today in the S&P, Grains, and the Oil market for me.
