AS I SEE IT: The E-mini S&P rallied in overnight trading, it traded lower closing the opening gap when the regular session opened, then traded higher to Friday’s resistance levels. From there it started selling off on the GM strike news closing a little lower on the day.

My short, intermediate, and long-term trading strategies are all higher. The market is consolidating the large gains we had last week, now we’ll have to see if the day-trading lows hold and we have another rally, or if they break down to major support.

Our Day-Trading Strategies worked very well in the E-mini S&P contract, and were just fair in the Grains and Oil contract for me today.

Have as much fun trading as I do.
