AS I SEE IT: The E-mini S&P was up about 6 points when I got in the office this morning, and it gained strength from there. I had two losing trades out of the first three because of the small sideways trading after the opening bell, but at 1:30ET I got a sell-signal and the E-mini dropped 30.50 points from the high to the low. The Dow dropped 247.85 points from the high to the low and the Nasdaq took out three day lows. There’s no doubt large- range days are here to stay for a few days. I don’t think this down-move will be good for long S&P traders in the near-term, but earnings and reports will rule.

Using the Soaring Phoenix Day-Trading Strategies I ended the day with good profits after a slow start this morning. The Wheat, E-mini S&P, and the Oil contract were all good to me today. All three had very large trading ranges.


Have as much fun trading as I do.
