AS I SEE IT: The Dow reversed course on City Bank Earnings this morning and the higher Oil market. Earnings will continue to come out hot and heavy this week so market ranges should be good. The Dow was 188.76 points lower before it rallied back into the close, and the E-mini S&P Futures were down 24.50 before rallying back up 10.75 points in the last 45 minutes of trading. The E-mini S&P traded below the up-channel but closed in it at the close. I’ll be paying attention to the overseas markets early in the morning and trading with the price momentum no matter where this market goes.

Our Short, Intermediate, and Long-Term Trading Strategies are all long.

The Soaring Phoenix Market Day-Trading Strategies worked very well today in the E-mini S&P, Wheat, and the Oil contracts. The markets are on the move so price patterns are good. Our Trading Strategies work in any market with enough volume and momentum to form good price formations.


Have as much fun trading as I do.
