AS I SEE IT: Yesterday’s gains started slipping away in overnight trading and continued to tank today on earnings from Citigroup and Exxon Mobile. Now we’ll have to see what the Jobs Report does to the market tomorrow. Lately the market has healed itself quickly after these large down drafts, but traders need to pay attention here and profit from these huge price ranges.

Day trading is always good when there are large range days, so these markets are giving us excellent trades all day.


Have as much fun trading as I do.
