AS I SEE IT: The market continued Friday’s rally in overnight trading and after the opening bell, but it failed at resistance and started a sell-off that lasted all day. The Dow and S&P were down hard again today. Trading ranges are great for day-traders but this market has been tough for some position stock traders.

Short-term the market is a little oversold, but overnight news and government reports will give us direction at the start of the trading day. Trading reversals can be fast so I am always aware that they can be right around the corner.


There’s no reason you can’t have as much fun trading as I do!
