AS I SEE IT: On Friday I thought the market could back and fill today and that’s what happened. Overnight the futures were a little higher but at the opening bell the market sold off a little. It did rally trying to fill the closing gap but that failed and there was another sell off to support. The E-mini S&P found resistance in the 1478-79 area mid day so the S&P needs to hold above that level to trade higher. From there the next resistance is in the 1495.00 area.

Trading ranges were not large in the E-mini Futures but the Wheat and Oil contracts had very nice trading ranges.


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