AS I SEE IT: After trading lower for two days the market turned in overnight trading and had a very strong rally with strong market internals. Short term resistance prices were taken out and the 1477 t0 78 area held a small price retrenchment mid day. Now I want to see if the resistance at 1492 to 93 can be taken out on the long side.

I had some good price formations and trading ranges in the E-mini S&P, Grains, and the Oil contracts today.


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