AS I SEE IT: The market traded higher in overnight trading and after the regular session opening bell, but sellers came in and took it down for the remainder of the day. This market is very volatile so traders are having a good time trading it. Next week will be a very busy news week so I look for big price swings to continue.



Have as much fun trading as I do!
