AS I SEE IT: The Fed did lower interest rates by .50 basis points and lowered the discount rate by .50 basis points also. The market did have a fast strong rally but slammed on the breaks at resistance and sold all the way back closing down on the day. The S&P closed below yesterday’s low so I want to see if the bear flag holds or if we break down further from here. This market moves on news and the Fed so all of us day traders just have to follow our trading strategies and profit from them.


You can have as much fun trading as I do!
