AS I SEE IT: The market traded in a down channel until mid-day before rallying the last two hours. From oversold prices there will be snap-back rallies even though the market is in a downtrend. Tomorrow traders will be paying attention to the Jobless Claims at 8:30ET for short term direction.


Have as much fun trading as I do!
