AS I SEE IT: The market traded higher in overnight trading, but when Bernanke’s speech was released it sold off for an hour. It tried to rally three different times in the afternoon but gave it up the last half hour closing near the low.

First support for me is in the 1347.00 area with resistance in the 1372.00 area. It looks like the market has started rolling over again but I want it to break the support zones to give me more assurance.


Have as much fun trading as I do!
