AS I SEE IT: Overnight trading ended lower as our regular market session opened. The market traded higher for the first two hours before selling off to the day’s low. There was a little rally at the end of trading but at the close the E-mini S&P was just a couple points below the opening price.

This E-mini S&P ended the down week with an inside price day that did not break either the high or low of yesterday. For the moment the March E-mini S&P has support in the 1313.00 area and resistance in the 1345.00 area.



Have as much fun trading as I do!
