AS I SEE IT: The overnight market was higher early this morning, and after a small rally on the regular session open it began to sell off again. There were a few snap back rallies during the day but at the closing bell the E-mini S&P closed near the session low.

This is the third day the S&P has traded lower and short term market strengths are a little oversold, so I think it is possible to get rallies along the way. The Bears are in control right now and they are selling rallies.


Have as much fun trading as I do!
