AS I SEE IT: The market opened higher but sold off immediately for an hour. Then it rallied back up to the overnight highs before selling off again. On the way down it jacked back and forth ending the day lower.

This is the window dressing time of the month so I just have to go with the market momentum. Usually the market rallies at this time of the month but news and earnings will move this volatile market.


Have as much fun trading as I do!
