Hello Traders,

We started the week with nice bounce on stock indices, crude oil  and gold continue to hold.

The big question: Is this a small correction/ bounce after the strong sell off last week or is this a short term bottom?


My opinion is that it is just a normal bounce after strong sell off and that there is more room on the downside but we will need to see the market reaction if we can climb up to 1320 and 1337 on the SP and  94.50 on the crude oil
