Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading! 



Another big day in stock index futures. Push lower overnight and then a powerful rally the rest of the day session.


The big question of course is….is this a short covering rally or the start of another leg up?


No one has the answer but we can all speculate on different scenarios. Looking at both the SP500 ( mini) and the NASDAQ 100 ( mini ) charts below, I think the following need to happen in order for the markets to have continued momentum to the upside: Nasdaq has to break above 3115 and mini sp needs to break 1657.75 followed by 1562 . Even then the question is does one think these markets can make new highs or not?


Either way price action was bullish today, we took out yesterdays low and closed above yesterday’s high. I think it’s called outside day reversal but don’t quote me on that….


NASDAQ 100 is the stronger sector leading the way so far.


On the downside, I want to see SP 500 “entering the cloud” below 1640 and the NASDAQ going below 3064.


Lots of technical chatter today and bottom line is the way price action will be tomorrow..Hence futures trading (-:
