Oh so close!

A few ticks away from my target. Still can get there, and I still think it does


1133.50 suggested

Based on the Fibonaci levels, 1133.50 is now expected, at a minimum


Nice size gap down

And again, a nice size gap to start the day

I'll be stalking a fading opp here

A brutal day in Tinyville

My cycle is now completely messed up.

I was up until 4AM Thursday, then slept through the gap.

Two of my three boys are sick, as is my wife who went to work after going to the doctor. I haven't caught it yet, and most likely won't- why? Because then I can be the one to take care of everyone else. I'm no nurse, so it will be a fumbling, bumbling, Keystone Cop mess if that's the case.

I went to bed at 6:30 and got up at 9, so now Im awake again, starving since I haven't eaten since lunch and as it takes about 10k calories a day to keep the shape I'm in, now what? Eat at 10:15 at night? No, try to write a blog post and do the videos to keep me from eating, but it wont.

To top it all off, Demi and Ashton are "allegedly" calling it quits? Unreal.


2 way trading

As expected, we are seeing some nice 2 way trading here. A nice chunky gap up that was filled to the tick, and then a nice bounce half way back.

Volume is a little lighter than yesterday, which was the lowest in a week.

took a while

It took a little while, but we got the further downside

Getting hit here pretty good, showing some nice volume down here


New lows are now expected

We should see new lows from this push based on the 78.6% retracement.


Got the new lows

Got the new lows as the $TICK forecasted, but the downside does not look like it;s over. Watching for a short entry as this bounce fizzles


Just back

Just getting back and I see it was a "missable" gap, but now we seem to be under some pressure

Breadth is not nice here at -1560s and the last TICK low suggrests we have more downside to be seen


Tuesday, September 27, 2011

It should be a tradable gap on Wednesday


I wont be here!

Commitments in the AM mean I wont be in front of command central until 1:30 or so.
the blog will be dark until then.

trade well!

Stock Market Trading Watch List For Wednesday, September 28th 2011

Not a wide range

We are only in an 11 point range for the day, which is not that wide, especially as of late.


RHCP in honor of the market

Sorry you have to deal with Arsenio Hall

Im an old school chili Pepepr's fan, newer stuff I'm not a big fan of, but the hit the album before this was good


Market update

We ran smack into resistance on the S&P Futures, and so far have seen a small rejection, but nothing to speak of.

We've entered the lunctime doldrums time zone, which means we could get a pull back here, as we digest the morning run up, but so far there is nothing pointing to a reversal. Breadth is very strong.

The NDX is still lagging, but that can last for weeks.

Not changing my bear market opinion, but we are in the middle of a squeeze here, and it needs to be respected.


Big resistance here

We are above the first horus highs, but we are into a big balance area here from 9/21

Let's see if we stay strong here.

breadth is very strong.


Different day, almost same story

NASDAQ 100 is lagging, but volume at least is higher than yesterday

Russell once again is strong


First half hour ready to close

With the exception of a little pull in, the market has been on fire the first half hour.

Breadth is exceptional, and although it is only the first half hour, I will give it some weight when it is its skewed.

I still tihnk we get a fade of something, although we came just shy of the 4 point I like to look for, so is it already work done?

I don;t know if we tank, but I still see us pulling in a bit more here off a fade, but waiting for a soolid entry.

We have some exhaustion buying up here, so with a divergence a fade could set up here.


Big, bulky, gap up

Watching for a fade here, may want to digest a bit, buit this is a veyr large gap up, and needs to be watched for a fade entry

S&P 500 Video for Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Calling a bottom......really?

I've read a bunch of stuff tonight from folks suggesting the lows are in, or at least the lows for a while, of course hedging that we will go back down eventually. Most of the reasoning is "we had every chance to take out the lows, and we didn't. We stayed firm Friday and Monday's action was bullish".

Monday's action was mildly bullish, not even good. Every chance to go down? We got crushed Wednesday and Thursday last week, we are taking a breather.

Here are my reasons why it wasn't even close to a great day for the Bulls on Monday:

1) Where was the volume?

2) Where was the NASDAQ 100? It lagged after being the clear leader these past few weeks.

Need any more reasons? I don't.

I think that we were up Monday because there is a plan (whether its good bad or indifferent doesn't matter) to save the Eurozone, and we have some Window dressing kicking in.

I'm not calling this a bottom yet. I still think we will take out the lows and at a minimum test 108.84 on the SPY. For now, I'm calling it a dead rat bounce.


SPY at resistance

The SPY is at resistance highlighted in last nights video.

Above here and a full gap fill from Thursday is expected.


Bearish, and so far, wrong

My 1122.50 level on the downsdie was not hit, so we held the line in the sand. My longer cycle work (still intra-day) suiggests the downside isnt over, but breadth is not agreeing


Into resistance

S&P Futures hit the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the all sessions range

So far, rejection, but watching for a test back up with volume divegrence for a short signal


Line in the sand

The line in the sand here is 1122.50 which is the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the overnight range.

A break below that suggests a full retracement down to the overnight lows at 1115


Breadth not horrid but negative for sure

Breadth now falling to -700, and we are not showing any signs of price stabalizing


APL support

393.40- the daly 20 EMA


AAPL getting hit

AAPL is getitng hit here early on, see if the selling subsides on it


An active overnight session

We had a nice wide range in the overnight session. We quikcly ramped off the Sunday night open, and then fell own to Friday's lows, before ramping back to new highs.

That's a nearly 36 point range in the overnight session.

We are now off the highs, and still gpaping up 9 or so points. I'll be watching for a fade off the open, looking for a half a gap fill to start, followed by a full one.

As always, I will wait for confirmation.

Volume on the light side

Volume is traidng light as the market digests the last few sessions

Still tihnk we test the overnight highs, but just got a gorgeous TICK and breadth divergence on the last set of highs


Another reason why I wont be moving to Texas



Breadth still bullish at +1k, and upside target is still overnight highs.

So far, nice size pull in from the highs



About to be tested

above that is 1136.25


Missed one

Missed the 1130.50 level for redistance based on the swing down form the overnight highs to lows

Above those highs 1131.75 would be next reistance


Short term volume climax

Getitng short term volume climax up here on this push, but no signal for me unless theres a divergence


1131.75 next level

We are above the highs, and the 127% now comes in at 1131.75


OK either or


1124.50 knew better than to mess with me! LOL



1125.75 is short term resistance

sorry for the last post


Short term resistance

Short term reistance at 1124.50 holds, a take out of that level suggests a test of highs to be seen


Market- a quick look

Push up filled the gap plus a little bonus, but cycle work with volume divergence stepped in and sent us back down to test 78.6% of the early range

Breadth is basically flat.

Recent lows at 1116.25 must hold or a retest of lows is expected


Early volatility

Wide range chop is the model, and so far it's sticking to it

Breadth is not horrid at -300s, but it's early

Still think gap fill gets done we are close here


climax volume into the gap fill

Got a volume push into the gap fill

next time up with a divergence Ill be watching for a shorting op



Nice fade so far, but we haven't gone green yet which is the target

1123 short term resistance, and then 1125.50 which fills the gap + a little bit

A song for the Bulls

breadth is the foot on the market's neck

Lots of signs that we are fishing for a low down here, but breadth just simply won't get off the floor

very tough here, as we are over shooting support

Scalps are all the long side is worth- for now, but this cna change quickly


Another higher low or will we get the new lows?

The double bottom held for a few points, then got whacked

Breadth has improved off it's lows but still -2300s, not the kind of level that a rally comes from.

Big question for now is do we test the lows or put a higher low in

Either way, we are not seeing much bullish participation here.

My cycle work suggests lows to be kissed at th least


"Come again next Thursday afternoon.......

Some Elton as we head back to lows

chopping around

Won't stay choppy for long here

Let's see if we get a move .

Breadth is nasty upside will still be limited



Nice bounce of a slightly higher low double bottom here

Breadth is -2400s, which is anything but bullish

We are getting a reactive bounce, that's all for now. 1133 confirms a small double bottom



Overnight lows


Higher low?

Could print a higher low in here, but I don't think we do, I think we at the least test those overnight lwos, and likely break them by a smidgen, but we'll see soon enough


So far

A bounce straight off the open

Still think we have a chance to cycle back down before we get the real bounce, if it's coming


Panic Mode

Everyone is screaming bloody murder here as the S&Ps are CRUSHED. They were down over 30 points, but have eased a bit and are only down 29 as I type this.

We are right around the level that the last bounce started from. I'm not bullish here, and haven't been for WEEKS, but I'm not changing my plan for the day, and still believe we can consolidate in the AM and that there can be an opportunity for a TRADE down here on the long side, with the proper confirmation. I'll likely be waiting for at least the first 5 minutes to be traded.

My 1143 number is out the window, and I'm now watching to see if we cna test those overnight lows at 1120.

Stay calm, take a deep breath, and if the volatility is too much for you, stand aside and wait for it to subside.

Forgot this one on the video tonight

This one is a strong one, but a shooting star in Wednesday's session puts the upside in question


S&P Video for Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

More breaking news

R.E.M. broke up? I had no idea they were still together. When was the last time they did an album?

What's The Frequency, Kenneth and Man On the Moon are the best


As of right now....

We have an ultra-short term bounce indicator for tomorrow, at least at or near the opening

It's too crazy here to hold overnight, as the draw down could be intense, but if we have weakness in the AM, it could be a nice buying opp FOR A TRADE. Not looking for anything past that.

More later on the video



$TICK can't get back over zero, which is keeping lifts to a minimum


1173, 1176.25

Basis the S&P futures- 1173 and 1176.25 are next levels if we do get a continued bounce are resistance levels to watch

1165 support on the downside


New lows

New lows, and picking up some divergences here but breadth is lame and we are in no rush to get any bounce of substance



Next up- Soros to appear on CNBC and try to scare the living crap out of people


Hold or fold?

This is kyey support here, do we hold it, break it, or most deviously, break and then remount


A bootiful fade!

Fade out of the way, now we'll see who steps in here and takes in charge for the afternoon


Quick spike up

Quick spike up followed by a flush. Now let's see what happens as they are trying to stabilize


And of course...

Since I decided to take a rest instead of sitting in front of command central over here and getting some writing done, that cycle I mentioned happened to be a clean, no sress down move

Ah well, if I was here trading it I'm sure I would have gotten shaken out a few times, that's the way it goes!



Price target was raised, but unless yesterday's highs are taken out, still looks like it's due for a rest.

It's not a "short at any price" trade like some are saying, but it's one to watch for sure, especially after the Fed news is digested


Done until the Fed

I'm done until the Fed announcement, but we don't look very good here.

Intra-day cycle work is saying we go lower from here, but I don't expect much ahead of the announcement.

Breadth is also poopy, but nothing too sharp.


1200 holding

so far, 1200 is the boss

I'm expecting chop today, at least until after the Fed


No fade

No gap of any size today. it was aroudn .75 I tihnk, but it was defintiely not the 4 point minimum I require

I am watching this first push up for a possible short, but I'm not going to guess at it

1200 is short term resistance, lewt's see how we act there

Not a fan of the breadth

I'm not a big fan of the breadth here. It's still bullish, but if we are set for a further move higher, I'd expect it to be better

So far, cycle reistance is holding


RENN is in the 5s!


where is the super guru and his call to 50s?


Overnight highs are now expected

So much for the grind model!

Market just ripped it up to new highs, and the overnight highs are now expected to be tested

Gap fade was just a place for the bulls to reload

If breadth were stronger, I would have a higher target, but its still bullish and strong enough to get the job done on the short term.

From there, it's time to re analyze

We are a few ticks off the highs as I finish this up


By request

Next upside target for AAPL


So far...

So far it's a pretty "by the book" day.

The gap faded, and then we got the push up off the residual momentum form the pre market

What's the book say for the rest of the day?

Small dips from here holding support and a grind it higher to try the overnight highs.

I don't want to make it sound like voodoo, it's just a short term model and it's just a background, the price action always has the true authority

Breadth is mediocre and doesnt support a strong rally yet



Highs of the day sesison are being printed here, and 1211.50 is the overnight high, basis the S&P Futures obviously

volme divergence and lack of demand up here suggesting we pull in, but it may not be much of a pause


1198 holds- for now

The first try to get back above 1198 was thwarted, and now they are trying again.

The FOMC tendency is not in stone as an "always", despite what some crooks will have you believe, and the market did have the upside last week. Still, I think there is a better than average chance we at least try to trade higher into the afternoon tomorrow, but it may be a grinding affair.

It's very choppy here and breadth is slightly negative, and if it stays this way, I'kll be taking a mid morning nap!


Fade and breadth

Fade is working out nicely, and breadth which opened in the +1000 range is now down to +100s, and quickly

Usually I like to wait at least 1/2 hour before giving much weight to internals unless it is really skewed (which +1k is not), so it's just a quick observation


Gap filled, and now?

Gap was filled pretty quickly, so not let's see if the bulls step back in or if they were just interested in the pre market

Above 1198 is short term inflection, but it needs to get above it with some range and volume and then see how it does at the opening price


So much for the gap down

The market shook off the Italy downgrade, which isn't a real surprise, and the market is gaping UP instead of down to start the session.

I'm looking to fade it, but will watch to see how it holds as it is day 1 of the FOMC meeting, and as stated yesterday, there is a bullish tendency into the announcement , set for tomorrow

S&P Video for Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Glad I was patient, because I was WRONG

There was no trigger for me to get short, although one would have been nice for a scalp at 1195 the first time around.

The volume pattern kept my "powder dry" as they say and we are trying to claw our way back. Breadth is still -1700 and we are still down 15, but we have almost an hour to go until the futures close.

New TICK high here may be a short term climax, but for now, I'm standing on the sidelines awaiting a better entry.


Stack up the reasons

Reasons I like us lower:

No gap fade
Breadth -2k
time of day

Of course, I can have all the opinions I want, but I have no trigger here so I'm on the sidelines awaiting one.

2 day FOMC starts tomorrow, so early weakness could make for a nice buying opp



1191.50 is the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the last swing down off the highs. if its broken and held, new highs are then expected


As Im finishing this up, we broke but can't hold- yet


Waiting for a short signal up here, so far no dice

Still is my opinion that we head back down, but not going to jump in randomly


Still think we have more downside to be seen

Lack of gap fade and the breadth still being pretty awful at -2k.

Volume is not firm on these small bounces, which suggests we want to retest down.

Whether we get the lows or not is not clear here, but the patterns in price and volume do suggest lower from here


Still down 20

We are still down 20 points here basis the S&Ps, but we are above the opening range, which is the first signs of a good bounce

New TICK highs just now

Breadth coming off it's bottom, but still -1900s, so its hard to get bullish here for more than a scalp- for now


Not to be

Ok, skip that whole pullback thing


Stalking this next push down

I'm stalking this next push down for a volume divergence for a long side scalp


Relative strength

CMG wow!


Got the push up

Now let's see how far we pull in

We are rotating around 1187 still


Watching 1187

1187 is my short term line in the sand here but we have moved to chop mode


This push up

Watching this push up closely for a shorting op for one more move back down.

Will wait for confirmation


Breadth getting a little better

Breadth is getitng a little better here, but it's still very bearish at better than -2k

Looking for a retest down here once again, let's see how far it gets


Divergence! Divergence!

TICK and volume divergence at the lows, one more push down that holds is a possible long side opportunity


Yep it wa sa retest + a bonus

New lows here as the market can't get off it's back for very long


Low volume push

I'm seeing a low volume push here into these highs which suggests we retest down a bit.

Not clear if we retest the lows or not.


Two screw ups

Stop should have been under 1182, I was way too tight with it

Should have waited for volume pattern, which signaled 1182.50

Could have been worse (I could have bought the open), and glad I stuck to my plan and saw the early move, if not the second one


I didn't let volume lead me

I don't know if this is the good entry or not, but 1182.50 was my new signal (I didnt take) based on a nice fat volume divergence that started with the flush out into 1183

I didn't let the volumje lead me, as I was too quick to see the big gap, but it was small risk

Target would be 1186.50, but like I said I'm not in at the 82.50



1185.25 looks like a short temr inflection point for the upside

If we can get above that, we have a chance for a that first 1187 target (which isn't saying much) and then maybe a push to the low 1190s

Need to get above 1185.25 with some volume, but so far, there's not many takers on the long side.


Early analysis

My early analysis of a test down to below the overnight lows waas correct, but my call for a fade low was off by a few points so far, and the way we are looking it might be more than a few as breadth is putrid, but it is early

I'm starting to get volume signals that a bounce is coming, but the early one was only 4 points, so not expecting much if we do get one. Short term target would be 1187 based on that measurement


Wrong below 1184

Below 1184 basis the S&P minis and I'm wrong on my analysis

So far there isn't much buying pressure here but we are trying to shake and bake it appears


Picking up some divergence

Here we go, fade lows may be in here, or they are very close.



There are the new lows, now in stlak mode


Would like to see new lows

I would like to see new lows below the overnight lows to clean this up

It's not an auto buy there, but I'll be stalking a setup if that does occur.


Sharp gap down, watching for a fade

We have a nice sharp gap down to start the session.

Since we are so close to the lows from the overnight, my initial strategy will be to see if we get a test back down early, and then look for a fade op from there.

If not, I'll move to a different setup, as with a big gap such as this, I don't need to catch the exact opening low to make gains if it does fade.

List of stocks from Tuesday's email

Here's the list of stocks I went over in Tuesday's e-mail.

If you missed them, get on the email list, it's free!


These stocks are all near the end of their respective short term cycles, and while they may extend a bit more, the lower risk entries have already been seen. From here a pause would be the next best entry.


Bingo- target hit

200 day MA tested on the NASDAQ 100 daily chart

Now let's see if it's work done, oor just a pause ahead of a push higher.


Watching for a shorting op, but waiting for confirmation or standing aside

Breadth is bullish, but there is divergence setup here on the daily chart. Watching the NASDQ 100 for a test of the 200 day MA, but so far it's fallen short. The NASDAQ Futures did test and actually poke through the daily 200 day, and they are sitting right around there now.

If we test up here and show a volume reversal pattern, I'll be watching to lean against it.


It is suggestive we see new highs

By the way, I'm using the Secember S&P Futures for my analysis

It is now suggested that we retest the highs of day at a minimum. Above that, watch 1200


Watching 1195

Watching 1195 basis the S&P futures, its the 78.6% Fib of today;s range

Will return for Friday the 16th!

Just checking in, Im at an internet cafe, which is what they call Dunkin Donuts in the burbs! At least the connection is ok and the latte is good.

Tried to trade, but decided against it when my TS went down three times from the connection. Been there done that, too much risk when you cant keep a connection stable

Happy Birthday To My Son Ryan

Ryan turns 2 today!

The one thing about Ryan that's different than my other two boys is that with the exception of a few isolated incidents when morons were attempting to file false criminal charges against me and making up stories about me so they can file fraudulent lawsuits (that were dismissed of course), I've been around him the entire time. Rather than hire a nanny (or finding some random person to watch my children like some people do) I look after them almost every day, as my wife's part time job has turned to basically full time.

Ryan was born just about a month before I was fired from the job that I had for 10 years. It was a depressing time, but seeing Ryan smile even at just a few months old always instantly cheered me up. He's also been my inspiration to come back stronger than ever, and ready to go back to kicking some butt.

I still think back to what one of the most selfish people the world has seen told me about how they couldn't "enjoy" their kids until they got to a certain age. I guess "enjoy" like what? Like a good piece of fish? I have enjoyed the company of my kids since the second they were born. They are the greatest thing that ever happened to me, bar nothing. That day that I made money? Not even close to the worst day with my kids.

Sorry for the personal post, but hey, it;s the weekend!

Fight at your own peril

Fight the breadth at your own peril. Any lifts are getting their heads chopped off.

Maybe this is a way to stop them!


Don't fight it, love it!

Nice little 9 point rip

Nice 9 point rip off the lows here, but breadth barely budged.

Short term scalps appears to be working, but other than that, keep one foot near the exit door


Not a coincidence

The SPY stopped at the 78.6% retracement of this week's range.

Breadth still in a "no buy" zone, but we could have the lunch time low in, which doesn't mean much here, because we are only 30 minutes from 1 PM.


Crash time?

I'm starting to read some end of week crash opinions. Since I have no opinion on this, I'll stay away from commenting about it.

Some are calling this an overreaction, but I don't agree. Today's move is within the overall trend, and therefore can't be considered an overreaction. Surprises happen in the direction of the trend.

If we break and hold the 9/6 lows, my whole "bounce before we get cracked" map goes out the window.

On another note, I'm watching old 80s metal bands. It started with EZO and Loudness, because I read an article and saw a video about some moron mocking Asian students at USC which led to the show he was working for getting canceled.

Anyway, listen to this guitar riff and his voice. Awesome. And the solo? Faggedaboutit.



The market is getting smoked like salmon thanks to news out of Germany regarding Greece.

No fade as the super guru sheep get slaughtered once again buying a "sure thing" gap down. I've said it before, but here it goes again: RUN The other way!

If this plays out like my scenario from last night's video, we test the lows of this consolidation and then try for a bounce. If not, we are heading for a retest of yearly lows, and likely sooner than later. We've already gone through the first support level, which was the gap from earlier this week.

Breadth is horrid, but it's actually showing some divergence relative to recent daily low A-D readings. If this sticks it could have some short term bullish implications for the market, which I'll go over this weekend. For intra-day and now, it's putrid and not to be fought. It's been the Queen of the scene lately.

Stock Market Trading Watch List for Friday, September 9th, 2011


Fade was perfect, then the double bottom led to a nice push up to a new high on the week.

We're now seeing a nice pullback to the recent break level, but breadth is currently negative.

If we don't take a big dive in breadth, watch for another try at the highs. If breadth doesn't get better, the upside will likely be limited, which means we can chop around into Obama's speech tonight

Stock Market Trading Watch List for Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Bulls putting the effort in, but...

Volume is lame. Good hold by the Bulls here for a second higher low possibility, which could lead to a push higher, but we'll see. I don't like to inject my opinion into the analysis, it clouds judgement. I do still believe that the next push up, if we get one will offer an excellent short sale opportunity for a retest at a minimum the lows.

I love how the super gurus that were calling for 1250 "easily" are now bearish, and of course no mention of how wrong they were As usual, only mentioning the lucky winners they got. The best is they think no one notices.



Lack of posts

Sorry everyone, but I've been working on a project (new scanning software, and it's going to be awesome) so I've been neglecting the blog a bit. I should be back to posting more frequently starting Thursday.

In the meantime, I'll do my best to throw up at least some commentary throughout the session.


Nice fade, and now....

Nice fade this AM, and so far, the open has been the low of day. Probably all that stuff from me about not buying right at the open huh? There was a gorgeous setup right before the open that led to a nice pop int he first half hour.

Anyway, so far we are oscillating on the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement that was highlighted in last night's video.

As I finish this at 2:14 PM Eastern, we are trying to break out to a fresh high, but it's right at short term resistance. Breadth is getting better, as it shaved about 1/3 of its negative value, but it's still -1600s, which is anything but bullish.

Those scummy, smelly super gurus

Well, I've heard it all now. Not to get into specifics, but anyone that is attending the upcoming super deluxe scamathon should have their head examined. Sorry, I usually have sympathy for victims but this is basically volunteered victimization.

You will be SORELY disappointed, as there will be nothing new taught, and it will all be dribble. These scumbags need to make up classes to teach because they have no real substance in what they do. Their way of gambling....errr trading is to load up on options, and if they lose, run another class, reload their gambling errrr trading account and do it again. You can always tell when they are losing, because the classes come out!

If you are being stonewalled for a refund, seek legal advice, and if you have to, contact your State Attorney General's office or the FTC. They are there to help.

Let me know what you think and if there is anything you would like me to do an article on.

Hags or three seaters need not apply, but I know the chief hag has to report back her spy notes so now she has the URL to do so.

Good to get away for a few days

It's great to get away from the markets for a few days. Unlike some super gurus who are addicted to gambling and could care less about their families (except to use them to scam their way into your hearts by trying to tug on your heartstrings), I try not to let my family suffer through my passion for the markets, but unfortunately, sometimes I dont give them the attention they surely deserve.

It was good to spend some time with my three boys, and my wife, and it's good to give the eyes a rest from the screens and the charts.

I'll throw the S&P and stock market watch list videos up on Monday.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Will the Job Numbers spark a fresh decline?

Lottsa people talking (few of them know) about the upside being done here.

My opinion? It's too easy here. While we have the measured move completed, and a nice looking ABC pattern in place.

Longer term I'm bearish, and think that we can go much lower here, easily into triple digits, but what I think is meaningless, and what the market does is most important.

I hate to cop out here, but it looks real easy to call for a resumption of the down move right here and now, but maybe I'm ignoring the obvious.

Let's get past these Job Numbers and then we'll take a look at the charts over the weekend.

I won't be around Friday, I'm making it a 4 day weekend for me, and spending time with my three boys. No nanny by the way, and while they are hard to handle at times, I'd rather raise them and know whats going on, then act shocked when something happens because I'm jet setting all across the world pretending I'm important. I'll leave that to others.

By the way, it's my birthday in February.....(elicits birthday wishes)

Have a great labor day

The Bears Will Have To Wait

The bears will have to wait a little while longer here as we haven't just crumbled out of the box.

Bulls arent doing much either, and breadth just went negative whle the S&P is hovering around unchanged.

5 minute chart looks like an elongated type of flag, if it was tighter.
