With an interest rate decision out at 2:00 PM EST and press conference at 2:30, the market will be dead until the Fed, so I am not having my usual 9AM open for my Trading Room, but will start at 1:30 PM and likely keep going until after AAPL reports at 4:30 ET. See ya […]

Eventful day, too, with NFP at 8:30 AM then US Trade Balance print and Powell speaks at some point. Yes we bounced strongly off that SPX 2875 level given Thursday, but the 200 day is now a magnet and that’s where I expect we will be sooner rather than later. Trade safe and talk to […]

Markets, as of close today, had retraced the entire drop from Sunday night. It was not an easy bounce to play and I said I found the move to be more technical in nature than fundamental and as such hold it with suspicion. After the close, we got more Huawei news and Yuan currency moves […]

A new month brings NFP Friday and Trump has an announcement at 1:45ET on EU tariffs. I want to get my arms around market reaction and put on some new positions before my 11:00 call.

I will re-open my trading room 1:45ET in preparation for the FOMC minutes at 2 and 2:30 press conference. Housekeeping: I have also worked with Zeke to fix some of the recent issues that occurred with recent Trade Alerts: Bad Fills on Wide Bid-Ask Orders: Trend trade THC was up 61% when I went to […]

Been saying this for months:
“Need to learn to live with it”
Hope was not a strategy. 🚁
And basing reopening on a vaccine naive 🙄
