A solid day yesterday as the stock market held the gap higher on the news from Greece. Could this be the catalyst that finally removes the indecision?
Earnings this week will give us a good sign if we can begin trading with a little more conviction. JP Morgan reported this morning and is up $1.04 pre market.

SPY bulls held the open price all day. It was impressive. Price is back into the trading range. If we can trade above yesterday’s high that would mean $212 is the next target. I doubt it will happen though. Greek news or not, it’s had a decent 4 day run from $204-the $210 area.

- Impressive gap and hold by the bulls yesterday. Would expect a a day of back-and-forth today to digest the news. A few financials reporting today could give the sector some opportunity to day trade.
Interesting Chart Lessons:
