Back in day trading mode after a Met’s migraine…
The outcome sucks but we have a solid foundation for years to come.
The market views a potential rate hike this year as a coin-flip. I don’t see it happening with the SPY trading near 52 week highs.
Continue to trade sector and stocks specific. If the market is obvious it’s a bonus to your conviction level but don’t wait for it. The SPY continues to trade on both sides of the open price.

SPY selling on higher volume shows the reward potential, at least for one day, show the market needs to pause after a solid five week move higher.

- Short-sale setups are scarce, but longs with great risk/reward are too.
- Inside days may be the best play today.
- Financials continue to be neutral. So far, last week’s breakouts not holding.
- China stocks worth a look.

China’s factory activity fell for an eighth straight month in October, a survey showed, pointing at continued sluggishness in the world’s second-largest economy.
