Stock Market Futures up 300 Points Overnight | September 8

OK. So we awake to another gap.

I would not want to be a swing trader right now. Can honestly say I am glad to be a day trader in this tape. With the U.S. stock market futures up 300 points overnight we face a tough open. The SPY is trading 80% of its 14 day average true range with the gap.

Do you get long after the open or do you follow classic technical analysis and short-sell a gap higher in selling order flow? $199 and the 20ema on the daily chart is the next resistance level. It was the smart move to go home flat last Friday but could you honestly say it was because you expected a gap higher like this? No way. You went home flat because of the uncertainty.

Glad I am day trading.

Stocks to Trade | Tuesday September 8, 2015

Pete’s Notes:

  • I thought ETF’s reduced gaps?
  • Day trading mode again. Change from the open will be the play

Charts in Focus

Keuring Green Mountan Inc. GMCR

GMCR still in a well established down trend. There is some hope for the bulls. Two bullish weeks after capitulation. One to keep in your tracking journal. Make note to see if bullish volume continues and if the stock price makes a higher low on a test of the August 24 lows.
