Looks to me like they are slowly handing the bags to retails. Until they are done, they might keep the market up and not let it fall too sharply.

edit: wow... hail PPT and Fed. Crazy last mins buy. They win.

that's fine, bounce is expected.
on the way up, 2677 was resistance, we touched 2680 today - and found buyers. I think we are going to test 2730 again, and this should stop the bulls in their tracks.
I am looking for lower high to really go short.
It's easy to grin when your ship comes in and you've got the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile is the man who can smile when his shorts are too tight in the seat 😃

That was funny to watch. Weekly charts are still all green since the recovery began at Christmas.

Canada, Eh!!
Still trying to get NOK calls... I won't give a nickel more!!

Sold SBUX Jun calls for profit and looking to do same with CRM May ITM calls [already at profit but getting greedy]... gonna keep INTC Jan 2020 ITM calls although had several opportunities to sell and then rebuy lower but I'm not confident in my timing.

Bought TWTR Jun OTM calls.

today we are testing 2730. market poised to go lower, but bears need participation, not 5 guys trading in the pit.

edit: almost no chance we go lower. Market too strong, something under keeps the bids.

Unless DT comes out with a tweet, "no border no deal"....

I wouldn't be surprised he comes out after market close and say something like that. His PPT helped him prop the market to a level that he can afford to to bargain with the Dems longer.

normally, when market gaps up or down, traders fade the opening. Today it's gap and go, no sellers whatsoever. Which means most folks think higher prices in store, 2730 not enough of an incentive to sell.

edit: volume less than 400K at 11AM, this is nothing. Normal would be 1M. And we hit new highs. It's now for bears (while action is spiky) or we keep going higher.

Markets overshoot to the upside/downside.
2760 was resistance late 2018, tested it again.
I think melt up action is about to reverse. Trade deal with China (castrated edition) being priced in. No further catalyst for bulls...

Saying that, i am neutral. Dont want to commit short just yet, volume still ridiculously low. Buying back short calls in CRON for 50%.
