Houston, we have a lift off!
I will take ES off at 3415, if we get there

edit: long NQ 11385
edit: working 11450 and 3414.25 to book profits

edit: sold ES 3410.5, keeping NQ - TICKs dive below zero
long Sep18 3400/3450 call spread for $18 as leverage. If we run higher, this will double

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 😃

Do or die for bulls here...if 3330 goes, we should see 3280 next
3350 is first resistance

Edit: Stop 3334.5

Cover 20% at 420
Edit
Looks like TSLA longs are holding until or after battery day to sell. All tech names are down big yet TSLA does not want to give.
Might cover another 20% at EOD
Cover 20% at 422
30% left
