Another strong start to the day as this potential bounce takes shape but then we faded, then rallied into the close.

The close is the most important print of the day so it wasn’t a bad day in the end.

I am still watching very closely though since the action has been a bit mixed.

We’ve become accustomed to sharp hard rallies off lows and we aren’t seeing that so far this time.

So, on that theme, if we don’t soon see a strong bounce then chances are we will just chop sideways to work off this very oversold condition and I will be exiting my long positions since that type of move will just be a setup for a next leg lower.

So, I watch and react still when I see the need but for now, I remain long.

SPY January 13, 2015If we move above 185 shortly then we should be good for a bounce back up to the 200 to 202.50 or 205 levels, if not, I’ll be out and look for setups for the next leg lower.

I’ve still got a 10% weighting from 194.60 in the SPY ETF.

Have a great night.

  1. I often wonder if the Fed doesn’t intervene through intermediaries like the Chinese authorities do to prop up the market on pivotal days like today. Of course that would be opaque and things like that don’t happen in a democracy.bought more Integra and Red Eagle today.
