Current Long Positions (stop-losses in parentheses): QQQQ (42.27)

Current Short Positions (stop-losses in parentheses): ESV (42.84), MR (33.39), SPY (109.91)

BIAS: Neutral

Economic Reports Due Out (Times are EST): ISM Non-Manufacturing Index (10am)

What to Expect:

  • Market has been signaling a desire to bounce since this past Thursday
  • While the market won’t ignore bad news, it won’t ignore the good news either (at least today it won’t) – a positive ISM report could easily drive this market much higher today.
  • Watch intraday indices for major break in the upward trend for clues to a possible intraday reversal or profit taking.
  • Big gap up this morning will be a huge bear target going forward – watch out if the gap starts getting filled.

Actions I Will Be Taking:

  • Will leave ESV, MR, and SPY along today – my only  three remaining short positions left in the portfolio.
  • Main concern today, is how long do I stay in the QQQQ – an intraday gap fill attempt will likely cause me to sell.
  • Looking for when it will be “safe for me to play”, in order that I can sell my QQQQ positon, and make money again to the downside.
  • Won’t be looking to add any new short positions to the portfolio right now – heavily oversold and need to work those conditions off some.
