what is it going to be?

yesterday we had a strong rally after fomc. but got rejected fast. then overnight and early this morning the market tested 1140 again and failed.

market also tested support area around 1130 several times and so far it was holding. right now we are at that level.

so where is the market heading?

I would say if we cant break 1134-1136 to the upside, then the market will rollover and move lower.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

You can keep track of primo with PRSP.Z, which represents the cash price of the S&P 500 Index subtracted from the price of the nearby S&P futures contract.

If you're looking for a more fundamental approach, theres always the Commitment of Traders report that comes out every week. Its utility all depends on your time horizon. I like to look at it so i can understand what certain types of traders are doing, especially for agricultural products.
