Still watching for this. No true reversal yet as the T3s never were broken.

nice trade Gary.


After I dropped the trade, the volume weakened in something similar to a washout. I felt a lot stronger about the re-entry, but not enought to hold the 2nd contract due to the local DB

No late day C up 94..44 all she wrote. There is a reason late day C up is a once in a blue moon trade. I have only seen it 4 times in 2011.

Past Friday trading is a distant memory. Monday took care of it.

Cheers Gary.
