hi! F16
This morning, i went short at 80.50 and i got out at 77.5 before the news. I would have stayed in but creeker didn't trust the news.
Next I went long at 75 well after the news andgot out at 79.00 when the trend line broke.
There was a break in the trend and I wanted to get out but creeker said to stay in...something about the a&d chart and how it looked.
We are taking a break now till after the news.
