Dow Jones Downtrend; down day.

S&P 500 Downtrend; down day.

Nasdaq 100 Downtrend; down day.

SMI Uptrend; up day.

All Ordinaries Uptrend; inside day.

Stocks

CSTR short The (a) position was liquidated when it hit its target on Tuesday. The stop loss of the remaining (b) position will be moved to +0.5 R at 45.07 now. Its actually good that I wasnt there last week, because I would have been stopped out at this price already. SL(b) 45.07.

PBR long (a) position was closed with a profit at 23.48 on Tuesday. The remaining position would have been stopped out, and PBR isnt going anywhere anyway, so Ill just close (b) market on open tomorrow.
