My Observations and What to Expect:

Futures up moderately

After 4pm yesterday S&P futures dropped 5 points so expect the indices to be lower than what futures are indicating.

A lot of the major reports we have seen of late, initially see wild swings in price in both directions, but ultimately the price action settled back at "pre-report" levels.

Watch for whether the bulls can break 1,100 on the S&P and close above it. So far they are 0 for 2.

Next hurdle is 200-day moving average at 1,116.

Bears will try to push stocks below Monday's low, followed by a run below 1056.

Actions I Will Be Taking:
