[Market Alert] Bullish Targets Hit & Today’s Setups with step-by-step charts December 19, 2012 by Chris Henry
On December 6th, I was calling for the e-mini S&P to hit the mid 1,440′s. And yesterday we hit those longer-term targets. The stock market has given a mix of market conditions favorable for both swing and day traders.
After two big up-trending days, the ES was consolidating this morning, which gave us a few setups accross the indices. With oil contract expiring tomorrow… Read More
Trading on contract rollover day December 13, 2012 by Chris Henry
This morning in our Trading Room, we discussed how the US indices could easily go sideways and choppy and not show a lot of conviction because it was market rollover. Well, we were correct.

Contract Rollover Day: Why Gold & Oil Can Be Good Alternatives For Stock Indices December 13, 2012 by Chris Dunn

As I talked about from Friday’s “Show me The Money” video, I was expecting a slow, bullish trend today…
As expected, we had some nice long trade alerts off of market open on the e-mini S&P 500 (ES) and the e-mini NASDAQ (NQ). Right now during lunch, the market is flat on low volume, so this trend could reverse at any point. With more news later this week, I think we’re… Read More
My morning trades and why I was done trading before lunch December 7, 2012 by Chris Henry
This morning started out looking like it was going to be a volume-heavy day in the ES because of the reaction to the “Employment Situation” news piece at 8:30 am EST. Even though we didn’t get the volume we thought we would today, we still had a few compelling setups.
And even thought the volume was light during those trades, it practically died off and went choppy going into… Read More
