Traded lightly in the morning, and pretty much nailed the bottom (thanks to $TICK and Volume inidicators). I went long at 739.75; only held it for +3 points though. Today's gross P/L was +$125.00. Overall, it's been an OK week considering I wasn't planning on trading much to begin with. The total P/L for the week is +$1,512.50, for the most part, trading with one contract. Today's P/L would have been higher but TradeStation started throwing the "can not route order" error again in the afternoon, and I missed out on 3-5 pts of gains. I'm glad I don't have my live account at TradeStation. In other news, my new computer came in today! Can't wait to get that up and running!
Market closed on strength but I wonder, who the hell's holding Long over the weekend, especially in this market where the slightest bit of news can trigger a sell-off? Looking at the 240-min and the Daily charts, next area of resistance looks to be in the mid 760s and then 800.
