Not much has changed from Fridays report.  Things really have to play out further to confirm our expectations or to change them. In other words...not much has changed.  We experienced another peoriod of selling similar to what we had in Oct.

Its Triple Witching Friday

Today is triple witching and that can increase volatility and volumes.  The first hour tends to see the volatility, and by  the last hour the total day volume increases become evident.  If you are long the markets , you'll be happy to know that  usually there is a bullish bias to Decembers triple witching activity.  Nothing is guaranteed, so We'll have to wait and see.

 

SPX hit that lower target and reversed as seen here

The larger View

  The Big Picture .  Its important to your investing to know what you're looking at, each piece  big  and Small together.  Why? Sometimes it can help us to be patient and wait for the best trade set ups, other times it gives us confidence that our trade ideas will have positive follow through or minimal downside risk. Both are important as we watch the movement in the markets unfold. Well,  Today is Friday and not a whole lot has changed from the report yesterday, so I want to do a quick review and after today we can do a weekend report that may shed even more light on things.
