Fed Thursday! On Your Mark…GO?

Today Oil, Energy, and Precious Metals jumped the gun and were off and running!  We'll discuss more than just those  areas, but first lets revisit what we were watching for.

WTIC 9-16

Almost There

Mondays trading  was a little like watching paint dry in the markets and Tuesdays wasn't a whole lot better.  You can bet that  things will pick up at all when the Feds decision on interest rates is finally handed down on Thursday,and  it's almost here.   Lets look at what we have so far.

SPX - Tuesdays move gives it the look that it wants to break higher.   If it does it may just back test of the break down.

SPX - You can see the same sideways move that has been playing out for weeks.
