The bulls did some suffering last week, there’s no question about it, but they were able to put together a modest rebound on Friday after an exhaustion gap to the downside. The relatively minor recovery seen from there constitutes, for now, a successful test of the May 6th lows.
But we sure don’t know yet whether those support zones will hold. After all, we just confirmed a lower high on the daily charts of the indexes, and that’s nothing to ignore. The short-term trends are down, but the stretched nature of the most recent pullback opens the door for some additional potential on the bounce, so stay tuned.
As we head into a brand new week of trading, let’s examine some important levels in the indexes to keep an eye on in the days ahead. That will have the greatest influence on how individual stocks are going to move, so it’s where the trading week begins.
This clip was also posted over on the Trading Videos  site (as always), and perhaps you’ve seen it there – but in case you didn’t, I wanted to put it here on the blog for you.
Let me highly suggest clicking the “HD” on the video player and then going full-screen for best quality.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you here soon with more.
Until then… Trade Like a Bandit!
