Despite a very minor hiccup to end 2009, the bulls made a great showing when it was all said and done. The early action was extremely ugly, but the March-December rally made the ultimate difference and solid gains were posted across the board.
And the run may not be done yet. After all, uptrends are still intact for each of the major averages, and that certainly deserves our respect. But, it is indeed a new year, and there are no rules which the market must follow. That said, we as traders must be prepared for anything to come along, whether that means a continued melt-up, a steep correction, or anything in between.
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!
