Actionable ideas for the busy trader delivered daily right up front
- Tuesday uncertain.
- ES pivot 2083.50. Holding above is bullish.
- Rest of week bias uncertain technically.
- Monthly outlook: bias higher.
- ES Fantasy Trader standing aside.
Well Monday was just about what one would expect for the last Monday of the year - the Dow was down a bit, the SPX was up a bit, ho hum. In fact I don't expect much action until Wednesday when the tax-loss sellers show up, assuming that is that they even do show up this year given the fact that we're going out on record highs. But anyway, I'm thinking we'll see even less volume on Tuesday and therefore there's little point in trying to call the market either higher or lower.. So I will just save everybody some time, skip the chart by chart run-down, cut to the chase, and call Tuesday uncertain right here.
And the winner is...
The technicals matter little for Tuesday. By this point what we should be more concerned about is checking on the stores of champagne and caviar for Wednesday night. So the call is simply Tuesday uncertain.
