What a day!!! The market opened higher and kept going strong only to retrace fast most of the upside before rebounding . At one point the NDX-100 was up over 45 points at 2988, then it sprinted lower returning 33 points and closed at 2974. This week will be marked with a high degree of volatility as on Wednesday we will hear from Mr. Bernake. Continuing with our strategy, we shorted on spikes and were able to close our positions when it corrected, but must admit that at one point we thought we were going home with a loss. For the time being our prefered trade is short on spikes.
