Today´s market activity was very choppy closing 0.25% positive as Mr. Bernanke gave his testimony in Capitol Hill. He stated that outcoming data  will determine QE tapering and that  accommodative policies will persist for the forseeable future.  As stated in Bloomberg : “We’re going to be responding to the data,” Bernanke said today to the House Financial Services Committee. “If the data are stronger than we expect, we’ll move more quickly” to reduce purchases. If data “don’t meet the kinds of expectations we have about where the economy’s going, then we would delay that process or potentially increase purchases for a time.”  On the economic front housing starts came in lower wich should have resulted in a lower market.  Our strategy work well today and we prefer to short on spikes.

With the exception of early trading, we experienced a less volatile day in the market. China´s central bank intervention announcement combined with better than expected US economic news provided the back bone for a positive day. Even though we traded very lightly as the month is coming to an end, our trading strategy performed well. At current levels we still prefer long on dips, but must remain cautious as any bad news will send the markets lower.
