Apr 11 2013

Catch of the Day: CAT relative weakness gave an idea of the short even though SPY was making new highs at the time; slightest weakness in the market should have supported the short, which was exactly what happened. Bounce top signified by two Dojis was a perfect setup. On top of quite a few winning trades in the morning, the day is beyond perfect.

On top of all that, added a few more winning ones on GDX and SLW closer to the end of the day, to finish what came to be one of our best this year.

Session Time: Thu Apr 11 00:00:00 2013
