Looking ahead to Friday by reflecting back on Thursday’s trading

DESPITE A WEAK RESPONSE TO DAY’S MIXED UNEMPLOYMENT SITUATION ECONOMIC NUMBERS, I FEEL THE STOCK INDEX SECTOR IS STILL IN A STRONG UPTREND
INDICES: 1/7/11: Higher closes yesterday for the nasdaq while lower for the cash and dow futures along with the S&P’s and nasdaq. All of the indices continue to be in strong uptrends overall with but the dow and S&P’s settling lower after making new CONTRACT HIGHS in reversal type action although they were not down much. However, until a new contract high is made, if at all, you can’t avoid the possiblities of a top and/or retracement. On the other hand the nasdaq made a new CONTRACT HIGH AND CLOSE. Now add the unemployment number coming out Friday to the mix. BUY SIGNALS FOR THE DOW, S&P’S AND THE NASDAQ. CALL FOR DETAILS!
