Cruising Into The Weekend

Looking at a weekly or monthly chart of the SPX this market may look easy to trade in hindsight. But believe me when I tell you that the past nine months have most certainly separated the proverbial wheat from the chaff. And that means if you’re still here, liquid and trading, then you are a proud member of an exclusive and bad ass minority among retail traders.
