The profit taking should step in within first 60 mins. Don't be greedy with last Friday's long position.
If it opens gap up, the pull back should be 20-30 pts.
[We took profit on CRA, SCMR, PWER, HWP, QLGC at the day high.]
Attempt trade for 10/13/2000 Friday (Main trend: Turning)$$$
First of all, Friday the 13th will have nothing to do with market!
<sp/z> Then get ready to reverse to buy side. (Potential 40-50 pts bounce if there is a sign.) If bounce is feasible, the reversal should happen between 8:30-9:00 PST. If there is no sign of turning after 9:00 and volume is not cooperative, watch out for another down week.
Monday will be the last chance for all 3 indices to end the down trend, otherwise the big picture will be distorted.
Stop 1337, buying bias, target 1368-72, if close above 1372, down trend should be over !
Attempt trade for 10/12/2000 Thursday (Main trend: )$$

Attempt trade for 10/11/2000 Wednesday (Main trend: flush)$$
[sp/z] Be conservative ! Because market would flush to 1365 and spike to 1345 before 50 pts bounce.
For Short side: stop 1406.50 now , selling bias, target 1365 (spike 1348) before this weekend.
For buy side: Market might try to bounce first 1-2 hours to test 140x. Can not find good stop for buy side so far, because sp could plunge 20 pts a day for 2 days or 40 pts in one day.

For buy side (bounce): stop 1410.00, buying bias, target 1431.
Attempt trade for 10/06/2000 Friday (Main trend: Flush down )$$$
Market bounce was not as strong as expected for last 2 days; especially dow's weakness for last couple of days... looks like it is about to flush. WATCH OUT ! If market is still reluctant to bounce in first hour of Friday, DOW/SP/NQ all three indices would plunge (final flush) into next Wednesday. (Dow down for another 250 pts, SP another 30-40 pts, NQ/z another 250 pts. Possible another down weekend ! We would get ready to go back to short if situation permits. [Result: Market was reluctant to take out previous day high 1462, we reversed to short side from 1455.]

BAD SIGN: At Globex, SP opened gap down at 1472.... ready for 145x target or even lower.
If market opens gap down below 1465-4; stop 1470, selling bias, target 1455-53 (spike 1450-1448).
If it opens at around 1470, then Stop 1475-7, selling bias, target 1455-53.
Attempt trade for 09/27/2000 Wednesday (Main trend: Swinging )$
Main trend is still down but bottom is around corner. For the rest of the week, market is more likely to swing between 1465 and 1445. Strategy for this week will be "scalping". Don't try to over trade before weekend.
If market opens gap down, try to buy for 1.5 days bounce (at least 1465); but previous low (1438) better be tested and taken out by 1 tick first. Even market bounces there is a chance it will swing back down one more time before weekend. If it does not open gap down, wait 20-30 mins for clue; because a sell off to 1430 is possible before a bounce could start within 60-90 mins.
Attempt trade for 09/26/2000 Tuesday (Main trend: Swinging )$$
[SP/Z] Monday's no-follow-thru already ruined the reversal up. For the rest of the week, market is more likely to swing between 1465 and 1445. Strategy for this week will be "scalping". For short side: stop 1467, selling bias, target 1446.
Attempt trade for 09/25/2000 Monday (Main trend: swings )$
Market will try to test 1465-4 area by profit taking sell off at open. Try to take a quick profit and buy back quickly at 1465 area with 1464-3 stop. If 1464-3 is broken, this 1455-3 will be inevitable.
Spike to 1455 is valid.
