Expected trading range
1200-1208 before 8:30. Monday's afternoon stop 1208.25 still valid
for 2 hours after the opening. Aggressive traders: stop 1208.25,
scalp to 1201 area; then get ready to scalp buy side for 1210-1212.
Conservative: Stop 1199, scalp buy side
for 1209-1211 testing. Be careful, if market can not take out
1212.75 at around 8:30, it will be back down to test 1195-6.

trade for 07/09/2001 Monday $
expected target 1186-1192 achieved at Sunday Globex (as of 11:30PM,
low 1189.25). At 11:30PM Globex sp bounced 9 points from the
low. If the opening is below 1202.50, try to "scalp"
short side one more time and ready to reverse to buy side. Keep
in mind, short selling is very risky now. Conservative traders:
better wait to buy for reversal. For how long this bounce will
last? Depends on this 1202.50 pivot/stop. If Monday's close
is above it, 118x low should hold for a while.

Still selling bias in the morning.
A reversal from 1206 is likely. Before 8:00 AM, stop 1223.75,

Wednesday, sp settled at 1240. Market plunged at Globex. As
we said... even if sp had bounced to 125x on Monday-Tuesday,
market would be bearish on Thursday-Friday; we had given 5 reasons

long expected flush! If 1225 broken, next target 121x. Opening
