Attempt trade for 05/31/2002 Friday <!/$>

Before report, 1063.75 stop buying bias, target 1070. Buy side better take some profit before econ reports.

Keep in mind: DON'T dream that market would fly like a rocket. Huge resistance 1082 area before Monday. If reports are good and Thursday's (yesterday) high 1070.50 is broken and 1073 broken, market would test 1080 area before first 2 hours of Monday.

For the above bounce scenario, if market gets stalled at 1080-2 area, watch out for x0-x5 points plunge before next weekend, (as early as before Wednesday.

If market can not even break 1071 (resistance/stop) after reports, it will plunge immediately to 1059.

For bearish scenario, expected close should be below 1065.

[Result: High 1080.5, low 1063.75, close 1064/1067.5)

Attempt trade for 05/30/2002 Thursday <!/$>

Support 1066.75, ready to buy one day bounce before 7:30, target, as we stated on Wednesday, 20 points buonce.
This 1074.50 is the pivot and resistance. Violation of 1075.50 will confirm 1085.50

If it opened above 1073 and below 1074.50, then there might be a quick short scalp before bouncing.

Opening Update: Too bad it did not open between 1073-74, otherwise we would have caught this quick short. Now 1060 area support, buying bias, target 1070, 1074,.... If 1064 is violation, target 1070 will be confirmed.

Comment after 1066.75 violation and bounced to 1068.50: Stop 1070.25, selling bias at 1068.75, target 1059-60 testing. Support 1054.

[Result: Open 1062, down to 1059.50, bounced to 1071, plunged to 1054.25 day low, bounced to 1066 close. At opening, we bought 1060.50, stopped out 1059.75, bought again 1060.50, made 8~10 points proift. We missed the short side by 1.5 points. Also bought IBM up 2.2]

Attempt trade for 05/29/2002 Wednesday <!/$>

There should be one more short scalping for 10 points target 1067-69 before another bounce attempt.
Resistance 1080, target 1067-69 testing, then followed by 1063 if 1067 is broken.
Aggressive trade: Stop 1080, risk 1 point on short side scalping.

Expected timing for bounce 8:00AM PST.

[Result: High 1077.50, low 1066.75, close 1068.50]

Attempt trade for 05/28/2002 Tueday Monday holiday <$$>

If this 1080 support holds on Tuesday morning first 2 hours, still it would try to rally again. Stop1081 for buy side. Violation of 1091 will trigger 1100 testing again. Without bomb threat news, market should hold!

If reports are bad and 1090 is intact, 1070 testing will be triggered.

Update after the report: First trade, 1084 stop, selling bias for 1076 testing; 2nd trade, stop 1079.50, short at 1078.75, target 1070.

[Result: Globex high 1090, open 1083.50, low 1070.50, close 1076.50. We missed first short due to fast market; we shorted the 2nd one from 1078.75 with 1079.50 stop and took profit at 1070-72 area.]

Attempt trade for 05/27/2002 Monday (Closed for Memorial Holiday)

Attempt trade for 05/24/2002 Friday <$$> GDP worse than expected

Bullish scenario: Support 1092 area, buying bias, if GDP report is good, it will open gap up above 1100+(most likely 1105 area).

Bearish (correction one more time to 1080) Scenario: Only if GDP is bad and there is some bomb threat news again, it will test 1080 area.

Update after report: Stop 1096.50 and 1097.75, selling bias, target 1090-92.

Mid-day Updatae: Stop 1096.75, buy 1097.50, scalp 3-4 pts profit.

Afternoon Update: Stop 1090.50, selling bias, target 1081.

[Result: Globex high 1101, bad GDP report, open 1095.50, high 1097.50, low 1082, close 1082.50]

Attempt trade for 05/23/2002 Thursday <$/!> Durable Good Report

Support 1081.50, resistance 1086.75. Two scenarios:
Bearish side: Resistance still 1086.75. If this 1086.75 is intact after report, still selling bias.

Bullish side: (Our favor w/o any circumstances) Support 1082-1081 area. If this support 1082 (1081.50 stop for buy side including globex) holds after midnight before the Durable Good report, it will be for buying bias, target 1092, then 1101 before weekend (GDP report). This scenario will work if report is not bad and no more news about bomb attack for one day.

[Result: Globex low 1081.50, open 1084, high 1099.50, low 1080.50, close 1096.50

Attempt trade for 05/22/2002 Wednesday <$>

Bias is buying if 1086.25 is violated (without circumstance of stupid terrorism). If this 1086.25 is intact before 8:00am, another story!
Use Tuesday low as support. Stop 1080.50, buy side.

Don't be aggressive with short again! Pivot 1086.25 violation will trigger reversal up, target 1090-1092 pivot. If this 1086.25 is intact before 8:00am, another story!

Opening Update: This 1086.25 is intact and it opened weaker than expected, try to short today with 1086.75 stop.

Update after 10:30: Stop 1082.75, selling bias from 1081.50, target 1074.

[Result: Globex high 1085.50, open 107.25, high 1086.75, low 1075.50, closed 1085. We made 3 trades, one stopped out with 1 point, net profit more than 10 pts.]

Attempt trade for 05/21/2002 Tuesday <!$$>

Resistance 1096.50 for short side scalping; BUT, If it opened gap up above 1098.50 (to our Monday afternoon stop for short), try to short again for 1092 target testing.

If 1090 remains intact for 1.5 hours (by 8:00am), then consider a scalping buying.

Yes, buy side 1090-91 is tempting, but this terrorism stuff is really bothering!!

Opening Update: Resistance either 1100.75 or 1098.75, target 1090. Stop 1098.75, selling bias at 1097.75, target 1094.

Update at 7:10: Stop 1098.75, still selling bias, short again with 1 point risk, target 1090

Update at 10:15: Wait for 30 mins, stop 1089.50, still selling bias, target 1080.

Final trade: Stop 1085.75, short at 1085, target 1079.

[Result: Open 1097.25, high 1100.75, low 1079.25, closed 1083. We shorted 1097.75-1098, stopped out at 1098.75; shorted at 1098.75 again with 1099.75 stop after high 1100.75, took profit at 1094; shorted again 1097.75 with 1098.75 stop, took profit at 1088; shorted again from 1091stop, took profit at 1087-86; shorted again 1088.50 with 1089.5 stop, took profit at 1084-81; shorted again 1083 with 1083.75 stop, took profit 1080 or 1081.25 trailing profit taking; final trade, 1080.75 short and stopped out 1081.50.]

Attempt trade for 05/20/2002 Monday <$/!/$>

Remember? we said there should be one more pull back before this coming Friday's GDP report. Testing of 1080 pivot has not been total ruled out, but sp needs to break the following pivots before 1080 testing: 1100.75, 1096.50, 1092, 1087.50.

If it opened gap down below 1100.75, watch out for a down day. If it opened gap down below 1100.75, it would be selling bias. Once 1100.75 is violated, 1104.50 will be the resistance for shorting, target 1189-90. FBI's warning about attack should affect market today.

Afternoon Update: stop 1098.50, short 1097.5, target 1091.

[Result: Globex high 1106.75, open 1102.50, high 1103.50, low 1090.50, close 1093.75; stop 1099, buy 1099.75, stopped out 0.75; stop 1100.75, we reversed to short at 1099.75, took profit 1094 and 1091; shorted again 1095.5, stopped out 1 point; shorted again 1097 with 1098 stop, took profit at 1091-90.]

Attempt trade for 05/17/2002 Friday <$>

Little correction is over. Up trend is intact. As we stated in WarRooms, once it goes above 1100, we may not see 1080 again. As said on Mrch 13, a 100 points from May low. Stop 1100-1, buying bias, next target 1114, 1120, today the earliest, or before next Monday close.

Opening update: Opening is not strong enough, try to scalp short a little bit then reverse to scalp buy side later.

[Result: High 1108.75, low 1097, close 1105.25.]

Attempt trade for 05/16/2002 Thursday <$/!>

Resistance either at 1100.50 or at 1098.50 area, testing 1085 is still valid. If 85 broken, it could trigger 1076.
Waiting for report. Wednesday's trading range may repeat one more time.

If this 1089 is still intact by 7:40, then it could go back up again.

Nasdaq would go test 1720 as dow would test 10330. SP Resistance 1080, support 1072. Let's see how market would behave after retail sales report. Good report will make sp open gap up above 1080.

Monday morning sp should be weak, because it should test last week low 1046-1050 before reversing back up.

Estimated: Producer Price Index(Apr, 2002) 5:30 AM PST Apr, 2002; PPI 0.5; PPI less food & energy 0.10. Let's see how PPI would affect market. If it is a lot worse than expectd, next target 1060 after 1066.75 violation. If it is a good report, it will test 1084.

PPI report is better than expected. This 1087 testing is valid. Pivot resistance is 1080.50 At the opening, if 1080.50-1080.75 is intact, agg trade can try scalp short side and reverse to long.

Update after PPI: Resistance 1080.50, scalp short side, target 1073; then try to scalp buy side with 1072 stop risking 1 point. If 1072 broken, don't buy again, cause market could reverse down for target 1060.

sp opened gap up at globex 1052 and bonced to 1055 when afterhour market closed. This 1070-72 is valid now. Looks like we are going to chase buy side to 1070 area if it opened above 1059.75 pivot.

1055 support for buy side.

Target 1050 achieved! Let's see how it would open.
FOMC today. Before announcement (11:10), there should be a bounce; but it should plunge to 1043 first before 7:45AM.
Resistance 1056.50. If this level is intact and open below it. Aggresive trade: try to scalp short one more time for 1043. Let's see how it would open.
If opened gap up between 1057-60, short again for 1043-4.

Then ready to reverse to buy side for 20 ~25 points bounce; only if the selling momentum is not strong. Becuase a strong selling mometum can take sp to 1035 or lower.

Nasdaq stocks were back down again. Without stocks cooperation, index can hardly have a decent advance.

If 1095-7 failed or not even test Thursday's 1093 high, sp could start to swing between 1090-1060 for two weeks while stocks could keep drifting lower. Avoid trying to trade stocks aggressively based on index. If market can not take 1097 out (or even 1095) with good report, it would indicate more up side in doublt and we will be back to short side again. Support 1078, resistance 1095-98. 1078 violation will trigger 1074 testing before 9:00AM. If report is neutral, try to scalp short side for 1074 testing before 9:00 before reversal.

Pre-Opening Update: Stop 1086.25, selling bias, target 1073-4 testing.

Scenario #1: If testing 1097 on Thursday. Support/stop 1085, buying bias, target 1095, 1099. Target could be hit before Thursday close. Even if 1097 pivot is not hit on Thursday; Friday's job report could have it just skip this 1097 pivot and open gap up!

Scenario #2: If testing is on Friday; then trading range 1090~1080 +/- 1 point. If breakout 1097 on Friday, Thursday should be 10 pts trading range (1090-1080 +/- 1 pt), 1085 violation will trigger 1081.
