Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride

Pretty whippy this morning, isn't it?

When I was bleary-eyed and looking at charts until five this morning (groan……..) I was impressed at the tumble of the /ES. When I dragged myself in front of a screen again at 7 in the morning, an explosive nearly 20-point reversal had taken place. And in just the past few minutes, as I'm typing this, about a third of that lift was erased. For me, out of 105 positions, I was stopped out of merely 2, so things are steady-as-she-goes as we bang out a series of lower lows.
