More important, Slope Plus has been knocking it out of the park lately – – just about everything tumbling out of Plus has been working out great, with the minor blemish that I mentioned I’d be taking profits on NUGT this morning, which simply kept going higher.

SPX fell away from resistance at both 50 hour MA and daily middle band. NDX was the most bearish, falling away from 50 hour MA resistance and closing marginally below the daily middle band, which had been strong support Thursday through Monday. That break under the middle band needs a confirming close under it again today.
