I try to post a full video once a week so I’m posting one today. If you’re just interested in the equity indices I cover those at the start of the video. Stan and I are doing two free webinars tonight, the first is on trade execution 30 minutes after the RTH close, and the second is on the big five stocks and sector ETFs an hour after the close. If you’d like to see either or both you can register for those on our February Free Webinars Page.
