Featured Breadth Chart of the Day:
We will do the New Highs/Lows again for our chart of the day. The bulls have settled it down, now it is time to grind it ever higher, just a few at a time.
UK Prime Minister Cameron should take a congratulatory selfie. Excellent numbers from the island nation today. In the US it is housing and capacity. We will also be checking in to see how the fine people in Michigan feel. Those last numbers come post market so don’t get caught the wrong way round.
Quote of the Day:
If misery loves company, misery has company enough.
–Henry David Thoreau
Comments and Levels for the Front (S&P 500 – E-mini futures) contract:
We are sticking with our 1849 with some expectation that 1854 is in sight. We will have to see how it works itself into the close, but breadth continues to point us higher for now. A break of 1826 will signal a counter move for us.
On the MiM:
It was what I call a Christmas MiM, both red and green at the same time. That of course kept me out of a trade, but I see you could have been right either way for a couple of points. Today is Friday and I expect we just might see some money go to work here. Worth checking out the MiM around 3pm ET today.
We are just a week away from another MrTopStep boot camp, a unique opportunity to spend an immersive period learning how the IM Pro room trades. There are still some seats open and you will get direct access to me and trading the MiM. Click on boot camp to signup.

Comments about TLT (Twenty year Bond ETF):
We are going to be interested in shorting the 105.50 area. We remain bearish overall for bonds.

Long Term Trender - Cumulative 4-week Highs – Lows (the fat lady):
Marc Andreessen, founder of Netscape and Internet pioneer and venture capitalist, weighed in over the last few days on his thoughts on NSA spying. I have to say, I found someone who felt the same as me.
Every day there is what I can only assume is mock outrage over NSA revelations. I have to say I haven’t seen anything that I didn’t already know and I thought everyone knew. Where have the reporters been for the last 11 years?
They are listening to Merkel’s calls? The shame shouldn’t be on the U.S. but on Germany. How can that happen? And if the U.S. can listen in, don’t you think the Chinese and the Russians can too? It is embarrassing for Germany, but the newly present press gets it all wrong again.
I am not a fan of mass spying. IRS-gate and Bridgegate should show us the dangers of rogue civil servants. I am a fan of discussion and rational thinking. So let’s get over the shock, tell NSA good job but we would rather have you do this and not that and move on.
Enjoy your weekend and stay off the grid!
