    The broader market seesawed back-and-forth throughout the month, but mostly kept above SPX 1960. Nasdaq was bolstered up by internet and biotech stocks. It was until last week that the selling pressure finally pushed the indices back.

    This week, we haven't traded much at all. The market is very unstable right now. On Monday, stocks bounced, but, yesterday, stocks dropped again! It's probably better to hold cash until things calm down a bit. We'll wait and see if buyers on the sideline are willing to buy again on this dip.

    Good night and HappyTrading! ™
