Quick Trades, Breakeven

|Includes: FITB, OIL, SPY, The United States Oil ETF, LP (USO)

I lost a few ticks in my FITB intraday play and also did a quick profitable scalp in the S&P Futures near the close of trading. I broke even in these out of standard, out of norm trades. Sometimes I do little scalps on the long side in the S&P Futures in the last minutes of the trading session and I have already made a few thousands dollars with this type of trades. 

I am still short Crude Oil Futures and that is my only structural position. It went a bit against me but is still very near my entry point. I am considering about a new short S&P position, maybe tomorrow or early next week.

Have you seen the Initial Claims Data? Pretty bearish, not? I did not hear the words "Green Shots" today on CNBC. Markets will go down, they cannot fight conditions, can they?
