Easy way to get on these winning trades and not missing a beat.  You can get the email alerts sent directly to you when the trade goes out, it's that simple.  Couple of contracts on these trades MORE than pays for the alert service.  You'll get valuable tips and articles from me as well.  There is only ONE way to get it:

Tomorrow brings the end of the month and quarter and it seems that it'll be a good one for the bulls.  Indices are going to post 5-9% gains across the board, one of the best first quarters in a few years.  Breadth and volume are still an issues as the market rotation continues.  Today the commodities were beat up but durables, chemicals and tech were the flavors of the day.  Bonds were also subdued and perhaps are ready for a leg lower (yields up) if the jobs report is better than expected.  RIMM earnings are out tomorrow evening and I look for a good report and reaction.

The Big 100

I wondered about this zone of the SPX that seems to cause so much angst for bulls and bears alike.  Once that big 1100 number was passed then tested, it's been a struggle up, but even more frustrating to those expecting downside.  So, I went back in time on the charts to see if this area was significant.  Alas, there was a day in 2008, specifically Sept 29 that saw the SPX move down more than 100 points that day, and it engulfed the full 1100-1200 range.  It was an amazing day and drop, only to be surpassed twice over the next couple of weeks.  But those were the aftershocks from the earthquake on the 29th, and are much lower than where the indices are now.  So, we struggle in this 100 point range, because of the give n' go.  If 1200 is exceeded and tested (much like 1100), there may be some more good upside to be had.
