The market continues to live up to my expectations. The movement on any given day is dictated by the news flow, and as I’ve warned would likely be the case, we’ve seen the indexes gap down and gap up depending on the latest trade news. This makes for a whip-saw environment that does not necessarily lend itself to investing but can be exploited on a swing-trading basis.

Today’s action was no exception. The futures started down hard on the NASDAQ side of things on news that a U.S. District Judge had ruled Qualcomm’s (QCOM) practices violate anti-trust law. But a big morning break overnight largely dissipated once Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin made a comment during Congressional testimony that it was “likely” President Trump would meet with Chinese President Xi at the upcoming G-20 meeting.

The NASDAQ Composite headed straight back up toward the UNCH line in a flash type of move on the comment, which was mostly just an unfounded insinuation given the use of the word likely. That move, however, ran into resistance near the UNCH line and the indexes reversed back to the downside.
