A strong outside bar, reversal down day on higher volume - NASDAQ, S&P and DOW. This may set the tone/direction for the next few weeks.

Hey Jim,

Good observation. As soon as oil hits the 50% Fib. retracement zone in the $100.00 area, oil/energy, metals/mining, Agchem, and secondary plays such FWLT/JOYG should get big technical bounce. Markets will retest July lows. Not sure how the USD will play out. But pretty sure it has bottomed.
