Looks like a bull flag now. Stopped just short of 19250.

Weekly high at 19260 in view now.

Did you cancel your short? I seems overbought for the day though - RSI is through the roof. Where is it going for the rest of the day? I'm still surprised it didn't go the other way after the data

I usually use a 14 period ADX as a momentum indicator and that is high over 52 on the 15min, but It can go higher yet. Unless there is another push from the euro desks now I think the top is in. Famous last words though...........

Talking Re: Payroll Turd Polishing

I'll go for a Hurricane cleanup induced blowout at 355, 000, but acknowledge that I could easily be 200k out, but closer than most economists.....

How does one guess the unguessable....?!!......
