Markets opened soft and put in a pivot low in during the first 15 minutes. We briefly dipped below $141.35 and S&P went in the middle of the 1407-1410 zone and popped back up.

At this point markets are still hanging around. With that said, there is still some nice action for cash flow. Metals are up three days in a row.
Banks are okay above yesterday’s lows. Casinos bounced back well.
Apple (AAPL) gave us a nice cash flow trade as it briefly went through $650.33 and came above. That is a RedDog Reversal. It’s $659 now, going as high as $660.68. If it wasn’t the end of the Summer I would hold size, but given the circumstances I will take a more cautious approach. I took the trade. Those wanting to swing it, the right strategy is to hold it and use $648.11 as your stop.
Google (GOOG) bounced back well today. Amazon (AMZN) is up. Some things are trying to hold in.
Disclosure: Scott Redler is long SLV, GLD (sold most), LNKD, BIDU (stop $119.80). Short SPY. Traded but flat AAPL.
