Being statistically overdue a pullback along with a down Europe wasn’t enough fuel against better than expected retail sales, providing a walloping cover trade to SPY R1.  As volume comes out of that move, the confluence of range highs appears to be helping with a better push back effort going into the pm session.  With up and down volume evenly matched, I tried to play the reaction too early, but am back in for a short scalp.  We’ll see, with all the scared bears seemingly covering on each down-tick.  Look at gold run!
