Morning Market Briefing – Highs Again

Another week, another all time SPY high. While not exaclty surging with volume, both the SPY and QQQ made new all time highs on Thursday despite making their intraday highs in the first hour.  Friday morning pre market suggests a small pullback at the open. We put the finishing touches on our last full week of trading in 2020 today, as the next two weeks have half day Thursdays and off Fridays.

This weekend is a great time to lay out your trading goals for 2021. New trader? Consider setting learning based goals instead of performance based. For example, a goal to read a certain number of book or learn a certain number of new strategies instead of trying to make a certain amount of money.

From the entire team here at YouCanTrade, we hope you and you family have a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!

New highs but high of day came in the first five minutes. We’ll set 372.50 and 370 and short term support / resistance.

A little stronger that SPY, but same general price action on Thursday.
