Market’s overnight reaction to the stimulus deal was to pull back into the open. Of course that could all be recovered in the regular session, but right now it’s a “sell the news” event. This was the last ‘known news’ event of the year, but 2020 still has 2 more weeks to surprise us. With a couple of short weeks on tap, many retail swing traders will use this time to wind down their portfolios and go into the new year with as much buying power as possible.

This week 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!

Friday’s session rallied late, but still a decent sized red candle. Early Monday action indicates a lower open, with a test of 363 support.

A little stronger that SPY on Friday. 300 is the next level of support on a further move down.
