Troubling Tuesday – Will Apple (AAPL) Earnings Be Enough to Save the Nasdaq?

$2,300!  

That's a nice win on yesterday's Oil (/CL) Futures shorts this morning (so far, we're expecting $69.50 or lower) but it's NOTHING compared to the gains from Friday, where I said to our Members in our Live Chat Room (as well as our Morning Report, which you can subscribe to for less than $3/day):

Things seem to be holding up so far.  /YM back to 25,550 and also /RTY 1,700 along with 2,845 on /ES and 7,440 on /NQ so shorting the laggard but favoring the /YMshort still.  

/RB testing $2.17 makes a nice short into the weekend but might push higher first. 

/KC back to $109.50 so I like that long and that's $121.20 on /KCN9

/SI below $15.40 so long there if it goes back over (only) with very tight stops below.

The Dow fell back to 25,300 for a gain of $1,250 per contract, the Russell (/RTY) fell to 1,655 for a gain of $2,250 per contract, the S&P (/ES) fell to 2,800 for a gain of $900 per contract, the Nasdaq (/NQ) fell to 7,200, for a gain of $4,800 per contract, Gasoline (/RB) fell to $2.11 for a gain of $2,520 per contract, Coffee (/KC) rose to $112.50 for a gain of $1,125 per contract and Silver (/SI) flew up to $15.55 for a gain of $7,500 per contract.  

That day's report was certainly worth $3, wasn't it?  Of course, those trades are usually exclusive…
