Yesterday saw the market open within the prior day's range and push higher leaving a buying tail. Shorts appeared to be under pressure as there was little pullback and it remained balanced at the higher end of the range for most of the day until a further push higher forced shorts to cover and squeezed up to settle at 1900.
Direction for today really depends on how the market reacts around some key levels. Overnight has been strong but cumulative delta is fairly neutral. Apple earnings beat forecasts but China released the weakest GDP growth in 5 years.
