Morning Report – December 27, 2013

As we wind down to the end of 2013 the major market stock indexes continue to set records each day.

Every trader in the world knows that stocks are overbought, but shorts who are trying to pick the top continue to get crushed daily.  The chart of the NASDAQ shows how steep this move has been since the intraday reversal after the Fed’s announcement.

As long as index continues to make higher highs and higher lows, it remains in an uptrend. Read full report
