We're at the same levels we were at on Tuesday (a bit weaker), when we extensively went over the technicals, so we're not going to do that again. As you can see on the S&P chart, our short at 2,728 on the S&P Futures (/ES) is still holding up and we see no reason to change it today or over the weekend. Similarly, our big shorting hedge on the Nasdaq (/NQ) is still up $2,000 per contract (from 7,000) at 6,900 and our predicted bottom is a $10,000 per contract gain at 6,500 if "sell in May" becomes a thing around the holiday weekend.
