Long tailed doji on the ES and NQ too...

Friday 03/24/2017

Closing spinners, WR bars with long lower tails on the big boys...volume still elevated.
The NQ is posting gains...The MACD trends have been down for most of March 
and stochasti' are still a bit outside the over-sold "BUY" areas. 
So, off-setting bull/bear technicals showing on the dailies. But it only takes one positive day 
for the STO's to begin hooking up ... **** I say GAINs next week **** (correct albeit slightly)
Keep in mind,  Wed's Hammer-Harami did pause the slaughter ...
