The Dax attempted to push lower (see above) but eventually buyers perceived those levels as value and we’ve since seen some good buying off the lows.

We have a selection of key data today at 8.30, 9, and 10am. Not forgetting FOMC minutes on Wednesday

The SPX is less than 1 ATR from all time highs, the Dow has some work to do and Nasdaq is leading the charge. Coke and Herbalife report later and I’ll be watching AAPL and TSLA particularly today as they apparently had a “secret” meeting last week!….

Good trading, keep short term price action in perspective.
