US markets closed higher and create new high this week. There are also 2 outside days on Dow, S&P and 1 outside day on Russell for this week. This will have "washed" the weak holder for long and short traders. Fri closing with new high will have triggered SL for some short traders. Nasdaq is the best performer this week in US.
Have took partial profit on some add-on positions when broke pdl (previous day low) to protect profit and added some on positions on using LHF and Taos SL. The small gain this week is a good sign to me for markets to get higher progressively. Don't get too over excited, markets move up in wave form and not straight line.
