Top Trading Links: Markets Uneasy In October

Aaron Jackson

For the week, the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) fell roughly 1 percent. That’s not all that bad considering what might have been… or perhaps, what’s to come.

On Friday, the S&P 500 briefly broke key support at 2120 before recovering and finishing at 2132. Some are classifying this as a hold of support, while others see this as technical damage.  Either way you slice it, traders have a line in the sand to trade against.

If that level is breached, traders & investors will need to have a plan and follow it.  This is an effective way of managing our emotions (i.e. keeping them out of our trading).

Below are some really good trading blogs with insights into the latest investing research, news, trading, and education.  Enjoy.
