1 hour opening range, Stuck in the middle again, right at the middle of the overnight price range. In olden days I would have said looks like a boring range day but with news driven market and twitter I dare not say that. :lol:

Open question on yesterday, given today's lack of follow through:
1. Larry Kudlow using an experimental DARPA rainbow gun.
2. breakthrough in trade negotiations, we get someone who knows something from PBOC and they take Mnuchin and a future draft choice.
3. old school short squeeze

Amazon and DOD- tweet with picture of Bezo's in baseball cap and aviator sunglasses has been pulled. Lots of stuff last 24 hours or more in the media. For example http://thehill.com/policy/technology/381706-amid-trump-attacks-amazon-competes-for-lucrative-dod-contract. Bottom line it is a huge contract. Media says no one else is large enough to do the contract. Amazon claims a 50% margin on cloud services, doubt they will do DoD for free. Waiting for the fat lady to sing on this!

Best looking m,ove so far today on my fast tick charts but the overnight high has paused it. My guess is those London/Frankfurt traders lightening up 20 minutes before their close.

Aside from the fact that the DOD shouldn't be putting stuff on the cloud for security reasons (*), they have had they own computers for a long time - why would they bother even outsourcing storage at all with storage so cheap?

I really hate this "OH MY we MUST do the cloud!! It is SO like now."

(*)
Delliote lost all clients info (emails confidential contract details stored on cloud,
Equifax - how does one spell incompetence?
