Early evening action for trading day 21 July 2011, single print holds.

(No I did not trade this. Yes this is after the fact. As I stated a few days ago I'm going to try and point out winning and failing single print trades. Although this is a great example of a winning one there are losing ones as well. I'll try and point them all out. Let me know if I miss any - both winning and losing.)
short on 41 ....better shorts will be near that gap fill if it comes above 42.50.....but we are done with the hour range is 38.50 volume
1341.75 is a "gap close" AND the next gap "bottom"
nice strong trend for longs....for now...!! any push up now won't hold now....IMHO....too much...too soon..
First decent volume. I am short 1340.25

best spot for failure as the minimum for a C wave has been reached.
I watch internals and except for banks, look weak to me right here.
Doesn't mean they can't run it higher. Price

runners trying for the 36 air but we need to be careful down there as there was a high volume node at the 34 - 35 area...some may try to buy in front of that....
Second Low Volume Node at 1334.75 is hit
