SPY continues to trade within a narrow range since coming off the high of Aug. 29. It’s a holding pattern, perhaps in anticipation of the coming three-day weekend. U.S. markets will be closed Monday for Labor Day, marking the emotional end of summer, if not the astronomical end.

I shall post The Week Ahead on Saturday as usual.

Tim Bovee, Private Trader tracks the analysis and trades of a private trader for his own accounts. Nothing in this blog constitutes a recommendation to buy or sell stocks, options or any other financial instrument. The only purpose of this blog is to provide education and entertainment.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
