Santa Giving the Bears Some Heartburn.

Santa came late to the party but at least he showed. Since the ESH16 made its day session low at 1995.25 on Monday the ES has rallied 64.5 handles

I talked about the 3 higher lows and how I though as volume dropped the ES would rally and that is exactly what’s happing.

I also said they would mark up energy stocks and had they not this rally may not have been so strong.
End of year contest

As far as the Santa Claus rally— we define it as the last five days of the year and the first two of the new year— there could be another small sell off, but that will just help reload Santa’s sleigh.
