Market Drop and QQQ Bounce

Hey Traders,

Happy belated 4th of July to all of my American friends and traders at BBT, I hope you all had a great long weekend. The market was closed on Monday and it was the first Monday in a while that the market did not go down!

Today, the market gapped down due to recession fears and rising natural gas prices, as well as the mess in the EU. It traded very interestingly during the open, when the QQQ started bouncing back slowly, more than the SPY and Dow Jones Industrial index. Semiconductors stayed stronger than the rest of the market, and Brian and I traded them for a long time at the open. Be sure to watch my recap with Brian here.
