I am cautiously optimistic, have bee holding some metal stocks which have give decent return, it might be time to look beyond metal. IT space looks interesting. As for indices, I will be looking for buy opportunity on long side, some momentum building up need to see if any other heading wind. Looks for fed reserve policy commentary.

Good day and good trading, Sindbad off!
