The Russian installations and personnel are off-limits per a discussion between the US, UK, Russia, and Syria with agreement to notify Russia prior to attack.  The Israel attack was only coordinated with the US.  Both the chemical attack and aistrike on the Syrian airbase were designed to get the US deeper in the war.   Both Israeli and Indian papers are pointing to Israel being behind both attacks.

There's NO VOLUME... so there's no big panic here...

 

It might fall on it's own though...

 

This has been very flaky action...

There is usually a lot of back and forth after the minutes release.  All these events also coincide almost to the same day with the FBI seizing his attorney's files.

It looks like the consolidation could last another week. Too much uncertainty to rally.

When the bulls are in control the market is more resilient to bad news.  This looks more and more like a bear market and the market is very sensitive to bad news.............

This looks a lot like North Korea news.  Inspectors will arrive in Syria.  The site has now been secured as the jihadists have agreed to surrender their weapons to relocate.  Most of the US ships won't be in the area until May.

The market won't stay here for more than another day or two, the volume is too high at this price point.
