Planning for next week; here is a summary of upcoming economic news.

If the market is within our guidelines and there is sufficient credit for a decent trade, we will consider entering the weekly SPX Iron Condor Thursday. If we do enter, this would be testing the early entry once again, for the March 3 cycle. At these record-high levels, it will be a very cautious trade entry if we do move forward. There "could be" a pullback at any time, but there is also the reality that there is no stopping the bullish stampede which would not be kind to the weekly Iron Condor.
