Trumps Tweet on the F-35





This came out at 7:46 am



Backdrop: LMT Price had recently double topped off the $270 target and was already in the process of correcting when the tweet came out making news. This double top capped of a very nice post election rally plus surprise word that future growth at 7% was possible. "Buy on the rumor and sell the news...." Remember that one?

Summary: After the news making tweet, an orderly sequence of activity took place, demonstrating the strength and depth of the market as well as the market's ability to make a profit trading under the guise of "the news".
