Mid Day Chart 8-18-2014

I see a gap up this morning that looks like a spike and channel pattern.  When you see a lot of small choppy bars that keep moving in one direction, it is often a very strong trend, even though it may not look like it.  Things could change at any time the way this market has acted lately, but for now the trend is up, so trade accordingly.
