1255.50 is first ES Limit level, trades are blocked below that price until the level is lifted and prices are permitted to fall to the second level.

I took 3 trades off the level so far overnight/morning, had one that I was the only bid on the price for probably 5 minutes... lol

... at least until the Fed cuts rates out of the blue


given the volatility, i'm taking a very simple scalpers approach...trade with the momentum, bank ticks quickly, and move to the next setup...
speaking of the

I think that's some of the biggest overnight market action that I've ever seen in terms of volume and size of move.
I actually just attempted a short at 1309.75..trying to get to 1301.......volume had dried up big time on that last swing
Great job Ruvan!! I did not know that the CME had this rule. And thank you Bruce for the link.
