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



It will probably be a long time before we get that gift from the CME again. I, too, was an early bird and couldn't believe my lucky stars. The ES down limit and buyers (like me) sitting at 1255.75 taking alot more size than normal without fear of getting stopped out (as a precaution, I still had a 3 tick sitting there)! I traded this baby with impunity 4 times each for 3 points and shut down the platform before the opening. Unreal.

here is a close up for reference for some of those volume divergence trades I was taking today....

Great job Ruvan!! I did not know that the CME had this rule. And thank you Bruce for the link.
