[09:29:18] <guy> 10:30 ET
[09:29:36] <guy> From yest. close to overnight low there was a 17.1 point drop
[09:29:38] <guy> in ER2
[09:29:59] <guy> Now, at open, Looking like a 7 point drop
[09:30:06] <guy> so we've recovered 10 points
[09:30:20] <guy> opening range trade dictates that we trade back towards VA
[09:30:27] <guy> so classic trade here is a long

[09:38:31] <guy> Shorts ER2 @ 644.3

[09:44:30] <guy> Covered all Short ER2 at 645.3 --> - 1

[09:54:20] <guy> that last short was based on alpha and was too early
[09:54:35] <guy> alpha still says short here and i'm trying to find a safe short entry...
[09:54:43] <guy> to re-enter short with a small stop
[09:59:38] <guy> .
[09:59:47] <guy> well i messed up a good setup there
[09:59:55] <guy> Very good and strong signals from alpha
[10:00:02] <guy> and this is the sell-off that alpha was showing
[10:00:22] <guy> In this next chart
[10:00:33] <signal>
[10:00:44] <guy> you can see that the 3 white bars in alpha and confirmation with k-line
[10:00:53] <guy> show a very high probability sell off in the ER2
[10:01:18] <guy> I was trying to re-enter that short at 647.0 and hoping for another spike to that level
[10:01:23] <guy> but no such luck
[10:02:10] <guy> i'll monitor alpha and k-line and see what they read on the next spike to HOD
