Merged Profile

Below is the result from a 4 day merged profile as this is where we most recently have consolidated during holiday trade. The Value area high of this merge is 872.50 and the Value area low is 59.50. You may also notice that the 863.50 price has had the most trade through so far. This chart doesn't include today's trading. I think that 59.50 - 63.50 is the area we need to beat for any upside to take hold as we have the Va low and that Volume node. Current overnight high is 73.50 so it was fairly close to the merged VA high of 72.50.

In today's trading we have single prints created to the downside and through that high volume node. I'm skeptical because of the holidays and low volume but as most know we will trend many times after consolidations. I'm not sure if this counts. Anyway it's been fun firing up the old MP software for a change.

To make a long story longer: That 859.50 - 863.50 is the critical zone to watch.

Thanks for the chart. Yesterday we certainly came close to 866.00. It seems that that 861.50 was rejected as fair value and prices are in retreat. The next most likely support is the POC in the 830.00 area, the red spot indicated on Bruce's chart. The VA Overlay chart after last week's trade suggests that we are likely to retrace even futher, possibly to the 811.00 - 815.00 area.
Good trading.
Just took a short at 866...this is the big volume zone from the long term......not sure if it will have any meaning
LOL I am short at 866.5 from the RSI thread. That big volume area looks good any way.....We need a lower low on this last 30min bar.
If those folks who bought up the 60 - 61's don't defend that then we may actually have a good late in the day now...
I'm having forum problems......making me log in and downloading charts to my computer for some reasonp
$tick's closing high again! 800

Yeah, I always feel like trading at 3:30-4:00. I have always wished the NYSE would stay open till 5pm and close at 12:00-1:30. I think that would be a lot more movement i the afternoon. But then the other times I am in the wrong direction and just wish they would hurry up and close'em down for the day.
For once we are lucky perhaps. Of late much of the expected VA action has occurred in the overnight session. Now with failure to breakout above the key 866.00 we should retrace at least to the 832.00 area. If we break though that area on volume, and I think we will, we should make it to the 810.00 - 815.00 area before we get the next substantive comgestion..
here is the update........nice how it's been bouncing in will be interesting to see if we gap higher on monday and then sell off..this was taken earlier today before the late day selloff and rally

We had a break out up on yesterdays high Volume fed we need to see if we can attract Volume feeling is that they will fail on this breakout and we will get daily closes back below 867.....Sure hope I'm wrong for the longer term players like myself....I'll get a chart later
