ES Short Term Trading 4-21-10


Here's my Monkey S/R price levels from what I see. The Red lines are the "regular" potentially significant ones while the Magenta ones are somewhat significant, but a step down from the Red ones. Here's the 30min chart of 'em ... a map for Wednesday.

es sr levels for 42110
If 1201 can hold 1207 possible
1205.75 is yesterday's high. A key number for today.

out 1205.5 on my remaining contract. Flat now.
I didn't see 1205 as anything significant when i did my homework, does anyone know what was so special about 1205 ???
1203.5 possible
I sure do...vendors tried to capitalize on it too...one guy Mohan or something like that had it part of his HIGH five or something...

I think this is why I like using the averages and the previous highs/ lows etc......they don't change in the sense that a component may change but the traders still watch the cumulative data that the index represents...

Although I don't do it personally, I think it's a great idea to watch key market moving stocks...

Do you remember when Merrill Lynch was a key market barometer before it was delisted?

here is the carryover chart from my post in yesterdays thread. They will attempt to fill in this area on the chart with the 1202 being the key price.....It would have been a good trade but I missed the short....anyway this is the area they will fill in and the volume histogram to the right of my chart should become bell shaped


Here is how today is shaping up and how they are filling in that area...note the sideways bell shape...like any consolidation it will only be good for so long until it breaks....the smart money was selling high and buying low anticipating it would go back to the middle....Seems like lots of us where smart here at the forum today...nice trades everyone!


As I type they are breaking the pattern down .....

Will they make it to 1186
I don't think that will happen today Ak1 but if you are short then I hope ya get it..I'm thinking they are going back to 1200 - 1202 again but am not trading anymore today

Congrats to BruceM, MonkeyMeat, and KoolBlue - everyone got their fair share today, I take it!!

I saw that 1196 reversal, but was too scared to take the trade because:
1) I was already profitable from my first trade
2) that drop from 1203 - 1195 spooked me a little - I thought it might have enough momo to break below 1195. maybe I'm watching the screen too closely ?

Need to look up Dr. Brett (again)

Oh!I meant in terms of touching open, highs and lows. If Dow touches one and SP doesn't then we have a divergence that is met the following day. Just a trading bias for the next day.

Sorry folks yesterday's (20/04) open was 1195.75 not 1186. This level was finally touched.So if we notice any diversion between SP and Dow and use it to enter we may profit.
