curious, you're running a 50 period simple moving average on what?

5 min bars

and are you using 24 hours worth of prices or just the RTH?

RE today's market... Looks like DB could only recapture 50% of the drop from 40 to 31. raises questions about action now.

50 day on the daily. Was wondering why you mentioned that. I now see on it wasn't an outside bar, however, I did switch the parameters on my chart between rth and 24 hours a few times. On the IB chart I have it's an outside bar. Not really sure how to export an IB chart onto my computer to show you. Does anyone else have an outside bar? Sorry if I confused anyone. I just refreshed the chart and it still remains with the high at 72 and low at 53.75. Maybe when I changed the two it did something weird. IB can be a bit weird with their data sometimes. It was still a bearish enough candlestick on the 50 day sma on the daily chart to signal getting short in my opinion.
cm19, you don't have to show me, I have an IB account. I thought you were looking at intraday chart, thanks for the explanation...

Today's market, AIR apparent now back up to 1130 handle.

Not very convincing for the bulls.

Price has printed inside the low volume area of the overnight
done for the day

good trading to all
WELL, I THOUGHT THAT ENTRY AT 1125.75 WAS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.. took one off on the uprush to 1127.50 at 1126.75 for plus one ,but stopped on the other at 1123.75 for a net loss of 1 handle.. still up nicely ,if i dont give it all back!
as long as you learn when you give it back. Saying that always makes me feel better

Looks very similar to the chart formation in early Feb on the daily. I wouldn't be arguing with the market right now. I agree with Kool that yesterday was a dagger in the heart of the bears. 40 is still immediate resistance then 55. See how the news is received. Looking for bearish news to be discounted the more of the same candlesticks. Low opens and high closes. A couple of those strung together and its time to get heavily long. Might miss this move, but that's the ideal set up for me.
