Es short term trading 7-19 -10


Numbers I'm watching on the upside


1069 Low Volume as per histogram


1073 - 1075 Pivot, High volume key number

1081 volume spike and 15 minute air pocket

downside numbers

I'm hoping to sell rallies with high $ ticks in the am..that's the plan if we open above Fridays close...but trade down into key numbers BELOW 1061 will be buys for me on low $ tick readings

61 - 62 lots of volume


47 - 50 key number previous volume


39 - 41 key breakout point

Hoping to revise these after I fire up my IRT charts

lots of wicks under 1062, a break above 1063 targets today's open 1065


ABCD move today:
1057-1063 => AB
1060.5 - 1066.5 => CD

so, a potential measured move target for this current up sequence would be 1067.5


There's my 1067.5, but again, I only caught a few ticks of this move.... not even worth reporting here.

Next stop is dbl top 1069.25


short 1069.25, TICK peaked at +1150 at the dbl top, target 1068

if they are to keep this day neutral they will try to close it, or at least retest 64.75...otherwise us faders are caught and they should try for 72- 73...I'd settle for the 67 first...
3 off at 67.25..that is develpoing Va high and 67 is peak volume for entire day!!.....holding two...back to 69.25 takes them out
That last 15 min bar came on 50% more volume then the 5 day running average.

First volume spike since the early morning.

I'm showing 1063 as peak volume for the day by about 8k contracts.

Am I doing something wrong?

so if you are a bargain hunter you want to buy BELOW value expecting it to get back in and sell above value.....these folks who suggest selling at a VA high have it all wrong...same with buying a VA low...be frugal and require you purchase or sale to be a super bargain!!

1068 was where my indicator started showing -ve divergence. I've observed that ES usually pulls back ~2pts after reaching new highs, so 1067 was my real target, but I decided to front-run that target because I didn't want to give up any profits nor retraces.....
Plus there was a mini-HVN near 1068.5, I figured a drop below that would cause some buyers to take profits.
this retest is critical
here is the gap for those who see dead people..!
