ES short term trading 7-20-10


When i projected much lower prices,last weekend, few believed it. Everyone was looking for another 1100 test and higher. You probably wont believe what i feel comes next either! lol.. But enough macro crap, heres a snapshot of the near term ,going into the morning....

Definitely struggling with this 1062 area.
Lorn, see how on that last little pullback the red avg held it perfectly? (1058.75) now the plot thickens as that last 5 min bar was the expected cycle peak.. hopefully see some weakness over the next 20 min or so to get long for a run to 64.50-66...but we'll see
Yea I see it. Interesting that we are now past 11:00 and heading straight into the so called slow lunch period.

if we just continue up to there i'll sell it as it will likely be a prc sell
Green horizontal line target hit. Sooner than I would have liked.
yes Lorn...but please remembr this is all experimental for me...but yes to those levels...I have 65 - 66 as the real key now...

Bruce,

I've been fiddling with 60 min volume as per your comments. Here is my chart. I see 1062 has big volume going back in O/N and yesterday. Is this resistance? And if prices get through would you be targeting that 1064-1065 area with light volume?

Wll its not even close to a prc sell but i sold the projection at 1064.50, will add at 66 if necessary

My initial inclination would be to be a buyer at 1048.25 or a seller at 1061 or 1065-66. That could always change with price action , but thats how i'll play the early going..good luck all!
Gaming trades. Was looking for a pullback. Nice to hit but would have been better to add more. Greed...
Thanks for the posts Bruce.

I'll leave you alone to gets some rest up for tomorrow.
