Summer Friday....I'm waiting to see what happens if /when they run those double 30 minute bars from YD nto 95. Low range 15 minute bar covers near that 91 number...they also like to run a 90 minute low or high most days except very big IB range days.....I just don't like buying or selling in range so just watching right now
Europe closed flat mainly and bank stress test results after close.

what the hell is going on?

look at total volume , like 1.5 million...

I'm ready to just shut down for the day.

I usually stop trading at 11am on fridays in the summer, thin volume can make for goofy moves (at least that's how I rationalize it).

good luck to all (it couldn't hurt)
example of extended 5th wave, if not the 1st of five up, should retrace back to the 2nd wave. break the top and probably higher unless a B wave of an ABC correction. Did I mention this stuff was deceptive?

I wasn't around on Friday but I'd like to share some observations on the trading day after I've studied the action.

Here is a 60-min foot print chart of the entire session on Friday beginning with the globex open Thursday evening, you can see the Thu 7-22 on the starting grey divider.

The first thing which jumped out at me was only one close on a 60 min basis under VWAP for the whole session. (Marked by black arrow).

Second is the area marked by red arrow. Notice how the last 60 minutes on Friday traded down and into this low volume valley before heading to its closing highs. I'm not really sure what that means exactly but from a MP perspective it seems the breakout from earlier in the day left the valley needing more time with prices in it. (Does that make sense Bruce?)

That volume build between 1099-1096 shows acceptance of price but volume quickly fell off above 1100.

Clearly VWAP supported the bullish case today even though it was a fight in the morning session of RTH.
