flat at 13.75..I don't like the way the ym came above that swing high but not Nq or ES...but close enough to 15 in this volatility...not trading till later


be back at Fed time...hoping to trade after announcement for peak volume surge....they get tested a lot after the initial surge up or down...
let me revise that POC final to 18.75...I think my tic data is squirrley today...new words by me..
