ES Short term trading 12/09/10


Finally, the ES was able to close above 1224.75. As long as it holds, then the objective is at 1235.00 (Test of Monday's high) and possibly higher up to 1249.00 in next few days.

The above objectives will be void if the ES moves below 1224.00

Note: Keep in mind today's high as a SR. (1229.25)

As always, the market has the last word and in due time will show us the way.

For today's trading I would NOT suggest using the continuous contract. I would switch to the March contract for rollover because otherwise you're comparing yesterday's highs and lows etc. from the previous contract (Dec) to the one you should now be trading and seeing on your charts (March).
Ireland downgraded, Euro has started to tank how is the equities? Another crisis? Same scenario as flash crash back in may...
LOL there flat...which is why it's better to be a news trader in Currency.
Overnight the ES (March) made a high at 1233.00.
Day session was not able to stay above previous day high 1229.25. and now is testing the 1224,00 area.
If below 1224.00 then I'm looking for 1221.00, and 1217.00 as objectives.
Will see, what it has to give us today.

I think as long as we can stay below the 27.50 - 28.50 area then we should make new lows and perhaps if those rolling over get it together ( supplying the market with some volume) then we can have a really good sell off....I'd prefer to see price hanging below that O/N low too and build volume UNDER there

Today the market gapped higher open and we had that nice retest of the OR high from the 50% gap fill and then sold off again...so structurally that is good for shorts and we broke the hour low...naturally anything can happen and does so we shall see....
Notice that the ES tested the 1221 area or R! and now is back up trying for the PP 1225.00

I'm looking for one more test of 21. Failure here then 1217 is next and possibly 1213.00.

Above 1227 will void the above objectives.

If they exit December it will still show up in the CD.
