ES short term trading 1-25-11


Boring, yet interesting day yesterday. The market, and this is important, proceeded higher ,against the seasonal tendancies (which denotes strength. Today, which is State of the union day we seasonally should be under pressure for one more day before things turn more positive tomorrow, We'll have to see what develops.Historically, state of the union day is positive overall for the next few days (higher today for instance 16 out of 20 times) . That would line up nicely with the more positive seasonals from wed on...Note also that the nas was leading on an up day, not lagging yesterday, another positive in my mind. Todays news releases are a wash in my mind with likely neg housing reports and a likely positive consumer confidence report.I dont expect any thing real dramatic today, but it seems possible we could be setting up for a positve last half of the week ,as speculated in the weekend preview.

great job,WS! i have a buy in at 1275.50, but it'll have to happen soon as i dont like trading at the end of the day.
Thanks Kool.

The trend is down for the day. I thought it will find some support in this area. Maybe it will. I'm very cautious to the outside. More comfortable taking shorts. Will see if gives me an other set-up.
