ES 7-7-11


Sold into the 48.75...this is second post report air....with a key rat at 1350....looking for nothing but sells ...as usual...key low volume area is at 1344 so that will be the critical point to watch and also 46 as that is high volume point from O/N session

rburns, I have explained Footprint charts on this Forum before, so do not bother annotating now. But can answer questions.
In short, I watch for a large number of conracts (around 10K or more)to enter the market, and mark those price levels. I assume that a big trader entered the market - I call him Mr. BigWig. Blue or red color indicate wether enry was long or short. If my analysis concurs with the direction of the trade, I join it. Stop is usually small, as Mr. BigWig with his big order cannot take large stops. If he is wrong, he exits quickly and I often see it. If he is right, the trade continues until he exits, or runs into the Mr. BiggerWig.

Today MR. BigWig shorted a couple of times, but was squeezed up. That happens too. The trick is to distinguish initiating trade (Mr BigWig starting the trade) from responsive trade (Mr. BiggerWig passive order that absorbs Mr. BigWig's attempts to move the market).

I also mark price levels where big orders entered, as I imagine there would be residual orders on retest of those levels.

If you would like to discuss this more, please send me a message. I can be reached on Skype.
Thanks for the reply Lisa

One time framing is fast becoming one of my favorite setups. Like being long now @1347.75 based on the 10:30 swing low candle.



Out @1352.00

As good an explanation as any. Can be used on any time frame really.
Take a look at today's RTH session using 30-min bars...perfect one-timframe buying market.

Any time frame - days, weeks, month - but intraday is recommended to be limited to the :30's or the MP base
