(No I did not trade this. Yes this is after the fact. As I stated a few days ago I'm going to try and point out winning and failing single print trades. Although this is a great example of a winning one there are losing ones as well. I'll try and point them all out. Let me know if I miss any - both winning and losing.)
Thanks for the chart and the explanation, DT

Yesterday, price tested the previous week's High (1327.75) and price was rejected.

Today, increased chances for some upside if the previous week's H acts like support.
this 34 - 35 is my initial resistance area for short fades today....lots of volume was here
air pocket into 30.50...reports gonna hit soon!!
that's early for a plus 1350 $tick reading!!!
1332 the level to use here and perfect touch off it there on the 1 min chart so far
1337 and 1340 above
so far, a classic diagonal and failure would need to break that 1315 double bottom level(diagonals create their own support)
under 1332, if so
1329.75 1324.5
FINALLY GETTING AN EARLY WARNING FOR POSSIBLE SHORTS UP NEAR 1338
Because we opened above the value area again, like yesterday, Market Profile theory states that the VAH (1324.50) should be a support area if we come back down.
TWO SETS OF AIR SO MY FOCUS IS THE THE 35.25 RETEST.....
equidistant move would go to 1350,which is also the downtrend line area from the 2 higher highs, can go higher.
not reaching it would be a failure and a warning
that's the use of the levels as having a target and the path to it are two different things.
personally,I'm watching the hour candles as this should be a 3rd wave if a diagonal
1332 key level
I think you have to look at the EUR/USD to trade today's ES
Thanks redsixspeed - appreciate the elaboration!
