Yesterday's trading topic mentioned the single pritn of 1151.25 as the long signal from single prints if we were to trade down to it:

Well shortly after the open we traded to the low of the day at 1150.50 triggering that long with 0.75 point draw down on the trade. The high of the day was 1170.50 so the best possible run-up/profit on that trade was 19.25 points.

The other red dotted line that you see on the chart at 1158.25 was a short signal for single prints created on 9/9 but because we opened above it it was untradable and considered filled in.

The other single prints that I have on my radar are 1205.75 from 9/1 in L bracket (short) and a long at 1125.25 from 8/23. Neither of which are very close at the moment so unlikely that there will be a single print trade today (Wednesday).

ES overnight 14 September 2011
Reuters:
U.S. stocks zig-zagged, turning higher in a choppy session on Wednesday as investors reacted to a barrage of headlines from Europe, including proposals for joint euro zone bonds and an Austrian parliamentary committee's failure to pass changes to a bailout fund.
sorry for the delay....I just stopped in from outside from building my shed...a lunch break.....thanks for the support all....Nick I took the retrace back to the open ...I don't like the breakout from the opening range so I sold after I saw the buying dry up after we retested that open print...


let me know if anyone doesn't know what market profile traders will do on the opening range trade when we open outside of the previous days range....I will reply later as I am no longer trading today....

If I was trading I'd probab;y be thinking about another 1166 retest as that is low volume now!!

1173 key level, 1080.50 above and a target(38% 1362-1068)
1170.50 and 1166.50 below S levels here.
1172 the level to break hold as it could be the top of this wave
i am not familiar with what mp traders do when we open outside of the previous days range...

1180.50 retest from below broke and 1184.75 next R level to me.
1195,1198,1205, and 1215 above if it breaks and holds.
well, well, well...this here is the only resitance i have up here at 86.50 - 87.50 as mentioned in todays early trade....obvious trending and two sets of singles with the closest air at 82.25.....the signal needs to be real good to fade up here


in other words, I'd be real selective about shorting into this...make sure it rocks...otherwise they will try to run out those folks that want to see the 92 - 93 area and soon...

good luck...I'm getting back outside
sorry
1180 and 1197.5 corrections to previous post
