I wanted to buy there but it got away from me. Will see if comes back for a retest and if my buy set-up is congruent with it. I will buy. It's going to go back to test that 1194.75. I got to wait for a good set-up.-.
Will see.

these comments are made about logic and not specific trade setups.

This morning we essentially tested the peak volume price from yesterday and we have tested the upper edge of the bell curve after busting through it and it has become support in the 86 - 88 area.

The peak volume price from today is 91 while yesterdays was 82.50 so we are having volume come in to the market at higher prices.

Structurally this is pointing to higher prices into the end of day time period.

as usual anything can happen and does....I'm just pointing this out from a market logic view.

This post falls into the "fun" category as we can still have our key areas and trade them regardless of what we think SHOULD happen.
from 83 to 87 is still wide open to close in Y or N
you sitt here and look at this picture of it
bring 2 days together == 2 bell curves
sorry Della missed this earlier..I was in a trade...I got this from 9-21...I basically ask the following question always:

When was the last time we traded near the current area that is closest to todays date ? Then I just look to see when we traded above the current market last...this was 9-21 so I begin looking at either my notes or my volume profiles in my market delta charts..

I disagree..two days gives you high volume at 83.75 and a bit higher....two days combined gives you a real fill in spot only at 85.75 - 86....so that is the test to watch...if that gives way then they will push it back for 83.75 and lower..

all those players that supported the 86 area...what happens if they no longer are interested in buying....? We will drop down to the high volume..

I look at the two bells like this....

one is bounded by todays highs and the 1186...with 91 area as peak volume


the other is bounded by 86 and 1180 - 81 with 83.75 as peak volume
great see that thanks alot
