ES Monday 10-8-17 very rare event


wow...no plus or minus 4 and look at the profile.......we have matching highs and lows from Friday's session...my IB data has matching highs with "B, C and N" period but this isn't correct...Just "C and N" had matching highs......inside day with poor lows and highs.........will add to this on Monday morning...Columbus day so careful if you trade !

Long @ 2550 looking for 2558 before 2543
Mike ..why are you trading on a holiday even though the cash market is open ? Why are you buying into a key number the 2550? The real question is what is the compelling reason for this trade and what is the setup criteria that made you take it? Thanks
I take trades on CL, GC or ES when there is a day close outside last months range, followed by a pullback (LH or HL) and continuation in the direction of the breakout. CL and GC are valid setups twice per month (each following their own pullback) ES is good for 3 times per month. 10 points, 10 points and the 8 points as the month gets a little long in the tooth. Because of the holiday I shortened the target to 8 points but put a stop in. Normally I trade this w/o a stop.

The GC trade on 10/5 gives an illustration.

Took a shot today.

Good luck to all
