ES Thursday 9-22-11

It's always after the Fed. where the good trades unfold. The 1169 extreme support and objective posted this morning got blown away and the ES close 14 points lower at 1155.75.

Tomorrow I will be looking at the following numbers for trading set-ups.

For the outside: I will look for the market to move above 1156.25 and use it as a "platform" or support for my next objective at 1169.50. Overcoming 1169.50, then, that will be my next support to work from for 1179.00 objective. Overcoming 1179 will set the stage for 1186 objective.

For the down side: I will look for the market to move below 1151.75. Then use 1151.75 as a ceiling for my next down side objective at 1143. Below 1143 will be 1132 as next objective. If the ES moves down to 1132, It's possible that will extend to as low as 1123 looking for support. -- 1123.50 is also Sep. 12 low.

In a nutshell here are the numbers for tomorrows session. The bold numbers are important S/Rs. the others are minor s/r. If you find congruency between the numbers posted below and the ones you got, and the market is trending in that direction, then it's most likely the market will hit it.

For Sep. 22.. Thursday

Buy above 1156.25
with 1160.50 / 1165 / 1169 / 1179 / 1186
Extreme 1194
as outside resistance and objectives.

Sell below 1151.75
with 1147 1143 / 1139 / 1132 /
Extreme 1123 / 1113
as downside support and objectives.

As always, the market has the last word and in due time will show us the way.
I see for you the same I see for my self: having the very best of luck and a fun, profitable trading day!
IF we go thru 1111, 1203/1096.50 is the next S/R zone...
I meant 1103.. I'll likely not trade again today unless we reach another level and test down successfully such as 23.50
20 is a tempting buy too
doji on 240, market is at a pivot level..
I still need asprin (to MUCH)
Della, if you goto the 240 chart, just put a line @ all the prominent lows.. the market is usually good for at least 2-3 points at those levels the 1'st and 2'nd time down, hard to say if you get more but if you trade 3 contracts, you can scale out and hope to get lucky, that's all.. A 2 pt stop should tell you if you're wrong..
That's the premise, if you can get a couple of other signals to confirm, then you just take your chances..
Geithner: there is a lot of strenghth in global economy.

Guess market will react to that
The market is likely to test down because its likely that traders were closing positions b4 the FOMC announcement and resumed their position after which is clearly to the downside.. how far down is anybody's guess but we do know how they are positioned...
Its an A down day.. but can't short into this.. I wished I was bold enough to take a short position in globex and just went to bed..
Thank you from me too Bruce!
