some context first... a look at how this week is unfolding....basically same as context chart we have been using

double dist

still no test of last weeks close 85 % that 44.75 becomes real important as we go into the last two days of trade

8:30 reports tomorrow morning so won't even attempt to formulate a plan yet until after those hit the market....
This 40-45 area is so cluttered I can't see anything. I think I will stand by until we see 38(RTH low) or 47(ON high).
we hit into last weeks close overnight but that wouldn't count as per our statistic.........I'm refining my zones and a lot of this will depend on where we open but I am using 43- 45 as my first resistance zone...but we also have numbers at 46 - it may get tricky ...hoping it doesn't...this is assuming we will open under these two support I have 37 - 38 as thee critical area but one other area is 40.50.......not sure where we will open so I don't know about that 40.50 yet.....then below will be 32.50 - fill and swing low area

as a fader you should be more cautious as we have had two days that were inside to Mondays range and Wednesday was inside we may be tightly wound up and poised to trend in RTH...we will be opening under all the volume and time that has built up so far this week so I plan to more aggressive on shorts and less aggressive on longs...overall more cautious on all trades though...uncertain about that 40.50 is how O/N has shaped up against just yesterdays RTH session

if the first one minute bar tests 40.50 and closes on the high then I will try to buy that high break as long as we haven't traded above 43 yet ( if we get a big one minute bar into 43 then I won't try it)..otherwise I would like to try the buys at 37 - 38 and use that 40.50 as a magnet......other plan is that we rally up quickly into 44.75 and look for sells in the first zone mentioned above and try to use 43 as a target..overnight vpoc just shifted up into 40.25 so that is telling us something about that number
real aggressive if you take that one minute high close to the 43 target......keep it small if ya do it...
taking all off at 44.75..we are in the the LVn from yesterday....will look for shorts in here....hard part is that opening range low held and also On this may be tuff
s 44.50 and small..will take mulytiple tries
gheesh..only trying to target 43 and they won't give it to me yet
Day's vpoc just flipped to 44.50. Familiar place for it. we are treating yesterday as two separate days....we trade into the LVN above and came back to test the middle at 43....we really can't ask for more
not holding any runners now
took last off at 48.25...made us work 15 minutes xtra today but it payed off........a great example of how probabilities can hurt and help in trading...for me they seem to hurt more than help trying to get yesterdays lows...but we did use it to get the O/N a mixed review of probabilities for me today
