E-mini ES 2019/03/15 #ES_F #emini #sp500 #spx

Bull gap, mid range, opening range, 1P, BT, TRI, BP TRI, fEB, mDB, DB, bear CH, II
there was a bear CH from HOD, I didn’t mark that up

can see nicely how bears took profits after the double bottom just before the  cash index close, the large 2BR
after the cash index closed above last week, as a breakout bar, bears took final profits at the high of last week (yellow box)

daily chart
Always In Long (AIL) since 03/12
the bear signal bar triggered on the wrong side
more up and close above last weeks H
we missed the trend channel line (purple box) of the expanding triangle by a whisker (two or three ticks)
I expect that to be hit before we see bears show up again

E-mini ES 2019/03/08 #ES_F #emini #sp500 #spx

Bear gap, below LOY, opening range, misplaced RVB, 1fBO, DT, DB, DP

daily chart
Always In Short (AIS) since 03/07
gap down, but buyers in the last gap, the bottom tail is a bit too small for my taste to be a good RVB, also after 4 bars down
nevertheless today can be the 1CHBO (1st counter trend breakout in a channel, which is about to fail) in the spike & channel bull from the beginning of the year

small trading range day

daily chart

yesterday was a reversal signal bar for a stop entry in an expanding triangle (XT ) and today is the entry bar for that, a doji bar with no body (weakness), bears need a breakout tomorrow, we closed spot on at the 02/22 gap price 🙂
