OMG...what a torture session today....normally I would say tomorrow might be interesting but I suspect it might be only marginally better, Wednesday might be the good day...we'll see.

As far as spots to keep an eye on I still haven't spent much time figuring it out...

I'm going to post a chart later that will give a sense of the big picture.

817.6 is the launch area so would be somewhat important but the low is the stop

Bounced as I'm writing this

ES might be trying to tag 1384.75 before it goes up and stops dragging on my TF trade

Here is a chart with a footprint on it .....the pinbar with a following candle of same direction, notice it didn't pay anything/go anywhere.

That tells me that it will get visited again and actually be a midpoint for a trade.
Simply measure from the close of the second candle (the red line) to the high and deduct that same amount from the second candle close and you get your target of 818.5 in this case.

In the course of this trade another marker showed up which you can also see on this chart( not pointed out) but shows even better on my Kase bar chart which moved the target to 816.2

Some other time I will explain how that works but don't want to make this post to confusing.

As far as coming up with 824.1 on the long trade in action now, that's yet another explanation for later

By the way, 824.1 is a target and that doesn't necessarily mean it will turn on a dime there....it might go further...always look for PA before initiating a trade. That being said you could watch that area for something but like I said I will be looking to exit this long there and then wait and see.....

Wasn't pretty for sure but better late than never....will wait for next setup

Based on how it's played out I will watch 830.5 .....

It's into the 840's now... up, up, and away? Or back into the 820-830 range that's had such a strong pull?
