Not real wild.
If you check how much they had to drop the dollar, we should have been up double digit on the ES... but we barely gained 5 points to 1407.75$. This reassures me on my longer term short position.

Also, today, tomorrow and thursday we shall see an increased volatility in the market, and increased trading volume as yesterday was the lightest day of the year.

So this would bring some selling... Will watch and see today's action, then evaluate whether I continue to hold or cover my position.

Monitoring $ is a good idea -- gold, $, ES, all correlated.

I'm following US dollar correlation too but to Canadian $ --and so far there was a little movement.
thx

Well since you are trading the ES on US markets, I'd say you follow the DX then.
They work inverse to each others.

Keep the VIX on your radar too; it will show you fear sentiment and how it correlates to price action.
Comes handy at time :-) and I also monitor CL and GC of course for the full picture.

Seasonal fluctuation in ES

I've posted this in https://futures.io/index-futures-trading/22280-where-will-es-s-p-500-futures-contract-year-now.html but I didn't get any response due to low traffic.

Anyone has a seasonal fluctuation in ES chart for the past 10-20 yrs, similar to the one I've included for gold?
thanks

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
