Above consensus payroll numbers extended gains in equities as hope continued to spring eternal on Opening Day. Although, it was the first day of what is traditionally, a month associated with bullish seasonality (see below), there is cause for concern that Mr. Market may be pulling an April Fool's joke on all the bulls. The rally continues to be on waning volume and flat open interest, while the bond market appears to be pricing in an end to QE2, as the yield curve continues to flatten in expectation of the Fed’s need to control inflation. An end to QE2 and a subsequent tightening by the Fed would raise short term rates and as inflation concerns were abated, long term rates would fall, flattening the curve even more. While we have only one marker to compare where The Fed cut back on quantitative easing, the results are not confidence inspiring for the bulls. Post QE1, the S&P dropped from 1217 down to 1064, and commodities and crude were also hit hard, while rates rose. Is the economy strong enough this time around, to continue it’s “growth” without stimulus? Or does the Fed, extend the easing cycle with QE3 and we see $150.00 crude and $5+ gas at the pumps this Summer? I'm betting on the former, which is going to make me ever so vigilant of the possibility, that this April's market could be a contra-seasonal one.

Support is 1328.50 and 1322-20 below.

Still looking for an upside target of 1337.

Very light week as far as economic reports are concerned and earnings season is a week away

For now, equities are still a better place to be than cash, and the real momentum chasing may still be forthcoming in April. If the powers-that-be can manipulate an entire market, and engineer one of the greatest bull market rallies of all time, during a time when the economic fundamentals have been absolutely horrid, and global headline news is about one disaster after another, then yes, they just might be able to perpetuate the current asset inflation a little while longer. But they can only use the “forward looking” rationale for so long, before the laws of supply and demand catch up, and mete out economic justice, once again.

High Probability Opening Trade

The ES presented an opening range trade with a very high probability of success due to a confluence of resistance at 1332.75 (HOD).

Chart 1 is a Fibonacci extension drawn from Friday's low to Friday's high to today's opening which resulted in a 23.60% Fib extension @1332. 45, which also coincided with the RTH only R1.

Chart 2 illustrates the +2SD from the VWAP@1332.75.

Chart 3 shows a falling $TICK and $ADD offering confirmation that market participants were selling into the rally.

Comparing the Picture

This is my picture for ES. Price action is a little above the pivot range and the rolling 3 day pivot range (which includes the balance point). This makes up for a slightly bullish to neutral picture.

There are several support zones around 1325 (auction range), 1326 (fib confluence and balance point). Resistance can be found around 1333 (60 min auction range) and 1334 (fib confluence and 240 min auction range).

If price breaks below 1325, the next stop would be around 1320.50.

I only finished the multi time frame auction range indicator this morning. Something new.

The fib indicator is not available for free. And the colored ranges are just there to show off a bit, not needed for trading.

Friday's Value Area High was 1333. Price opened within previous value area. Classical market profile theory states that responsive action should be expected hence the correct play was to fade Friday's VAH. Price tested 1332.75 before falling.

Good point! When the market opens within the value area, it is showing signs of a balanced market. Trading from a responsive versus initiative mind frame is the way to go

Add 1333.00 to the list! One more price level to join the confluence of points previously mentioned.

Have a fib confluence line around 1329.75 (not shown). Below chart with a single indicator, analyzing price action.
