ES does not seem ready to move up...
Coincidentally or not, this is the 50% of the move up.

Almost touched the POC shown earlier, which is to the tick the midpoint of the move up from 23. Hard to read this action due to low volume; no reason we should not get a good bounce, but something about the way it feels tells me the bears are simply lurking for a better price.

Yeah, I am watching the ES and Brent today. The reason I bailed out of the CL long (and lucky I did) was Brent was pushing on it's low, and then broke which seemed to pull CL with it. I have not watched Brent until yesterday, but the motion works nearly identical to CL.

I am still stiing here, flat. I missed a huge move down, but it did not fit my plan and I was not going to scramble to have a backup plan. So still watching.

I may actually wait until tomorrow. I can't count the times I have been one day early. Maybe the 2om rush will show something, but when I don't understand or was not prepared, I just watch.

I might actually buy the ES. It is hovering in the 2nd area of interest, and if it can hold as it is currently re-testing the lows, that could produce an interesting afternoon.

Sorry for late chart and no pre market chart. In my notes, I had 102.82-103.43 as resistance and 100 as support. As usual I let OR ( opening range ) along with Volume spikes let me guide.

I like this. Looks real fine to me. of course, if it was me, I would have got my 17 ticks and been happy with it.
