The market is most likely anticipating a move higher, waiting for ES to find support . There are buyers for crude around 102.70. It's been so long since I could sit and watch all day I am questioning myself, and so I am flat.

If I could script the move; New shorts get taken out above 103.30, then volume sellers appear, then I re-enter short.

But, we could also see 104 before the close.


If I were up to speed I should have gone long for that...

Oh well, step one completed. I am short ready.

I confirm that there are some issues with the data for CL. Charts are always different every time you reload historical data... And there is a gap in quotation

Momentum is still rising, and no real sign of volume yet.

No one seem to want to participate in this area. The low volume suggests shorts are possibly scaring themselves out of the market.

But if this market is going to turn, it's going to require some decent volume. This market could "float" above the high if sellers aren't ready.
