March 14th. Will stay on the ES March contract today
I started the day on ES 03-12 and it is too late to change if I want proper replay data recorded. If it goes up, I like 1405.75 and 1413.25 levels on the March contract. I think the importance of the 1400 level will be lost for me today, since I am on the wrong contract. Good luck!
ES March contract - if it moves down maybe a bounce at 1390.5?
I had an email with news about crude oil inventories at 9:30am and the sudden move happened at 10:30am, which is the time I remember for crude inventories anyway. The times in my database must be wrong :s. Damn!
Some good scalps today so far on ES March. I had $158.92 in the bank and a short trade at 1395.25, entered at 11:10. From what I can see on my phone, it would have given me another point, but the Internet is down now... ;(
NT won't back fill the charts with the missing bars once IB reconnects. I guess, from NT's point of view, the local connection with IB was never down. My issue is that the chart is not accurate now, so the signals are unreliable.
I had a first trade stopped after NT reconnected, so I don't know if that signal was bad because of my indicator or because of the missing bars. Oh, well. I will run the reply anyway.
Back to $150.88 and will disconnect NT and reconnect for back fill.
On the ES June contract, 1385.00 is the equivalent target for the measurement that got me 1390.5 level on ES March, which just worked for a bounce of at least 2 points so far. Since June matters more than March now for these levels, I am happy with the prediction. I need to add this kind of entry type to the indicator. Unfortunately, with real money, since I decided to stay with the March contract for today, I was waiting at 1390.5, which was missed by a tick.

I thought it was safe to follow the action on QM to know what CL is doing. It seems I cannot rely on QM and should get my signals and levels from a CL chart, but place QM orders, if I want to keep the risk low(er).
Here is one example for what happened on the 10:30 news bar:

@Pajot, Yes, even I've had some bad experience while messing with QM, I'd say the CL is much better to play with, and signals should solely be taken from their respective charts. Have you tried using a 440 tick chart on CL, give it a try, maybe you'll like it, play with the fibs on 440 tick chart and you'll find the point where it turns, there are some really good fib no.'s that CL like to follow!
