blue dotted line - with the yellow circle -is trend line - dropping slightly left till a higher high is put in - up trend in tact till this blue dotted line broken - super high risk trade up at this level -another good reason to exit

i believe today is a trap day -

the break of 1314.50 shows down side -but i would still like to see a push on the current short stops to the 1328.50 area for 1 last cleaning -time will tell -but for me it will be very careful trading today

notice the yellow oval - the s/r line of the first low - see how it never closed above it - this is why it is best never to guess or think you know what will happen - a new low has now been put in which will change the trend line
