pre market plan:
open inside yesterdays value area. With the trend day breakout yesterday, would be logical to look for a range day today, possible inside day before continuation higher. while it is most important to buy weakness in a srong market, will prefer to look for long opps with a pullback. decent resistance with the o/n hi's confluent with 3 day vah, WR2, & MR2. just above we have YR2 & DR1 @90. Below yest value area, single prints at 77, support could come into play around weekly vwap as we fill in yesterdays short covering profile. market obviously o/b but that hasn't meant much lately. AS always, will study tick, if prices reach zones.

premarket zones have been annialated. would be nice to leave an excess high up here, however, all countertrend trades off the table until we stop one time framing higher.

trying a stab short here, filled at 91. tick divergence on 5 min, channel break on 1 min. volume seems to be drying up on footprint chart. stop over 93 new hi's

OK, trade happened to work out, unfortunately dumb ass me set a market order while intending to place a stop limit at new daily hi's. ended up losing a pt. Anyway, close to target now ib hi, 50% retrace of the day range & val. might be too much to ask for. got to eliminate these brain fart mistakes, could blame it on trying to get used to a new platform & dom. but no, more than a month into is no excuse. out

I'll chip in here as I am pleased to see someone discussing the $TICKS. The breadth divergence today infers a morning retest of the 1585 SPX level in the absence of a meaningful overnight catalyst. If 1585 SPX is not touched in the morning, and especially if 1590 SPX is held bid, then 1600 SPX into the close is the logical scenario.

pre open notes

open out of balance, value
below 4/10 val at 77.5 could fill profile to wvwap to 71 for support.

obvious resistance would be yesterday's hi's

* below DS1 @ 81.5, will watch open for skewed internals to alert for possible trend day.

SPX 85 failed bid infers 75 by EOD but probably need 85 held offer to release the hounds
