Complete Reversal....like you said Rotation ....the Market broke out above 81.60 up to the 81.80 Area , and did a Complete Reversal all the way back down to 81.......your Right you have to be Ready for anything.

Yes. " .the Market broke out above 81.60 up to the 81.80 Area". There is no such thing as market broke when it's ONLY 20 ticks. How about 50 ticks and never looking back. That's much easier to see and trade.

Does anyone has any doubts based off market internals this morning which way a trader has higher probability of success in TF?

short 1146 area. Cover some 1137. Added to short as TF came up around 1142 area. In the end we may end up with an UGLY rotation with ATR/OR but i am only interested in shorts as long as internals are -ve.

Over the week end i am going to set up my Charts like yours on my TOS platform from your post #888
i can use that also like you do to help when i Trade TF, NQ.
i will have to learn a bit more of what each chart is telling me, but it will be a start...i am not familar with the top row of charts in that screen shot.


ShadowTrader | Swing Trading, Day Trading, Pairs Trading, FX Trading, Futures and Market Profile

The site will explain how to set up internals and use them for TOS. I can not find area within site as to where it shows about internals. Send them an e-mail or ask TOS help desk.

Never seen that many on anyone........and have never seen this pair of individuals .....but i think there are folks that like to use their body as a canvas to express their self it seems.
LoL.....

While TF and CL can not seem to get out of their own way- KC is getting roasted.

Shorts turned out to be 5 points trades. 30 minutes ATR got taken out. Long 1146 and if 1154 area gets taken out, TF can run. Out some 1151.
