ES has breached yesterday low. I don't want this reentering yesterday's range multiple times. Stop is now few ticks above ONL.

Hit exit at MKT and closed the trade at 14.25. This could go into gap zone but I feel this was too quick move down.

Carry forward few things - it had to test Settle before sellers showed up. Profile became 3 wide. These things point to liquidation by day timeframe sellers who were not getting paid.

Strong sellers would not need to wait for Settle to be tested.

good read of the market and good execution on the trade. I know I have trouble pulling the trigger at times so good to see you be able to pull it

Short from 19.75. So far it has bounced from 1t above ONL indicating more mechanical buying.
Next move below ONL might trigger additional liquidation.

I do. I took Dalton's intensive in January of this year and loved it. It is a simpler way of looking at the market and IMO a more practical way as well. My trading style (or at least the one I aim for) is very similar to yours and that's the reason why I follow your postings. You are doing a great job with the explanations and the readings. Dalton would be proud!

E period is an inside bar. Next possible trades to the downside are:
- F 1t E high and continues one timeframing down
- breach of E period inside bar
