We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Day preview

Morning

Looking at charts and struggling to find many areas of confluence, so it looks like will be a day of being cautious when its approaching those closest AoI. No figs out today either, possibly a v slow day! Have long bias but look for exhaustion at ETH highs, & RTs for long entries.

Heres 240Min chart, ETH 2min, and some levels have noted.

-----------------------
Mindful that during Europe/US session EU eqs are near key daily support levels and if these break then will be cautious playing a long in ES til see decent signs of demand. Saying that took a small long in Dax @ 10598 with stops below the support (along with all other retail!). I wouldnt be surprised if they test lows again today, looking for quick bounce into 40s.

Heres Dax Day chart and 5min entry. Close correlation with ES ETH also.

Dax close....

Dax did push a little lower than entry - PA straight after was heavy so was tempted to close and reenter ~lod, but only went 10t lower which was surprising for the Dax!

I have closed this @ 28.

The above chart is all sessions btw.

Quite interesting to note how tight the RTH uptrend channel is.....

Retail intra day dip buyers mainly? As Choke says on the elite thread may get some OTF back in this week which could upset this steady climb higher.

short ES 2206.25

Pilot short - dax looks ready to dump, but also tick div, struggling to even hit OR high let alone gap close.

Tight stop though as against trend.

Scratched - nothing happening.

out & flipped @2205.5 (3lot) - tick div, abs nothing happening, short in middle of range is silly, plus cldnt test lows.

well - that turned around quick. out @ 2208.5 avge ish.

reversed again @ 2208 but then bottled it. my target done for day. i hope theres some more opportunity - bit tight range though.
