  • 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


Good morning all

Bit of sell off late yest and stayed at weekly vwap/yest ETH lows through Asia session, with rally during Euro opening session pushing ES up (or vice versa).

Heres weekly vwap bounces as posted on elite ES thread.

Preview 2

My bias today is neutral really - despite uptrend, and more cautious about fading close levels with full size. Week vwap/day S1 96-98 but thats close, as mentioned 89-92s decent prev support & week S1, day S2, looks ok.

Def wont be as hasty as yest diving into a mid range ish trade just cos DOM + PA + internals - it has to be levels as well (minus DOM, do not look at DOM).....in my defence the level i shorted 1st thing @2206.50 was due to price not making a new HH so obv cannot be at extremes....but to counter - it was 1st 15 mins of RTH so it was jittery enough to hit stops w/o actually doing much. Good debate having with myself - guess thats the point.

-------------------------------------------
Having an issue with Sierra charts cancelling my stops when my limit gets filled. Perhaps when internet connection goes down - need to sort this out asap.

(I took a long scalp 30 mins ago @2201 initial bounce was gd but then everything looked heavy so i took a hit - down 1pt).

looks like we will be finding out how this level holds up very soon.

long ES 2197.38

small tick div, but gd vol defending that level - am happy to add another @ 96 & stop at 95.

targets - eth vwap+.

Still nervy about Europe jittery ness though - will be careful about scaling in unless decent RT.

was typing out: I am out of 1 lot just before yest vwap 2203.50 & i did some bad scalping lol, and tried to add but not much of pull backs.

then got filled remainer @ 2204.75.

That trade was quick +14.50 pts net 13.50pts. Shame didnt have full size on cos R1 wld have been my target.

Hmm done target for day and bit early in day.....so will look at R1 for fading if all else falls in line, but trading small size now w/ low RR. Pleased though.

PA


this PA is for another push higher - this could see up to 2210s.

tempted to go long 2204.50 with stop 1pt below but will wait for pull back, and go to gym.
