So we watched our ES 5 Minute Complete rules and Market Cycle Analysis conditions for evidence of setups from Candlestick analysis, chart formations and patterns and price action.

Overnight price action consolidated near the intraday lows and then started building momentum by crossing above the 20MA and continuing higher with a series of flag patterns and higher highs and higher lows. Pre-market price action continued higher to retest the prior day high area and cross above it. The 20MA continues to converge higher as it remains above the 200MA and from a birds-eye view, price action is starting to break above the prior resistance from the previous multiple day triangle pattern.

Similar to yesterday, pre-market analysis indicated a phase 2 upward momentum starting to build on the 1-minute charts heading into the opening bell. After the opening bell, price action probed below the opening bell and eventually crossed below multiple swing pivot lows and started to test new intraday lows. We patiently waited for confirmation of lower highs and lower lows and took several ultra-aggressive SHORT entries based on flag pattern breakdowns. Once price action went in our favor, took 2.0+ points profit several times.         

Duration: 10+ minutes

For ultra-aggressive traders, during the first-hour session, there were 3+ quality ultra-aggressive entries that could lead to quick small profits.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, there were 1 good candlestick or chart pattern setups for quick profits.
