Yesterday’s price action oscillated around the 20MA and in after hours and overnight, remained inside the prior day’s range. The 20MA continues to flatten and converge lower while remaining slightly above the 200MA. An upper boundary or resistance from overnight price action continues to hold down the markets heading into pre-market and the opening bell.

After the opening bell, price action was very choppy and volatile before a significant reversal of momentum with price action crossing back below the opening bell and continuing the mini market cycle phase 4 from pre-market. We patiently waited for confirmation of a lower high and price action breaking down below the lower boundary of the flag pattern and took an aggressive SHORT. Momentum went in our favor and we captured 2.0+ points profit.
