In overnight price action, the markets formed a 2X bottom (i.e., W-pattern) and transition to a mini market cycle phase 2 uptrend. After the first flag pattern breakout with follow thru to new highs, we patiently waited for the next flag pattern and we took several aggressive setups LONG based on flag pattern breakouts. Price action moved in our favor and we captured 1.0+ points profit on multiple occasions.

Price action then rolled over and transition to a mini market cycle phase 4 and we waited for confirmation of a lower high and flag pattern breakdown and took an aggressive SHORT entry and captured 1.0+ points profit.
