Pre-Market Analysis:

LIVE Detail Chart Analysis and Reviews provided in ES LIVE with digital video and audio.

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 continued to consolidate in the prior day’s range after the markets reopen Sunday afternoon. Using Fib Analysis, we also see price action in the hot zone (i.e., 38-50% levels) after the multiple days extended flag pattern last week and then price action broke above the upper boundary and retested it before slightly moving higher towards all-time highs.

Our 20MA continues to be slightly above the 200MA with price action oscillating around it heading into pre-market and the opening bell.

Every Day we use the following Scalp Trading Strategies…



After the opening bell, price action methodically moved higher with all the weight of evidence being bullish. We took an aggressive LONG entry based on a 3 bar reversal pattern, and using a tight trailing stop, we closed the trade at breakeven since the markets were choppy on the 1-minute charts. We then took several more LONG trades after seeing the follow thru and micro-managed them using a trailing stop for 2.0+ points multiple times.    

Duration: 5+ minutes

For ultra-aggressive traders, during the first-hour session, there were maybe 3 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.
