This commentary will focus on the first 60-90 minutes after the Opening Bell. However, our strategies can and will provide setups the entire trading day.

Overnight price action from the weekend consolidated below the prior day’s range and found minor support after the strong downtrend momentum from the last two days. Notice the mini market cycle phase 4 with lower highs and lower lows based on flag patterns and swing pivots.

From a birds-eye view, price action has found an upper boundary over the last few days and has retraced back to a prior area of support that previously was upper resistance.

Pre-market Economic news and reports very light today and should have minimal impact on the markets, but trade with caution since price action is in the all-time highs area.

Pre-market price action on the 5-minute charts is showing price action bounced off the overnight lows and crossed back above the prior day’s low before consolidating, finding minor resistance and rolling over back below the prior day’s lows.

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