The Easiest Way To prepare for Scalp Trading the ES E-Mini Futures.
Price action reopened on Sunday afternoon and continued to show weakness from the multiple day mini market cycle phase 4. As price action consolidated the last couple of days sideways, momentum slowly moved towards the prior day’s low and eventually towards the 62% Fibonacci level for the initial mini market cycle phase 2 move. The 20MA continues to move downward with the 200MA above and converging lower as well. With the pre-market and the opening bell shortly approaching, we see price action retracing off the pre-market lows in a flag pattern heading into the opening bell.
