After the opening bell, price action consolidated on the 1 & 5-minute charts, around the opening bell and then reversed with price action crossing above the opening bell and providing some early entries for ULTRA-Aggressive traders.

With the 20MA > 200MA, price closing above the opening bell, there were several quick LONG entries for quick profits.

With it being the beginning of the week, i.e., Monday, we decided to sit on hands and patiently wait for more confirmation of momentum moving in a direction.

For ultra-aggressive traders, there were at least two aggressive entries for quick profits.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, there were no good candlestick or chart pattern setups for quick profits.

Duration: none

Extra Trades:


Today’s price action was mostly choppy and non-directional, similar to last week.

Still enough opportunities for ultra-aggressive traders to get at least 5 – 8 scalp trades for quick profits.  Higher timeframes confirmed lack of momentum and direction with overlapping candlesticks and very little price movement in any direction.
