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 show strength from the mini market cycle phase 2 and remained in the upper 1/3rd of the prior day’s range. Pre-market conditions showing price action slowly staying above the 20 MA. Price action consolidated overnight in a flag pattern and watching the 1-minute charts did a retest of the upper boundary of the flag pattern. With all of the weight of evidence continuing to point towards upward momentum, we took a LONG position. We used a conservative trailing stop since price action is above the prior day’s highs, above the 20 MA and continued to be in phase 2 with higher highs and higher lows. The pullback stopped us out with a 1.5+ point profit.

Duration: 16+ minutes
