After the opening bell, price action consolidated on the 1 & 5-minute charts, around the opening bell in a triangle chart formation and then broke to the upside for a short-lived move. We took an ULTRA-Aggressive LONG entry based on a flag pattern breakout and retest setup and micro-managed the trade for 1.0+ points profits.

For ultra-aggressive traders, there were probably (2)  aggressive entries very quick small profits.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, there was at least one quality intra-day high breakout setup on the 5-minute/15-minute charts for small quick profits.

Duration: 10+ minutes

Extra Trades:

Price action continued to show strength the majority of the trading day with momentum providing a series of flag patterns with higher highs and higher lows.

ULTRA-Aggressive traders could have easily traded with the markets and had at least 9 scalp traders for some level of really nice profits.

With price action breaking multiple prior day highs, starting to see a change in direction from the previous few days.
