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 continued the bounce off yesterday’s lows and consolidated inside the middle of the prior day’s range while showing slightly higher highs and higher lows.

From a birds-eye view, price action continued the mini market cycle phase 4 with lower highs and lower lows on the hourly chart and remained above the prior multiple day range-bound area.

Pre-market Economic news and earnings reports starting to pick up as more are released, so we should be cautious of the major stock players impacting the broad markets based on earnings hits/misses.

Yesterday, we had several nice intraday healthy retracements (i.e., flag patterns) in the mini market cycle phase 4 with downside momentum.

Pre-market price action forming a nice triangle (i.e., flag pattern) inside the prior day’s range on the 5-minute chart.

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.
