Pre-Market Analysis:

LIVE Detail Chart Analysis and Reviews provided in ES LIVE with digital video and audio.

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 for the ES Emini Futures formed a 2X top (i.e., M-pattern) heading into the late day session and then in after-hours began moving lower with a series of lower highs and lower lows inside the prior day. Price action continued to move into the lower 1/2 of the prior day’s range with multiple flag patterns heading into the opening bell. Price action continued to consolidate around the 20MA < 200MA heading into pre-market and the opening bell.

During pre-market, after the confirmation of lower highs and lower lows, we took a SHORT with minimum position size based on flag pattern break down, and we moved initial stop to break even and using a trailing stop, we took 2.0+ points profit.

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 down and closed below the prior day’s low. We took several ULTRA-Aggressive SHORT entries and micro-managed the trade for really nice profits.

For ultra-aggressive traders, there were easily four (4) aggressive entries with the first three stalling before the fourth SHORT setup finally broke down and provided very nice quick profits.

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