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 consolidated in a triangle pattern in the middle of the prior day’s range. After finding minor support during regular hours, and breaking down below the prior day’s lows, price action rallied and crossed back above the prior day’s lows and the opening bell.


Note: 20 Sessions can be scheduled over multiple weeks or months.

Immediately after the opening bell, price action reversed above the opening bell and showed some follow thru, so we took a minimum position LONG with a tight stop. After two consecutive bars of no follow thru, we closed the trade with a small loss of 0.5 points.

For ultra-aggressive traders, no setups this morning with extremely tight intraday range and the upper boundary of resistance.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, because markets are not trending, all candlestick patterns did not show any follow thru, so no quality setups this morning session.

Duration: 8+ minutes

Extra Trades:

Price action finally rolled over, crossed below the opening bell and started forming lower highs and lower lows while remaining under the 20MA. We took an aggressive SHORT and using a trailing stop, we micro-manged the trade with the flag pattern swing pivot highs. We closed the trade with 2.0+ points profit.
