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 continued to maintain momentum from retracement off the intraday lows and in the middle of the prior day’s range. After the first bearish day of price action out of multiple day moves to all-time highs, we will be looking for the additional weight of evidence to show follow thru on intraday charts as we see from the daily chart 2 bar reversal sell signal.

With the confirmation of a lower high heading into the opening bell, our 20MA continues to be below the 200MA.

After the opening bell, price action moved below the opening bell and showed evidence of bearish momentum with lower highs and lower lows while being below the 20MA and 200MA. We took an aggressive SHORT based on price action forming lower highs and lower lows with multiple flag patterns. Once price action moved in our favor, we moved the stop to break even and then closed out of our position with 2.0+ points profit.
