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 retraced after finding an upper boundary of resistance as we had price action rallied with higher highs and higher lows with multiple flag patterns.

From a birds-eye view, price action showed a nice breakout yesterday with a higher low and tested the prior phase 3 resistance areas.

Pre-market Economic news and reports mostly focused on commodities-related activities, so we will be cautious.

Pre-market price action on the 5-minute charts rolling over and retracing inside the prior day’s range and in the upper 1/3rd of the prior day’s range.

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.
