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 found some minor support as price action continues to consolidate inside the prior day’s range. Price action started to move slightly higher towards the prior day’s highs with a series of higher highs and higher lows as a result of multiple flag patterns heading into pre-market and the opening bell.


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

Immediately after the opening bell, price action moved slightly higher towards the upper boundary of resistance. After the 2X top, price action rolled over and crossed back below the opening bell and started forming lower highs and lower lows on the 1-minute charts. We took an aggressive position SHORT with a tight stop. Once price action moved in our favor we moved our stop to break even, and then took 1.0+ points profit from each ultra-aggressive flag pattern.

For ultra-aggressive traders, multiple opportunities for SHORT setups to capture quick profits.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, at least one (1) 3-bar reversal candlestick SHORT pattern presented quick profits.
