It’s relatively quiet morning thus far which gives us time for another exercise in tape reading. This time we are going to take a more in depth look at equities and cover a few tell tale signs that tell us if and when the market has transitioned into another distinct phase. Let’s start with the Zero:
I have some family obligations to attend to today so let me get right to the point. This may be day you’ve been dreaming of, your chance to actually stick it to the Mole once and for all and, assuming you finally drop that disgusting glue sniffing habit, go on to tell your grandchildren all about it. Do I have your attention now? I thought so
Yesterday I received a series of follow up questions regarding what now appears to have been yet another prescient tweet this time depicting a bullish divergence on the Zero. If you are new here and are unfamiliar with the Zero indicator then I recommend that you point your browser to the introduction, the tutorial, and most importantly the video section where you can enjoy dozens of recaps of past E-Mini trading sessions.
I know exactly how you feel. For weeks on end equities gyrate inside a 50 handle channel and suddenly we get a blast off out of nowhere. Annoying. But absolutely unavoidable and I recommend you don’t waste time emotionally chasing a trade which was largely bot driven and may be reversed at a moment’s notice. The Zero chart below shows us minimal participation throughout yesterday’s session and as such the advance should not be trusted. Congrats to you if you managed to trade it higher but it is probably best to not overstay your welcome.
