Can The Ceiling Hold Us?

If the bulls want to breach the current ceiling then someone better call Mackelmore & Lewis, because as of now she ain’t budging. After a pretty annoying and range bound session yesterday we remain pinned below 1940 which is an intermediate hurdle before we reach real resistance below approximately 1980.

Setups!

We’ve got a nice selection of setups this morning but let’s catch up with equities first. There was follow through overnight but as emotions are running high and bear avatars are in short supply we’re now descending lower once more. Very productive actually as we just may be building an intermediate base here.

The short term panel is now suggesting resistance near ES 1890 which just so happens to line up perfectly with a brand spanking new NLBL on the daily. So if we drop a bit lower today and the Zero is favoring a drive higher then that would be my target range. However if we run today then 1890ish is where I would start looking for a possible [...]

Swing traders and scalpers are encouraged to watch the 5-min panel for early clues – in particular price/signal divergences and lack of participation as expressed by a [...]

E-Mini Entry Opportunity

Conceding we have very little technical context right now I however do love the short term panel on the E-Mini right now. Without further ado – here’s our evil scheme for the day: Grab a small short position here until about 1960 (we’ll have to watch the Zero after the open). If 1960 gives then I’m long with a stop below the current spike low near 1940.
