S&P 500 (ES)

Today is Cycle Day 3 (CD3)…Price is holding firm bid above 2620 handle and is challenging PH (2634.25) pre-cash trade. Potential spring action would take price higher targeting 2639 – 2642 zone.

Nasdaq 100 (NQ)

NAZ was the weakest link in prior session as BIG $ took to selling driving price lower over 100 handles. This appears to be a shot across the bow with the likelihood of additional selling should price fail to recover above 6350 handle. 

Range Projections and Key Levels (ES)

Today’s Hypotheses: December 2017 (ESZ) Contract

*****The levels outlined below are more general framework within a larger range…They are to be used are reference prices from which to consider trade opportunities, not hard trade levels.

Scenario 1: IF price clears and converts PH (2634.25), THEN upside expansion targets 2639 – 42 zone.

Scenario 2: IF price violates and converts PL (2619.75), THEN downside targets 2616.50 – 2613.50 3 Day Central Pivot Zone

Trade Strategy: Our tactical trade strategy will simply remain unaltered…We’ll be flexible to trade both long and short side from Decision Pivot Levels. Continue to focus on Bull/Bear Stackers and Premium/Discounts. As always, remaining in alignment with dominant intra-day force increases probabilities of producing winning trades.

Stay Focused…Non-Biased…Disciplined  ALWAYS USE STOPS!

Today’s Hypotheses: December 2017 (ESZ) Contract

*****The levels outlined below are more general framework within a larger range…They are to be used are reference prices from which to consider trade opportunities, not hard trade levels.

Scenario 1:  Bulls will need to convert PC (2575.75) to solid support for the overnight rally to continue. IF successful, THEN upside targets measure 2579 – 81 zone, followed by 2586.75 cycle target.

Scenario 2:  Bears below PC (2575.75) will have session advantage to retest ONL (2567.75). IF successful, THEN violation of this low opens door to 2565 – 63 cycle violation levels.

Trade Strategy: Our tactical trade strategy will simply remain unaltered…We’ll be flexible to trade both long and short side from Decision Pivot Levels. Continue to focus on Bull/Bear Stackers and Premium/Discounts. As always, remaining in alignment with dominant intra-day force increases probabilities of producing winning trades.

Stay Focused…Non-Biased…Disciplined  ALWAYS USE STOPS!

Good Trading…David
