A wasted session. Mixed results on the Opening Range plays and one loser on the ES that we did not re-enter. NASDAQ volume closed at only 1.6 billion shares to start the new options cycle.

Net ticks: -7 ticks.

A fairly flat opening in the markets and a really flat session as well until the last couple of minutes when we sold off. NASDAQ volume closed at only 1.45 billion shares, one of the weakest of the year.

As usual, let’s start by taking a look at the ES and NQ with our market directional lines, VWAP, and Comber on the 5-minute chart from today’s session:
