The markets gapped down a little and filled early and didn’t do much all morning or into lunch. We were sitting flat for the session coming out of lunch and then moved up (perfect ES Value Area play) and that was the high on 2 billion NASDAQ shares.

Net ticks: +15.5 ticks.

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:
