Wow, what a dull session even though volume closed at 2.1 billion NASDAQ shares. What is going on here the last three days?

Mark’s call triggered short at A at 1747.00 and stopped for 7 ticks:
Just a reminder that we use half points for ticks on the NQ and not the quarter point measurement that the exchanges switched to in recent years.

Triggered short at 3374.00 at A and stopped just by a tick quickly after the sweep. Triggered again, hit first target for 6 ticks, and stopped the final piece at 3370.50:
