A dull morning that gapped up and filled the gap early and that was it, but the markets sold off in the afternoon.
Net ticks: +6 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:
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. This allows us to use 6 ticks as a key target as we do on the other contracts. It also keeps the value of a tick at $10, closer to the value of a tick on the other contracts.
Triggered short at A at 3710.50, hit first target for 6 ticks and closed the second half at the same price as it filled the gap there:
