A sweep that stopped and then worked on the ER, and another nice setup on the ES that worked for the session. See both sections below for recaps. It wasn’t a very exciting day to start, with the market contained in a very narrow range on light volume (and a volume warning) for the first several hours. We did get a move later to the downside, and that stalled out in the last hour. NASDAQ volume was 1.6 billion shares.
Net ticks: +14.5 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:
Triggered short at A at 1868.00, hit first target for 6 ticks, stopped second half 12 ticks in the money at 1865.00:
Triggered long at A at 1118.70 and stopped immediately (a sweep), then triggered again in the next bar, hit first target for 9 ticks, raised stop twice and stopped the second half at 1120.70 for 20 ticks at the final exit:
