Sept. eMini S&P Futures: It’s a “cover breakout sales” day so a Taylor Trading Technique Buy day is anticipated. Friday’s low of 1968.00 is the Buy day reference price; there was a low violation buy overnight. For the day session I’d look for another test of Friday’s low or a rally above resistance- for now that’s 1972.00 and then the overnight high of 1973.25. The 1976 area is the first rally target.
Sept. eMini S&P Futures: Breakout setup (NR7, doji). Watch the overnight low (1975.50) and high (1980.75) as the first breakout reference prices. Trade or Fade (my breakout trade advisory) has breakout levels at 1972.81 down and 1984.69 up.
Sept. eMini Russell Futures: Breakout setup (NR7); use Wednesday’s high and low as reference prices.
Sept. eMini S&P Futures: It’s an “exit breakout buys” day; this suggests we should look for a Taylor Trading Technique Sell Short day. Monday’s high of 1980.50 is the reference price for that trade. Monday’s close was far enough below the high that I would be cautious with shorts- only sell when you see downside momentum.
