Published 3/1/16 8:26 am central:
We have had a 20 point range in the overnight. We ended the day yesterday with the bulls taking control at the end of the session. During the overnight session, we saw some of this negative momentum carry over with us trading down to the 1920 handle. It appears we spent several hours at those prices late night early morning and then we quickly moved higher back into the 1940’s. we have been trading in the mid-1940’s the past few hours with the high in @ 1947.50. So we were not able to challenge the 1950 level we broke yesterday and the previous session highs. Crude oil has been grinding higher and broke back above the $34 handle. it tested $34.50 and has since retraced back to the $34 with a sell zone near this price and 33.90. I think if we get some negative pressure in crude and it trades back to the $33 levels we will see the ES market challenge the 1925 prices.
Looking at the Market Action Scanner, we are seeing a divergence on the 60 min vs the 240 min. I think these are signs that we do not have a definitive short term trend in place. I think that makes since as we made new highs yesterday and sold off the end of the day and have grinded back higher early morning. Looking longer term we are still on the daily Top level, so it would be nice to start seeing new boxes to give us some new ranges, but until we close above these 1940’s we probably won’t see that. I still think the 1918 weekly POC is in play as well as 1908. If we do get short today or in the near future around these levels, those will be my target areas.
On our 30 Min SnapShot chart, we are right near the buy zone on the highs. I want to wait and see where we go after the cash open before we jump on here. We have spent a lot of time near these levels and think we could see a slight dip lower. I would rather buy after we shake some of these current longs out. The sell zone is near the 1934 level, so we will need to see us move 10 pts lower before that comes into play. We will see how the open plays out and where the trading volume comes in. I can definitely see us grinding hire and getting people attempting to short these levels and stopping out and pushing us higher. be careful trying to short these highs from yesterday just for the sake of them working yesterday. I will do my best to send new updates on levels when they occur.
