Published 3/30/16 8:05 am central:
We saw an outside reversal day higher yesterday, based on the dovish comments made by Janet Yellen during her speech about hiking interest rates. The equity markets were positioned to challenge recent lows when they just appeared to be getting stonewalled, and shorts accumulating. When her comments were released equities popped higher and didn’t budge or retrace back for new entries. As noted earlier in yesterday’s report, it is important to be ready for such events or have stops in place if/when you are looking to have positions on when there are scheduled reports or news events. The buy zone we highlighted seemed to be a great entry price for those who were looking for bullish opportunities and for those who were short based on the sell zone, it allowed us to get stopped out before the major pop higher, so potentially let us cut trades short before they could have been 10-15 pts against you.
Looking at things today, we are 11+ pts higher in the ES market, and bulls are in control across the board on the market action scanner. If we do see selling opportunities, realize you are going against the grain and may not see the strong momentum behind the position. If we do get short, I think we have a tough time getting through the 2050-2046 zone. This is where the weekly POC is and the Daily Top. On the bullish side, we are hitting new highs for the year. Bulls are looking toward that Dec 30th Swing high @ 2067.75 as well as looking to push longer term to the 2095 weekly Top level. Market Action Scanner SP Odometer shows all time frames Green Bullish and we are above the Top zones on 3 of 4-time frames.
Looking at the 30 min SnapShot chart, we see that we have a very tight zone pressed up on the highs here. With zones this tight, it is easy for a price to bounce between each zone and easily stop you out. So if you are taking the long or short position you need to be comfortable setting your risk accordingly and perhaps extending by a pt or two. That is your call. If we do break lower I would look to target 2050. On the upside, keep an eye on oil and if that is staying bullish. If we make new highs and grind higher it cold be a slow move so be patient and update risk accordingly. If trading multiple positions do not hesitate to take partial profits or scratching trades, it could take some time to accumulate shorts and squeeze them out. Depending on one’s risk level, if you are looking for swing positions. I do think we retrace back to the 2050 level this week. So if you are looking for short term top, this may be a potential spot.

STOP ORDERS DO NOT NECESSARILY LIMIT YOUR LOSS TO THE STOP PRICE BECAUSE STOP ORDERS, IF THE PRICE IS HIT, BECOME MARKET ORDERS AND, DEPENDING ON MARKET CONDITIONS, THE ACTUAL FILL PRICE CAN BE DIFFERENT FROM THE STOP PRICE. IF A MARKET REACHED ITS DAILY PRICE FLUCTUATION LIMIT, A "LIMIT MOVE", IT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO EXECUTE A STOP LOSS ORDER.
THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING COMMODITY FUTURES AND OPTIONS CONTRACTS CAN BE SUBSTANTIAL. THERE IS A HIGH DEGREE OF LEVERAGE IN FUTURES TRADING BECAUSE OF SMALL MARGIN REQUIREMENTS. THIS LEVERAGE CAN WORK AGAINST YOU AS WELL AS FOR YOU AND CAN LEAD TO LARGE LOSSES AS WELL AS LARGE GAINS.
