Are you feeling some FOMO from missing out on this move today in the markets or specifically #ES_F?

Let me share the analysis I did for the group this week to prepare us for the breakout.

Earlier this week I shared that we were tracking the box from Oct 2021 and that the group and I were looking for 3880 to hold and for us to see a move into 4020.
Here is what I shared with the group: First pic is 4hr Oct box. We were in a choppy 7 day 100 pt box while also creating a wedge. After one last HL at wedge support, price moved straight up, broke the box and went towards the next zone at 4360. 2nd Pic was 4hr chart yesterday.

How could you increase your win rate (%) as a swing trader?

Here are a few tricks I personally use that can help you 👇🧵
1. Trade with the market trend

Define the trend of the indices #ES_F #NQ_F #RTY_F and create rules to ensure you initiate new long positions while the market is trending higher.

• Price > 50dma
• 21dma > 50dma
• Etc, it's up to you based on your trading timeframe
2. Make sure the market breadth is confirming the index's move

Sometimes, the market underneath the surface is weak, so you want to ensure strong participation.

• Net new high/low (absolute/#NYHL)
• Advances/Declines (McClellan/#NYSI)

Witam wszystkich, na początku chciałbym bardzo podziękować tym, którzy zrobili retwit mojego wczorajszego posta dzięki czemu tak wiele osób mogło dołączyć.
Dzisiaj powiemy sobie co to jest profil wolumenu z czego się składa oraz jak z niego korzystać w praktyce.
Profil wolumenu pokazuje jak zachodzi proces aukcyjny bazujący na wolumenie. Tworzy on tak zwany rozkład normalny. Jest to najważniejszy rozkład prawdopodobieństwa w statystyce (krzywa Gaussa)
Jego pierwowzorem jest profil rynkowy stworzony przez J.P Steidlmayera w połowie lat 80. Profil ten jest bliźniaczo podobny do wolumenowego rożni się tym że pokazuje proces aukcyjny z perspektywy czasu a nie wolumenu. (Opiszę to innym razem bo nie ma go na TradingV. (sierra, exo)

Down day for the #SPX, and the #VIX closed down -6.26% and below 20DMA

Yesterday: large bearish engulfing candle
Today: Continuation

Despite the lack of sync this looks like a bullish development for $SPX

#ES_F #trading $SPY $ES #options #VIX $VVIX
#XLF was rejected at 20DMA

The sector remains above the 200DMA, and near support

For the October #SPX rally to continue it's necessary for #XLF to hold above $34.40

#trading #banks #options #ES_F $SPX $SPY $ES #DayTrading #Futures #inflation #ratehikes #Fed #Financial
It is in "the pinch", right between the 100DMA and the 20DMA.
One is support, the other is resistance

Let's see which side #QQQ comes out on.

It's still in the uptrend channel.

A low #CPI triggered a 114-point jump that took it above the dominant trendline. At the open, sell orders above that level initiated a pullback that took it 126 points down to the 20DMA

Not what we would call a 1-day reversal, more upside to come
Same picture for #DIA, sell orders above Dec 1 high pushed the #DJI lower

It went down after an impressive initial rally
Bounced from 20DMA

#DJIA will continue to lead the rally

Not a pretty candle, but not exactly a 1-day reversal

#DowJones #trading #options #trading

Same story

Perhaps an uglier candle, closer to a 1-day reversal than $DIA and $SPX.

$RTY looking much better

Bounced from important support in the trading channel

Big volume today.

#IWM needs to catch up with $DJI for accompanying leadership

Today in the markets:

#SPX bounced yesterday from 100DMA, moved higher today on slightly lower volume

Still below 20DMA. Failure to regain that level will be a significant crack in the October rally

Break below 3900 would be the death of the rally


#DJIA and #DIA have been rejected from 20DMA yesterday and today, but #YM_F closed above it today

It is important for DJI and DIA to close above 20DMA

It bounced yesterday from the lower edge of its trading channel

#DowJones #YM_F #trading #options #DayTrading
It bounced yesterday from channel support &continued today with slightly lesser volume

It's still below 20DMA, but still in a short-trend uptrending channel, and a mid-term downward channel

It need to close above 20DMA

on the US open, 1530 Cet, volumes traded on #es_f and #nq_f were monster : 97.6%ile for ES and 99.6 for NQ (over 5 years interval!).
This selling climax triggered a short squeeze: few minutes later another big volume spike marked a short capitulation. ES then rallied to ...
..4010, top of the trading range 3900-4015.

first comments:
1. buyers are now aggressively using selling activity to increase long not only on the bottom (3900) but at mid range too (3945)
2. 4015 is next resistance : it shd be passed soon to confirm this buying strength

3. 3965 and especially 3945 must hold on any pullback. Buyers must defend these levels where they initiated this violent upside attack.
4. If these are broken to the downside, it means that 3900 will soon crash, with target 3780/3800.

#NQ_F #NQ Post CPI landscape. Long setup into continuation, cover at the top of the balance - multi day resistance. A new bull flag is being formed.
Scenario of double top is in play, posted earlier in the morning.
Structural breaks during the upside move keeps the buy side in control. A rejection of the previously accepted level may offer a short setup. Double top first rule.
Read 15 tweets
#NQ_F #NQ A large view. A clear pullback with a first stop around 950ish. A few potential scenarios are presented. A double top with lower high would be preferable for shorts, a back test of the broken wedge is for longs.
A smaller view. The price made to the bottom of the broken consolidation area. A clear bear flag. Post CPI action to watch. The default outcome of this pattern is to resume the downside. A failed bear flag is bullish.
the previous day close 13050ish acceptance/rejection to watch. may set the tone for today's day session.

#NQ_F #NQ A breach of the bull flag formation and downside move into yearly projected zone. At this point, a reversal is highly unlikely. We may see reactions from each level on first test.
Some time ago I posted a weekly view indicating that the wave 3 is about to end and we should expect a pullback - the wave 4 (38.2% ret).

buy side is active at the zone. they may stop the bleeding for now.

#NQ_F #NQ Inside session so far. A narrow range. The ON session range expansion to watch, it would set a short term directional bias to tag along. The air pocket below is a good candidate to fill, but let the market show its hand first.
Market listens :) The air pocket is filled.
At this point the previous day low is a resistance. The bearish sentiment, triggered by yesterday's fake out, is intact. Buyers may attempt to change it at the opening.

Thread 🧵about the market.

1/n Family, friends and some followers ask me where I think the market is heading. Some are bulls, others are bears. It's a good question. Here is my answer. I have no freaking idea. $SPX $SPY $NDX $QQQ #ES_F #NQ_F
2/n Maybe I'm not as smart as some gurus who predict a rebound to new highs, or some others who think this is going way lower. Or, I have learned my lessons. This is what I mean.
3/n During the dot com bear market, after a 20% drop I thought the market was going to rebound. I didn't lose much from trading, I lost from my stock portfolio. Because after it dropped 30%, I sold in panic and took the loss. I didn't add when the market bottomed in 2003.

April was a tough month for risk assets and stocks came under pressure due to (a) Fed policy and (b) elevated valuations.

This liquidity cycle was extreme (unprecedented easing followed by abrupt tightening), therefore we've seen huge moves in stocks in...

Thread 1/5: After seeing such a clean rejection off of the 30m OR (opening range) for #NQ_F on Friday, I thought of @Michigandolf, who loves the 30m OR. I then wondered how often we close below or above the 30m OR. I decided to do the math so you don’t have to.
Although #ES_F did not reject the 30m OR like NQ on Friday, it did reject the open. You can see the highlighted area around open is the 30 second OR, popularized by @paxtrader777 and shared by a few others. My favorite opening range on my chart.
I was surprised, I would have guessed we closed outside of the 30m OR ~50% of the time or less, but actually we close outside of the 30m OR 73% of the time. NQ even closes outside of the 60m OR more times than it closes inside.

December was a brutal month for growth stocks as the previous month's selling continued before a relief rally briefly reversed the downtrend.

At the beginning of the month, I sold out of all stocks and around mid-month, positioned my portfolio for the post-QE..

Fed announced QE "taper" in Nov and accelerated it in Dec....but data shows that over past 4 weeks, its balance-sheet still grew by ~$120b!

In anticipation of the end of QE, hedge funds dumped tech stocks in Nov/Dec. With Fed still pumping $120b/month, will HFs now ↗️ exposure?
After realising that despite QE "taper" announcements, the Federal Reserve's balance-sheet still grew by $120 billion over the past four weeks, I covered my #NQ_F short at a loss, also my long $ futures position and $TLT

I've also increased exposure to growth stocks.
In November, the Fed announced it would reduce QE by $15 billion per month and in December, it announced it would reduce it by $30 billion per month (with view to ending it in March).

Despite these 'hawkish' declarations, its balance-sheet still grew by ~$120b over past 4 weeks!

Portfolio positioning -

Long - US$ futures, $TLT + some growth stocks, $ cash
Short - NASDAQ futures #NQ_F

Portfolio is net short stocks
We are dealing with a QE cycle (not rate hike cycle) -

That'll come later...

In the past, each QE-end was followed by ~20% decline in the indices from ATHs...back then, valuations were way lower too.
Word of caution -

No crystal ball here, so anything can happen....

However, am familiar with stock market cycles and Fed's QE cycles....both suggest caution during H1 '22.

This is not a recommendation, please do own DD and I reserve the right to be wrong.

Wow, my first thread.
Analyzing the NQZ21 contract, I looked at 9/2 to 12/10 and at various opening ranges (OR), gap fills and overnight high/low. I only looked at the last 72 days. I downloaded data from Sierra chart and analyzed it in excel. #NQ_F #NQ
I did use NQ close data from Yahoo finance because the previous close line on SC was being stubborn and not giving me correct data (probably my fault). There’s a bunch of numbers and percentages, you can scroll to the end if you’d like, or ignore it. idc.
30m OR L =LOD 38.9% (28/72)
30m OR H =HOD 31.9% or (23/72)
So 70.8% (51/72) of the time, the 30 min OR puts in HOD or LOD.
Which means both sides are broken 29.2% (21/72) because the 30m OR did not put in both the HOD and LOD at any point.
