Euro and ES have looked difficult to trade, a few wild news movements and many low volume chop days however some really nice technical moves.
There were some nice hollow candle trending moves this week.
Here is a chart I made in mid-July. I was watching for re-entry to the red zone.
It reacted off higher timeframe levels. There were and are still some things in the way. Price created a HVN at 1.3383 during the last major downswing and was a key breakout zone in January during the Euros joke move to 1.37.
There is also a downward trend line I had drawn from the last 2 major swing highs. You can bet a lot of others see it too and some others see the key horizontal level also.
I decided to look at the commitment of traders for it – commercials are long and are profitable.
ES is doing a back and fill.
Overnight came off key areas and dvpoc moved up.
Yesterday left a P shaped profile. Too top heavy and nobody really looking to buy there.
I saw a lot of selling at last nights close. Price ping-pong off developing vpoc 1682 which moved UP to 1687.
1695/1702 key above.
MLow+M3Range = 1753
MHi-M3Range = 1618.
Are the minority retailer group driving the market? I don’t know who these commercials are but they seem to be hedging while retailers continue to buying heavily at a ratio of 5:3 long:short.
