E-mini range bound after bear spike

Brooks Price Action - 05-07-2012 Monday

pending chart 1356

Trending trading range day, trying to base for bear rally for a day or two before another leg down. Less likely, bottom of 60 minute trading range and then bull breakout to new high of yesterday

  • Monday, May 7, 2012
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday was bear spike and then trading range since 27. Gap down, strong bull bar, after large two legged pullback in a bear move yesterday so good setup for low of the day and final flag buy. Ok swing and probably scalp buy
  • Bar 3 - Always in long, 3 bull bars but still could be or short. Odds are buyers below since strong up and context good for minor bottom
  • Bar 6 - Strong bull bar at moving average, higher low, but top of trading range since 27. Ok swing and scalp, but in trading range, better to scalp or wait
  • Bar 8 - Two bar revresal, double top, bear bar, ok swing short and probably scalp. Probably still always in long
  • Bar 9 - Two bar revresal, big bull bar, but top of trading range so wait
  • Bar 11 - Fail, failure buy, possible triangle 3 7, but doji signal bar. Another fail, failure at moving average. Probably buyers below
  • Bar 13 - Two legged pullback in a bull move 10, trading range day, fail, failure breakout 11, probably still always in long, but not strong signal bar
  • Bar 17 - 2 big bull bodies, no tails, more up. Buyers below. A low of today og buying pressure today so odds favor sideways to up
  • Bar 19 - Bull breakout but tail and top of trading range so not strong buy
  • Bar 21 - Two legged pullback in a bear move 17, top of trading range, but tight channel and doji. Now above moving average so moving average probably will be support after 3 prior fail, failure breakout of moving average
  • Bar 23 - Two legged pullback in a bull move above moving average but dojis and tight trading range and top of trading range day. Wait
