Opening Range then higher high major trend reversal, then new high of the day and 2nd higher high major trend reversal

  • Wednesday, June 27, 2012
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday = weak bull channel but ended with large two legged pullback in a bull move. Gap but tail so sellers above. Strong seasonals into July 5
  • Bar 2 - Bull body so buyers below. Might get pullback to moving average and then or buy or long so might be ok sell or short scalp
  • Bar 5 - Strong bull reversal bar, breakout pullback buy or long at moving average, possible low of the day. Ok swing buy or long, but ok to wait until after report
  • Bar 7 - Close on high, 3rd bar up, always in long, buy or long closes
  • Bar 8 - Close near high, more u, traders buying market and close
  • Bar 9 - 3rd big bull bar. Still buying closes, but might get pullback after 5 bars up. Buyers below
  • Bar 12 - Three inside bars in a row but doji 10 so lower probability. Ok buy or long with stop below 12 or bottom of three inside bars in a row 10, but since tight trading range, might fail, failure. Better to scalp or wait
  • Bar 13 - Bear reversal bar, fail, failure one legged pullback in a bull move, two legged pullback in a bear move 3, but tail and still always in long so low probability sell or short
  • Bar 15 - Bear breakout but tail. Still always in long, but bears want channel down and high of the day
  • Bar 17 - Fail, failure breakout but bear body. Wait. Bears want channel, which means lower highs and lower lows, but even if gets above 13 high and makes a higher high, the channel will probably evolve into a trading range instead of a bull channel. Wait
  • Bar 18 - Outside up bar but 16 not good buy or long. Wait. Still always in long
