E-mini S&P sees double top in trading range

Brooks Price Action - 09-12-2012 Wednesday

pending chart 1537

Trading range day, double top, then double bottom and close near high of the day

  • Wednesday, September 12, 2012
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday was trading range day with bear channel = bull flag at end. Gap but tails so basb/ fomc report tomorrow and weekly magnets above. Odds favor up, but might reverse at magnets and then sell off to bottom of daily channel. Be ready after report tomorrow
  • Bar 4 - 2 bear bars, 1t fail, failure breakout of last week high = high of past 4 years, close on low so possible high of the day and swing sell or short but 4 small overlap bars and 4 day trading range so trading range more likely
  • Bar 6 - Two legged pullback in a bull move 1, fail, failure breakout but weak signal bar. Wait
  • Bar 8 - Outside bar surrounded by inside bars, close on high, wedge bf 2 5, or two legged pullback in a bull move, but not at support. Wait. Breakout mode after reversal down and up
  • Bar 11 - Outside bar surrounded by inside bars. 50% chance either 3 is high of the day or 8 is low of the day. Should test moving average below so maybe better for bears
  • Bar 12 - Strong bear breakout, always in short, sell or short close, more down
  • Bar 13 - Bear follow through, more down. Tail, so not strong
  • Bar 14 - Breakout pullback sell or short but doji and middle of yesterday trading range so might be buyers below
  • Bar 15 - Another tail so buying pressure. 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average magnet below
  • Bar 16 - Another tail. Should hit 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average but bear will probably exit above since too many tails and trading range for 4 days
  • Bar 17 - Two bar reversal, parabolic wedge, but 7 bars down. Better to not buy or long. Might be trending trading range day. Wait
