Trending trading range day

  • Monday, January 7, 2013
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday was weak bull but mostly trading range. Gap down but tails so trading range bar and buyers below and sellers above
  • Bar 3 - Bull inside bar but tails and 2 sideways bars so tight trading range. Buyers below sellers above. Bad for stop entries
  • Bar 4 - St 1 but tails and tight trading range. Probably buyers below.
  • Bar 5 - 2nd reversal low of yesterday so probably ok buy or long scalp, but bear body and ok better to wait. Possible low of the day
  • Bar 7 - 1st breakout bar of day, close above prior bar. Probably always in long
  • Bar 9 - Fail, failure breakout high of the day but3 bars up and always in long so probably buyers below. Looks like small trading range so might get trending trading range day
  • Bar 11 - Breakout pullback from 5 two legged pullback in a bull move but 3 bars down and top of trading range. Wait
  • Bar 14 - Wedge bear flag at moving average but doji. Yesterday tight trading range and close of yesterday = magnet above. 12 and 13 bull gap bars so buying pressure. Might bet bull breakout of wedge bear flag and measured move up
  • Bar 16 - W bear flag at moving average but too much buying pressure so lp sell or short. Might get 2 small legs down to 11 low
  • Bar 19 - One legged pullback in a bull move, but sellers above for 2 legs down
  • Bar 23 - Two legged pullback in a bull move but doji and below moving average. Wait. Tight trading range so bad for stop entries.
