  • Monday, January 28, 2013
  • Bar 1 - 8 bull bars on daily so probably 80% close below open of day today. Expanding triangle 57 65, bear doji, sellers above buyers below
  • Bar 2 - Small bull doji at top of 30 bar trading range and lots of bear bars so sellers above
  • Bar 5 - Bear breakout, possible measuring gap
  • Bar 6 - Bear follow through, always in short, more down. Swing stop above 5 or 3. Maybe 70% chance 1 = high of the day
  • Bar 7 - Double bottom 76, two legged pullback in a bull move 2 but doji and only 1 bear body today so sellers above
  • Bar 8 - Big bear bar so possible exhaustion gap. Should hit 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average
  • Bar 10 - Test 60 minute 20 bar exponential moving average and low of yesterday, two legged pullback in a bull move 2, expanding triangle 53 76, but always in short. Sell climax should might bounce approx. Ten bar, two-legged correction, but better to sell or short rally.
