  • This morning I am watching the Russell trade sideways inside of a price wedge. I am looking to buy the lows and sell the highs of the range until I see a breakout one way or the other. Overall, I will be buying pullbacks until the wedge tightens up, then, I will be sitting on hands until I see a breakout set-up.

  • Right now I am watching the Russell trade higher off of its moving averages. I am looking for price to continue higher, but I would like to buy pullbacks. I am looking for price to pullback into the cloud once more, or all the way to one of its buy zones below.

  • Right now the Russell is trading in a large bearish price channel. Price is not, however, testing a sell zone. I am looking for a move higher into a sell zone before I look to sell.

  • Right now I am watching as the Russell breaks out of its price wedge. I am looking to buy a pullback out of the price wedge and take price higher. We do have a significant amount of supply overhead that I am going to be careful of. Overall, I am looking short until price pulls back into one of the buy zones, preferably, outside of the wedge.

  • This morning I am watching the Russell trade inside of a large sell zone on the 6 renko chart. I am looking to sell price back down into the bearish price channel below. I want to see price push below its moving average clouds before I look to get in short.




E-Mini Russell 60 Minute
  • The Russell is currently trading around the highs of its price channel. I am looking to sell down to demand at the 1126.0 area. Price has continued to hold the upper trend line so I will be sitting on hands until I see a breakout to the downside.

  • Right now I am watching the Russell trade in a big bearish channel. I am looking to sell the highs of the bearish channel and take price right back to the downside. We really have no major demand until the 1125.9 area, so I am looking for a big push lower today. I am overall bearish on price at this point.
