Emini sell signal and test of 2700 big round number
Pre-Open market analysis
The Emini gapped down and triggered a sell signal on the daily chart yesterday. Since yesterday was not a big bear day, it was not a strong sell entry bar. Because yesterday was a bear day, it is a weak buy signal bar for today. Consequently, yesterday will probably be the start of a bull flag. The pullback could last for a few days.
Less likely, the bears will get a big bear trend day today. If the bears start to create big bear days this week, the pullback from the breakout above the April high will grow into a bear trend reversal.
Overnight Emini Globex trading
The Emini is down 2 points in the Globex market. Because the past 4 days were mostly sideways, the odds favor a lot of trading range trading again today. Furthermore, there will probably be at least one more small leg up on the daily chart within the next week. Therefore, today will probably not be a big bear trend day.
EURUSD Forex market double top bear flag and parabolic wedge sell climax
The EURUSD daily Forex chart broke strongly below the May 9 bottom attempt. Yet, the 2 day selloff is climactic. In addition, it is following a parabolic wedge sell climax. Climactic selling usually leads to a trading range. That range will probably last at least a month and be at least 300 pips tall. Furthermore, it will probably begin within a couple of weeks.
However, there is no bottom yet, and there are magnets below. But, a bottom can come at any time after consecutive sell climaxes to near support. Therefore, if there is a strong bull reversal day within the next week, traders will see it as a buy signal bar. It would be a lower low double bottom with the May 9 low. The bulls would begin to buy. They will buy above strong bull bars and below prior lows. In addition, the bears will switch from selling at the market to selling rallies. Furthermore, they will take profits below prior lows. The result will be a transition into a 2 month trading range.
Overnight EURUSD Forex trading
The EURUSD 5 minute Forex chart fell 90 pips overnight. While it has been in a bear channel for 4 hours, the channel is tight. That reduces the chance of a big rally within the next few hours. Since channels typically evolve into trading ranges, that is what is likely over the next couple of hours.
Because the daily chart is in a sell climax, a strong reversal up can come at any time. If there is a sharp 50 pip rally, the bulls will swing trade, expecting follow-through for at least a day. Until then, they will only scalp for 10 pips.
Since the daily chart is in a sell climax and near support, the bears will be quick to take profits. In addition, the selling has slowed over the past 2 hours. Consequently, day trading bears will sell rallies and scalp for 10 – 30 pips. While the overnight selling might continue all day, it is extreme and more likely to stop. The odds favor a trading range for the next few hours.
Summary of today’s S&P Emini futures price action and what to expect tomorrow
The Emini was in a bull trend today. By going above yesterday’s high, it triggered a buy signal on the daily chart. Also, by going back above the April high, it again triggered a buy signal on the monthly chart. However, the late selloff turned today into a weak entry bar for the bulls and tested both buy signal bar highs. Yet, the odds still favor a move above Monday’s high within a few days. At a minimum, the bulls want a 2nd consecutive bull bar on the weekly chart, which means that they want Friday to close above Monday’s open.
