Trading Update: Tuesday November 29, 2022
Emini pre-open market analysis
Emini daily chart
- The Emini failed to break out above the November 15 high and sold off, breaking under the 4,000 big round number. The Emini bears want close below the November 1 breakout point.
- The 4,000 big, considerable round number is such a significant price that traders should expect to oscillate around it for some time.
- The bears want to get a close below the November 1 breakout point gap. This would be a sign of strength by the bears and increase the odds of a test down to the November lows.
- While the bulls have done an excellent job with the rally that began at the October low, and the bulls have targets above, the bears are creating decent selling pressure.
- The targets above include the September 12 low and high (same day). Since the market is in a trading range, it could sell off down to the November low before the rally begins, which tests the September 12 price level. The market does not have to stop at the September 12 magnet. It could try all the back to the August high as well.
- Overall, traders will pay attention to see if the bears can get another bear close today. If the bears can achieve that, it will increase the odds of getting a close below the November 17 low and a measured move down to the November low.
Emini 5-minute chart and what to expect today
- Emini is down 1 point in the overnight Globex session.
- The market has been going sideways during most of the Globex session.
- As always, Traders should expect a lot of trading range price action on the open. Traders must be patient and consider waiting for 6-12 bars before placing a trade.
- Often, the open range can have huge bars that quickly reverse. It is essential to ensure one is not buying high or selling low in a trading range unless the context makes sense, such as a strong breakout.
- If the market is going to for an intense trend day, there will be plenty of time to enter the trend’s direction.
- It is tempting to see a day like yesterday and think that if one gets shorts and holds all day, they will catch a big move. While that is true, yesterday is an outlier, unlike most days. Most days have over 4 hours of sideways trading.
- This means traders should assume that all breakouts will fail until there is a clear, strong breakout with follow-through.
- Traders can also wait for a double top/bottom, or a wedge top/bottom, before looking to place a trade.
- Traders need to pay attention to the open of the day as well. The day is likely to have a lot of trading range price action, which means the open of the day will likely be a magnet all day.
- Overall, the bears, want today to be another bear close; however, more likely, today will do something to disappoint the bears.

EURUSD Forex market trading strategies
EURUSD Forex daily chart
- The EURUSD is continuing to stall at the 2017 low. While the bulls had a strong breakout with follow-through on November 10 and 11, the market has been sideways for 12 bars after the breakout.
- This increases the odds of the market being much closer to neutral and the bulls only having a slight advantage in probability. If the bulls were mighty, the market would be racing to a higher price and not going sideways.
- The bears see the November 10 and 11 bull breakouts as a vacuum test of the 2017 low. These bears try their best to convince traders that they are in control. They can do this by causing the market sideways and developing more bear closes.
- The bears see yesterday as a double top with November 15. Yesterday was also an outside down bar, which increases the odds of the market going sideways. Outside bars typically act more like trading range bars than trend bars.
- Even if the bears get a downside breakout, bulls will buy it after a couple of legs down, betting on continued trading range price action. The daily chart has been in a bear channel for over a year and a half. Bear channels typically convert into trading ranges, which has happened over the past two months. This means the odds favor higher prices and test previous lower highs in the bear channel.
- Overall, traders should expect the market to continue sideways to up. However, if the bulls do not get an upside breakout soon, the likelihood of a downside breakout that tests the November 10th low will increase.
