Trading Ranges Tighten-Move Ahead- Sep 11, 2020

MARKET COMMENTARY – Nineteen years ago, I was just beginning my journey into trading. I had just hopped off a red-eye that landed at 5am and was fast asleep when my sister called me to turn on the tele – I remember a chill that ran from the top of my head right down to my ankles as I watched the second plane crash into the tower. If you were too young to remember those days, I really saw our nation converge as a group of people. Thinking it was the last time we laid aside our differences to come together.

Traders are holding higher after overnight bouncing. There still remains an air of nonchalance as participants get used to the savage downward retests of support. Volatility continues to stay below 30 as prices fell yesterday, adding to the air of complacency. It seems there is no fear of continued selling as price snaps back. To me, this is a warning signal. Some market analysts are still suggesting this could be a fade that will last through the month of September and into October, but that will remain as suspect if we hold support and close the week above 3454 in the $ES_F.

Recapturing/holding the VWAP with pockets of savage downdrafts is still the likely price flow today also.

INTRADAY -Keep an eye on the 4-hour resistance and support that we discussed in our study webinars and expect battles at these regions as buyers have a lot to prove to maintain bullish price flow on monthly formations- technical damage continues to be extreme. BIG time frames will help you position with the wind at your back.

Deep dips remain staging grounds for buyers but some momentum damage has been done- quick strikes to support and back to resistance appear to be the highest probability for success today- dips could certainly get deeper as price action takes little time for moving into support tests.

If you find yourself being chopped up, widen your time frame or take time away from your screens. This is a time when less is more.

Tightening ranges suggest a big move in either direction is ahead. This is a whipsaw grind with tests of both support and resistance ahead and we are seeing how savage the retracements can be, but bullish traders will attempt to be bold once more. We hold below the area near 3451- 3491- giving sellers the overall advantage in the short term, strengthening the chance that we slip back into the shorting zones and supports in our range near 3291.75 to 3226 and lower.

Intraday LONG trading from support edges like ABOVE the VWAP or tight moving averages will give you the least risk event for engaging – removing your trade at resistance will allow you to participate – understanding that countertrend bounces can be swift and sharp but will likely fail under the broken structure of the market.

Intraday SHORT trading from resistance edges like the old highs or bigger moving averages will give you the least risk event for engaging. Follow the candle trend until candles stop breaking higher.
