Trades_Jan0409

Today was an interesting day. A Strong open (about 8 pts up in @ES) signaled
a solid up day with Dow may closing at least 100 points up. Pre-market Flag setup
is also an interesting setup with a potential trade.

Pre-market, price retraced to the Globex Mid point in a Flag setup.
Initial reaction was to wait for the Pivot (1114.75) buy.
But right after the open the trend was clear. I wanted to buy above
Globex High (1120.5) with a setup to pHI: 1124 to Fib. Zones Range (1125-1126).

1. I placed an order of 8c at 1121 just above GBXHigh. Filled at 1121.25.
Targets were set at 1124-1125. Also Stop set at 1118 (3 points), just
below the bands… About 10-12 minutes later all Contracts hit the targets.
Closed few at pHI. Check Internals, CMI and kTrend for a pullback.

2. Around 11am, market lost its momentum and trading very slow. Still
uptrend as SuperBars were strong. No Patterns formation visible other than simple breakouts.
Trade in the direction… But my CT instinct kicked in on red CMI Ribbon.
So, I took a 3c short with a very short time frame ideas. Also, betting on market
trading at R2 and may be tired. Wanted 1-2 points on 3c. About 10-15m
later, still prices were printing GREEN SuperBars. I was in 1 pt profit
so, I peeled them out slowly.

3. 1.30pm: Still thinking it will move up. CMI5 turned RED around 12.30pm.
R2 seems solid resistance. Saw first Red on CMI15…. A risky setup.
Traded Short thinking there will be TICKDUMP and then moveup. Wanted a CT
trade with Quick-in-Out for TickDump. Placed a stop above R2. Got just 1 point
for all 3cs about 2pm…

4. 2.30 pm: Placed a Buy above R2 with 3c.. Never traded. Around 3pm, I closed and walked off.

Only Four Trades today in @ES. Not focused on other instruments as no clear patterns were
emerging other than straight upside.
