Ongoing Narrative / Commentary
The overnight session has broken out of the balance area on the strong NFP report, however the overall Globex range is very balanced and also has a 45 degree line from low to widest point. Carry forward all of this in your narrative.
Although we are opening within balance, I am calling for shock and awe and the potential for early trade in the premarket indications due to the economic data and the fact that all eyes are on this breakout level. Aggressive traders can potentially be short early against the ATH.
Lastly, note how relatively weak the /NQ futures are in relation to the /ES. The divergence is pretty staggering. The /ES will need the /NQ’s to get in gear if it wants to sustain a breakout here and have a true “look above and go”.
- Your main focus today should be on the RTH High which was a double top at the ATH from a previous session. As I write this, we are currently trading right at that level. If the market cannot sustain the breakout, balance rules tell us that there is potential for rotation to the opposing end of balance. Assume strength above this level and weakness below.
- Internals will tell us a lot as will the ONL which was the low of a 45 degree line. Less import than the same pattern in an RTH session but excellent signposts nonetheless. This low should (emphasis on should) be secure. A breach of it would be a sign of weakness and put the prominent POC into play.
