S&P E-Mini Trading for Wednesday, September 26

The December S&P 500 E-Mini contract has fired Low Range Close and Momentum Pinball Buy signals for today's trading. The Low Range Close signal fires when the close is within the bottom 20% of the day's range, and implies that yesterday's late day weakness should carry on through to this morning's trading. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal tells us that if price can demonstrate enough strength to break the first hour high, there might be enough force behind the move to trend even higher. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) have moved into a region where short term cyclical lows often form, and the larger trend is to higher prices. Odds favor continued downside in today's early trading. Sell the break of yesterday's 1435.00 low with a stop just above the 1443.00 Daily Pivot. Price action relative to the Daily Pivot level may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal tells us to change our bias to the upside on a break of the first hour high.

S&P E-Mini Trading for Friday, September 7

The September S&P 500 E-Mini contract has fired 2 Day ROC Buy, 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal, and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The 2 Day ROC Buy signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the upside. The 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal signal is telling us to look for morning follow through on the strong close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has topped. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that IF the first hour's low happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a short position. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) are moving into a region where short term cyclical tops often form, but both the larger and more immediate trends are to higher prices. Odds favor continued upside in today's early trading. Buy the break of yesterday's 1432.25 high, or even earlier if price can demonstrate strength above 1422.25 level of the Daily Pivot. But stand prepared to exit or even reverse if we get appropriate price reversal patterns and/or Oscillator Divergence near important resistance levels. Our Normal High Range Projection level of 1445.50 or the Extended High Range Projection level of 1456.50 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place, as would be a test and failure of yesterday's high.

S&P E-Mini Trading for Friday, August 24

The Pattern Trapper Market Update Blog is a companion piece to the FREE! Daily Pattern Signals Report.

The September S&P 500 E-Mini contract has fired 2 Day ROC Sell, 90-10 Low Continuation, and Momentum Pinball Buy signals for today's trading. The 2 Day ROC Sell signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the downside. The 90-10 Low Continuation signal tells us that yesterday's late day move lower is likely to continue on into today. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal suggests that we'd want to consider longs if price is strong enough to break the first hour high. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) have moved into a region where short term cyclical lows often form, but the larger trend is to higher prices. Odds favor continued downside in today's early trading. Sell the break of yesterday's 1398.00 low with a stop just above the 1405.25 level of the Daily Pivot. Price weakness below the DP may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal, however, tells us to change our bias to the upside on a break of the first hour high.
